A championship course in the Algarve

Located in Silves, in the Algarve, the Faldo Amendoeira Golf Course is part of the Amendoeira Golf Resort.

The Faldo Amendoeira Golf Course is a championship course, demanding careful positioning to score well and designed with strategic play in mind. Rocky outcrops, meandering watercourses, views to the distant mountains and orange groves characterise the course. 

Ambition to be the best

Designed by Sir Nick Faldo, this course has a desert-style feel to it. While there are many golf courses in the Algarve, the Faldo Amendoeira Golf Course is one of a kind. Strategic play and difficult approach shots are required, and the wonderful surroundings make for a varied round of golf. 

Course layout

From the opening shot on the elevated tee of the 1st hole, the Faldo Amendoeira Golf Course presents challenges for every golfer.

There are a couple of downhill holes soon after the start, and on the 5th, there is an option for a spectacular shot across the largest lake on the golf course.

The start of the back nine takes the golfer from the high tees to the plain below before the 11th, the shortest hole, heads back to the hills. The 13th presents the highest point on the course, 50m above the plain. Holes 14 and 15 continue to challenge the golfer, with many rocky outcrops.

Finally, the par 5 18th hole asks the golfer to thread the pinch point of bunkers left and right at 265m before the green sits up in an amphitheatre on the hillside, requiring a superb strike to rise up and settle on the green.
