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.

Silves Golf by RICHARD from United Kingdom
Silves
Lovely course but very slow. Didn't seem to be enough time between spaces so nearly 5 hour round and 2 group wait on some of the par 3s. 70 euros to hire buggy and 1 set of clubs which I thought expensive
Gramacho by Jamie Thornton from United Kingdom

Course is kept & played really well! Outstanding.
Silves Golf by Paul from United Kingdom
Good Course in fantastic condition
Good course in fantastic condition, especially as it's fairly new. The fairways are probably the best I have played on and the tees and greens are not far behind. Not a particularly long course but many holes are reasonably tight and you have to think your way round. The 470 mtr par 5 13th is a fantastic hole with an elevated tee looking down on a fairway that winds around a large lake. It's a must play!!
Vale da Pinta by Brian Matchett from Portugal
Could not fault this course. In excellent condition staff very helpful and friendly. We had a great day with no holdups. Would highly recommend.
Silves Golf by Martin from United Kingdom
Interesting round
Interesting course with some elevated tees. Feels a lot more open than some other courses in Portugal which I liked with great views of the surrounding area. Could do with better signage!
