Top hint for this course

We want to help you out because you're the one booking. On the final hole, it may seem tempting for the big hitters to smash this one. But it may be better to play slightly shorter than usual as there are two bunkers guarding the green. Playing shorter will set up a much easier approach shot.

If you're looking for a loop that challenges your group of mixed-skilled golfers, this one might be your priority. There are tests for the veteran to the beginner swinger, it's a crowd-pleaser.

Be sure to check this one out if stunning views are also high on your priority list. Most visitors comment on the beautiful scenery. Do you know what this means? A smashing view at the clubhouse. This will tick all your boxes.


Even though it appears short in length, don't let this trick you. It may be a favourite, but the fairways, greens and hazards will test your resolve. The winner deserves a beer bought for them afterwards.

Starting at the 1st, hazards on either side of the fairway will punish any driving off the tee that doesn't have complete concentration and accuracy. Tell your loud-mouth mates to be quiet when teeing off.

At the start of the back nine, your approach shot on this par-4 will call upon your chipping skills. A water hazard guards the green, if your chipping game is on point, we're sure you'll land on the dancefloor.

The 18th has bunkers around the left of the landing area so watch out all you big hitters! The approach shot then faces beaches surrounding the green. Sink the putt to bring the game home to its rightful winner.


Silves' 19th hole is a luxury. It's a modern take on clubhouse design and it's nothing short of sublime. If your group are a fan of the modern golf aesthetic, then this might be your new favourite clubhouse (we won't tell your local you cheated).

This has a breathtaking view and top-of-the-range facilities, all ready for you to chill after an intense round in the Mediterranean heat. The club's inviting atmosphere will have you a few drinks down within the blink of an eye.

The grub on this menu is perfect for refuelling and preparing for the day ahead.
