Forgiving fairways and receptive greens. Played quite long. The resort had experienced heavy rainfall prior to our visit and bunkers were a little poor
Oceanico O’Connor Course
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.

White: 6860 yards, Par 72, SSS 72

Blue: 6168 yards, Par 72, SSS 75

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.

Course was nice but nothing special.
Very enjoyable course,but dependant on which tees you play off,very hard from yellow and longer
Loved the course was more playable.Condition was great and much quicker round.
this course was slightly easier than Faldo but still very enjoyable.
The course was fine - condition good - pace of play was painfully slow ( a real problem) - no on course stewarding either
Keep on the fairway and it’s straightforward. Pay attention to the course planner. Nice condition and a fun round.
Good course pace of play was better than the Faldo but may have been due to less players on the course. Start delayed due to no buggies due to first out taking 5 hours plus to get round.
Not played the course for several years and the level of service and course condition has gone down. Very slow pace of play and no starter on 1st. Condition of the course was fairly scruffy compared to previous although the greens were still very good. Would give this a miss in future.
Good fairways good greens reasonably forgiving.Complimentary buggies. Enjoyable to play.
Our second round on Thursday 11th Oct was painfully slow. The course was crammed, far too many players on the course which spoiled it for everyone. 6hrs 10 minutes is beyond ridiculous However this is a course which is enjoyable for golfers of all levels
Nice course, no hold ups apart from 1 hole.
We all really enjoyed the course which we were told was the easier of the two. Greens very receptive.
Many of my group actually preferred this course to the Faldo - still has some daunting tee shots & many tough approach shots over or round water, but fairways are a little more generous & were in excellent condition, as were the greens.
Very nice course, in excellent condition, would definitely want to play it again
Nice course for golfers of any standard.Condition was ok can tell it is played a lot.But myself playing off 5 really enjoyed it.
2 great courses
Course was in outstanding condition difficult but fair and fun
The round on day 1 was great as it was a Wednesday, the Friday round took nearly 6 hours due to sheer number of people on the course
The O'Connor course was fantastic, in great condition and a great test. Greens were excellent and it was well maintained
Great course. Great staff . Buggy's were a cock up didn't get last buggy until tee time and therefor no practice .
As above the courses were brilliant. We were probably fortunate that there not many golfers at the time so my wife and I played as a two ball on all three rounds with very little waiting.
