Palmares Golf Course

Palmares golf course highlights itself in the Algarve coast because of its prime location, facing the incredible blue scenario of the ocean. A Perfect contrast with the green of this unique 27-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II, which the links holes along the beach and the great views are the highlighting points.
The New 27 Holes Palmares Golf Course designed by Trent Jones Jr reopened mid 2010 and already Golf World magazine, has recently published its ‘top 100 in Europe’ list - and Onyria Palmares is ranked 26th in Continental Europe.

Palmares Golf Course - latest comments and reviews

Catherine Wilson 2022-01-14
One of the best courses I have played in the Algarve. The course is in excellent condition and the staff go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your visit, both on and off the course.

The first of two days of Regional Qualifications in the Algarve has already been played at the stunning Palmares Ocean Living & Golf. The Vinicom team won with 85 points, with cards of 43 from Viriato Teixeira/Rui Mendes and 42 from Rafael Teixeira and António Barreiros. Also qualified for the Algarve Semi-Final were Hole in One Pub/Flinstones (84), Vista Alegre (83), Moneris Lx (83) and Delta Cafés (82). Lunch and the prize-giving ceremony took place at the magnificent Hotel Algarve Casino da Solverde Casinos & Hotels in Praia da Rocha.

Marion Brosens 2022-01-11
Our favorite course and the clubhouse with amazing terrace is a big bonus.

daguzan 2022-01-06
an early start with very thick mist preventing you from enjoying the course

Michael Fahy 2022-01-05
Reception very friendly and helpful.

Geoff Davison 2021-12-09
Enjoyed playing at Palmares some 30 years after my first visit. It is still a spectacular location with a course in great order. Played the Lagos nine first followed by the Praia. Lagos is an interesting and good test of golf but Praia is a disappointment. For those who played the old front 9 Praia is a poor imitation with 3 indifferent par 4's, a poor stopgap par 3 and long hole beside the dunes which is characterless compared to the original. Stick to Alvor and Lagos!

Geoff Schmitt 2021-12-05
Probably the best course in the Western Algarve but can get very busy.

Steven Johnston 2021-11-30
The course was stunning, not too busy and the pace of play was good. We had a small breakfast and finished the day on the terrace with views of Lagos. Would definitely return and play the Praia loop as well

Stefan Portmann 2021-11-28

Simon Walkley 2021-11-24
again no refreshment buggy on course - otherwise very good

Donald Carroll 2021-11-23
DisAppointed with Palmarès course , à slow round but then it was considerably cheaper than other courses

Birgit Gödje 2021-11-21
Today we could change teetime from 12.40 pm to early at 8.24 am . And this was pretty early but perfect for us…. Just the two of us playing in just 3h40 min. Thank you for this sunday Morning ????????????

Birgit Gödje 2021-11-19
Same combination that the day before. Playing time 5 hours, the first were good with the speed, but on the second 9 we had to wait for every stroke.

Birgit Gödje 2021-11-19
We had a booked teetime, due to a competition it was 25min. delayed and at least we played a different course combination that we had booked of better asked for. Ist was not a problem at all, but the following dayes we play now the same combination. The course is too crowded, playing speed very slow. At least too many people on the course.

Ian Gorham 2021-11-17
Slow round. No marshals apparent. No buggy bar. Nice golf course with polite staff, food good quality and came quickly. However the lack of marshals to keep play moving and buggy bar are important misses.

Hervé Maillard 2021-11-16

Johannes Vreeker 2021-11-14
- very nice setting of golf course - beautiful clubhouse and a terrace with a view over the ocean - good reception and friendly people servicing buggy’s and trolley’s - greens okay, however fairways very dry and hard - overall i enjoyed my visit to Palmares

Andrew Smith 2021-11-10
Course was good, have played here before but lacking character with the new clubhouse etc.

Michael Leahy 2021-11-01
The course has deteriorated significantly since we last played it in 2019. Course maintenance had very obviously been cut back. Tee boxes, greens and buggy paths all need remedial work. All investment and energies seem to be going into property development on the site to the detriment of the golf course. I expect we will cut Palmares from our future schedules.

Paul Gilbert 2021-10-30
The new clubhouse is awesome and the course was in fantastic condition. Pace of play was good as well. The only bad news (and this has happened to us many times before) is that Palmares had omitted some friends, who are members, from sharing one of our tee times so we had to tee off an hour later to accommodate them. Absolutely infuriating as our friends had a confirmatory email to prove that their reservation had been made!

Kieran Madden 2021-10-28
super course in fabulous condition

Steve Burton 2021-10-28
No problems at all with registration or timeliness on the course.

pat Finneran 2021-10-27
Very happy with 10 out of 10
Tee Times reply: Thanks Pat for your kind words

Conor O'Brien 2021-10-25
Views are always great. Courses usually good. Played Alvor & Silves courses on this occasion. . Alvor in good condition with good greens but greens on Silves course in poorer condition. Chaos in relation to buggy availability for many golfers, putting both admin staff and golfers under unnecessary stress prior to tee off times--policy of not being able to pre-book buggies needs to be urgently reviewed or else total number of buggies available needs to be increased.

Thomas Ewald 2021-10-22
Sorry, but again over 5 hours to go - it‘s too much. We wouldn‘t book this course for the next years….. They have normaly limited the HCP by 27 - ha,ha, Nobody is interested in this and they people you see playing.... no comment The course and the greens are in Great conditions. But what use is this if you have to wait, wait and wait before each stroke. Conditions got an 8 but…..

Eilander 2021-10-21
Prachtige baan en uitstekende voorzieningen in de vorm van clubhuis en overige faciliteiten.

Oliver White 2021-10-19

Sigurd Klippenberg 2021-10-18
Great course, but a little chaos on first tee. Other than a great experience!

Nick Fry 2021-10-17
Course set up poor with very tough pin positions. Greens on Lagos very poor but Alvor greens ok. Possibly too many people on the course & too many high handicappers

Thomas Ewald 2021-10-15
Fantastic golfcourse but to many People and a lot of bad golfers - we need 5 hours to go…..

Paul Prebble 2021-10-14
The staff and the course were great

Norman Howard 2021-10-13
We played the Praia holes (19-27) first and found the views of the coast and the first hole from the clubhouse outstanding. The golf itself was interesting and quite challenging at times and the experienced player in our group compared it to a links course. We then played holes 1-9 which are quite hilly and we found some of the steep holes quite tough to play but interesting and again some very good views. Tee boxes were generally in good condition, as were fairways (perhaps a little worn in one or two places ) and the greens were not too fast, they played fairly. We were a group of four with mixed abilities and handicaps ranging from 15 to 36 and we all enjoyed in a matchplay battle of two pairs. We would definitely play it again.

Malachy Coleman 2021-10-12
Lagos 9 hole course. Very enjoyable once one aware of layout. Praia ,,,not enjoyable, lacks clear hole layout. Scenery attractive. Staff very helpful.

Sven Buehring 2021-10-12
Very bussy Venue. Good staff. Unfortiunatly no Marshall around. We got almost hiit 3 Times by the group playing behind us. Superb vistas on the Course.

Craig Reynolds 2021-10-12
The course was in lovely condition and pace of play was excellent. Sadly the service for lunch was extremely slow

Malachy Coleman 2021-10-10
Hole 19-27, poorly laid out, bunkers need attention, greens v good, best hole is 27. Hole 1-9 marvellous course, superb views, good par 3s. Staff exceptionally good.

David Thomas 2021-10-10
Great golf course.

