The decision to build a golf course on the land of Quinta de Benamor, near Tavira on Portugal's Algarve, was made in 1986. The Martins Dias family invited the Sir Henry Cotton to make a concept design for an 18-hole course, which eventually opened in 2000. Sir Henry Cotton was inspired by the beautiful old church (which sits next to the clubhouse), and by the wonderful rural location.
