What the club says: Located near the historic town of Castro Marim, this recently built course runs through undulating parkland and hilly terrain. It has a very special setting in the peaceful atmosphere of the eastern Algarve and was in fact the first course to be built in this region, offering players beautiful views over the Atlantic Ocean, the River Guadiana and the nearby nature reserve. Designed by Terry Murray, the course has managed to make use of the natural undulations of the rolling hills and is sprinkled with many ornamental lakes. It calls for careful play with strategically placed water hazards and fairway terrain that can put you in trouble. Combined with bunkers that have the ability to attract any stray shots, successfully conquering this course can be an immensely satisfying experience.

Challenging and enjoyable course

Played the Grouse as the front nine and the Guadina as the back nine. Both were excellent with elevated tees, fast and tricky greens and quite a bit of wind to add to the challenge.

Not a long course but narrow fairways and some blind holes, will like to play the third 9 to form an overall opinion of the courses.

Another east Algarve challenge

A unique 27-hole design, that might have one scratching their heads; sometimes you're not sure which tee box to use for which hole. Also, the first 18 is very much different from the third nine. The greens could use some TLC. But, all 3-nines are challenging in their own way.

Very difficult if you are not straight. A great test. Best bit was the caddie master bringing out iced towels to cool off in the heat. Great views across to Spain.

Played mid May'16 (excl Grouse course), and a true joy. Some beautiful holes, fantastic club house overlooking the course and in neqar on perfect condition, especially considering monsoon rains the week before
Loved it (well playing front 9 in 23 points helped matters too)

Played the Grouse and Guadiana courses. This is a tight, hilly course with a number of interesting holes. This is the third or forth time I've played Castro Marim. The course is challenging, and requires accuracy in huge preference over distance.

On previous visits to the course the condition was never as issue. This time, however, the greens were in very poor condition, and were easily the worst we played during our week. Every one of them had large numbers of diseased patches that disrupted a smooth roll.

The clubhouse was luxurious and provided good food at a reasonable price before and after the round.

This is a hilly course and buggies would be a big help. Even better would be buggies that manage to survive the round. 2 of the 6 buggies for our group gave up the ghost out on the course!

We played the Grouse and Guadiana (the Atlantic was closed due to poor condition). The grouse was in reasonable condition but the Guadiana was in a pretty poor state (especially the greens). As a result we got the green fee for 54euro rather than the usual 80+ which was reasonable. Both courses felt like they could do with some love and attention. The Grouse is a nice layout and you feel like a mountain goat on some of the tee's so a buggie is really important! On both courses, the fairways run stright into a rocky rough which you have to drop from, this makes it a tough course as the fairways are tight and being in the hills, there was quite a bit of wind. With a bit of tidying up this could be a really great track and something different to the usuall west algarve courses. The views to spain are magnificant

Lovely setting for a golf course, found the 'rough' on the grouse and guardiana courses a bit ridiculous as it's just rock but a good test for all golfers nonetheless. Clubhouse looked amazing
