Benamorgolfcourse was the first golfcourse 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 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 course was selected as the Best Maintained Course in 2001 by the Portuguese Golf Federation.
