Set in one of the most stunning parts of the Algarve, Gramacho golf course benefits from both the spectacular golfing landscape and incredible weather of Southern Portugal. A part of the famous Pestana collection of golf courses and resorts, Gramacho measures up to the same lofty standards as the neighbouring Vale de Pinta. 

After his success designing the Vale de Pinta course, American Ronald Fream teamed up with the former world No. 1 golfer Nick Price from Zimbabwe to create the unique design of Gramacho. Located next to the bustling town of Portimao, golfers staying the area have the beach on tap and a multitude of great courses to play.

Gramacho Course

It is one of only a few courses in the world with 18 sets of tees and fairways, but with 27 greens. This means players are able to enjoy the same course time and time again with slightly different challenges. Holes 1 through 4 and 14 through 18 have two greens each, and your approach to each hole will vary depending on which greens are in play.

Even though this course has hosted the Portuguese Ladies Open on a number of occasions, Pestana Gramacho is well-known as a championship course that is playable for all abilities, even those with a very high handicap.

Apart from the fantastic design, Fream and Price managed to incorporate the traditional landscape into the layout by using the natural stone outcrops, historical dry stone walling and existing ancient trees, along with some artfully sculpted lakes and bunkers.

Experienced golfers will certainly know that they have played a superb golf course with its testing par of 71 and a tiger tee length of over 6,700 yards.

We were a party of 7 ranging from a handicap of 9 through to 28. I personally loved the course. It was a good test with some some holes offering lovely views. The only negative was the bunkers that seemed all to be very hard sand.

A picturesque course but whilst open had enough difficulty with uphill greens and hidden greens to keep you focused. This was most evident on the ever undulating greens, where no put seemed straight.

Gramacho Course (Pestana Gramacho Residences)

you can understand why this course has been on the European tour. this course was fantastic with great looking and tricky holes. the whole lay out was fantastic, with the surrounding villas and condos, which by the way are stunning architectural buildings. my only downfall was.. not only my golf game stunk but the change of greens threw us with our yardage watches giving us wrong info.. but it is a minor thing and apart from that what an experience it was to play some great courses in a stunning country. can't thank yourgolftravel enough for organising it all. looking forward to next year now
