Faldo Course

Designed by Sir Nick Faldo with strategic play in mind this 6598m Par 72 championship course demands careful positioning to score well.

“The land at Amendoeira is dramatic and the project has the potential to be a real talking point in the Algarve. With so many courses in the region, that’s no mean feat”, pointed out Nick Faldo, during his visit in 2007.

In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of Sunningdale’s heather, spartan Holm oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of a lush English woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace Berkshire’s sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play.

Faldo Course won, in 2016, the title of Portugal’s Best Golf Course, given by World Golf Awards.

O’Connor Jnr. Course

Designed by Christy O’Connor Jnr., this course complements the neighbouring Faldo Course and also takes full advantage of being situated in a fertile valley. Its various water features, both lakes and watercourses that are spread throughout the entire course, demand accuracy and test from all golfers, and the rich topsoil has been skillfully landscaped and planted with mature palm trees, affording a lush, ornamental setting like an extensive oasis.

This course has tees that are generally connected to the fairways, but its greater overall distance, the water hazards and big greens provide its challenge. Golfers must also be prepared to read the subtly contoured putting surfaces that are strong feature.

Academy Course

The 9 hole Academy course is the only floodlit 9 hole golf course in Portugal. It is located between the Faldo Course and the O’Connor Jnr. course is ideally suited for beginners and those who wish to sharpen up their short game. It has been built to the same high standards as the Faldo Course and O’Connor Jnr. course.

Three teeing options vary the line of play into each hole and maximize every hazard designed into the green complex. The 7th is the feature hole on the course, where two of the teeing options play over water.

The 9 hole Academy course will become a sure favorite with the whole family and a must to play alongside its big brothers.
