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.

Now a disgrace
on Thu, 7th Oct 2021
Malcolm Fisher from Portugal
I’ve been coming to Penina for 25 years and never seen the course in such poor condition. It is a disgrace the way this ex championship course has been allowed to fade into mediocrity. There is nothing about which I can be positive. Both fairways and greens are in very poor condition, and there are leaks to the watering system all over the course. You know things are bad when even the Pro Shop staff warn you the course is in bad condition! I just hope that someone does take over the hotel and course and spend the £millions it needs to restore it to its former glories.

Great course but greens were awful and whole course looks tired and in need of some investment. Staff food and facilities all excellent.

I had been warned about the condition of the course in July, but thought there should have been enough time for things to improve. Unfortunately the greens have not been taken care of as there is invasive grass and damage on all of the greens and they were bumpy and difficult to putt on. Having played other courses in the area recently this course is sadly behind on repairing them. This course has a long history and pedigree but needs some TLC.

Overall a good course, challenging but lacking maintenance, debris about, layout ok but some tee points lacked hole information boards, and distance markers. Some greens a bit tacky and patchy. Val de Lobo Ocean and Old Course much better quality.
