Benamor golf course was the first golf course to open east of the Algarve, and lies just outside the city of Tavira. This course offers a pleasant experience, to players of all standards. The golf course is undulating but not hilly. The views of the mountains to the North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South are stunning. The fairways of Bermuda Sahara and cool-season grasses provide good lies for wood and iron shots. Player's accuracy is particularly called upon by the architects' retention of as many of the old trees as feasible. These natural obstacles coupled with strategically placed bunkers and occasional water hazards make the course a worthwhile challenge. This golf course was selected as the Best Maintained Course in 2001 by the Portuguese Golf Federation.
Nice course, quite short with some drivable par 4s and would suit higher handicap players nicely whilst still providing enough of a challenge for better players. Starter was a bit officious, unnecessary so, in my opinion. Some nice holes set amongst some very old olive trees.clubhouse is an old quaint wooden building.
Course ok but fairways need more water. Overall rating good and service good
Very slow due to 4 fourballs playing a texas scramble and refusing to let faster players behind through, ignoring course etiquette. Course representatives did nothing despite being aware of the situation. 4 and a half hours for a round here is unacceptable.
Carfully mantained course. Bunkers to hard. Greens ok. Friendly staff
Some of the buggies were not in the best of condition. Dirty windscreens and some ripped seats.
Easy to play the course because Shorter total yardage.
Benamor informed me that i should have reserved a buggy and that i was lucky that one was available!
Pleasant course, but found it not as well maintained as the courses we had played earlier in the week. Staff were helpful.
Wonderful open course with plenty of challenges
Average course easy walking not great layout but condition was brilliant especially the greens. They need to sort tees out
Benamor is a pleasant course, but the bunkers are in poor condition
A Henry Cotton design, enjoyable test, will definitely enjoy more on the 2nd visit, I will definitely benefit for knowing the course a little.
