Saved by the greens ?
I played Salgados three times between Xmas and New Year 2021, the fairways were in pretty poor shape, either wet... bare and dry, or badly cut. Yes the course has lots of water, and for a first timer, not knowing where water comes into play does make the course harder than its index.
The greens however were in really great shape, true pace, and would accept spin from medium and short irons.
2nd 6th and 18th are all strong holes. the shorter par 4's certainly need a "golfing brain" whereby placement off the tee is far more important than distance. Sadly 14th and 15th are two of the most boring par 5's I have ever played
I shot progressivly lower as i played each round, and my nett score after three rounds was only 6 over my indexed handicap for the course.
The other two NAU owned courses ( Alamos and Morgado ) are much better.
North American look in Europe
Not your typical European golf course. Very flat, lush faiways, fast and huge greens. Nice layout. When we played winds were up to 80kn hour. Had to club up at least 3 clubs to reach desired target. Also had to aim between 50 and 60 yards off target and Wind tok care of rest. nonetheless, still shot 87. Good day
