Castro Marim consists of three nine hole loops – designed by Terry Murray. ‘The Grouse’, ‘The Atlantic’ and ‘The Guadiana’, provide golfers with the enviable
choice of playing either of two,18-hole combinations.
All three nine’s share the same, basic characteristics, dictated by the
terrain they occupy, epitomizing the often-quoted description:-
“following the contours of the land”. The Guadiana and Atlântico courses are the most mature of the three courses, with attractive pine trees lining the fairways. The courses are teeming with wildlife, especially partridge in the winter months. Fast and true greens, several of them elevated and protected by bunkers, inviting elevated tees and dogleg fairways carved out of canyons are features of the courses.
‘The Grouse’ is the newest of the three nine holes with the more open far-reaching inland hill views. With less trees lining the fairways, it bring with it a greater sense of space. Here fairways are more generous and the greens markedly larger, important contributing factors to a greater sense of freedom when teeing off.
