Faldo Overview

In a modern twist of a traditional recipe, cacti and wild herbs replace the role of heather, Holm oaks and ancient olive trees take the place of lush English woodland, and desert scrub bunkers of crushed limestone replace sandy tracts in a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play. With strategic play in mind, the Faldo Golf Course asks for careful positioning to score well.

The course first hole is a testing uphill, Par 4, offering a number of risks and rewards opportunities. The downhill, Par 5, hole fourth encounters a meandering watercourse, which comes into play on three of the front nine holes and two of the inward play. Playing the impressive thirteenth Par 5 hole which has a dropping fairway and when the wind is behind the player, will demand good steady shots all the way to the hole. The holes fourteenth and fifteenth holes will continue to challenge the golfer when playing shots amongst rocky outcrops.

Faldo Reviews

Fair, Testing and Fun

David from United Kingdom
Took the opportunity of the Easter special and played the Faldo course last week on a sunny and breezy day. Tee off at 12:30 with buggy and own clubs. Was greeted by very friendly staff and stewards. High level of customer service from concierge, reception, buggy master, starter and marshalls. Enjoyed a quick put on well manicured and slick green. Course is a good challenge of yellow tees. I play off 4 but played off forward tee due to playing partner handicap. Despite this, still long enough that a mix of irons got an outing not just my wedge. Course was in excellent condition and greens very fair. Mix of holes tested your ball flight control and reward for moving ball both ways. Very 'Faldo' like with need for strategy and punishment in the right places. Lot of places to capture lose shots but fair. Some holes can be attacked but some need carefully placement off tees. Par 5's are reachable if take bold lines off tees. Really enjoyed the course and a good challenge. Played for 85 euros which was very competitive and at normal rate of 133 euro would be a representing price.
Condition great layout poor

Ian from United Kingdom
The condition of this course is excellent and the service from the staff is also great but I didn't like the layout. The back nine is very hilly and there are too many bunkers. I thought Jack Nicklaus liked bunkers on his course designs but Faldo has taken it to a new level. We had a buggy but I say this course would be impossible to play and enjoy without a buggy unless you have legs like Chris Hoy. The walk from 11 to 12 you need a Sherpa.
Great course, but too much for high handicappers

Liam from United Kingdom
16 of us played the Faldo course, with handicaps ranging from 4 to 26. The higher handicappers and shorter hitters struggled on some holes due to the carry and accuracy needed from the tee. It is a great course though and I would highly recommend it to anyone not falling into the categories above. The service and facilities were the best of anywhere we have played in the Algarve (11 courses and counting)
