Espiche Golf Course

Espiche golf course is located within a nature reserve and just five minutes from Lagos, Espiche Clubhouse & Golf is an eco-resort which has been perfectly integrated into the surrounding natural environment and offers a unique and authentic experience in the western Algarve.
Preservation, conservation and innovation of resource management are at the heart of Espiche Golf & Clubhouse. The 18 hole, par 72 golf course was designed to integrate effortlessly into the surrounding Algarve countryside and the indigenous flora and fauna of the area have been preserved, in keeping with the company ethos of nature preservation and conservation. This commitment to maintaining natural resources is one that we believe will allow Espiche Clubhouse & Golf to continuously contribute to a sustainable future.
The Espiche Golf Clubhouse, which is also home to the Gecko restaurant, has been awarded internationally for its architecture, design and environmental efficiency, in reference to both the choice of materials used for the building and in its resource management. The exceptional location of the Clubhouse, situated on top of a hill overlooking the resort, offers breathtaking views across the golf course and the nature reserve. The views, coupled with the exceptional quality of the food available, makes the Clubhouse a reference for both lovers of golf and those who value the tranquility and beauty of nature itself.

Espiche Golf Course - latest comments and reviews

Carl Olsson 2022-05-13
The fairways were in poor condition and the bunkers weren’t great but otherwise ok. No sat-nav in the buggies so no distance information available
Tee Times reply: Distance marks on the fairways 100/150 meters to the green

Kevin Mathews 2022-05-10
we loved this course although on a windy day. In great condition with lovely views.

William Robertson 2022-05-03
Always a pleasant welcome from reception and starter and a lovely peaceful course. Take plenty of balls however as the rough is wildlife not human friendly

William Robertson 2022-04-29
Very friendly staff and a very enjoyable days golf.

Dirk Groen 2022-04-11
Beautiful course with magnificent views at a reasonable price. It was nice to play a 2 ball in the afternoon. No waiting times at the tees and enough time to play your own game.

Wolfgang Haller 2022-04-04
Friendly staff on the reception, course is not in good shape (too dry), especially the greens compared to other courses in this area. However in nice scenic landscape.

COISNE 2022-03-29
Espiche is Nice!

Heinz-Gerd Schumacher 2022-03-28
Very dry fairways

Thomas Kostrewa 2022-03-25
nice course, not long but partly heavy greens

Kari Kauppinen 2022-03-18
This course is tricky. If you hit outside from fairways, you easily lose golf balls as there are thorn bushes. All fairways which have these thorn bushes should have lateral water hazards in order to speed play. Some blind holes. In restaurant you couldn't get any food before 9:00 am. The staff was very friendly.

Brian Morgans 2022-03-17
Overall the golf course was very enjoyable. Nice layout with a variety of holes. Rolling landscape and a lot of fun to play. Unfortunately the greens were not in very good shape at the moment. Even with the current green situation it did not take away from our enjoyment. The starter was very nice with a great personality. The club house was beautiful and tied in with all the beautiful stone work on the course. We would return and my rating would be higher if the greens were in better shape.

Matthias Rück 2022-03-03
It´s a hilly course with tight and narrow fairways. The course is in top condition, and fun to play! Maybe not really enjoyable for high-handicappers.

rob schepp 2022-02-26
Great golfcourse. Friendly reception.

Norma Askew 2022-01-31
Lovely day on espiche

Catherine Wilson 2022-01-15
Wonderful clubhouse with exceptional views. Tricky course. Bring plenty of balls.

Marion Brosens 2022-01-11
Beautiful surroundings and always in good shape.

Odette Isler 2022-01-04
Love it. Friendly reception and restaurant service. Always nice to play Espiche

Kinkel Dagmar 2021-12-19
Good strokes and bad positions because of the many inclines

Norbert van der Plas 2021-12-11
Firm fairways and speedy greens.

Geoff Davison 2021-12-07
Enyoyed playing at Espiche after a 2/3 year gap. Course was in good condition and the greens putted well despite their brownish colour. As always there is only one way to play Espiche and that is hitting the ball straight! Any deviation and there is a very good chance of a lost ball especially with the fast running fairways. In this respect there seems to be inconsistency in what is deemed red penalty areas and other areas, equally penalising which have no designation. A few marker posts would also help visitors on blind holes.

