Algarve Golf (UK) Ltd. : Algarve Golf Course Information
 · Parque da Floresta

Designed by Pepe Cancedo, one of Spain's most respected architects, whose philosophy of golf course construction involves minimal alteration to the existing terrain. Its widely varying holes run through valleys, vineyards and eucalyptus covered ravines, and are flanked by olive, plum and pine trees.

The first hole is a 312m par 4 which curves graciously towards the east, and a challenge for those wishing to reach it in two. The first nine ends memorably, as the third shot to the green must go over a stream. On the second nine, the highlight is the 11th, whose green is well protected by water, and the 18th, which ends in an amphitheater right beneath the clubhouse. The clubhouse is typically Portuguese and offers spectacular panoramic views over the mountains and sea, besides a general view over eleven of the holes.
