Guesthouse Bed & Breakfast in the Algarve - Gato Preto de Silves

Silves Pestana Golf

The nearest Golf to Gato Preto de Silves, apparently – has a natural calm feel about it, as if the only proper way to end on the 18th hole is upon a setting sun, slightly colouring the greens, fairways and trees in a farewell orange. Delightful.

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.
That is something else: with invading slopes and huge puddles of water swallowing your larger hit ‘n’ hopes, the idea with this one is to try sealing the day with a 70 par across 5615 metres of grass.
For the more modest golfer, perhaps…
