Alto Golf & Country Club, located in Portugal’s Western Algarve, is a premier golf and country club resort, set in beautifully landscaped gardens with villas, apartments and townhouses, many with superb views of the sea, the golf course or the fabulous gardens.|The winding fairways and elevated greens reflect Sir Henry’s golfing philosophy of providing low handicap players with a testing game and still affording plenty of enjoyment for players at average club level and providing satisfaction and inspiration for beginners. The opening nine holes offer fine views over the bay of Lagos. The back nine, set on rolling slopes, include the remarkable Henry Cotton Challenge, the longest Par 5 in Europe.
Great course, greens had just been too dress and hollow tined so were a little bumpy. Other than that, good experience
Like all the courses we played, the course was desperately in need of rain. But third time I've played it and it was better than I thought. Enjoyed the day
Good course but tees need attention. Receptionist not very welcoming. Clubhouse good.

Wet and unfriendly reception.

We came with good expectations after four days of no rain and were very disappointed to find that fairways were not cut and we are playing like in semi rough on first nine and then hole 16 and 18 on second nine. This should not be offered on a course of this standard, no roll and sometimes problem to find your ball on fairway. Greens are fine.
Tricky course with a lot of doglegs drives hit too far leave you blocked out on many holes....definitely a course that you would benefit playing a few times
Really friendly in reception and the starter went out of his way to be helpful. The course was in good condition, the best greens we played on all week. The waiter who dealt with us after our round was vey friendly. Pace of play was fine. In respect of Palmares on the Thursday, we were paired with a couple who took at least 20 shots to get to every green and then insisted on putting out ! The manager at Palmares failed to show after my complaint the day before, the course bunkers still had not been maintained and the washed out sand damage by the rain was still evident. How they maintain there No 2 rating in the Algarve is baffling. Alto was the complete opposite .
Great course. One of our favourites. Buggy rental expensive
