Penina Championship Description

The Penina Championship Golf Course is the grandfather of all courses in the Algarve and a permanent living memory to its architect and active promoter, Sir Henry Cotton. It was originally paddy fields for rice growing that has been converted into a flat challenging course and especially for the stronger player. Something short of half a million shrubs and trees were planted in the conversion. As the fairways are flat Henry Cotton introduced strategically placed water hazards to catch the unwary long hitter.

Very enjoyable round of golf. Greens could be better. Staff were first class. Would recommend.

Fantastic course with a very warm welcome. Every hole has a ditch and this can sometimes catch you out! You need to know your yardages to play well around Penina. They have a buggy bar half way round plus a challenge hole which is fun.
Nice course in decent shape

Nice classic course in decent shape. The greens are very soft so you can really go for the pin. To live up to its old reputation they need to put some work in the areas just outside the fairway.

Long time since I last played here but it was still as good as I remembered it. Perhaps not the longest course in the Algarve any more but Henry Cotton designed it to be a good test of your complete game and it did not disappoint I look forward to going back again
