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.

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.
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
we loved this course although on a windy day. In great condition with lovely views.
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
Very friendly staff and a very enjoyable days golf.
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.
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.
Espiche is Nice!
Very dry fairways
nice course, not long but partly heavy greens
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.
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.
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.
Great golfcourse. Friendly reception.
Lovely day on espiche
Wonderful clubhouse with exceptional views. Tricky course. Bring plenty of balls.
Beautiful surroundings and always in good shape.
Love it. Friendly reception and restaurant service. Always nice to play Espiche
Good strokes and bad positions because of the many inclines
Norbert van der Plas
Firm fairways and speedy greens.
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
We played the course in December 2019, before covid. One of the best courses in the south. Remind the fast fairways!…
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.
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
Course in excellent condition : fairways, green and bunker. Friendly staff and all well organized.
Very nice course and fun flight partners
We’ve played Espiche before and have always enjoyed it. Yesterday, however the course was very busy and the round was just too slow
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.
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.
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.
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.
Very enjoyable day tough course especially if you stray off straight
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.
Best conditioned course of our 4 rounds over the week lovely clubhouse testing course would definitely like to play again
Norbert van der Plas
Perfect round with perfect greens. They were very fast. Stimp?? We will come back!
Norbert van der Plas
Wonderfull round. Not easy to play, but very beautifull. Greens in good condition, but perhaps they could need a haircut.
as usual, i ve lost too many balls..but came back on the back 9 with a great score
Wondefull course. We had a very good experience. Wonderfull cluhouse.
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.
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.
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
Tricky course in great condition. Clubhouse facilities the best.
Hilário Dionísio Peixeiro
Como esperado, excelente nivel de profissionalismo, no acolhimento, resolução de pequena situação, no restaurante e no campo.
Accueil club house peu aimable voire désagréable. Restaurant bon. Beau parcours. Très difficile si vent.
A fantastic course , unique in the Algarve
Although the unsual circumstances of Corona Pandemia the stuff at the reception was very friendly and helpful. Appreciate that.
Mr. Kim Breivik
Great facilities and lovely natural location without the ‘fish bowl’ effect.
Really good and interresting. Perfect conditions and warm welcoming.
Henk Van Derlit
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.
Very challenging course, definitely better suited to low handicappers, but worth playing.
Lovely golf course
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.
Beautiful course. Fantastic condition. Hard to play in the wind. But very very enjoyable. Would recommend 100%
Very good course, excellent greens
Lovely people, great club house, course is hard !
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
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
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.
Top and challenging Course, unfriendly employess at the clubhouse, practice areas to far away -, Price For Token at the driving area unacceptable
Espiche is a fantastic golf course in great condition for January. Staff are friendly and make visitors very welcome.
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.
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.
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.
Toughest course we played however very enjoyable with some stunning holes.
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.
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.
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.
Lovely layout but very unfair at times.
Too much waiting on the tee boxes
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
We had an enjoyable round of golf today at Espiche. The course is challanging, not always fair, but the greens are in good shape
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.
A tough course that makes you think about your next shot. The clubhouse was nice, and the views were superb!
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.
Great day ... greens were brilliant condition
Great facilities and good services
Loved it. Fabulous club house and really enjoyed the course albeit it is difficult in the wind.
Martin Georg Hilke
Sunny Weather and one of the best places to play Golf at Algarve.
Very nice to Play on Espiche Golf course.
Très beau golf bien entretenu. Nous y retournons dans quelques jours.
Very nice course with fast & difficult greens
Max de Groot
Lovely natural golf course. Club house with stunning panorama. Personnel seemed not quite interested in serving drinks.
Great golf course.
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.
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!
Course was in good order and all enjoyed it
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.
Wonderful challenging course with the best clubhouse around.
Philip A Lander
Very good course looked after us great.
Great golf course, pristine greens, perfect fairways and a great thinking golfers course. Lovely club house to finish with welcoming staff.
Lovely course but a bit to tight
Friendly and great clubhouse facilities
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.
A tight course with some difficult undulations and slopes.
Course in good condition. Some fairway bunkers GUR. Pleasant staff on reception and in the restaurant. 8/10
Lovely course in great condition. Greens fantastic and very consistent for all 18 holes. Defo play again
Excellent course and club house.
Disapointed that for such warm country no water is provided at the start and/or on the course. Course was well maintained
The best golfcourse we played in Algarve
Choose was in poor condition. Round was very slow with no sign of a marshall to spped things up. Overall very disappointed.
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!
Wonderful course, wonderful club house.
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
Tres bon acceuil. Terrain vallonné. Possible de le faire sans buggy. Fairways pas très larges.il faut être precis.
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.
Excellent course in very good condition. Staff very friendly and couldn't fault the service.
Friendly staff, but course wasn’t cared for the best. Needed some maintenance work
Perfect Service and quick responses.
A tough challenge but fair. Our group of 7 found more golf balls than we lost!
Enjoyed playing there & staff were very friendly.
Very unfair golf course. Semi rough would help.
too windy and a great loss of balls
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.
