Amendoeira O’Connor Jnr. - latest comments and reviews

Bryan Crowley 2024-05-05
5 hour round is too long. No course ranger.

Martin Punch 2024-04-20
Excellent course but 5 hours in a buggy with no on course Marshall to keep pace of play

Søren Rasmussen 2024-03-31
Bad around greens

Richard Turner 2024-02-28
Course not in as good condition as normal and service level not as good. Eg. No bag drop

Paul Toner 2024-02-17
Course was very busy - almost 5 hour round. Nothing you guys can do about it. Great course but very tricky green's. Good day overall.

Andrew Gerrard 2024-01-18
Enjoyable experience. Not enough car park spaces

Niall O Shea 2023-12-07
Staff in the Resturant were excellent, the course was in good condition but the bunkers are a disgrace, no sand at all and the base liner is coming through, how can it be so difficult to put sand in the bunkers

Stuart Robinson 2023-10-27
Amendoeira always provides a consistent quality every time we visit the Algarve. A few things to note this year range balls in the machine however this was quickly resolved by the team and free balls handed out to all those waiting. Wild Boars have/are tearing up certain areas of the course. The greens had not been cut or the dew whiffed away the morning we played which was disappointing and we never saw the refreshments cart during the 5hr round. The O'Connor was in OK condition which in hindsight was much better than way more expensive courses we played later that week. A solid 7/10 and a good addition to any golf trip.

Marc Luthi 2023-10-26
Great golf course, but no clubhouse!

Brigitte Müller 2023-10-22
it takes to much time, to much waiting time. Service at the reception of the golf club not friendly at all. And nowadays you have to bring your gofbag down to the buggies youself and it is quiet a walk to go there. Very bad service. Food in the restaurant and service is not good anymore. One can feel the new management of the whole thing and it is not positive.

Euan Esslemont 2023-10-17
Course was nice, but affected by lack of water. Good facilities.

Daniel Wyss 2023-10-13
A spacious course in good condition. Certainly number 2 compared to the partner course and also a bit easier to play.

Paul Tolley 2023-10-06
Good service in all areas. Good course but tees and especially bunkers were poor.

Anthony Creedon 2023-09-14
The course has gone down in the last few years since I played it last. Tee boxes were in very poor condition overgrown with weeds. With scutch grass growing through the normal grass. Fairways fair and greens not too bad. Overall it is not up to standard. Clubhouse and general staff a bit nonchalant. Overall I wont be back to either Faldo or o'Connor and I would not recommend either at the price.

Ian Beattie 2023-08-28
Course, greens and tees to a high standard, was the best of the 4 courses we played, one negative was the beer was off, unusually for us no-one finished their pint

Marc Thys 2023-07-22
Greens in excellent condition. Poor tee areas. Course maintenance not great. Very nice clubhouse, good club sandwiches.

Stephane Castella 2023-07-19
Fairways and greens in good condition but tee box in pretty bad shape. I liked the course (1st visit) and would consider playing there again. GPS on buggy was not working and it seems the case on all buggies. Quite a shame.

Stewart Thorpe 2023-07-14
Still a very good course and we both loved playing it

Chris Bax 2023-07-05
Nice track. Flat, very playable. Greens a bit slow but good

Roger Moyse 2023-06-18
Very impressive course and facilities.

Gareth Toms 2023-06-13
The course and greens were excellent but some of the bunkers were poor

John Brouwer 2023-06-10
The course is nice and well maintained but it took us more than 5 hours to complete our round. No Marshall on the course to speed up to groups of slow playing youngsters in front of us

Neil Elliott 2023-06-04
Green’s excellent a bit tired elsewhere

Mark Wilkinson 2023-05-07
Typical resort course, not one you would play weekly

Michael FitzPatrick 2023-04-25
Good toughwell designed and mintained golf course everyone in the group liked it. Service attitude of staff not good. The admin staff were fine at checkin. The restaurant sfaff did not show any interest in good service.

