Benamor golf course was the first golf course to open east of the capital of the Algarve, Faro, and lies just outside the city of Tavira.This course offers a pleasant experience, to players of all standards. The golf course is undulating but not hilly. The views of the mountains to the North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South are stunning. 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 golf course was selected as the Best Maintained Course in 2001 by the Portuguese Golf Federation.
On my recent trip I played the Benamor golf course which I enjoyed. On my arrival I was greeted in the Pro shop where I presented my voucher and I hired clubs for my round €25 . The staff were friendly and welcoming. I was put out with 2 members as I was a single player. The course was busy but it moved well. The round took about 4 hours as the time allotted on the course. The clubhouse served food and had an extensive menu. I was made most welcome by all the people I met and I had a great day.
Course is in all round good condition, not crowded, had an enjoyable round of golf.
It has been a long time since I last played Benamor. I had forgotten how nice it is. This is not a big course but you still need to think your way round. The greens were excellent, quite quick and true. There has been a lot of work done on the course and it is looking better than ever. What a treat...
A really lovely day out. Good company, food and wine. The course is in good condition, but the greens a bit slow.
Well maintained course with some nice features
Course was very busy some delays
Un parcours amusant à l entretien très correct . Des vallons , des dodlegs ,,un peu d eau à franchir. Tout pour passer un bon moment golfique.
Course was fine, nice Terrace and efficient reception
Unfortunately only played seven holes due to the very wet weather.
Pity about the greens being tined but the course was in good condition. Buggies very expensive 20 to 25 Euro should be the maximum in line with the majority of courses in UK

Good morning everyone. on that Saturday morning we played at benamor and the 4 ball were absolutely gentleman, so much so that I felt so good that I score 40 points with 2 blobs on the par 5. Like the course and I will play there again. Wish Mr Douglas happy return to the UK. we hope to see you in Portugal again soon. Best Regards Franc Coutinho
Course slightly unkept around tees and bunkers.
First time at Benamor. The course was in good condition and the greens were running true. The organisation was excellent as always.
Another great day at Benamore with lovely company and great fun back in Chez Carlos Restraurant after the golf , many thanks, looking forward to our next game
Course in good condition, not to long but some challenging holes,service from all staff excellent.
Course in excellent condition. Hardly anyone on course this morning and two of us went round in 3 hours.
The course is in good condition, it is not a long course but some holes are blind from the tee and it would help to have some marker in the distance for direction. Staff are extremely pleasant and helpful
Average - cost if 25 euros for junior was a bit high
Very fast and effective service for the booking, golf course in perfect conditions :-D
Not a long golf course but requesting some management. Great condition and all áreas are very well manicured. Typical holiday golf course

Just played Benamor course I good condition. Greens better than last week.
John Dannatt 2018-06-15
Enjoyed Benamor course very much. Greens had been tyned and hollowed previous week so not as true as normal. The tee times given to us were different to the ones Benamor had. We were given 0840hrs and Benamor had 0904hrs. No major problem but I could have done with an extra 25 minutes “ beauty sleep “
Enjoyable but not the best.
Great holiday golf course. Perfect for a relaxing day of golf. Tees, fairways, greens and roughs all in great condition.
In very good condition. Not too crowded.
Course in very good condition. Tees, fairways and greens really good. Bunkers not great but this was due to the heavy rain in the area over the last week. All in all a most enjoyable day out.

I always enjoy Benamor. Yesterday we dodgedthe showers and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon, even though the pace of play was very slow. A lot of people making the best of the weather. The course was in very good shape and the greens were the best we have played this year.
Course in good condition. Service at clubhouse friendly and quick. Course not very difficult and short. Could be one to start with in a holiday.
We thoroughly enjoyed the course albeit slightly shorter than preferred. The green were fast and quite difficult to read. Reception was very helpful.
Nice course was in good condition

Staff as always very helpful. Course well maintained and greens very good and true. Good VFM.
Lovely well established and challenging golf course. Reception staff not so friendly as at other two courses we played
A clever little course in the most beautiful setting. Great club house and welcoming staff. Today the greens were lightening quick. Very tough. Well done to those who ended with good scores.
Wonderful Course. Unfortunatly we had to follow members in a Medal competition. it took us a long time
Pleasant course in good condition. However, no ranger and near 5 hour round rather spoiled the experience.

