Amendoeira Faldo & O'Connor Courses
Amendoeira Faldo and O'Connor courses are located 35 minutes from Faro airport and just 4 km from Armação de Pera beach resort . It consists of two 18 hole par 72 courses, the Faldo Course and the O'Connor course.
Designed by Sir Nick Faldo with strategic play in mind this 6598m par 72 championship course demands careful positioning to score well. The course has incredible views and beautiful undulating land, with the back nine being quite hilly. Faldo said, "I like my courses to be challenging to whoever plays them. There might be easy holes in some places, but they are a challenge because you have to think about them, and that is what I am after. The best compliment you can get in the design business is when players come off the course and say ’wow, that was a challenge,’ and that’s just what I planned at [this] Golf Resort."
Holes 7, 8 and 9, average length par 4’s, offer a particular challenge as all three run alongside lakes, so golfers’ concentration and accuracy of tee-shots as well as approaches are vital. 3rd and 17th holes are both excellent par 3’s. Christy's 18th hole brings the course to a fantastic finish, a gentle climb with the river running along the right hand side. 'This hole is a humdinger; once you get up here and look down on the golf course, you will feel you have been blessed.'