Martin Georg Hilke 2021-12-04
We played the course in December 2019, before covid. One of the best courses in the south. Remind the fast fairways!…

Drew Newman 2021-12-02
Good facility with excellent staff. The course is in good condition but there is significant wild boar damage just off a few of the fairways.

Stephen Copley 2021-11-29
well manicured course with challenging holes. Too challenging for me on this occasion !!!! Great clubhouse with good food. Would highly recommend to any straight hitter

Bert Snoek 2021-11-13
Course in excellent condition : fairways, green and bunker. Friendly staff and all well organized.

Matthew Watson 2021-11-10

Anette Sander 2021-11-08
Very nice course and fun flight partners

Alastair Carmichael 2021-10-29
We’ve played Espiche before and have always enjoyed it. Yesterday, however the course was very busy and the round was just too slow

Thomas Ewald 2021-10-23
The greens are greate, fast and in perfect conditions. The fairways are to dry and you have a lot of blind shots. So often you‘ll find your ball never again - rolls, rolls and gone…… In front of us a turnement was played, so we need nearly 5 Hours to go…… Sorry, that information would have been important, to change the Teetime.

Maurice Mulville 2021-10-22
Pro Shop very busy, course is very nice but too punishing. Meaning good shots hit the middle of the fairway , get the wrong bounce and you end up in a hassard of bush and suffer penalty shots and lost balls ! This slows down play dramatically.

E. Korma 2021-10-20
The course is well layed out, with a few blind shots. Well kept fairways and greens (not the fastest around). It is very busy in this period of year so full flights (4-balls) and it took us 5 hours. Played the course a few days earlier in a 3-ball, which took us 4:30hrs. When you tee off at 12:20 you'll arrive at the clubhouse around 17:15 and you might want to eat something after your first drink. Guess what? Kitchen closed, Sir... This is R I D I C U L O U S!!! In high season I expect that I can eat something in a clubhouse. Anyway the weather was fantastic and the golf was very enjoyable.

Nick Medlam 2021-10-16
Excellent course condition. Experience marred by exceptionally slow play from 10th hole onwards. First 9 holes in 2 Hrs 5 Mins. Holes 10-18 in 3 Hrs 10 Mins. Total Round 5 Hrs 15 Mins. Espiche Golf Club needs to deploy course marshal to expedite slow play.

Malc Kendall 2021-10-13
Very enjoyable day tough course especially if you stray off straight

Malachy Coleman 2021-10-12
Course was difficult with hidden traps and unsuitable for average holiday golfer. Our 4 ball lost in excess of 10 golf balls. Internal out of bounds were deemed to be unfair. It was our first time playing course and these obstacles were not evident from tee. Please accept this as constructive comment.

David Thomas 2021-10-10
Fantastic coarse.

Westley Macey 2021-10-05
Best conditioned course of our 4 rounds over the week lovely clubhouse testing course would definitely like to play again

Norbert van der Plas 2021-09-29
Perfect round with perfect greens. They were very fast. Stimp?? We will come back!

Norbert van der Plas 2021-09-24
Wonderfull round. Not easy to play, but very beautifull. Greens in good condition, but perhaps they could need a haircut.

Richard Rosendahl 2021-09-17
as usual, i ve lost too many balls..but came back on the back 9 with a great score

Dorte Lægteskov 2021-09-11
Wondefull course. We had a very good experience. Wonderfull cluhouse.

Andrea Grote 2021-09-10
Grüns in einem sehr guten Zustand. Auch die Fairways sind bis auf wenige braune Stellen sehr gut. Platz ist sehr schön angelegt und macht viel Spaß. Buggy ist für weniger Sportliche zu empfehlen, da es schon viel hoch und runter geht und die Wege zwischen den Bahnen teilweise recht lang sind. Sehr schönes, interessantes Clubhaus, von dem aus man einen schönen Blick über den Platz hat.

Andy Davies 2021-09-10
Excellent golf course but a little off the beaten track. Allow yourself extra time to get there - we got lost and only arrived on the last minute. First 2 holes were a write off due to the rush. After that it was superb. Nice layout with top class greens. We found ourselves behind some very slow players who didn’t wave us through so it was a 5 hour round. Nice food and beverage choices at good prices. Overall well worth a visit.

Andrew 2021-09-05
Great course, in excellent condition. Tough track, with a premium on hitting the ball straight of the tees and fingers crossed for a good bounce. Miss the fairway and you are looking at a penalty

Brian Trenbirth 2021-09-05
Tricky course in great condition. Clubhouse facilities the best.

