Silves Golf Course

Silves Golf Course is anything but the proverbial walk in the park. Target golf reigns supreme. A drive at the opening hole has to flirt with two water hazards on both flanks. A heroic and straight shot will reward the player with an easy uphill approach shot.|Silves encourages and rewards attacking play. It has a natural beauty and an elegant design. The excellent condition, all year round, is ideal for low scoring. A relentless test in precision, this course has no peers. 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. The severity of the bunkering is enough defence against the onslaught of the games big guns.

Silves Golf Course - latest comments and reviews

Philippe Pineau 2021-12-16
Silves is a very nice course, enjoyable by any golfer’s level. Greens are excellent, the whole course in very good condition. Nice club house. Good buggies. Parking should be extended. Putting green to be improved. Need chipping green near the club house. A driving range would be nice.

Mark Boon 2021-12-06
A warm welcome and helpful staff. We were one of the last groups to play in the day and play was slow it need marshalling as high handicap golfers were waiting far too long to take shots they would not be able to make. The greens were quick and receptive and it was a good test for a shortish but tight golf course.

Hervé Maillard 2021-11-16

Ronald Lee 2021-11-04
not in good condition

John Rice 2021-10-28
Great game of golf, friendly staff at reception and buggy organised , even tee off time was early, had a light lunch enjoyable bar and restaurant, course enjoyable with plenty of challenges

Conor O'Brien 2021-10-25
Lovely new Clubhouse, friendly & efficient staff, course and greens in very good condition. Good pace of play. Really enjoyed the day

Henk Van Derlit 2021-10-18
It was a real pleasure after to Corona years to play one of our favourite courses Silvis, together with the new clubhouse a real trekt.

Andrew Head 2021-10-12
Excellent no issues at all

Ralph Bosworth 2021-10-11
Silves was a more relaxed golfing experience. Reception good. Buggy arranged with no problem. Round was slow but manageable. We finished before dark a result.

Tony Suwalski 2021-10-09
The course was in great condition but play was very slow

Conor kavanagh 2021-10-08
Lovely course nice staff Pity about the smoke covering parts of the course

John Rowcroft 2021-10-07
Got to say the new layout and club house are brilliant. The condition of the course was more than acceptable, great condition and an enjoyable experience.

Frank,Huss 2021-09-25
We didn‘t have the best experience, pace was too slow, 4 hours 35 minutes for 18 holes is too much. No marshal, a flight of 3 in front of us with 1 (!) golf bag only. The course especially the greens were in a bad shape.
Tee Times reply: Dear Mr Frank, Thanks for your feedback. In high season a round of golf takes between 4 hours to 4: 45. 3 Players and 1 golf bag are not permitted on the golf courses, and we should report that to the Adm.

Eamonn Ryan 2021-09-06
Great to experience the new facilities. Greens a bit bumpy!

Kevin Burke 2021-09-04
Your staff are very friendly and efficient. However some of the teeboxes need attention and many of the greens are infested with small mushrooms and patchy grass e.g. the Index 1 7th. If the greenkeeper in my local club here in Dublin presented the greens in this manner he would be in danger of being sacked. You are running the Pestana Golf Festival at the end of this month and I would anticipate that you will get many complaints because of the state of the greens. We love playing the Pestana courses but you will need to improve the quality of the greens to get back to the way they were.

Roland Heal 2021-08-23
Second round here on this holiday and great conditions although the greens had been spiked so didn’t round true, fast pace and friendly staff at check in and the Bar. Great golf club

Roland Heal 2021-08-11
A nice course with friendly staff let down slow play and some of the greens needing attention, would benefit having a drinks cart and a Marshall.

Adrian Fraser Jones 2021-07-09
First time back after the change to course and the new clubhouse. Very impressed with all the changes. The changing of the 1 st hole to the 18th has really worked well. Th course was in very good condition

Nick Medlam 2021-06-22
Course in excellent condition. Reception and other staff very helpful.

Hans Spliethoff 2021-05-31
Excellent ... good course, well maintained

Mark Hutch 2021-05-10
First time playing and felt it was good for improving my golf by creating space to hit the ball and not try to steer it

Stefan Kos 2021-05-09
Ein sehr schöner Platz, toll gespäht und durch seine hügelige Landschaft sehr abwechslungsreich.

