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

Beautiful course, but seriously slow. Has 27 lovely holes giving a fair test but tee times in afternoon are running at least half hour late and round lasts 5+hours. Should make everyone take buggy or spread out tee times. Basic clubhouse but really understaffed, another long wait for much needed refreshments!

I have not played here since the course was completely re-built and what a transformation. The quirky clubhouse remains the same but that is about the only thing!! The staff were so helpful prior to our round. We took sandwiches and water out with us and as each 9 returns to the clubhouse it is easy to get a top... More

Played this last on our golf trip and I have to say it is one of the best Iv played, the scenery is amazing as the course was in fabulous condition. We played starting on the 19th (Praia) so got to play the links holes first which were some of the best holes Iv played, then on to holes 1-9... More
