Situated in one of the best-known regions of the Algarve, between Albufeira and Armação de Pêra, Salgados is already a "postcard" of Portuguese golf. In fact the proximity of the sea and the variety of lakes make this a very interesting test of golfing skills making it different from other courses in the Algarve.

The original project is by the Portuguese designer Pedro de Vasconcelos with more recent contributions from other Portuguese architects. But the final layout has been heavily influenced by Robert Muir Graves.

The 6,000 metre links, replete with water obstacles is not very long yet you will need all your skills to reach the greens. The accuracy of the drive is crucial for achieving good scores thus making the course a pleasant experience especially for technically-skilled player.

The eighteen holes are well balanced, as each half of the course has two par 5 holes of around 500 metres and three par 3 of more than 170 metres.
