The main challenge on this course is the water hazards. The greens were not in great condition, lumpy and uneven in places making putting a bit of a lottery.

Herdade Dos Salgados
Designed by: Pedro de Vasconcelos.
Open for play: 1994TEES

Yellow: 6,233 yards
Blue: 5,687 yards
Red: 5,201 yards
Signature hole: par 4, 1st hole
The signature hole is arguably the first, where there is no easy opening - golfers must thread the ball onto a fairway bordered on both sides by threatening water features. In addition to this, the beautiful par 5 6th hole is said to be on of the hardest holes in the game of golf with plenty of water lining the fairways and when the wind is blowing it can play very long. The 6,649 yard layout was originally conceived by Pedro de Vasconcelos, but has since been the subject of revision work, most notably by the Scotsman, Robert Muir Graves. The course has been sympathetically built into a protected wildlife area, where many rare bird species make their home. Salgados has a tremendous variety of holes, ensuring that it is an intriguing test for golfers of all abilities. Easily accessed from Albufeira, Vilamoura or the Western Algarve, Salgados can fit into just about any holiday itinerary for a golf holiday along the famous coastline.

Technical course with lots of water!
Very difficult with no real escape for a wayward shot.
Very tight difficult driving on all holes lots of water
This course is the busy of the 3 and due to the volume of players can take 30-45 mins longer to play . This is partly due to the difficulty ,a few holes with water and more rough ,Bermuda grass around the greens ,difficult to chip out of and sometimes difficult to find your balls.Greens are in good condition and a challenge to read .my favourite course out of the 3.
A great test of golf . I’ve rated it as HARD ‼️Mainly because of the amount of water all over the course . If you have a wide ‘slice’ or ‘hook’ you will be in trouble ( usually wet ) . But the Fairways are wide and a score is attainable for any handicap golfer . Again , good Fairways , Greens and bunkers .
Very nice course but difficult.
Lovely course had great viwes and great to have people selling cold drinks on the course and also the other causes the stuard chased the slow players
Enjoyed but very slow too many players
Having been appraised of a potential buggy availability problem (refer Morgado review),this dilemma was resolved through the kind intervention of the Salgados Dunas Suites reception staff. However, on arrival at the course , I noted that other groups were not so lucky and were faced with walking the course on a very warm day. Otherwise the course was enjoyable and met with expectations .
Interesting course not as easy as it looked with some tight holes. There were tricky areas where water would play a part of your game. I would say it was the harder of the three courses.
Wow! If you like courses with water then this is the one for you. It’s everywhere. Flat course so walkable. A little gem but very very busy.
Unfortunately this was a particularly long day as the four ball in front of us were very very new to the game of golf. The ranger did his best to hurry them along as it meant a big backlog of players anxious to start their game.
There is insane amount of water that made it difficult, but loved the course.
Booking groups of 1 and 10 is not good,course awful slow and backed up,just looking to get as many people out and as much money as they can , very disappointed
A very nice course one that all abilities will enjoy
Water, water everywhere , a real test and a pleasure to play. I hope to return.
14 holes with water on this course if you can keep out of it you'll score well out of 18 players we managed to cut quite a few handicaps.
Accuracy needed off the tees with there being a lot of water hazards
first class some tight holes but some were you could let loose with the driver
condition of the course was brilliant, credit to the green keepers
