As the Pine Cliffs name of the course indicates this popular nine hole course located in pine trees on the cliff top to the east of Albufeira and managed by the Hotel Sheraton. The ninth hole is nicknamed the Devils Parlor. As the most challenging hole of the course it asks for a drive over a shallow ravine. To console the players who fail in their shot there are attractive views down on the beach below. Although it is really an undemanding course for the average player it attracts return visitors due to its general charm.
Pine Cliffs Reviews
The amazing view.
Very nice and short 9 holes course. Flexible and nice staff. The Course is worth a visit especially because of the signature hole number 6. Nearly at the coast line on the top of the cliffs you find yourselves teeing out. Crossing the Valley (little Valley) and a flying golf ball to the green area. Not difficult to do but what happens in your head??? I can´t get enough of the amazing view. And the course is in very good conditions.
Nice convenient course, but pace of play too slow!
Enjoyable 9 hole course (played two nines). In reasonably good condition. Only issue was the slow pace of play. We were booked for 2:00 pm but only teed off at 2:20 pm due to the backlog of players. And our round took nearly 5 hours due to the slow play. There seemed to be an unusually large number of players who had not played much golf before and who could only hit the ball 50 to 60 yards at a time.

I have to start by saying I was a little sceptical about playing a nine hole course ....twice......but having played 9 my scepticism was misplaced. This is a great course. Beautifully laid out. Well designed holes in a beautiful cliff edge setting.
Compact so no traipsing miles between holes.
All in a great days golf. A big thx to Algarvegolf for their help with booking
