Pinheiros Altos

Pinheiros Altos Golf Course located within the well-known Quinta do Lago estate, within the golfing world it is known as providing a mental challenge due to well placed hazards. Bordering the 18,300 hectares of Natural Park of Ria Formosa which provides a habitat for many species of birds and has much interesting vegetation.|Pinheiros Altos is a combination of 27 holes composed by three groups of 9 holes named Oliveiras (Olives), Pinheiros (Pines) and Sobreiros (Corks), respectively. This highly original and distinctive course possesses completely opposing characteristics. The original 18-hole course of Pinheiros Altos was well-known for its contrasting nines. While the first 9-hole are over rolling sandy undergrowth with gentle pine trees, the shorter second 9-hole runs through hills dotted with lakes that present the main obstacle for the golfers on this course.

Most enjoyable round of golf I have played at Pinheiros to date. Greens in decent shape although the state of some tee boxes could be improved. Always a pleasure to play Olives then the Pines and miss out on the Corks. Great that you can hit the (grass) range beforehand free of charge. Excellent value for money breakfast (12 EUR for full english, coffee and OJ) and a beautiful terrace to soak up the afternoon sun. Pinheiros might just have made it back onto the rota for the 2020 Algarve tour.

michael charlton2019-06-28
very smooth booking transaction. course staff very helpful and most of all great value for money. golf fee buggy included and free range balls

jonathan thomson2019-06-15
Played olives and corks greens were excellent. Fairways not as good. Course was great fun and good challenge. Buggies no GPS or water provided. Driving range is best in area hitting off grass

Excellent, replay helpful and very patient. Transfers were spot on as well.

Gina Leong2019-04-09
Challenging course. Nice and quiet. Lots of mosquitos and bugs, so recommend you take mosquito repellent. Pines course at Altos is quite hilly, so if you don’t like walking up hills, you could consider getting a buggy.

Michael Smythe2019-04-06
Golf would have been better if I avoided more trees got to keep straight . A good test of golf

Phil Sharpe2018-05-30
Played the Olives & Pines courses, loved them. First time we’ve played Pinheiros Altos and we will return. Course and greens in great nick, staff very friendly and lunch menu varied and good quality

Excellent, the golf course was amazingly quiet so had a most enjoyable round

Daniel Mardell2018-05-10
Great course and really friendly staff - highly recomended

Mr Tom Woodhouse2018-03-10
Olives closed due to wet weather so moved to pines and corks, which are actually my preferred combination. Great conditioning. PA has always been consistently good and the range nearby makes it easy to prepare pre round. Nice lunch too, and very reasonably priced.

Doug Smith2017-07-22
A hot day with a stiff breeze. We played the 2 best 9's, Olives and Pines. The course was in fine condition with fast fairways and moderate greens. The bunkers were a bit crusty on top due to the hot weather, but in the main played well. A nice course in a great setting.

Simon Richardson2019-12-03
Played Olives and Pines. Olives course could have been in better condition: 1 green was diseased, 2 greens had extensive amount of Goose droppings that could have been cleared, long par 5 fairway had some standing water. Pines was a lovely 9 holes, 1 tee being upgraded but rest of course a real pleasure to play. Clubhouse was magnificent with very friendly and helpful staff.

David Bowles2019-11-27
Great challenges for all golfers whatever ability they possess. Greens accessible and today a test of Patience and self control was required due to weather conditions. However scoring conditions were fair. A very. Enjoyable. Experience.

Ewa Helldin2019-11-27
Course: Nice lay-out but placement on the fairway was needed. Greens were good even if they had been recently dressed with sand. Company: As always, Chez Carlos Golf Society brings nice people together!

Henry Nash2019-11-11
good all round experience. course in good condition

Chris Lennox2019-11-09
Well organised tournament as usual. Course in very good condition.

Angelo Zanchi2019-11-09
Good course good maintenance efficient staff

Robert Pettit2019-11-02
Lovely course. Redicously busy. We had to change the 9 holes we played. So SLOW. Not the best experience.

