Sir Henry Cotton design

The owning Martins Dias family invited the late Sir Henry Cotton make a concept design for an 18-hole course in Benamor, Algarve. Sir Henry was inspired by the beautiful church next to the site of the Clubhouse and by its spectacular location. The final result is the delightful Benamor golf course, par 71, of 5500 m.

Tavira Golf Course

The Benamor Golf Course lies just outside of Tavira, in Barrocal, Algarve. Benamor Golf offers a pleasant playing experience, to players of all standards. The course is undulating but not hilly. The views of the mountains to the North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South are stunning. The indigenous olive, cork, carob, fig and almond trees, many centuries old, feature aesthetically and in playing terms.

At Benamor Golf course, you will have to use your most accurate shots to avoid the trees that have been retained.

Water hazards and sand bunkers at Benamor are located to test the strategy and striking ability of the player. The Penn A4 greens and tees are simply superb. The fairways of Bermuda Sahara and cool-season grasses provide good lies for wood and iron shots.