Jean-Louis Thiébaut 2023-04-14
I did not not like it. To difficult. You have to be very long to get on the fairways even from the red tees. I was injured on the tee 2….

Alistair Smith 2023-04-13
One of my favourite courses but the bunkers were in very poor condition hard packed with very little sand. Also no bag drop facility which used to be available here

Neil Rodgerson 2023-04-12
Wonderful course. Greens great, but the bunkers are the same as the Faldo. Desperate for some attention. Letting the courses down badly.

Gregory Mackay 2023-04-02
Only comment is tee boxes very shabby

Paul Heffernan 2023-04-02
Poor driving range experience and buggies only 10 minutes before tee time

Paul Bailey 2023-03-15
Great course. Client care is dreadful

Thomas Braemer-Jensen 2023-03-01
Greens and tees are nice, but fairways are in very bad shape atm

Gareth Voyle 2023-02-18
Everywhere we have been on the Algarve people are so friendly - not so at Amendoeira! Why are the staff here so miserable? Course very good again though

Kevin Burke 2023-01-27
Frost delayed things but greens very fast and true

Philippe Pineau 2023-01-20
O’Connor Jnr course is in good condition. Except for the bunkers: Need sand and rakes. Parking full, had to park very far from clubhouse. The ladies were not happy the toilet between holes 5 and 6 was locked.

Philippe Pineau 2022-12-02
Amendoeira O’Connor is a nice course with good practice facilities. However, be aware the driving range close at 12h sharp. Even if you still have half a dozen balls to hit, the range attendant will not allow you and take the balls away! Currently you cannot hit from the grass, only from the mat, where you can’t use a tee.

William Cooper 2022-11-17
The course is great but some of the staff are unhelpful and grumpy.

William Cooper 2022-11-17

Dietmar Bohnenstengel 2022-11-06
In Former years the Course was in a netter condition

John Haughey 2022-10-24
An excellent course. Glad we had the included buggies.

John Barron 2022-10-24
Very enjoyable round of golf on a good course and the staff were very helpful too.

Mark Schmitz 2022-10-24
Long waiting time (50 minutes) before start cause of not enough buggies :-(

David Coleman 2022-10-22
An early start but the course was excellent. A very good experience.

Lauermann Andreas 2022-10-17
Always a great place to be

Gerry McKenna 2022-10-11

Ian Steele 2022-10-06
The course is a very good test, especially the back 9. Course in great condition tees, fairways and greens. Absolutely no complaints

Steve Graham 2022-09-12
Good challenge, greens good, tee boxes a little tired

Brendan Forde 2022-09-08
Not many negatives on these courses. Staff where very good ..

Neil Brady 2022-08-29
Bus collection in the morning was 20 minutes late and had to make a few phone call, but the course itself was superb.

Aart-Jan Smit 2022-08-09
Great service, beautifull course. Really enjoyed a great round of golf with the family.

Eammon Ryan 2022-08-02
Great course. Well laid out and a fair test of golf.

James Robinson 2022-08-02
Really enjoyable round. Thank you

Paul Antony Chapman 2022-07-28
Excellent experience and service from booking to first tee. Clubhouse and on course hospitality was first rate also.

Eamonn Ryan 2022-07-21
Very enjoyable round. Course in excellent condition!

Paul Stevens 2022-07-17
Our third visit here. Good quality course and a nice easy starter.

Stuart Montgomery 2022-07-02
Vastly improved condition since last played in January. Greens predominantly true with just a few patches on a few greens where they need further growth. Clubhouse facilities were the expected standard for a complex of this stature.

Gareth Toms 2022-06-27
Great course, good condition

Rob Webb 2022-06-26
Course is in good condition. Well maintained. Some tricky holes make for an interesting round.

Liz Scully 2022-06-26
Excellent course

Joe Egan 2022-06-25
Very enjoyable day at Amendoeira O'connor Jnr course today.

Nigel Lander 2022-06-25
Wonderful day out, good company, challenging course and a lovely sunny day with a little breeze to keep the temperature down..