Hilário Dionísio Peixeiro 2021-08-19
Como esperado, excelente nivel de profissionalismo, no acolhimento, resolução de pequena situação, no restaurante e no campo.

Véronique Gantoy 2021-06-19
Accueil club house peu aimable voire désagréable. Restaurant bon. Beau parcours. Très difficile si vent.

Paul Gray 2021-01-25
A fantastic course , unique in the Algarve

Siegfried Wagner 2020-03-16
Although the unsual circumstances of Corona Pandemia the stuff at the reception was very friendly and helpful. Appreciate that.

Mr. Kim Breivik 2020-01-14
Great facilities and lovely natural location without the ‘fish bowl’ effect.

RITOUET 2019-12-03
Really good and interresting. Perfect conditions and warm welcoming.

Henk Van Derlit 2019-10-27
It was a pleasure to play at Espiche today. The course is in fine condition, the people. are and as an extra present the expected rain did not arrive when we put on the course. Certainly we will play Espiche again, during the rest of our stay in the Algarve.

Cliff Morgan 2019-10-01
Very challenging course, definitely better suited to low handicappers, but worth playing.

Peter Streets 2019-09-30
Lovely golf course

Andrew Ford 2019-09-19
As we had to miss our original tee time due to illness, we expected to lose our round of golf. We were contacted via yourselves from Espiche to offer us to rebook without any extra cost. This was an unexpected and brilliant surprise.. When we played our round , the course was in a great condition considering the lack of rainfall and all the staff were very helpful. I will certainly play here again.

david brooks 2019-09-10
Beautiful course. Fantastic condition. Hard to play in the wind. But very very enjoyable. Would recommend 100%

Gareth Toms 2019-06-12
Very good course, excellent greens

Adam Roche 2019-06-12
Lovely people, great club house, course is hard !

Jason Pierce 2019-05-11
Bring lots of balls! Course was in good condition, although greens were a little sandy in places but generally rolled well. Course is very tight in places and if you are wide don’t even bother looking for your ball. Course is high up in the hills so exposed and very windy

Kim Bennett 2019-05-11
Absolutely superb golf course. Challenging in places but a fair test. It was also in excellent condition. The Club house is amazing and we were able to get a very pleasant breakfast. It was a little less busy than the Pestana courses courses we are playing for the rest of the week, which was good. Will return and would highly recommend.

Dr. Markus Feidicker 2019-04-14
nice golf course, but need a lot of balls since almost every ball not on fairway is lost due to bushes. Fairways very hard, so balls jumping all over the place. Nice clubhouse. Friendly personnel.

Vortmann 2019-04-07
Top and challenging Course, unfriendly employess at the clubhouse, practice areas to far away -, Price For Token at the driving area unacceptable

Bill Young 2019-01-04
Espiche is a fantastic golf course in great condition for January. Staff are friendly and make visitors very welcome.

Ian Brotherston 2018-12-04
A hidden gem. A thinking golfers course. It is wider than it looks but as it was so firm and there was little to no rough shots that were off line did find toruble. The greens are large, sloping and fast so do not get the wrong side of the hole. The course is in a relatively remote spot and in a beautiful spot. At the time of year we played (late November) it was also outstanding value for money.

Kevin Ephgrave 2018-10-26
Course played well. Always a test to remember which side of the fairway to hit given some of the undulations in play. Greens were good. Clubhouse and food/service still great. Overall the group enjoyed the day.

Alan Robinson 2018-09-09
Excellent course it's a challenge. Probably the best greens I've played all year. You have got to be straight. Club house is beautiful and food excellent.

Paul Loverseed 2018-07-08
Toughest course we played however very enjoyable with some stunning holes.

Bernd Bachmann 2017-04-16
Espiche has developed in recent years from an insider tip to a beautifully situated and well maintained golf course with a beautiful clubhouse. Very good price and performance ratio.

terry cotton 2017-04-07
Beautiful location and a lovely golf course in a wild and natural setting. Spectacular display of wild flowers. Very difficult due to the dense scrub lining all the fairways. Greens, however, were very poor compared to other venues played that week.

