Boavista Golf Course offers superb facilities in a uniquely sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere and is already attracting people from all over the world. The golf course design, by Howard Swan MSc, past president of The European Institute of Golf Course Architects, aimed to create a golf course as if it has always been there, preserving, integrating and harmonising with the area's natural terrain. With two distinctive sections, boavista golf course offers a variety of holes commencing with the welcoming first hole, bordered by beautiful sub-tropical landscaping leading to harmoniously designed properties. The signature hole on the outward nine is set against a glorious backdrop of the Atlantic ocean with exhilarating panoramic views extending from Praia da Luz round to with the hills at Monchique creating a spectacular backdrop.
Very friendly staff they really take care of their customers both at the reception and caddie masters. The course was well maintained, fast greens overall a challenging course.

A good challenge with some really tricky holes worth playing if you are not in to much of rush as it takes between 4.5 to 5 hours to play. This I believe is a result of the buggy restriction in place by the course where buggies have to leave the fairway a good distance from the greens resulting in golfers having to walk long distances to play there shot.
A lovely golf course, in great condition with the greens lively but true. Great bar staff at Boavista, making everybody feel most welcome
This is an 'old favourite with our group was looking a little tired especially the tee box areas and some of the greens were quite patchy, but a good course for average club players with one or two challenging holes still
Course in really good condition. Very friendly staff throughout the resort but especially in the bar & restaurant
We thoroughly enjoyed playing Boavista, although two holes have long carries which some ladies or high handicappers may struggle with. The course was in excellent condition, and a buggy is fairly essential as it is quite a long course.
Played with 2 FRENCH CANADIANS (Québec), enjoyed every minute as they did, Course in very good condition and staff very courteous. The only problem was the "Heat" but we have no control over that.
Great course as always. Great service from tee times also. Amazing company 10/10 to all staff.
Fantastic buggies with Sat Nav. Very playable course for all handicaps.

Very enjoyable game. Course in good condition EXCEPT bunkers. V poor, hardly any sand. Otherwise excellent.
Always love playing here. My favourite course in the algarve. We heard some horror stories about the condition beforehand but they turned out to be wrong. Fantastic course.
Friendly and helpful staff. Started with an amazing breakfast and went on to play an interesting and well maintained course with some slightly daunting holes. Buggies with GPS were great, the only problem being that it limited the buggy to a certain route. If you tried to leave the designated route, the buggy stopped.
Great welcome and loved the course, which was in great condition. The GPS in the carts is very American and whilst works very well, the restrictions of movement causes an issue when/if you are offline - perhaps some more leeway required
This is my home course, and I continue to rate it as the best in the Western Algarve. It provides an excellent and fair challenge to all golfers.

Boavista is still one of our favourties In the Western Algarve, friendly people, well maintained Course, a Marshall who is watching the spead of play. Absolutely a beautifull day, a bit windy but really no complaint from a critical Dutchman. Henk van der Lit
Friendly people; busy during rush hours (as everywhere). Good value for the money (via Teetimes.pt)
Course in good condition, although busy pace of play reasonable 4 1/2 hours.
Course in good shape all over, and even greens were quite fast though they were newly sanded - and not sweeped enough. Great GPS system In buggies - precise and time effecient.
Very enjoyable experience!
William Stoker 2019-01-14
One hour delay in teeing off due to early morning frost no fault of golf club other than that course in good condition and very enjoyable
Very helpful and course in good condition
Good service. Decent golf course. Good inexpensive food and drink. All in all excellent.
Elizabeth Tolster 2018-11-22
Course was in good condition, staff very helpful, clubhouse and facilities excellent. Good value.
Course looking poorer than usual- Some Greens seem diseased and some fairways in poor condition.
Fast and efficient booking in service, good demonstration of GPS on caddy car which was a really helpful facility, Golf course was good really enjoyable although greens were not in such good condition. Overall a very satisfying experience.
Michael Hardman 2018-10-20
Facilities best of courses we played course in reasonably good condition. Well organised golf facility
Excellent course in very good condition.
Nice course staff very helpful
Very good welcome on arrival
Top class course in great condition and staff were very helpful. We had one very small issue we asked for a buggy and they accommodated us but said we should have booked a buggy in advance. I am not sure if this was an option during our booking *** TeeTimes reply: Hello Michael, thanks for your feedback. There are two options for buggies for Boavista golf course on the web site - 2 players plus 1 buggy or just the buggy.
Excellent course and facilities. Very impressed withGPS in buggies. Beautiful scenery. Brilliant value for money.
We all had a good day and enjoyed the golf course and facilities.
Fantastic course and facilities but caught it on a bad day this time. 3 ball in front of us included a lady whose first time it was on a golf course! Not sure how that's allowed. Held everything up and unfortunately a waste of over 5 hours and money on this occasion. Usually very good though and really a very nice course but will think it little longer when including this course next time.
Great condition greens all very similar,
Mostly to the usual high standard. There was a problem with the drinks cart not being in usual place and missing is out on later round which meant it was necessary to play half of the course with no water on a hot day. Also, Boavista had a different tee time for me than advised by tee times.pt. Fortunately I arrived early and so this did not result in a problem.
