Nick Faldo Golf Course, designed by Nick Faldo, with strategic play in mind, this golf course demands careful positioning to score well, rocky outcrops, meandering watercourses and views to the distant mountains and orange groves defining its essential character.|Faldo golf course opens with a testing uphill, Par-4, offering a number of 'risk reward' opportunities.The downhill, Par-5, fourth encounters a meandering watercourse, which comes into play on three of the front 9 holes and two on the back niine.The inward 9 holes include several, blind holes which will become the talking point of the '19th hole cognoscenti'. Faldo golf course offers a serious testing for the mid low handicap players, and can be a serious nightmare for beginners. In all Faldo golf course needs to be played more then once to give any player a chance of a good score.
A little untidy in areas such as footpaths and roads. Fairways and Greens excellent
The bunkers were in very poor condition and the course was too full, waiting at every tee box. Over 5 and half hours to get round.
Wonderful golf course, in great condition. Great facilities and helpful staff. Sadly let down by their inability to pick up our group as they offered/arranged which meant having to change our tee time by 2 hours, which wasn't really suitable, but had no choice really.
Nice course and good condition. Not in the same league as the “big courses” in the Alrgarve. First hole uninspiring so don’t be put off.
+ overall a very nice and a good course, but… - really bad bunkers! No sand, wet and some grass, why?? Easy to fill up with sand.. - the ball cleaners completely without water. Badly!
Course was great. The bar service in the clubhouse was slow and they forgot part of the order.
Great course in good condition but some of the bunkers were shabby
Staff were ok but not very friendly
Fabulous set up. Course fab, Clubhouse super, Pro-shop fantastic ....but SLOW!!!! 8 min tee times aren't working, sort the 6 hour round out and i'll be back!!!
The initial contact at the desk was not very friendly however the starter was fantastic. Same at Penha. Course was breathtaking but a bit dry and the traps were marginal. No GPS in the buggies and there’s some guessing on shots
