Best course around
Our favourite course in this part of the Algarve. Friendly place and a very playable course with a good balance of easy and hard holes

Enjoyable golf course
Many good holes, a few not so good. In good condition. You often have to wait on tee due to many par three holes.

Lovely course but very slow. Didn't seem to be enough time between spaces so nearly 5 hour round and 2 group wait on some of the par 3s. 70 euros to hire buggy and 1 set of clubs which I thought expensive

Good holiday course
Very remote location but the Sat Nav found it OK albeit having gone down some very minor roads. The course was very nice with wide fairways & playable rough. Slightly scruffy greens. A lot of walking green to tee so a buggy is a good idea.

Tee time changed from booking on arrival at Club leaving no time for lunch. Facilities average at best. Course layout and condition ok but pace of play poor. Too many non-golfers “playing” with no respect for those with handicap certificates. No towels available for a shower topped off a disappointing experience.

Club set de location de bonne qualité

Good Course in fantastic condition
Good course in fantastic condition, especially as it's fairly new. The fairways are probably the best I have played on and the tees and greens are not far behind. Not a particularly long course but many holes are reasonably tight and you have to think your way round. The 470 mtr par 5 13th is a fantastic hole with an elevated tee looking down on a fairway that winds around a large lake. It's a must play!!

Great course friendly staff
Great course in superb condition, my pick of the Pestana courses. Wide fairways but positioning is vital.....some scary bunkers!

All in all great course great clubhouse and great value for money

First time playing Silves Golf Course
Well maintained and quite a picturesque course with no treacherous hazards or challenges. Not alot of shade as the trees are not mature enough. Overall we’ll come back to play for sure.
Derek from Ireland

Not as picturesque as Vale de Lobo courses but excellent all round course. Only minor blemish was some greens were sanded a little

Silves Golf Course try not to play after Seniors Q
Silves golf courses has some of the most scenic golf holes in the Algarve it was bit of a shame that the greens were not as good. It probably down to the hammering they took during the Staysure Seniors Tour practice and Qualifying rounds the previous week. They had been shaved and they were trying to get them back with lots of water and fertiliser. When i started my round the greens were soaking wet and covered with dry fertiliser that was a bit like putting over large grains of sand and as the sun dried out the greens short puts became a bit of a lottery. But I kept saying to myself at least the sun is shining, I could be at home in the rain.

Populate course with challenges
A good course with some challenging holes. Busy but to be expected with such a popular course.
Martin from United Kingdom

Interesting round
Interesting course with some elevated tees. Feels a lot more open than some other courses in Portugal which I liked with great views of the surrounding area. Could do with better signage!

Silver golf
Played this twice in the week. Good fair test of all golfers. Facilities are being improved so some building in process but not detrimental. Staff very helpful. Some areas on the fairways are wearing and greens need improvement but very playable

portuguese clubs are getting greedy
Silves used to be a pleasant experience but obviously getting greedy. Arrived today for a 2.05 tee time, but did not get away until 3pm. First nine took 2 hrs but second nine took 3.5 hrs due to the heavy traffic put out earlier in the day. Lucky to get in before sundown. Portugal is losing its attraction - too many providers charging high prices for a poor experience of waiting at every hole.
Mike from Portugal

very nice course and is going to get better as the complex is developed

Superb customer service

Excellent course. Small golf club feel , very friendly staff. Put it on your list to play and you won't be disappointed.

Mixed feelings
Some fantastic holes and scenery, especially the 14th signature hole but there is building machinery and materials on view too which should be reflected in the pricing.... also 5 hours for a round when using buggies is far too long... needs on course marshals if they continue to let beginners play
Stephen from Portugal

Wonderful panoramic par 5's
This course has some wonderful holes especially the par 5's, which have great views and wide fairways, not as long as some on the Algarve which makes it more playable, the wind can make up to two clubs difference, so something for even the better players to contend with.
Carl from United Kingdom
on Sun, 10th Sep 2017
Half decent. Not to the standards of other courses near by.

As it pestina and the prices they charge I would have expected better

Stephen from England

This is another course we play every year which is suitable for the higher handicapped golfers , another course kept in very good condition

Not helped by 2 poor holes at 8 and 9
What a gem. Great course not long but you have to think about your shots on each hole. Staff helpful and friendly

Good golf course but I didn't really get on with it
Siene from Italy
on Fri, 19th May 2017
Silves golf is a good course, not to difficult because the fairways are very broad and wide, there not that many trees. So it is a fair deal. The course is well kept and the greens are in splendid condition.

The guy at the bar did not come to the terrace to take an order but when ordering at the bar he did ask for a tip....

Directions could be better.

Gavin from United Kingdom

Better than expected
Better than I was expecting, usual 5 hr round, stuck behind a stag doo/outing of absolute hackers with no knowledge of golfing etiquette but course exciting to play with some great holes right through the course.

Club house had a very local feeling about it, quite 'British' in a way which wasn't what we were expecting but nothing to complain or agree with.

Nice course
very nice course with height differences and an open view almost everywhere.

Possible to walk with a trolley but a bit heavy.

A long afternoon at Silves
Nice environment, course is in good condition. Not a demanding course. Bussy, with slow players. Staff could be more friendly and supportive.
Ian from United Kingdom

Played 4 courses in the Algarve and this was the most popular for our team of 4. Some great tee postions and very well presented and interesting greens. A busy course but well worth a visit.

Silves for a fair game
Second time our group have played this course. It is an excellent course, testing but fair. If you hit a good drive you are rewarded, wayward and you normally pay a penalty.

Good greens, manicured fairways and well positioned tees.

Excellent again although the facilities do not compare with Alamos

Sandy greens in July
Not very good in July unfortunately. Maintenance on the greens, only sand. They should have closed the course.
Peter from Portugal

Busy course good golf
Having had to take raincheck on our original booking. Word of advise, find out when ladies day is and avoid it. We were a 10.00am teeoff but only if the 40 plus lady members had all gone. They hadn't. All of them walk the course we it's along walk.

After they had all gone we were behind a group of young lads on a stag. Still the worse for wear and some who confessed to never having played golf. We opted to reschedule and got out Sunday at 7.30. With no real pressure it as a good test of golf with some lovely holes. Worth playing but it does get very busy so I'd check carefully before opting.

mooie baan in natuurlijke omgeving
wij speelden op vijf banen, die van Silves was voor ons de nr 1. Het is een natuurlijke baan in een aangename omgeving. De greens zijn snel, maar eerlijk
