Top 5 Facts About The Benamor Golf Course

It’s the dream of every golf enthusiast to play a round or two at famous golf courses without spending a fortune. Luckily, there is one destination that offers them both quality and affordability. Yes, we’re referring to the Algarve region in Portugal. This tiny piece of land in southern Portugal is home to some of the best golf courses in the world.

After hearing so much about the courses in the Algarve, I decided to visit one of the finest the region has to offer – The Benamor Golf Course in Tavira. In this article I share some of my most cherished memories of my time at the Benamor Golf Course.

The course is world class

Amateur golfers seek fun and experienced ones look for challenging conditions to test their skills. The Benamor Golf Course offers both these elements in abundance. Those who look for postcard worthy sceneries won’t be disappointed either. The architects have retained most of the original vegetation of the landscape while creating this course. What I found particularly interesting about this course is that it’s very cleverly designed. The tees, fairways, bunkers, water hazards, and greens have been strategically placed to test the accuracy of the most advanced golf players.


Weather wise I’ve been unlucky many times in the past. One of the reasons I chose Tavira is because it guarantees 300 sunshine days. Even though the sun beats down for the better part of the year the weather isn’t hot and humid. The Benamor Golf Course is blessed with a gentle breeze and mind weather even during peak of winter.

The commute

The Benamor Golf Course is located at an easy distance from all the other attractions of Tavira. It won’t take you long to reach the course from the place you’re staying, wherever that may be. This Sir Henry Cotton creation has all the picturesque qualities to hold your attention – it’s challenging, peaceful, and offers stunningly beautiful scenic views of the surrounding. But, if you’re looking for a change, other tourist attractions are not too far from the Benamor Golf Course.

The practice facilities

It’s my habit to brush up my golfing skills before I try my luck at any golf course. I spent quality time at the excellent practice facilities in the Benamor Golf Course. They offer the conditions to work on all golf skills like drive, putting, etc. Along with the driving range and putting green, the course offers golf lessons at the Golf Academy. The pro shop at the course boasts of a wide range of footwear and sportswear for both men and women.

The clubhouse and restaurant

When it’s time to relax after a round of golf I found the restaurant, that’s part of the clubhouse at the course, with relaxing. I spent some time enjoying the visual treats from the terrace. The staff at the restaurant is welcoming and very friendly.
