About the Club
The 9 hole Academy Course located between the Oceânico Faldo and the Oceânico O'Connor Courses is ideally suited to beginners and those who wish to sharpen up their short game. It has been built to the same high standards as the Oceânico Faldo and Oceânico O'Connor Courses. Three teeing options vary the line of play into each hole and maximize every hazard designed into the green complex.
The 7th is the feature hole on the course, where two of the teeing options play over water. The 9th hole Academy Course will become a firm favourite with all the family and a must to play alongside its big brothers.
The Amendoeira Golf Resort, set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, is perfectly positioned in the central Algarve, a world class golfing region close to the most south westerly tip of Europe.
The Resort is just 35 minutes drive from Faro Airport along the A22 motorway, 4 kilometres inland from the beach resort.
The Amendoeira clubhouse will be less than a kilometre to the north of the motorway.
The two golf courses at Amendoeira are the first to be built within the Camara (Local Council) of Silves, the ancient capital of the Algarve and an area steeped in history.
The Resort lies just inside the southern boundary of the borough, a short drive to the thriving town of Silves itself, with its many bars and restaurants serving traditional local cuisine, all overlooked by its 4/5th Century castle and old city walls.
Silves has a colourful history, occupied by the Romans, and later the Moors, it became, after liberation by the Crusaders, a prosperous town, rivalling Lisbon as a centre of culture.
