The Faldo Course, Amendoeira Golf Resort
The Faldo Golf Course overview
The Faldo Course at Amendoeira is a classic design with a modern twist with all the makings of a classic parkland course. Due to the location of the course, heather, woodland and sandy tracts have been replaced by cacti, wild herbs, holm oaks, olive trees and desert scrub bunkers. Measuring in at 7258 yards and a par-72, the Faldo Course is a mid-length course and is not to be underestimated as many hazards await you if your ball stray off line.
Nick Faldo masterfully put this course together with the idea of creating one of the best courses in Portugal and while every hole can be considered a signature hole, the par-4 12th hole gets the vote for the best hole on the course.
Golfers are met with a magnificent tee shot over a wooded valley to a ridged fairway above. The fairway then doglegs right with the green perched right next to a magnificent oak tree which guards the right-hand edge.

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

"Excellent golf course, one of my favourites on the Algarve. Quite long and tricky for high handicappers but condition is perfect and buggies included is a bonus!"
