Very easy booking in & allowed to tee off early

Andrew Davies2019-06-28
A warm welcome from the desk and the starter. Course was in its usual excellent condition aside from the greens which had been recently hollow tined and top dressed. This was advised by the starter before play commenced. The round was followed by a nice lunch and much needed drink in the lovely clubhouse.

W D Gibson2019-06-07
Well kept course.lots of bunkers . Greens not easy to read .A good test of golf.

Sean Rynne 2019-06-04
Beautiful course, really enjoyed playing as we do every year, totally recommend

Dr. Markus Feidicker2019-04-17
This was the best golf experience we had this week (also played Espiche, Vale da Pinta, Santo Antonio). The golf course was in very good shape (both fairways and greens), the course is wide and offers fantastic views, almost like in a huge park with hills and water on 4 holes. Not too difficult for mid-handicappers. Friendly staff, good food selection, and a nice terrace with view on hole 18. Definitely worth playing. Second place for Santo Antonio. The other ok, but nothing special to play. Would definitely recommend Gramacho golf course.

Dave Friar2019-03-24
Very good

Richard Crawford2019-01-08
Very easy to book in, having used teetimes for the booking. Course in good condition and reasonably fast greens, though greens quite hard and difficult to get a ball to stop with a full shot in. Round took four and a half hours, which I expect is normal for a fuuly booked course of 4 balls, so wouldn't want to start after one' o'clock in January. Enjoyable holiday golf, not too difficult, but some challenging holes.

Lindsay Desmier2018-10-05
Really like this course. Like the other courses in the area, very busy but hardly ever a problem getting held up. In very good condition at the moment, improved a lot over the past few years

Neil Elliott2018-10-03
I love this course and have played it for years. Always enjoyable

Norrie Jamieson2018-06-14
This was our favourite course out of 4 that we played. Great, well maintained course with nothing too daunting except the water near the end although that was interesting. Some limitations on the buggy use on the fairways of the last few holes. Surrounding countryside more appealing and lovely facilities. Only thing to let it down was the sullen attitude at reception.

Colin Dixon2018-06-06
Excellent course with a great finishing hole. Played 3 times this year, first day greens not good, too many pitch marks left I repaired, but subsequent rounds the greens were far better. Will keep returning. Very helpful staff

Nicholas Georgevic2018-05-10
Excellent course, well maintained and pretty on the eye

Geoff Corton2016-07-30
Super course, excellent and easy booking in process.

Mr A Gray2019-07-05
Excellent service 3rd time I've used tee times twice booked 4 rounds from UK before holiday and this booked online in Portugal cheaper than at golf course. Thsnkbyou

Stephen Oliver2019-07-05
Course in good condition apart from greens which is to be expected in June. Course is very pleasant and a good course for all levels of golfer.

David stubbings2019-06-26
Nice course . Very tidy, greens very poor worst this week just hollow tined and sanded. Very busy with a lot of people waiting mostly due to poor starter. Had a lot of two ball and a single player chasing four ball games.

Frank Doherty2019-06-11
Had an enjoyable game of golf. Course was good.

Jean-Guy Hottiaux2019-06-08
Excellent golf course very well maintained. The course offers scenic views and some holes are challenging with speedy and curved greens. It’s the fifth time we âtre playing there and it’s always with a great pleasure. Staff is smiling and supporting.

Robert Willekens2019-06-06
Great Golf course!

Martin Brindley2019-06-05
Welcoming staff and course in good condition

W D Gibson2019-06-05
The coarse was in excellent condition and a pleasure to play.

Steve Ball2019-05-25
No problems whatsoever. Would definitely use again

Craig Frame?2019-05-21
Nice layout, decent condition, a bit of a walk without buggies

N Suffolk2019-05-17
The course was playing well and although a strong wind still managed to par half the holes.

