Castro Marim golf course has breathtaking mountain, river and sea views, all part of the spectacular scenery to be enjoyed by those wishing to take walks merely throughout the surrounding countryside.
The golf course has been designed to any level of golfer.
The challenging aspects of the golf course, whilst providing interest to the expert, are also a test to the ability of the average handicap golfer and yet remain pleasurable to both.
A driving range, chipping and putting green have also been built so as to provide ever important practice facilities.
These are supervised by a team of golf professionals who are more than happy to assist you in improving your game.
The entire golf course is irrigated by an underground so called 'leaky pipe' system. This enables golfers to play at times when courses with conventional aerial sprinklers would normally be unavailable.

Very nice and beautiful golf course. We had a very enjoyable afternoon.
Very nice 27-holes course. Very friendly reception. A buggy is recommended.
Staff very friendly course average buggy is a must to play

Castro Marim continues to be a jewel in the crown of golf courses in the eastern Algarve. The course is perfectly laid out and has just enough water hazards to cope with being a (very) high handicapper. Even for me there are par, even birdie, chances as well as incredibly difficult holes. CM consists of 3 nine hole courses, the Grouse, Guadiana & Atlantic. All three are superb, on the day you are advised which two courses you play to make up the 18 holes, we played Grouse and Guadiana. The clubhouse facilities are excellent and the staff friendly. One tip, do not arrive before 8am as the facilities are closed until then.
Played here quite a few times,always enjoyable
The staff are very helpful & friendly. The course is very playable & is recovering from the winter months. The greens are excellent, fast but also very receptive. Enjoyed my round and scored well. This is a course that gets better every time I play it. Local knowledge of the course is needed to score well.
Excellent golf course with holes that make you think. Greens were quick and rolled very true. Clubhouse is excellent and the staff were very helpful.
Very windy but nice course. Like to play this without the w/o d
Lovely game of golf though we all played pretty badly!
Course is shorter than most with some blind tee shots. Condition good overall and some pretty holes. Could do with improving the signage for the holes and how to get to them.
We played all right, but Castro Marin was very busy, especially the first course (we played the Grouse and the Atlantic course). We didn't think the course looked very nice, at least not the way we remembered it. The receptionist was very friendly Unfortunately, there was no starter or marshall
Roll Up Boys
Very friendly staff. Both on the check in and the Bar area. Greens were excellent and good sand in bunkers. Very enjoyable even if we did lose a lot of balls in the trees. Course was bust but they still did not have a buggy bar . Will be back again in June.
Very average course good par threes some crazy designed holes . Condition of the course dreadful . Clubhouse and staff superb
Norbert van der Plas
Wonderfull round on firm fairways and speedy greens. Great offer 2 persons including buggy.
Castro marim course was in very poor condition .. The teeing areas were dreadful completely worn out with loads of sand Fairways were worsedcive seen in agarve . The greens were poor
Dreadful course, clubhouse and service. Terrible tees, fairways poor, bunkers full of weeds, greens diseased and lumpy. Last round of 7 in Portugal, left us with poor memories. Thankfully all the others were great.
Everything is ok.Thank you
Poor quality greens
Staff were friendly when checking in & getting buggy. I've always liked the layout of the courses at Castro Marim. Today I played Grouse & Guadiana. Sadly the quality of those courses was poor, not something I've noticed in the past here. In particular, the greens and tee boxes were well below standard. I hope this is temporary.
A very nice 27 hole course, unfortunately we could not get a cart and walking this course teaches you a few lessons. Very nice staff.
Nice Course in good condition.
Too many raised greens, greens in poor condition and it’s not a good idea to put a four ball out followed by four 2 balls.
We played this course almost every year. We are disappointed with the condition of the place.
It is excellen the villa is splendid, clean and well kept… nice pool and 3 x 9 holes of good golf. At reception very hospitality people .. great
The layout of the course is fantastic, lots of elevated tees and greens. Overall condition of the course is good but the greens have some invasive grass in them which makes putting difficult.
Very nice set up. Good club house and facilities. Golf course was in great repair. Some other players but no traffic jambs. Very pleasant
Castro Marim course was in pretty good condition. The buggy was needed as the course is hilly. Covid arrangements were good and staff were friendly.
Nice friendly staff and a superb course. We played Atlantic/grousse and the layout is great! Although the fairways are not always too green, what can you expect @ 39deg.C?
The staff at Castro Marim were very friendly and welcoming. Because of the Covid closure the course needs some further recovery to get the greens back to what I have experienced there in the past
Enjoyed the course. Helps to know the layout. Not long but demands accuracy. In fair condition. Overall we thought it was good value.
