Golf club hire
Need to ensure they acknowledge the emails regarding club hire or you need to message them. Had to use graphite shaft as they had no steel even though I’d emailed both yourselves and them requesting this

A typical challenging Algarve course in good condition

Bit of an issue with buggies but resolved before we teed off

A lot of various levels of golfers on the course so it became a very long 5hr plus round which took away the joy of the golf

Great course with excellent fairways
Loved this course - apart from the treacherous lake on the 17th. Have played it twice in the past few days & will play again. So easy to get around the course - the fairways were splendid.

Perfect day at Gramacho.
Loved the course. As a high handicapper it’s wide fairways gave a chance to score. Greens in very good condition often undulating which added to the challenge and fun. Clubhouse, bar, patio all excellent. One word of warning, you MUST book clubs well in advance if hiring as availability limited on a very popular course. Would love to play it again.

Gramacho May 23rd
First time playing in the area so didn’t know what to expect. Gramacho was in fairly good condition! The greens were a bit fluffy but I don’t know if that’s par for round here. Staff at the course we very polite & helpful. We were a tad surprised to hear there would be no drinks / snack buggy in the course. Pace of play was good. 4 & a 1/4 hours in that heat was a relief.

Drunken British Golfers
What a pity, such a beautiful course, but....they let everybody play, beginners and even drunken British players. Too much waitings. Its a shame for the operators of that course
Rudolf from Netherlands

Geweldige baan, zelfs na de zware regen van de uren ervoor.

Helaas bleek het clubhuis overgenomen door een uitzonderlijk lawaaiige en stevig drinkende meute. Ongelooflijk dat niemand van de staf een poging deed om de atmosfeer voor iedereen genietbaar te houden.

En oh ja, de lunch was van verbazend slechte kwaliteit.

The layout is great and generally in good condition. My only comment is that the greens were OK but not 100%.

Gramacho 18 Nov 21 - disappointing greens
Played Gramacho in the afternoon. We played in a four ball with two members (4 & 20 hcp). We liked the lay out of the course but were disappointed with condition of the greens. Many were pitted and therefore bumpy and the 16th was particularly poor. We also played Palmares and Espiche and both of these courses were in much better condition.

A great day out
Beautiful course. It was a pleasure to play there. An unusual clubhouse with a spacious terrace and well stocked pro shop. We got a warm welcome when we arrived . The bar staff were very friendly and food was excellent

Martin from Portugal

Great all round course.
Second time of playing this course. The first time in 2012. Not a lot has changed in way of course improvements during this time. That not to say don’t go it’s great value for money. The staff were great and receptive. The fairways were in good condition and the greens were good for the time of year.

If I have one major criticism it would be the price of the buggy hire €45 which is well overpriced.

Ronnie from Portugal

Our favourite course. Location is good, staff pleasant and helpful, course in great condition and not too busy. The only downside was the number of unrepaired pitch marks.
Nigel from Portugal

Lovely course, every hole different.

We had the course to ourselves which made things even better.

Would recommend it to anyone.

Gramacho - a round and a bite to eat.
Nice course wit plenty of space for misses. Several short holes that you can drive the ball close to the green or on if you hit a good one.

Good condition, but greens are slow.

Good food too.

We’ve played Gramacho a few times and every game there has always been very pleasant. The course condition is always superb and well maintained. Lovely course and not too challenging.

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.
Roger from United Kingdom
on Fri, 13th Mar 2020
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

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

Grzegorz from Poland

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

Mogens from Denmark

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
on Sun, 7th Apr 2019
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!
