Penina Championship

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 Championship - latest comments and reviews

John Redmond 2024-05-20
Course in very bad condition. Bad tees and fairways, course very untidy. Way too expensive for a golf course in such condition.

Ray Knowles 2024-05-12
No food / drinks buggy on course, but advised as such by golf shop before round

Eamonn Ryan 2024-04-19
We have played Penina Championship many times over the years and always found it a good challenge. This year the course seems to have suffered from lack of attention, particularly on the tee boxes and fairways. Hopefully these will be addressed and the course will comeback to its former glory.

Amanda Block 2024-04-06
A beautifully set up course but the water all round the course looks stagnant and smells. It is such a shame. Money needs to be spent on the course and the hotel. But enjoyed. Almost don't want to rate it highly as it may stop the owners spending money.

Stefan Kobewka 2024-04-02
A great Henry Cotton layout spoilt by poorly maintained fairways and almost unplayable bunkers… they have not been raked after the heavy prolonged rain and are compacted sand. A real shame but the course just felt a little neglected.

Juha Virta 2024-03-24
An old style course in nice though flat surroundings. Bunkers not as good as they should be. Otherwise course was playing rather well, some faiways and semi rough were patchy.

Eric Deprey 2024-03-14
Nice but a little bit old. Needs an ubgrade

Peter Basford 2024-03-03
Course is a very good layout, tight and tree lined. Fairways and greens in good condition.

Mikko Raunio 2024-02-10
Very good golf course, but sligthly outdated. Need better maintenance.

Ken MacDonald 2024-01-24
Tee's are in poor condition. Greens are not as good as other courses. The water on the course is stagnant, so there is a terrible smell when you are close to these areas.

Simon Hebden 2023-10-20
The course was not at its best. It needs a bit of TLC. We realise the climate has not helped.

Conor O'Brien 2023-10-17
Course was in very poor condition overall. Greens were ok but fairways were a disgrace with no grass cover on large areas of every fairway. Clearly there has been no investment at all in this once great course for the last number of years. Having played and enjoyed this course for many years in the past it saddens me to see it neglected so badly. Will not be booking it again unless it improves greatly and gets back to where it once was.
