pestana silves golf course
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. Silves encourages and rewards attacking play. The excellent condition, all year round, is ideal for low scoring.
A relentless test in precision, this course has no peers. It is the "archetype" of man-sized parkland golf. Most holes offer a spectacular mountain and valley view, overlooking palm trees and olive groves.
The severity of the bunkering is enough defence against the onslaught of the games big guns.
