The renamed Santo Antonio course from Parque da Floresta is located in the most western part of the Algarve. The architect of this course has created a fascinating course that presents visually attractive views of the surrounding countryside lined on the horizon by the sea. The fairways of the Santo Antonio Course rolls up and down through hills demanding accurate shots and good placing. The Par 3 fifteenth hole of 159 metres is a golfer's dream. Players will find the combination of both fairly steep fairways and possible crosswinds will be quite demanding.
Santo Antonio Reviews
To fast starting and not respecting the tee times
Very nice golf but only the do not respect the time between the teetime
Also special at hole 3 we have problems that the flight on hole 1 play the ball on hole 3 and not respect the rules and we must wait 4 times on poeple that came on our hole
After that they complane that they must wait to long because they must wait on our flight and we must play faster of the Marshall
after 5 holes we did not see them anymore and also we can play normal
For some of our players is was not nice
Easily and wrongly overlooked on the Algarve.
This course takes a little adjustment. Initial dread of long sloping fairways is overcome once you know your system around and the standard f green keeping is admirable . A challenging course needing good course management will see average golfers s ore well. Try being too adventurous and you'll pay a price. All in all, this was a good test of golf and worth a visit greens in excellent condition and a warm welcome from starter and all staff made in an enjoyable experience.
Exciting, hilly course
from United States
We played five courses in the west Algarve recently and this was our favourite. I played it three years ago without a buggy and that is not a good idea. This course is very hilly with lots of raised tees. It's the usual Algarve excellent condition. Golf snobs dismiss it as 'mickey mouse' because of the extreme slopes but as mid handicappers we think it's very exciting with superb views and scenery. It's well worth the extra drive west.