Smit 2017-03-06
Golf course looks very nice. Unfortunately a very dry and hard ground. The drives will go very far and the will end up in the rough or worse almost every tee shot. Also the good ones. :) You are better of keeping the distance of your tee shot under the 200 meters. When you miss the fairway you will loose your ball. Next to the holes is very harsh terrain. I might return to this course due to the challange and the friendly people and good service.

Tim Triglone 2020-03-23
Lovely layout but very unfair at times.

Juha Tonttila 2020-03-12
Too much waiting on the tee boxes

Graham Lucas 2020-03-06
Enjoyed this course, interesting hole variety and countryside views, but lost many balls as there is not much rough beside fairways and scrub is dense

Henk Van Derlit 2020-02-28
We had an enjoyable round of golf today at Espiche. The course is challanging, not always fair, but the greens are in good shape

Brian Trenbirth 2020-02-13
The course was in good condition but not quite as good as the last time we played in September. Although the greens did not look good they putted well and were fast. As usual the clubhouse facilities and food were excellent.

David McKee 2020-02-09
A tough course that makes you think about your next shot. The clubhouse was nice, and the views were superb!

guy HILAIRE 2020-02-07
Parcours joué le 06/02/20, Le parcours est dans un très bon état, les fairways sont propres et roulants. Les greens sont complexes par leurs taille, leurs différents de niveaux, L’entretien et la qualité "sable" des bunkers est exceptionnel. Ce parcours est vallonné, Piégeur ou la moindre erreur se paye cash. Le personnel, "accueil, club housse, starter, Marshall" est excellent , souriant et professionnel. Enfin un parcours qui n'est pas pollué par l’immobilier environnante. Le TOP.

David Askew 2020-02-03
Great day ... greens were brilliant condition

Hans Bytomski 2020-01-24
Good Golfcourse

Roland Nilsson 2020-01-22
Great facilities and good services

Sunny Weather and one of the best places to play Golf at Algarve.

Sigrid Oeztoprak 2019-12-07
Very nice to Play on Espiche Golf course.

Très beau golf bien entretenu. Nous y retournons dans quelques jours.

Smits 2019-11-19
Very nice course with fast & difficult greens

Max de Groot 2019-11-06
Lovely natural golf course. Club house with stunning panorama. Personnel seemed not quite interested in serving drinks.

Thijs Beetstra 2019-11-04
Great golf course.

David Standing 2019-10-25
Not played Espiche for 10 year , transformation in 10 years has produced a wonderful club house and a very good golf course. Will go back.

Marjolaine Knight 2019-10-15
It was to far for the quality of this golf! To much blind shot! We won’t repeat the experience over there! But they have a very nice Club House with a nice view!

Liam Kearney 2019-10-15
Course was in good order and all enjoyed it

Ted Kennedy 2019-10-10
This course was by far the best and most challenging we played in Portugal it was our 5th and last course. Palmares ran it close but this was more enjoyable. Everything was in pristine condition from tee to green. Staff were courteous and a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely play here again.

Jan Vermeesch 2019-10-10
Wonderful challenging course with the best clubhouse around.

Philip A Lander 2019-10-07
Very good course looked after us great.

Cliff Mottershead 2019-09-18
Great golf course, pristine greens, perfect fairways and a great thinking golfers course. Lovely club house to finish with welcoming staff.

Jim Hardman 2019-09-16
Lovely course but a bit to tight

Mark Wincer 2019-09-15
Friendly and great clubhouse facilities

Odette Silvério 2019-09-13
It’s always nice to play Espiche....Interesting course with greens in a superb condition. Thank you Pauline for the warm welcome and congratulations for managing such a great team.

Richard Gray 2019-09-12
A tight course with some difficult undulations and slopes.

Chris Rudling 2019-09-10
Course in good condition. Some fairway bunkers GUR. Pleasant staff on reception and in the restaurant. 8/10

Jason wilks 2019-09-09
Lovely course in great condition. Greens fantastic and very consistent for all 18 holes. Defo play again

Guy Sambrook 2019-09-07
Excellent course and club house.

David Levitus 2019-08-11
Very enjoyable

Thierry Courbois 2019-07-31
Disapointed that for such warm country no water is provided at the start and/or on the course. Course was well maintained

Robin Fledderus 2019-06-24
The best golfcourse we played in Algarve

BORRACELLI Michel 2019-06-18

david salvesen 2019-06-16
Choose was in poor condition. Round was very slow with no sign of a marshall to spped things up. Overall very disappointed.