Gregory Parker 2021-10-08
My tee time was 2-15 I was supposed to be with two other people but ended up on my own I ended up behind a number of four balls After two hours thirty minutes and eight holes I drove off the course in frustration

Conor kavanagh 2021-10-08
Very good day out on a good course

Westley Macey 2021-10-05
Great scenic course pleasure to play

Keith Peirce 2021-09-30
Good service in getting a tee time. Super course. Slight difficulty in making the payment but otherwise a good experience.

Wolfgang Fox 2021-09-30
I knew the old course with 18 holes. Now we played 9 holes in the dunes. That was not so nice.

Peter John Tholen 2021-09-29
The course was in average condition, the staff were helpful, the layout was OK. Not sure I'd recommend it.

Patrick Mannion 2021-09-28
We book a tee time for 16:30, but we’re given around 15:30, I never checked the details, luckily the girls on reception fitted us, this was much appreciated.

Daniel Kirwan 2021-09-28
Excellent courses.. spectacular views ..

Rick Hewland 2021-09-25
All the lads enjoyed the day.

Ian Cogger 2021-09-25
Very poor reception staff. Poor signage around the course. No drink trolley

Aust Peter 2021-09-23
Great golf course, but incredible long time needed to play it. They should invest in a marshal to accelerate the game.

Keith Ellis 2021-09-23
Excellent course with a new fantastic clubhouse with great food

Carol Born 2021-09-22
Fantastische baan, netjes geregeld goede service. De baan is uitdagend van korte holes tot veel lange banen met hoogteverschillen. De uitzichten lijken op een ansichtkaart

Mr Peter Willcox 2021-09-22
I booked at short notice and was very pleased to obtain a tee time at Palmares. Normally I don’t use a buggy but the distances between the driving range and first tees on the Alvor and Praia loops meant I was glad to have one with the booking. Both 9 hole loops were spectacular and in very good condition. It was a memorable round.

John McNamara 2021-09-21
Very enjoyable round of golf here. We played the 2 nines located away from the water whereas it looked like the best 9 was the one that we didn't get to play. The greens are a bit bumpy and inconsistent but overall the course is in very good condition. We also played the Faldo and O'Connor courses in Amendoeira and rated those higher than the 18 we played here.

Jan Stie 2021-09-17
Love the course, everything was in top condition. Properly toke as many shoots with my camera as with my cluibs. The view from the course is spetacular

Haddock Michael 2021-09-16
Course was in ok condition, greens were slow. Disappointed in the 45 euro charge for buggy, no water provided nor did the staff inform us that there was no drinks trolley etc on a very hot day. Staff in general very pleasant.

Andy Bryant 2021-09-13
Enjoyable course as every with great views across the bay on several holes. Stunning new clubhouse for post game drinks. Don't park in new underground parking though, as not free

M. MICHEL GROSSE 2021-09-12
9 trous PRAIA extraordinaires Le meilleur parcours de l’Algarve avec Monte Rei

Philippe Pineau 2021-09-12
Palmares is a beautiful course, especially the holes on the links (10 to 27). It’s a pity the holes 1 to 9 greens were in poor condition (balls bobbling) and the bunkers really need sand to be replaced (contaminated with mud = sticky, not draining properly). While the holes 19 to 27 are in very good condition throughout (greens, bunkers, etc…)

Andrew 2021-09-12
Our groups favourite course in the West. Last played 4 years ago and great to see the investment in Clubhouse, with no detriment to the course which is always in first class condition. 4th time played since the course was re-designed and opened in 2009 and even got to play the Praia course which was a welcome surprise. Top notch course & service

Bertin Pietsch 2021-09-11
Nice Golfclub. Condition at this moment not so good.

John Robertson 2021-09-09
Had a fantastic day, courses in great condition, especially the greens. Our starter Daniel was excellent ..very friendly and helpful clubhouse is great

Mark Hatcher 2021-09-09
Enjoyed playing the Alvor and Lagos courses. Very picturesque holes although fairways were poor with little grass and some greens were inconsistent.

Philippe Pineau 2021-08-26
Palmares is a great course. Beautiful views, nice set up in natural landscape. Everything in very good condition except for the greens on the course! The practice greens are excellent (bent grass, newly built). But, currently, those on the course (mix grass, grainy) are not smooth and do not allow true roll (ball chatter, snake, bobble, abrupt stop). No possibility to clean balls on the course. Ball washers on tee boxes out of service or dry. No ball washer on buggy. Getting buggies was a bit chaotic. Waited a long time = could not practice before play.

Daniel Wall 2021-08-25
We played Lagos and Praia, Amazing course and layout with stunning views across the bays, we really enjoyed it!

Roland Heal 2021-08-18
Played Praia/Lagos courses which is a mixture of links and normal, great set up and the staff were very accommodating, we turned up early and a competition had just teed off so they moved us in front which helped and had no hold ups and got round in 3 hours, very nice new clubhouse with great views of the beach

Roland Heal 2021-08-13
Very plush clubhouse, friendly staff and an extremely challenging course, Pria has Plenty of ball sellers with pro V1 10 for €10, over all a great experience

Eric Deprey 2021-08-03
Very nice and very friendly!!

Stuart Hill 2021-08-02
Eur 45 for buggy

Thomas Hawker 2021-07-23
Great golf course. Played Alvor and Lagos (Praia was closed for maintenance). Challenging, but very fair. Beautiful views of Alvor from one side and Lagos on the other side.

Andy Bryant 2021-07-21
New clubhouse very smart, course in great condition, quick round. Just missing the beer buggy

Helien Verhagen 2021-07-06
Wauw what a difference with 2 years ago. Staff is very friendly and a stunning clubhouse. Maintenance went up drastically.

Terence White 2021-06-27
Another Brilliant course , I would say a much harder course for myself so I was a bit slow? all the staff around the course kept offering any assistance ? drinks etc , we were slow but not keeping people waiting as it was not very busy but the staff did not say anything at all but were helpful and eager to assist us.

Philippe Pineau 2021-06-21
Palmares est un très beau parcours: 27 trous dont certains sont sur le links. Vues superbes des collines vers la mer, Alvor et Lagos. Départs et fairways en très bon état. Certains bunkers auraient besoin de sable (fond boueux). Les greens sont très décevants (vitesse irrégulière, la balle saute), particulièrement les 1er 9. Très loin de la super qualité des greens d’entrainement. Je présume que les greens du parcours seront refaits pour offrir une qualité cohérente avec le reste du parcours. Les trous sont bien dessinés, en épousant le relief naturel. Ce n’est pas un parcours pour débutants (ou alors apportez beaucoup de balles). Nouvelle Club house ouverte il y a quelques mois. Belle terrasse avec vue sur la mer. Buggies quasiment neufs. Certains inter-trous (green au départ suivant) sont assez longs: Si vous n’êtes pas un très bon marcheur, prenez une voiturette. Personnel accueillant et compétent.

Huss 2021-06-20
What a nice course!

