Golf in Algarve: Can You Handle the Morgado Course?

Many golfers have heard a number of stories surrounding the Morgado golf course. This course offers a number of challenges meant to test golfers and skills, but can you say you are ready for the challenges? A number of previous golfers have weighed in on their experience and many have nothing but good things to say. Few can agree there are a number of challenges to keep tabs on before playing the course. Here are some to review to get an idea of whether you want to make Morgado your next golfing adventure.

Generous Fairways and Plenty of Green

The look of the greens is eye catching and relaxing to any golfer. It may seem as if they go on for miles and miles. But, some may find this aspect challenging for a different reasons. You can practice putting till your hearts content but there are a number of sand dunes to watch out for. If your putting skills aren’t where you want them to be you could struggle just a bit on the green. Yet, some golfers like this aspect and consider the course easier to play.

Accuracy Is Challenged with Various Deep Bunkers

There are a number of fairway bunkers and small valleys that can make your plays more challenging. This means your accuracy skills will be put to the test. Many players who are familiar with the course feel it may have an intimidating look with the various bunkers and valleys, but feel it plays relatively fair. Another element that comes into play is wind. As mentioned earlier there is plenty of green on the course, but this also sets up for more wind to affect how you play. You will need to keep this in mind when playing at deep bunkers to make necessary changes to your play approach.

Longer Wider Course Offers Great Challenges Overall

Many golfers feel this course has plenty to offer and it is a fun option for golfers of all levels. It is in a good location with the Alamos golf course (sister course) close by. Golfers admire the natural look of the fairway and the quietness that accompanies the experience on the course. The course has a few lakes that not only add to its beauty, it makes for more interesting challenges for players to tackle. If you think you can handle the Morgado then what are you waiting for?

The Climate is Excellent

Portimao golf courses are in a region of Portugal that has an amazing climate. Portimao is close enough to the shore to enjoy the cool sea breezes, but far enough away that it doesn’t rain all of the time.

The Mediterranean and temperate climate also keeps the temperature fairly comfortable for golfing, which means that Portimao golf courses are ideal in almost every way in terms of weather.
