Posted by: Sumaira

on May 31, 2023

You can often grab a great deal playing golf in the Algarve with a twilight green fee. You get to play the same course for a substantial discount when teeing off in the afternoon. We’ve compiled a list of all Algarve golf courses offering twilight green fees.  So take a look and grab yourself a discounted tee time. 

Vale do Lobo Royal

Twilight Green Fee: €60 in low season and €80 in high season

High Season Green Fee: €135

When: After 15:30

When anyone mentions the Royal Course at Vale do Lobo, you’ll inevitably hear about the 16th, a stunning par-3 that plays over a ravine along the cliff-face. Often cited as the most photographed hole in Portugal. It’s one you’ll want to play again and again. Tee off after 15:30 and you’ll get a 40% discount on the regular green fee with their twilight rate.

Vale do Lobo Ocean

Twilight Green Fee: €60 in low season €80 in high season

High Season Green Fee: €135

When: After 15:30

The Ocean Course is the Royal Course’s sibling. While you don’t get to play the infamous 16th hole, there are plenty of holes that play down to the ocean, hence the name. The 15th plays right alongside the beach and is one that we particularly like. Twilight green fees offer a 40% discount when teeing off after 15:30 in the high season. 

Vale da Pinta

Twilight Green Fee: €40

High Season Green Fee: €102

When: After 15:30

You’ll find Vale da Pinta just outside Carvoeiro. There are two golf courses on the complex, Gramacho being the other. Opened in 1992, this championship course requires precision on many of the holes to score well. We’re a fan of the 13th, 592-yard par-5 that winds its way through a rather beautiful valley. Tee off after 15:30 and you can save 60% on the regular green fee with their twilight rate.

Quinta de Cima

Twilight Green Fee: €64 (low season) - €79 (high season)

High Season Green Fee: €120

When: After 14:30

Located east of the Algarve near Tavira, Quinta de Cima is situated in the middle of the Ria de Formosa National Park. As a result, you’ll get unspoiled beauty, a tranquil setting and no significant developments of hotels and villas. The 16th is the standout hole here, a par-5 with a large lake awaits to the right of the green. Your approach shot must be kept left of the flagstick to avoid it. Tee off after 14:30 and you’ll save 34% on your green fee.

Quinta da Ria

Twilight Green Fee: €64 (low season) - €79 (high season)

High Season Green Fee: €120

When: After 14:30

Quinta da Ria is on the same complex as Quinta de Cima and offers a similar, peaceful experience. As you plot your way around, take in the natural scenery and wild vegetation, including thousands of ancient olive and carob trees and the five serene lakes that irrigate both golf courses. Our pick of holes is the 17th. Water plays all along the right to a tight green. Accuracy is vital to keep your ball out of the water. Twilight green fees after 14:30 represent a 34% saving over the regular price.

Pinheiros Altos

Twilight Green Fee: €75

High Season Green Fee: €106

When: After 15:00

Set in the heart of Quinta do Lago, Pinheiros Altos has 27 holes broken down into three loops of nine. Of the three loops, the Corks and Olives loops are our favourite, particularly the eighth hole on the Olives where golfers need to play to a rather impressive island green. Teeing off after 15:00 will see golfers save 31% off the regular green fees with their twilight rate. 

Vila Sol

Twilight Green Fee: €50

High Season Green Fee: €121

When: After 15:30

Vila Sol is the only golf course in Vilamoura that isn’t owned by the Dom Pedro Group and forms part of the Vila Sol Golf Resort. Opened in 2000, with a further nine holes added in 2009, there are plenty of challenging holes at Vila Sol to test even the most accomplished golfer. We especially like the 7th with a long sloping green. 3-putts are not unheard of here. Tee off after 15:30 and save yourself 57% on the standard green fee.  

