Join us here as we enjoy 5 rounds of organised golf on the beautiful and challenging Salgados and Álamos courses, while staying at the Salgados Dunas Suites hotel.

About this holiday

If you like the idea of staying in a good quality hotel, with an 18-hole golf course minutes away, then the Salgados Dunas Suites is a great choice. The resort’s golf course sits close to our hotel and we hope that this will prove a popular choice for our 2019 Spring Festival!

Salgados Dunas Suites

Salgados Dunas Suites is our base for the week, providing the perfect place to relax after a round of competitive golf. A short distance separates the hotel from the sandy Salgados beach, giving you a great excuse to take a morning stroll along the shore. When you’re not playing golf, you can relax at one of the hotel’s four (adult) swimming pools, wander through the extensive gardens or spend the evening sampling the hotel’s restaurant and bar. We are also located a short 15 minute drive from Albufeira, where soft sandy beaches and a busy nightlife strip await – perfect if you fancy a livelier evening out!

Golf Festival Schedule

5 rounds of organised golf, including 4 on the Salgados course and 1 on the Alamos course, including 2 Individual Stableford Competitions for Ladies and Gents. Transfers also included where required. 

Salgados Course

18 holes, Par 72

Our festival includes 4 rounds of golf on the Salgados course, an 18-hole course situated at Herdate dos Salgados close to the city of Albufeira. Set next to a nature reserve, this flat course is home to many endangered bird species and promises impressive views over the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the wind, a round here is never the same and offers a challenge for even the most practiced of golfers. Almost all the holes are flanked by lagoons and one (number 6) is considered one of the most difficult in the world!

Álamos Course

18 holes, Par 71

To add variety to our golf week, our golf schedule includes one round of golf here at Alamos. Although the length of the round is relatively short, Álamos Golf Course is a constant challenge. With 18 holes, it’s a fairly technical but narrow course with all the features needed to meet the expectations of the most demanding player. The Alamos Golf Course is situated next to the Serra de Monchique, only 4km from the city of Portimao. Completely surrounded by lush nature, the course offers superb views towards the hills of Serra de Monchique and beyond.  Transfers to this course are provided and take approximately 30 minutes. 

Salgados Dunas Suites ★★★★★

Our peaceful hotel is ideally located just 6km away from Albufeira, a 40 minute drive from Faro International Airport and just a short stroll away from the long, sandy beach.

Facilities include 4 outdoor swimming pools for adults, a poolside bar, restaurant and spa* local charges will apply for some spa services.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Faro Airport to the Salgados Dunas Suites is approximately 60 minutes, depending on weather and traffic.

Golfing Schedule:
5 rounds of organised golf; 4 rounds on Salgados Course and 1 round on Alamos Course.

Golf Handicaps
This trip is for golfers with a handicap of 36 or lower for ladies and 28 or lower for gentlemen.

Please advise our Reservations team of your handicap at the time of booking, alternatively you can add this to the special requirements box on our booking page. If you have a certificate please ensure you take it with you on the trip, this enables the Tour Leader to assess everyone’s ability, so that rounds and competitions can be organised fairly.

If you are uncertain about these requirements please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to advise you.

Golf Club Insurance
Clients will most probably find that their golf clubs are covered on their household insurance policy. Most policies cover a single item such as golf clubs for a period out of the country. However, clients should make very sure that they do have cover. If not, Solo’s Holidays insurance includes cover for golf clubs and bag.

Buggy, Trolley & Club Hire
Most golf clubs have these items available for hire, however this is not always the case, so clients would be advised to check with us beforehand if they have any specific requirements.

Golf Footwear
Golf shoes with soft spikes are required.

Carriage of Clubs
We advise you to use a light golf bag when packing your clubs. We suggest you wrap a towel round the neck of the clubs to protect them and stop them rattling around whilst in transit. It is also important to then place the bag and clubs in an outer carrying bag, which can be purchased from any good golf shop.

What to Wear
Golf attire during the day. We suggest smart casual for the evenings.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.

Passports and visas
A full 10-year passport is required valid for at least the duration of your stay. Holders of passports with the inscription “British Citizen” or “European Union” do not require a visa.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct visa, a valid passport and any other travel documents for your holiday. All information provided relates to British citizens who hold or are entitled to apply for a British passport. For the most up-to-date visa information please visit; Spain Foreign Advice

If you are not a British citizen and do not hold a British passport, you must make your own enquiries as to the applicable requirements. Alternatively, you can apply for your Visa with our preferred partner the Travel Visa company by selecting the following link; Travel Visa Company.
