Penina Championship

Penina Championship

Par: 73

Length: 6273m


Course designer: Henry Cotton

Venue: Portuguese Open

Penina Championship

The 18-hole Penina Championship Course features holes which are crossed and flanked by a series of streams, ditches and water hazards, demanding precisely executed shots.

The course is beautifully maintained, winding past tall stands of eucalyptus and clumps of palms to mainly elevated greens which have subtle slopes and sometimes treacherous speeds.

The memorable par-three 13th has been voted one of the best 500 holes in the world and requires a long carry over water to a green guarded by sand.

The course is characterised by an unusual grouping of the par-5's, with four of the five arranged together in pairs at the beginning and end of the back nine producing a par of 38 as opposed to 35 for the front nine.

Penina also offers a 1,850m nine-hole par-30 Academy Course for players to sharpen their skills on before or after their rounds on the Resort and Championship courses!

Penina Resort

Penina Resort

Par: 71

Length: 5964m


Course designer: Henry Cotton

Penina Resort

Penina’s Resort Course is a strategically demanding 9-hole course with 18 tees designed along the same principles as the Penina Championship course.

The course features a number of lakes and sand hazards making it an enjoyable course that tests the skills of all abilities.

Holes 1, 2 and 3 are all tree-lined dogleg par 4's where keeping to the fairway is a definite advantage. The only par-5 is the 499m 5th hole, long and straight with an elevated green, a typical Penina feature.

The par 4 6th hole, with out of bounds to the right, requires a precise drive through a narrow avenue of tall trees, whereas the drive on the dogleg 7th needs to be a controlled draw followed by an approach steered left of a greenside lake that is too close to the green for comfort.

A long par 3 with many bunkers and a long par 4 finish this pleasant course.

Penina Golf Resort also offers a 1,850m nine-hole par-30 Academy Course for players to sharpen their skills on before or after their rounds on the Resort and Championship courses!

Palmares

Palmares

Par: 71

Length: 5961m


Course designer: Robert Trent Jones Jr.

Palmares

The redesigned Palmares (completed in 2010) golf course features 27 holes of parkland and traditional links.

“Palmares Golf Course is special on so many levels. The expansive ocean vistas, dramatic elevation changes, intimate valleys, and expansive dunes gave us an environment from which we could craft a golf course with enormous depth of character and challenge”. Robert Trent Jones Jr

Each nine-hole course has its own character:

Lagos Course – features the only two lakes of the layout at the short par 3 third and long par 4 sixth. The final holes are played into the expansive dunes on the southwest portion of the layout.

Praia Course – set alongside the seaside dunes with full exposure to all of the elements! The four seaside holes are bracketed by the beach and railway line, with the closing hole rising out of the dunes onto an amphitheatre green below the clubhouse.

Alvor Course – a parkland layout played through narrow fairways lined with mature pine trees. The majority of the holes feature dramatic elevation changes either ascending hillside or descending through valleys.

Palmares has hosted a variety of amateur and professional events including the Europro Tour circuit.

Boavista Golf

Boavista Golf

Par: 71

Length: 5737m


Course designer: Howard Swan

Boavista Golf

Boavista Golf Club offers superb facilities in a uniquely sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere.

The golf course has been designed to incorporate and preserve the area's natural terrain. The first hole is a downhill par-4, bordered by beautiful sub-tropical landscaping.

The signature hole is the stunning par-4, 7th hole, set against a glorious backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean with panoramic views extending from Praia da Luz to the hills at Monchique.

Espiche Golf

Espiche Golf

Par: 72

Length: 5862m


Course designer: Peter Saureman

Espiche Golf

Respect for the traditions of golf and the natural environment were the inspiration behind the layout of the Espiche Golf course and the result has been one that offers a true challenge for golfers of all levels.

Set within unspoilt undulating countryside, the greens and fairways of the course have been carefully placed to balance the dual demands of the golfer and the environment, with indigenous planting throughout creating a beautiful backdrop and some challenging obstacles.

Bunkers guard most greens while the greens themselves are large and undulating, demanding a soft hand with the putter. Espiche is a shot-maker’s course where each hole poses a new challenge thanks to the variety of the layout.

The par five 1st, dropping some 80 feet from the tee before rising back to the same height at the green, gives golfers an insight into the style of golf at Espiche. The par five 10th is one of the finest in the Algarve and challenges golfers to negotiate the progressively tighter fairway as they approach the green.

Golfers are pushed to take risks with their game at Espiche Golf, with rich rewards for those who make the most of their golfing skills and judge the course best.

Espiche Golf is different, not only thanks to its location within a national park above an ancient aquifer, but also in the underlying ethos behind the management of every aspect of the club. We believe that the future of the game lies in making it sustainable for upcoming generations. To achieve this, we have used cutting edge science and technology to create a course that reflects our duel passions for golf and environmental conservation.