Joe Annett2019-10-31

Andy Robinson2019-10-30
Well organised event. Course was in very good condition and the pace of play excellent

Neil Wendel-Jones2019-10-13
Excellent friendly service, course in great condition, just one negative which is not restricted to Pinheiros Altos, not being allowed to take buggies on to par 3 holes is very unfair on disabled golfers who physically can’t walk more than a few yards!

Good course layout but could be in better condition

David Bowles2019-10-10
Such an enjoyable event. Yes the course can be a little tricky but fair.

Paul Dawson2019-09-27
Friendly helpful staff who made the experience that much better . The Pines and the Cork , in my opinion were the better two nines , but the Olives was not far behind .

Robert Webb2019-09-15
good course.good condition. some greens were poor. Some tees long way from previous green. Good company-I was rubbish but overall a course I would play again. Driving range excellent

Nigel Lander2019-09-14
Alway fun playing PA, it’s a fair test with some great long par 4 and a couple of impossible par 5 ‘S . But if you are hitting the ball well there are plenty of places to attack. And the greens are true and quick. It never disappoints.

Carol Lane2019-09-13
Club house and facilities superb - great free use of driving range. Frustrating not to know in advance which course (2 nine combination) you’re playing. Buggies at 50 Euros a rip off with no waters or ice included. Staff quite stand offish

Graham Wilkinson 2019-09-01
Super venue with great facilities Staff were very friendly and helpful Coarse was in great order Can’t wait to go back again

Ian Hartis2019-07-28
Excellent course

Ingrid van Loenhout2019-07-07
First a warm welcome. Then what a stunning course. Overwhelming views and challenging greens. The fairways beautifully kept. We played “Corks” first. Then “Olives”. We defenitely prefered “Corks”

Duncan Stark2019-07-05
Some fairways and tees where rough in spots greens excellent. If the green fees where less then more rounds would be played.

Susan Morris2019-06-21
We had a very enjoyable game. Some of the fairways were a little bare but we played preferred lies so this didn't affect play.

Carole Drury2019-06-20
Good courses and not too busy - easily on a par with the more expensive Quinta courses

Carlos Cardoso2019-06-17
All went as plan.

John Cofield2019-06-12
Another course in great condition especially the greens and a good mix of holes, tree lined and water holes. Great value for money. Just spoilt a little by an over zealous marshall on the 2nd hole who could be perceived as rude.

Peter Tholen2019-06-02
Good course, poorly signed on course

Nigel Gell2019-05-28
Good game, course not in good condition.

Stewart Officer2019-05-26
A good experience with a welcome introduction by Ron, which was much appreciated and a social meeting with other players afterwards.

Dean goodchild2019-05-21
Fantastic very easy booking and what a beautiful good coarse all went very well thanks v much I’ll be looking at playing Thursday so will be in touch . Dean

Cummins Martina2019-05-21
Very enjoyable. Good course

Darren Clarke2019-04-29
Superb course

Steven Burton2019-04-26
We played the Corks course as our front 9 and were very disappointed with the number of unrepaired pitch marks. Probably the worst I've ever seen on any course. However it did not detract from a good course overall.

Robin Seabrook2019-04-06
Course in good condition, greens very good and quite quick. Day was made very difficult due to strong wind and occaisional showers.

Heather Ward2019-03-23
Anothe fun day with great company, thank you so much ????????

Philip Freshwater2019-02-27
Very friendly staff and good quality golf course

David Askew 2019-02-17
Had not played there for about 15 years ... liked the course . Condition a bit mixed some the fairways were very poor but the greens were superb better than most of the others we have played between November and now ... penina and Vila sol only ones better ...

Tony Williams2019-02-12
We enjoyed Pineros Altus. Would rate it same as Vilamoura Laguna and slightly better than Pinhal and Millenium

Gillian Travis2018-11-22
Played Olives & Pines, 2 very contrasting 9s. Unfortunately Olives was very wet, in addition to the water hazards & the greens had been top-dressed & were very slow. Pines was much drier & greens lovely. Buggy was limited to the paths (not even a 90 degree rule. This is not good for players with medical problems who cannot walk 18 holes......…! We understand that wet conditions can prevail & they have to look after the course but they really should reduce the price of the buggy &/or the course fee to help compensate for poor course quality.

