Course: O´Connor CourseLocation: AmendoeiraCourse: Christy O´Connor JnrEstablished: 2008Par: 72 – four par 3´s, ten par 4´s, four par 5´sSignature Hole: 17This course truly complements Faldo´s 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. Christy designed the course with intensions of creating the atmosphere and beauty of the traditional orange vineyards of Portugal into his course. He successfully managed this task due to the 5th hole which is surrounded by orange vineyards to both sides creating a magnificent start to this fabulous course.
