Palmeras golf is 5Km east of Lagos, a friendly fishing village with all amenities andsome of the best beaches on the Algarve. Lagos means lake and lies at the mouth of the Bensafrim river. In Lagos the fun continues after the sun goes down and there are plenty of restaurants and entertainment for all ages. Lagos attracts an international cosmopolitan crowd. To get to Palmeras follow “Meia Praia” and “Golf” road signs near the marina at the eastern outskirts of Lagos on the N125 main road to Portimão. Take care at the two railway level-crossings on the way. An alternative route from the N125 is south from the village of Odiáxere. Part of the road is rough and unpaved and it is not recommended in wet weather.
Palmares, an interesting course, is best known for its breathtaking scenery. The setting is idyllic, with the majority of the holes on gentle slopes above the extensive beach stretching from the new Lagos marina to the mouth of the Alvor River
Course architect Frank Pennink took full advantage of the magnificent site and, in passing, threw in a sequence of five pure links holes between the railway and the beach, evoking memories of famous British layouts.
The upper holes wind through groves of almond and fig trees and the course is renowned for its annual Almond Blossom tournament week in February. It is then that the trees, covered in a mass of pink and white bloom create an unforgettable site.
