The grandfather of all the courses in the Algarve and a permanent living symbol to its architect and active promoter, Sir Henry Cotton. Originally paddy fields for rice growing rice have been converted into a flat challenging course and especially designed for the stronger player. Something short of half a million shrubs and trees were planted in the conversion. As the fairways are so flat Henry Cotton introduced strategically placed water hazards and bunkers to catch the unwary long hitter. The Penina Championship Course has many times been the home of the annual Portuguese Open which is now referred to as the Algarve Open.
Penina Championship Reviews
Needs a bit of work
from United Kingdom
A good course but seems to suffer on the fairways and water due to it being part of a hotel.
Not as good as in previous visists and it could do with a bit of TLC around the fairways as they seem to be suffering from overplay
