Castro Marim Description

The main origin of the small historic town which dates back some 5.000 years as probably as an island serving the estuary of the River Guadiana. After its capture from the Moors in 1242 stronger battlements were constructed and these were later improved adding a castle by various Portuguese kings as it became an important point of defence of the frontier against Spain. During the 14th century the castle was the headquarters of the Order of Christ which was later replaced by the Knights Templar.

The nearby town of Vila Real de Santo Antonio took over Castro Marim's importance when it was completely rebuilt by the Marques de Pombal after the earthquake of 1755. With the construction of the bridge in 1991 across the River Guadiana it now provides a speedy driving connection with Seville and the rest of Spain. To the south of the town is the popular beach resort Monte Gordo that offers the tourist kilometres of sea washed sandy beach and bathing.

There are three golf courses in the area. The outstanding 18-hole Monte Rei Golf Course, the 27-hole Castro Marim Golf Course and the 18-hole Quinta do Vale Golf Course.

Ronald from Portugal
Quinta do Vale
A thinking golfers course!
Unusual and very challenging Severiano Ballesteros designed par 72 course - 6 of each par fives, fours and threes. Good course management is essential to avoid big numbers. All of the greens were magnificent but the first nine water holes had some scrappy fairways overlooked by abandoned, unfinished buildings. The clubhouse and course were not busy though July is the quietest month which was reflected in a very reasonable green fee of 81€ for two players including buggy. Deserves more attention!
