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.

I absolutely love this course. It is not as pristine as some of the courses up near Vilamoura but it is absolutely stunning. The tree lined holes are extremely well planned to make it a fair challenge and if forces you to think on all holes. It is definitely the most peaceful course I have played in the World, where you can be at one with your thoughts, getting away from the world, yet enjoying a competitive round at the same time. Can’t wait to play again.

A little bit disappointed with Penina, the fairways were burnt and bare thus had some difficult lies to play from,. I don’t think we will be playing there next year.

Greens lovely, fairways need more water. Very dry & patchy in places. Would I pay to play this course again for the price? No. Expected better being a championship course