Philippe Pineau 2021-05-05
Silves is a nice course, offering an enjoyable round to all golfing levels. Overall good condition early May 2021: Tee boxes, fairways, bunkers and surroundings. Greens a bit slow due to the Poa annua in blossom at this time of the year. Need some attention (sanding, rolling) to smooth the green surface to get a truer roll. A decent putting green would be nice, as well as a chipping area. Nice club house. Efficient staff. Buggies are new and clean. It’s value for money.

James 2021-05-03
Fantastic course and very well maintained. Beautiful clubhouse and terrace.

Jim Gillis 2021-04-28
The day was a pleasure from start to finish. As organizer of a small group, I met with the caddymaster and this fellow was exceptional to deal with. He should be giving lessons to others in dealing with the public. The course was in very good condition and little player pressure on the course so it made for a relaxing and very enjoyable round. The course itself is a treat to play with a good mix of holes and picturesque views. There are scoring opportunities on a couple shorter holes that can also bite if misplayed. I wouldn't hesitate to play here any time.

Marion Brosens 2021-04-19
Great course, always love to play it. Course Condition is good and we love the new clubhouse and terrace!

The course was in good condition, some nice challenging holes and some long ones too! The clubhouse is low key and dated, although great news, a new clubhouse is opening in a few weeks time which looks like it’s going to be lovely. Staff very nice and welcoming.

Mark Barnish 2019-10-07
first time I have played this course and was very impressed, fairways were mainly in good condition and the greens were superb and the truest we played on in four rounds. some parts f the course are a little scruffy in places and this detracts a little from the overall presentation but you have to think uor way around this course and there were one or tw spectacular holes which compensated. All of our four ball want to play this course again next year Clubhouse a little spartan but staff are very friendly and give great service

Patricia Horstead 2019-09-24
This was a great day for us at the golf course. It was in very good shape and the greens were so great! Once the new clubhouse is built this course will be fabulous!

Patricia Horstead 2019-09-22
We enjoyed our time on the course today. Play was a bit slow but course was fun!

Thelma Keating 2019-06-15
Very good, lovely course. Some delays in the round

Mark Hughes 2019-06-12
Nice course in good condition, let down by lack of facilities, is no driving range of bets and very limited clubhouse facilities, no changing rooms!

Sean Rynne 2019-06-04
Really nice course, totally recommend

Richard Crawford 2019-01-09
Easy book in process. Slight delay in in start because of early morning frost (20 degrees later in the day), but starter did a good job in getting schedule back on track. Course in excellent condition with good fast greens. Some really good risk and reward holes, a number of longish par 3s but fairways reasonably forgiving to make it good holiday golf. Silves is my favourite course of the three Pestana courses in the area. The others are Gramacho and Vale da Pinta, but while good they seem more manufactured and less natural than Silves. While there is nothing smart about the clubhouse, the staff are very friendly and it feels like a members club you'd find in some of the old Scottish clubs.

Carolyn Wright 2018-12-19
Absolutely loved Silves Golf course. Of the three courses it was by far in the best condition. The fairways and greens were first class. The staff in the cluhouse and around the course were very friendly. Will definitely be back.

Liz Scully 2018-06-24
Excellent course in good condition.

Norrie Jamieson 2018-06-14
This was a lovely course with no limitations on buggy use. Nothing too daunting but very interesting. Again, well maintained. Staff were great and helpful. Clubhouse facilities were not as chic as the resort courses, but were perfectly adequate for us. ( coffee pre golf and beer apres golf ) . Can't think of any downside except that en route as we neared the club, signage for the course took us off on to a dirt track for a long stretch which seemed superfluous. We skipped that on our return.

Colin Dixon 2018-06-06
Very enjoyable course in very good condition. We play here every year and will keep returning. Very helpful staff

Andy Davies 2021-01-25
Nice welcome but I think the course still needs to develop more. I'm sure it will be better once the construction work has been completed.

Paul Gray 2021-01-25
Excellent course

Neil Macklin 2020-09-30
Difficult to find to be honest .. great course in great condition.. once found...

Thea Tannemaat 2020-03-05
We had a very good round of golf very friendly people and we could finish 18 holes.Thea

Andrew Duncan 2020-03-03
We was never told it was a four ball as there was only two of us and made us very nervous

Edward Saltys 2020-02-24
I love this course. It was my 2nd time playing there.

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2019-12-30
Der Golfplatz Silves ist aufgrund der breiten Fairways und nur wenigen Hindernissen nicht sehr anspruchsvoll. In Bezug auf die umgebende Natur gibt es sicherlich schönere Golfplätze an der Algarve.