David Salvesen 2021-06-14
I have played Palmares many times and it never fails to be a fabulous day of golf. The course, the staff, and the new clubhouse are excellent. Only caveat is to be aware that a lot of their deals do not include a buggy, for which they then sting you for euro 45

Véronique Gantoy 2021-06-14
Superbe parcours . Magnifiques paysages

Peter Attwood 2021-06-12
Friendly welcome at reception, buggy caddy and starter and course martial kept things moving. Good experience

Mark Hughes 2021-06-10
Interesting course, you definitely need a “sighter” here, as it can be tricky to work out where the greens are on some holes. A few marker posts would help as well. Greens, fairways and tee boxes were in good condition. The course is made up of “three” nines and I played 10-27 one day and 1-18 the next and for me the “links” nine are the toughest. The rough is very punishing, so expect to lose a few balls if you are wayward, especially off the tee. The starter(s) were very helpful, looking up the slope rating for me and giving me some guidance on the first tee as I’ve never played here before. No drinks buggy, which would have been nice given the temperature - not sure if this was due to COVID-19 restrictions? The new clubhouse is very nice, small pro shop/reception and the food looked good although we never ate there. Expect to pay golf club prices for beers etc staff are courteous and attentive. I’ve given it 8/10 as I would have liked a few more marker posts on the.course. Ps would recommend a buggy, we walked the first day - holes 10-27 and it was hard going in the heat, (I regularly play 3 times a week so was used to walking) so took a buggy the following day and it was a much more enjoyable experience!

Peter Attwood 2021-06-06
I have played Palmares since 1986 and it was my favourite course. A few years ago I played just after it changed to 27 holes and my review was far from complimentary. I played again two years ago and it was better but a day or two ago I went to try my arm out on the driving range. I was walking down and two young men in a club buggy stopped and offered to take me down not only that they drove me to the Clubhouse and then back to the range. The range itself has turf that many clubs would want on their fairways it was excellent. Yesterday I started at the 19th after explaining to the young lady at check in that I had never played them. Then you shall start there today she said. The starter was a mine of information and very friendly The whole course is in excellent condition and after two holes I had it to myself. I hope that more people will soon be around to play. The views are tremendous as they always will be and the new holes I found quite testing. Tthe whole course has settled down and is a joy to play as it always was.

Paul Philand 2021-06-01
Excellent food. Course was good -,very comfortable buggy.

Philippe Pineau 2021-05-16
Great courses. Whether you prefer links or hillside, Palmares has both. Overall very good condition, but need to remove grass cuttings. Nice club house. New buggies. Good signage on the courses. Good pace of play. Not for beginners: Several holes need a bit of carry over high rough to reach the fairway. Contoured greens will test your putting skills. Pity they are not of bent grass like the putting green by tee off #1. Especially at this time of the year (mid May 21).

Carlos Ferreira 2021-05-15
Great golf, fantastic views all round . Can't misse it on a golf holiday.

Marion Brosens 2021-04-24
Played Alvor (for the first time) and Lagos. Alvor really surprised us, what a beautiful course! And the clubhouse terrace is a must go after your round. Beautiful spot and great food. Will play Palmares every time I visit the Algarve.

Wilma Busker 2021-04-23
Palmares beautyfull course. 3 different courses. Every Course is nice.

Elizabeth Tolster 2019-11-23
The course was in excellent condition, and the staff very pleasant and helpful. Had a most enjoyable round of golf. On previous occasions we have found the clubhouse too small and no chance for a post round meal. They are,however, building a new clubhouse and the temporary accommodation is already a great improvement!

Gerard Kelly 2019-10-01
Staff courteous and efficient. Course in excellent condition. Probably need more course rangers to warn slow players. One round took 4.47 which spoils enjoyment of many through poor course etiquette of the few.

Tom Egan 2019-09-29
fantastic golf course the best yet

Paul Selway 2019-09-24
Praia and Alvor stunning course and stunning views

Steve Threader 2019-09-19
Played holes 10 - 27. First 9 was good, the second 9 was better, an interesting links layout. Only disappointment was that there are a few too many short par 4s and the condition was not up to previous levels.

david brooks 2019-09-13
Fantastic course in great condition, will definitely play again. All the staff were great, food was very nice. Played the praia and alvor courses, greens were quite fast and very tricky. Would recommend it to golfers of all levels.

William Townson 2019-08-28
Have just completed 2 day summer special. Played all 27 holes in different combinations. Palmares has something for all and retains a strong challenge with different tees. Greens are true and in good condition for the summer. Bunkers and fairways lovely. Avoid the rough, trees, etc!

William Townson 2019-08-27
It has been 10 years since I last played at Palmares. I wanted to experience the new holes and redesign. Perfect experience, well sign posted, welcome and admin first class. Fun and still a major challenge. Easy to book online and make additions. I have a further 5 courses that I will play through this portal. Thank you

Nils Taawo 2019-08-27
Very nice greens

Colin Carroll 2019-07-16
Tough course in the strong wind. Great views made up for bad golf!

Kerp 2019-07-15
Stunning views on the sea! Impovements of the fairways to be considered desireable.

David Stanbrook 2019-07-15
Very nice course with great views in goodcondition

Jonathon Harbridge 2019-07-11
Very good experience, the checking in was done in a very quick and efficient manner, everything we needed to know was communicated before the round and the course was in fantastic condition

Steve Evans 2019-06-26
Excellent. Great service from nice staff and lovely course

Franco Piergiovanni 2019-06-21
Very nice course. Very tough with the wind. Exhausting…

Trym Anderson 2019-06-18
This was a very nice course little seaside course, with good greens,. Some very short par 4

david salvesen 2019-06-16
Very good

Gareth Toms 2019-06-16
The jewel in the Algarve. All 27 holes fantastic and in great condition

Franco Di Fonzo 2019-06-12
less exciting than in the past. The course is neglected

Nigel Lander 2019-05-06
The first time I have played the new Palmeres course, what a picturesque course overlooking the Laguna on the way out and the sea and Lagos on the way back. A good test with some tricky swinging greens. It’s a course you need to play a couple of times to know when to attack and defend, the par 3’s are very interesting all but 1 over 200 yards . The shorter 160 yarder has a large slop and little lake to defend itself, hardly a give away. A great day out and worth every Euro.

David Dedicoat 2019-05-05
Back for First time for many years. Challenging golf course but the views are spectacular and not yet spoilt by too much development. Greens a bit slow but the contours made putting tricky.

Laurence Potts 2019-05-03
The staff very helpful all around the complex. Food in the clubhouse delicious and the course was beautiful, a real joy to play. We will definitely be back

Conor Claxton 2019-04-30
The staff were very accommodating when we arrived and were happy to switch us to holes 1-18. When the club house is finished it will improve significantly. The golf course was in great shape and is a very tough test of golf. Staff were very friendly and the guy working the refreshment cart was absolutely top notch.

Robert Cannon 2019-04-03
Lovely warm welcome, they were expecting me. Very easy indeed, no need to print out voucher either, which was helpful when travelling , many thanks

Hilary Minto 2019-01-16
We had a good time. They were most obliging and fixed us up to play the part of the course we hadn't played before and the part we enjoyed the most.

Timo Salomaa 2019-01-11
Course was very good to play with nice views to ocean and cities. Very special thanks to for really excelent service. It is good and easy to order teetimes from You. See You next times. Timo

Dr Chris Ashton 2019-01-01
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Arrived early and tee’d off straight away! Lovely views.

Christiane Jacobsen 2018-12-23
Very good course in super condition. Fast well prepared greens, friendly stuff. Marshall system works.

Ian Brotherston 2018-12-04
Professional operation and an excellent golf course in good condition. Not the cheapest and better value for money to be had elsewhere on the Algarve but still recommended

Paul Micks 2018-10-23
This is the first time we have visited Palmares to play golf. We played the Lagos and Praia courses. The Lagos 9 was a little wet in places but both 9's were fantastic. While some in our group did walk the course after the round everyone agreed that a buggy is recommended. Everyone in our group enjoyed the Palmares experience. The food afterward was also excellent.

