Nice course, quite short with some drivable par 4s and would suit higher handicap players nicely whilst still providing enough of a challenge for better players. Starter was a bit officious, unnecessary so, in my opinion. Some nice holes set amongst some very old olive trees.clubhouse is an old quaint wooden building.
Nice course in relatively good condition (03.11.2023). Not so crowded but still very well attended
Course ok but fairways need more water. Overall rating good and service good
Very slow due to 4 fourballs playing a texas scramble and refusing to let faster players behind through, ignoring course etiquette. Course representatives did nothing despite being aware of the situation. 4 and a half hours for a round here is unacceptable.
The course is presented well and is never over crowded
Enjoyable course to play and good value.
Always a pleasure to play here
Course was in good condition and so were the greens. Pro shop was friendly and helpful.
Course has seen some major improvements. Staff really nice and helpful. Can't wait to play again!
Well spaced tee times course good for this exceptionally hot weather.
Carfully mantained course. Bunkers to hard. Greens ok. Friendly staff
Excellent as usual from service desk, to bar, to course and back to bar
A relatively short course but enjoyable all the same.
Some of the buggies were not in the best of condition. Dirty windscreens and some ripped seats.
Benamor is always a nice course to play, not too long or demanding and is pretty well maintained. The green fees do seem to have increased more than other clubs in recent years, though.
A very enjoyable round of golf on a well kept course that has just the right balance of challenges and is also forgiving.

Played here a few times over the years and was never impressed. Now that I have tried numerous courses in the Algarve I realise Benamor is actually friendly to high handicappers. It’s still a challenge but no stupid Great Lakes to tee over or pencil thin fairways. I will return again and again.

Second time we have played this course. It has a few short par 4s which give you a decision to make on the tee. Lots of nice holes and the marshals keep the pace of play going. All the staff are very friendly, overall a good holiday golf course which you could walk without much trouble
Easy to play the course because Shorter total yardage.
Benamor informed me that i should have reserved a buggy and that i was lucky that one was available!
Super people and great food and course beautifully presented
A short but testing course, some nice holes and good facilities , would definitely go back.
This is a very good course in excellent condition, the greens are spectacular. Obviously a lot of work has gone into its upkeep. Staff are brilliant. The members of this society are always friendly and accommodating, thank you.
I really enjoyed playing Benamor. Obviously it’s not a long course but does have some tricky holes and the greens are very slick. Overall Course condition was very good
A short but testing course, some nice holes and good facilities , would definitely go back.
Pleasant course, but found it not as well maintained as the courses we had played earlier in the week. Staff were helpful.
There with Jim and Chez Carlos. Wonderful outing.
There with Jim and Chez Carlos. Wonderful outing.
Wonderful open course with plenty of challenges
Average course easy walking not great layout but condition was brilliant especially the greens. They need to sort tees out
Nice course. Not too long so that's great for old folks like me. Rather hilly, so that gives you a good work-out. Fast greens, whew!
Benamor is a pleasant course, but the bunkers are in poor condition
A Henry Cotton design, enjoyable test, will definitely enjoy more on the 2nd visit, I will definitely benefit for knowing the course a little.
Greens and fairways were very good. Tees, average. The bunkers were a disgrace! Worst I've ever played. Not raked since heavy rains two days ago. They should have been GUR until they were repaired
It’s a nice simple course, definitely not an A course and consequently vastly overpriced.
