When a much loved course undergoes a massive renovation it’s loyal supporters can be concerned. In the skilled hands of designer of the calibre of Robert Trent Jones Jnr the success of Palmares was never in doubt.
Blessed with a landscape of truly rare natural beauty he has not disappointed.
The 3 loops of 9 offer Parkland, Dunes and Links holes. As Trent Jones Jnr himself said. The Links Park with natural dunes land is very rare… a kind of soft Scotland but a much warmer Scotland!
The Alvor Loop has a real parkland character with some amazing views across the Bay of Alvor.
The Lagos loop has a mixture of parkland and dunes with 8th Holes offering a glorious view over the course and Lagos Bay.
The Praia Nine has mixture of pure links holes and dunes golf which require you to have a different variety of golf shots " in your bag".
These loops offer a combination of wonderful golf holes that you want to play over and over again.
"The courses of Boavista and Palmares were in very good condition. We enjoyed to play there"
- Mr. K. Hess -
"Golf courses were great especially Palmares, this course has been completely re designed and now has 27 holes so you can play 3 different loops. We played 1-18 Championship course and although we had to wait 30 mins for Buggies it was well worth it and we had the whole course to ourselves and it was magnificent possibly the best course I have played ever!"
- Mr. R. King -
"Palmares was everyone’s favourite. It was in good condition but it has changed from the original which was really lovely."
- Ms. L. Halstead -
"Palmares, service good/friendly, course in excellent condition. No buggys, perhaps we should have pre booked them. Look forward to playing this course again."
- Mr. J. Merity -
"Although I have played golf in the Algarve and Lisbon areas over the past 20 years this is the first time I have played at 'Palmares.' The course is a great challenge especially the greens and I hope to play it again in coming years. The addition of the latest 9 holes is also advantageous, particularly in my case when I played 3 rounds, allowing me to play all the holes during my stay. The service and Buggy hire arrangements also worked well."
- Mr. G. Reid -
"Palmares is always a joy to play, not only an excellent 27 hole complex but fantastic views from the course and clubhouse patio."
- Mr. S. Leach -