Gramacho

Twilight Green Fee: €40

High Season Green Fee: €102

When: After 15:30

Gramacho is the second golf course at the Vale da Pinta Resort. Gramacho is an unusual course with two pin positions and tee boxes per hole. You can play the course on two separate days and have a completely different experience. Play after 15:30 and the twilight green fee is 60% cheaper than the standard rate. 

Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course

Twilight Green Fee: €68

High Season Green Fee: €106

When: After 15:30

The Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course at the Penina Resort holds the crown as the oldest golf course in the Algarve. Opened in 1966 on land that was originally used as rice paddy fields, there are now over half a million trees and scrubs to navigate around. We particularly like the 13th Par-3, this tricky slope back towards the water measures 202 yards off the whites, leave it short and you’re in the water. The Championship Course’s twilight green fee is 35% cheaper if you tee off after 15:30

Palmares

Twilight Green Fee: €92

High Season Green Fee: €116

When: After 15:30 on the following dates: (1st Dec to 31st Mar) • (17th Apr to 31st May) • (1st Jul to 31st Oct) and include buggy hire.

Palmares Golf Course offers 27 holes based on three loops of nine. There’s a real mixture of contrasting types of holes here. The Alvor loop offers a parkland style, while the Lagos loop integrates several lakes to provide intricate water hazards. It also introduces a couple of links holes, which develop further on the Praia loop, which plays along the beach. Guests can play the three combinations on any given day providing great variation. Play after 15:30 and you’ll save 20% with their twilight rate.

Monte Rei

Twilight Green Fee: €170

High Season Green Fee: €220

When: After 15:00

Monte Rei is often featured as the best golf course in Portugal and for good reason. This Jack Nicklaus signature course near Tavira offers unparalleled levels of customer service combined with one of the most elegant golf courses in the region. It’s a challenging track and not the cheapest to play, but boy is it worth every euro. We especially like the 13th at Monte Rei, a par-4 that plays down a large canyon, with a beautiful lake in the background. Twilight green fees start at €170 instead of €220 representing a 22% saving if you tee off after 15:00

Espiche

Twilight Green Fee: €37

High Season Green Fee: €79

When: After 15:00

We have a real soft spot for Espiche Golf Course and consider it one of the Algarve’s hidden gems. Located just outside Lagos, Espiche is one of the most manicured golf courses in the region. Its commitment to ecological preservation is also a big plus. Green fees are already reasonable at Espiche, costing €79 in the high season, but play after 15:00 and you can save an impressive 42%.

Victoria

Twilight Green Fee: €83

High Season Green Fee: €194

When: After 15:00

Victoria Golf Course is Dom Pedro’s flagship golf course in Vilamoura, designed by Arnold Palmer. It’s hosted the Portugal Masters every year since 2007 and this should give you an idea of the standard. We especially like the 17th, selected by Arnold Palmer as the signature hole. With water down the left and a couple of dramatic waterfalls, its one you’ll want to revisit again and again. Twilight green fees at Victoria are €83 if you tee off after 15:00, representing a 56% saving on the high season rate.

Pinhal

Twilight Green Fee: €54 (low season) - €84 (high season)

High Season Green Fee: €135

When: After 15:00

Pinhal Golf Course in Vilamoura offers plenty of variety. There are long holes, short holes, left and right doglegs, you name it, it has it. We recommend a buggy for this one as there can be a walk between tee boxes. If you want to play in the high season green fees cost €135, but you can reduce that with their twilight rate for €84 representing a 37% saving.

The Old Course

Twilight Green Fee: €84

High Season Green Fee: €194

When: After 15:00

The Old Course as the name suggests is the oldest golf course in Vilamoura and a firm favourite with many who frequent the town regularly. We love the Old Course, for its old pine trees and the way it blends into its natural surroundings. The eighth hole is a particular delight, from the Medal tee, this hole plays over 400 metres and features a gradual decline to a fairway bunker, a gentle dogleg right, and a rise to a narrow green that is well protected by trees on all sides. Play after 15:00 and you can save 56% on the high season green fee.

