Golf in Carvoeiro

CARVOEIRO, The once small intimate fishing of Carvoeiro has spread to the east and west with expensive villas and comfortable holiday apartments. The one central village street has now become three, each lined with bars, smart restaurants and tourist shops. Carvoeiro has become popular destination for tourists and golfers to the Algarve.

The village now boasts two nearby 18-hole golf courses, the Gramacho Golf Course and the Vale da Pinta Golf Course. There is also the Vale de Milho friendly 9-hole course located on the east side of the village. There is a very active Tennis Club on the west side and for family entertainment in the summer the popular Water Slide Park.

LAGOA, Somewhere between 1242 and 1246 the Moors took possession of this then small-fortified hamlet. From this past the town of Lagoa has since grown into an administrative town for the local area including Carvoeiro. It is conveniently situated very close to the motorway making it easy to travel to either the west or back to Faro.

SILVES, The attractive and historic City of Silves was once the capital of the Algarve. Standing proudly on a hill it can be traced back to existing some 1.000 BC. Evidence shows that it was already a place of note in Roman times but it really became an important place during its Moor occupation for about three centuries. Giving it the name of 'Xelb', they constructed lavish palaces and created the cultural centre of learning for the whole Iberian Peninsula. Imported lions and other wild animals are recorded to have roamed freely through exotic gardens in the various palaces. The remains of nearly all its historic buildings were destroyed during the 1755 earthquake. The city has suffered very little change due to the advent of tourism. Located in the countryside between the City of Silves and the town of Lagoa is the 18-hole the Silves Golf Course.

Recent Carvoeiro Course Reviews

Silves Golf by Gary from Germany
Miss the Driving Range
A course in a beautiful environment and excellent shape. Perfect fairways and greens amongst old olive trees. We‘ll play again though it has very short holes, that makes it less challenging. However: no chance for a warm up, as there is no
driving area and a ridiculously small putting green. That‘s the only disadvantage.
Silves Golf by Michael from Germany
don’t miss out! Great country course. We had a great time!
Gramacho by Darren from Portugal
Well maintained and pretty course
A very nice layout and in excellent condition. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food of a good standard.

There were some very interesting holes but overall it’s not especially challenging. My playing partner and I both scored well. It’s the 5th or 6th time I’ve played Gramacho and I’ll definitely be back again.
