Alto Golf Course Review

Alto Golf Course, located in the charming town of Alvor in the Algarve region of Portugal, is a golfer’s paradise. Designed by the renowned Sir Henry Cotton and completed by Peter Dobereiner after his death. Alto Golf Course is a true test of skill and precision.

One of the standout features of the course is the 16th hole, which is one of the longest par 5 holes in Europe, measuring over 600 yards and given the rather appropriate nickname of  “O Gigante”, The hole presents a true test of a golfer’s ability to strategise and execute their shots.

The front 9 of the course offers stunning views over Lagos Bay, providing a picturesque backdrop for your round of golf. The back 9, however, is set over undulating terrain, providing a more challenging experience for golfers. The course is designed to be suitable for golfers of all skill levels, with a mix of long and short holes, as well as a variety of hazards to keep you on your toes.

Beyond the golf, Alto Golf Course offers a excellent practice facility and a clubhouse with superb amenities. The clubhouse provides a great place to relax after your round, with a restaurant and bar, as well as a pro shop for all your golfing needs.

If you’re looking for a challenging yet enjoyable round of golf in a beautiful setting, then Alto Golf Course in Alvor, Algarve is the place for you. Don’t miss the opportunity to play on a course designed by the legendary Sir Henry Cotton and enjoy the spectacular views over Lagos Bay.
