Love Gramacho
Great holiday course. Not the longest or the toughest but the undulations and greens are always tricky.

Always good quality and enjoyable.

Good track
Nice course and the staff were all very welcoming. We went off at 7:57 and it only took us 3 hours and 35 minutes to get round with a buggy! Lots of holes with dual greens which can be a little confusing when playing with a gps watch. All round good experience.

Good course, nothing too special
I play the Gramacho golf course for over 10 years, and it feels like coming home every time. The course offers some great holes, although the challenge is missing when your handicap gets better (<10). Greens are good, as are the fairways. Do not expect anything too special, as this course is for all type of golfers and mostly used by resort golfers.

Course way too overloaded. 4 and a half hours to do 14 holes and unable to finish because it went dark! And we were only a 2 ball after 9 holes as the people we were paired with went in after 9 th.

Lovely course
We really enjoyed the course but only played 9 holes due to very heavy rain and wind. Despite this the course was in excellent condition and not crowded. We had booked a further round but had to cancel because of injury.

The club very kindly agreed to refund the booking fee via Algarve Golf

The course is in wonderful shape and the changes in elevation make for challenging shots

By far my favourite course on the Algarve.
I love everything about Gramacho from the course layout to playing conditions to excellent value for money. By far my favourite course on the Algarve and plan on playing here every year.

Very average course but it is priced accordingly
Extremely short course with a couple of 'mickey mouse' holes. Green speed also lacks consistency.

Gramacho golf course
We were a 2 ball and held up from hole 3 onwards . Still enjoyable but greens in very poor condition

Nice course for a relaxing round of golf. Very good also when you play with kids. Greens in poor condition when we played. Some holes with nice views. Sometimes surranding villas are to close.
Colin from United Kingdom
on Wed, 12th Jun 2019
Great course for all abilities
We play here every year and we always score well. This makes it perfect for holiday golfing.

Beer and a burger on the balcony watching lesser golfers struggling up to the 18th is the ideal way to round off the days

oh you must be so good wish I were as good as you must be W*****
Christopher from Portugal
on Wed, 5th Jun 2019
Nice but short
Nice little course, driver not really needed unless your feeling brave and try driving some of the greens, which are possible as the course is very short.

Handicap 11 score 77

Bad organisation at start

It is not the first time there is starting problems. Last time was it lack of trolleys this time was we delayed appro. 25 minutes and I had to discuss with other players about starting time.

It is for now the last time we have played Gramacho

No problems with our reservation at algavegol.net it was ok

Best regards

Mogens Dunmose

Hello Mogens, thank you for your review and sorry to learn of your delayed tee time. Would you like us to file a formal complaint with Gramacho?

slightly hilly course with undulated fairways, fast green. Nice course excellent maintained. A bit short from yellow. Only few blind holes.
James from United Kingdom
on Tue, 23rd Apr 2019
Great course. Every hole nice on the eye and a chord challenge off the black tees.

Only downside was they are moving some of the greens and the Garmin GPS watch was still giving yardages to the old green locations. Not sure how this can be changed?

Dominique from Belgium

Très agréable mais greens difficiles
Practice introuvable, mais parcours varié et amusant, avec beaucoup de dénivelé et de doglegs, très bien entretenu. Greens très très difficiles car très pentus...

Golf experience at Gramacho
Ann and I enjoyed our round, the course was playing very well for this time of year, the greens were very fast and you really had to concentrate when putting, it was even more pleasing to hear that it had been snowing back home in Scotland 😀

The staff were very pleasant and helpful, we were also paired up with a very nice couple so all in all a very enjoyable days golf 👍

Ursula from Ireland

Excellent course. Very disappointing that it took 5 hours to play and that there was no ranger to monitor the pace of play. We finished the last 2 holes in twilight and it took from the enjoyment of the round
Marc from United Kingdom

Well designed and testing course and relatively cheap compared to other course on the Algarve, Will definitely be playing here again.
Graham Barron from United Kingdom

Good course
This course is always busy and the time taken will depend on other players handicaps. Pestana courses are much the same open enough interesting enough and always worth a visit. Great facilities and staff.
Tony from United Kingdom
on Sat, 22nd Sep 2018
Worth a trip!
Well organised on arrival and tee time adjusted to pair up with another husband and wife couple. Course in good condition, the only issue being slow play. When will handicap certificates ever be asked for? Overall a decent experience with towels available on completion for a shower.

Fine resort course
A typical resort course winding through villas; fine for a bit of fun with your friends and in good condition but not as challenging or as interesting as Boavista nor any of the real golf courses such as Palmares, Faldo, Penina etc

Good Course -Go Play
Overall a really nice course that demands you to think your way round, avoiding some strategically placed hazards and bunkers. Greens, tees and fairways are well watered and in good condition. Only problem was putting out walking golfers ahead of buggies which meant we and several other groups had to wait on almost all tees from the 5th onwards and resulted in a 4 hour round. However, well recommended and good value.
Damian from Portugal

Gramacho golf course. A lovely play.
Lovely course thats a good challenge to all types of handicaps. Would recommend playing it to everyone. Staff also very nice at golf shop and clubhouse. Would definately play again if I get the chance during the rest of my weeks stay here in Carvoeiro.

Gramacho review.
Very nice course in great condition. The tees were as good s some greens I have played. We were finished in 3 hours 10 minutes. Don't annoy the starter as he is very officious!

Strongly recommended.
A good test of golf. Very playable even after heavy rain. Good greens and fairways. Helpful staff who accommodated an earlier tee time for us to avoid the forecast rain. They even loaned my wife a putter without charge as she had forgotten to bring hers.

Give it a miss
Scruffy - tees and greens; excessively hilly; pretty featureless; some 'joke' holes e.g. 10th and green of 11. Not cheap at 52 52 buggy at 45. O'Connor MUCH better - and only 76 76 including buggy.

A must play course When you are in the Algarve

Good track and great value, could be better...
Good course and played really well - some really challenging holes and a few great par threes with elevated tees. For 50 euros great value.

Clubhouse was getting refurbished, which was why the service was slow.

Practice green chipping area wasn't great, greens a wee bit inconsistent too, maybe because the course is heavily used - very slow today.

Also hoping to have a warm up on the range but was told it was 5 mins away by car, not great having just been dropped off by taxi ?!

Great course ,one of my favourite in the Algarve .Good mix of holes and great course for most standards of players.

Great day
Very enjoyable golf course. Glad that we were the second group out today as the course was very busy. Two things needing improvement- drink cart was only seen once, and hole 17 needs to have the water hazard clearly indicated from the tee box. A good shot is penalized unfairly.
Darren Ferguson from United States

Nice Course but Slow
Course great and looks nice. Took 5 hours to complete so slow play was an issue.

Best round since 2012 in Muscat
A great course to play. Every hole different. Only grumble is that the tee boxes could be better.

Good course
Really liked Gramacho. Would even be nicer if they opened the white tees. A very good test of golf and fair too. Absolutely need a buggy and they were not as plentiful as they should be here.

Excellent course we'll maintained. Some great holes especially the back nine. Staff very friendly
on Mon, 12th Sep 2016
Great for mid to high handicappers.
Loved this course, possibly as I had a round to be proud of. By no means a hard course but never the less, very fair. Good greens and true if you can read them. Will definitely be back.

Gramacho Carvoeiro
A great lay-out, be it that from time to time it was not easy to figure out the lay out of the hole in front of us. Errant shots will not be punished, due to wide fairways and short rough.

Some greens were in not so good condition, but those that were, were true and okay on speed.

Clubhouse is nice with a good view of the 18th. hole
