Stunning views at every turn. Beautiful, natural links holes with tight lies on undulating fairways. Sweeping parkland holes with valleys, hills and contours. Smooth, true, receptive greens throughout. We play off 13 and 36 and both had a fabulous time. Very helpful and friendly staff. The starter had even asked a group of 12 (playing as 3 groups of 4...

With out any doubt, one if the best courses we have played in Portugal...and we've played loads! Three loops of nine, choose which ever 9 you play and you will not be disappointed .It was busy....and... More

Third visit and certainly not disappointed. We just love this place! The friendly staff. The informality. The magnificent golf. The stunning views. Good value for money. Lovely terrace. Looking forward to the 20 room hotel opening soon so we can give that a try!

So wanted to award five stars to Palmares, where to begin? The course is just superb, a real test of golf, sorry but higher h'cappers need not apply! It really is a difficult course in places, I play off a decent std of 17, but a times it was almost too hard, the greens are superb. The staff were really... More

Just played this course on a recent trip. Played 1-18. Never played the other 9 but hope to do so soon. It always delivers. The greens are great as are the fairways, and the views are awesome. Sea views across to Portimao and beyond. Always a sea breeze to make your shots just that bit more difficult to judge. A... More

Third time I have played here, each time the round was very long, and constantly held up by slow play in front. The marshals were useless, and served no purpose. The course is badly maintained, fairways bare in places, and the tees untidy. There are people selling lost golf balls on several holes, which should not be allowed. The staff... More

I've been golfing in the Algarve many times over the last 20 years and this was the first time that I visited Palmares. What a treat. Our group are all low handicaps and so we are primarily motivated by the quality of the golf course and we all loved Palmares. It has three loops of nine, each offering a contrasting... More

Absolutely loved our round at Palmares. Amazing variety between the nines - from beautiful parkland to stunning links. And a true test of golf. Have played many courses on the Algarve and none get close to the views that Palmares offers, both on the course and whilst enjoying a well-earned drink at the bar afterwards.

Since this was my first trip to the Algarve, I really wanted to enjoy the golf experience. I had pre-arranged the golf through my hotel and made it clear that I would need rental clubs. When we arrived at the course, we were told that they only had one set of clubs available for the two of us. The set... More

Played in three three balls. Original tee off time 1.50. Course massively overbooked. Eventually teed off at 2.35. After 1 hr we had only completed 2 holes. At 6.10 we gave up after only completing 9 holes due to overbooking / slow play ahead. When we arrived there were no buggies available and, unbelievably, no trolleys. The course had no... More