Steven Redgwell 2018-10-20
What a superb golf course. We played the links 9 (holes 19-27) and 1-9. The links gave us a nice opening 9 before the much more challenging second half. Stunning views, great gold holes and superb condition!!!

Liam Kearney 2018-10-17
We really ejoyed Palmares. I last played there 20 years ago and it has changed quite a bit since then and all to the good. The new clubhouse is on a great site and is very welcoming. We would recommend it to anyone wanting enjoyable golf on the Algarve.

Peter Grant 2018-10-05
Great course in fantastic condition

Phil Sharpe 2018-09-18
Really good test of golf at Palmares, with the course in great condition and greens lightening quick

Stuart Massey 2018-09-18
All went very well...great course surely only going to get better

Elaine Lewis 2018-09-16
Course good. Staff good. Moved us into another 9 because the front 9 was slow. Very helpful.

Peter Clement 2018-08-07
Always love Palmares and excellent value Summer Special.

Per Svensson 2018-07-11
Fantastic as always

Paul Loverseed 2018-07-08
Class best course in the West Algarve

Gareth Toms 2018-06-23
Best course on the Algarve for quality and value

Bill Shallcross 2018-05-30
My partner and I have just had two tremendous days at palmeries golf club and course . The staff have been extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the three courses, difficult to say which was the best,the quality of the greens and general appearance of the courses are a credit to the greens staff. We will definitely be returning to palmaries and highly recommend this little gem of a course in such a delightful,location on the western algarve. Thanks Bill + Jane

cameron mcdougall 2018-04-04
I was quite concerned prior to going to Palmares as it had some very poor reviews regarding staff, slow play and being too busy but I found quite the opposite and loved the course. It has some quite spectacular holes and was in reasonable condition although fairways were very dry. also clubhouse and changing facilities are fairly basic.

Bernd Bachmann 2017-04-16
The golf course Palmares is still one of the most beautiful golf courses in the Algarve. We always enjoyed the great view to the sea and play very gladly the partly quite demanding and varied course. Price and performance just fit together.

westley macey 2016-10-19
The course was great some beautiful holes with great views of alvor,Lagos and the wonderful algarvian coastline in good condition to say how busy it was players need to invest in a pitch mark repairer to help the greens out slight delay waiting for buggies but nothing to take away from the course

Nuno Raposo 2021-04-11
Great course with great service!

Steve Killer 2021-01-25
A nice course by the sea. Praia & Alvor provide different challenges. Lagos 9 was closed for maintenance.

Fabre 2021-01-25
Really bad...because some women members ( probably from Norh of Europe) who don't respect any rules of etiquette.They are ''at home'' ( but they don't speak Portugues) and don't respect other players. I will not come back to this course....because this kind of members.

Palmares was not an unknown like Boavista and therefore was eagerly anticipated, however, thanks to an overnight flight delay, we could not make our start time on the first full day of our holiday. Between Palmares golf and Tee times an arrangement was reached which enabled us to reschedule the round to the last day of our holiday and we are extremely grateful for this to both parties. I have already sent a message to Palmares thanking them for their efficiency, help and generosity and will definitely play their again when next in the area. It remains in my top ten all time favourite venues in the world and should receive much more publicity than it actually gets

Graham Lucas 2020-03-04
Very interesting variety of holes, in very good condition.

Andrew Strange 2020-03-02
Really efficient and very reasonable pricing :-)

Tom Conaty 2020-03-02
We love this course because of the views but some of the lower (Praia ) holes are a bit dated ( eg 21 ) and repetitive (24 & 25 ) . The ''strokesaver '' course guide is a waste of money (compared to the O'Conner guide for instance). The course martial needs a course of his own : in manners.

Ewen MacInnes 2020-02-25
Is there a handicap limit here? If not there should be.....

Ewen MacInnes 2020-02-25
Quiet, quick round in perfect conditions

Hugh Gowrie 2020-02-15
A most enjoyable days golf. Temporary clubhouse arrangements not great and refreshments overpriced.

Steve Bassi 2020-01-27
Always good, friendly helpful staff, buggies a bit on the tired side.

Roland Nilsson 2020-01-22
Club house, restaurant puttinggreen are temporary facilities

Agne 2019-12-22
Unfortunately the links like holes (19-27) were closed due to renovation and the holes 10-18 most likely just reopened. Greens were slow and not very true, tee boxes overseers and newly sanded. Design is well fitted into the landscape and the views are spectacular. Pace of play was very good for a vacation course... 3 1/2 hrs.

David Dunlop 2019-12-21
Great, loved playing this course. Clubhouse disappointing though I know they are working at a new one.

Michael Montgomery 2019-12-18
Easy to book and very helpful

Martin Georg Hilke 2019-12-14
We played the the Course 1-18 the second Time. Pretty good golfing, great landscape and friendly staff!

Max de Groot 2019-11-22
Outstanding course with superb panorama. Greens are not soft enough for high irons approach shots

Bill Robertson 2019-11-21
Beautiful and always in good nick

George Drummond 2019-11-18
Best course in the region, never tire of playing it.

Haak 2019-11-13
Too long waiting times on every tee due to 6 minutes between 4 ball flights

Max de Groot 2019-11-06
Great golf course. Enjoyed our round of golf as always. Poor club house facility since building a New one is currently under way

Catriona Thomas 2019-11-01
This is my favourite course in the Algarve. Beautifully landscaped and several good holes.

Philip Summers 2019-10-18
Really enjoyed the day. Will definitely be back. When the club house is finished it should be even better.

Lindsay Desmier 2019-10-16
Palmares is a fantastic course but be prepared for a very slow round. There are 27 holes and there is quite a distance between a lot of the tees. A lot of people walk this course adding 30 - 60 minutes to the round. Our round was 5 hours 20 mins (for the 2nd time here) and we waited on every shot. It is one of the best courses over on that side of the Algarve but unfortunately going to cross this one off the list.

Liam Kearney 2019-10-15
Palmares was in very good condition. Was enjoyed by all

james Mayhew 2019-10-14
good course - however too many tee offs booked in made it a very slow - 5+ hour round

james Mayhew 2019-10-14
great course, long and challenging... a bit expensive

Ewen MacInnes 2019-10-14

William Shallcross 2019-10-10
Having played Palmares last year on the same basis. Our experience this week was again most enjoyable,the staff extremely helpful. The two couples we played with good company ,and of course the the golf course in great condition. Will be back . Thanks

Jan Vermeesch 2019-10-10
A lot of variety thanks to the 3x 9 holes course with spectacular views across Lagos, Alvor and the beaches.

Ted Kennedy 2019-10-09
This course is one of the best and most challenging courses we played. The course was in very good condition. Greens were fast but fair. Staff were very friendly and helpful and they had plenty of buggies for everyone. Definitely return again

H. Spickermann 2019-10-05
Insgesamt alles gut, habe mit 3 Spielern aus den Niederlanden gespielt, keine Probleme. Allerdings war der Course gut gebucht und alles war eigentlich gut, leider hat der Buggy frühzeitig aufgegeben. Insgesamt war alles zu langsam (18 holes, 5 and a half hours half hours, that is no good). Leider hat unser buggy zu Beginn des letzten Lochsausserdem 'den Geist aufgegeben', so hat insgesamt alles zu lange gedauert. Best regards, H. Spickermann

Dorte Lægteskov 2019-10-04
After 13 holes we had played for 4 hours and then we stopped. Too many players om the Course

joe glackin 2019-10-01
A very nice course but like all Portugese courses let down by no marshalls, too busy and slow play. 5 1/2 hours in a buggy is crazy, and not enjoyable.

