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.

Twilight golf. Exhausting
on Sat, 4th Feb 2023
Eugene from Portugal
Welcome and staff great. Course. Challenging to say the least.. poor condition due to dry weather and lack of watering due to risk of frost apparently. Fairways brown and worn but lots of run. Greens excellent still and are clearly being irrigated so don’t think frost argument can be true. So for the current price felt overcharged. I enjoyed the challenge as an 11 handicapper but my wife at 32 handicap hated it as did other higher handicappers. 5 hour round is the norm due to challenge and huge walks between tees. . Played 16 holes with 1.20 tee time
Tough strategic layout

Great layout, but very tough. Some long par 4s, and so many raised greens, very tricky. Fairways were great and greens were as well. Difficult judging pace particularly if you’re above the hole. Strategy is key. If you can’t reach green in regulation, you need to pick a good spot to get up and down. Think I need a word with Nick!
