Course Information

Immerse yourself in the strategic brilliance of the Nick Faldo Golf Course, a Par 72 championship marvel sprawled across the captivating landscape near the village of Amendoeira. Designed with meticulous consideration for strategic play by the legendary Sir Nick Faldo, this 6578m course demands precision and careful positioning to achieve a score worth boasting about.

The Amendoeira terrain, deemed dramatic by Faldo himself during his visit in 2007, offers a modern twist to the traditional golfing experience. Cacti and wild herbs replace the heather found at Sunningdale, while spartan Holm oaks and ancient olive trees take center stage instead of the lush English woodland. Desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace Berkshire’s sandy tracts, creating a course that embraces the classic principles of strategic play.

Recognised for its excellence, the Faldo Course earned the prestigious title of Portugal’s Best Golf Course in 2016, awarded by the esteemed World Golf Awards. Amidst the plethora of courses in the Algarve region, the Faldo Course stands out as a true talking point, a testament to its unique design and challenges.

As you traverse the 18 holes, the course unveils a picturesque tapestry of rocky areas, meandering watercourses, and panoramic views of the distant Monchique mountains. Ancient olive trees and orange groves add character, creating an unforgettable backdrop to your golfing experience.

The journey begins with a testing uphill Par 4 on the first hole, offering risk and reward opportunities that set the tone for the round. The fourth hole introduces a downhill Par 5, featuring a meandering watercourse that comes into play on multiple front and inward nine holes. The inward nine, known for sparking conversations among the 19th hole cognoscenti, presents challenges like the massive descending fairway of the Par 5 13th hole, demanding consistent shot-making against the wind.

Holes 14 and 15 continue to captivate golfers, weaving through rocky outcrops that add an extra layer of complexity. Leaving the high ground to the west, the 18th hole provides a magnificent conclusion, a Par 5 that brings the game to a close with flair. Experience golf at its finest on the Nick Faldo Golf Course, where every swing is a strategic masterpiece, and every hole tells a story of skill and precision.