Excellent course in great condition. It was busy but we were only held up briefly. Check in was efficient. The clubhouse is a quality building and they provide good food.
Great fun as usual and only had to wait on one hole
We have played Castro Marim many times, it is an interesting course but is quite hilly so it can be enjoyed most if you have a buggy, thankfully teetimes.pt provided buggies as part of our deal. The course was in good order and we had a very pleasant and reasonably priced meal afterwards.
sehr gepflegter Platz; es fahlen Abschlagstafeln,aus denen das Layout des jeweiligen Loches mit Entfernungen erkennbar wird. Sehr schnelle Greens.
Very enjoyable, course in great condition, very friendly staff
Probably the right amount of challenge for our games. Some reachable par 5s but some daunting tee shots over water to make it interesting. Hit it straight and you have no worries. Course is in good nick and greens running true. Buggies could do with coolers on which would be a nice touch. Also a decent price to hire and not a rip off. Surrounding area needs more landscaping off the fairways to make it more appealing on the eye. Clubhouse very good. Food good value and service really helpful and polite.
Have played this course many times. Always a great challenge. Good condition, and clubhouse facilities excellent
Played Castro Marim over the last week and a thoroughly enjoyable experience it was. The Grouse and Guadiana courses were in excellent condition and the greens were some of the truest I have putted on. Excellent practice facilities and a superb club house.
We had a lovely day at Castro Marim, thank you for booking the golf for us. We first played here 25 years ago when the clubhouse was at the first tee on the Atlantico course and we have been coming back regularly since those faraway days, still love it.
Tee off times pt was excellent the conditions of the golf course not the best.
Excellent service: fast and friendly.
Top custumer Service. Maria is fantastic. Always friendly and very customer related. Coul not be better in service. Bernd Neidhardt
Castro Marim consists of 3 sets of nines holes. Each are different in character and quality. The Grouse has a number of holes with wide fairways and long carries. Guardiana is more mature again with some long carries some over water. Finally Atlantico which is towards the sea. Ore mature narrower tree lined fairways. Some strange tee positions having to drive over the last green. Greens were acceptable but not great. Overall pleasant course nice clubhouse and one we enjoy playing
Great service again
Beautiful challenging course in immaculate condition.
My group thought it was outstanding value.
Have played Castro Marim for many years the course was in the best condition ever.
Marijke van der Veen
Very nice golfcourse. Well maintained and beautifully placed in its surroundings. Buggy recommended.
Nice course. Well maintained. Many scenic views. Carry some extra balls with you ;-)
Impressed on arrival - nice drive and entrance to eh club. 4 of us played the Grouse & Guadiana courses. The first 2 holes had us wondering if it was worth the drive from Quinta Do Lago - the first cut was "rough" making it difficult to find our balls and the greens weren't the best. However, the course then opened out and we were pleasantly surprised with the all round condition of the next 7 holes of the Grouse course and the even nicer Guadiana course. The views are quite something to behold, adding more enjoyment to the round. Staff and service in the pro shop and bar were excellent, as were the facilities. Extremely good value for money. We all came away thankful that we'd made the effort and will look forward to visiting Castro Marim again on our next trip. Tamar at Teetimes.PT provided an excellent, personal booking service - highly recommended and will certainly use them again for future arrangements.
Friendly people , great course, challenging and different holes. And them bringing round ice cold towels during the heat of the game -excellent touch
Impressive hilly course which offers real challenges and beautiful views. In good condition and greens playing well.
Lovely golf course with great views and picturesque holes
The course is a challenge if you are not a straight hitter but it is in excellent condition given the time of the year. There are several holes with superb views over the surrounding area and across into Spain. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. It is very good value for money.
very friendly , great course
RICHARD BARRY DAWSON
Arranging this through tee times was easy and straight forward. quick response for confirmation and good prices. Not impressed with CM pricing though, 5 euro for a hand cart!! most places are 1 euro or free!! Perhaps we won't visit that course again.
Ian Charles Mitchell
Played all 27 holes over two separate days. Course was in good condition and my friend and I had a couple of very good days.
Mario de Melo
Nice course configuration, well maintained , very enjoyable game.
Absolutely top value golf. Beautiful well maintained course, excellent accommodation and food
as always, it was good fun to play the course; good condition, friendly people - excellent!
Excellent if unusual course. Presents a good challenge. Very enjoyable!
I would not recommend to play this course. no grass on fairways and stonehard. Georg from Austria
Value for money???? Fairways in bad conditions Buggy's low battery.
