Salados, Albufeira. Links course.    

The course is set on the flat lands behind the sandy beach of Praia de Gele. The environmental nature of the course is to associate it with a typical links course but with the added asset of the sun. It is very open to the elements with little vegetation and lots of water hazards. It requires a technically skilled player to achieve a good result from a round due to the prevailing onshore beeze... Dont let the water scare you, it is not as close as it looks.

So, if you want to enjoy yourself, practice your short iron shots and at the same time take in the beautiful and relaxing landscape, Vale de Milho will not disappoint you.
