The Faldo Course Details

The Faldo Course introduction

Designed by Nick Faldo, the Oceanico Faldo Course requires strategic play to score well. The desert like feel of the course provides an entertaining yet stern test of golf. You can choose to stay on-site at the Amendoeira Golf Resort, as well as play the Oceanico O'Connor course, an easier yet very contrasting option at the resort.

The Faldo Course information

18 holes, 72 par, 7258 yards. Parkland / Inland.

The Faldo Course is a modern twist on a traditional recipe, with the heather, lush woodland and sandy tracts of Sunningdale being replaced by cacti, wild herbs, holm oaks, ancient olive trees and desert scrub bunkers. This is a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play. Designer Nick Faldo said "The real skill is that when you stand on the tee, the golf hole tells you what to do, and if you do what it tells you there is reward but if you don’t you’re penalized”. Who are we to argue!

The Faldo Course Location

The Faldo Course Portugal is situated in Silves, Algarve, just 40 minutes from Faro Airport.

Very good test of golf and beautifully presented overall. Some bunkers could do with a bit more sand but only a minor point. There is a a refreshment buggy that drives the course selling cold drinks which is also a welcome sight when the weather is hot.

A stunning course, would get a 10 if the sand in the bunkers was better, greens were slightly slower than the O'Conner course.