Millennium

Twilight Green Fee: €54 (low season) - €84 (high season)

High Season Green Fee: €135

When: After 15:00

Millennium Golf Course is Dom Pedro’s newest golf course in Vilamoura, constructed at the turn of the century. It shares a clubhouse with Laguna, from which 9 holes were taken to create this standalone 18-hole track. Green fees are €135 in the high season, but you can save nearly 38% when teeing off after 15:00 with their twilight rate.

Laguna

Twilight Green Fee: €54 (low season) - €84 (high season)

High Season Green Fee: €135

When: After 15:00

Laguna is one of six golf courses in Vilamoura and the big brother to Millennium. Both courses are on the same site and provide the opportunity to play both if you’re staying in the area for a few days. Laguna features more water hazards than Millennium. Laguna is perfect for higher handicappers and large groups. It’s not the most challenging, but there’s enough here to keep a broad spectrum of golfers entertained. Twilight green fees at Laguna are €84 in the high season representing a 38% saving.

Castro Marim

Twilight Green Fee: €51 (low season) - €64 (high season)

High Season Green Fee: €85

When: After 15:00

If you’re booking a golf holiday in Tavira, Castro Marim is well worth visiting. Located on the border with Spain, there are 27 holes set around three loops of nine at Castro Marim, the Atlantic, Grouse and Guadiana providing a variety of challenging holes. Twilight green fees are €64 in the high season and can be claimed when teeing off after 15:00.

Benamor

Twilight Green Fee: €47 (low season only)

High Season Green Fee: €86

When: After 13:04

Benamor is situated close to the town of Tavira. As you navigate the course, you’ll be treated to stunning views of the Serra do Caldeirao mountains to the North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South. We like the par-four 6th, with its downhill play and a green that’s both tricky and fast. A par on this hole should be celebrated as a job well done. Twilight green fees are only available in the low season and cost just €47.

O’Connor Junior

Twilight Green Fee: €70 (low season only)

High Season Green Fee: €135

When: After 15:30

The O'Connor Junior Course is one of three golf courses at the Amendoeira Resort. Of the full 18-hole layouts O’Connor is probably the easiest, yet provides a stiff enough test. There’s plenty of water built into the layout to ensure your shot placement is key. We like the 18th, playing alongside a river with a gentle climb before finishing under the gaze of the clubhouse. Twilight rates are available during the low season only and cost €70 per round.

Faldo Course

Twilight Green Fee: €70 (low season only)

High Season Green Fee: €135

When: After 15:30

The Faldo Course at Amendoeira is quite possibly the toughest golf course in the Algarve. There are five tee positions to choose from and to make the most of your round, you’ll want to choose the one that best suits your ability. Play too far back and you’ll find it more frustrating than fun. That said, The Faldo Course is superbly maintained and well worth a visit if you’re in the area. Twilight green fees are available during the low season only and cost €70. 

Alto

Twilight Green Fee: €30 (low season only)

High Season Green Fee: €84

When: After 15:30

You'll find Alto located in Portimao, another golf course designed by the legendary Sir Henry Cotton. Alto’s 16th hole is one of Europe's longest par 5 holes, measuring over 600 yards and given the rather appropriate nickname of  “O Gigante”. Twilight green fees are available during the low season only and available after 15:30 costing just €30.

Ombria

Twilight Green Fee: €83

High Season Green Fee: €159

When: after 13:00 in November and after 14:30 from March to June, as well as September to November.

Ombria is the latest Algarve golf course just a few kilometres north of Loulé. Opened in 2023, Ombria offers stunning scenery with an ecological mindset, having been awarded the much coveted GEO Foundation certification. Ombria isn’t particularly long, instead, you’ll need to rely on accuracy over brute force to score low. A twilight rate of€83 represents a 48% discount from the full high-season green fee.
