What the club says: This is a par 71 course that runs through an old olive grove. Designed by Ronald Fream, the greens are wide and deep and are protected by a total of 59 bunkers.
Greens are good - 9.5 on Stimp meter in January 2013, so not TOO quick, but a little on the hard side to get shots in to stop! Fairways are well cut and will take a divot. Bunkers seemed in good condition.

The course played well, being in great condition although it was a shame that the bunkers hadn't been raked first thing - they were like concrete.
The course itself is varied, with some wonderful holes. It was such a shame that the round took over 5 hours and no effort was made by the club to move things along.
The club facilities all seemed to be well appointed, but seemed to be under-staffed.
I was signed in as a guest and still paid â‚¬52 which made it expensive for the quality of the course. Gramacho is a much better option to play in the Pestana group of courses.
