The Alto Golf & Country Club is situated in a stunning private community in the Western Algarve, and was the last course to be designed by the legendary Sir Henry Cotton.
The winding fairways and elevated greens are typical of Cotton's architectural philosophy, and ensure that there is a stern challenge for the low handicap players, whilst remaining fair for the average golfer. Set across two rolling hills, visitors will enjoy beautiful views of the Lagos Bay.
The course is just shy of 7,000 yards, but that is mostly thanks to the monstrous 16th, which measures 661 yards and has appropriately been dubbed, ‘Gigante'.
Set amongst the pine, fig, almond and carob trees, and flanked by beautiful villas, Alto is a delightful place for a round of golf during your golf holiday in the Western Algarve.

Having been here a few times over the last 5 years it has definitely deteriorated. Greens are in poor condition and very patchy. The saving grace is the lovely club house.
Again buggies an issue but finally came good
This course favours the straight hitter with narrow fairways lined on both sides with tall trees all too keen to block your next shot to the green if you go off the fairway.
This is the most difficult of the Pestana courses and I have played all of them over the past couple of years. It's sometimes viewed as the poor relation compared to Pinta, Gramacho and Silves, but it's a lovely parkland course with some very challenging holes. Try playing double dog leg par 4's. This is a course for accuracy, rather than distance. We played 3 stableford over 3 course and this was the lowest scoring course for our group by some distance. If you fancy yourself as a golfer, you must play here. Sorts the men out from the boys!
Again a lovely course in great condition. Massively favoured the straight hitters in our group which was only fair I suppose as Gramacho v.good for long hook/draw. We were off directly after the members roll-up so were able to play at good pace which was nice.
Excellent all the buggies were over priced
Course was very wet but there was no slow play bar food and drinks over priced
Lovely course but buggy's expensive.
We did not enjoy this course Too many holes are up hill with upturned saucer greens Too many holes feel similar We will not play it again All other Pestana courses are more enjoyable to play
