Amendoeira Faldo Course

Published by Golf’s Greatest Holes on 25 April 2023

Designed by Sir Nick Faldo with strategic play in mind this 6578m Par 72 championship course demands careful positioning to score well.

In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of Sunningdale’s heather, spartan Holm oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of a lush English woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace Berkshire’s sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play.

Chris leaves Paul for the afternoon and heads off to play the course. He plays the 13th hole, a long par 5, on this prestigious course in the Algarve.