Jim Houlihan2018-10-23
This course is a 27 hole complex but realistically there is only enough room for 18 holes. Therefore itis tricked up,with out of bounds on most holes and trees blocking the entrance to the middle of greens. The greens were'nt in great condition the day we played as they were sandy and slow. Overall I would not recommend this course. €102 green and €50 for a buggy I have played better municipal golf courses for a fraction of the price.

Paul Hassall2018-09-19
Excellent course , great value for money and very well organised

Michael Walsh2018-09-15
Good course well maintained.

1st class service Buggy was delivered to car really attentive and course played lovely

Mr IAN Hartis2018-07-26
Excellent course challenging in parts

mark wakefield2018-06-19
Great course & facility

Bob Brown2018-06-01
1st nine on Corks was good condition but not the most interesting of the 3 9s - 2nd 9 on Olives was excellent - always love playing it

Fearghal McEvatt2018-05-31
Olives are only ok , Pines are lovely and also Soleiros . Greens are fair and fairways are fine.

Mike Ford2018-05-14
very good

David Bowles2018-05-13
A solid test for all levels of ability with some interesting choices off the Tee and to the green. Course Tee’s and greens in good testing condition, however fairways need some attention. Overall a very enjoyable experience. Well worth a visit.

Mike Lee 2018-05-08
Beautiful location. Course in good condition, all the players liked it. 50 Euros for a buggy is expensive compared to the Vale Do Lobo resort which is only 30 Euros.

Amazing course. We love it.

Juergen Juchtmann2018-04-30
Beautiful course, but fairways go from bad to worse during play. Not very well cared for! Over all too expensive for the experience. Greens are mostly okay, tees bad

Peter Watson2018-04-17
Very good course but the fairways need some attention in places. We as a group would return to play the course again.

John Powell2018-04-12
Course was in good condition - good experience

SASSARD - MARIE2018-04-11
Very well

Robert Watt2018-03-30
Nice course and I enjoyed playing it. Some fairways are needing time to repair. For the good of the course I think it would be good to mark the bare areas as GUR and ask golfers to play their shot from adjacent grassy areas.

Doug Smith2018-03-10
Considering the inclement weather recently including storm Emma and then Felix, the course was in excellent shape. Some wet patches in the fairways but new grass showing through every where after the recent heavy rain. The bunkers were in excellent condition and showed no sign of the recent storms. Excellent greens, a little slow perhaps. Good course.

Gordon McCrae2018-02-12
Pinheiros Altos is a great course to play, three different nine hole loops that are challenging but shouldn't spoil your fun. Great service from Teetimes, as always. I use them every year and the service has always been brilliant

Doug Smith2018-02-11
3 challenging sets of 9. Playing quick in the dry conditions. Greens quite quick so try and stay below the hole.. easier said than done.

Bill Williams2018-02-01
Course was very good, staff friendly. Free range balls - great idea! BUT - 50 Euros for a buggy !!!!!!!


Bep Van Der Pas2017-12-01
Not an easy nut fair C ourse. A pleasure to play.

Adam marlow 2017-11-11
Nice little course but the Bermuda grass on the tee boxes was tricky! Buggy handler also very impolite but overall a good day.

Doug Smith2017-10-25
A good challenging course. The teeing grounds are undergoing some renovation but otherwise the course is in good condition despite the long hot dry summer.

Westley Macey2017-10-19
Played pines and corks the course was in fabulous condition and deserves credit and a higher rating in the course guides for me some cracking holes incorporating multiple water hazards

John Beckett2017-10-18
Preferred lies and the course was heavily watered making some areas very boggy. The buggy was quite expensive for the basic variety

Noel Moroney2017-10-17
Is it possible to choose which nines you play ie We played Pines and olives this year and next year would like Pines and Corks
Tee Times reply: Dear Noel, unfortunately it isnt possible to choose. The course have a schedule to rotate them and sometimes can change depending on the conditions of each 9. Regards

Neil williamson2017-10-14
Really liked Pinheiros altos, course was in good condition & staff in the pro shop were very friendly & helpful.

