Amendoeira Golf Resort is home to two stunning championship golf courses, both designed by legendary names in golf - Sir Nick Faldo and Christy O'Connor Jnr. Each course is of contrasting design and will offer a challenge to both professional and amateur golfers. The Oceanico Faldo Course has been designed with strategic play in mind and demands careful positioning to score well; rocky outcrops, meandering watercourses and views to the distant mountains and orange groves define its essential character. The Oceanico O'Connor Jnr. course perfectly complements the Faldo course whilst taking advantage of the rich valley soil in contrast to the arid hillside. It is a course which offers no less of a challenge: large areas of water demand accurate play and creative shot making with the lakes and streams being maintained as a wildlife sanctuary.

From fine dining in a Michelin Star Restaurant to simply tasting a nice glass of wine by the seaside, you can't go wrong in Algarve. From modern and sophisticated to typical and delicious, we have plenty of suggestions for you.
Over the years Algarve has been winning a legion of fans that goes far beyond the borders of the country, not only for the beauty of its beaches and the country's quietness , but also due to the expansion of fine dining. Such an evolution often brings the possibility of mixing typical ingredients and dishes, such as fresh fish and daily caught seafood, the refinement of a meal thought to the smallest details. Find here some restaurants that have been awarded a coveted Michelin Guide Star.
Being a coastal country has many advantages, one being the freshness of the sea products that reach Portuguese tables. Algarve, for centuries, relied on fishing and farming as its first economical activities and, with the rise of tourism, restaurants multiplied and started incorporating the best ingredients the sea and land around them have to offer. Discover ahead some gastronomic experiences you mustn't miss in Algarve, including tasting some local pastries.
The good weather and fertile land make a great combination for growing ideal grapes to produce wine. Fortunately, here in Algarve, you can find both easily. Wine tasting experiences go from simply tasting a glass of wine by sea front, to day programmes at local winneries.
In Amendoeira Golf Resort you can surely relax but you can also get ahead on your sport practicing in our very complete Sports Club. Discover ahead what you can expect to find here.
Our two golf courses, as well as being award winning ones, are also perfectly arranjed to offer you the best experience while playing. Faldo Course and O’Connor Jnr. Course both have 18 holes and were designed by world renowned golf players, representing an interesting challenge surrounded by a beautiful landscape. For beginners, there is also a 9 hole course in the golf academy, ideal to learn how to take that perfect swing. If you’re aiming for Algarve golf holidays, this is the place for you.
Designed by Sir Nick Faldo with strategic play in mind this 6598m Par 72 championship course demands careful positioning to score well.
"The land at Amendoeira is dramatic and the project has the potential to be a real talking point in the Algarve. With so many courses in the region, that's no mean feat", pointed out Nick Faldo, during his visit in 2007.
In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of Sunningdale's heather, spartan Holm oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of a lush English woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace Berkshire’s sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play.
Faldo Course won, in 2016, the title of Portugal’s Best Golf Course, given by World Golf Awards.
Designed by Christy O'Connor Jnr., this course complements the neighbouring Faldo Course and also takes full advantage of being situated in a fertile valley. Its various water features, both lakes and watercourses that are spread throughout the entire course, demand accuracy and test from all golfers, and the rich topsoil has been skillfully landscaped and planted with mature palm trees, affording a lush, ornamental setting like an extensive oasis.
This course has tees that are generally connected to the fairways, but its greater overall distance, the water hazards and big greens provide its challenge. Golfers must also be prepared to read the subtly contoured putting surfaces that are strong features.
The 9 hole Academy course is the only illuminated 9 hole golf course in Portugal. It is located between the Faldo Course and the O'Connor Jnr. course is ideally suited for beginners and those who wish to sharpen up their short game. It has been built to the same high standards as the Faldo Course and O'Connor Jnr. course.
Three teeing options vary the line of play into each hole and maximize every hazard designed into the green complex. The 7th is the feature hole on the course, where two of the teeing options play over water.
The 9 hole Academy course will become a sure favorite with the whole family and a must to play alongside its big brothers.
Amendoeira Golf Resort can offer you the ideal tennis holiday, with 6 Savannah Tennis courts at your service. More information here.
