The Palmares course has been totally transformed by the the American course designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. He has created a mixture of parkland with authentic links style. The 27 holes are laid out on the side of a south-facing hill overlooking the Bay of Lagos. Palmares Course has questionably the most attractive location of all the golf courses in the Algarve. The views as you play your round are quite breathtaking. Five of the holes are placed on the sand dunes with the fifth, a par 5 of 550 metres making a real challenge. For the time being there are no villas clustering the fairways so the feeling of openness as you play is very refreshing.
from United Kingdom Palmares Excellent courses. All Three. No stroke savers were available which for visiting good golfers is essential. Playing off white tees would also be a better option as otherwise it's a 4 iron off the tee for many holes.
Maybe it's a bit rough around the edges on approach to club house and clubhouse itself. Boavista has a better feel for club house facilities. Views from course and veranda at club house are amazing. A little more investment in this area and I would have given it 10/10.
from United Kingdom Great course with spectacular views Beautiful views and a really wonderful course. Definitely my favourite Algarve course. 3 different loops of 9 holes make it different and interesting every time. There are some spectacular holes/sea views on this course.
from Portugal Great course, perfect weather, good starter and cooperative other players
from Austria From the hills to the sea Beautiful views, interesting shape