Excellent service for a nice course
Course and greens very good today , made very welcome throughout the day. Will definitely play again.
i went several times on holidays with Teetimes, played more than 20 courses with you. This is the first time i will write something negative, and very negative. Not about the course, which is fine, but about the personnel. Not all the personnel, but about the marshalls, who are not portuguese, who are impolite, rough, brutal, and discriminate. I really think at that point that this course does not deserve to be in you short list. Long story short, we played in 3h 45 min. we played 13 holes attached to the team ahead of us. tee box 14, the so called marshall was waiting for us, and without any welcoming sign was indicating me the yellow tee box. "sorry sir, i am playing from the white ones" from there he followed us ALL THE HOLE without saying a word. Mid all 15 he is yelling - no hi, no please, no thanks - at us - at least 40 meters away - to speed up cause we are 5 min disconnected from the team ahead. It is too late for this kind of comment, the speed is already set, max we can gain 10 min. We arrive at 18 in 3h45min, just after the team ahead of us. And guess what, our marshall is there, waiting, on the terrasse .... for the team behind us arriving without a single remark 25 min later !!! unbelieveable !! I have never seen this. And the worst in this , is that this marshall thinks he is right. And such an event makes all minor things to pop up, like the rental trolleys. They are more expensive than anywhere else. and on top of being expensive, are locked like supermarket trolleys where you need to place 1 euro . really ? well, do not hesitate to contact me, cause this course wants members, not guests. If they do not want this ressource, better for teetimes to send golfers to other places
Very nice course and if you are on your game you can shoot below your handicap as it is only 5500 yards from yellows.Greens bunkers tees and fairways all in very good condition and would recommend a bite and drink to eat afterwards as prices very reasonable indeed(omelette and chips €7.50!????).Staff all very friendly as well All in all a very pleasant experience but at €84 a round a bit pricey but we have just entered high season now.
Interesting course and maintained reasonably well. Main problem golf club trying to squeeze as many players as possible on to the 18 holes. 5 hrs not acceptable
As always, the best service for any kind of Golf reservation
Adrian Fraser Jones
First time playing , well impressed . Fantastic value and the greens were in excellent condition. Nice club house and facilities
Lovely golf course always friendly very underrated excellent condition
Beautifully maintained course Excellent service at the clubhouse Who can ask for anythingore
Great day out
Enjoyable round. Great course, well maintained with picturesque par 3’s
Welcoming enjoyed the course no waiting around. Greens not as good as some of the courses we played but acceptable for time of year
If I lived near Tavira this is the club that I would try to join. The work they have done on the course over the past few years has enhanced it beyond belief. It is not a championship course but what a course, it is a delight to play. The atmosphere in the club house, pro's shop and the restaurant is exceptional, we are not members but we were made to feel like well established members with nothing being too difficult. The breakfast in the restaurant, before golf, is highly recommended.
Enjoyed the whole experience. We were welcomed in the professionals shop, given our clubs and buggy which we had preordered. Staff very friendly when we stopped for a drink and some food.
Return to Benamor after 10 months. Course in excellent condition. Staff friendly and efficient - reception, on course and bar/restaurant.
Lovely course, less intimidating which is why we love it
Excellent course great service
Benamor is now probably our favourite course when we tour to the Algarve. Compared to other courses in the region it's quiet which is surprising given the course is in fabulous condition and has lots to offer in terms of variety of holes and challenges, especially on the back 9. A plus is that it's walkable with trollies and coming back to the clubhouse at hole 9 means a quick pit-stop is possible. We're all looking forward to playing again next year!
Golf course in very good condition.
Jonathan Ashley Pickles
Nice course but probably too busy, felt we were waiting on most shots,back nine was better than the front. Enjoyed our day, but there are other courses we prefer
Very enjoyable round of golf
Nice golfcourse, not too difficult. Front nine very short par 4’s and fairways close to each other. Back nine were much more challenging!
Course and greens OK . So was the service..
Fairways a bit bare and overplayed
Benamor staff were very accommodating with me changing my mind about which day I would play. On the course it was a little slow, but the staff did warn me, so it was not a big issue.
As usual an enjoyable round
Very normal course nothing spectacular, seems to be Swedish enclave Very, very nice staff
Course OK green far to slow
A lovely golf course in great condition. Bouncy fairways and fast true greens.
