The championship course opened in 1966 and was completely rebuilt during 1994/95, maintaining its original features.
The first tee is just a few yards from the hotel, and the course is an excellent test of golf with numerous trees, water hazards, bunkers, big greens and large teeing areas. The Portuguese Open has been held here several times, most recently in 2004. Not a long course off the yellows, and easily walkable due to flat terrain and short walks from green to the next tee making this a perennial favourite. Penina also features two 9-hole courses by Sir Henry Cotton: The Resort Course, a fun Par 35; and The Academy Course, a Par 30 ideal for beginners.