Lovely course, challenging par 3s
Good and efficient service as usual at Boavista.
New GPS in carts. Lack of fresh water throughout the course. Excellent overall experience.
Very Good course for the cost Good food in restaurant
Greens very poor there was no one montering slow play we were held up for 9 hopes I would never play again
Good, challenging cource. Bunkers are very bad, hard sand and a lot of stones
My favourite course around here. Lucky enough to play a few times a year. Staff and course amazing. Can’t fault the quality of service or the course. Suitable for all abilities and no one should be dissatisfied.
Fantastic course, good service
Richard Tarrant 2018-07-11
A great course and great facilities but the course should at least inform people that a large group (20+) of ladies had booked all the slots before our tee time. Not in itself a major issue unless (as was the case) the last four ball has lost two full holes in 30 degree + heat and missing the 15th and 16th holes was the only way of achieving a sub 5 hour round. Of course, waving groups through was not a consideration. If the course is busy Boavista....marshall it! Will be back to Morgado and Alamos next year especially given the increasing number of houses and apartments that will add to the pressure on just one course at Boavista.
Very nice course with good greens. A little hilly and a buggy would be recommended
Always a pleasure at Boavista Where Everything is in good shape and functioning. A fantastic course.
We have had a wonderful golf experience on Boavista. The employees were kind and it was good organized. We don’t like playing between houses. That is the only negatieve comment in this course.
Great course and set up
Excellent holiday golf course.
Boavista met our expectations of a highly enjoyable day's golf. Course condition is very good at the moment.
Good challenging course with some very interesting holes, particularly the par 3’s. The only downside were the bunkers. They look ok but they are empty of sand, so stay clear.
James John Galbraith2018-06-11
Played boavista many times all went well except 4 x 4 balls waiting at the sixth tee lovely course
Very slow round, four and a half hours for a two ball as we were held up on every hole. Why do they pack so many people onto the course? Course itself was in good condition though. Bar staff were very friendly and the food was good.
Always a great course
Ian Green 2018-05-14
The course was generally very good, although a number of the greens were in poor condition. We had breakfast at the course which was excellent, as was the service.
Paul Michael Pheby2018-05-14
An undulating and interesting course, some greens were undergoing treatment and were inconsistent. Par 3 of 230 yards over water and into strong breeze was a brute of a hole ! Mixed fourball in front of us failed to rake any bunkers and only let us ( 2 ball ) through late on in the round . Facilities good,nice beers on tap in clubhouse,service excellent.
Very scruffy bunkers were in terrible condition
The Fairways were a little dry & bare in places with a lot of moss & weeds growing. The greens were ok.
Stewart Binnie-Mckenzie 2018-05-07
Very good but bunkers poor
Thought Boavista was quite scruffy bunkers were poor and course looked like it needed a good tidy up such a shame as it was always one of my favourite courses
Golf course in extremely poor condition. Lacks maintenance. Not a very enjoyable experience. Will not come here again
This is an excellent layout which we have played many times. This year the standard of upkeep on the course was notably poor compared to previous years.
Stuart Armstrong 2018-04-27
We have not played this course for a while but found it in good condition and enjoyed the round. We will always consider it in future years.
Course in good condition. We were unlucky with the very windy conditions!! Excellent service as well.....
Nice golf course & facilities. But it is annoying that the driving range takes so long to repair. This has been going on since October 2017 and is not yet finished.
Played here 10 years ago and was really looking forward to going back, and we weren't disappointed. its a lovely course, and the 17th hole is short but fantastic, along with the excellent par 3s
Graham Poole 2018-03-28
Always a good challenging golf course and very nice surroundings. Club house excellent. Facilities really good but shame the driving range has been out of action for so long.
A very friendly pro shop and clubhouse, matched by the excellent quality of the course. Really enjoyed it and we’ll be back.
Despite some wet and windy weather the course was well presented. Staff very friendly and efficient. Bar facilities good and reasonably priced.
sehr hügelig und lange Wege zwischen den Löchern.,daher ist eigentlich ein Buggy ein muss. Einige spektakuläre Löcher dabei. Gut gepflegt.
For the time of the year quite decent course, the use of a buggy for the yet sprawling facility we would recommend.
First time playing and really enjoyed the course.
Nice course, in good condition we will be back
Se are complete satisfied.
Clubhouse quick and competent service, course in good condition with several holes ofdifferent challenges, very worthwhile to play. It is our favourite course.
Slow play which was not monitored by officials.
Although the course felt a little dry underfoot, it still played very well.
Michael J K Sanders2018-02-01
I’ve never seen the course in such great condition, the greens were superb and the whole presentation of the course, excellent! The restaurant area was also excellent, brighter and cleaner than ever before. The staff were professional and friendly. I’ve played here virtually every year since it opened. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Very enjoyable course in good condition
We enjoyed playing Boavista today. Not too busy and a nice relaxed round.
