Tougher than the O'Connor Course but still playable for the higher handicapper.
Oceanico Faldo Course

Traversing the more undulating ground of the new resort, the Faldo Course is a diverse challenge that will live long in the memory.

Oceanico Faldo Course
The best British player of the modern era has a distinct design philosophy, as he seeks to present a challenge to every player; however, he achieves this not simply through extreme length, but by demanding that the golfer exercises some strategy and thought.
In a throwback to Faldo’s illustrious playing days, the golf course requires patience, prudence and guile, and with an extensive selection of tees, every golfer is well catered for. This prestigious development is a landmark on the Algarve and seems set to become a golf holiday star attraction.

Amazing course. Up there with the best I’ve ever played including old course, gleneagles, castle Stuart etc
Again dependant on tee played,not lots of water ,but very hilly and buggy essential!
long ways between holes but well indicated very difficult course with bush or other grasses before fairways a lot of defenses near greens driving practice excellent
FOlli we'd some slow players took 6 hours.Need to play it once to find out where the trouble is.Second time was better although still tough.
this course was very challenging but enjoyable the more you played the more you learned and enjoyed.
The course was fine - condition good - pace of play was painfully slow ( a real problem) - no on course stewarding either
Don’t let your ego determine which tees you play from. You will get a fair test from the yellows and whites. Unless you are out early expect 5 hours. Buggies essential due to elevation changes between holes.
Course very tough with a lot of elevation changes. Pace of play was terrible 5 hours 40 minutes first round and 5.45 2nd round after playing the first 3 holes in 40 minutes. No rangers in site on either occasion.
Played before and as before found the course excellent and in good condition. You will always need a buggy due to distances to tees and severity of the inclines. A very good layout and a pleasure to play.
A more challenging course than O’Connor Up hill and down dale, buggies a must Great views over golf course and Resort Enjoyed playing it.
This is a difficult course but well worth playing for the experience. Do not attempt to walk as a mountain goat would struggle. Many bunkers and difficult pin positions make this a course for highly competent golfers. Stunning views of the resort and surrounding area from the summit of the Faldo course
First round took 6 hours, too slow, loads of waiting at pretty much every hole.
Unfortunately ridiculously slow. Packed up after 10 holes ( 3 hrs 35 mins) but it is a very good golf venue in good condition.
Apparently the more difficult of the two courses ? Personally didn’t find much difference between them. Both courses excellent. The driving range which serves both courses was very disappointing in that there was so much “green sand” it was difficult to find a decent lie for iron shots.
A great lay-out, some long carries off the tee over danger plus tough approach shots to typically raised & well protected greens. You need to bring your A game to score well on this course!
Superb course, in excellent condition, would definitely play it again very busy so the round took a little longer than normal
A good test tougher than the oconnor but not impossible condition ok can tell played a lot glad to have buggies for this course as lot of walking otherwise
Course was in outstanding condition difficult but fair and fun
A great test of golf, higher handicappers will struggle but the course condition was great.
Beautiful golf course, a tough test but very well thought out. Again in fantastic condition. 6 hour round on the last day was a slight issue, but we enjoyed the sunshine.
Play off the blue tees to hard off the yellow tees
As always a brilliant course and facility
Similar to our experience with the O'Connor course except that the Faldo was definitely harder but a delight to play and we came off totally happy despite both of us scoring well above our handicaps. Again there was little hold up and went round in under 4 hours.
