Gramacho Pestana Golf - Algarve
This rather uniquely designed 18 hole course with 27 varied greens unfurls through the gentle countryside of Carvoeiro, providing a challenging but attractive course.
Designed by former world nº 1 player Nick Price and golf course architect Ronald Fream , the course was originally a nine hole course that was very cleverly redesigned to become a fully fledged 18 hole course. The designers have made the most of the natural landscape, from the boulder outcrops to the carob and olive trees planted long before the existence of the course . These features combined with the carefully placed lakes and bunkers means you have to be technically accurate in your play and know which club to choose before hitting the ball.
A memorable hole is the long demanding 2nd . It is a par-5 where a lengthy straight drive along the extreme right hand side of the fairway will stay clear of two majestic pine trees and set up the ideal line towards the green. The signature hole is now probably the par 3 tenth - a picturesque hole, playing from an elevated tee to a green half surrounded by a lake, a tumbling fountain and tall palms which certainly add an exotic touch.
A challenging course.
