Oceânico O'Connor Golf Course

Perfectly complementing the Faldo Course, whilst taking advantage of the rich valley soil in contrast to the arid hillside, Christy O'Connor Jnr's course at Amendoeira offers no less of a challenge. Large areas of water demand accurate play and creative shot making, and these lakes and streams are to be maintained as a wildlife sanctuary.

classy course
Very nice course littered with water and bunkers making it very tough, we played it in the wind and it ruined me, I left part of my sould on that course
Excellent condition and would love to play it again for the test!

My personal favourite of the two courses. Loved the set up and some really good holes. The whole course makes you think about every shot and there is some great, risk, reward

The course was in good condition. If teeing off in the afternoon you may not get a buggie if the course is busy. The course time is 4.5hrs, so allow plenty of time.

I just found this course a bit dull. I played it a week ago, scored well, but I am struggling to remember any of the holes. If you can make long carries then the Faldo course is a much better option.

Clubhouse, facilities and friendly staff were excellent.

Fantastic setup. Friendly welcome. Clubs picked up at front door taken to your cart and waiting for you before your round. Complimentary balls on the range before your game. Course magnificent. Fairways lush, greens superb. Nothing negative to say, its all good. They even clean your clubs after the round. Will return to play the Faldo for sure.

Much more space than the Faldo course. Suits big hitters. Flat and beautiful with plenty of water.

Another superb course, tough for a beginner but hey, you have to give it your best shots. A lot of water, streams, lakes etc and lost count of balls sunk. Think the fish are pushing them around but thoroughly enjoyed.

Extensive facilities available with three courses - O'Connor, Faldo and Par 3 floodlight course. Bot O'Connor and Faldo are challenging courses especially with high winds and golf buggies highly recommended as extensive walks between greens and next tee.
Apartments excellent - large and well finished. Club house nice and reasonable food.
Taxi or car required for any off property restaurants required.

Ian H rated 4 out of 5 - Mar 3 2016

this is a reasonably interesting course considering it could easily be another forgettable resort course, but there are several holes that are memorable. Overall in good condition despite the heavy use. Some holes can play very long into the wind. Despite being longer on the score card as the sister faldo course, it doesn't play as long as faldo. Superb practice facilities. Green fees are expensive, but if you get it as part of a stay