Breuer 2019-06-11
Friedly staff, relaxed setting; driving range a bit off-track; nice golf course, reasonably demanding but a bit on the very dry side; beautiful club house, superb terrace, nicest fish&chips - a must-try - no joke!

James Ridgway 2019-05-27
Wonderful course, wonderful club house.

Robert Wood 2019-05-24
A tough, beautiful course, worth the effort to drive 10k inland. I am a good 8 handicapper and in the wind (which I guess is most days given it is close to a wind farm), it is a real test of accuracy. My wife loved it too

Pascal Plichta 2019-05-10
Tres bon acceuil. Terrain vallonné. Possible de le faire sans buggy. Fairways pas très faut être precis.

Chris Rudling 2019-05-07
Great course, played three rounds in good condition, have to be straight off the tee as you could lose balls, will definitely be back to play it again. Good club house, excellent service and food.

David Weeks 2019-05-03
Excellent course in very good condition. Staff very friendly and couldn't fault the service.

McDonald 2019-05-03
Friendly staff, but course wasn’t cared for the best. Needed some maintenance work

Michael Mullins 2019-04-23
Very difficult

Caren Lottermann 2019-04-20
Perfect Service and quick responses.

Richard Oakley 2019-04-09
A tough challenge but fair. Our group of 7 found more golf balls than we lost!

Carmel Murphy 2019-04-01
Enjoyed playing there & staff were very friendly.

Charles Coe 2019-04-01
Very unfair golf course. Semi rough would help.

dirk groeneweg 2019-03-25
too windy and a great loss of balls

WINKELMANN Brigitte 2019-02-26
The course was very dry and for this reason difficult to play (Balls bounced in every direction). Interessting layout; but the holes were obviously several days on the same place. Good value for 148 Euro incl. Buggy.

Cathy Cirko 2019-02-16
It was great.

Roland Nilsson 2019-01-30
Nice and friendly good service

Martin Georg Hilke 2018-12-10
Always a pretty good place to play ambitious golf...Fast fairways and putting greens. Top clubhouse. One of the best courses at algarve...

Daphne Ledger 2018-11-21
Super course would certainly play it ahain

James Bruce 2018-11-10
Great service from the agency. Golf course in excellent condition. Greens very fast especially on downhill putts. Great golf challenge.

Roger Moyse 2018-10-21
Good course very good food for lunch.

Chris Secular 2018-10-17
Great course and clubhouse

Neville Reilly 2018-10-16
Excellent course condition

celeste o'regan 2018-10-08
Very tight course. Would need to be very accurate off tee. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. Really enjoyable round of golf.

Mark Barnish 2018-10-08
Tough wind conditions but course set up fairly and in excellent condition overal excellent course and facilities

mr m rajowski 2018-10-03
great golf course will play again

Andrew Wilson 2018-10-02
We liked Espiche very much although a buggy is essential as are a good supply of balls!

Graeme 2018-08-24
Beautiful course, friendly and helpful staff

Hoang Hang 2018-07-27
Very good course, technically very interesting, but to much windy today ....

Matthias Anklam 2018-07-14
Wie immer, tolle Qualität mit einem super Layout.

Per Svensson 2018-07-14
Nice course a bit tight, needs precision from tee. Greens where really slow but will be better they said.

Phil Sharpe 2018-07-01
Always a tough golf course as it’s so narrow but one that is in absolutely great condition. An excellent clubhouse with stunning views and very friendly and helpful staff. Would love it if the clubhouse restaurant brought back their old breakfast menu, the current one is far more limited for those that want to eat there before teeing off in the morning.

arseniy tarasov 2018-06-28
Really interesting and challenging course, very windy, in good condition. And not crowded.

Stephen Curley 2018-06-28
Fantastic clubhouse, staff & food. However the course, whilst in great condition, is unfair. The course needs some redesign to ensure that good shots are not punished

David Elcock 2018-06-24
Beautiful setting but in a strong wind the tightness of the course was demoralising

Gareth Toms 2018-06-18
Very nice golf course, a tough challenge and take a good number of golf balls

gerard kelly 2018-06-10
This is not a long course but has a high degree of difficulty. Beautifully maintained without the use of any fertiliser. In a conservation area so chemical use prohibited. This means fairways do not have the rich green of course which use fertilisers and weed control agents. I had read about the difficult rating of the course in advance so as my party of 7 are all mid teen handicaps we played scramble format for our 3 rounds. Really enjoyable. However I know it would have been dry challenging to play single stroke format. Beautiful clubhouse and brilliant staff.

kuhl 2018-06-02
Top !!

