What the club says: Vale da Pinta - Designed by the famous American golf course architect Ronald Fream and inaugurated in 1992 Vale da Pinta has earned its place as one of the best designed courses in the Algarve and in Europe.
Gramacho Golf Course - After his success designing the Vale de Pinta course, Ronald Fream teamed up with the former world No. 1 Nick Price to create the unique design of Gramacho. With 18 holes and 27 greens, plus numerous different tee points, players are able to enjoy the same course time and time again but always with slightly different challenges.
This course is one of my favourite courses just love everything about it variety and difficulty its got the lot. Just one small thing had a run in with one of marshals about slow play it wasn't warranted as the group behind us were a full hole to the rear i was not impressed. So he was told where to go in no certain terms.
This was a fine end to our break at Pestana Resort - Silves and Gramacho were lovbely different courses - this one (in my opinion) was a mixture of the best bits of both of the other two - barren and sandy round the edges on a few holes, very green and lush round the edges on others - the greens were the best we played on all week, tough to read but incredibly true. There are some very challenging holes not least the signature 13th across a big lake - For me, if i had to call it, this would be my favourite (though it is very close) of the three courses we played! Loved it and can't wait to go back in the future!
GRAMACHO - where we were staying for this break the course was very lovely and very green and a challenge for our fourball - if you play well here you can score very well! The sand in the bunkers were class - the resort itself was absolutely brilliant. The other courses we played were Vale de Pinta and Silves.

course was a lovely view on the eye but we didn't get told about a few greens that had been taken out of play so wasn't sure on yardages etc

Superb course - my favourite of the Pestana courses we played. Interesting positioning required, you can't just take it on off the tee every hole. Possibly would benefit from better hole sineage
Nice, easy playing course. Can get very busy and slow during afternoon rounds, so play early. Whilst i'm not the greatest golfer (16hcp), it would be better for them to have some sort of handicap checking as it can be very disheartening to get stuck behind people taking 10 shots for a par 4.
