A Detailed Alamos Golf Course Review For Tourists
The Alamos is one of the two courses that are part of the Morgado do Reguengo Resort. Its sister course – Morgado Golf and Alamos are situated in the quiet countryside just to the north of Portimao. The course sits pretty on a gorgeous landscape surrounded by vineyards and the majestic Monchique Mountains. An orange grove and two lakes add variety to a largely greenish landscape.
The beautiful terrain is well complemented by the accommodation features the resort offers to its guests. Spacious rooms, warm and friendly staff and a whole range of luxury features make the Morgado do Reguengo Resort a difficult choice to ignore. Those who love fast cars, need only to drive for five minutes to reach the Algarve International F1 Racetrack. Anyway, most tourists come to Portimao, Algarve, to play golf, so let’s look at the features of the Alamos Golf Course.
A Challenging Course
The ticket to success at the Alamos is good knowledge of what the course has to offer. Unlike its sister course, the Alamos is shorter, yet more challenging. No golf tourist wants two similar playing courses lay side by side. So, tourists who have previously played at the Morgado Course will find the Alamos offers a welcome change.
Characteristic Features of the Course
The main characteristic elements that are too well noticeable to the players are the irregular fairways and large greens. Most of the fairways at the course are bordered by native trees and the greens are elevated at some of the holes. Another distinguishing feature of this course is the deep bunkers, fewer than the Morgado Course, but deeper and better strategically placed. If you think you’ll just breeze through the holes without much effort, then you’re wrong. Before you get the ball to the green you’ll have to negotiate many hurdles that include bunkers, water hazards, roughs, and trees.
The Alamos is 18-hole, par-71 course that’s slightly smaller than its sister. Its total length is around 5710meters from the white marker, 5105meters from the yellow marker, and 4348meters from the red marker. The architect of the course is European Golf Design and it was opened to the public in 2006.
The Alamos Course has a well-stocked pro shop and a spacious clubhouse to relax and enjoy the game from the lounge. The course provides excellent practice facilities in the form of two putting greens, two chipping green, and two driving range tees. Expert pro teachers offer golf lessons to individual and group tourists at the course.
