It's clear all the attention gets placed on the Faldo course. The condition certainly isn't as good. The tee boxes are really scruffy with weeds everywhere and some of the greens need attention. It was a fun course to play though. The other immediate action the resort needs to take on both courses is the bunkers. There's no sand in any of them. We started using them as GUR, as they were like a hazard and impossible to play out.
Reasons to Visit Amendoeira O’Connor Jnr Course
Designed by Christy O’Connor Jnr, the Irish legend who defeated Fred Couples in the Ryder Cup
Ranked within the the Top 100 Courses in the whole of Portugal
Located in Silves, at the centre of the Algarve and only 30 minutes from Faro
Spanning the resort’s rich valley land, the O’Connor Jnr 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.
