Castro Marim golf course has breathtaking mountain, river and sea views, all part of the spectacular scenery to be enjoyed by those wishing to take walks merely throughout the surrounding countryside.The Golf Course has been designed to give pleasure to any level of golfer. The challenging aspects of the golf course, whilst providing interest to the expert, are also a test to the ability of the average handicap golfer and yet remain pleasurable to both. A driving range, chipping and putting green have also been built so as to provide ever important practice facilities. These are supervised by a team of golf professionals who are more than pleased to assist you in improving your game. The entire golf course is irrigated by means of an underground so called 'leaky pipe' system. This enables golfers to play at times when courses with conventional aerial sprinklers would normally be unavailable.
Have played Castro Marim for many years the course was in the best condition ever.

Very nice golfcourse. Well maintained and beautifully placed in its surroundings. Buggy recommended.
Nice course. Well maintained. Many scenic views. Carry some extra balls with you ;-)
Impressed on arrival - nice drive and entrance to eh club. 4 of us played the Grouse & Guadiana courses. The first 2 holes had us wondering if it was worth the drive from Quinta Do Lago - the first cut was "rough" making it difficult to find our balls and the greens weren't the best. However, the course then opened out and we were pleasantly surprised with the all round condition of the next 7 holes of the Grouse course and the even nicer Guadiana course. The views are quite something to behold, adding more enjoyment to the round. Staff and service in the pro shop and bar were excellent, as were the facilities. Extremely good value for money. We all came away thankful that we'd made the effort and will look forward to visiting Castro Marim again on our next trip. Tamar at Teetimes.PT provided an excellent, personal booking service - highly recommended and will certainly use them again for future arrangements.
Friendly people , great course, challenging and different holes. And them bringing round ice cold towels during the heat of the game -excellent touch
Impressive hilly course which offers real challenges and beautiful views. In good condition and greens playing well.
Lovely golf course with great views and picturesque holes
The course is a challenge if you are not a straight hitter but it is in excellent condition given the time of the year. There are several holes with superb views over the surrounding area and across into Spain. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. It is very good value for money.
very friendly , great course

Arranging this through tee times was easy and straight forward. quick response for confirmation and good prices. Not impressed with CM pricing though, 5 euro for a hand cart!! most places are 1 euro or free!! Perhaps we won't visit that course again.

Played all 27 holes over two separate days. Course was in good condition and my friend and I had a couple of very good days.
Mario de Melo2018-05-10
Nice course configuration, well maintained , very enjoyable game.
Absolutely top value golf. Beautiful well maintained course, excellent accommodation and food
as always, it was good fun to play the course; good condition, friendly people - excellent!
A challenging but beautiful course. Really long and undulating so definitely needed the buggy.
Challenging but enjoyable
Richard Moss 2019-02-23
Excellent greens. Good value but buggy recommended
Back nine tee boxes were too close to each other. A bit dangerous...
David Reilly 2019-02-17
Very nice day of golf. Club house was nice but we did not stay.
Interesting golf course, not to long but very narrow fairways and some blind shots.
exciting golf course, buggy is highly recommended
By far the friendliest and best value golf on the Algarve
Club house very good superb views towards Spain from terrace food is of a high standard course in good condition not a long course narrow fairways club selection important too tip bring plenty of balls
Very nice but difficult course
We were not mad about the course. It was not maintained very well
Wonderful lay out, good fairways and greens. We enjoyed this course
Excellent golf course with stunning views, nice clubhouse and food, warm friendly staff
Diana de Vroege2018-09-22
Nice course, valluwe for money. In the heat of the dat cool towels????
Excellent course - good condition - greens a bit slower that ideal but otherwise all good
Good customer service and half way round we were given an ice cold towel which on a hot day was a real treat. The group behind hit through us on 3 occasions even though were kept right up with the group in front of us - it's a shame some golfers are idiots. Of course this was no reflection on the golf course itself. If you are looking for a medium length course (c.6,300 yards off the back (white) tees), with many challengingly tight drives then this is the course for you.
