Amendoeira Golf Resort is situated in Silves, Algarve, hidden away amongst the Monchique Mountains, yet just a short drive away from the South coast. Amendoeira resort offers a mix of modern apartments and villas, and is on the doorstep of arguably two of the most prestigious golf courses in the Algarve, the Faldo Course and O’Connor Jnr Course.
There are two onsite 18-hole championship courses in the shape of The Faldo Course and The O’Connor Course. The Faldo requires golfers to position themselves well through each hole to achieve a decent score. The O’Connor Jnr complements the neighboring Faldo and lies in a fertile valley giving off an impression of an oasis with small water features and vast lakes that can test even the most experienced golfer. Both courses are overlooked by the superb Amendoeira Resort clubhouse.
Amendoeira Golf Resort offers modern two bedroom and two bathroom apartments which are each fitted with a fully equipped kitchen and large lounge. For larger groups looking for a golf holiday in the Algarve, the Amendoeira Golf Resort also has three, four and five-bedroom villas. Each accommodation option includes air con, satellite TV, a DVD player, hairdryer, free Wi-Fi, a garage or carport, and outdoor furniture for those beautiful summer evenings. Other facilities in the resort include two outdoor pools, gym, football pitches and no less than six tennis courts.

The Faldo Course plays long at 7258 yards with a modern twist on a traditional recipe, with the heather, lush woodland and sandy tracts of Sunningdale being replaced by cacti, wild herbs, holm oaks, ancient olive trees and desert scrub bunkers. This is a golf course that revels in the classic principles of strategic play.
Designed by Christy O'Connor Jnr to complement the iconic Faldo Course, the O'Connor Course is lined within the orange groves that run through a valley full of streams and water hazards, which demands high accuracy from golfers. Standing at 6900 yards, with the self-proclaimed 'amen' corner waiting for you, this extremely scenic layout is now one of the most sought-after courses in the Algarve.
