Text provided by the Portuguese Tourist Office

Situated in one of the best known regions of the Algarve, between Albufeira and Armacao de Pera, Salgados is already a ‘picture postcard’ of Portuguese golf. In fact the proximity of the sea and the variety of lakes make this a very interesting test of golfing skills, different to other courses in the Algarve.

The original project is by the Portuguese designer Pedro de Vasconcelos, with more recent contributions from other Portuguese architects. But the final layout has been heavily influenced by Robert Muir Graves.

The 6,000 metre links, replete with water obstacles, are not very long, yet you will need all your skills to reach the greens. The accuracy of the drive is crucial for achieving good scores, thus making the course a pleasant experience, especially for technically skilled players.

The eighteen holes are well balanced, as each half of the course has two Par 5 holes of around 500 metres and two Par 3 holes of more than 170 metres. Par for the course is 72.