Paul Selway 2019-09-19
Stunning setting course in great condition

Thomas Diggle 2019-09-18
Very windy, super challenging, immense views. But most of all, soooo pure.

Mary Rayment 2019-09-17
Clubhouse staff and Chief Marshall very welcoming and helpful. Course generally in good condition, though there were tufts of grass on some fairways. Greens a bit slow but ball rolled well. Recommend the Alvor 9 as most interesting and with some great views.

Cliff Mottershead 2019-09-17
Good welcome at course but didn’t open until 07:15 so little time to warm up for 07:38 tee off following check in. Ground staff around course very courteous.

Andy Jones 2019-09-16
Facilities very much a work in progress but course excellent value for money. The original 9 holes in the mountains were my favourite with some superb views and a couple of stunning holes. The other 18 holes are links, providing a good contrast to original 9 although did not think these holes were of same quality overall.

Ulrike Rietzler 2019-09-15
Nice golf course with perfect views to the ocean

Ian Beattie 2019-09-12
Average meet & greet on arrival, course was great, we would have preferred to play 1-9 and 10 -18, but not available, would return in 2020 but would need to guarantee playing 1-18, good service in bar after golf, beer a bit expensive, good introduction by starter at Palmares

Larry Byrne 2019-09-11
Very good course in excellent condition

Bob-Jan Dietrich 2019-09-11
Very friendly employees (reception, buggy service and marshall)! We had a great time!

Bob-Jan Dietrich 2019-09-02
Good quality course!

Kuhrmeyer Jens-Uwe 2019-09-01
Very nice Golf Course with fast Greens

Brendan Mason 2019-08-19
Poor standard of course considering the premium price paid. Greens are nowhere near the standard of Salgados

ROBERT Dominique 2019-07-31
Très mauvais accueil ! Départ du 19 au 27 puis 1 au 9 ??? Pas un mot à notre départ non plus, un minimum aurait été apprécié.

Keith Walker 2019-07-31
Best course on the Algarve

Keith Walker 2019-07-31
Great course in excellent condition.

Lawrence Hughes 2019-07-30
It was great

Stephen Newman 2019-07-27
From start to finish my experience was excellent. Particularly impressed with the starter who made sure we all listened to his words of wisdom. Well done. The house was great and pace of play acceptable. A realt great experience after a 25 year gap. The new layout is challenging and the fairways & greens top notch.

Howard Dawson 2019-07-05
A well maintained testing and interesting layout with fast true greens and superb views over the Mediterranean. We walked the course and found the signage to the next tee a little difficult to follow at times.

David Gee 2019-07-03

Christine Wehrle 2019-06-29
Very beautiful course, friendly people

Dale Thorpe 2019-06-29
Excellent course with some spectacular views. We played holes 1 to 18 - Alvor and Lagos courses. The Praia course is all links and quite flat whereas the two 9 hole courses we played were more undulating. We completed our 4ball round in just under 4 hrs 30 mins on a very hot day with no hold ups or pressure from behind. Friendly course Marshalls and staff. Buggy drinks and snack service. Clubhouse and pro shop are small but functional. The most expensive of the 3 courses we played - Santo Antonio and Boavista also played- but well worth a visit.

Robin Fledderus 2019-06-24
Well maintained golfcourse with lovely views

Brian Miller 2019-06-21
Enjoyable course with great views. Temporary clubhouse is very limited and the extent of construction work is now disturbing the course in places. I may not choose to play at Palmares again until the redevelopment work is complete.

Nick Fry 2019-06-18
Course in great condition. Greens good. Much better than Morgado yesterday

John Fogarty 2019-06-05
Very easy to book game and we really enjoyed it

Maurice O'Keeffe 2019-05-22
Great course and everything went smoothly

Bill Robertson 2019-05-21
Always a pleasure to play.Friendliest staff....especially the the Algarve

Craig Frame? 2019-05-21
Very good golf course, excellent condition, fee included buggies - would have been a tough walk

Peter Godfrey 2019-05-20
Lovely course , shame about the building work , bit hilly, some lovely holes near sea

Peter Clement 2019-05-11
As always Palmares provides a very enjoyable holiday experience. A little slow but with the views and weather no real problem.

Stuart Deane 2019-05-09
The course was great but the pace of play was appallingly slow, taking g over 4 3/4 hours for a two ball with a buggy. Spoiled what would otherwise have been a great day. The club needs to be far stronger on managing slow play and insist on all player having a buggy ( or none).

Michael Reed 2019-05-05
Fantastic course

Julian Pallister 2019-05-01

Olaf Wilsdorf 2019-04-28
We played Alvor and Praia. Nice and tricky. Fast greens. Nearly every bunker is ground under repair. To much construction ???? around and on the course including the clubhouse. In a few years hopefully it will get nicer

Segers eric 2019-04-24
All ay? nice vieuws, süper greens

Michael Mullins 2019-04-23
Good course. Wil play it again. Great views.

markus hoffmann 2019-04-23
a lovely course, in spite of provisional clubhouse and bad weather very polite and helpful staff.

Vermeire Patrick 2019-04-21
Nice course, a bit too crowdy with slow players

Odette 2019-04-21
Condition of course okay - unfortunately we couldn’t play Alvor. However the never ending construction works are not the best “reception “... let’s hope there will be a new clubhouse/pro shop/ restaurant soon.

Brian Filler 2019-04-20
The golf course was in very good condition with some long tough par 3s Some very picturesque holes and well worth the visit.

Kelvin Fitton 2019-04-19
This course could easily be among the very best in the Algarve if it was well manicured - great set up and scenery.

Graham Poole 2019-04-19
Great course. Great views.

Charles Coe 2019-04-07

Rudemann 2019-04-05
Freundliches Personal, schöner Platz, E-Cart mit Macken

Dave Matkin 2019-04-05
It was a 4/1/2 round...the marshalls should have asked twice the group in front to let us through but they chose not to. We were waiting on about 14 holes on the tee for some very novice players

Liebing-Gudrun Loehr 2019-04-02
hard to walk

Nick Fry 2019-03-25
Great course just a bit over booked so round was a bit slow.

dirk groeneweg 2019-03-25
also a new type of outlay but a honest course

alexmcghee 2019-03-21
Too much work on course and surrounding area to have a great experience.

Graham Lucas 2019-03-19
Many lovely holes, some work ongoing interferes a little, but will make it better.

Bob Guard 2019-03-19
Excellent Course and superb service from the staff. One of the best on the Algarve.

Allan Davies 2019-03-19
Great course in good condition - really enjoyable

Trevor Swift 2019-03-03
Fantastic course in great condition

Clive Taylor 2019-02-23
Difficult course. will be better when construction work is complete

Cathy Cirko 2019-02-19
Greens very good condition and tough

Roland Nilsson 2019-02-08
Very good course but slow play and looker room not up to standard

John Ryan 2019-02-05
Generally excellent. Some fairways are very bare and need improvement.

Max Cornish 2019-02-05
Beautiful course. Lovely setting. Good challenge

Kevin Freeman 2019-01-29
GReat golf course!

Sandra Muit 2019-01-26
We have played the 9 hole courses Alvor and Praia. Both are very beautiful. Praia has its own charm going along the sea and Alvor has very nice views. The maintenance of the course is very good. Absolut recommendation to play again.