Thomas Chester 2019-12-10
Course great as always, bit of a slow round.

Stephen 2019-11-18
very, very slow was unable to finish my round. Smoke coming from the nearby factory almost made it impossible to breathe and play some of the holes.

Henk Van Derlit 2019-11-10
Silvis is a beautifull course, nice lay-out, perfect greens. The big nuisance is the Cork factory, especially when the wind is blowing in the direction of the course. It spoiled yesterday partly our fun of playing Silvis.

Jane Sheppard 2019-10-30
Lovely course very well kept greens were excellent will be back

Mick Long 2019-10-28
Favourite course of the 4 days. Bit of a long walk without buggies. Some well laid out holes with course in good condition.

Neil Wendel-Jones 2019-10-21
Generally excellent apart from the starter trying to rush on to the tee before our booked tee time because he said he had a big party behind us! So what surely they had tee times booked just as we did? Course in good condition, other staff friendly and helpful.

andrew 2019-10-20
good course. good experience. (not outstanding - better club house and changing facilities)

Bill Robertson 2019-10-20
Excellent course with good friendly staff.

steven ostle 2019-10-19

Lindsay Desmier 2019-10-16
First time on this course. Always been put off in the past due to reports of v slow rounds. However pleasantly surprised with a really nice course and not slow at all on this occasion.

Roger Moyse 2019-10-12
Well Kept but very busy.

Philip A Lander 2019-10-10
The golf course was lovely service was good but I think you need to tell Pestina golf to increase gaps between 4 balls it very slow.

Westley Macey 2019-10-01
Best condition golf course of all fairways and greens fantastic would definitely play again

Kimeta Schoenberg 2019-09-28
Golf course in very good shape. Goes up and down. Cart recommended.

Andy Hennessy 2019-09-21
We always enjoy Silves, very friendly Staff and the Course is in good condition, despite a lot of ongoing changes, which I am sure will make it even better.

Nick Jones 2019-09-21
Nice course, greens very slow, needed cutting but generally in good condition. Some challenges but not too demanding.

Geoffrey Corton 2019-09-20
Excellent. First time I've played at Silves and shall certainly play there again.

Robert Craig rea 2019-09-18
Course in good condition.

Graham Johnson 2019-09-17
I like this course. Every hole is different. Not the hardest of courses if you are playing well but most enjoyable

Neil Brady 2019-09-12

Philip Greenwood 2019-09-10

Odette Silvério 2019-09-09
Very warm and friendly welcome at reception by Rebeca....Course in very good condition

Alex Morgan 2019-08-18
Nice course with wide open fairways, some long challenging par 3’s. club house and facilities are basic

David Dawson 2019-06-29
Very friendly club, course was in good condition. No driving range and also we got there early hoping to get some breakfast but no food was on offer in clubhouse.

Jaap Schaap 2019-06-23
Very nice as always, a must for the true golfer. Great value for money.

John Rowcroft 2019-06-20
Good coarse to play again. The occasion was let down by the number of none golfers (4 groups on each hole) Still enjoyed it.

Neil Rodgerson 2019-06-17
Forgot how good this course is. Hidden Gem

Robert Craig Rea 2019-06-10
A very good course. No buggies available at our tee time but staff worked very hard to get buggies to us on the course.

Brian Miller 2019-06-08
Course good and staff very helpful. Other facilities are a basic - changing rooms would be a good enhancement.

Paul Whitney 2019-06-08
Great service, quick, friendly and professional

Chris 2019-06-06
Very nice golf course, in great condition. Will play this one again.

Ben Bembrick 2019-06-06
Really good course and in good condition. Staff are friendly and service excellent. In terms of value for money it rates high.

Brian Trenbirth 2019-06-02
Fair golf course with reasonable facilities. Greens were poor

Peter Tholen 2019-06-02
Good course, no practice facilities

Eamonn Ryan 2019-05-26
Silves is a challenging but fair course. Very enjoyable experience!

N Suffolk 2019-05-21
enjoyed a dry but slightly windy day at Silves GC, managed to make my handicap (15) which I was pleased with, and could have been even better if only i could putt !. - buggies on fairways which helps with pace of play.

