Morgado Golf Course is among the newest additions to the Algarve’s impressive golfing portfolio, having opened for business in 2003. The course is located just North of Portimao and combines Mountain views with mature Portuguese countryside.
Surrounded by Nature, farming fields, in the typical of the Algarvian Barrocal, ensconced between the hilly interior and the coast, graced with partridges and rabbits, is Morgado golf course. Between Portimão and Monchique, in one of the beautiful and largely unknown valleys of the Algarvian hinterland, this course is a challenge both for those taking their first steps in golf as for more experienced players seeking to test or improve their technique.
With 18 holes, this is a more open and easier course, with the features of a links course – with flat fairways and bunkers of Scottish inspiration – but, instead of being along the seaside as the traditional links, it’s placed inside parkland.
The card presents a par of 73 strokes, although the length of the round is attenuated by the generous width of the fairways. However, the less accomplished strokes can be penalised by any one of the many bunkers distributed over the course.