David Stubbings 2022-06-23
Course good tees a bit scruffy

J.P. Visser 2022-06-20
Lovely course. Very long as specialy when the wind is aganst you. Greens where slow but in good condition

Roland Streule 2022-05-31
Looks somehow run-down. Lack of maintenance. Impolite service.

Douglas Glover 2022-05-24
Great day at Amondiera

Adrian Brown 2022-05-22
Good breakfast and greens very good but tees need cutting and bunkers not well maintained

Barbara McGuinness 2022-05-11
Loved the course in top condition

nguyen phuong loan 2022-05-05
nice course

William Robertson 2022-05-02
Beautiful course, helpful, pleasant staff(especially the starter) but let down by incorrectly programmed satnav on buggy. Stuck for an hour on hole 15 on O’ Connor course with buggy refusing to go forward on buggy path and no alternative route possible. Hence 5 and a half hour round, lost all rhythm and the Will to live.

Ronan Doyle 2022-05-02
Super course. Bunkers could do with softer sand but excellent otherwise

richard turner 2022-04-22
Very slow round. Greens good but rest of course a bit scruffy compared to the past. No club pick up now.

Adrian Fraser Jones 2022-04-22
Really enjoyed the course

Arno Sinjewel 2022-04-21
Gert good

John Ormsby 2022-04-13

Mr Nigel Blake 2022-03-31
Nice course, very flat. not as good as the Faldo.

Stuart Russell smith 2022-01-19
To many people playing 5+ hour round nit great

Stuart Montgomery 2022-01-18
I had booked 2x 3 balls and the course had amended to a 4 and a 2 and insisted on an extra buggy fee when they are advertised as complimentary - poor start. The course was in poor condition with obvious signs of neglect to greens, palms and bunkers. It’s been a financially tough time for golf in the Algarve and this course hasn’t faired well.

Greg Wilde 2021-10-25
Course in good condition. But clubhouse facilities weren’t great with the toilets needing a clean and no soap!

David Thomas 2021-10-10
Great golf course.

Brian Beggs 2021-09-22
Have played this course many times clearly there is a distinct lack of financial investment on the course. Manifested in the poor condition of the tee boxes and the bunkers. Greens however were in good condition.

Owen White 2021-09-22
The course itself is challenging but fair. Great layout and very enjoyable. Unfortunately the bunkers and some areas of the course have been neglected and are not up to the standard they should be. Buggy's were not available right away and our Tee Time was delayed. To many groups out on the course that made the round very slow. We played the last three holes in darkness. No marshals on the course to speed up play. Explanation given by a staff member was management incompetence and lack of staff.

Mark Hughes 2021-06-10
Today was my first time playing Amendoeira. It was part of an excellent package offered by - five rounds, two at Palmares (see previous review) and three at Amendoeira (2 at O’Connor 1 at Faldo). I usually play solo, but was paired with another couple which was fine and turned out to be very useful! The O’Connor JNR course is in good condition tee boxes, fairways and greens (in particular). The package included buggies for the three rounds at Amendoeira which was a bonus. The buggies have a GPS touch screen in them showing the layout of the hole, positions of the bunkers and water hazards. They also has a clever system that will automatically stop the buggy if you go too close to the fringes or hazards! They also supply a cool box with bottles of water included, which was a nice touch. The couple I played with had had quite a few rounds here and gave me some useful pointers on where position shots etc which helped a lot as this was my first round here. The course overall, is good fun with some interesting holes where local knowledge is a must! The greens are quite big generally, however a few have quite steep drop offs, so any wayward approach shots can be quite heavily punished! The clubhouse is good and modern.There is a pro shop just to the left of the reception and the bar terrace makes an excellent spot for post round refreshments, with excellent views over the course, again expect to pay golf club prices for food and drinks. Practice facilities are also available. I’ve always fancied playing Palmares & Amendoeira (after playing Faldo later in my trip) but the green fees always seemed a bit steep, but thanks to the excellent package I can now cross these off my list of courses to play in the Algarve! Ps there is a drinks buggy operating on the course which is quite handy given the current temperatures!

