• Overview

    It has been some years since we were last in Lagos, and it will be good to be back.  Dinner will be taken at the hotel on four evenings, with the restaurants of Lagos to be sampled on the other three evenings.  With a superb hotel, three wonderful golf courses and a coastal based location for the week, the tour offers the perfect opportunity to escape the winter blues back at home.  As always with our tours, we place huge emphasis on the social camaraderie of the events, ensuring great golf, a super hotel and a fun social week in the company of like-minded golfers.

    Described as a ‘House by the Sea’, the Onyria Palmares Beach House Hotel is set in a quite unique landscape, located between the 27th hole green of the sublime Palmeras Golf Club and the Driving-Range and just 700 meters from the beach.  The 20 rooms are all decorated in soft colours, and with spacious balconies designed in order to frame a panoramic view over the fascinating Lagos Bay and the long beach of Meia Praia, which stretches from the estuary of the ‘Ria de Alvor’ to the historical walls of the city of Lagos. The bar lounge becomes a meeting place where we can taste a cocktail while we rest and enjoy the calm of the sea waves and the tranquility that the landscape offers. In the restaurant we can experience a cuisine that prefers the authenticity that fresh flavors of the Mediterranean gastronomy provide and top personal service.  Weather permitting, we can also dine outside on the generous and pleasant terrace, with its exquisite panorama across the bay.  The Onyria Palmares Beach House is a very good location for our golf week!

    Palmares Golf Club


    The Alvor Course – Located primarily on the northern part of the golf estate, the Alvor course has a parkland character with mature trees and lovely views of the Monchique hills.  Changes in elevation are integral to the design of this nine as a majority of the golf holes ascend hillsides or descend through intimate valleys. The parkland setting disappears briefly with a series of holes with more expansive views.  A preview of the dunes and links holes to come is provided in the sixth and seventh holes. As the round concludes, the course again assumes the parkland character.

    The Lagos Course – The Lagos Course begins with the same parkland character. This course incorporates the only two lakes found on the golf estate at the short par-3 third hole and the long par-4 sixth hole. Holes seven and eight immerse players into the expansive dune lands on the southwestern portion of the site. The round concludes with a climb to the Clubhouse and back into a more parkland setting.

    The Praia Course – The third nine at Palmares presents the golf experience every great designer dreams of having the privilege to create; a seaside landscape with dunes exposed to the elements.  The four seaside holes are between the beach and the railway line. The course opens by descending from a parkland setting. The second hole then whisks players into the true links part of the course.  This dunes character is continued through the remainder of the Praia Golf Course with the closing hole, a strong uphill par-5, rising up out of the dunes through a deep valley to an Amphitheatre just below the Clubhouse.

    BoaVistaGolf Club

    Opened in January 2002, Boavista Golf Resort quickly became established as one of the Western Algarve’s premier resorts. With an exceptional 18-hole championship course it is one of the Algarve’s most beautifully manicured courses, bordered by properties all designed to harmonize with the land’s natural contours. Breathtaking views, spectacular scenery and the crystal clear Atlantic Ocean, visible from most holes, all combine to make the course a delight to the eye, as well as being an absolute joy to play.

    Alamos Golf Club

    The Alamos 18-hole golf course is one of the newer courses to be inaugurated in the Algarve.  Lying to the north of Portimao, it is laid out as a neighbour to its sister course Morgado.  The setting is a large 980 hectare estate through undulating small valleys.  The immediate main characteristic of the Alamos Course is its large greens which place demand on good putting skills as they are often raised above the fairway approach and involve several levels. Also, the accuracy of the shot of the player will be questioned by deep aggressive bunkers.
