Salgados Golf Course is nestled in a natural reserve just outside of Albufeira.
Salgados Golf Course, which opened its doors in 1994, is a fantastic golf course with plenty of water. The Course was built on a former aeroplane landing strip and a wetland area next to the well-known bird sanctuary.
Salgados is one of the most distinctive golf courses in the Algarve. Although it is set in a Florida setting, the course has the feel and spirit of a Scottish Links course. Water hazards are strategically placed on almost every hole.
Located next to Praia de Gale's beach, the Salgados Golf Course has an 18-hole layout and is more reminiscent of a traditional Links Course. An open golf course is not only is design but also for the elements. Therefore it has little vegetation and plenty of water hazards. This is a top-rated course and for a good reason.
One side of Salgados Beach is a protected area that is home to several kinds of birds, while the other features vast, sandy stretches of sand. Links-style golf course with coastal winds blowing and plenty of wildlife. Walking on Salgados Golf Course is an easy and enjoyable experience because of its position, with the greens and tee boxes all within a few yards of each other. The yellow tees will ensure that you have an enjoyable round. If you're feeling confident, you can play from the white tees if you have a single-digit handicap or are an experienced player.
Golfers may have a one-of-a-kind experience at this course, which is home to a variety of endangered bird species. The proximity to the shore and the course's sea views make it a particularly enjoyable place to play golf.
Despite its length, the seventh is one of the more challenging par fours on the course, measuring little over 400 yards from the tee. The hole runs adjacent to the bird sanctuary. The strong prevailing wind and narrow fairway play a significant role in getting a decent drive away. The second shot also needs a high degree of precision since greenside dangers await errant strokes.
The Clubhouse is a beautiful location to unwind with a cold drink after a long day of golf. The terrace facing the golf course is a beautiful sun trap, yet the Atlantic wind will keep you cool. The Clubhouse has an extensive draught selection of local and foreign beers and a respectable local wine list. The Steak Sandwich, on the other hand, is a great winner.
