Real players reviews on Palmares Golf Course

  • Clive Davies 2011-11-29 09:44:49

    Played within a Society on a sunny Friday morning and 1st visit to Palmares for 6 years and what a difference in the course.

    Some excellent views and the layout of the new course can be very challenging even for the low handicappers.

    You could not fault the condition of the greens and the pace of them was lightning.

    The work that has gone in to transform the course for me has been money well spent and hopefully
    the quality will continue.

    The only downside is the pricing of the coffee pre golf of 3 euros, lets not be greedy but package properly and we will travel on a regular basis from Vilamoura to play such a quality course.

    This was another visit to Palmares this year for the complete 27 holes for a return match between the Society and Rod Yates’ Lagos team. Strong turnout with x32 players enabled us to fix eight football matches with the chance to win one point for your team on each of the nine holes – full handicap stableford. This way your pairing were virtually always in the game.

    Early start this time at 09.00 so as to ensure we all got round. Thanks again to Rod for arranging the ‘picnic’ of food which was enjoyed out on the course.

    We couldn’t have asked for better weather for the time of year – blue skies and sunny with no wind made for truly magnificent playing conditions. We were all clear by 4.30pm to re-assemble at a local beach bar on Meia Praia for the some well deserved liquid refreshment. A delightful meal of piri-piri chicken, grilled fish & salad rounded the day of perfectly. Shame the result was not better for us!

    Os meus agradecimentos a toda a equipa de Palmares que esteve de forma muito profissional em todos os momentos da prova.

    A opinião dos membros foi clara.
    Adoraram o campo, que se apresentou em condições fenomenais, com vistas que dispensam quaisquer comentários e adoraram o serviço prestado pela vossa equipa, que esteve irrepreensível, incluindo o almoço e todos os detalhes inerentes à organização.

    Os meus parabéns.

    Hi Palmares

    Played new holes on beach for first time
    Really good and greens spectacular !!

    The other holes are all coming on and maturing well too
    with them looking more and more natural every visit

    Now you have the correct order with the full 27 holes the balance is great and it all blends together - really impressed

    Well done!

    Dear Charles,

    Good to hear such nice feedback. The links holes are something special. The long and natural tee boxes are something unique and the greens a true challenge!

    Thanks again for the comments,

    I played Palmares about 20 years ago so was a little apprehensive when I heard they'd redesigned it but am pleased to say the changes are excellent and this is going to be one of the best in the Algarve.
    We played in February and were really pleased by the condition of the course (very quick pure greens). The front nine is nearly 4000 yards off the tips so a real test but the back nine is a little easier with some short par 4's and reachable par 5's.
    Well worth visiting if you are in the Algarve, is up there with the best in my opinion.

    i have just played the course on saturday and i would not recommend it to anyone. whilst the front nine are good, the back 9 are like playing on a building site. very disappointing.

    PLease, i would to know, in which month/year you will open the new Palmares?
    with regards k.Kalinowski

    Dear Mr. Kalinowsky,
    Thanks for asking about Palmares. October 2010 saw the opening of 18 of the new holes. Availability of the full 27 holes is scheduled for late April ´11.
    The new “Onyria Palmares”, which has been totally transformed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, is a mixture of parkland and authentic links – something unique in the Algarve.
    Palmares is a new and truly unique Algarve golf experience!!

    Kindest regards
    Onyria Palmares Team
