The popular 18 hole Benamor Golf Course which was opened in 2000 and lies just to the east of the town of Tavira on the main road EN 125. The course fairways run over undulating terrain but is not too hilly. The views of the Serra do Caldeirao hills to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south are quite stunning. The open fairways of Bermuda Sahara provides good lies for wood and iron shots.The natural obstacles coupled with strategic placed bunkers and occasional water hazards make the course a worthwhile challenge whilst the retention by the architects of as many of the strategic old trees as feasible asks for shot accuracy from the golfer.
The Par-4 of 308 metres as an opening hole provides a gentle introduction to the course. A slight dog-leg to the right leads to an elevated and generous green with bunkers on each side. Most of the Par-4s on the first nine holes are reasonably to play but the Par-5 fifth hole of 466 metres is another matter! The Par-3 eighth of 195 metres will test club selection to the full as it depends on the strength and wind direction. The stepped green with a prominent cork tree and challenging bunkers demand shot accuracy. A golfer-friendly course to play for all standards. If playing the courses in the eastern Algarve the Benamor Golf Course should be considered for your Golf Holiday Package.
