The Balaia course lies on the east side of the popular town of Albufeira tucked behind its Holiday Complex. It is an attractive compact 9 hole course providing any player the choice of improving their iron shots and also their short game. The Balaia Course is correctly named an Executive Course reflecting the challenges of varying degree whether the player is a beginner or more advanced in their game. On the first tee there lies before the player a very attractive view of most of the course with the blue sea as its background.
Great par 3 course
from United Kingdom
Great little challenging course
Which has a little of e everthing
Trees water bunkers hazards the lot
Good outing practice greens and a driving range
Just wish they watched out for those who don't or can't play golf because their etiquette bunkers not being raked, pitch marks not getting repaired, turf being lifted and not being replaced. But don't be put off as this is a little gem for those wanting to learns and those who don't play often
A testing 9 hole 3 par. Course was not busy (April) and was well maintained on the whole. Some tricky holes - plenty of challenges, water hazards and narrow fairways so you need to be able to hit fairly straight regardless of ability. Greens were quite tight and fast. Not too much sand thank goodness. The staff were very helpful and a credit to the course, but the hire clubs were generally of average quality. We enjoyed it nevertheless and would play again.
Great fun !
A lovely little surprise !
Beautiful hilly but short 9 hole par 3 track. Greens very good & receptive (need to be).
Only criticism is too many very short holes (4 under 90 yds).
Played 9 holes, had a beer break, played much better second time round.....don't know if that was due to course knowledge or beer !
Very enjoyable testing course.
