Golf Courses

The Alvor Course
9 holes
Par 36
Designed by Robert Trent Jones II
Located primarily on the northern part of the site, the Alvor Course has a parkland character with mature trees and lovely views of the Monchique hills. Changes in elevation are integral to the design of this nine as a majority of the golf holes ascend hillsides or descend through intimate valleys. The parkland setting disappears briefly with a series of holes with more expansive views. A preview of the dunes and links holes to come is provided in the sixth and seventh holes. As the round concludes, the course again assumes the parkland character.
The Lagos Course
9 holes
Par 36
Designed by Robert Trent Jones II
The Lagos Course begins with the same parkland character. This course incorporates the only two lakes found on the entire site at the short par-3 third hole and the long par-4 sixth hole. Holes seven and eight immerse golfers into the expansive dune lands on the southwestern portion of the site. The round concludes with a climb to the clubhouse and back into more parkland setting.
The Praia Course
9 holes
Par 36
Designed by Robert Trent Jones II
The third nine at Palmares presents the golf experience every great designer dreams of having the privilege to create a seaside landscape with dunes exposed to the elements. The four seaside holes are between the beach and the railway line. The course opens by descending from a parkland setting. The second hole then whisks golfers into the true links part of the course. The dunes character is continued through the remainder of the Praia Golf Course with the closing hole, a strong uphill par-5, rising up out of the dunes through a deep valley to an amphitheatre just below the clubhouse.


Due to open in 2014 Onyria Palmares Beach & Golf Resort will be harmoniously integrated into one of the most paradisiacal landscapes of the Algarve, the Onyria Palmares Hotel will be the perfect example of a 5 star hotel and, at the same time, a decisive contribution for high quality tourism at Lagos area.
