Palmares golf course, is located near the historic town of
Lagos and is one of the most beautiful of the Algarve golf courses and
referred to as 'the
jewel in the crown of the Algarve'
The views from Palmares golf course are simply
spectacular! overlooking the white sands and dunes of Meia Praia
Beach and the bay of Alvor. It also has the magnificent Monchique
mountains as its backdrop.
Opened in 1975, Palmares golf course
is an 18 hole, par 71 golf course which was designed by one of the most
prominent golf course architects Frank Pennink and is an excellent test
of golf for players of all abilities.
Palmares golf course
is unique amongst the Algarve golf
courses, due to 5 of the opening 6
holes being played in links conditions, down amidst the sand dunes of
Meia Praia beach, with the long par 5 fifth hole being one of the
greatest links golf holes in Europe!
The remaining 13 holes are played under more park land style conditions
and pose their own different challenges to that of the links section.
