This gently undulating 18 hole par 72 course blends seamlessly into the stunning Algarvean landscape and offers a challenge that will get the attention of golfers of all abilities. The total yardage of just over 6,400 yards is healthy enough to challenge more experienced players while multiple sets of tees allow those who are less prodigious off the tee to still enjoy the course.
As with any good golf course though, the length is not the main obstacle to a good score. Sweeping undulations, natural lakes and streams and an abundance of natural fauna encourage golfers to think their way around the course and the slick greens will also test your concentration from start to finish. Espiche Golf is surrounded by open countryside and with views of nearby vineyards and the not too distant Monchique Mountains, it is a truly inspiring place to play golf.
Although currently in the final stages of construction, Espiche Golf will boasts an outstanding clubhouse before too long. Boasting a welcoming bar and a top quality restaurant, this clubhouse will be the perfect place to enjoy a post round meal and a few well deserved drinks. the 360 degree, panoramic views of the golf course will only add to the appeal.
It was a 2 club wind and this proved too difficult for the high handicappers with one of our party losing 14 balls due to the narrowness of the fairways and severity of the rough
Lovely course.......very much like to play again.
Espiche is tight and quirky. You have fairway, a strip of maybe 10 yard first cut rough and then serious bundai - as in lost ball. They really need to widen the rough and grow it to stop balls which have initially landed on the fairway ending up lost. Also a lot of work going on in bunkers which are GUR. Greens were abysmal - very slow and very bumpy. They had had their club championship in the morning too! Green keeper would be sacked at our place had he produced greens like these for such an event. Maybe being a little unfair. I've played it four times previously and enjoyed the quirkiness but as mentioned combination of poor condition and poor set-up make the wrong side of challenging - add in some breeze and its almost unplayable. Our average stableford score for eight golfers with handicaps ranging from 7 to 18 was 26. Not to mention the lost balls tally!! Pity but wont be back - would much rather play another combination at Palmares or Boavista. Final nail..... staff very off-hand!
Lovely club house, very good course. We were a mixed ability group and everyone enjoyed it, though it deserves it reputation for being a challenge. Spray it about and you lose balls quickly but you can score if you keep it in play. There was a a little work on the course when we were there but didn't interfere much.
Gorgeous location, beautiful clubhouse with 360 degree views of the course. Quite difficult course, but free buggies.
Difficult but a great course and worth a visit.
Tough but enjoyable course where if you stray off the fairway you tend to lose your ball.
4 holes. Rained off.
This is a must play; in fact we played it again on our rest day. The greens and course were as good if not better than any on the Algarve. Excellent service from all at the course; given the price it was outstanding. Bring some golf balls as the course is tight but straight drivers will score well.
Enjoyed the tough course, didn't play very well
A great golf course, needs managing and must be straight hitter or take a lot of balls. Good course to play. Fantastic clubhouse for after golf.
Not very enjoyable very hard