Overall a good experience. Course good, would have liked a choice on which course we played but it is the busy season. Was the most expensive buggy hire that we paid over 5 previous rounds and there was no ice in the cooler box!. Planned to have a meal following our game but they had stopped serving when we got back, Teed off at 13.30

Bob Guard2017-10-12
Excellent course and in good condition. Soft in places due to amount of water that had been used but did not detract from the experience. As always - enjoyed playing this course.

Craig Burgoyne2017-09-22
Good course, staff were helpful and there are fabulous facility's, driving range practice putting green and a good 19th hole

Colin McGhie2017-09-20
nice course - quite tight. Didn't appreciate to being told to speed-up our play when there was no one behind us, spoilt our round.

Doug Smith2017-09-09
A really nice course, three nines so depends which 2 nines you play. Olives and Pines consist in the main of the original 18. Olives has the par 3 island green. Great fun. The greens were medium speed but played well. Great practice facilities to start with.

David sattin2017-06-13
Good, very busy

Doug Smith2017-05-31
A good challenge. Never easy but interesting. Some holes are just difficult. But good fun with 3 different 9s to choose from. Give it a go. Great location.

Maurice Rogers2017-05-30

Alan Hennessy2017-05-26
Good golf course, overall golf course is in good condition with the only area needing some work being the fairways which can be quite patchy and bare in places

Andy Robinson2017-05-17
Really challenging course in very good condition. The breeze made it a challenging day, particularly the 8th hole on the ''olives'' course. A par 3 that has a totally island green. Play this and you will experience something like the 17th at Sawgrass! Really well organised day -- as always -- by Doug.

Peter Sandtorv2017-05-09
Nice course but fairways was in relativly poor conditions compared to the other golfcourses in the area

Mark Punter2017-05-03
A relaxing round with not too many crowds, the condition of the course was good and the clubhouse and facilities are of a high standard.

Robin Seabrook2017-04-09
Played on Sat 8 April with Chez Carlos Society, very friendly group as always, course in very good condition, greens putted well, 9's played Olives and Oaks. Water on Olives claimed a couple of balls, will be back to try and make amends.

Ronald Pharoah2017-04-02
Many thanks for arranging an alternative to Vila Sol, to give more of us a chance to play. Pineheiros Altos is one of the best courses on the Algarve. Very challenging, extremely well maintained and component, friendly staff. More of the same please!

David Stubbings2017-03-24
Some fairways on the corks were in very poor condition

M. Douglas Faminow2017-02-28
The course has a nice design. Mid-handicap players that are long, but less than straight, will find it difficult to score well because of the OB that lurks on many holes. Shorter/straight hitters will not be troubled. The fairways seemed to have scant grass, with little cushion, but I suppose that we can chalk that up to the cold winter and poor grass growth. Greens very large and tricky (lots of false slopes)--difficult to read. They were fast and of consistent pace, so quite fair. I would say that the greens were probably the best feature of this course. Roadways for the golf carts were not always good, with some significant unevenness in places. Hopefully these will soon be repaired. Bunkers were fair and good quality, with sufficient sand, well-raked, etc. This is not a good course for walking (for seniors, anyway), so cart rental should be recommended for the over 50 crowd.. In short, I would play the course again but would not consider this a course that I would want to frequently play. Perhaps 2-3 times per year at most.

Hugh Logue2016-12-26
Great day, good company and a fine course.

Howard Lockhart2016-12-01
Welcoming club and in good condition especially after the rain. Played here before and it has improved.

Christine O'Neill2016-11-16
I thought the tee boxes were not up to standard.

Graca Carter2016-10-26
Great course in great conditions.

