Portuguese Courses

The Algarve region in the South of Portugal forms the Iberian area with its near neighbour, Spain and like its neighbour enjoys some of the continent`s best weather. A very popular tourist venue with over 7 million foreign visitors a year this lovely country has some very laid back local people who will make you feel at home. Its rich culture having been inhabited by so many different peoples over the centuries, from a Geramic tribe of Scandinavians to the Romans to the Moors and all the way up to being part of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves in the 1800`s means it has a great mixture of cultures. Its wonderful ceramics reflect this and since the 1960`s it has been adding golf courses, each one better than the last!
Amendoeira Faldo Course

Designed by Sir. Nick Faldo with a strategic game in mind, this superb golf course requires careful placement in order to achieve good results as you would expect from a design by the 6 times major winner! “The terrain of Amendoeira Golf Resort is impressive and the project has the potential to be a real point of interest in the Algarve, which with so many golf courses in the region, is not an easy task” – pointed out Nick Faldo, during a visit in 2007.
