Penina Championship Overview

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.

1st time playing Penina Championship.
Pretty course and well landscaped. Mature course with trees that can provide shelter yet a pain if your balls land anywhere below the trees. Bad experience was we started at hole 10 as it was a busy day and after hole 18, we went to hole 1. When we got there, a lady came up and said to us “You play fast? Did you book?”. She was quite obnoxious and I said this was our 2nd 9. I also said if you play fast, you can go ahead as this is our first time playing here. She mumbled something and her husband said is better we proceed as they are walking and we have a buggy.

Our first time on Penina Championship course. Greens were with a lot of sand and under aeration, thus putting was not that much fun. Course itself is technical with perfectly placed water hazards and numerous bunkers. Old eucalyptus trees give a nice smell to the air. Although flat and without fantastic manoramas, it is very interesting for golf itself!

Over charged for buggy
We enjoyed the course and it was in good shape. However, we were there on a twilight rate which was nice. We were charged 50 Euros for a buggy...this is outrageous! We are attracted to the course for a good green fee and then get jammed on the buggy cost. Very disappointed with that.

Needs a bit of work
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

Nice course worth a visit.
A good course some tight holes and water to negotiate but a fair test of Golf. Greens were very good. Staff could have been more welcoming and helpful but overall worth a visit.
