New O'Connor course opens in Portugal
14th October 2008
The latest spectacular course designed by Christy O’Connor Jnr has been officially opened at Oceânico’s new Amendoeira Golf Resort.
The Oceânico O’Connor Course at Amendoeira Golf Resort is a par 72 championship course, which features lush landscaping and orange groves in a low-lying valley where large areas of lakes and watercourses demand accurate play and creative shot making.
For Oceânico Group, the major player in the golf, property and leisure resort markets in Portugal, the opening of the Oceânico O’Connor Course at Amendoeira, in addition to the Oceânico Faldo Course, is the next significant step forward in their ambitious plans for the Algarve and beyond. Over 400 luxury villas and apartments as well as the Amendoeira Sporting Club, which will include tennis courts, football pitch and swimming pool, are also under construction, making Amendoeira the most significant new development in the Algarve in recent years.
The official opening of the two Amendoeira courses comes ahead of this weeks Portugal Masters (16th to 19th October), which will again be hosted by the critically acclaimed Oceânico Victoria golf course, designed by Arnold Palmer, for the second consecutive year.
With the opening of Amendoeira, Oceânico Golf has increased its portfolio to seven championship venues in the Algarve, as the company also owns the five courses at Vilamoura - Oceânico Victoria, The Oceânico Old Course, Oceânico Millennium, Oceânico Laguna and Oceânico Pinhal. As a result, Oceânico Golf is setting the standard for golf courses in the region.
