Oceânico O'Connor Jnr.

Alcantarilha, Albufeira

Perfectly complementing the Faldo Course, whilst taking advantage of the rich valley soil in contrast to the arid hillside, Christy O'Connor Jnr's course at Amendoeira offers no less of a challenge.|Large areas of water demand accurate play and creative shot making, and these lakes and streams are to be maintained as a wildlife sanctuary.|The front nine holes encounter a number of lakes, the third being recognized by a Moorish relic situated on an island in the adjacent lake.|The course also has version of the Amen Corner, starting at the seventh. There is a lake which runs from the 9th, through the 8th and into the 7th, so it is a kind of a chain reaction and the 7th will be the first of it.|The 9th is a real key hole of the golf course, the lake running not only to the right off the tee, but also to the left of the second shot. It is almost a two–part golf hole.‘ Hole 10 leads play away from the northern boundary, setting up the challenge for the inward nine.|Large bodies of water and meandering watercourses will test players all the way to the eighteenth.|The 12th hole is steeped in modern history and is guarded by the same lake that runs along the 8th hole, sitting on the lake with the water this time on the right, just to give a bit of variety.|Christy's 18th hole brings the course to a fantastic finish, a gentle climb with the river running along the right hand side. 'This hole is a humdinger once you get up here and look down on the golf course, you will feel you have been blessed.'
