Description

 

Palmares was totally transformed in 2010/11 by leading American designer Robert Trent Jones Jr and now has 27 holes providing a mixture of parkland and authentic links – something unique in the Algarve. The higher part of the course features unforgettable views of the Ocean and Alvor estuary. The lower holes near the beach incorporate links dunes and long grasses and the sound of the sea.

 

PRAIA

Par 36

White Tees = 2969m, Yellow Tees = 2723m, Ladies Tees = 2242m

The Praia nine at Palmares provides a seaside landscape with dunes exposed to the elements. The four seaside holes are between the beach and the railway line. The course opens by descending from a parkland setting. The second hole then whisks golfers into the true links part of the course. This dunes character is continued through the remainder of the Praia Golf Course with the closing hole, a strong uphill par-5, rising up out of the dunes through a deep valley to an amphitheatre just below the clubhouse.

 

ALVOR 
Par 36

White Tees = 3352m, Yellow Tees = 3115m, Ladies Tees = 2428m

Located primarily on the northern part of the site, the Alvor Course has a parkland character with mature trees and lovely views of the Monchique hills.  Changes in elevation are integral to the design of this nine as a majority of the golf holes ascend hillsides or descend through intimate valleys. The parkland setting disappears briefly with a series of holes with more expansive views.  A preview of the dunes and links holes to come is provided in the sixth and seventh holes. As the round concludes, the course again assumes the parkland character.

 

LAGOS

Par 36

White Tees = 3164m, Yellow Tees = 2957m, Ladies Tees = 2468m

The Lagos Course begins with the same parkland character. This course incorporates the only two lakes found on the entire site at the short par-3 third hole and the long par-4 sixth hole. Holes seven and eight immerse golfers into the expansive dune lands on the south western portion of the site. The round concludes with a climb to the clubhouse and back into a more parkland setting.
