Advice For Those Who Want To Play Golf In Lagos, Portugal

What to do in Lagos

If you are planning to play golf in Lagos this year, get ready to see some amazing coastline. You will be looking over the edge of cliffs at many points on the course and staring into the blue distance of the Atlantic Ocean. When you finish your 18-holes, you can even go exploring in the sea caves if you want to. Speaking of tourism and things to do, make some time to visit the old town of Lagos for some culture, good food and drink. Don't worry about having nothing to do apart from golf, you (or anybody in your party who is not a keen golfer) can visit the zoo or even have some splash time fun in the water park.

Getting there and staying there

It is best to fly to Faro airport and there are plenty of airport transfers from there to the golfing areas. For accommodation, here are three options that come well recommended by many golfers over the years who have visited the area:

  • The Marina Club Lagos

  • Tivoli Lagos

  • Vila Gale Lagos

Golf Options

The 27-hole Onyria Palmares course is the star course in the area. Some other options include the perfectly manicured Boavista course and Parque de Floresta. If you are still struggling for options beyond the big three listed here, below are three more courses for you to consider:

  • Palmares Golf Course

  • Santo Antonio Golf Course

  • Espiche Golf Course

There are many more options than these three but they are enough to stop researching online and start booking, planning and packing.

Anybody who loves putting and is visiting Lagos needs to visit the Pro Putting Gardens. Here you will find x2 mini golf courses - and they are very different to what you might already know as a mini golf course. The putting surfaces are as close to grass and you'll be astonished by the speed of them- 7.5 on the stimp meter, close to the speed of the greens at the British Open this year. There is also a 9-hole children's course and a full-length 18-hole layout. The Putting Gardens are just a short walk from the old town walls of Lagos. If you are staying in the old town, you have arguably the best putting facilities in the world right on your doorstep.
