A relaxing place

Located close to the medieval town of Castro Marim, in the Algarve, Portugal, the Castro Marim golf course has a very special setting in the peaceful atmosphere of the eastern Algarve. Castro Marim was in fact the first golf course to be built in this region, offering players beautiful views over the Atlantic Ocean, the River Guadiana and the nearby nature reserve, of the Algarve.

A 27 holes course

The Castro Marim Golf Course runs through undulating hills dotted with pines and occasional views across the River Guadiana to neighbouring Spain. The Castro Marim Course provides three nine hole loops – the Grouse, the Atlantic and the Guadiana. The Castro Marim Golf Course calls for careful play due strategically placed water hazards and fairway terrain, which can place you in trouble. This is not to mention the well placed bunkers waiting for an erring ball. The par-3 on the 17th is a hole that calls for special club selection with bunkers in front of the green and a lake behind, whilst at the same time subject to the prevailing winds off the sea.

While the Atlantic and the Guadiana courses of Castro Marim wend their way through pine-clad hillsides, those of the subsequent nine ‘the Grouse’ – bring with them a greater sense of space, since the land is somewhat less wooded. At Castro Marim, the fairways are more generous and the greens markedly larger, important contributing factors to a greater sense of freedom when teeing off.
