Amendoeira Faldo Golf 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.

Nick said: “This was a very exciting project, which gave me a great opportunity to exploit my passion for design the same way I exploited my passion for playing. You have incredible views, beautiful undulating land and any time you have natural terrain like this, it is great fun to work with.”

The amendoeira golf resort is a golfers paradise, with two world class golf course on site. The Faldo courses is a challenging course that golfers must hit the ball solid to play it well, strategy is involved on every single hole and course management is paramount. The course can play very long if you choose to play from the championship tees, so we’d advise to play the forward tees. The resort offers fantastic stay and play packages with their high spec apartments on site. They are often added to the golf itinerary for golf groups staying in the algarve too and you will see why as soon as you play it
