Alto Golf Course

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.

Pleasant and professional welcome in the shop. Asked to allow a single player to join us which was fine. Interesting course - some tight drives and nearly every green was elevated meaning you couldn’t run shots in.

Thelma Keating2019-06-13
Beautiful course , greens in very poor condition, made play difficult, but we had a day out.

Garry Gordon2019-05-02
Lovely course in very good condition and great service from the wonderful staff

James J. Bunyan2019-04-12
Very challenging to play it for first time.

Robert Hart2019-04-07
Good reception. The starter was excellent and made sure we had our slot even though it was in the middle of a Swedish visiting party's competition. Everybody was very friendly, played at a good pace (4hours), the course was in good condition. Slight issue that all the flags were on the front of greens with too little variation. But all round a good day.

Uwe Lehmann2018-08-27
Everything fine. Warm welcome at the reception, shorttimed start procedere, Course in top condition. Everything went well, we will take your Services again, it was the best we even could expect

Chris Hamilton2018-07-14
Course in good condition. Had been heavily watered so the front 9 plays a lot softer than the back 9. However the greens were firm and fast. I like what they’ve done to shorten the very long par 5, putting in the par 3. Still a good test.

Bill McDonald 2019-11-06
Tamara was very helpful with good understanding of what we wanted She very helpful

Mick Long2019-10-28
Nice tight course. Greens sanded so hard to judge. Faoways and tees only average.

great course great value and a great price .

Ian Beattie2019-09-12
Good meet & greet on arrival, Alto team member met us when we arrived, and we were given clear guidance on check in, course was good, and good service in bar after golf

Dino Schoenberg 2019-09-10
Very nice course, narrow but beautiful and challenging in perfect condition.

Stephen Oliver2019-07-05
Greens had been hollow tined and had not recovered fully at time of play 24/6/19 otherwise good experience all round.

W D Gibson2019-06-20
The course has been a good test of golf in the past Unfortunately when we played it had been tyned with a lot of sand on greens/fairways. I would not recommend playing early June. The 10 Euro difference is not worth it , other Pestana courses are better this time of year

pat wallace2019-06-19
It was raining at our tee time and the starter was very accommodating allowing us to go out later when the rain had stopped

Paul Moore2019-05-13
Very helpful and would recommend to any one. Will certainly use again next year

Segers eric2019-04-24
Ok course Small and difficult to attack greens

Anders Lindblad2019-04-23
Unfortunately we played it in rain, which makes the whole experience a bit difficult to judge fairly. rather hilly course with many doglegs

Stuart Armstrong2019-04-06
Very impressed by the improvements made, will always book this course

Richard Oakley2019-04-05
The reserved golf buggy was not available. Assured by the receptionist that course was flat and walking not a problem. We found it hilly - too many of the holes on plateau greens and many were dog legs to the right.

Allan Moore2019-02-13
Course in very good condition and pace of play was very good - a very enjoyable experience

Charles Henry Allan Moore2019-02-08
Course in good condition and pleasant to play but needs more effective marshalling to speed up some groups - we took around 4.45 hours and group in front was very slows so that there was a big gap ahead of them by the end.

Very nice golfcourse.

Bob-Jan dietrich2019-01-08
Good greens

Heuzeroth Dirk 2019-01-04
Nice to play, good value for money.

Fred Zickmantel 2018-10-31
Challenging especially due to the elevated greens. Greens excellent conditions

It was wonderfulbagain ??????????????

Andy Hennessy2018-09-24
I have not played Alto for about 4 years, it has improved immensely and I would highly recommend to any golfers, greens are perfect also Fairways & Tee boxes, I enjoyed my game, playing with a couple on Holidays from Bournemouth in England. This Golf course has some lovely features.

R Cavanagh2018-08-30
A warm welcome and course in excellent condition.

Super service

Great service thanks

Grier Frank2018-08-24
Quick reliable service Much appreciated

Hans Ekmann2018-07-12
Layout dies not coincide with our gps.

Mike Tattersall2018-07-07
Nice tree lined golf course and a good challenge as the course is quite tight off the tee. Greens were very good.

Philip Sharpe2018-06-21
Course very wet from the overnight rain and, as a result, the greens were also very slow. Always very friendly over there and good 19th hole menu.

Paul Brown2018-06-17
Very challenging tree lined course but in excellent condition

Ann White2018-06-01
Course & Clubhouse facilities were all very good

Nicholas Georgevic2018-05-08
Fair test of golf. Some narrow drives, greens tight with good speed.

Michael Graham2018-04-30
Good course Clubhouse welcoming

Sean Desmond2018-04-30
Good Course. Very enjoyable. Disappointed with clubhouse food facilities when we finished

Stuart Armstrong 2018-04-27
We have played alto for many years and since the involvement of Pestana group we have found improvement year upon year until now it is one of our favorite courses which we will play in the future.

Donal Byrne2018-04-26
in great condition. a bit hilly! we love a few beers overlooking the 18th green.

Tres bon accueil Parcours de ville, etroit avec des petits greens surelevés et à plateau...bref, pas simple ;) mais les bons coups sont recompensés ;) Tres bon moment avec mon pere. Parfait

Katharina Cugliari2018-03-27
Good pace, nice service. Excellent first round.

