We have just spent an interesting 4 days on the Algarve and managed to spend time staying at Penina Golf hotel and playing the Championship course find more. The hotel is still extremely popular (if not a little old fashioned) and the golf course in great condition. We visited the Dona Filipa 5 star hotel in Vale de Lobo which is in the process of refurbishment and the new rooms, reservation area and bars look a lot more modern. Finally we went to the NAU Morgado complex with hotel and 2 golf courses (Alamos & Morgado) and stayed for a couple of nights. This complex is really geared up for golf groups with the 2 courses and fantastic practice facilities. We played Alamos (pictured) and it was an interesting course. The Algarve still offers a great selection of golf with some excellent value.
