5.0
Oceanico O’Connor Course is rated 5 out of 5 based on 1 verified review from YGT customers.

Spanning the resort’s rich valley land, the O’Connor Course is the perfect complement to Nick Faldo’s more undulating creation. The great Christy was well aware of the natural Algarve terrain, and deliberately carved his course to take full advantage of indigenous features, particularly the stunning orange groves.

Oceanico O'Connor Course

The undisputed highlight of the O’Connor Course is thedesigner’s take on Augusta National’s ‘Amen Corner’ – holes 7, 8 and 9 areskirted at various points by a great lake which snakes its way dangerouslythrough three splendid holes.

Skirted by traditional Moorish buildings, dating back to the13th century, the course’s location is steeped in history, whichonly adds to the drama. O’Connor’s mighty layout builds nicely to a climax withthe phenomenal closing hole, which climbs to a fantastic riverside green.

Like the neighbouring Faldo Course, the O’Connor is anexciting new development that only makes the glorious Algarve more attractivefor visiting golfers, providing a first class championship test in trulystunning surroundings.

O’Connor’s signature hole is the 3rd, a gorgeous Par 3 where players must avoid a waterway which encroaches upon the fairway from the right. With natural wildlife stirring in the background, you must navigate across an undulating green, albeit on a true putting surface so typical of the course's greens throughout the year.

Golfer reviews

We thought the O’Connor course was absolutely brilliant although again it was a tough test with all the water on the course. We particularly like their version of Augusta’s Amen Corner. The course was in immaculate condition and we will be playing it again on our next Algarve golf holiday.