Kim Bennett 2019-05-17
Beautiful course in excellent condition - in fact it was the best we've ever seen it. It was a joy to play

Martin Ruhle 2019-05-14
Rather hilly but very nice, old clubhouse

Mr Westland 2019-05-09
no comment nice course

Michael Graham 2019-04-07
Nice course. Clubhouse / changing facility letsit down slightly - but no bearing on the golf itself!

Stuart Armstrong 2019-04-06
First class course enjoyed by all

Kevin Thorne 2019-04-03
Fantastic golf course, very well maintained and in superb condition

Henk Van Derlit 2019-03-17
We had a most enjoyable golf day at Silvis. The course itaelf is beautifull and snenic, and very important well maintained. We are looping forward that the new clubhouse is completed, as the present temporary facilities are rather poor. The excellent weather yesterday Made it a perfect day.

Martin Mapplebeck 2019-03-15
Really enjoyed the course again. Good layout, excellent greens. The clubhouse is very poor, the new one is definitely needed - it seems to have been in progress for 5 years!!

Kathy Pennington 2019-02-01
Enjoyable round, very long par 5’s. Some challenging par 3’s. Greens and fairways well maintained.

Christiane Jacobsen 2018-12-15
Nice course, good shape, friendly stuff. Buggies too expensive.

Max De Groot 2018-11-29
good golf course, horrible clubhouse

Glyn Hughes 2018-11-21
An enjoyable course with some superbly landscaped holes. Enough challenges to make it interesting.

Henk van der Lit 2018-11-10
Good arrangement, nice course, nice people to play with. Henk van der lit

Günter Burkard 2018-11-02
Green are not really good .

Roger Moyse 2018-10-31
Much poorer condition than in the summer- very poor greens,.

Neil Wendel-Jones 2018-10-09

Allan Hayman 2018-10-08
Buggies are a must on this course

David Patterson 2018-10-07
Play was very slow and the staff appeared to do nothing to speed it up. It has been a few years since I last played the course and I won't hurry back.

Marcus Hoffmann 2018-10-05
in spite of construction works going on, very friendly staff and good overall experience due to scenic layout of course. greens seemingly infected with fungus and thus bumpy in parts

Conor kavanagh 2018-10-04

Andy Hennessy 2018-10-01
I have played Silves many times and I am always happy to go there, they are making some alterations to the Course at the moment including the construction of a New Clubhouse, the Greens were not as good as they used to be, but I have no doubt that when all the works are completed it will be great again.

Jeremy Nesbitt 2018-09-30
Excellent course with some excellent holes. The dissapoint8ng facilities let the whole exoeriece down; poor food choice, no changing or showering facilities. There’s a new clubhouse being built that will improve everything.

Paul Selway 2018-09-24
Excellent course in very good condition. The greens had a little disease in them but did not affect pace or lie

Alistair Walker 2018-09-20
Love this course - out in the countryside and scenery is stunning Course is testing enough and fun to play at same time. Great condition

Pamela Tate 2018-09-04
Very friendly staff. Course in excellent condition

Michael Carlsen 2018-08-18
Super dejlig bane, men mange flotte huller. Vi kommer igen

Gareth Toms 2018-06-27
Nice course, greens a bit bumpy

Simon 2018-06-25
Great course with a very friendly welcome

David Bowles 2018-06-24
An interesting golf course. A course set up to challenge all skill levels. Ease your way into the round but din’t be complacent just because they only short there is still a challenge. Some well designed holes a d so e a real challenge for the low handicapper. A course and a day to Enjoy

Max Kircher 2018-06-23
Great Course Had Fun Best place to play at with descent costs

Paul Whitney 2018-06-17
All good, but was kept waiting for the voucher as did not send through. However, was not required when we reached the golf course anyway as had also sent to them in advance.

Paul Brown 2018-06-17
Lovely course. Well kept and friendly staff.

Philip Sharpe 2018-06-12
Greens had just been maintained and so were running a little slow and bobbly but we fully understand that this work needs to be done. Other than that the course was in good shape. Very friendly bar staff, although the menu not in the same league as the other Pestana courses at Gramacho, Alto & Vale da Pinta. A little underwhelming in fact which was disappointing as we went there for a brunch before teeing off.

James John Galbraith 2018-06-11
All went well

Mr Steven J Grant 2018-06-06
Ist time played here. Nice layout, not too long but the rough (waste areas) need addressing - too easy to loose a ball without hitting a bad shot.

