onyria palmares golf club & marina club lagos ****
The Onyria Palmares Golf Course is located just 45 minutes away from Faro Airport, in Lagos. This region was voted as the number one Tourist Destination by TripAdvisor in 2012. The course was designed by Trent Jones Jr. and has already been awarded with 7 prizes; including 23rd in Golf World's TOP 100 Europe Courses. Onyria Palmares has 27 holes (3 loops of 9, each ending at the Clubhouse) every one offering breathtaking sea-views and some featuring links holes.
The Alvor Course
Located primarily on the northern part of the site, the Alvor Course has a parkland character with mature trees and lovely views of the Monchique hills. Changes in elevation are integral to the design of this nine as a majority of the golf holes ascend hillsides or descend through intimate valleys. The parkland setting disappears briefly with a series of holes with more expansive views. A preview of the dunes and links holes to come is provided in the sixth and seventh holes. As the round concludes, the course again assumes the parkland character.
The Lagos Course
The Lagos Course begins with the same parkland character. This course incorporates the only two lakes found on the entire site at the short par-3 third hole and the long par-4 sixth hole. Holes seven and eight immerse golfers into the expansive dune lands on the south-western portion of the site. The round concludes with a climb to the clubhouse and back into a more parkland setting.
The Praia Course
The third nine at Palmares presents the golf experience every great designer dreams of having the privilege to create: a seaside landscape with dunes exposed to the elements. The four seaside holes are between the beach and the railway line. The course opens by descending from a parkland setting. The second hole then whisks golfers into the true links part of the course. This dunes character is continued through the remainder of the Praia Golf Course with the closing hole, a strong uphill par-5, rising up out of the dunes through a deep valley to an amphitheatre just below the clubhouse.
The Marina Club Lagos Resort is only 5 Km away from the golf and transfers to and from the hotel are included in the price. The Marina is a 4-star Suite Hotel offering extensive spa facilities and boasts an indoor pool. The Marina is within easy walking distance from bars. The Marina Club Lagos also offers two and three bedroom apartments with self catering facilities.
