Oceanico Faldo Course

Nick Faldo’s brand new project at Amendoeiro is set to become one of the most sought after courses in the golf-rich Algarve, predominantly thanks to the shewd design of Europe’s Ryder Cup captain. 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.

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.

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

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!

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.
