The Oceanico Academy Course is an excellent golf course for beginners or anyone wanting to sharpen up their skills with a short game. Designed by Steve Richardson and located between the Oceanico Faldo Course and the Christy O’Conner Course, this flood lit 9-hole par-27 has been built to the same standards and serves as an excellent supporting feature to the Faldo and the O’Conner courses. Although no hole is greater than 105 metres long, players will find plenty of the usual hazards to practice their short game. The 7th is the feature hole on the course, where two of the teeing options play over water. The Oceanico Academy Course is located on the Amendoeira Golf Resort just 35 minutes´ drive from Faro Airport and will become a firm favourite with all the family and a must to play alongside its big brothers.
