The Penina Championship Course is the most brilliant of Sir Henry Cotton's designs. The triple winner of the British open, later a course designer, was one of the first to recognise the Algarve's enormous potential as a golfing paradise. The quality and success of the Penina course encourages the construction of many other courses in the Algarve.

The Championship Course opened in 1966, and although totally rebuilt in 1994/95, it still maintains its original features. It is a fairly flat, wooden course, with countless bunkers, almost four hundred thousand trees, several lakes, wide greens and a vast tee area, making the course a true championship test.

Penina also boats two nine-hole courses, also designed by Sir Henry Cotton: the Resort Course, a charming par 35 (2,987m); and the Academy Course, a short par 30 (1,851m).