LHEUREUX 2019-01-22
C'est un parcours que nous connaissons bien et où nous avons un réel plaisir à jouer. Toutefois aujourd'hui, nous avons été programmé juste après une compétition derrière laquelle nous avons beaucoup attendu (avec un fort vent froid !). Greens impeccables mais fairways sans herbe !

Steve Bassi 2019-01-21
We play here every year, but overall we were disappointed this time. There was a competition on so the front 9 was closed, we played the back 9 and the links 9. The greens on the back 9 were terrible, but the links was in very good condition. However, our rounds were interrupted by several players who were practicing for the competition just jumping in ahead of us on the links 9, they had been told the course was clear, bad organisation

Hilary Minto 2019-01-12
A well maintained and friendly course with stunning views as well.

Timo Salomaa 2019-01-08
Course layout is good. So many different fairways. It is really fun to play it. Green were perfect condition.

Mr Heuzeroth 2019-01-04
One of the best courses at the Algarve. Always in a great shape.

Michael Montgomery 2018-12-19
Very good

Tim Cartwright 2018-12-08
A wonderful golf course in beautiful surroundings but the greens are just too difficult for us. We wish we could have played on the links 9 during our trip.

Richard Martin 2018-12-06
Very impressive course. Although not easy. Greens very fast mako g putting a bit of a lottery. Poor club house though.

Max De Groot 2018-11-29
super course with spectacular views

Mikko Raunio 2018-11-07
Fantastic course. I played links (19-27) and then first nine - perfect combination. On links nine, a stroke saver would be good idea.

Andrew Collings 2018-11-07
We enjoyed playing the golf course, however, it was very busy and we only just had enough light to play our round. Poor administration and service at the Golf Club, problem with buggy allocation. The person that dealt with us was very very rude and was quite aggressive.

ROGER HERRING 2018-11-05
Course shabby, not enough time between groups of players. Hospitality very good.

Bill Robertson 2018-11-04
Always a pleasure to play this beautiful course. Helpful and friendly staff

Great golf course . Beautiful views.

Derek Hughes 2018-10-30
Slow going and course in reasonable condition

Jim Houlihan 2018-10-23
Very good the front nine we played was very enjoyable and genuine links. The second nine was completely different and more hilly. Only complaint is the course was difficult to find and could do with more road signs.

Adrian Brooks 2018-10-22
Golf course was in its usual superb condition. Very busy but Daniel the on course marshal was excellent in keeping people moving

Gregory Parker 2018-10-21
Was glad my day could be changed Played with three other nice guys Bunkers not so good

carlos verhelst 2018-10-17
Well maintained course. Good and friendly organisation. Clubhouse can use a renovation.

Steve Defty 2018-10-15
Excellent course spoilt by inconsiderate slow players, particularly on the Sunday when a 2 and 3 ball caused a massive tailback.. The marshalls should have stepped in and either made them speed up or leave the course. We teed off at 14:02 and could not complete the course before it got dark due to those idiots. The previous 2 games were completed under 4 hours, the last game we gave up on with 5 holes to go as it was 18:45 and the game was just plain painful! #nothappy

Pieter Colijn 2018-10-10
Top course. Excellent tee's greens and fairways

Etienne Bucher 2018-10-09
all perfect

Ian McMeeking 2018-10-08
I didn't think the course was in as good condition as I remembered from 15 years ago. We played Priaia and Alvor. There are now 27 holes we wondered if we were offered the best 18 to play because we were on a TeeTimes deal? However the deal went very smoothly and the staff were good.

Rick Hewland 2018-10-05
We all enjoyed the course and facilities

Peter Clement 2018-10-04
Love the course. Bunkers a little inconsistent but a joy to play.

Jim Hardman 2018-10-03
As usual a very stiff test course in great condition,

glenn weston 2018-09-16
holes 1 to 18 are great but holes 19 to 27 were not as good .

patrick Barthel 2018-09-03
Very nice campo

Hannes Herzum 2018-08-21
Wonderful spot

Iain Marshall 2018-08-18
Fantastic course, the best we played. Re- booked tee time after we got the day wrong. Thank you Palmares GC and Teetimes..

Steve Thorpe 2018-07-19
Great course wi viewsth fantastic

Carlos Ferreira 2018-07-11
We had a fantastic day. Palmares offers great variety of holes all with fantastic views. Greens fast and sloppy. Can play this golf course tomorrow again.

Michael Coyle 2018-07-10
Once again service at the club house was deplorable.The access roads to the golf course were in very bad condition, and was no signs to guide you to the golf course.

Henk Westland 2018-07-07
Perfect place

Keith Walker 2018-07-04
Great golf course in good condition, staff very friendly.

Tuilier 2018-06-26
Very well

Curtis O'Reilly 2018-06-06
The course has many great views and we paid a summer rate with cart of approximately 70 Euros which made it a reasonable price. The 9 holes along the ocean is a great opportunity to try some links golf

Neil Meffin 2018-05-19
Good course but wind played havoc with game

Jesper Schou 2018-05-14
We had to wait for an hour to get our buggies and actually ended up playing with one less buggy than desired in order to avoid waiting even longer. Very windy day, which makes it a tough course and in some cases the walk from one hole to another is too long.

Jesper Schou 2018-05-14
All in all a good experience on a relatively calm day with good service. The course is a bit dry and the holes 6-8 on the Praia loop are not up to the standard of the rest of the holes, but otherwise a fine course.

Very beautiful course. But it’s not 1 pax/ 1 buggy ... it’s 2 pax/ 1 buggy IF available... it’s not the same. So we were lucky to have one buggy for 2 players.

Cuny Philippe 2018-05-04

Gilles Blier 2018-05-01
Superb course.

Fran Mackey 2018-04-25
We love this course and it gets better every year we return

Stewart Binnie-McKenzie 2018-04-25
Great course but bunkers hard panned but prob because of rain the night before other than that perfect

Mr N Suffolk 2018-04-24
Enjoyed the course, although it was a 5 hour round... too many ''not good enough'' golfers on course.

colin armitage 2018-04-15
I like it as a golf course, the beach 9 is just lovely, but they continue to try and get too many groups on. 8 minutes between start times is just not enough. its so slow, over 4.5 hrs for the fourballs. Just adjusting to 9 would make all the difference to the experience. I am sure golfers dont return because of it but heh! maybe they dont care as there are always lots of golfers anyways. I have rated the experience only a 7 because the club house and approach areas are now looking tired. They are trying to promote a five star resort type experience but it is tatty.

Andreas Proske 2018-04-15
Thank you for the great service and quick communication!

Tania Segers 2018-04-01
Very diverse golf course with ample possibilities due to the 3x 9 hole combinations possible.

Gary Watts 2018-03-30
Beautiful golf course thoroughly enjoyed a great mix holes long short makeable and impossible, still my favorite in the Algarve Lovely staff great facilities.

Elizabeth Tolster 2018-03-29
A great round of golf. The restaurant/bar was very limited, but the staff were very friendly.

Mark Wincer 2018-03-28
Very pleasant experiencep

Michael McKenna 2018-03-26
The Course was tremendous not a bad hole on it. The only problem was the inclement weather. But throughly enjoyed the day's outing. Was by far the best course played.

Bernd Bachmann 2018-03-25
The great view from the Club house or even from tea 19 to Lagos, to the coast and the wonderfully landscaped golf course we always find very impressive. But also the varied and well-maintained golf course makes us always happy to come to one of the most beautiful golf courses in the Algarve.

Göran Walle 2018-03-23
One of the best golfcourses in Algarve.

Diane McNally 2018-03-16
Enjoyed the course, very slow on the back nine.