Rita Bowkett 2020-11-08
A fabulous course.. I was hoping for the food/drink cart to come around and was disappointed that it never arrived.

Rita Bowkett 2020-11-08
A fabulous course..

Rachael Goldsmith 2020-11-07
Really enjoyed the course

Neil Macklin 2020-11-07
Ok ..T boxes were better .. not bad an improvement from last time I played there .. still rather expensive compared to other courses ..

Marie Stradling 2020-10-04
The fairways were very good, but the tee boxes for both men and women were unacceptable. They consisted of either bare sand or weeds! At 70 Euros a round, it’s not good value, and in my opinion overpriced.

Pablo Heredia 2020-08-20
Excelent golf course and very good maintenance

John Gilchrist 2020-02-15
Enjoyed the golf and the company.

Simon Goldsmith 2020-02-03
Excellent day, course in good condition especially fairways. Greens a little slow and wooly but very true. Nice touch to include range balls within green fee. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was of excellent quality and reasonably priced but beers were very expensive. Thanks for a very enjoyable day.

Halper Johannes 2020-02-03
The Course was not so good

Steve Bassi 2020-01-27
Slightly better than the Faldo but disappointing compared to previous years

Stan carter 2020-01-26
Nice course and clubhouse. Nice meal after. Very relaxing day

Paolo Fox 2020-01-26
Played the Faldo course and couldn’t fault it. Found the blind holes a bit tough but only because I’ve not played the course before.

Keith Ellis 2020-01-21
Enjoyed the course - in good condition

Keith taylor 2020-01-19
Excellent service

James Tannett 2019-12-13
From drop off to collecting your clubs at the end - faultless. Got a range token too!! Clubs on buggy ready to go. Quite windy and a lot of water = many lost balls, however still enjoyable. Fairways excellent. Greens seemed slow but still good. Well placed shots required. Recommend yes, play again yes

Andy Robinson 2019-12-07
An Excellent golf

Simon Richardson 2019-12-05
Course in good condition. Clubhouse facilities very good, staff very helpful and great service

Tomas Daul 2019-11-25
great course

M Santiago Dos Santos 2019-11-22
Very challenging and well kept course. Worth to try.

Marcus WILLIAMSON 2019-10-08
The organisation at O'Connor course was very although staff were very apologetic. They were having to wait for buggies to be returned before sending out next players.

Simon 2019-10-02
If ever a course needed rain it's this one. Your literally able to take your club of choice anywhere in the water hazards as their non existent. What a shame

Brian Haystead 2019-09-26
Fantastic course in great condition Every hole interesting free buggie Clubs collected on arrival will definitely play again

William Townson 2019-08-29
The ''second'' course is just as much a challenge as the Faldo. A range of challenges require fairways to be hit . Varied design. Greens were top dressed which slowed them down, perhaps some advance notice could be issued...still full price. However got out early and enjoyed the views , the holes and experience. Clubs taken to the buggy, and back. 31c required a cold towel at the end which was most welcome!

Murray Armstrong 2019-08-29
We ended up playing the Faldo Course after receiving advice from the receptionist. It was very good. A challenge and we took a buggy, which we certainly needed. A beautiful spot and we may return to play the O'Connor course in the next week or so.

Andrew Slavin 2019-08-28
Great service from the team at Amendoeira from start to finish, including the provision of an extra buggy at no extra cost, which was solely for the purpose of the makeup of our visiting party. This was very welcome and yet was entirely unexpected A great day out- many thanks

chris ball 2019-08-27
Clubhouse and service was fantastic. Bunkers need fresh sand. Greens in great condition

Alex Morgan 2019-08-18
Stunning course, challenging but forgiving on some holes.

Andrew Bowers 2019-07-31
The golf course was lovely and the staff were great. All went well especially as I did not receive my voucher from teetimes but Amendoeira let us play anyway and said they would contact you for me.

