Pinheiros Altos Golf Course located within the well-known Quinta do Lago estate, within the golfing world it is known as providing a mental challenge due to well placed hazards. Bordering the 18,300 hectares of Natural Park of Ria Formosa which provides a habitat for many species of birds and has much interesting vegetation.|Pinheiros Altos is a combination of 27 holes composed by three groups of 9 holes named Oliveiras (Olives), Pinheiros (Pines) and Sobreiros (Corks), respectively. This highly original and distinctive course possesses completely opposing characteristics. The original 18-hole course of Pinheiros Altos was well-known for its contrasting nines. While the first 9-hole are over rolling sandy undergrowth with gentle pine trees, the shorter second 9-hole runs through hills dotted with lakes that present the main obstacle for the golfers on this course.
We enjoyed our day on a difficult golf course at times. We did feel under pressure from the course marshal's who wanted us to play quicker. They said we had lost time on the group infront but they were a 2 ball to our 4 ball and teed off 20 minutes in front of is? Some of the fairways were a little bare in places.
Fairways in ok condition. No sat nav on buggies and no ice or water in cooler.
Played Cork then Olive sets of 9. I enjoyed Cork which was interesting and in good condition. Olive was not interesting and the long par 5 followed by a long par 3 did not achieve anything. Also Olive was very slow. The island par 3 was the best hole, a birdie helps! But otherwise would not come back. I hear the other 9, Pines, is better. Staff were friendly and helpful but overall there are better courses in the area.
We have played Pinheiros Altos regularly over the past 15 years and always enjoyed it. This week however we found it in the worst condition ever. Fairways were dreadful. We would normally play there 3 or 4 times in a 2 week break but will not be returning.
Behind slow players who didn’t let us through. Course not in best condition. Over priced
Pinheiros Altos (Olives & Pines) is a very nice course, in very good condition tee to green. Many sections of cart path need repairs.
There are a few concerns. The staff was terrific to say the least. The condition of the course a disappointment. Surprised to see the cart paths so poorly maintained. The greens were not in any kind of shape compared to the other 5 courses we played. Fairways had lost of dead grass, compared to the others. I understand it is off season, but in comparison the courses was the poorest shape. The course is a very nice old course, conditions were a surprise.
Course and paths in poor condition. Plants and grass growing in bunkers.
Golf course was enjoyable and in good order. (Better than San Lorenzo played the previous day) No Marshall and 4 hole gap in front of group (3 ball) in front of us who didn’t let us (2 ball) through. Last 3 holes of olive course had decent carries over water so added an extra dimension. No one at buggy collection on our arrival and told by one of team in pro shop to take a particular buggy which he pointed to from the shop window upstairs ( was dirty from previous occupants so just took a different one) When I enquired about ice for the drinks box was told to get my own from bar upstairs.
Smooth and friendly reception
