Algarve: Golf


Benamor Golf Course
Benamor, Tavira

This course is the first golf course to open east of the capital of the Algarve, Faro, and lies just outside of Tavira.
The owning Martins Dias family invited the late Sir Henry Cotton make a concept design for an 18-hole course. Sir Henry was inspired by the beautiful church next to the site of the Clubhouse and by its spectacular location. The final result is a delightful par 71 golf course of 5.500mt (6.100 yards).
The course was official opened in March 2000. This course offers a pleasant experience, to players of all standards. The course is undulating but not hilly. The views of the mountains to the North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South are stunning. The Penn A4 greens and tees are simply superb. The fairways of Bermuda Sahara and cool-season grasses provide good lies for wood and iron shots.
Players accuracy is particularly called upon by the architects retention of as many of the old trees as feasible. These natural obstacles coupled with strategic placed bunkers and occasional water hazards make the course a worthwhile challenge.
This course was selected as the Best Maintained Course for 2001 by the Portuguese Golf Federation.
