Decent Day out !!
A typical resort style course with wide fairways and big greens , pretty Location and nice variety with dog legs . Highlight is the condition of fairways , absolutely top

Class , Greens were mixed with a lot of bumps and lumps . The tee boxes were in bad condition , they looked like they had been resodded and relayed ! Anyway we did enjoy the course and it’s a lovely resort

Certainly worth a visit
A really good and very challenging course with some outstanding views of the countryside. The nearby A22 motorway is not too noisy. Certainly worth a visit but would definitely recommend a buggy as there are some lengthy walks between green and tee. Outside of Quinta South and Monte Rei one of the best I have played in Portugal.

Great Test Of Golf
Course was in excellent condition with a lot of interesting holes, i thoroughly enjoyed playing the Faldo BUT you will need to pay it respect because it is a thinkers course.

This course will test every level especially high handicappers, you will need a golf GPS device

We had a very enjoyable round of golf at Amendoeira O,Connor.

The staff were friendly and efficient and the course was in excellent shape,

We will definitely be back.

Far better than the Faldo for condition
Far better maintained than Faldo, course is easier but still interesting enough to keep you going. Greens still could be better maintained

Poor greens, poor greenkeeping not at all good
We have payed this course numerous times in the past and have always enjoyed it, its difficult, you have to think and the terrain changes throughout the round but the upkeep this time was terrible grass around bunkers high meaning the ball does not rill in but leaves you thick rough to hack out of, greens the worst I have seen anywhere in Portugal or beyond, uneven, numerous un repaired pitch marks. At >€130 for a round we expect and deserve much, much more.

Beautiful Faldo course (lots of sand)
Course is beautiful and well maintained overall. Cobblestone cart paths are unique but the few areas of disrepair detracts from that.

Biggest downside we’re the soft greens really need to be rolled as they were not true

a disappointment
Unfortunately, the greens are in very bad order diluting the enjoyment of the game.

An enjoyable day out
A real resort course, not too difficult but has plenty to offer in terms of water, bunkers and length. Hard to miss a fairway yet the course is well protected. An enjoyable place overall, with a clubhouse to savour too. The back nine is a treat especially the last few holes.

Faldo on Sun, 22nd Sep 2019
Play it twice to conquer
A cracker, definitely more challenging that the O'Connor with plenty of trickery and spots to lose a ball. Another Algarve treat with a mixture of difficult holes and holes that only you can make difficult.
Guillaume from France
Faldo on Sun, 1st Sep 2019
Fantastic golf course
Bunkers are always in game, on the fairway or around greens. Roughs are thick. The last 9, holes are sloping. Rent a buggy isn't a luxe, some transition are a little bit long and climb hard! All the Golf Team is very kind. Play it!

Really good course
We really had a good day. Challenging holes, course in very good condition.

Just be award that the paths are very slippery

A bad day of golf is better than _____. Not here.
Chaotic club house, terrible pace of play, slow greens, scorched fairways, and worst of all, warm beer off the cart (which came around once).

I should have stayed on the beach...speaking of which, the traps were sloppy, too.

One of the best golf courses in Algarve. Perfect condition, perfect design, perfect views. Very demanding even for single handicapped players.

Not as good as last year
Played last hear on O'Connor jr course and couldn't adult ANYTHING, this hear Faldo course. Course was in perfect condition and more challenging tnan O'Connor, but total visitor experiences is less then last year, little things like tokens for range balls instead of the prepared complimentary pyramids, small things but it's the difference between 4 stars and 5 stars.

Love this course!
Great layout and excellent condition. Staff all very pleasant and practice facilities are excellent. The only thing that slightly spoiled the experience for me was the slow rate of play. There are plenty of stewards on the course but they appear unwilling to do anything about slow groups. Will definitely play again though.

Superb course
Superb course - lovely condition and a very interesting layout which makes you think carefully about each shot.

Greens were top notch.