Fairways good condition Greens fast with some extremely difficult positions Bunkers very poor
Efficient and relaxed service from the staff and course in very good condition
Fantastic course in great condition, fairways were green and well watered, greens were in great shape, fast and well looked after. The clubhouse is in a great spot over looking the first tee and 9th green. Great value all round with friendly staff.
Very nice and well managed course. It’s not long but the greens had subtle contours. The staff in the office and bar were welcoming and efficient.
Hello Maria, service by BENAMOR is excellent. Today I lost one club and the Marchall asked as after our play if we lost it. Perfect!!!
Nice staff,golf cours in good condition.????
Very underrated course. We find it very good although this year it was extremely busy just under 5 hrs. Overall as a starter course for my tour it’s perfect
Benamor although a short course(5750 yards from Yellows) is quite tight and the greens are very fast. Overall condition of course was good and a lovely clubhouse/bar where the food was excellent and very good value for money.I thought green fees were a little bit steep at €71 but if you play in early September you only pay about€40 which is excellent value
The course itself was enjoyable but the quality was either disappointing
Considering we are in peak season, it was a strange time to topdress the greens and tee boxes! The buggies were horrendous! We won’t be back
Very enjoyable experience and friendly staff
Great, quick and friendly service
Got very tired in the heat and wondered where all the benches are at the tees! Course in good conditio.n
Benamor course was in good condition. Trolley hire easy to do & good value. I was paired with a member for the round & it was enjoyable.
Not long, but challenging nonetheless
Really friendly staff nothing too much trouble will come back again.
We have played Benamor on a number of occasions, it is a course which is ideal for those who don’t hit the ball huge distances but it is a good test of golf with very quick greens. All of our party were very impressed and very much enjoyed the course.
Very good welcome, I played with à couple of swedes and the course was very nice
Nice course bit pricy and a bit slow with inexperienced golfers ahead of us but overall good experience
Benamor is a friendly golf course that provides a challenge to golfers of all abilities. For the very low handicap golfer it offers the opportunity to go under net par. Consequently it can be busy. The course is in great condition.
Excellent days golf. Not to crowded.
Benamor was fairly dry but all enjoyed the golf
Extremely busy, played here many time but never played that slow before. However greens were perfect, relaxing course and the staff were very friendly. Pleasure to play on the course. Played with another English gentleman who was a member and invited me to play again.
The club was great in that we went a day early by mistake and they still allowed us to play. We were held up by two four balls who should have let us through but kept ignoring us. Not the clubs fault. However the course was in good condition. Buggies were relatively cheap to hire as compared to other Algarve courses. Probably the right amount of challenge in the course for us.
Excellent as usual though a bit slow
Everything was fine apart from greens and tees being sanded whilst we were playing
As a newbie I was made very welcome by Chez Carlos members. Staff at Benamor were as usual very helpful. The course was in good order although the weather was foul. My actual golf was the worst I have played in a while but despite this I enjoyed the experience due to the company and the positive supporting atmosphere of both Chez Carlos Society and Benamor. Looking forward to future outings with Chez Carlos and to improve performance on the courses and to the ''craic'' with fellow members.
Very good an excellent course for holiday golf
Lovely course with fairly easy walking, holes aren't long but can be tricky. Thank you for organising our golf Marisa.
Lovely views, holes are a bit short but a very pleasant experience
Ingrid van Loenhout
The course is averige. Lots of sand.
We play Benamor each year (twice this year) and thoroughly enjoy our visits. The course is always in good condition, the holes are fair for beginners and the more experienced golfer, the staff are friendly and the beer afterwards is always cold!! It is also good value for money compared to the western Algarve.
Very good course
Very friendly underrated golf course we love it a good course to kick off our tour
excellent CONDITION BUT A BIT SLOW!
not to difficult to play, beautiful course !
Course in good condition and few people playing soma good fast round.
A lovely course. Challenging but good. Lovely condition.
Excellent condition and no waiting.
Nice golf course. Holes are very close to eachother and mainly straight and narrow. Few lakes and almost all bunkers at greens, but all in all a good experience.
