Benamor Golf Course

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.

Excellent as usual though a bit slow

Terry Smith2019-09-25
Everything was fine apart from greens and tees being sanded whilst we were playing

Gregory Butler2019-09-23
As a newbie I was made very welcome by Chez Carlos members. Staff at Benamor were as usual very helpful. The course was in good order although the weather was foul. My actual golf was the worst I have played in a while but despite this I enjoyed the experience due to the company and the positive supporting atmosphere of both Chez Carlos Society and Benamor. Looking forward to future outings with Chez Carlos and to improve performance on the courses and to the ''craic'' with fellow members.

Michael Poole2019-08-26
Lovely course with fairly easy walking, holes aren't long but can be tricky. Thank you for organising our golf Marisa.

David Swift2019-07-25
Lovely views, holes are a bit short but a very pleasant experience

Jonathan D’Hooghe2019-06-24
We play Benamor each year (twice this year) and thoroughly enjoy our visits. The course is always in good condition, the holes are fair for beginners and the more experienced golfer, the staff are friendly and the beer afterwards is always cold!! It is also good value for money compared to the western Algarve.

A.P. Kusters2019-04-29
Nice golf course. Holes are very close to eachother and mainly straight and narrow. Few lakes and almost all bunkers at greens, but all in all a good experience.

Howe Damian2018-12-03
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.

Frank Doherty2018-09-28
Course is in all round good condition, not crowded, had an enjoyable round of golf.

Doug Smith2017-04-06
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...

Ian Humphries2017-03-11
A really lovely day out. Good company, food and wine. The course is in good condition, but the greens a bit slow.

Tuilier 2019-12-01
Very good welcome, I played with à couple of swedes and the course was very nice

Dave mcleod2019-11-13
Nice course bit pricy and a bit slow with inexperienced golfers ahead of us but overall good experience

David Patterson2019-11-12
Benamor is a friendly golf course that provides a challenge to golfers of all abilities. For the very low handicap golfer it offers the opportunity to go under net par. Consequently it can be busy. The course is in great condition.

Julian Pallister2019-10-18
Excellent days golf. Not to crowded.

Liam Kearney2019-10-15
Benamor was fairly dry but all enjoyed the golf

Helen Rutherford2019-10-10
Extremely busy, played here many time but never played that slow before. However greens were perfect, relaxing course and the staff were very friendly. Pleasure to play on the course. Played with another English gentleman who was a member and invited me to play again.

Paul2019-09-29
The club was great in that we went a day early by mistake and they still allowed us to play. We were held up by two four balls who should have let us through but kept ignoring us. Not the clubs fault. However the course was in good condition. Buggies were relatively cheap to hire as compared to other Algarve courses. Probably the right amount of challenge in the course for us.

ILLINGWORTH2019-09-05
Very good an excellent course for holiday golf

Ingrid van Loenhout2019-07-03
The course is averige. Lots of sand.

Paul Simmons2019-06-01

Excellent condition and no waiting.

Seamus Leonard2019-04-19
Really enjoyed a tricky course. Would come back for sure

David Symons2019-04-19
UK country-style course, nice welcome and friendly locals. Some electric walking trolleys for hire would be a good idea.

Fran Mackey2019-04-17
Very nice course, but the greens were very disappointing

Jackie Robinson2019-04-08
Excellent and fine for our last day!

ian nicholas2019-03-17

Frank Doherty2019-02-07
Course was very busy some delays

PLICHTA 2018-12-14
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.

Bob Inglis2018-10-19
Course was fine, nice Terrace and efficient reception

Neil Wendel-Jones2018-10-15
Unfortunately only played seven holes due to the very wet weather.

Michael Dobson2018-10-15
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

Billy Freeland 2018-10-13
Good

Franc Coutinho2018-10-13
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

Richard Walsh2018-10-12
Course slightly unkept around tees and bunkers.

Mark Punter2018-10-07
First time at Benamor. The course was in good condition and the greens were running true. The organisation was excellent as always.

Heather Ward2018-10-07
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

Jackie Robinson2018-10-06
Fun

alantomlinson2018-09-20
Course in good condition, not to long but some challenging holes,service from all staff excellent.

Julian Pallister2018-09-02
Course in excellent condition. Hardly anyone on course this morning and two of us went round in 3 hours.

John Flanagan2018-08-21
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

Wayne Pontin2018-08-12
Average - cost if 25 euros for junior was a bit high

Pierre-A Roessli2018-07-11
Very fast and effective service for the booking, golf course in perfect conditions :-D

Michael Bumstead2018-07-05
Excellent

Carlos Ferreira2018-06-27
Not a long golf course but requesting some management. Great condition and all áreas are very well manicured. Typical holiday golf course

John Dannatt 2018-06-22
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 “

Allan rennie2018-06-02
Enjoyable but not the best.

Carlos Ferreira2018-05-05
Great holiday golf course. Perfect for a relaxing day of golf. Tees, fairways, greens and roughs all in great condition.

Julian Pallister2018-05-01
In very good condition. Not too crowded.

Stuart Johnston2018-04-14
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.

SASSARD - MARIE2018-04-09
Very well!

Doug Smith2018-03-16
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.

Gert Jacobs2018-03-04
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.

Barry Summerfield2018-01-20
We thoroughly enjoyed the course albeit slightly shorter than preferred. The green were fast and quite difficult to read. Reception was very helpful.

Timo Salomaa2018-01-19
Nice course was in good condition

Mr Peter Ellam2018-01-12
Staff as always very helpful. Course well maintained and greens very good and true. Good VFM.

Trevor Clark2017-12-11
Lovely well established and challenging golf course. Reception staff not so friendly as at other two courses we played

Doug Smith2017-11-11
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.

Yvonne Lee2017-11-08
Wonderful Course. Unfortunatly we had to follow members in a Medal competition. it took us a long time

Michael Bryan2017-10-16
Pleasant course in good condition. However, no ranger and near 5 hour round rather spoiled the experience.

Mr Stephen Macguffie2017-10-15
Poor golf course and overcrowded

Malcolm Stuart Russell 2017-10-04
Good course which we all enjoyed. Excellent food and service.

Malachy Coleman2017-10-01
nice holiday course.

Gary Lynes2017-09-22
Very good course, well maintained.

Doug Smith2017-09-13
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.

Simon Bussell2017-05-14
Our favourite course of the trip. It was in superb condition and the whole group enjoyed playing there.

Doug Smith2017-05-13
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.

Fritz Reich2017-04-11
good golf course, poor driving range especially for short game

Paul Christiansen2017-04-01
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.

Jackie Robinson2017-03-12
Course in excellent form

David Patterson2016-11-15
Benamor was in very good condition, the drizzle was annoying but hardly your fault

COLIN FISH2016-10-31
lovely friendly course and staff, course in good condition would play again.

Julian Pallister2016-10-31
pleasant club course in good condition

Robert Lentell2016-10-29
Course in good condition

Ian Humphries2016-10-09
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

Gary Lynes2016-10-07
Great little course

Carolyn Richmond2016-09-20
Course in great condition in September which was impressive given the long, hot dry summer.

Michael Sutton2016-09-20
Lovely picturesque course and nice clubhouse

Frank Blair2016-08-26

Jackie Robinson2016-03-04
Corse in bad condition and they have agreed to pay buggy fees next time

Robert Lentell2016-02-14
Up to the normal standard we have come expect.

Alan Potts 2016-02-08
Great. Lovely club

Ollie Lambe2015-10-29
We didn't travel to Benamor, because of the rain. We had played her before, and liked the course.

Hanspeter Spaelti2015-10-23
everything ok

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.