Joli parcours technique et vallonné, souvent serré pour les départs. Très bon entretien. Staff aux petits soins :-) Bon resto aussi.

Totally in love with this course it's like millionairs paradise
Phil Townsend 2018-06-25
first 9 greens sanded and very slow 2nd nine a bit bare and bumpy but quicker. fairways not a patch on quinta do vale which is across the road
Excellent game of golf in under 4 hours
By far the best value golf course in the Algarve
Very helpful and well informed staff. Grouse and Guadiana courses played well and were in good condition.
Tee time was moved half an hour back because of a competition, which resulted in very slow play, 3 1/2 hours for the first 9 holes, played the back 9 in 1 1/2 hours after the competition finished
A very enjoyable experience. Yes the layout a challenge But very playable and an experience not to be missed
Vandaag guadana en atlantic course guadiana is de mooiste van de 3....atlantic...veel afwisseling maar wat compacter dan de andere 2. Castro marim zeker een prachtige accommodatie prettige atmosfeer. Hole 19 zeer relaxt
Erg mooie baan...perfect gebruik gemaakt van de natuur.. buggy is noodzakelijk. Ook al zijn de fairwas kaal....zeer zeker de moeite waard. Greens prima. Mooie vergezichten van hoge tees. Mooi clubgebouw...heerlijke snacks.
Mike Lee 2018-05-08
Some parts of the course were in need of attention. There was no starter. Needs some work to improve the complete experience.
Another good game at Castro Marim. Wonderful views towards Spain
Lovely course very hilly, needed the buggy!! Very interesting.
A very relaxing round of golf with wonderful views.
Very difficult coursed but in great condition
Played Castro MARIM on 19 April 2017. Course in reasonable shape but very quirky, lots of slopes on fairways and these cause you to be penalised for good drives. You have to aim left or right to get the ball to finish on the fairway. Greens okay. Not the best course in the area.
Wegen des Wetters verschoben um einen Tag. Personal sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert. Platz gepflegt und trotz des Dauerregens tags zuvor gut bespielbar. Jederzeit wieder.
Mr Tony Field2018-04-04
very good. 3 by 9 hole, each different challenges.
A. van Doorn2018-03-24
Not in good shape but interesting to play.
Quiet nice golf-course, course in moderate conditions with rather slow greens. As not that busy a nice and relaxing round of golf, worth to go there, excellent price/performance ratio.
very good course in good shape, kind staff
nice course and godd services
Reception and Caddie Master staff were 1st class.. Grouse 9 good, although greens not great. Guadiana 9,poor,but greens better. No course Marshall, people in front of us could not play golf and we would have finished 30 minutes earlier. There is a real lack of signage from the N125, even 500 metres from the entrance at a T junction there are 2 signs with golfers on them,1 to the right and 1 to the left! We started at 1.45.
Philip Townsend 2018-03-11
The course was in reasonably good condition, we were disappointed that the bar prices have risen dramatically
Clubhouse good service, course and greens are in good condition
Attractive and challenging hilly course without boring holes. Fairway ok..greens need a bit more time. Overall very recommendable for players hcp - 20 or better.
Reception was fine - there was no starter. Course in good condition and the layout was interesting.
Karen Wilson 2017-12-29
Excellent. Staff friendly and course in good condition
Very friendly people, the golfcourse is in a good condition
norbert van der Plas2017-12-17
Nice course although you need a caddie book because the lay-out is complex.
Excellent course, facilities & staff. Could not be faulted
Enjoyable round, buggy was appreciated as it's hilly. Got to play Atlantic course for the first time, which was a plus.
Sadly the greens were not in a good condition and this significantly impacted on our enjoyment. The rest of the course was fine and up to expectations
Frits van Duijn2017-11-01
So in Oktober when its wet in Holland we like to play so 2 a 3 times per week by Castro Marim. Whe like to be with Tee Times for so 7 years and when we know the time and every year we know to find us and they regalade it for us. Castro Marim and Tee Times are close friends for us. Fam F van Duijn Pijnacker The Netherlands.
