Golf Courses near Praia da Luz

Below are some of the nearest Courses to Praia da Luz, however there are at least a dozen more within an hours drive
If you are visiting the Algarve from the U.K, I strongly recommend you book (if possible) your golf before you travel as it can save you a considerable amount of money. Adding a member to our group at the Palmares course was £15.00 over the pre booked UK price. Buggies whilst recommended for the hilly courses like Palmares, Gramacho and Parque are pretty pricey (£30 - £35) and can be in short supply during the high season.

Golfe Dos Alamos

Alamos Course

This is the second course to be developed at Morgados do Reguengo, just north of Portimao.
This new course (2006) is a complimentary course to Golfe do Morgado right next door. At 6200 yards, par 71 it is a shade shorter than the Morgado course. With quite a varied landscape, including lots of meadow type flowers, the course runs next to two large lakes, through wide valleys with superb views of the Monchique mountain range to the north. The course has a couple of handy toilet 'blocks', one halfway out the other halfway in.
The large clubhouse (shared with the Morgado course) affords an excellent ‘gallery’ view of the Morgado course / eighteenth. A nice bar that does light meals and snacks, combined with an extremely smart restaurant. Facilities include chipping and putting greens, club hire, trolleys and buggies.

Alamos Golf Course

2007 Update: The fairways have now been completely landscaped and have grown in nicely, a tremendous improvement for playability as well as visually. The greens are to an exceptional standard and boy are they fast. It will require a good eye to read the lie as they are rarely flat and a putt to the flag could take you much further away if you are not careful. This is becoming a favourite.

Directions: Take the road to the north from Portimão in the direction of Monchique and Silves and under the A22 Motorway. From the access roundabout of the A22 follow the signs to Monchique and Silves. After 1.1 kms take the signposted left turn and drive a couple of hundred metres where you take the right turn into the Morgado Estate. Follow the track to the Club House. This new and shorter route from the Portimão-Monchique road to the Clubhouse and facilities knocks about 10 minutes off of the original routing, which was a couple of km's further on. (April 2006).

Alto Club Golf

Alto Club

Situated near the town of Alvor, 45 minutes drive from Faro, 20 minutes drive from Lagos toward Faro. This was the last course designed by the legendary Sir Henry Cotton, the triple winner of the British Open. It embodies his belief that a golf course should test players with low handicaps, but also provides a pleasant game for golfers of only average level. The course, with the beautiful Monchique mountains as its back-drop, runs through two valleys and offers winding fairways and gently undulating greens. Make sure you play a good 18th hole as it leads up to a basin right in front of the lovely (new 2003) club house that adds the finishing touch to a course that must be on your list to play in the Algarve.

Directions: Turn off the EN 125 towards Alvor. On the Portimão - Alvor road, turn right at the turn for Praia de Rocha.

Boavista

Boavista3 kilometres (2 miles) north west of Luz. This course is set in  a beautiful location on a headland between Lagos and Praia da Luz, There are great views of the bay of Lagos, and the Monchique mountains in the distance.  Boavista offers two distinct types of play providing a variety of attractive and interesting holes. From the first to the last putt on the 18th green it promises a sensible game for the average player.  With breathtaking views, spectacular scenery and the Atlantic Ocean, which is visible from most holes, all combine to make this course a delight for the golfer. These days most of the early fairways are flanked with villas which may be disconcerting for some.

Morgado de Reguengo

Morgado Course
Morgado

This course is one of the newer courses to open in the Algarve (2003). Located just to the north of Portimão (about a 30 minute drive from Luz). The course is laid out in a large 980 hectare estate in the foothills of the Monchique mountains. Quite different to most other courses on the Algarve as it is very open with wide fairways. A second course (Golfe dos Álamos) should be open for April 2006. It have smaller greens than the Morgado course which will place a premium on accurate approach shots. A new and shorter access road from the Portimão-Monchique road to the Clubhouse and facilities is almost complete. Facilities include a Driving Range, Putting Green, Buggies, Trolleys, Club Hire, Pro-shop, Golf Academy, Restaurant, Bar.

Palmares

Palmares Course
Palmares

5 kilometres (3 miles) east of Luz. This course is laid out on the side of a south-facing hill overlooking the Bay of Lagos. We think it is the most attractive location of all the golf courses we've visited in the Algarve. The views as you play your round are quite breathtaking (Check out the 16th). The first hole drops, some 300 plus feet, from the clubhouse down to the beach with great views toward the Cape. Five of the holes are placed on the sand dunes with the fifth, a par-5 of 550 metres making a real challenge. At present there are few villas clustering the fairways so the feeling of openness as you play is very refreshing.

Parque da Floresta

Parque da Floresta
Parque da Floresta

 Located 15 kilometres (9.5 miles) miles west of Luz, the course is set in a hilly countryside with some dramatic holes. The setting of this course is 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 roll up and down through hills and really demand accurate shots and good placing, otherwise you'll have a frustrating game. A buggy is strongly recommended unless you are super fit. Definitely not a course for the faint hearted.

Silves Golf

Silves Golf Course
Silves A new course for the start of 2007. Whilst Silves is a quiet, peaceful spot,  the new course is anything but the proverbial walk in the park.
This is a course where target golf reigns supreme. An example being the drive at the opening hole which has to negotiate two water hazards on both flanks. A brave and straight shot will benefit you with a relatively easy uphill approach shot.
Silves encourages and rewards attacking play. It has a natural beauty and an elegant design. The excellent condition, pretty much all year round, is ideal for possible low scoring. For a test in precision, this course has few equals. It is the archetype of man-sized parkland golf.
Most holes offer a spectacular mountain and valley view, overlooking palm trees and olive groves. You may even pick a few oranges or even figs along the way to the next tee ( as long as you are out of sight of the course marshal ).
The severity of the bunkering is enough defence against the onslaught of the games big guns. If you are lucky / unlucky the smell of the nearby cork factory occasionally pervades the normally clean air.