Castro Marim Golf Resort ist eine sehr gut gepflegte Anlage, die Villen sind modern ausgestattet und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Die Mitarbeite in der Rezeption, im Proshop und im Restaurant sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Der Golfplatz liegt in schöner Natur, ruhig, und mit wunderschönen rund um Ausblicken, falls man sich dafür Zeit nimmt. Die Bahnen sind nicht langweilig, haben Eigencharakter und brauchen gute Spielstrategie.
First time,I thought the course was in poor condition,yet the club house and staff were very good.
Very good course condition and friendly staff
Really good experience
Played the Guardiana and Grouse combination. This was our first time here. Weather was superb for time of year so that helped. Apart from a loud Dutch couple behind had a great time. Course in excellent condition, some tee boxes could be better but no massive issue. Some blind shots from the tee which may play different next time! Overall a challenging course but very scorable and fair.
Es ist landschaftlich ein sehr schöner Plätz. Sehr abwechslungsreich. Guter Pflegezustand.
Course is in a very good shape, friendly staff and services
What an improvement to our last visit over 3 years ago. The club house has been newly renovated and the course redesigned to include three 9 hole courses . We played the Grouse & Guadiana courses which were in excellent condition. A real enjoyable days golf at a competitive price.
Ina van der Hout
Here we could play the 2 of us very quiet at twilight. Om the other courses we had to play with 2 other people. The course of Castro Marim is very beautiful with nice views.
Excellent service from Teetimes.pt in arranging my game at Castro Marim. The course was in very good condition despite the heavy rain yesterday and the staff at the club were very welcoming and helpful. One small negative was there was no pencil provided on the buggy, the first time I have ever encountered this.
Superb course and excellent friendly and helpful staff
Excellent customer service, could fault it all
Very impressive clubhouse and challenging course but played very well. Satnav or map needed to find it. For future recommendation for yourselves perhaps suggesting the need to book/reserve a buggie in advance.
Very good. Very friendly staff.
Great course and more forgiving than the nearby course quinta do vale. Definitely worth a visit and worth the trip from Vilamoura
A nice course but in reality too far from where we were staying. Some interesting holes, we played the Grouse and Guadiana combination, all fairways and greens in good shape. Bunker sand on a couple of holes wasn’t best ever ( so I’m told) Made to feel welcome at the course and in the clubhouse afterwards.
The course was in great condition, greens true and reasonably fast considering the hot and very dry weather that has gone on for the last few months, The majority of staff were very helpful and you could have a bit of banter with. Will definitely come again.
other than the greens being slow it was very good
Very good greens excellant
Had a fantastic round and the course was in great condition loved it
Great experience and lovely course
Very good and professional
Jan van Roekel
Course was very scruffy, tees and fairways disappointing. On the Grouse 9 the greens had been heavily sanded
Franco Di Fonzo
In a course with no indications, no birdie book and no GPS on the buggy, with holes with no visibility is impossible to play. Especially with so much wind. Experience not to be repeated.
Really fantastic course with great views and interesting holes. A hidden gem.
Very well looked after and a good course with excellent greens
Good course. However. Twilight golf and we had to leave the course at 7pm?
Good course, helpful staff, would have liked card to be presented as an 18 hole card rather than two nine hole cards and have to workout indices!
Mooie uitdagende baan met Prima greens. FAirways hard. Prachtige vergezichten. 19e hole goed...mag wat vriendelijker.
3 very nice 9 hole courses in good condition
Challenging course. All up and down maybe a buggy for the older golfer.
Very good course, fairway's could havcen been better
Course in GOOD condition
Fantastic course, super fast greens. Well maintained.
Enjoyable and got round in 3 hours
Mrs Teresa Gaughan
The course was in great condition with beautiful greens. Challenging at times but very playable. Staff were extremely helpful and very friendly which made for a very enjoyable round of golf.
Excellent course, will play again for sure, very nice staff.
Nous ne sommes pas satisfaits car nous devions joué Grouse/ Guadiana et nous avons joué Guadiana / Atlantic mais on nous a dit qu’il y avait trop de monde alors que nous avons réservé depuis 1 semaine !!! Ce n’e Pas notre commande!!!
A challenging but beautiful course. Really long and undulating so definitely needed the buggy.
Challenging but enjoyable
Excellent greens. Good value but buggy recommended
Back nine tee boxes were too close to each other. A bit dangerous...
Very nice day of golf. Club house was nice but we did not stay.