Challenging course, golf cart a necessity
Fantastic course, a bit rough in places with patchwork greens but a real experience. Shame our game did not match the quality of the course.
Most of the tees and greens were poor. The bartender in the evening was lazy.
We truly enjoyed playing this course. Excellent facilities and the staff outstanding. Will definitely play it again.
Mr Stephen Macguffie2017-10-15
The course was in good condition and far less crowded than those courses on the Western area of the Algarve. Always good value for money
This was my first time playing this course. Found it very challenging Condition could have been better especially around the greens. The buggy we had was definitely dangerous as the brakes were faulty Good group played and all mixed well.
Not in great condition. Several holes made to fit the terrain resulting in gimmicky and poor golf holes.
Malcolm Stuart Russell 2017-10-04
Whereas the overall experience at Castro Marim was good, excellent views, club house etc. The condition of the course was not as good as some we played, the course being in need of some attention in places.
Castro Marim GC is a hidden gem.Please do not tell anyone!!
greens showing signs of a long hot summer - only to be expected. Excellent value for money!
Very friendly , helpful ( as it appeared we had missed our tee time slot ) -got us on the course as soon as possible
Atlantico 9 holes not in good condition
Phil Townsend 2017-07-18
The green had been treated and were in a poor condition covered in sand
nice touch of handing out cool/wet hand towels out on the course
Tough course, no room for error, but thoroughly enjoyable and a great golfing experience
John O Connor2017-05-06
Very nice except first day we played there it was busy and we had to wait for 1.5 hours for buggy (we're lazy)
Sixteen players enjoyed the Guadiana and Atlantico courses on a lovely April day, course in good condition.
Castro Marim is a kind of hidden gem. It is challenging, usually in good condtion. I have experienced better greens there. The view and setting, is absolutely acceptable and green fee is at the right level.
Our favourite golf course in ther Eastern Algarve, so we are biassed. This time we stayed in superb accommodation and everything first class
Castro marim. All three 9 holes well kept, Enjoyed playing them, Forgot my mosquito spray, Big mistake.
Holes were very similar, enjoyed the company of the other pair partnered with
Greens a bit rough!
also grat views to the guadiana bridge and excellent course
The brakes on the buggies was very poor, it was very difficult to stop them going downhill. They were in a dangerous condition.
great course with some lovely views. Only downside was the buggy ran out and we had to walk the last for holes! and they only paid us back half.
William Edward Green2016-11-06
As good as usual,excellent continental breakfast.
again very friendly course in good condition.
thoroughly enjoyed as usual although quite alot of bare patches on fairways
a very nice course that is a challenge espicially the first 9 holes(the Grouse).the greens were good although bunkers could have been better. Had a very nice meal in clubhouse which was excellent value for money. 7.5/10
Very friendly , nice touch of cold towels brought round to us mid-round on a very hot afternoon. Stunning course
Likewise to Benamor
Castro Marim golf and food in club house is my favourite in the Algarve We also played Quinta do Val. they are desperate for bus
excellent course in great condition. cant believe you can play this quality of course for so little money. bit of a drive from albufeira, but well worth the extra mileage. our friend who lives just over the border in Spain pops across the river to play this course at least twice a month, we can see why. will play again.
Lovelly course worth the trip out. Nice and quiet but on course service was great and some lovely holes.
Excellent service from the staff at Castro marim. Long course and a fair challenge.
Excellent condition few other players around
Great course in good condition and thankfully very quiet, would definitely play it again.
I hadn't played Castro Marim for a number of years, the quality of the golf course has certainly improved over the period.
Excellent service as usual!
Alan Potts 2016-02-08
Beautiful and woderfully quirky. Love it
Found Castro Marim to be a good course, but killed us walking, as there were no buggies available. We're told buggies had to be pre booked. (We didn't know this beforehand.) Buggies are needed on this course as there are a lot of hills.
Brian Buckeridge 2015-10-16
nice course but would recommend buggy which i'd pre booked for my group.