It was great.
Nice and friendly good service
Martin Georg Hilke
Always a pretty good place to play ambitious golf...Fast fairways and putting greens. Top clubhouse. One of the best courses at algarve...
Super course would certainly play it ahain
Great service from the agency. Golf course in excellent condition. Greens very fast especially on downhill putts. Great golf challenge.
Good course very good food for lunch.
Great course and clubhouse
Excellent course condition
Very tight course. Would need to be very accurate off tee. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. Really enjoyable round of golf.
Tough wind conditions but course set up fairly and in excellent condition overal excellent course and facilities
mr m rajowski
great golf course will play again
We liked Espiche very much although a buggy is essential as are a good supply of balls!
Beautiful course, friendly and helpful staff
Very good course, technically very interesting, but to much windy today ....
Wie immer, tolle Qualität mit einem super Layout.
Nice course a bit tight, needs precision from tee. Greens where really slow but will be better they said.
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.
Really interesting and challenging course, very windy, in good condition. And not crowded.
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
Beautiful setting but in a strong wind the tightness of the course was demoralising
Very nice golf course, a tough challenge and take a good number of golf balls
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.
Nice surrounding, but very difficult two play, especially with wind. There are holes without a landing zone
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 ????
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.
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.
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.
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.
Very good. No comments. Excellent facilities, friendly staff, very nice clubhouse.
Perfect Service when we booked our tee times!
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.
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
Great experience but we gound it tough however we manage the course much better the 2 nd time around
Great customer service great course but tough to score well would definitely play this course again
Slow pace of play Grass too tightly cut Course not in great condition
The fairway was Brown and extremely fast. No ball stayed, precisely diven shots left the Palace. The roughs wäre dense. You need many balls.
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
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.
The service and staff were excellent. The course was dry and impossible to play. Not a course I would recommend
Excellent service from teetimes. Lose to many balls!
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.
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
Always a Challenge, we lost our Balls and find other Balls.... Top Clubhouse!
Very friendly staff and starter. Golfcourse in very good shape
Excellent course and excellent staff. We had a great time
Really enjoyed our game. Great course and the staff were all very helpful and polite. We will return.
Bep Van Der Pas
At Espiche the course wins, not the players, they stand no chance.
Great Course, brillant Greens!
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.
Nice course, well kept greens, but speed of play could be better
Espische is also a very nice course. No buggy nessasary here.
The course and service was great. Enjoyed our round of golf.
Course in very good condition in particular the greens
Van der Lit
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.
Excellent course with really friendly staff. No problem ordering food which was delivered to us on the course.
Excellent golf course, much improved in last few years, brilliant new club house and facilities
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
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
First class course and Clubhouse.
Excellent golf course. Really friendly staff and great service. Course in great condition with some great driving holes. Organised by tee times.pt who were excellent especially Susana who looked after us so well.
R A Evans
Lovely welcome starter put us out on the tenth which gave us a smooth run through a busy field. Brilliant
Excellent service, polite, courteous and helpful, complete contrast to our experience yesterday at Alto. Course in excellent condition.
Enjoyable if you keep to the fairways. Into thick scrubland and bushes if you are not straight of the tee.
Good course great condition our pick of the five.
Hidden gem. Worth a trip out.
Challenging course rewarded by our lovely lunch in a beautiful setting
Beautiful and well laid out course with a fantastic clubhouse.
A tough course if you are off the fairway, even tougher when the wind is blowing. Great clubhouse and views.
Good course and clubhouse.
great value, tricky course
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 .
Fantastic service and stunning course
Nice new course, quite tough in places, fantastic clubhouse with fabulous views, very friendly and helpful staff.
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!
Very tight course and don't think we will be going back as too punishing
Difficult course but lovely friendly staff on and off course.
With 6 Beaufort... difficult! ;)
Dietmar Bloch von Blottnitz
Insgesamt in Ordnung. Freundlicher Service. Gepflegte Golfanlage.
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.
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.
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.
Netter und preisgünstiger Platz
Difficult tight course, be prepared to loose a number of golf balls. Fantastic clubhouse with very friendly staff.
very difficult , too many trees, lost to many balls
Beautiful difficult course....stunning clubhouse
Everything about the course and staff was brilliant would go back everytime
Most wonderful setting and well maintained. But - very unforgiving for the high handicapper.
very helpful staff. course in very good condition,
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
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.
A beautiful course that is well worth finding
Very good course though the rough is impossible
Very good & friendly
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.
Great for a quiet and fast round as it was very quiet. A true test for all levels.
Very disappointed as only able to offer us baguettes when we fished our round of golf
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.
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.
Thanks ,5 star service. Only problem could not pay online
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.
Terrible golf course. All players lost at least 10 balls, due to bad design. Will never play this course again
Lovely course...great staff. Deadly rough so need to hit straight every shot.
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
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.
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
*Buggy Recommended -
*Water hazards - on 2 or 3 holes
*Comments - a few blind tee shots , small landing areas . large greens
