Golf courses at Penina Hotel & Golf Resort

Resort Course

The 9-hole Resort Golf Course at Penina Hotel offers 18-tees so players can play a full round if they wish. The track is full of its own challenges, though not to the calibre of the championship golf course, that will still test players, making this a great warm-up golf course before taking your game to the main layouts.

Championship Course

Style: Parkland

The Championship Penina Golf Course, designed by Henry Cotton, is an 18-hole, par-72 classic British parkland layout which has been a firm favourite for UK visitors. It has hosted the Portuguese Open on many occasions and is a great test of golf. Featuring a range of streams, ditches and water hazards throughout, its length and beautiful woodland areas can cause serious problems and will force players to keep their focus. This course provides a challenge for even the most proficient of players.
