Ajax Prepares for Title Challenge with Stay at Luxurious Amendoeira Golf Resort

Holland’s most decorated football club enjoys training camp at stunning Algarve resortamidst outstanding facilities and world-class golf courses

Amendoeira Golf Resort recently welcomed one of the most successful clubs in history, as Ajax Amsterdam took full advantage of its world-class facilities and stunning accommodation in preparation for the second half of the Dutch football season.

Equipped with FIFA-standard five-a-side and natural grass football pitches alongside its two world-class golf courses, elegant apartments and well-appointed gym, the Algarve destination provided idyllic surroundings for the four-time European Cup and UEFA Champions League winners for its mid-season training camp from January 2-8.

“We’d like to wish Ajax the very best for the rest of the season and hope to welcome them back to experience our excellent amenities and first-rate service again in the near future.”

Ajax Manager, Peter Bosz, who is looking to overturn Feyernoord’s five-point lead at the top of the Eredivisie table, was delighted by the level of facilities offered at Amendoeira. He said: “The weather is fantastic, Amendoeira has fantastic football fields, the players are treated well and eat well. The people have been really friendly and ask if everything is OK or if they can do something more to help. I love it over here.”

The visit of The Netherland’s most decorated club follows trips by several other football teams in recent months, including English Football League Championship outfits Fulham and Derby County, who spent time in Portugal ahead of the 2016-17 season.

As well as outstanding sporting and conference facilities, Amendoeira is famed for its award winning golf courses, designed by golfing legends: the late, great Christy O’Connor Jnr and six-time Major Champion, Sir Nick Faldo.

Its immaculately presented football pitches are reserved exclusively for use by professional teams which, alongside luxury accommodation in the on-site apartments, has established Amendoeira Sports Club as a firm favourite with football clubs.

Mr Chris Howell, Chairman, Oceânico Group, commented:“As one of the most famous football clubs in the world, we were delighted to host Ajax Amsterdam for their recent training camp. Their positive feedback was a ringing endorsement for our staff and of the quality of facilities at Amendoeira, where we provide world-class accommodation alongside excellent meeting spaces and pristine football pitches.

“We’d like to wish Ajax the very best for the rest of the season and hope to welcome them back to experience our excellent amenities and first-rate service again in the near future.”

Amendoeira Golf Resort offers personalised packages to suit each team’s individual needs, with dedicated staff, accommodation in private apartments and a specialist sports menu served throughout the stay.