Interesting golf course, not to long but very narrow fairways and some blind shots.
exciting golf course, buggy is highly recommended
By far the friendliest and best value golf on the Algarve
Club house very good superb views towards Spain from terrace food is of a high standard course in good condition not a long course narrow fairways club selection important too tip bring plenty of balls
Very nice but difficult course
We were not mad about the course. It was not maintained very well
Wonderful lay out, good fairways and greens. We enjoyed this course
Excellent golf course with stunning views, nice clubhouse and food, warm friendly staff
Diana de Vroege
Nice course, valluwe for money. In the heat of the dat cool towels????
Excellent course - good condition - greens a bit slower that ideal but otherwise all good
Good customer service and half way round we were given an ice cold towel which on a hot day was a real treat. The group behind hit through us on 3 occasions even though were kept right up with the group in front of us - it's a shame some golfers are idiots. Of course this was no reflection on the golf course itself. If you are looking for a medium length course (c.6,300 yards off the back (white) tees), with many challengingly tight drives then this is the course for you.
Joli parcours technique et vallonné, souvent serré pour les départs. Très bon entretien. Staff aux petits soins :-) Bon resto aussi.
Totally in love with this course it's like millionairs paradise
first 9 greens sanded and very slow 2nd nine a bit bare and bumpy but quicker. fairways not a patch on quinta do vale which is across the road
Excellent game of golf in under 4 hours
By far the best value golf course in the Algarve
Very helpful and well informed staff. Grouse and Guadiana courses played well and were in good condition.
Tee time was moved half an hour back because of a competition, which resulted in very slow play, 3 1/2 hours for the first 9 holes, played the back 9 in 1 1/2 hours after the competition finished
A very enjoyable experience. Yes the layout a challenge But very playable and an experience not to be missed
Vandaag guadana en atlantic course guadiana is de mooiste van de 3....atlantic...veel afwisseling maar wat compacter dan de andere 2. Castro marim zeker een prachtige accommodatie prettige atmosfeer. Hole 19 zeer relaxt
Erg mooie baan...perfect gebruik gemaakt van de natuur.. buggy is noodzakelijk. Ook al zijn de fairwas kaal....zeer zeker de moeite waard. Greens prima. Mooie vergezichten van hoge tees. Mooi clubgebouw...heerlijke snacks.
Some parts of the course were in need of attention. There was no starter. Needs some work to improve the complete experience.
Another good game at Castro Marim. Wonderful views towards Spain
Lovely course very hilly, needed the buggy!! Very interesting.
A very relaxing round of golf with wonderful views.
Very difficult coursed but in great condition
Played Castro MARIM on 19 April 2017. Course in reasonable shape but very quirky, lots of slopes on fairways and these cause you to be penalised for good drives. You have to aim left or right to get the ball to finish on the fairway. Greens okay. Not the best course in the area.
Wegen des Wetters verschoben um einen Tag. Personal sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert. Platz gepflegt und trotz des Dauerregens tags zuvor gut bespielbar. Jederzeit wieder.
Mr Tony Field
very good. 3 by 9 hole, each different challenges.
A. van Doorn
Not in good shape but interesting to play.
Quiet nice golf-course, course in moderate conditions with rather slow greens. As not that busy a nice and relaxing round of golf, worth to go there, excellent price/performance ratio.
very good course in good shape, kind staff
nice course and godd services
Reception and Caddie Master staff were 1st class.. Grouse 9 good, although greens not great. Guadiana 9,poor,but greens better. No course Marshall, people in front of us could not play golf and we would have finished 30 minutes earlier. There is a real lack of signage from the N125, even 500 metres from the entrance at a T junction there are 2 signs with golfers on them,1 to the right and 1 to the left! We started at 1.45.
The course was in reasonably good condition, we were disappointed that the bar prices have risen dramatically
Clubhouse good service, course and greens are in good condition
Attractive and challenging hilly course without boring holes. Fairway ok..greens need a bit more time. Overall very recommendable for players hcp - 20 or better.
Reception was fine - there was no starter. Course in good condition and the layout was interesting.
Excellent. Staff friendly and course in good condition
Very friendly people, the golfcourse is in a good condition
norbert van der Plas
Nice course although you need a caddie book because the lay-out is complex.
Excellent course, facilities & staff. Could not be faulted
Enjoyable round, buggy was appreciated as it's hilly. Got to play Atlantic course for the first time, which was a plus.