Poor golf course and overcrowded

Good course which we all enjoyed. Excellent food and service.
nice holiday course.
Very good course, well maintained.
Beautiful. One of the most picturesque courses on the Algarve. Not a long course but with enough intrigue to make it quite interesting. Today the course was in good condition and the greens were in great shape. Soft enough to take spin/stop and true. Great reception and club house. Favourite hole 10th - par 3.
Our favourite course of the trip. It was in superb condition and the whole group enjoyed playing there.
If you want a course with charm, then Benamor has charm in spades. Not a long course but still needs to be played with respect. I think the 10th hole is one of the best par 3's you will find anywhere. The course today was in great condition, with good fairways and firm greens.
good golf course, poor driving range especially for short game
In my opinion, the green fee for Benamor has gotten way too high, for this kind of course. I rate it asvery mich a B course based on challenge, condition and over all experience. It is not worth thr green fee.
Course in excellent form
Benamor was in very good condition, the drizzle was annoying but hardly your fault
lovely friendly course and staff, course in good condition would play again.
pleasant club course in good condition
Course in good condition
Benamor is a lovely undulating course, free of housing developments around it and a fair test of golfing abilities. The greens are in fine condition and fairways good. It was a bit wet in places, but did not affect the overall experience. Ian H
Great little course
Course in great condition in September which was impressive given the long, hot dry summer.
Lovely picturesque course and nice clubhouse
COURSE IN GOOD CONDITION. CHECK IN TROUBLE FREE. SPEED OF PLAY GOOD. BAR STAFF WARM AND FRIENDLY.
Great course with great views. Very forgiving and relatively short so good for us mid to high handicaps.
john michael o'neill2016-05-19
Lovely course in fantastic condition
Good time to play as not held up or had groups being us
Corse in bad condition and they have agreed to pay buggy fees next time
Up to the normal standard we have come expect.

Great. Lovely club
We didn't travel to Benamor, because of the rain. We had played her before, and liked the course.
Chez Carlos Golf Society2011-11-07
The owners of Quinta de Benamor, the Martins Dias family, approached the late Sir Henry Cotton to make a concept design for an 18-hole course back in 1986. The final result is a delightful par 71 golf course of 5.500 metres (6.100 yards), with mountain views to the north and sea views to the south. Indigenous olive, cork, carob, fig and almond trees, many centuries old, feature prominently as does some strategically placed water features. Benamor has a worthy reputation for being a well kept and manicured course – it did not disappoint. The greens were lush and deceptive – quick down and much slower up. If traveling from afar combine your visit with some lunch or dinner at one of the many fine fish restaurants on the seafront at Cabanas (just opposite the entrance to the club).
Chez Carlos Golf Society2011-05-12
The game this week took the Society to the Eastern Algarve again, an area of natural beauty and a popular destination in search of those seeking a taste of ‘real’ Portugal. We last played here in November '11. The owners of Quinta de Benamor, the Martins Dias family, approached the late Sir Henry Cotton to make a concept design for an 18-hole course back in 1986. The final result is a delightful par 71 golf course of 5.500 metres (6.100 yards), with mountain views to the north and sea views to the south. Indigenous olive, cork, carob, fig and almond trees, many centuries old, feature prominently as does some strategically placed water features. It is a delightful course to play. Summer has seemed to arrive quickly this week and a band of x20 players assembled in hot conditions for the weekly Individual Stableford competition. Once again the men played off the white tees today principally as it is a better course than the ‘yellow’ yet only 300 meters longer. The course was in great condition with lush fairways. Several of our players had never played here before and they were all impressed. The East Algarve has some great golf so do give it a try.
