Course Overview and Details

Updated information by the golf course professional

Penina Golf Course , previously known as the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Golf Course, the main 18 holes provides the most demanding test of a player's skills in the Algarve, if not in Portugal. With the inevitable difficulty that a flat landscaping and terrain creates with club selection, the holes are crossed and flanked by a series of streams, ditches and water hazards, demanding precisely executed shots to avoid trouble and achieve par.
The course is beautifully maintained, winding past tall stands of eucalyptus and clumps of palm to mainly elevated greens which have subtle slopes and sometimes treacherous speeds.
