Palmares golf course highlights itself in the Algarve coast because of its prime location, facing the incredible blue scenario of the ocean. A Perfect contrast with the green of this unique 27-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II, which the links holes along the beach and the great views are the highlighting points.
The New 27 Holes Palmares Golf Course designed by Trent Jones Jr reopened mid 2010 and already Golf World magazine, has recently published its ‘top 100 in Europe’ list - and Onyria Palmares is ranked 26th in Continental Europe.
Was very disappointed if I’m honest, played course many times and has always been a magnificent experience with the views and the layout of the course but unfortunately the greens were disgraceful ???? I was actually going to email course to see if I could get a refund or voucher or discount for a further visit

Unbelievably bad condition
We played the courses Alvor and Lagos today. Both courses are not in a good condition. The greens are bad. We had two flights in front, who were very, very slowly and the marshal did nothing to fasten the game flow. The design of the courses is nice.
Très mauvais Green. -**- Very bad Green.

Great service at reception desk and in the course. 50% discount on buggy’s because of draught damage. Course is nice to play but in severe damaged state.
Probably our favourite course in Western Algarve, great lay out with lovely views. Sadly this year, let down by sub standard greens which they are blaming in lack of water, but greens are missing sections of green which is a major disappointment. Need to be lowering their base cost when in that state and not just reducing costs of buggies
Though the staff were very pleasant I'm afraid the course was in very poor condition - especially the greens and tees. We would not have booked this course if we knew it's condition.
Golf course was in very poor condition, weeds in greens with ball patches. Tee boxes no upkeep. Other courses in the area were far better than this.
Course was in dreadful condition and frankly shouldn’t have been open when we played. Very disappointed as this was our top rated course. Would love to visit when they resolve the issues. More effort has gone into the development and not golf course.
Played today the Alvor + Lagos Course, which are really well designed Courses, despite the Fairways were quite dry and the Greens also not in the best conditions.
Greens are currently not appealing at all (mostly on Alvor and Lagos) but actually not so bad. Course is really dry. Lagos is my favorite loop. Praia could be a great one too but the design is unfortunately pretty blend imho. While the clubhouse is beautiful, it's a bit of a mess to get access by cab/Uber. The place has cleary some great potential but need some improvement.
Nice layout - played the Alvor and Lagos 9s - Praia nines looked good to - very links. Greens rolled ok (wish people would repair their pitch marks ????), tee boxes very neat and tidy, fairways and around a bit brown but it’s been warm and dry here so no shock there. Buggy at €50 is crazy steep - yes it’s comfortable but no GPS or drinks box.
*Undulated - Gradual sloping fairways.
*Mixt Course - Mostly Parkland, and Praia Loop offers 6 holes of pure links
*Buggy Recommended - Yes
*Signature Hole - 14th
*Water hazards - Only two holes. 3rd Hole Par 3, and 6th par 5 at Lagos loop
*Exposed - Strenght and directions of wind very important for club selection
*Comments - Nice mixture of holes, great views over Alvor bay .