Gert Jacobs 2018-03-04
I knew the course before and after it has been reconstructed and enlarged to 27 holes. Last time in 2012. I had great expectation because of a good design and spectacular views of the course. Afterwards I was somewhat disappointed. The fareways were extremely hard almost with no grass. The areas outside fareways and greens were left as they were years ago - very scruffy. Greens very fast and in good condition. Clubhouse small and not very attractive. Toilets in clubhouse unacceptable. The old ones are ok. Service needs to be improved: It took us more than half an hour to clear up things about the vouchers you sent them. In the end I sent them the email with the vouchers I received from you. At first I had to connect my iphone with their Wifi which proved difficult because of the poor signal. In consequence we had no practice time left for the driving ranch.

David Lewis 2018-03-03
Superb setting. Excellent condition

Ekkehard Behnke 2018-02-18
great located course!

Lee Dunn 2018-02-08
Very enyojable with SAN Carlos golf society, course in great condition

Max Cornish 2018-02-04
Course was excellent. Very interesting layout with spectacular views.

Robert Lentell 2018-02-02
Everything worked OK with winter package booking. However some of the holes in sand dunes looking tired and need some work on them.

Henk Eilander 2018-02-02
The service from TEETIMES is great

Kevin Freeman 2018-02-01
Great golf course!

tony Laframboise 2018-01-27
This a great course if you play 1 through 18. The Praia nine is a bit hocky but nice views. The front nine is the best part of the course but seldom do they allow guests to play this nine. Staff were great. We were lucky today and started on 10 and got on the front nine to finish thanks to a tip from the starter.

LHEUREUX 2018-01-22
Accueil et parcours parfaits mais pour le joueur, c’est une autre histoire ! Grand soleil et donc une journée magnifique.

Roberta alder 2018-01-18
Beautiful course, fantastic views of the sea. Great big greens and wide fairways. To bad the staff isn’t friendly. Would definitely play again.

Colin Papworth 2018-01-15
As usual, excellent. 8 instead of a 10 given the winter maintenance programme.

Steve Bassi 2018-01-15
A great course as always, will always go back

Colin Papworth 2018-01-13
Excellent course, really enjoyed playing here again even though winter maintenance meant that the greens were slower than normal.

Jan Pedersen 2017-11-22
Nice course.

Bill Robertson 2017-11-13
Excellent as always..a pleasure to play there and helpful, friendly staff.

Christopher Hunt 2017-11-11
Really enjoyed the course and although it was very busy there weren't too many hold-ups. A little expensive but a good golf course.

Thijs Beetstra 2017-11-07
Palmares is a lovely golf course which should be included in anybody’s golf schedule when visiting the Western Algarve. An automatic golf trolley is recommended.

Christopher Hunt 2017-11-06
Lovely course. Just a pity it is so busy but still enjoyed the day.

Jan Pedersen 2017-10-31

Bill McDonald 2017-10-28
Fantastic golf course club house is poor golf reception to small needs more marshals to avoid slow play 5 hours plus not good

Marc Luthi 2017-10-26
Course is very challenging and well kept. Service could be a bit more friendlier especially at the buggy pickup. No hot water in showers, never experienced before in a golf club house!!!! General service gives an impression of amateurisme. best regards, marc

Bill McDonald 2017-10-20
Reception area very small we felt we were not listen to unable to get are complaint across felt like we didn't matter a fantastic course we all loved it but i will not be playing this course again to much slow play we seen no marshals to speed things up

Mark Barnish 2017-10-20
Again clearly overbooked, teed off 20 minutes late, huge waiting at each tee and with 1:45 tee time not able to finish the 18 holes before dark!

Peter Clement 2017-10-14
Excellent layout but bunkers need more sand.

Michael Davies 2017-10-14
Poor clubhouse operation

Eddie clark 2017-10-13
Great course. Good service. Only problem only 1 buggy available

Daniel Kirwan 2017-10-13

Good mix of links and parkland holes in different 9s

Mr Ian Littlejohn 2017-10-02
This is a fantastic course - we played the Praia + Alvor 18 - thoroughly enjoyable. Two different types of golf on each 9, with the standout being the links golf of Praia. The course is in superb condition, and should be recommended to any party travelling to the Portimao region

Denise Earley 2017-09-30

Always a favourite. Great combinations.

JIM CLARKE 2017-06-21
I found both courses excellent, Palmares 7/10

Rory White 2017-06-19
Very disappointing as we were looking forward to playing Palmares again. Asked to pay the 18 parkland holes but had to settle for 9 Lagos & 9 links which we didn't enjoy. The 9 Alvor holes are the best this place has to offer, the other 18 are not worth the high green fees in our opinion.

Chris Brindle 2017-06-18
Nice course, I think the Championship course (1-18 Alvor/Lagos) probably best to play, the Praia course was slightly disappointing. Friendly staff, reasonable food and drink.

Robert Cannon 2017-05-30
stunning position and course layout

Stephen Green 2017-05-16
Lovely views and some tiugh holes

Jaap Slootweg 2017-05-05
Really nice!

Jeff Bull 2017-04-18
Slow greens but apart from that, very enjoyable and interesting course. Unfortunately the ''clubhouse'' isn't fit for purpose, just awful.

Heather Ward 2017-04-12
Had a really great day on a beautiful course with wonderful friendship, love the company Tee times provide both on and off the golf course ????

Graham Lucas 2017-03-31
Loved the old course, and still love all the new 27 holes, albeit it's now more expensive; some long green to tee steep walks, so buggies desirable for less agile folk

Alan Seery 2017-03-27
Google maps which we used for sat nav is giving the incorrect directions to Palmares course. Enjoyed playing the course. Some of the links holes could be better defined, e.g. it is difficult to figure out where the green is on the second par 5 for second shot and the same applies some of the par fours. A rock or some other mark in the fairway would be useful. The stroke saver is of little use, it does not give any ''pro'' tips for first time visitors.

Fran Mackey 2017-03-10
We have played here before and again the course was in excellent condition and everyone found it a great challange

Howard L Verrill 2017-02-28
I would never walk this course again. It is a great challenge and the greens were great but too hilly to walk for me. Bunkers needed some work.

Paul 2017-02-05
What a super course, certainly in my own all time top five courses to play, wonderful use of the local topography, have to note however that the locker rooms were very poor, akin to a UK municipal course, bar staff were very good, but the bar is tired and dated.

Axel Heuser 2017-01-04
You must have a good condition, if you play this course by walking. The course is very interesting. Nice views over the Alvor estuary.

simon walkley 2016-11-30
Always our favourite course but we are upset at the development which we think is very unsympathetic to the area

Michael Fahy 2016-11-21
Excellent. Staff on arrival welcoming and very helpful. Course in excellent condition and pace of play was very good as they obviously don't overcrowd it like Boa. Lunch was very enjoyable and staff very friendly. Will definitely recommend it to others and l look forward to playing it again.

Bienz Peter 2016-11-19
many people but beautiful course

Susan Crawford 2016-11-13
Very disappointed in this course this year. Had to play the links holes unexpectedly and they are very scruffy. In fact the whole course was in poor condition and very obviously over played. Very slow round, which gave us time to notice how unkept and scruffy it had become. The owners need to spend some money on the upkeep. This went from being our favourite course to thinking we won't go back next year.

Adrian Fraser Jones 2016-10-24
Great views and cracking course

Oliver White 2016-10-24

Stuart Watson 2016-10-21
A very good three by 9 hole course with some challenging holes, especially enjoyed the sea course, friendly & helpful staff.