Becker, Frank 2018-05-21
Nice surrounding, but very difficult two play, especially with wind. There are holes without a landing zone

LAFITTE 2018-05-07
Parcours magnifique et très bon accueil! Un parcours avec de nombreux trous à l'aveugle donc il faut un petit stock de balles. Très belle expérience ????

David Burton 2018-05-03
I like the course, quite tight in places but a good challenge and vegetation wild plants in colour in Spring made the course very attractive scenically. Good, modern clubhouse centrally located on high point so there are good views of the course.

Darren Gatward 2018-05-01
Course is too severe / unfair in windy conditions, with firm sloping fairways the ball easily rolled into bushes that frame every hole with very narrow fairways on most holes. I lost 2 balls after hitting them down the middle of the fairway, while the 2 guys I played with who were 20+ handicappers must have lost more than 30 balls between them in one round. I won’t be be returning to this course again.

Stuart Armstrong 2018-04-27
The clubhouse and facilities are first class. Unfortunately the course is too hilly and off the fairway is dense bush making it almost impossible to find balls. We suffered from several lost balls as people around us did making our round 5 hours 30 minutes which is excessive for us. We will Unfortunately not choose this course again.

colin armitage 2018-04-16
Difficult golf course with only limited room for error. Not long but demands accuracy and even good shots can finish in unexpected places. It needs some control rough grass areas on the edge of fairways to limit the number of decent shots going into the rubbish - ball lost, expensive round. However it is set in a lovely spot in the countryside and a has pleasant clubhouse to return to. Staff polite as can be. Would definitely play again.

Tania Segers 2018-04-01
Very good. No comments. Excellent facilities, friendly staff, very nice clubhouse.

Markus Ruebenkamp 2018-03-27
Perfect Service when we booked our tee times!

Klaus Krausen 2018-03-20
Nice course in rural area. Almost no housing estates in surroundings. Friendly personal. Modern club facilities. The course requires precise centered long play. Otherwise shrubs and bushes close along the fairways are fast using up one's ball reserves.

H. Seifert 2018-03-14
All holes without any rough, balls run while hitting a fairway simply in the scrub, under this conditions combined with wind unfair course with little fun, friendly and helpfully staff and very good service in the club restaurant

Martin West 2018-03-12
Great experience but we gound it tough however we manage the course much better the 2 nd time around

Martin West 2018-03-12
Great customer service great course but tough to score well would definitely play this course again

Nick Fry 2018-03-08
Slow pace of play Grass too tightly cut Course not in great condition

Petrusch 2018-03-06
The fairway was Brown and extremely fast. No ball stayed, precisely diven shots left the Palace. The roughs wäre dense. You need many balls.

Thomas Wicker 2018-03-05
A bit too far away from Vilamoura , but nice course, some blind holes, if you are not straight the ball is gone, greens were in bad conditions, better to use carts

Barry Summerfield 2018-02-01
Reception was prompt and efficient. The starter was very helpful. The course is quite tough and it is very easy to lose balls if you stray off the fairway.. The course was in good condition.

tony Laframboise 2018-01-29
The service and staff were excellent. The course was dry and impossible to play. Not a course I would recommend

Roy Denton 2018-01-23
Excellent service from teetimes. Lose to many balls!

Roberta alder 2018-01-20
Friendly staff. Beautiful views from every hole. I found the course difficult but my husband loved the challenge. It’s not an easy walk but doable. The greens ran fast and were a challenge. Would play again.

Roy Denton 2018-01-15
Teetimes response time excellent, and no problem at Espiche did not even need copy of voucher.
Tee Times reply: We are so popular ! Thank you Roy

Martin Georg Hilke 2017-12-16

William Young 2017-11-27
Excellent course and excellent staff. We had a great time

David James 2017-11-20
Really enjoyed our game. Great course and the staff were all very helpful and polite. We will return.

Bep Van Der Pas 2017-11-16
At Espiche the course wins, not the players, they stand no chance.

Markus Ruebenkamp 2017-11-12
Great Course, brillant Greens!

Christopher Hunt 2017-11-11
For the money I think this is the best course on the Western Algarve. A real challenge with plenty of different holes. The staff are really friendly - not like some of the "corporate" courses. Great day out.

