It is next door to one of Europe’s unique nature reserves, which has a lake and is home to exotic birds. This course, which is located in Herdade dos Salgados, just 10 minutes from the centre of Albufeira.
The golf course is situated within a wildfowl habitat between sand dunes and marshland and has been designed to flow perfectly with the surrounding area. The ground is relatively level however with so much water obstacles around the course, each whole still presents a different challenge. Accuracy is vital on this golf course so good concentration is a must. Salgados Golf consists of a varied selection of holes ranging from 185 yard par 3’s to 550 yard par 5’s. The best hole on the course is surely the first, where the view from the tee firmly stamps the character into the players mind. If you are looking for a golfing challenge that will really test your accuracy, then Salgados Golf will provide you with just that.
Here, almost all the holes are flanked by lagoons and one (number 6) is considered one of the most difficult of the world, as it has a lot of water and is very long.
Holes 7, 8 and 15 are among the loveliest of the course (and region!).
