The Penina Golf Course (now known as the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course) was the first ever golf course to be developed in Portugal and without doubt the founding father of golf in the Algarve. Three-time British Open champion, the late Sir Henry Cotton built the course over an old rice field. Despite the land seeming to be unsuitable for golf, Cotton took the initiative to renew the British connection with golf in a country that had been established in the 19th Century.

The result of Sir Henry Cotton’s hard work is a course which has already hosted ten Portuguese Opens, among other top competitions. Your golf holiday at Penina Golf Resort allows you to follow in the footsteps on the professional players and play on a competition standard golf course on the grounds of a five star resort.
