What the club says: Silves is a serene spot at the foot of the Monchique mountain, but it is anything other than 'a walk in the park' - a drive at the opening hole has to flirt with water hazards on both flanks.

This course is for players - low handicaps will find it a serious challenge to come in under par. But high handicaps (with concentration) will be able to enjoy their round.

Most holes offer spectacular mountain views overlooking palm trees and olive groves, the surrounding cork and citrus farms generate a true feeling of authentic Portuguese golf.

Great course, but a long walk.
Use a power cart or a buggy.

Spectacular Course - A Must

Out of the 6 courses available in the Pestana Portfolio, this is my favourite. We have been to Portugal three times now and this is still my favourite. Elevated tees, lakes, palm trees, fountains, cactus plants ... what more could you want ? take your camera as i took more photo's here than golf shots !

Long Course

Looking at the yardage, I suppose the course from the Red's is not that long as stated in my title, it just felt that long. A lot of the holes were wide open fairways where distance was required from the tee along with a big fairway wood. I didn't like it much it became more of a slog than an enjoyable game of golf.

Long Straight Holes

Silves is a course for big hitters. Although I put together a pretty decent round I found the going a little boring. One of the holes was basically a big drive and 2 big three woods to get anywhere near the green. Not a course you would have to pick your way round. The greens were very good though.

Okay

Not a bad course greens are good. Bunkers vary! The only real draw back is the limited practice facility. This could be developed with some imagination.

Course was in good condition, with the greens playing quick and true. Pace of play was much better than recent rounds at Alamos & Morgado, although still 4.5 hours. Clubhouse still under whelming but hopefully once the new building work has been completed, it will be revamped.

Beautiful gem of a course

Lovely course and layout. Need to stay on fairway, tricky rough. Very scenic. Very slow play on our day didn't really distract from the enjoyment.

Managed to get an early \"twilight\" round at 1430.\Unfortunately there had been a competition on earlier and the course was very busy with three and fourbals in front of our twoball.\Settled in our buggy and kept calm - no chance of getting through.\Interesting mix of holes with elevated tees and greens, decent bunkering. Okay greens considering dry conditions, but fast.\Didn\'t quite finish (we got through16), but probably could have at a push.\Good day out and surprisingly green course contrasting with someother, very barren ones.