Sadly the greens were not in a good condition and this significantly impacted on our enjoyment. The rest of the course was fine and up to expectations
Frits van Duijn
So in Oktober when its wet in Holland we like to play so 2 a 3 times per week by Castro Marim. Whe like to be with Tee Times for so 7 years and when we know the time and every year we know to find us and they regalade it for us. Castro Marim and Tee Times are close friends for us. Fam F van Duijn Pijnacker The Netherlands.
Challenging course, golf cart a necessity
Fantastic course, a bit rough in places with patchwork greens but a real experience. Shame our game did not match the quality of the course.
Most of the tees and greens were poor. The bartender in the evening was lazy.
We truly enjoyed playing this course. Excellent facilities and the staff outstanding. Will definitely play it again.
Mr Stephen Macguffie
The course was in good condition and far less crowded than those courses on the Western area of the Algarve. Always good value for money
This was my first time playing this course. Found it very challenging Condition could have been better especially around the greens. The buggy we had was definitely dangerous as the brakes were faulty Good group played and all mixed well.
Not in great condition. Several holes made to fit the terrain resulting in gimmicky and poor golf holes.
Malcolm Stuart Russell
Whereas the overall experience at Castro Marim was good, excellent views, club house etc. The condition of the course was not as good as some we played, the course being in need of some attention in places.
Castro Marim GC is a hidden gem.Please do not tell anyone!!
greens showing signs of a long hot summer - only to be expected. Excellent value for money!
Very friendly , helpful ( as it appeared we had missed our tee time slot ) -got us on the course as soon as possible
Atlantico 9 holes not in good condition
The green had been treated and were in a poor condition covered in sand
nice touch of handing out cool/wet hand towels out on the course
Tough course, no room for error, but thoroughly enjoyable and a great golfing experience
John O Connor
Very nice except first day we played there it was busy and we had to wait for 1.5 hours for buggy (we're lazy)
Sixteen players enjoyed the Guadiana and Atlantico courses on a lovely April day, course in good condition.
Castro Marim is a kind of hidden gem. It is challenging, usually in good condtion. I have experienced better greens there. The view and setting, is absolutely acceptable and green fee is at the right level.
Our favourite golf course in ther Eastern Algarve, so we are biassed. This time we stayed in superb accommodation and everything first class
Castro marim. All three 9 holes well kept, Enjoyed playing them, Forgot my mosquito spray, Big mistake.
Holes were very similar, enjoyed the company of the other pair partnered with
Greens a bit rough!
also grat views to the guadiana bridge and excellent course
The brakes on the buggies was very poor, it was very difficult to stop them going downhill. They were in a dangerous condition.
great course with some lovely views. Only downside was the buggy ran out and we had to walk the last for holes! and they only paid us back half.
William Edward Green
As good as usual,excellent continental breakfast.
again very friendly course in good condition.
thoroughly enjoyed as usual although quite alot of bare patches on fairways
a very nice course that is a challenge espicially the first 9 holes(the Grouse).the greens were good although bunkers could have been better. Had a very nice meal in clubhouse which was excellent value for money. 7.5/10
Very friendly , nice touch of cold towels brought round to us mid-round on a very hot afternoon. Stunning course
Likewise to Benamor
Castro Marim golf and food in club house is my favourite in the Algarve We also played Quinta do Val. they are desperate for bus
excellent course in great condition. cant believe you can play this quality of course for so little money. bit of a drive from albufeira, but well worth the extra mileage. our friend who lives just over the border in Spain pops across the river to play this course at least twice a month, we can see why. will play again.
Lovelly course worth the trip out. Nice and quiet but on course service was great and some lovely holes.
Excellent service from the staff at Castro marim. Long course and a fair challenge.
Excellent condition few other players around
Great course in good condition and thankfully very quiet, would definitely play it again.
I hadn't played Castro Marim for a number of years, the quality of the golf course has certainly improved over the period.
Excellent service as usual!
Beautiful and woderfully quirky. Love it
Found Castro Marim to be a good course, but killed us walking, as there were no buggies available. We're told buggies had to be pre booked. (We didn't know this beforehand.) Buggies are needed on this course as there are a lot of hills.
nice course but would recommend buggy which i'd pre booked for my group.
*Undulated - Very hills and valleys, but quite short in length
*Dogleg - Majority of Par 4's and 5's
*Tree Lined - Trees come into play mainly on the original 18 holes Guadiana & Atlantic
*Exposed - The new 9 ''Grouse '' is affected more by windy conditions
*Buggy Recommended - Essential hard to walk
*Water hazards - Very few, but all can be seen when approaching
*Parkland - Parkland Course
*Signature Hole - 9th on Atlantic course a spectacular par 5
*Comments - Course Rating and Slope Rating depending on combination of holes
