The Alamos 18 hole golf course is one of the newer courses to be inaugurated in the Algarve. Lying to the north of Portimao it is laid out as a neighbour to its sister course Morgado. The setting is a large 980 hectare estate through undulating small valleys. The immediate main characteristic of the Alamos Course is its large greens which place demand on good putting skills as they are often raised above the fairway approach and involve several levels. Also, the accuracy of the shot of the player will be questioned by deep aggressive bunkers.

Alamos was a welcome change from some of the other Algarve courses which can feel rather enclosed by villas and development. Not a villa in sight here, it's beautiful open country all around with plenty of wildlife. I spotted flocks of flamingos and storks and even bee-eaters here. Oh and I was there to play golf too! It's excellent condition and the greens are particularly good, all interesting shapes and slopes.
Arriving there is the biggest challenge! Alamos isn't signposted - aim for Morgardo because they share the same clubhouse (we didn't know). On entering the estate you go through a security gate and think you're there. But there is 4.5km over cobbled road, past half built and derelict hotels to negotiate first. The clubhouse was almost empty, all very strange. But It's a very nice course overall, good value and we'll be going back next time.
Great course for holiday golf!

An enjoyable course with some nice views and some challenging holes.
The course was in good condition and the pace of play was very good, we got round in a 4 ball in under 4 hours.
Some of the holes on the back 9 are quite 'gentle' in terms of challenge, but these holes present an opportunity to get some birdies and shoot a good score!
Alamos - Great holiday golf

Course is short by modern standards but will challenge all handicap categories to 'think your way around' and put the ball on the right part of the undulating greens. The greens had been sanded before our round (hence the loss of a star) which affected the roll of the ball, but did not prevent us from enjoying the experience.