Kim Bennett2019-05-17
Course was in great condition but given the temperatures it was unacceptable that the Buggy Bar was not out on the course and when the clubhouse was called they refused to arrange for it to come out. We have provided this feedback to pestana too

Odette2019-04-25
Great course and in very good condition

James J. Bunyan2019-04-11
Major problem with lady & gent in reception on Tuesday. They required booking voucher from Atlantico Apartmentos. We were not given them. Major embarrassment & long delay before getting buggies. Ì informed Tee Times.

Richard Oakley2019-04-07
Enjoyed course, but after wet round, sorry to be told that no towels available in showers.

Michael Graham2019-04-07
Of the 4 courses we played (Silves, Alto, Vale da Pinta and Gramacho), Gramacho the preferred course of all the group.

Martin Mapplebeck 2019-03-21
Really enjoyed the course although there are a lot of doglegs which is difficult if you don't know the course. Roberto deserves a special mention sorting out trolleys and starters. Played with two Dutch ladies who were a delight. Great greens and generally in very good condition throughout.

Dirk Heuzeroth2019-03-02
As goog as always.

John Ryan2019-02-06
Nice course. 17th needs better signage regarding the water

Dirk Heuzeroth2019-01-08
As good as always????

Max De Groot2018-11-29
fine course in good condition

Henk Van Derlit2018-11-11
Finishes our pleasant round of golf just before the rain. Gramacho is one of our favourite courses. Nothing to complain about. We leave now for Holland, but we expert tombe back half February. Kind. Regards. Henk van der Lit

Neil Southwell2018-11-02
Course good ,very slow and could not complete 18 holes ,also paired with players without handicaps hence made even slower .At these prices a bit poor

Lorna Dymock2018-10-29
Our Tee time was 13.12 and the pace of play was so slow we had to finish in darkness as the round took nearly 5 hours.The two groups in front of us were very very slow yet in front of them were two clear holes. I feel it was inadequately marshalled which was a shame as the course is lovely. and I really enjoyed the actual golf just not waiting to play almost every shot. Anyone playing behind us with Tee times up to 14.30 who had paid the full price would not have been able to complete their round in daylight.

Liam Kearney2018-10-17
Gramacho was a much better experience than last year when we were unable to finish before dark due to extremely slow play. This year play was much improved but still a 5 hour round. Despite being assured a ranger was in operation we did not see one at any time! The course was in good order and the clubhouse welcoming. Well improved but not just perfect yet.

Bill Robertson2018-10-15
Good as ever but massive number of seabirds congregate in places. Luckily we're holiday golfers so didn't mind when on two occasions they punched out golf balls!

Barry O'shea2018-10-12
Fine course in great condition

Gasche2018-10-09
It was e wonderful round in a great flight with perfect weather.

Neil Elliott2018-10-08
Very good course but the marshalling was very poor

Neil Wendel-Jones2018-10-07
Enjoyable but a very slow round of over 5 hours

Jim Hardman2018-10-03
Always enjoyable greens not just as good as last year but they were as good as it gets last year.

Conor kavanagh2018-09-30
Lovely manageable course

Jeremy Nesbitt2018-09-30
Course we’ll set out but let down by poor teeing areas.

Cheryl Myles2018-09-23
Second on the tee this morning, which meant getting up really early, but this meant we dictated the pace of play. Nice fairways and greens, easy enough to read the greens. Buggy bar came round which was nice and lovely to have inclusive buggies as the course is hilly in parts. Avery picturesque course and not too challenging. Nice to play at the start of a break to make you feel good about your golf. Just be aware the clubhouse is not open first thing, must open at about 7:30 or 8:00, which is a shame because we were looking forward to the breakfast before playing.

Andy Hennessy2018-09-22
Of All the Golf Courses in Pestana, I prefer Gramacho to any of them, played with 3 gentlemen today from Yorkshire England, without exception, we all enjoyed the day. If I had a criticism I would say the sand in some of the Bunkers.