Really enjoyed a tricky course. Would come back for sure
UK country-style course, nice welcome and friendly locals. Some electric walking trolleys for hire would be a good idea.
Very nice course, but the greens were very disappointing
Excellent and fine for our last day!
Well maintained course with some nice features
Course was very busy some delays
Un parcours amusant à l entretien très correct . Des vallons , des dodlegs ,,un peu d eau à franchir. Tout pour passer un bon moment golfique.
On my recent trip I played the Benamor golf course which I enjoyed. On my arrival I was greeted in the Pro shop where I presented my voucher and I hired clubs for my round €25 . The staff were friendly and welcoming. I was put out with 2 members as I was a single player. The course was busy but it moved well. The round took about 4 hours as the time allotted on the course. The clubhouse served food and had an extensive menu. I was made most welcome by all the people I met and I had a great day.
Course was fine, nice Terrace and efficient reception
Unfortunately only played seven holes due to the very wet weather.
Pity about the greens being tined but the course was in good condition. Buggies very expensive 20 to 25 Euro should be the maximum in line with the majority of courses in UK
Good morning everyone. on that Saturday morning we played at benamor and the 4 ball were absolutely gentleman, so much so that I felt so good that I score 40 points with 2 blobs on the par 5. Like the course and I will play there again. Wish Mr Douglas happy return to the UK. we hope to see you in Portugal again soon. Best Regards Franc Coutinho
Course slightly unkept around tees and bunkers.
First time at Benamor. The course was in good condition and the greens were running true. The organisation was excellent as always.
Another great day at Benamore with lovely company and great fun back in Chez Carlos Restraurant after the golf , many thanks, looking forward to our next game
Course is in all round good condition, not crowded, had an enjoyable round of golf.
Course in good condition, not to long but some challenging holes,service from all staff excellent.
Course in excellent condition. Hardly anyone on course this morning and two of us went round in 3 hours.
The course is in good condition, it is not a long course but some holes are blind from the tee and it would help to have some marker in the distance for direction. Staff are extremely pleasant and helpful
Average - cost if 25 euros for junior was a bit high
Very fast and effective service for the booking, golf course in perfect conditions :-D
Not a long golf course but requesting some management. Great condition and all áreas are very well manicured. Typical holiday golf course
Just played Benamor course I good condition. Greens better than last week.
Enjoyed Benamor course very much. Greens had been tyned and hollowed previous week so not as true as normal. The tee times given to us were different to the ones Benamor had. We were given 0840hrs and Benamor had 0904hrs. No major problem but I could have done with an extra 25 minutes “ beauty sleep “
Enjoyable but not the best.
Great holiday golf course. Perfect for a relaxing day of golf. Tees, fairways, greens and roughs all in great condition.
In very good condition. Not too crowded.
Course in very good condition. Tees, fairways and greens really good. Bunkers not great but this was due to the heavy rain in the area over the last week. All in all a most enjoyable day out.
SASSARD - MARIE
I always enjoy Benamor. Yesterday we dodgedthe showers and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon, even though the pace of play was very slow. A lot of people making the best of the weather. The course was in very good shape and the greens were the best we have played this year.
Course in good condition. Service at clubhouse friendly and quick. Course not very difficult and short. Could be one to start with in a holiday.
We thoroughly enjoyed the course albeit slightly shorter than preferred. The green were fast and quite difficult to read. Reception was very helpful.
Nice course was in good condition
Mr Peter Ellam
Staff as always very helpful. Course well maintained and greens very good and true. Good VFM.
Lovely well established and challenging golf course. Reception staff not so friendly as at other two courses we played
A clever little course in the most beautiful setting. Great club house and welcoming staff. Today the greens were lightening quick. Very tough. Well done to those who ended with good scores.
Wonderful Course. Unfortunatly we had to follow members in a Medal competition. it took us a long time
Pleasant course in good condition. However, no ranger and near 5 hour round rather spoiled the experience.