Probably the best course I’ve played on the Algarve.

We will be back
Service is second to none.

Course is suitable for all handicaps as long as you are sensible.

Lots of wildlife and great views

Great course for intermediate & good golfers
Lovely course layout and good facilities, well conditioned tees fairways and greens when we played in June. I would recommend for 18 or lower handicappers, lots of water and impenetrable plants line the fairways so if you’re not straight off the tee bring balls, lots of balls

Bad Organisation
The course is nice, but the organisation terrible! We waited for 50 minutes before we got our buggy. Obviously more tee times are being sold than there are buggies available.

one should have a birdie card - to play it without for the first time withou any knowledge how the hole looks like , was for me very challenging. Hwr quality of the course and views are worth to play

Course layout good and condition good. But there are some scruffy areas bordering the course, junk under bridges etc which detract from the enjoyment. Clubhouse bar lacks character.

Great course, Slow play
Great course, if you don’t mind 5 hr 39 min rounds...

I played 3 rounds here, which is a strong positive endorsement. But all 3 took 5 hrs .

Great course
Challenging course, outstanding layout and design. Beautiful setting. Staff was wonderful. Negatives: greens were slow; some bunkers in mild disrepair

Faldo on Tue, 21st Aug 2018
I got the summer special for myself and my partner and assumed, given the low price, that this course ma may be a slightly poorer relation to some of the higher green fees on the coast. I was wrong; I’m a huge lover of Faldo’s design and this is one of the best I’ve played. It tests your all round game, has stunning views and is a very interesting layout from beginning to end. I particularly enjoyed the elevated tees and would say this is not a course for the faint of heart with many uphill shots and undulating fairways. Definitely take a buggy and definitely include this in your bucket list.

Not for the faint hearted. Great course.
Not for the faint hearted. A fantastic course for low handicaps, but you need good course management to get round without getting into trouble. Fabulous conditions.

Another great round of Golf at the Faldo course
We always enjoy playing the Faldo course, together with San Lorenzo our favourites. The 12th is always challenging to find the right line of the tee. The service is always friendly and good.

Afternoon Father and Son golf
Excellent course in great condition. A proper challenge with many different tees for all abilities but a fair test of golf. Big negative is the carts - they have a computer of course but no yardages so as good as useless - crazy, as sprinkler head yardages are not always there and not that ideal - please rectify. We also had only one golf bag to save on airline baggage so we had to rent another bag to go on the buggy - why? Ridiculous!

Decent course. It’s a bit of a drive but one of the better courses in the Algarve. Don’t even think about walking. It’s very hilly and there’s a lot of distanc from most greens to the next tee.

Service is very good.

Tom from Ireland
OConnor on Wed, 27th Jun 2018
First Class
Really beautiful and changing course but not for high handicap golfers - anyone over 18 will struggle to score with all the water and carries to the fairway. Great service included!

Perfect day
From warm welcome on arrival until my clubs were brought to the car when leaving , a perfect day was enjoyed by all. Courteous, professional, and attentive staff, and O'Connor Jr. Course a pleasure to play, will definetely return AAA

Played twilight round, last on course. Caddy master service excellent. Great layout. Service in restaurante was slightly disapointing as we felt we were keeping them from going home.

on Tue, 15th May 2018
Played both courses & liked them a lot, different challenges although found the greens on the O'Connor course to be very slow.

Biggest criticism is of the staff with regards buggies. We were late for our tee time due to them not having the keys or paperwork in order even tho we had played the day before without any issue. Also the guy cleaning the clubs at the end, DO NOT TIP! Clubs were filthy when I opened my bag on Day 2 despite giving a generous tip after the 1st day.

Mark Sheppey from United Kingdom
Faldo on Fri, 11th May 2018
quite scruffy in places compared to other times i have played it, very slow as in 5 and half hours in a buggy. real shame as it is a great location and course but you are paying top price so i expect it to be spot on
