Characteristics

The Nick Faldo Golf Design project at the Amendoeira Golf Resort is an 18-hole, is a championship standard golf course and is designed with strategic play in mind. Nick Faldo, who will be non-playing captain of the GB & Ireland / Europe Ryder Cup team in 2008, is confident that his course is set to become a very special addition to the region’s burgeoning collection of golf courses. The Faldo Amendoeira Golf Course will demand careful positioning to score well. Rocky outcrops, meandering watercourses and views to the distant mountains and orange groves define its essential character.

A challenge

We played the course in early June. The greens were very fast, the fairways were well maintained and the bunkers were in perfect condition (there is enough of that!). If you want a relaxed holiday golf, this is definitely wrong. The course is a real challenge. Since the greens are well guarded by bunkers, they can only be played with a precise iron stroke. Sometimes there are blind holes that cause a surprise. A cart is absolutely necessary as the path between the fairways is quite far. The service is very good and the staff are friendly. The place should definitely play a second time!

Great expectations, big disappointment

We had already played the Faldo Course in January 2017 and found it really nice (5 *). Our anticipation for the round in January 2018 was correspondingly high.

To our great disappointment, the place has presented itself in very poor condition. The fairways were bone-dry, the grass in places completely withered. The sand bunkers were either rock hard or almost sand-free. Even the greens did not live up to their name. We played a number of other courses in the area in the days before and after, but with the exception of the O'Connor course (same resort, same operator) all other courses were better!

Very tough

Extremely demanding place, also in December in very good condition. Often wide carry distances from tea (also yellow and blue), fairways, although mostly open, but well bunkered. The raised, on all sides strongly sloping, undulating greens are always protected by deep bunkers. Scenic nice, but nothing special. Overall, a critical impression predominates: high-quality design is not always fun.
