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.

A tough but beautiful golf course

Fantastic set up over at Oceanico. Everybody from the reception staff to green keepers were unbelievably friendly. A wonderful experience of how golf should be set up, with every last detail for great customer experience catered for. Not the cheapest round of golf but certainly worth experiencing.
The course was in absolutely wonderful condition and the greens were superb.

Fantastic course

Very enjoyable round, less strategic than the Faldo course and a little less punishing unless significantly offline with more water and less bunkers.

Immaculate Condition

A very attractive course, in immaculate condition when I was there in May/18.
The facilities are good, with a quality club house, excellent practice green and complementary driving range (the only negative being that, perhaps because it is free) it can be hard to find a stand).
Buggies were compulsory when we were there. I am not a huge fan of buggies, but because of the long distances between green and tee it probably makes sense.
It is a forgiving course, with wide fairways. The rough is cut at the right hight to be a penalty, but still show the ball. It is hard to lose a ball except in the water. This helps keep the pace of play reasonable. Our two rounds took 4 and 4.25 hours, which is pretty good for holiday golf in Portugal.
The greens were excellent. Reasonably quick and very true, although some in our group found them difficult to read. The course played long, with not a lot of run on lush fairways and the greens are generally well protected. The water encroaches on most holes, but generally there is an option to play safe and still get on or close to the green.
The only thing that let down the experience was the service in the bar/restaurant afterwards, where the service was slow and chaotic at times. Admittedly we were a large group with new orders coming in as each group came in, but most places seem to cope with this better.

Fantastic golf resort

Amazing facilities, apart from the rude lady who met us and took our details for our tee time!
One of the best golf resorts we have attended, I'd definitely return.

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!

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.
