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.

Described as the championship course of the two but besides various contours on most of the greens compared to the secondary course it wasn't much different or a great deal harder than I imagined it to be and our group of mixed handicaps felt the same. Don't get me wrong both these courses are great and a good challenge of golf and certainly different than playing back home in the UK. Greens similarly slow as the secondary course.

Depending on the day of week dictates the speed of play. Friday afternoon and Saturday were very slow (5+ hours). The rest of the week was great as it was quieter (4 hours for a fourball). Buggies are required. The course layout is stunning with some beautiful holes. Only downside is some of the bunkers need work. Anti weed fabric showing through and can affect the shot as the sand can be minimal. Greens are terrific and both pin placements and tee boxes alternate giving a completely different experience.

If you can't hit a good tee shot to carry trees & bushes you are going to struggle!! we played from white tees on first round but changed to yellows for next two rounds when we realised whites were for handicaps 9 & under. Although still hard, this made the course easier. An excellent challenging golf course every golfer should play!!

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.