Beautiful course in great condition. I only found that the holes are far apart which calls for a lot of walking. Plus more blind shots than I would like to see on a course. The par 3’s were very long and challenging. I wouldn’t want to golf it all the time as very hilly.
Nice, challenging course with great accommodations. Happy to see the driving range has reopened.
Consistently good experience over several trips. Way of compiling fours from unrelated bookings works well and improves the experience on the day.
Very Nice course
Henk Van Der Lit2017-11-13
To-day we played Boavista, one of our favourite courses in the Algarve. Windy but all in all a most pleasant day, no negative comment. Regards. Henk van der Lit
Nice golfcourse with posh facilities. Very British. It is not always easy to find your way. An electric trolley is recommended.
our party enjoyed the course, really liked the buggies with course layout etc. We plan to go back.
Very good and friendly
Lovely course always first on my list
Lovely course always first on my list
everything was fine, a little slow at times. my only negative was the tees were a bit sruffy.
In good condition - All enjoyed playing it
A beautiful course with many great holes. The course clubhouse and overall set up at the club the best we have played on our trip
Bovista is a fine course but I would prefer Espiche first and Santo Antonio second, however there were a few exceptional holes the par 5 index 2 springs to mind.
We had a lovely time & we will be back soon. Everything was perfect. Thanks John.
Enjoyed the course very much I last played it in 2007 and it has matured nicely
Nice golf course, a bit short when the tees are pushed forward. Shame that the practice range was closed!
Good condition as usual
Hans Jørgen Ekmann2017-09-23
Fantastic new buggies with GPS
Bit scraggy in some areas greens challenging but true
Good, friendly and efficient service. Always accommodating in putting people together for more enjoyable rounds.
Lovely course and surroundings. Holes 1-17 all have something different about them......Just sort out an undefined 18th. It's pretty blind/bland and with a wind not helping....pretty near impossible for average golfers. Great club house and facilities. Buggies: Interactive distance to greens, trouble, lay ups were great......controlling where you can go and your speed (and sometimes direction) was a frustration if you're a little wayward!!! Will go there again as a first choice in the area.
Always a good test of golf, nice clubhouse, friendly people
No problems again 2 ball following 4 ball but quicker as using Buggies
Really good course and value for money. Brilliant GPS in the buggies.
Enjoyed our game but didn't really like the course. We felt it was very uninteresting. Wouldn't play it again.
Nice course going back next month
Great course and the weather was fantastic. always a challenge and some beautiful parts of the course
great course and great food
No driving range :(
Course was great and staff freindly
Golf course in superb condition. Off course was its normal excellent service. Was voted 1st overall on our Golf Tour by all the golfers
Lovely course, great views, a few unique dramatic holes which we like to return for.
Howard L Verrill2017-02-28
Too hilly for me even with a cart. Greens were a little severe as well.
great views nice course
Boavista was more relaxed and not so crowded as (for example) Gramachio where a 5 hour+ round was common.
HAD A LOVELY DAY.COURSE WAS A GOOD TEST
This course is well worth a visit with some challenging tee shots, New modern clubhouse and bar area
Helen Dunn 2016-10-05
Good course, enjoyed it very much.
Very Good Course well worth a visit.
2nd time playing this course and will be back for more.
All good except for 2 small things We had booked 9.02 tee time but were told very abruptly that we were only off at 9.30 On the course we made a couple of mistakes (only small)about the cart path route and were swooped on by the marshall every time and yet there were 4 players in front (all with power caddies)who made us wait on EVERY shot from the 6th hole onwards and yet the marshall never spoke to them once Only small complaints but you did ask I would play there again
Really hard work
Fantastic course. Best greens we've played in Portugal.
One of our favourites but the bunkers are an absolute disgrace more like a beach track.
Irene Lee Donohoe2016-08-27
Won't play this again - too many blind holes. Buggy a necessity for this one.
Very Good as usual
nice experience friendly staff
This is a very good course, we really enjoyed playing this course and had an excellent time.
Very busy this year far more so than the last few years. Still a great challenge.
Course in very good condition except for bunkers which had not been raked after greens had been watered with result sand was baked hard
Loved it. Good golf course with very friendly staff.
VERY GOOD NO PROBLEMS
The best course I've played in the Western Algarve. Beautifully kept, lovely views, and a fair challenge.
Our favorite. Again and again. it was though annoying that our decently fast playing 4 ball flight was forced by course marshall on a Sunday to let pass four two ball flights. Very unusual and disturbing. However, all in all we still enjoyed this marvellouse couse.
Excellent as always.
Challenging layout which resulted in slow play particularly on the front nine. Would return to play the course again.
Love this course. Never too busy.
Up to it's normal good standard
Course in very good condition. Greens excellent.
Very good experience. The greens were in very good condition.
nice course, in good condition
A good test of skill whilst giving us the benefit of a well cared for course
Gerry Kinane 2015-10-30
The course became unplayable due to the weather and we had to abandon the game
Course in excellent condition
A few to many blind shots needs more marker posts on the blind shots.
good as always
Good Site :)
