Designed by Christy O’Connor Jnr., this course complements the neighbouring Oceanico Faldo Course and also takes full advantage of being situated in a fertile valley. Its various water features demand accuracy and test from all golfers, and the rich topsoil has been skillfully landscaped and planted with mature palm trees, affording a lush, ornamental setting like an extensive oasis.
This course has tees that are generally connected to the fairways, but its greater overall distance, the water hazards and big greens provide its challenge.
Christy's 18th hole brings the course to a fantastic finish, a gentle climb with the river running along the right hand side. 'This hole is a humdinger; once you get up here and look down on the golf course, you will feel you have been blessed.'

Clubhouse is majestic, facing both ending holes, faldo and o…
This course stands out alot. Very well designed. One of the best looking club houses ive seen and same can be said for the golf course. Championship worthy easily. Specially off the back tees. Greatly maintained tee boxes and greens. Can be bit pricy but you will see why once you have gotten the first couple shots out.
