Where to Stay: Salgados Dunas Suites
Alamos golf course opened for play in 2006, making it a fairly new addition to the Algarve and was created by European Golf Design. Alamos Golf is part of the Nau Hotels and Resorts and sits at the very heart of the Morgado de Reguengo Resort.
The golf course is not the longest and measures just short of 4,800 yards from the back tees. Accuracy off the tee, however, is paramount as the fairways are narrow and are technical in design. A careful gaze is always required to all the golfers before making the next shot into the small undulating greens.
The additional facilities here are plentiful with 2 practice Tees, 2 chipping greens, and an extensive golf academy. The large clubhouse also houses the restaurant, bar, and a fully stocked pro-shop. Although not essential our recommendation here would be to take a buggy, some of the walks from green to tee are farther than they first look.
A great test of golf for golfers of all abilities and a great addition to the Algarve’s already varied and pretty extensive golf course portfolio.
Alamos Golf is located on the Morgado Resort in the Portuguese Algarve. Slightly further inland than many of the other golf courses in the region, Alamos Golf remains very easy to reach thanks to links with Faro Airport. Anyone flying to the Algarve for a golfing break will be landing in Faro, so even with the flight time in mind, it’s possible to leave the UK and be on the first tee, in a matter of hours.
Situated in Morgado de Reguengo, the Alamos golf course in Portugal is an established layout and has previously hosted the Portuguese Open on the European Tour Circuit. You can pair this course with a round at Salgados for a fantastic golf trip to Portimao.
