Gramacho Golf Course Tips

Hole 1 (Par 4)
338 317 275
A picturesque tee shot. Lay up short of the central rock and tree outcrop to leave a second well struck short iron.

Hole 2 (Par 5)
512 476 426
It is a lengthy straight drive along the extreme right hand side of the fairway. Stay clear of two majestic pine trees and set up the ideal line towards the green. It is normally advisable to lay up the second shot in front of the myriad of bunkers which defend the front of the double green down in a valley. The distance is deceptive, making club selection important.

Hole 3 (Par 4)
339 309 284
This is followed by a genuine thinking golfers hole, the short par-4 8th (and 17th on the second loop). The distance off the tee is not important but accuracy is with the fairway being extremely narrow and a lake to the left and difficult rough to the right.

Hole 4 (Par 3)
186 162 115
Think of leaving an uphill putt on this testing par 3.

Hole 5 (Par 4)
365 342 308
Drive left of the rock outcrop. The second shot plays short off the downhill lie.

Hole 6 (Par 5)
475 416 358
Club selection is vital with the wind always coming into play.

Hole 7 (Par 3)
179 153 126
There is no shame in playing it as an easy par 5! Two good shots are needed to make an orthodox par.

Hole 8 (Par 4)
289 263 206
The 8th green is out to the left cut into a terrace just over the bank of the deep lake.It is usually reachable with a short iron second shot and be sure to carry the lake with your second shot.

Hole 9 (Par 4)
366 314 264
Over the left hand tree is the line off the tee. The uphill second shot is all carry and beware of the deep greenside bunkers.

Hole 10 (Par 3)
173 148 106
If you carry the fairway traps an easy second shot is the reward. Lay up left and face a tough second shot

Hole 11 (Par 4)
374 309 278
This hole is like several in the clever layout of the course. It differs in distance and angle of approach and it pays to have a quick look when playing the first time round. Left off the tee and then right for the second, setting up a straightforward uphill pitch.

Hole 12 (Par 5)
484 433 409
Carry the olive tree on the fairway and you have a pitch for a birdie chance

Hole 13 (Par 4)
360 327 271
It is difficult to hit the right hand side of the green. Aim for the centre and face the more difficult putt.

Hole 14 (Par 3)
178 169 132
Drive right of the rock outcrop and then use your distance judgment for this downhill pitch shot.

Hole 15 (Par 3)
347 376 453
Not a long shot from the tee but it requires a clean strike or you may visit the water hazard.

Hole 16 (Par 4)
376 353 325
Gamble on a long straight tee shot and you can enjoy an easy second. A lay up short of the bunker and dry stonewall is the safer choice.

Hole 17 (Par 4)
284 268 217
Just hit the fairway with your tee shot! The second shot is not long.

Hole 18 (Par 5)
482 452 395
On the second nine it is less daunting to reach the green with the approach shot as the line is well to the right of the lake. If you can reach the end of the left hand rock wall you have a chance at the green.
