Course Information

Pioneering a golfing revolution in the Algarve, the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course stands as the inaugural 18-hole course of its kind in the region, leaving an indelible mark on the global golfing landscape. Conceived and completed by the visionary Sir Henry Cotton in 1966, this course is a testament to both golfing architecture and one man’s profound passion for the sport.

As Sir Henry embarked on transforming the Algarve’s paddy fields into a golfing haven, the monumental impact of his vision unfolded, setting the stage for a legacy that continues to captivate the world. The extent of this legacy was, perhaps, beyond even the foresight of this former championship golfer.

Initiating a stunning metamorphosis in the Southern Algarve, Sir Henry introduced thousands of trees and shrubs, reshaping the landscape into a verdant, lush expanse ideal for the game of golf. This inaugural project sparked the sprouting of an additional 30 courses across the region, with more yet to come.

As the towering pines and eucalyptus trees matured, they bestowed the course with a distinctive character, unrivaled across the entire Algarve peninsula.

Behind this transformative vision stands Sir Henry Cotton, a three-time British Open Champion, who clinched victory with an extraordinary 65 in 1934, earning the prestigious honor of having Dunlop christen a ball after him—the ’65’. A man most at home in the Algarve, Sir Henry, driven by a desire to create a realm of year-round golf, has left an enduring legacy that continues to bring joy to golf enthusiasts worldwide.