Andy Bryant 2019-07-30
Fabulous course, excellent customer service from everyone we dealt with. Can;t wait to play there again

lynda makin 2019-07-24
Great service, very attentive. Meet and greet you as soon as you arrive. Some nice touches, with the interactive buggies and water on ice in the cooler box

Michael Leahy 2019-06-25
Course in general is not maintained as well as it used to be. Because of its location Amendoeira requires to be a bit special. there is better value to be got elsewhere (based on rack rates).

Robert Craig Rea 2019-06-10
superb course. golf was very slow but marshall did their very best to fix the issues with groups in front

Mr Padraig Mcgoldrick 2019-06-07
We had a excellent day. Thank you

Clive Davis 2019-06-04
Excellent condition and good value for money.

Ian Price 2019-05-31
Brilliant attention to detail and course was a fair test for the mid range handicaper

Frank Ponsioen 2019-05-28
Beautiful course, wide and Some water.

Andy Chambers 2019-04-20
Great day. Met some really friendly society members. Will sign up for more rounds and join up

Eamonn Ryan 2019-04-20
One of the best courses in the Algarve. Very enjoyable.

Ross Blackadder 2019-04-04
Enjoyed the course better than the faldo course. Although first 11 holes seemed to be in to the wind, it was still an okay challenge of the yellow tees. Again, infrastructure is in need of attention, tee boxes, paths etc, but they are all working hard on it. The greens were huge and in great nick. Lots of water around, but not necessarily a huge problem if you are clever. Lots of area to land your driver, so all in all good fun.

Trevor Swift 2019-03-06
Good course in decent condition. Pretty tough in s stiff wind though.

Acacio do Carmo 2019-02-13
Parcours plaisant demandant moins d’effort physique que le Faldo

Robert Burgess 2019-02-03
Lovely course very tough challenging holes.

Robert Lentell 2019-01-29
Very good enjoyable golf with friendly staff. Brilliant value with the winter special deal.

Nick Fry 2019-01-20
Layout good & generous off tee. Course & Greens poor. Statilite on buggies didn’t give yardages. Overall a bit disappointing

Nick Swinhoe 2019-01-16
Excellent course enjoy by the whole group.

Barry McNally 2019-01-06
Course not to it’s usual standard, fairways and greens heavily sanded. Regards Barry

Petra Riegler 2019-01-01
We had need 20 Balls????

Fred Zickmantel 2018-11-03
Loved the course

Maurice Rogers 2018-10-16
Fantastic clubhouse with great facilities

Cormac O'Conaire 2018-10-16
buggies ready on arrival, we all completed the round

john beesley 2018-10-15
Very good

Kevin Steele 2018-09-21
Great course, will return next year we hope.

Michel BORRACELLI 2018-08-21
Parcours formidable, incroyablement entretenu Un plaisir à renouveler sans modération !

Liz Scully 2018-07-22
Great course in good condition.

Doug Smith 2018-07-21
The O,Connor Jnr course was in great condition. Maybe the best we have played this year. All the fairways were in tip top condition and the greens were fantastic. I know they have prepared the course for an international junior event for next week, so good to know they have it spot on..

Jonathan Goold 2018-07-10
Superb day out

Simon 2018-06-29
Pace of play was slow and the stewards wouldn't do anything about it

Michael Tait 2018-06-07
First class course which I cannot find fault with. The greens are superb and you have to be 100% correct when reading the line of putts as there are the subtlest of breaks which take your putt offline if not read correctly. Overall a wonderful course.

David Jones 2018-05-25
Very disappointed with the speed of the greens, don't think they had been cut,

Paul Beard 2018-05-16
Great course but a slow round

Craig Gilmore 2018-04-28
Very good experience all round with only comment being we could have done with a buggy earlier than 10mins from the golf club.

Brian Beggs 2018-04-20
5:30mins for a round if golf is too long. The reason they are letting too many players on the course.

Jeff Bull 2018-04-17
Magical. Course was exceptional in every department. The service was excellent. Very, very impressed.

ray walsh 2018-04-09
Great course, great service, only issues are the greens could do with a little work, and the issue with theft from buggys was a little worrying! But I love this course one of best I have played in Portugal

Tania Segers 2018-04-01
OK. The club seemed to be improving over a visit last winter.

