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.

Really tired and shabby. Greens were in pretty good condition but after a period of rain the course played long and wasn’t helped by an apparent lack of green staff. A real shame because the course deserves to have better attention than it’s obviously getting At €180 off season there must be better courses to play

Disappointing. The fairways were very worn and damaged in places, and we decided to use preferred lies to compensate. The greens were also the worst of the courses we played in October. The course was also very slow to play and appeared to be particularly busy. Our pre-booked start time was put back 40 minutes with no prior warning. Penina was also 100 euros more expensive for four players with buggies than the other courses we played. Overall, less than satisfactory.

Having played this course previously about 4 years ago compared to now it appears the haven't invested any money for the upkeep of the course tee boxes are shabby,Greens worse than the 9 hole Resort course,the general condition is very run down and not worth the green fee we paid.

This course has quite obviously had its day.Clubhouse & course is very tatty & looks to be in need of a major upheaval financially.Very expensive at 83€ a round & certainly not worth the price. No marshalls on course to speed up the pace of play,5 hour rounds unacceptable 😡Would not rush back to play here again ☹️
