Course: Penina Resort 9 + 9Location: PortimaoCourse Designer: Sir Henry CottonEstablished: 1966Par: 35 – two par 3´s, six par 4´s, one par 5´sSignature Hole: 8The quality and the success of this course encouraged the subsequent construction of many other courses that now exist in the region. The championship course opened in 1966 and has been completely rebuilt during 1994/95, maintaining its main original features. It is a fairly flat parkland type course with almost four hundred thousand trees, plenty of water, many bunkers, with wide greens and a vast tee area, making this a real championship course. A new lake has been built to protect the green of hole 5. The undulations on the fairway of hole 9, five new bunkers together with more water around the green of hole 13 (which became a small island), deeper bunkers and new tees are features added to the original layout.
