Faldo Amendoeira Golf


A highly expected course in Portugal!

Located in Silves, the Nick Faldo Golf Course is part of the Oceanico Amendoeira Golf Resort in the Algarve.
The Nick Faldo Algarve is a championship golf course, designed with strategic play in mind.
The Faldo golf course Portugal demands careful positioning to score well. Rocky outcrops, meandering watercourses, views to the distant mountains and orange groves define the essential character of Faldo Golf Course, Algarve.

One of the finest desert-style courses

According to Sir Nick Faldo, "there is a definite feel of Arizona about our Faldo course at Amendoeira resort and this is reflected in the many varied desert-style features that we have incorporated. In terms of strategy, the Oceanico Faldo Golf Course demands – and rewards – a very thoughtful approach; this, coupled with the vastness of the landscape here in Portugal, makes for a dramatic and entirely engaging round of golf.”

The ambition of being the best

As per Nick Faldo, "there are a lot of golf courses in the Algarve, Portugal, but the Faldo Amendoeira course is different to anything else. The Oceanico Faldo Golf Course offers a great colour contrast, from green to terracotta to white bunkers, all under blue skies. The Faldo Algarve golf course looks very impressive."
"I think play these days has become too much a hit it, find it and hit it again routine. The real skill is that when you stand on the tee, the golf hole shows you—tells you—what to do, and if you do what it tells you are rewarded and if you don’t you are penalised."

Some details about the lay-out

From the opening shot on the elevated tee of the 1st, the Algarve Faldo Golf Course will present challenges for everyone.
There are a couple of downhill holes soon after the start, and on the 5th, the option of a spectacular shot across the largest lake on the Amendoeira golf course, Algarve.
The start of the back nine takes the golfer from the high tees to the plain below before the 11th, the shortest hole on the Faldo course, takes him back into the hills. The 13th presents the highest point on the Faldo golf course, 50m above the plain. Holes 14th and 15th of Nick Faldo golf course continue to challenge, playing amongst rocky outcrops. You can expect the back nine to be very hilly.
Finally, the par 5 18th asks the golfer to thread the pinch point of bunkers left and right at 265 m., before the green sits up in an amphitheatre in the hillside 235 m. beyond, requiring a superb strike to rise up and settle on the green.
