Amendoeira Golf Resort is located in Alcantarilha, a half an hour ride from Faro airport. It’s a village, with beautiful scenery, but also quite close to the beach, with the nearest at a 10minute drive. But the star of the show is without doubt having 2 of the best golf courses in the Algarve on site.
Make your vacations feel like home. Amendoeira Golf Resort features both apartments and villas which are modern and supplied with home appliances, such as underfloor heating, central vacuum, air conditioning, wi-fi and TV. The bedrooms and living rooms are spacious and sunny, offering the comfort you need for a great stay.
The Clubhouse has a great view over the golf courses, perfect to enjoy a gourmet meal or over drinks.
Enjoy a walk in the extensive green area accompanied by birds chirping or lay by the pool and catch up on that book you’ve been trying to finish for some time now. Amendoeira Golf Resort feels like home and the 270 hectares are like your back garden.
The Faldo Course, as its name would suggest was 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.
In 2016 The Faldo Course won the title of Portugal’s Best Golf Course, given by World Golf Awards.
The O Connor Course was 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.
Our featured offer is based on 4 guests sharing a 2 bedroom apartment but other sizes and styles of accommodation are available – please request details.