Bill Robertson 2016-10-20
Glorious views...maturing nicely

Kelvin Lawton 2016-10-09
Too busy, even when teeing off at 8am. Despite the excellent course would think twice about playing there again.

Richard hartley 2016-10-04
Excellent course, well kept, very enjoyable.

Richard Hannam 2016-10-03
Nice contrast to the VDL/QDL courses being more of a links feel. Greens excellent. Need to sort drinks buggy service.

Denis Earley 2016-10-02
Best Course that I have ever played.

Andy Bryant 2016-09-26
Stunning course, very enjoyable

Andrew Ford 2016-09-23
1st time playing the course. apart from early morning sun causing havoc and not knowing the course but will definitely be back.

Ann Walker 2016-09-19
Stunning views looking out to sea

Daniel Kirwan 2016-09-16
Palmares is a fantastic course. It has everything to test all skills. Our favourite.

Irene Lee Donohoe 2016-08-27
Our favourite course - a view so beautiful! Again a buggy is needed for the older golfers.

Julia Bell 2016-08-13
Wonderful - but rather busy

Franco Di Fonzo 2016-07-06
Third time in Palmares but not satisfied. Fairway and greens non at the same level of last year.

Celio Carreto 2016-07-06
I hate the beach section. Not my favorite.

Peter Hurley 2016-06-28
great experience friendly and helpful staff a lovely course.

Jeff 2016-06-23
Again very busy but no matter which two nines you play a challenge to say the least.

Stephen Curley 2016-06-19
They changed our tee time on arrival by 30 minutes and we were placed behind a large group. Round took 5.5 hours to complete. Although a very picturesque golf course, condition was only average.

James Galbraith 2016-06-17

Klaus Grossmann 2016-06-06
Course was not in best shape (water?). Fairways far to dry and gard.

Philip Halpenny 2016-06-01
A hidden gem, the most popular course (Lagos/Praia) among our group. Like all courses, but especially here. clubhouse staff need to be much more professional

john michael o'neill 2016-05-19
simply superb

Dave Thompson 2016-05-16
This course is our most popular and the course and greens were in very good condition.

Paul Tweedle 2016-05-13
Very entertaining course.

Julian Pallister 2016-05-06
Uncrowded. Lovely views. Tricky greens

Peter Watson 2016-05-05
Played and enjoyed two rounds over the three ''nines'', all of which presented different challenges. Would definitely return.

execllent course

Lindsay Desmier 2016-04-19
Favourite course over this side of the Algarve, and value wise the best in the Algarve. Spectacular seaside course (27 holes). There are other great courses obviously but none at the price. Played just after a PGA event - superfast greens

Dave Pennington 2016-03-21
The condition of the surrounds to the greens was very poor. Newly laid turf and lots of sand made approach shots very difficult. There was a message on the score card explaining the condition but there was no offer of any discount. We were very disappointed to be charged the full green fee when it was clear that the greens surrounds were not in good condition and certainly not up to the standard expected.

Rene Olthof 2016-03-17
clubhouse is nothing worth mentioning. Courses are fine and difficult when you play it the first time. Need to be more cautious.

David Heasman 2016-03-10

Our favourite course on the Algarve. Good test of golf with spectacular views.

Alastair McLean 2016-03-05
The member's competition had not completed their first 9 holes before our start time however the starter let us go so we were sandwiched between 2 competition games for our first 9 holes (one of our playing days). Pity about the weather on during our 3rd game but we did manage 15 holes.

William Slattery 2016-02-08
Delayed start due to overrunning competition but started explained situation clearly so was ok. Condition of golf course and pace of play was very good. A truly enjoyable experience to be repeated

mr stephen banks 2016-01-21
course in excellent condition, however we didn't feel appreciated, didn't get value for money

Timo Taipalus 2016-01-21
Good o

Ari Niiniviita 2016-01-11
Very nice course, friendly service with caddy master

Stewart-Binnie Mackenzie 2016-01-11
great course but all non golf items ie food and drink very expensive

Susan crawford 2015-11-08
A great golf course especially if playing the first 18. We come from a links course in Northern Ireland so did not want to play the links type holes near the beach.

Lindsay Desmier 2015-10-27
Beautiful course - all 27 holes. This time Played 10-18 and last 9 links holes by the beach. Would recommend thoroughly

ruby Langhart 2015-10-26
Beautiful course on the beach. the most natural course.

Timo Taipalus 2015-10-24

dave cooksey 2015-10-23
Very good course shame about the buggies being late for last group.

Julian Pallister 2015-10-21

Colin Papworth 2015-10-17
Excellent course, requires a course Marshall to deal with poor etiquette and slow play.

Clive Davies 2011-11-29
Played within a Society on a sunny Friday morning and 1st visit to Palmares for 6 years and what a difference in the course. Some excellent views and the layout of the new course can be very challenging even for the low handicappers. You could not fault the condition of the greens and the pace of them was lightning. The work that has gone in to transform the course for me has been money well spent and hopefully the quality will continue. The only downside is the pricing of the coffee pre golf of 3 euros, lets not be greedy but package properly and we will travel on a regular basis from Vilamoura to play such a quality course. Clive Davies (handicap 13)

Chez Carlos Golf Society 2011-11-25
This was another visit to Palmares this year for the complete 27 holes for a return match between the Society and Rod Yates’ Lagos team. Strong turnout with x32 players enabled us to fix eight football matches with the chance to win one point for your team on each of the nine holes – full handicap stableford. This way your pairing were virtually always in the game. Early start this time at 09.00 so as to ensure we all got round. Thanks again to Rod for arranging the ‘picnic’ of food which was enjoyed out on the course. We couldn’t have asked for better weather for the time of year – blue skies and sunny with no wind made for truly magnificent playing conditions. We were all clear by 4.30pm to re-assemble at a local beach bar on Meia Praia for the some well deserved liquid refreshment. A delightful meal of piri-piri chicken, grilled fish & salad rounded the day of perfectly. Shame the result was not better for us!

Manuel Quinta 2011-09-08
Os meus agradecimentos a toda a equipa de Palmares que esteve de forma muito profissional em todos os momentos da prova. A opinião dos membros foi clara. Adoraram o campo, que se apresentou em condições fenomenais, com vistas que dispensam quaisquer comentários e adoraram o serviço prestado pela vossa equipa, que esteve irrepreensível, incluindo o almoço e todos os detalhes inerentes à organização. Os meus parabéns. Manuel Quinta

Charles Coker 2011-09-08
Hi Palmares Played new holes on beach for first time Really good and greens spectacular !! The other holes are all coming on and maturing well too with them looking more and more natural every visit Now you have the correct order with the full 27 holes the balance is great and it all blends together - really impressed Well done! Charles

Joes Charlton 2011-03-11
I played Palmares about 20 years ago so was a little apprehensive when I heard they'd redesigned it but am pleased to say the changes are excellent and this is going to be one of the best in the Algarve. We played in February and were really pleased by the condition of the course (very quick pure greens). The front nine is nearly 4000 yards off the tips so a real test but the back nine is a little easier with some short par 4's and reachable par 5's. Well worth visiting if you are in the Algarve, is up there with the best in my opinion.

Ian Sipson 2010-11-18
i have just played the course on saturday and i would not recommend it to anyone. whilst the front nine are good, the back 9 are like playing on a building site. very disappointing.

Kira Kalinowski 2010-10-17
PLease, i would to know, in which month/year you will open the new Palmares? with regards k.Kalinowski

birgit meyer 2010-09-24