Phil Sharpe2018-03-24
Course was in good condition and, teeing off first thing, meant we were able to get round quickly. Friendly staff in the bar and the clubhouse, we will return.

Gordon Sim2018-03-11
Slow play

Diane McNally 2018-03-01
Course moved well. Everything was fine except the weather!!

On time start and course in very good condition.

Henk Eilander 2018-02-10
Verynice course,

George Rutherford2018-02-07
well kept course good test and excellent price

Barry Summerfield2018-01-22
The course was in very good ondition, an attractive but shortish layout. My only criticism was that us as a two ball got stuck behind a four ball for the last seven holes do progress was painfully slow.There was no marshalls going around to Dodd play up. A map of the 18 hole layout on the scorecard would be helpful, more so at the other Pestaba golf courses in the area rather than Altos.

Veronique Quint2018-01-14
Very nice !

Roberta alder2018-01-04
Beautiful course. Long sweeping doglegs. Great condition.

Marion Brosens2017-12-30
Beautiful park land city course in great condition. The new par 3 and the shorter par 5 is a big improvement.

CHARLES COE2017-11-11
Good course and good greens. Very enjoyable.

Thijs Beetstra2017-11-01
We always like to play here. Not a spectacular golf course nor very difficult but enjoyable. Some changes were made (two par-5’s became par 4’s, a par-3 was eliminated and a new one created) which made the course even better.

Susan Crawford 2017-11-01
Didn't enjoy this course since it has been changed in layout. Very long par 4s that were hard to reach in 2 good shots!! Very rough grass even on fairways. Disappointing as there has been a lot of work done by pestana to bring this course up to a good standard.

Gordon Sim2017-10-30
Course condition poor, particularly fairways, speed of plat satisfactory

Daniel Kirwan2017-10-13
Average course

Geoff Symonds2017-09-22
Too many players, no marshals to speed slow players

Brian Smith2017-09-20
Greens were in a pretty awful condition and rest of the course not that great.

Neil Brady2017-09-18
Nice course, well presented. Only issue on the day was having to wait over and hour for our transfer home and call them a few times.

Trevor Kerr2017-09-12
Nice layout although some of the party thought the course had too many dog legs. Greens were in average condition

Keith Walker2017-07-12
Friendly helpful staff

Simon Bussell2017-05-14
Very good and the greens were in great shape.

Jean Harings2017-05-05
nice course

Thomas Roberts2017-05-03
Had a very enjoyable day, very well organised and I am looking forward to applying for my membership and playing in the coming weeks!

Katharina Cugliari2017-04-19
Nice looking course with some long par 5's. Good shape and good to walk as it is not too long.

Ian Chance2017-04-19
Really good challenging golf course with most of the greens being elevated but fairly receptive. Not for high handicap players as it is tight in places and accuracy is required.

Owen Joubert2017-04-04
Great course, some very short holes, but overall a good challenge.

Ronnie McGrath2017-03-31
Park land Course didn't enjoy. Can play this type of course at home

Denis Duff2017-03-27

Christine Hopkins 2017-03-17
Course in good condition. Play went well, no hold ups

Paul Fitzsimmons2017-03-02
Good test of golf and different to Gramacho and Vale da Pinta in terms of playing from the trees! Would have been good of the course to advise golfers of the poisonous caterpillars before play!

Hilary Minto2017-02-02
A very very busy course that did not seem to have a Marshall monitoring the slow play. We had a tee time of 2.15 and would not have finished before dark. However we walked off after 6 holes as there was a huge queue in front of us for the nest tee.

Susan Crawford2016-11-13
Course in very good condition.

Robert Blackett2016-10-15
My least favourite of the four, very small greens but enjoyable all the same. Staff were friendly

I really liked Altos golf course and found it a fair challenge and in good condition, however some members of our group struggled with the course and found it difficult.

Cheryl Myles2016-09-17
Easy to find. Course in good condition and enjoyable to play.

Rosemary Dobson2016-06-01
Enjoyed game. Very slow play - took almost 5 hours. We arrived early for our booked tee time of 10.21am, however on arrival we were told by the starter our tee time was 10.48am. We did actually get out at 10.30am because we were a two ball and would have been sandwiched between two four balls. Course condition good.

Jim Redmond2016-05-28
Friendly, helpful staff and had no difficulty with anything with regards to the golf. I though the cost for this course to be a bit high. Will not be likely to play it again.

Derek Shortall2016-05-23

Michaelis, Ulrich2016-05-11
Well organized and flexible. Enjoyed !

Timo Taipalus2016-01-21

Daniele Pierrat2016-01-16
so so

Dominik L. Zuhorn 2016-01-11
Golfplatz sehr schön und gepflegt, schwierige, leicht zu unterschätzende Grüns

Susan crawford2015-11-08
Only down side is the cost of the buggies. Very expensive and as we were playing 5 rounds in a row we needed to hire every day. Added 225€ to our week!

Neil Brady2015-10-24
Rained heavily all day and we had to stop after 7 holes as the course was unplayable, course should have been closed but wasn't. After much discussion, they did give us vouchers for buggies the next day which was positive at least.

Lynne Grant2015-10-15
Good condition enjoyed our round although it was very slow. 5 hour round.
