Penina Championship


A pioneer project in the Algarve

Situated in the heart of the Algarve, Portimao, the Penina Championship Golf Course is considered the most brilliant project of Sir Henry Cotton, triple champion of the British Open.
Back in 1966, the Cotton was one of the first to recognize the Algarve’s huge potential as a golfing destination.
Following his instincts, Sir Henry's vision was "natural", he was fascinated by the great all-year round climate coupled with the sheer beauty of the Algarve, in Portugal.
With the Penina Golf course, Sir Cotton conceived a layout, which would - after the introduction of thousands of trees and bushes - become transformed.
The unprecedented boom which followed that pioneering step resulted today in the existence of over 40 golf courses in the Algarve, Portugal.

A challenging course

The Penina Golf Course is a fairly flat parkland type course flanked by streams, water hazards and precarious ditches. The course boasts an array of subtle slopes with wide and raised greens, well known for catching out even the most careful of golfers. That makes Penina a real championship golf course.

Main characteristics of Penina Course

A major revitalisation programm in 2004/2005 refreshed the Penina Golf Course to stay on the highest level of quality. Penina Championship Course is characterised by an unusual grouping of par-5's, with four of them arranged together in pairs at the beginning and end of the back nine.
Of all the Penina's par-3, the most memorable is the 13th - voted one of the best 500 holes in the world! The hole presents its own, particular challenge. A lake borders the right-hand side, coming into play off the back tees, while the sloping green is guarded to the front and left by a pair of bunkers.

Prestigious tournaments

The Penina Golf Course has hosted the "Portugal Open" 9 times, the last 5 hosts being in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2004 and 2006.
Many other prestigious society events have contributed to the Penina golf course fame.
