Penina Golf Club
Opened in 1966, and designed by Sir Henry Cotton, Penina Golfs Championship Course was the first golf course built in the Algarve. The par 73 Championship course has been host to the Portuguese Open 9 times as well as the European Seniors Match Play Championship. The Resort Course is a full length 9 hole course (par 35), very similar in layout to the Championship course, and the Academy course is a par 30 executive course.

Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course:
Originally built on rice paddies, the 6439 metre long course is generally quite flat, and is set amongst mature trees and shrubs, with each of the fairways lined with tall trees. As well, drainage ditches help to define the fairways, and in some places act as tricky water hazards. There is only one par 5 on the front nine, with four on the back.
