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.

Ben from Europe
Loved it. Somehow we joined the practice round for the Portuguese Amateur Championship :-) You should get in the hotel for the buffet breakfast for 16 euros
Good challenging course

Chris from United Kingdom
A well laid out course with lots of nice holes. Long wide fairways in general. Good greens in nice condition. Fairways quite brown and bare in some places but playable.
Good for holiday golf

The championship course offers a good test for holiday golfers although the fairways are patchy but the greens good. Plenty of ditches and water to challenge golfers of all levels.
Surprisingly good!

Actually surprisingly good (despite loads of negative reviews). A bit bare in places and greens soft (so loads of pitch marks).