David Bridger 2018-06-04
Silves Golf had friendly and welcoming staff. The course was in good condition and had some challenging holes including a 625-yard par 5! Very good value for money all round

Peter Heinecke 2018-05-08
Silves a rough, interesting course

Daniel Mardell 2018-05-06
Lovely course, friendly staff and good amenities

Michael Blamire 2018-05-01
Very enjoyable, staff very helpful and friendly

René Olthof 2018-04-28
I had an off-day... but the course is nice. Do not get many strokes which makes it difficult to play your handicap. We stopped due to,rain and only 12,5C.. would like to play the course again under better conditions. Quality of the greens and fairways is very good.

Donal Byrne 2018-04-26
our favourite course! it was in great condition & very pleant to play

Graham Whittington 2018-04-16
Course in great shape, a fair test of golf for all levels.

Katharina Cugliari 2018-04-03
Very nice holes but a lot of construction around the holes. Great cappuccino.

Tania Segers 2018-04-01
OK golf course. Mediocre clubhouse, insufficient facilities (showers), too slow service in the clubhouse - not efficient,

simon smith 2018-03-25
Course was in very poor condition. Tee boxes untidy, not flat and not cut. Greens very bumpy and woolly. Food in the clubhouse was terrible. We won’t be playing Silves again

David Lewis 2018-03-03
Very enjoyable. Not played there for a few years. Well presented.

Higgins 2018-02-18
On time start and course in good condition

Ray Boxwell 2018-02-12
Some lovely holes on this course especially from the elevated tee boxes. Would play again.

Ernest Robinson 2018-02-02
Although the fairways were ok, the greens were a little uneven and putts 'bobbled' on a regular basis.

Axel Heuser 2018-02-01
Der Par-70 Platz bietet abwechselungsreiche Löcher. Die Drivelänge ist für einen guten Score nicht so entscheidend. Vielmehr bilden die modulierten Grüns eine Herausforderung. Die Grüns waren nicht makellos, wie wir es von den Dom-Pedro-Plätzen gewohnt waren. Der Platz ist von Golfern stark frequentiert. Die meisten sind mit Golfbuggies unterwegs. Es gibt einige Steigungen zu den einzelnen Löchern zu überwinden, so dass man gut zu Fuß sein sollte. Nachteilig ist, dass es hier keine Drivingranch gibt. Rund um den Platz entstehen Wohnungen. Für den Golfer wäre es angebracht, das Clubhouse zu modernisieren und eine ansprechende Duschgelegenheit zu schaffen. Das preisgünstige Greenfee von 46 € (bis 31.01) entschädigt ein wenig. Alles in allem lohnt es sich, diesen Platz (wenigstens) einmal zu spielen.

Barry Summerfield 2018-01-17
Overall very pleased with the course and reception. My only complaint was with the made to order rolls obtained from the on course buggy bar. The roll size was very small and certainly not worth the €4 I paid for it. I won't be buying any more food on the Pestano courses.

Roberta alder 2018-01-08
Beautiful course . Very long holes but very wide fairways. Scenery is breathtaking of the hills and gardens.

Marion Brosens 2017-12-30
Great course in good condition. Always nice to play here.

Jemson Chris 2017-12-04
I have organised a group of my former colleagues to play Silves frequently over the last few years. We have found the course to be a good test of golf in a peaceful area. For golfers wishing to play the Pestana courses of Gramachio, Pinta and Silves will find that together they will find extremely interesting and beautifull courses in excellent condition.

Mollett 2017-11-16
Welcoming staff, punctual tee times and good companions - only met on the day.

Yvonne Lee 2017-11-08
Big changes at Silves. We like the course. Every hole is unpredictable

Libor Stehno 2017-11-08
very good golf course

Eddie Karakas 2017-11-03
Good Course

Thijs Beetstra 2017-10-31
We liked the golf course very much. The lay-out is a bit strange but the holes are nice. A lot of construction activities (houses, roads) are going on although these do not interfere with the game.

Gordon Sim 2017-10-30
Good course, a little slow, friendly staff

David Murphy 2017-10-29
Really nice course, some amazing holes, good condition, note that the bar closes early, we finished playing at around 6pm and popped in for a drink but bar closed, not sure if that's usual. will play here again on next visit.

Susan Crawford 2017-10-29
Everything was spot on. The course was in fantastic condition. Our round was done in 4 hours which for a fourball with two players walking was very good pace. All the new building etc that is going on does not detract from the course.