Frank Dickhaus 2017-11-10
Nice course, well kept greens, but speed of play could be better

Germ Kemper 2017-11-09
Espische is also a very nice course. No buggy nessasary here.

Rick Gaetz 2017-11-06
The course and service was great. Enjoyed our round of golf.

Odette 2017-11-02
Course in very good condition in particular the greens

Van der Lit 2017-11-01
The course is in very good condition, especially considering the very dry monthes. The greens are not very fast, but honest. All in all a very pleasant day at Espiche. Kind regards. Henk van der Lit

Friendly service and outstanding course condition. Will come back.

Tony Walsh 2017-10-23
Excellent course with really friendly staff. No problem ordering food which was delivered to us on the course.

Graham Holden 2017-10-23
Excellent golf course, much improved in last few years, brilliant new club house and facilities

Michael Hardman 2017-10-21
Course and greens in great condition. Not a course we would wish to play again as the fairways are too narrow with thick bushes catching anything but the straightest shots. In my view the fairways need widening and bushes removing. Until this is done and bushes removed from behind greens will not be a course for holiday golf or higher handicaps. Clubhouse and views great

Mark Barnish 2017-10-20
Had overbooked the golf course on the day (including a coach party of approx 40) so very slow, obtaining buggies we had booked was chaotic and staff seemed a bit overwhelmed

Jaap Schaap 2017-10-16
Excellent, again!!

Sean Drona 2017-10-16
First class course and Clubhouse.

Tony Walsh 2017-10-16
Excellent golf course. Really friendly staff and great service. Course in great condition with some great driving holes. Organised by tee who were excellent especially Susana who looked after us so well.

R A Evans 2017-10-16
Lovely welcome starter put us out on the tenth which gave us a smooth run through a busy field. Brilliant

Wendel-Jones 2017-10-14
Excellent service, polite, courteous and helpful, complete contrast to our experience yesterday at Alto. Course in excellent condition.

Mike Sanderson 2017-10-06
Enjoyable if you keep to the fairways. Into thick scrubland and bushes if you are not straight of the tee.

Peter Streets 2017-10-05
Good course great condition our pick of the five.

Robin Vidler 2017-08-30
Hidden gem. Worth a trip out.

David Levitus 2017-08-15
Challenging course rewarded by our lovely lunch in a beautiful setting

David Levitus 2017-07-19
Beautiful and well laid out course with a fantastic clubhouse.

Alan Cooper 2017-07-14

Ray Lloyd 2017-07-09
A tough course if you are off the fairway, even tougher when the wind is blowing. Great clubhouse and views.

Conor Brennan 2017-06-02
Good course and clubhouse.

Robert Cannon 2017-05-30
great value, tricky course

mark lane 2017-05-17
a quite difficult course as it is tight and unforgiving , it was windy when we played which made it even more difficult , if anyone is thinking of playing , use an iron of the tee for some holes or you will lose your ball.the course was in good condition and the green were fast .Buggies were available and they had a refreshment buggy .

Mike 2017-05-17
Fantastic service and stunning course

David Hizzett 2017-05-16
Nice new course, quite tough in places, fantastic clubhouse with fabulous views, very friendly and helpful staff.

Simon Bussell 2017-05-14
The clubhouse and facilities are outstanding but the course is hard. If you can play straight and like target or percentage golf then this course is for you!

Gordon 2017-05-12
Very tight course and don't think we will be going back as too punishing

Bill Robertson 2017-05-11
Difficult course but lovely friendly staff on and off course.

Jaap Slootweg 2017-05-05
With 6 Beaufort... difficult! ;)

Dietmar Bloch von Blottnitz 2017-04-24
Insgesamt in Ordnung. Freundlicher Service. Gepflegte Golfanlage.

Phil Sharpe 2017-04-20
Really friendly staff, great choice of breakfast and lunch times menus and course in excellent condition. Becoming one of our favourite experiences from a golf course perspective and already have booked it twice more for trips later this year.

Jeff Bull 2017-04-18
The best clubhouse in the Algarve. The greens were dreadful. The group of us actually thought the wrong grass had been planted with flower heads on some greens. Too many blind holes which made it extremely difficult for people who have never played it before. It was voted the worst of our four courses.

Chris Deakin 2017-03-06
Great golf course/club house with fantastic service although the course desperately needs some water or secondary rough so you don't spend all your time looking for your tee shots that have run through the fairway. Overall experience very good.

