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.

When we first played this course 6 years ago we were blown away with it, unfortunately after this year it will be the last time we do. The course is hideously overplayed now (along with the o’Connor) due to the all inclusive golf packages the resort offers. Tee boxes are a mess, greens aren’t hammered. The Dom Pedro and Vale De Lobo courses are definitely a much better option. Don’t bother with buffet breakfast here (price was made up on the spot - started at €30 and was reduced to €15 when we questioned). The plates are side plates (no joke) the bacon has bone in it and the sausages are little frankfurters!

Great layout, very challenging, but unfortunately a lot of the surrounding area (off the fairway) were in poor condition. As were the bunkers and tee boxes. Such a shame that there’s a lack of maintenance on a great track. Fairways and Greens were fairly good.

Lovely facilities, staff were excellent and the course was beautiful. Greens were lightning fast and rolled true. We got a great summer rate deal and would highly recommend.
