Amendoeira O’Connor Jnr Course

Info Offers Course Reviews

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.

Oceanico O'Connor Course

The undisputed highlight of the O’Connor Course is the designer’s take on Augusta National’s ‘Amen Corner’ – holes 7, 8 and 9 are skirted at various points by a great lake which snakes its way dangerously through three splendid holes.

Skirted by traditional Moorish buildings, dating back to the13th century, the course’s location is steeped in history, which only adds to the drama. O’Connor’s mighty layout builds nicely to a climax with the phenomenal closing hole, which climbs to a fantastic riverside green.

Like the neighbouring Faldo Course, the O’Connor is an exciting new development that only makes the glorious Algarve more attractive for visiting golfers, providing a first class championship test in truly stunning surroundings.

Course Information

Par 72
Designed by Christy O'Connor Jnr
Opened for play 2008

Tees

Championship 7,336 yards SSS 75
White 6,860 yards SSS 72
Yellow 6,495 yards SSS 75
Blue 6,168 yards SSS 75
Red 5,734 yards SSS 72

Signature Hole: Hole 3, Par 3, 178 yards, SI 15

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.

Oceanico O'Connor Course is ranked as one of the best courses in Portugal

O'Connor Course (Oceanico Amendoeira Resort)

The course was in great condition and playable for all standards of golfers off the tee with wide fairways. The difficulty was it’s length and the greens were well protected by water and bunkers. Most of the approaches were narrow as well. The back nine was generally into a wind which increased the difficulty up another notch. Probably not a course to play if you are a complete beginner. The marshals were friendly but would ask you to pick your ball up and catch up the group in front if you were slow. It didn’t happen to us but some other groups were grumbling about it in the club house. Our four ball rounds took us 4 hours 20mins with waiting on a few holes and the marshals thought we were fast so that gives a guide to the pace of play. The drinks trolley came round twice in the round so we were kept refreshed. A great course and we loved it.

We played the O'Connor for the first time as we had played the Faldo course previously on 2 occasions, this course did not fail with some spectacular holes, it is a bit easier than the Faldo as its flat and you don't have the massive hills to climb, if you have not played this course then give it a go and if you don't want the buggy which is in with the price then its easy walking.
