Penina Champoinship Golf Course was previously known as the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Golf Course. The main 18 holes provide the most demanding test of a players skill in the Algarve, if not in Portugal. The inevitable difficulty that a flat landscape 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.
Penina always a good test as it’s one of the longer courses. Was in good condition mainly. Greens were nice apart from last few which have some disease.
Not played here for a few years. Sadly it’s seen better days and the course, whilst still a challenge, is tired and the worst state I’ve ever seen it in. Looks like hardly anyone repairs their pitch marks anymore
Lovely course but has lost its attraction. Very poor maintenance and condition. Areas around bunkers not maintained with high grass growing on edge of bunkers. Will think twice about playing here again... Gramacho/Pinta better option for the same Rate.
Greens in good condition. Rest of the course a bit rough.
Course good but not as well maintained as Amendoeira or Vilamoura courses.
Course set up was good but bad weather meant we could only play 16 holes
Very good as usual but a little parched due to weather. Facilities well improved
Course was a definite improvement on last year but still a little scruffy in some areas
A bit scruffy looking was expecting a better quality course
We had a fantastic day at Penina.
Everything was ok.
