Faldo Description

The 18 hole Nick Faldo Golf Course is located close to the village of Amendoeira and it is impressive to play and has the challenges to be a real talking point in the Algarve - with so many courses in the region this it is no mean feat. In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of heather, attractive oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of a lush woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace the Berkshire sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play.

With strategic play in mind, the course asks for careful positioning to score well. Rocky areas, meandering watercourses, good views to the distant mountains of Monchique, orange groves, all of these give the course its own character.

The course first hole is a testing uphill, Par 4, offering a number of risk and reward opportunities. The downhill, Par 5, hole 4, encounters a meandering watercourse, which comes into play on three of the front 9 holes and two of the inward play. The inward 9 holes include several which will become the talking point of the 19th hole cognoscenti. Mastering the massive Par 5 hole 13th which has a descending fairway, which when the wind is behind the player, will demand consistent shot making all the way to the hole. The holes 14 and 15 continue to challenge the golfer, sometimes playing amongst rocky outcrops. After leaving the high ground to the west, the 18th brings the game to a close with a magnificent Par 5.

Excellent course ....very challenging and well-maintained.

Jacqueline Scarone from Switzerland
The price is excellent The place is very nice but would need a little bit more work on fairways. We enjoyed playing this course.
Bad Management leads to disappointing round!!

matt from United Kingdom
Whilst I appreciate that this is a tricky/tight course better suited to the more accurate and lower handicap golfer it was extremely disappointing with the sheer number of people playing this course. Whilst I accept that it was high season it is unacceptable to be kicked off the course due to it apparently closing at 8pm which we were never told. We tee'd off at 3pm and were on the 16th tee when we were asked to leave at 8pm. This is also an expensive course and round of golf to not be able to complete. I think the clubhouse needs to be a lot stricter on handicaps and slow play especially during high season!! The course was in immaculate condition especially for it being high season with a lot of traffic but unfortunately our experience was ruined due to the bad management by the course officials!!