Mr Stephen Macguffie
Poor golf course and overcrowded
Malcolm Stuart Russell
Good course which we all enjoyed. Excellent food and service.
nice holiday course.
Very good course, well maintained.
Beautiful. One of the most picturesque courses on the Algarve. Not a long course but with enough intrigue to make it quite interesting. Today the course was in good condition and the greens were in great shape. Soft enough to take spin/stop and true. Great reception and club house. Favourite hole 10th - par 3.
Our favourite course of the trip. It was in superb condition and the whole group enjoyed playing there.
If you want a course with charm, then Benamor has charm in spades. Not a long course but still needs to be played with respect. I think the 10th hole is one of the best par 3's you will find anywhere. The course today was in great condition, with good fairways and firm greens.
good golf course, poor driving range especially for short game
It has been a long time since I last played Benamor. I had forgotten how nice it is. This is not a big course but you still need to think your way round. The greens were excellent, quite quick and true. There has been a lot of work done on the course and it is looking better than ever. What a treat...
In my opinion, the green fee for Benamor has gotten way too high, for this kind of course. I rate it asvery mich a B course based on challenge, condition and over all experience. It is not worth thr green fee.
Course in excellent form
A really lovely day out. Good company, food and wine. The course is in good condition, but the greens a bit slow.
Benamor was in very good condition, the drizzle was annoying but hardly your fault
lovely friendly course and staff, course in good condition would play again.
pleasant club course in good condition
Course in good condition
Benamor is a lovely undulating course, free of housing developments around it and a fair test of golfing abilities. The greens are in fine condition and fairways good. It was a bit wet in places, but did not affect the overall experience. Ian H
Great little course
Course in great condition in September which was impressive given the long, hot dry summer.
Lovely picturesque course and nice clubhouse
COURSE IN GOOD CONDITION. CHECK IN TROUBLE FREE. SPEED OF PLAY GOOD. BAR STAFF WARM AND FRIENDLY.
Great course with great views. Very forgiving and relatively short so good for us mid to high handicaps.
john michael o'neill
Lovely course in fantastic condition
Good time to play as not held up or had groups being us
Corse in bad condition and they have agreed to pay buggy fees next time
Up to the normal standard we have come expect.
Great. Lovely club
We didn't travel to Benamor, because of the rain. We had played her before, and liked the course.
Chez Carlos Golf Society
The owners of Quinta de Benamor, the Martins Dias family, approached the late Sir Henry Cotton to make a concept design for an 18-hole course back in 1986. The final result is a delightful par 71 golf course of 5.500 metres (6.100 yards), with mountain views to the north and sea views to the south. Indigenous olive, cork, carob, fig and almond trees, many centuries old, feature prominently as does some strategically placed water features. Benamor has a worthy reputation for being a well kept and manicured course – it did not disappoint. The greens were lush and deceptive – quick down and much slower up. If traveling from afar combine your visit with some lunch or dinner at one of the many fine fish restaurants on the seafront at Cabanas (just opposite the entrance to the club).
Chez Carlos Golf Society
The game this week took the Society to the Eastern Algarve again, an area of natural beauty and a popular destination in search of those seeking a taste of ‘real’ Portugal. We last played here in November '11. The owners of Quinta de Benamor, the Martins Dias family, approached the late Sir Henry Cotton to make a concept design for an 18-hole course back in 1986. The final result is a delightful par 71 golf course of 5.500 metres (6.100 yards), with mountain views to the north and sea views to the south. Indigenous olive, cork, carob, fig and almond trees, many centuries old, feature prominently as does some strategically placed water features. It is a delightful course to play. Summer has seemed to arrive quickly this week and a band of x20 players assembled in hot conditions for the weekly Individual Stableford competition. Once again the men played off the white tees today principally as it is a better course than the ‘yellow’ yet only 300 meters longer. The course was in great condition with lush fairways. Several of our players had never played here before and they were all impressed. The East Algarve has some great golf so do give it a try.
