Last Euro Round

Scorching hot day, fantastic course and facilities. Very tight layout and excellent greens and bunkers. Highly recommend.

Nice lay out , got punished a few time on drives that I thought were good only to find they ended up running into bush or bunkers , due to sloping fairways. Greens not to bad excellent club house,

New course which we all thought wasn't too bad...lots of blind shots though and the greens were very slow and hadn't been cut that day

Not as brutal as some might tell you

Some of my club colleagues had visited Espiche before my visit and told me it was virtually unplayable if you missed the fairway. Admittedly, if your radar is off, you will lose a few balls but you need to be pretty wild to be reloading. I thought it was great. Some tough holes and some holes where you're best to leave the driver in the bag, but that's part of the fun isn't it? Real test of strategy and accuracy and just keeping the ball in play. And the greens were superb. Apparently, they are also growing areas of rough to make the course even more playable over the next few months and that will save a few more balls from hurtling into the areas where they will never be seen again. It's a course which certainly focuses the mind standing on the tees though.

A lovely looking but tough track

Great golf course, albeit a very tough one. Course is in a great condition, with the greens beautiful and lively.
Lovely looking clubhouse and very friendly staff there. Just wish that the breakfast menu could be a bit more extensive, and similar to the breakfasts that they used to produce.

Chris

Long course and quite challenging for a high handicap golfer. Take plenty of balls as any excursion from the fairway results in lost ball. Even balls in the centre of the fairway can run off into the bushes.

Straight hitters

If your hitting over 200 yds you need to be straight. Long and slightly wayward may be lost especially as many shots will be blind. I am no John Daly but regularly had to club down from the fees as it was hard to find the ball when you didn't see it land. A buggy is a godsend as it is hilly hence the numerous blind shots. On a different day I could easily have shot 20 more!

Brilliant course, worth a visit.

I’ve played here a few times now and never been disappointed. The course was challenging and in great condition all round. The clubhouse for a drink a food after should not be missed either.

one to avoid

I live in the Algarve and played this course last month for the first time. I will not be going back. There is no rough to speak of so your ball bounces along merrily into the undergrowth on most shots. Even drives on or around landing zone markers could not be found, or in a bunker. Greens were fine. Clubhouse good. Friendly staff. But until they sort it out, go somewhere else!

I am a high handicapper at 20 but you leave the course wanting to play again.
They are making improvements to the course after listening to the members and guests.
Building banks to stop the ball running off.
Very playable even for me (scored 34 points)
A challenge but surely thats want you need to improve your game.
Club house and food excellent,
play this course as very reasonable.!!