Gary Watts 2018-03-30
a great set up and a less challenging but still very enjoyable golf course, we scored better so naturally enjoyed it more.

Richard Turner 2018-03-07
Good but twilight start at 14.40 is too late to get 18 holes in before it’s gets dark

Max Cornish 2018-02-10
Played before - a very top notch experience - but it is rather more expensive than other courses we played

Mark Barnish 2017-10-20
Excellent, very professional set up, need to be there slightly earlier as take time to get clubs processed and load onto buggies, thi sis tough when have an early tee time

Jim Reid 2017-10-08
Really enjoyed playing here again, a much more playable holiday golf course than the Faldo. Rated this 3rd

Erich Renz 2017-09-26
guter Zustand, langsames Spiel 5 Stunden

Liam Kearns 2017-09-20
Good course and well kept. Easier to play it first time.

Paul Beard 2017-09-14
Great course

Doug Smith 2017-08-05
We picked the hottest day of the year. But a really nice course with some tricky holes. Got to keep concentration which is difficult when it's so hot. The greens were not as quick as the practice facilities so quite a few lagged putts. A great layout to be enjoyed along with the welcoming staff, who look after us golfers well.

Alan Cooper 2017-07-14

Martin Jones 2017-06-26
Awesome course, although very tough in the wind.

Rory White 2017-06-19
Beautiful course, the best of the 5 we played. Quality.

Greg Hall 2017-06-15
1st Class, would love to return. Extra touches not received at other courses.

Maurice Rogers 2017-05-30

Tomas Daul 2017-05-25

Ian Green 2017-05-15
3rd time we have played the course, always in great condition, all 12 players enjoyed the experience.

Karel Reznicek 2017-04-27
perfect maintained golfcourse

Simon Till 2017-04-13
Shabby around the edges and for the money not sure great value.

Axel Heuser 2017-01-04
Exellent golf course. The course is full of variety.

John Deveney 2016-11-18
Played it for 1st time, enjoyed the experience. Staff excellent.

Ralph Keyes 2016-10-19
Very enjoyable as always

Steve Brunton 2016-09-22
Generally good condition, and the usual excellent service on arrival. However, the Greens did play extremely slowly

David McCrone 2016-08-20
Very enjoyable

Doug Smith 2016-08-13
Great day at O'Connor. The best greens we have played all year.

Nicholas Kjelgaard 2016-06-26
Not overly keen on the course, you start it and it has nice feel but after 18 holes which all seem the same it is a bit boring. Also as 3 men playing being partnered with an old lady was not a good experience. I would highly recommend they remove the reeds so you can see the shot over water it would be far better than looking at yet another shot over reeds.

david shannon 2016-06-21
Lovely course and in excellent condition for a resort course. Only criticism would be bunkers, sand too compacted, probably from all the watering. Splash shot was not possible, almost everyone was like playing off fairway. Best hint - stay out of bunkers. Play O'Connor first, Faldo probably just shades it.

James Galbraith 2016-06-17

Ian Green 2016-06-06
Excellent condition, a great day

Balz Riesterer 2016-05-24
At this course we have been rather surprised about the level of maintenace. For the price of the greenfee you expect better conditions of fairways.

Dave Thompson 2016-05-16
Onlt played 8 holes due to rain but the course was great and the greens very good. Would like to return.

Peter Grant 2016-04-16
Very playable and enjoyable course. Much easier than the Faldo course.

Jonathan Lloyd 2016-03-19
Marco our minibus driver to and from the golf courses was excellent.

Hermann Heddens 2016-02-15
Hat uns am besten gefallen, super Platz

Terry Richards 2015-11-01
Fantastic day weather had changed and the Golf Course played fair

Terry Richards 2015-11-01
Fantastic day weather had changed and the Golf Course played fair

Jimmy rogers 2015-10-26
Very good. Much wider fairways but just as difficult as the Faldo.

Gary Attewell 2015-10-18
Excellent course..really enjoyed it