John Halvey2018-09-21
Very nice course and pace of play was good

John Halvey2018-09-21
Excellent day.

Alistair Walker2018-09-20
Lovely course - have played before and it was better than if remembered. Excellent condition and enjoyable to play

Xavier Chauffleur2018-09-15
For some holes (13, 14, 17 if I remenber), two greens positions are possible and indicated (right or left). It will be nice if the location of these greens are clearly indicated on a map at the reception or by the starter. May be, one of the best prepared course I ever played.

CABROLIER2018-09-12
Perfect

Les Marshall2018-09-06
Very playable and enjoyable course , good service on cours an din restaurant, al in all good value resort

Brian Miller2018-08-30
Course was most enjoyable and was maintained to a high standard. Only adverse comment on this was that there was over watering in places. The reception was very efficient but the starter was rather uncommunicative and so we needed to work things out for ourselves. Bar/restaurant service was slow.

Greg Watson2018-08-17
Good condition, nice layout challenging off the black tees, enjoyable apart from the pace of play 5 hours :-(

Nigel oakes2018-08-09
Fantastic. Course Great bar’food. Friendly staff

Hans Ekmann2018-07-27
Don 't like courses with doublegreens.

Paul Mustoe 2018-07-25
Excellent. Very friendly and relaxed experience. Nice course. Interesting but playable.

Andy Bryant2018-07-20
Very friendly, good golf, millionaires golf in the afternoon

Mr Alan Cherry2018-07-10
Waiter took our order but after 25 minutes it hadn't arrived so we left. They had obviously forgotten about us. However this is the first time it has happened there and it still remains one of our favorite courses.

Castriota Pierluigi2018-07-03
Golf corse molto bello e molto curato, all'interno di un elegante contesto residenziale.

Will Hunter2018-06-23
The course was lovely but the greens were poor due to sanding. Very disappointed that there was no drinks buggy on the course for vital refreshments as it was parked at the club house.

william D Gibson2018-06-22
Excellent course well maintained

les jackson2018-06-07
club hire a bit expensive and no water or tees offered as in other courses

David Bridger2018-06-06
Friendly pro shop and bar staff. The starter was a little abrupt with our fourball which was a disappointment being first-time players. The course was well maincured and greens were fast but true. A typical resort course that lacks a little character but good value for money and I would play it again.

Mr Steven J Grant2018-06-06
always enjoy playing here

Philip Sharpe2018-06-05
Course was in good condition, greens were excellent. Staff very friendly as always and a good choice of menu. The only issue was the pace of play, always seems slow over at Gramacho with us having to wait on most shots.

Ann White2018-06-01
beautiful course, excellent staff

Eammon Ryan 2018-05-28
Good course and enjoyable experience

Aart-Jan Smit2018-05-22
It is a friendly short golf course. Beautifull as allways.

Peter Heinecke2018-05-08
A beautiful course

Paul Moore2018-05-03
Very busy so expect a 4hr+ round and to be playing as a 4 ball but still a good course to play. Quite a few dog legs and blind shots which keep you guessing. Greens have very few flat spots so putting is always good fun!

René Olthof2018-04-30
Nice and well maintained. Enough to think about for al players

Sean Desmond2018-04-30
Excellent golf course. In great condition. Very enjoyable game

ADRIAN FRASER JONES2018-04-30
Busy course but in very good condition

Richard Lewin2018-04-27
Our favourite golf course in the Algarve. It's quite forgiving but not unduly so. Enormous and quite tricky greens on some holes. Beautiful views. Good organisation. Our only criticism is that the practice facilities are a short drive away.

Fran Mackey2018-04-25
Really nice course

Mike Thompson2018-04-17
Given that Gramacho is part of the same complex as the Vale do Pinta course, the difference between the two is remarkable - the fairways and general outlook are much better at Gramacho. The bunkers, although lacking sand, were mostly playable after the rain, unlike those at Vale do Pinta. Also, getting away at 7.30am meant we were round in 3 hours, compared to the 5 hours it took previously with a later tee-off. A lovely course, friendly and helpful staff and good value for money at €70/18 holes.

