Lying to the north of Portimao, in the Algarve, Morgado Golf Course and its sister course Alamos are laid out in a large and very quiet estate through undulating small valleys, in the Algarve countryside.

The immediate main characteristic factor is its large greens which place demand on good putting skills, not to forget the deep fairway bunkers: very testing! Being one of the longest golf courses in the region Golfe do Morgado course is set amongst valleys, rivers and woodland, interspersed with vine and citrus farming; with views of the Monchique Mountains.
