Golf in Amendoeira

Amendoeira is of little historical importance and more or less remained a small one street village located between the triangle of Silves, Lagoa and Albufeira. It remains as the turning off point to the south for the holiday destination of the beach town of Armacao de Pera.

However, due to the construction of the A22 motorway the access is virtually direct into the village, and also to the two championship courses named the Faldo Golf Course and the O'Connor Golf Course. It is also a short distance from the water park 'Aqualand Algarve' that offers family entertainment during the summer season.

Faldo by Mary Lou from Canada
Faldo Fabulous
The very challenging holes combined with more straight forward holes keep even the most average player like me energized, challenged and rewarded. Good pace of play. The overall course is on an enormous piece of land so there is also a lot of landscape architecture and hole design to take in. It’s a wow!

A brute of a course.
Scores well for souperbly protected greens.
Service was poor.
Had to wait and wait for a buggy which eventually arrived just 5 minutes before our tee time.
OConnor by Iain
Good Layout and Excellent Greens
We had played Faldo previously and had been very impressed so tried O’Connor this time. Unlike Faldo there are no elevation changes but we were not disappointed. Good layout and excellent condition of greens.
OConnor by Colin from United Kingdom
Very enjoyable and challenging
Another great course next door to the Faldo course. Not quite as difficult, but still challenging and very enjoyable to play.
Faldo by Colin from United Kingdom
An incredibly challenging but enjoyable course
This is possibly the most challenging course I've ever played on and it's the sort of place you need to play a few times to figure out how to play it. Having said that, it was very enjoyable. The only main downside is that the people ahead of us were really slow (looking for lost balls) and it took us just short of 6 hours to get round. Not a course for poor golfers!!!!! Buggie absolutely essential.
