This latest course belonging to the Pestana Group is surrounded by typical Algarve fruit orchards and small farms. The course has been designed to test the golfer's quality in hitting a well directed ball using the correct choice of club. This point is immediately emphasised as you stand on the first tee faced by two water hazards flanking the fairway. The Silves Course has been described as designed for attacking play whilst the bunkers are well placed to cause possible trouble to the 'big hitters'.

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.
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.
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
