When Portugal was gaining prominence as the leading golf destination in Europe many courses were developed to cater growing interest. The Alamos Golf Course was one of them. It was developed as a sister course to Morgado Course located just a few meters from Alamos.
Opened in 2006, the Alamos Course is situated in 980 hectares landscape surrounded by valleys, Monchique Mountains, and vineyards. The two sister golf courses, Alamos and Morgado, that are part of the Morgado do Reguengo Resort are the main attractions of Portimao.
The Alamos is the smaller one of the two courses. But, visitors must keep in mind that what Alamos lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. The course guarantees a memorable golfing experience to players of all skill levels. This course may be relatively new and smaller, but it has all the features of a world class, championship course.
The characteristic features of this 18-hole, par-71 golf course are large, elevated greens, irregular fairways, native trees bordering many holes, fewer but deeper bunkers, and two large lakes. Players are advised to be in their best form to negotiate the challenges of this course.
Since the course is smaller, players have to adjust to the pace at which they hit their drives. Furthermore, the irregular fairways increase the risk of landing the ball in out-of-bounds. To counter golfers are expected to be more accurate. Try to stay away from the bunkers; they are deep. Once the ball is in, you’ll have a tough time recovering from the mistake. Finally, the raising greens demand a solid putting play from the players.
Golfers visiting the Alamos Golf Course will get to benefit from excellent practice facilities that include two putting greens, two chipping areas, and two driving range tees. People manning the pro shop at the Alamos will guide you in choosing the best golf equipment. If you don’t want to purchase, an easier option would be to rent the stuff you want. Buggies and trolley rental are also made available to guests. For the best golf instruction and advice, guests, both individual and groups, can approach the golf academy. The spacious clubhouse sits pretty, offering a fine view of the golf course and Monchique Mountains. You can socialize with other golfers at the bar or restaurant.
In essence, the Alamos is a wonderful golf course that has something to offer every guest wanting to have a fine golfing experience in Portugal.
