Alamos Golf Course is a beautiful par 71 course, located with its sister course Morgado in its own vast area of rolling hilly countryside and fertile farmland, between Portimão and the lovely mountain town of Monchique. It is definitely one of the most enjoyable golf courses in the Algarve with several stunning views over the surrounding landscape .
The course provides a very pleasant game of golf. It offers wide, hilly greens, with a variety of sometimes very open and sometimes tight fairways to test driving ability! It is surrounded by a forest filled with the local flora, orchids and even a vineyard!
For naturalists Alamos Golf Course is a feast of birdlife to look out for and you may even find traces of one of the region’s most famous inhabitants, the wild boar.
As ever, the Chez Carlos Algarve Golf Society had a mixture of regular visitors and new faces who all professed to having had an enjoyable game. This was reflected in the scoring which was generally good.
Nearest the Pin at the very pleasant short 9th Hole was Ian Humphries (12), who also finished in 2nd place in the Men’s competition with 36 Points ahead of a number of players on 33 points. The winner though, was Tracey McCall (8) with 37 Points on the day.
Best Lady was Pam Williams (26) with 31 Points.
With Del’s kitchen closed as Joao has a short holiday, we returned to Chez Carlos where Felipe again provided nibbles enjoyed by all with an accompanying drink – or 2, or 3…..
Next week, Millennium Golf Course.
Thank you Tee Times T.O.
