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'.

Silves Golf Course try not to play after Seniors Q
from United Kingdom
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.
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
from United Kingdom
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.