Vanderlit 2017-10-26
Course is in perfect condition, friendly behaviour. What we were missing during our round was catering (drinks, snacks etc.) in the course. They should have told us when we started, as we had not enough water with us, and in Silvis you play 18 holes before you see the clubhouse again. Nevertheless a most enjoyable day. Henk van der Lit

Alan O'Brien 2017-10-23
Nice course. Couple of exceptional holes and a couple of forgettable holes. Didn't have the same wow factor of Vale de Pinta and Gramacho. Couple of long par 3s led to long delays waiting on the tee.

max de groot 2017-10-22
Nice course. English players and members behave as if the clubhouse is theirs. They dominate with lots of noise and show No respect to others or to the spirit of the game

Eddie Karakas 2017-10-20
The coordination was excellent. The course was in good condition. The golf cart fee of €45.00 was little too much.

Barry Oshea 2017-10-16
Clubhouse facilities very,very poor,,really lets the place down.

Peter Streets 2017-10-05
Good course played it twice before coming on nicely.

Erich Renz 2017-09-26

Andrew Ford 2017-09-21
Like the course but at times you were driving buggy thru standing water, not good

Paul Beard 2017-09-14
Great round but marred a little by the emissions from the cork factory

Trevor Kerr 2017-09-12
Always enjoy playng Silves and is my favourite one of the Pestana courses although it was in the poorest condition I have seen it. Greens were very slow and not in the best condition

Doug Smith 2017-06-28
Really enjoyed playing Silves again today. It's one of those courses that fits the eye. The greens were a little slow today and had been subject to some green keeping work. Nevertheless they played true but with little break. Some fairways were quite wet in small places, a sign of watering. All in all a great day out..

Sean Rynne 2017-06-25
Silves was in excellent condition, something very nice about playing this course, some excellent par 5's

Michael Baldwin 2017-06-20
Very slow as put us out as a 2 ball following 4 balls with trollies

Dave Thompson 2017-05-27
Great course and in fab condition. Hope to return

Doug Smith 2017-05-24
Always enjoy playing Silves. Not a long course, although the par 5 stroke index 1 seventh hole takes four good shots to get there in three. A course that you need to play more than once as it's a thinkers course, not suited to the wham bang big hitter player. A finesse course set in charming countryside. I like it.

Martin Punch 2017-05-16
Challenging Course, Cost of buggies now at 45€ which results in a lot of players not using buggies which slows up play

Jonathan Wesley 2017-05-16
Good course we'll maintained good clubhouse and good food

Ian Green 2017-05-15
Last course we played, but 1 we will definitely be visiting in 2018, really relaxed atmosphere, the course has plenty of character and challenges.

Andy Robinson 2017-05-07
Really good course in excellent condition. Fairways were like carpet, preferred lies not required. Well organised day , as always, by Doug and Tee Times Golf Agency. Company was brilliant, played with Doug, Carlos and Sean, ( who had a bit of a nightmare) but a really enjoyable fourball , even though Doug beat me on the back 9 count back !!!! And

Guter, gepflegter Golfcourse, aber Ambiente der Gastronomie und Sanitärräume nicht einladend. Keine Drivingranch.

Katharina Cugliari 2017-04-19
Also a very nice course. Easier to walk, some very pretty holes!

Bernd Bachmann 2017-04-16
The golf course Silves offers a varied course with three very nice higher tees, from which you can enjoy not only the view of the golf course, but also always like to play a long tee shot. The course is now in a good condition.

Gavin Glasgow 2017-04-12
First class course and staff are so friendly, helpful and professional

Gerry Malone 2017-04-12
Far far too slow, 5 hours 35 min to play 4 ball. No sign of a course ranger to speed things up. Credit card machine not working in shop and shop assistant not at all helpful.

Owen Joubert 2017-04-04
A bit out of the way and we thought it was somewhat uninspiring. A few very nice holes, but fairly forgettable.

Graham Lucas 2017-03-31
This course has matured beautifully over recent years - some signature holes are a delight. Suggest to yellow tee players: treat yourselves to the extra-elevated, but little extra distance, white tees on 2 of the par-5's, if not holding anyone up.

Silves was very busy slow play and the electric trollie I hired continually cut out making it very tiering to play.

Michael Richardson 2017-03-10
Greens were bumpy

Andy Robinson 2017-02-21
Interesting course,,not long but placement of shots was key to scoring well. Some spectacular holes with great views. A very enjoyable and playable course.