Eduard Reinhart 2017-03-05
Netter und preisgünstiger Platz

Päivi Melkko 2017-02-25
Wonderful, peaceful

richard davies 2016-12-23
Difficult tight course, be prepared to loose a number of golf balls. Fantastic clubhouse with very friendly staff.

Bienz Peter 2016-11-19
very difficult , too many trees, lost to many balls

Bill Robertson 2016-10-20
Beautiful difficult course....stunning clubhouse

Lee bickerton 2016-10-16
Everything about the course and staff was brilliant would go back everytime

Kelvin Lawton 2016-10-09
Most wonderful setting and well maintained. But - very unforgiving for the high handicapper.

andrew shipp 2016-09-27
very helpful staff. course in very good condition,

Andy Bryant 2016-09-26
Tough course, again friendly people and thanks to the barman who stayed on a bit late so we could have drinks after our later tee-off time

Alexander Murphy 2016-09-20
Great views and clubhouse. Very difficult course, tight with nothing between fairway and bushes. Lost far more balls than usual! Not sure we would rush to play it again.

Ann Walker 2016-09-19
A beautiful course that is well worth finding

ian jetten 2016-07-05
Very good course though the rough is impossible

Jeremy Mounsey 2016-06-29
Very good & friendly

Geoff Dobinson 2016-05-27
Easy to find, excellent facilities. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly as were the starter and buggy operators. The drinks cart man was terrific and made sure he met up with us every 3/4 holes. The course itself is very well kept and the greens well maintained.

Malcolm MacDonald 2016-05-10
Great for a quiet and fast round as it was very quiet. A true test for all levels.

neil meffin 2016-05-07
Very disappointed as only able to offer us baguettes when we fished our round of golf

Peter Watson 2016-05-05
Difficult course to play and enjoy because of the fast fairways, slopes, lack of first cut of rough and proximity of the unplayable areas. May be more enjoyable the second time round and as the course matures. Best part of the day was the meal in the clubhouse after the golf.

Mark Crichtron 2016-03-23
The whole experience - from booking through to the transfers and golf - went very smoothly. The TeeTimes team were very helpful and I would certainly recommend their service.

Michael Cavill 2016-03-04
Thanks ,5 star service. Only problem could not pay online

Robert Lentell 2016-02-14
Not very good would not recommend narrow fairways can be coped with but vegetation right up edge which balls run into and cannot be found very frustrating.

Timo Taipalus 2016-01-21

Torben iversholt 2015-12-12
Terrible golf course. All players lost at least 10 balls, due to bad design. Will never play this course again

Bill Robertson 2015-11-16
Lovely course...great staff. Deadly rough so need to hit straight every shot.

Jean Harings 2015-11-08
Nice course layout, nice holes, but no room besides the fairway. it is either fairway or a lost ball will not play that course again

Robert Hopcroft 2015-10-19
Espiche which we found not only difficult but unfair - not an enjoyable experience. And would be very reluctant to play the course again regardless of price.

Carlos Ferreira 2012-04-25
Espiche Golf is a brand new course just North of Lagos. To get there you have to drive past Lagos and through the village of Espiche. At the moment you will find there is only the course and a kind of check-in point, although a clubhouse is in the plans. The 18 hole par 72 golf course is located on a hill and offers splendid views across Monchique mountains and is surrounded by the Algarve beautiful countryside. The holes have quite an interesting layout but perhaps due to the fact that it is still a very young course, with a limited investment, you go from fairway straight into the rough, which makes the ball search difficult. The course misses a generous 1st and 2nd cuts to prevent that from happening. The course has quite a few blind holes, which is a bit of a disadvantage for those who tend to hit long drives because you simply have no clue of where the ball is going to land. The fact that it's almost always windy also doesn't help. The greens vary a lot in shapes and sizes and are quite slopy, which make them very interesting, however they are also quite irregular because of the choice of grass, which in this particular case, doesn't grow in the winter. The good news is that the dry season is almost here and so there is a chance that this is a temporary situation. This first group of golfers were with the Chez Carlos Golf Society and overall everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not a championship course but it does provide a very pleasant experience, particularly with such a beautiful landscape of wild flowers as your backdrop. As Walter Hagen once said, 'never hurry, never worry, and always remember to smell the flowers along the way'. Carlos Ferreira
