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.

Solid 7/10

Good course in good condition. A little flat so the challenge very much keeping the drive on relatively narrow tree lined fairways. Greens in great nick and facilitates excellent. Would definitely revisit but wouldn't be on the 'must play' list.

Lovely course. Buggy ridiculously expensive. Far more than all other courses
A proper Championship Course

Great layout and a beautiful place to play. This is a Championship course, so expect to struggle, but if you are on form you will be well rewarded

My favourite course. Steeped in history. A lot of foliage on the course due to trees but didn't affect the golf. The greens were in very good condition with lush fairways. All staff were very helpful.
