HistoryEdit

In 1966 it was the first course to be built in the Algarve. The resort's 18-hole Championship Course, founded by John Stilwell and designed by Sir Henry Cotton was originally called The Penina and has been the venue for the Portuguese Open on many occasions, most recently in 2006. There are also two 9-hole courses, the Resort Course and the Academy Course.[1]
