Inside information about the Palmares golf course

The Palmares golf course Portugal is located on a simply impressive and beautiful stretch of the dramatic West Algarve coastline, a location that give golfers feels of a link course that would be comfortably at home in Scotland or Ireland (the origins of golfing). The course incorporates a Par-72 layout that is one of 2 halves with the front-nine measuring precisely 3,700 yards off the white tees. With a Par-37, the course offers several birdies opportunities but bogies are more likely than birdies, with a fast running. Generally, with the series of holes comfortably meandering through striking sand dunes and extensive fairways, golfers are reminded that they are not golfing in the United Kingdom but rather, in the tropical heat of the awesome Algarve sunshine.

The current format of the golf course incorporates two completely different nines with holes to nine, clearly featuring certain stunning vistas towards Avor while most of the back nine spreads on the coastline towards Lagos Town. With the Palmares golf club further developments in the course’s pipeline to add more nine holes, as in a 27-hole golfing resort, the course will provide golfer makers with a great experience that will surely leave behind a life-long impression that will make the course a mainstay of any golfing holidays, I can bet on that.