Derek Thomas2016-10-14
Great, helpful and a good course set up whichever 9holes you play

Richard Hannam2016-10-03
Greens a bit on the soft side resulting in footprint indents and bobbly surface etc

Trevor Hatton 2016-09-27
Reasonable venue and close to the hotel but the course seemed in poor condition overall. It was clearly the ''filler'' course on the tour. Probably wouldn't play it again.

Carlos Ferreira2016-09-25
We play the two nines Olives and Pines, each presenting different characteristics. The Olives , are the old back nine and are more flat, the wind has greater influence and have some holes where the water element come in to play . The eight hole, island par 3, that is between 100mt and 120mt depending on the position of the tee is a good choice for nearest the pin at any competion, and is also the golf course signature hole . Pines the original front nine where 4 new holes have been integrated and as its name indicates presents a more parkland course, plenty of pine trees , elevations , dog legs and also 3 lakes that protect 3 very tempting greens . the 4th a short par 5 , the 5th a long par 4 , stroke 1 and the 6th a par 5 reachable in 2 if you had a good tee shot . Signature hole , again a beautiful Par 3 over a valley to a McKenzie green . A great golf course very demanding and if you suceed to finish with 36 points on stabelford you pobrably have played your best golf .

John Rigg2016-06-25
Excellent course and value for money

Stanley Sokolowski 2016-05-31
Pinheiros Altos buggy paths and many areas require upgrading would not return

Pinheiros Altos is a nice golfcourse - the second nine was strenuous with trolley

Adrian Thorogood 2015-11-02
Tee boxes (like many courses) in really poor condition

Alan Scotter2015-10-28
Helpful staff. Good food and service. Course in very good condition

Adrian Fraser Jones2015-10-26

Toller Platz, toller Service. Spielen wir gerne wieder.

Doug Montgomery 2015-10-23
First time most of us have played Pinheiros Altos and we enjoyed it very much and want to return again.

Derek Thomas2015-10-19

Chez Carlos Golf Society2012-06-04
Located within the Quinta Do Lago estate Pinheiros Altos is one of the finest golf courses in the Algarve and soon to celebrate its twentieth birthday. It was a team competition this week with two scores to count in teams of 3 over the Olives and Pines layout. The course was in great condition with lush green fairways and trademark fast greens. Commenting Dave Reaney (h/cap 13) ‘I’ve never played this course till today and really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to returning and playing the Corks next time’. The Nearest the Pin was as usual the island green hole 8th (Olives) with many balls taking a plunge into the surrounding waters. It’s an entertaining hole to play at any time. Our Society golf competitions in the Algarve are good fun and a great opportunity to meet old and new friends whilst sampling some of the best golf courses in Portugal. Afterwards we returned back to the Chez Carlos Bar & Restaurant and enjoyed impromptu fresh clams which were just purchased from a visiting local fisherman. Cooked in lemon butter accompanied by fresh bread they were delicious.

Chez Carlos Golf Society2012-04-28
It was the turn to play the format of Pinheiros (Pines) and Sobreiros (Corks) with 24 players gathering midday beneath cloudy blue skies on the first tee. There was an ensemble of old and new members and guests playing today many of whose handicaps were mid-teens. The course was in good condition and the trademark fast greens in play even though they had been sanded. It was a calm three holes before the wind made itself felt as we moved into the more exposed part of the course at hole 4. Special mention must go to two members; one making an impressive eagle at the 435mts Par 5 6th hole (Pinheiros) and another a birdie at the 497mts Par 5 8th hole (Sobreiros).

Chez Carlos Golf Society2012-02-22
Located between Quinta Do Lago and San Lorenzo the 27 holes at Pinheiros Altos (High Pines) is a firm favourite with many a golfer in the Algarve and home for many a celebrity and footballer. Today the Society took on the Sobreiros and Oliveiras loops. The fairways were brown but this was only the bermuda grass in its dormant stage in winter. Come the warmth of springtime it will be its usual blaze of green. If there was stimpmeter reading taken on the greens it would have surely read 12 – similar to Troia the other week. Anything topside and you had problems.
