Director Jorge Papa of Morgado Golf Course reflects on the past two decades: "20 years have gone since the day when, at the entrance to the Clubhouse, we displayed the 'Open' notice on a basic A4 sheet. With no fanfare, this is how we announced Morgado's launch. The golf course could be accessed through a dirt road that cut through the estate, and its "tender" condition had led to high expectations for the amount of work it would require to join the ranks of the good national golf courses".
"There has been a lot of change since then. We've played home to three different Portuguese Opens, as well as several more professional and amateur tournaments of note. Congratulations are due not just to the golf course itself, but to the entire team", Jorge Papa said.
The historic Portuguese Open has been held at the Morgado Golf Course for three consecutive years (2017, 2018, and 2019), along with numerous other PGA Portugal and Portugal Pro Golf Tour events. It has also played home to various social events and several tournaments at the amateur level of the Portuguese Golf Federation (National Absolute Championship and National Club Championship).
The Morgado Golf Resort consists of not only Morgado and Álamos golf courses, but also the Clubhouse (restaurant and bar), Pro-shop (golf shop), Golf Academy, and an accommodation unit (NAU Morgado Golf & Country Club), all of which have earned it international recognition in recent years, including a ranking of seventh in the 'Best Value Golf Resorts in Continental Europe' category in 2021 and a place in the top 100 of 'Best Golf Resorts in Continental Europe'.(read moreclose)
The course was in good condition, service was good. But the pace of play was very slow : almost 5 hours for 18 holes. No Marshall. Not tempted to return.
News - Hot weather
With high temperatures in the Algarve, Morgado's fairways reach temperatures of 42 degrees Celsius, but the course remains in excellent playing conditions, as a result of the improved work of the maintenance team. Players are advised to choose to play early in the morning.
Good course. Front 9 quite open, back 9 in the hills a better challenge
Course very busy but every one kept up with the group in front 4 hour round which was ok. Course and greens in very good condition. Well done the staff at Morgado.
Very good greens, fairways ok but brown, due to the drought. To be honest, we were a bit shocked of all the unfinished apartment buildings around the golfcourse. it looks sad. First nine holes a bit monotonous. Second nine more beautiful in nature. Staff is gentle. atmospheric clubhouse.
Course in good condition, staff friendly and helpful
Morgado was a real test today we had 20-30mph winds and some rain. The course was excellent but it’s a tough track in these conditions. Greens were slick and true which didn’t help when down hill and down wind. But it was a great day.
Good course. Very enjoyable
Good fun thanks
An excellent course with some great challenging holes
Course in great condition
Another beautiful day at Morgado, most enjoyable

*Signature Hole - 14th