Hilary Minto 2017-02-02
We were paired with 2 professionals. Not an ideal pairing for an enjoyable round of golf although they were extremely nice people. No one asks for your handicap. If they had it might have made better pairings.

Libor Stehno 2016-11-16
good course

Susan Crawford 2016-11-13
This course was also in great condition. Pestana are doing a great job keeping their courses looking and playing very well.

Trevor Ward 2016-11-03
A lovely course in great condition and a very enjoyable day , many thanks

Julian Pallister 2016-10-31
In excellent condition and thoroughly enjoyed

John Rigg 2016-10-27
Friendly clubhouse. I did feel that the cost of club hire, bearing in mind the condition of the clubs provided was not very good. The driver head rattled and although a second driver was provided, it was not of high quality. The putter was also poor.

Adrian Fraser Jones 2016-10-24
Good value course

Robert Blackett 2016-10-15
Real challenge of a golf course with some spectacular holes. Thoroughly enjoyable and can't wait to play again. Staff were great

Derek Thomas 2016-10-14
Very busy 5hr+ round Nice course though

Great course , really enjoyed it, lots of par 3 holes

Neil Burton 2016-09-23
Ok, greens not as good as other courses

Ann Walker 2016-09-19
Looking a bit tatty will give it a miss next year

Malcolm MacDonald 2016-09-16
Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Leon Deakin 2016-06-27
Great 18 hole course very challenging everyone in the group enjoyed this course

Mandel 2016-06-23
Had to rearrange date as buggies not available for original tee time

Philip Buck 2016-06-22
Nice course a bit to far away.

robert craig rea 2016-06-20
Good friendly course

JIM CLARKE 2016-06-17
The only fault we found at Silves was, on day one our buggy broke down, It was however replaced quite quickly, day two on arrival we were told that there were no buggies at all, this later changed to one buggy being available and after considerable consultation a second buggy did become available. I have had heart surgery and a knee replacement and do require a buggy, can I suggest that when Booking Buggies should be part of the overall contract [ if required].

Klaus Grossmann 2016-06-06
Silves was very difficult to find; better way instructions on the Homepage would be very helpful (or more sign posts on the coutry roads).

Rosemary Dobson 2016-06-01
Enjoyed game. Course in more favourable condition than Gramacho. Unfortunately we had not pre booked a buggy and they were all out on the day we played. It was a long walk in the very hot temperature that day. We will know to pre book next time.

Jim Redmond 2016-05-28
Not a great course, the staff were friendly enough but I though it was very much overpriced and would not rush back to play it again

Derek Shortall 2016-05-23

Michaelis, Ulrich 2016-05-11
Well organized and flexible. Enjoyed.

Julian Pallister 2016-05-06
Improved immensely since I last played there a few years ago. Difficult to find as signposting poor.

Bill Robertson 2016-04-17
Excellent but see above

Mr Austin Brandt 2016-03-10
Great golfing experience and well maintained.

Eamonn Ryan 2016-03-09
A very good course. Unfortunately we encountered very heavy rain on the day and stopped playing after 8 holes. The management gave us a rain check for a free round within 12 months. Nice touch!

Jackie Robinson 2016-03-04
Amazingly crowded, which is a first

Hermann Heddens 2016-02-15
Schöner Platz,

Richard Power 2016-02-15
Nice challenging course with greens in good condition. I thought the course was a little over full and although we completed the round before dark there were possibly some who didn't. Would play again.

Axel Heuser 2016-01-31
Schnelle Grüns. Fahnen meist kurz gesteckt. Konnten keine Handtücher zum Duschen bekommen. Langsame Flights vor uns. Es fehlt ein Marshall, der den Stau entzerren könnte. Insgesamt: der Service müsste verbessert werden. .

Really enjoyable day, course very good as was the staff

Karel Reznicek 2015-11-16
Very good conditions

Susan crawford 2015-11-08
Enjoyed this course but got lost finding it even with sat nav which took us to a back gate that was not open to vechicles!

Neil Brady 2015-10-24
No faultless, great day and great course

Allan Duffy 2015-10-22
Ok course but very difficult to find as there were very few signs

Per Thorp 2015-10-20
Very slow play, We had a 13.53 tee time but couldn't finish before dark. Raincheck? We planned to have lunch before start but the kitchen was closed :-(

Lynne Grant 2015-10-15
Excellent condition enjoyed the round very much