S J Price2018-04-04
Excellent sevice with regard to the booking, however gramacho will put you with other golfers to make up 4 balls. They do not ask for handicap so you could be matched up with golfers that have very different abilities. The course is excellent and very well maintained, well worth a visit.

Tania Segers2018-04-01
Pleasant golf course. Nice shop but not so efficient desk for settling payments and reservations. Too many cooks in the kitchen.

Katharina Cugliari2018-03-28
We absolutely love Gramacho. The Pro shop was very helpful when we tried to change our tee times.

George Udcoff2018-02-18
Reservations excellently handled by Tee Times

Higgins2018-02-18
On time start and course in excellent condition

Barry Summerfield2018-01-18
We thoroughly enjoyed the course - a map of the 18 holes on the back of the score card would help to navigate (this applies to Silves and Vale Pinta) as well.

Marion Brosens2017-12-30
Lovely course in great condition. Greens are really fast and difficult.

Jemson Chris2017-12-04
My group of friends played Gramacho twice this week having played this course many times over the past five years. Everyone and I mean everyone loved the course. It was in extremely good condition, the greens were excellent and the overall view of the course was that it was excellent for players of various abilities. Not only would we all recommend the courses to anyone, we all ingtend to come back in the future to play it again. I cannotg say better than that.

Thijs Beetstra2017-11-09
Great golf course, beutiful weather. What else do we want?

A little too slow to enjoy not a favourite.

Andrew Ford2017-09-21
Great course, love the whole set up

Brian Smith2017-09-20
It is unfortunate that we had to be put with another couple to make up a 4 ball at Gramacho - I understand that courses are busy and want to make best use but it didn't appear that busy on the day that we played.

Paul Beard2017-09-14
Enjoyed the round

Trevor Kerr2017-09-12
good course but over subsrcibed on the day which led to slow play. Greens were in average condition

Claude Fatta2017-08-27
Tres beau golf

David Dawson2017-07-11
Greens had been recently sanded, but overall lovely course

Ray Lloyd2017-07-09
Lovely course but need to give this a miss in June due to course maintenance.

Sean Rynne2017-06-25
Beautiful course, will be back

Nigel Mapletoft2017-06-23
On the day we visited, it was rather busy. We had to wait at one tee, the 15th, I think, for 15 minutes for the green to be made available by the group ahead. The whole round took over 5 hours. Had it been quieter, the course would have been really enjoyable. As it was, we rated it as the worst out of the four we visited.

Jean-Guy HOTTIAUX2017-06-17
Excellent course a bit challenging.

John Wheatley2017-05-29
Course in beautiful condition though very busy indeed so a slow round. Weather gorgeous!

Dave Thompson2017-05-27
First time I have played it and cannot wait to return Great Course

Clive Goss2017-05-22

Fran Mackey2017-03-10
It was our last days golf on the trip and all the players were very impressed with the course and the club house

Paul Fitzsimmons2017-03-02
Excellent layout and well bunkered - greens difficult in terms of undulation and speed.

Doug Smith2016-12-18
Gramacho is set in a beautiful location. The course is very interesting, and needs good course management in order to score well. The recent heavy rains had an effect on the bunkers which still had casual water standing in them and the sand was compacted hard, in sone cases washed away. Having said that, the rest of the course was in good shape if soft in places, resulting in a few plugged balls. The greens were in great order, still quite quick and even. All in all a good experience .

Libor Stehno2016-11-16
very good course

Susan Crawford2016-11-13
Great course in great condition.

Daniel Kirwan2016-09-16
We play Gramacho every time we travel. Super golf course.

Malcolm MacDonald2016-09-16

Very well maintained! My favorite for this vacations. Good price value.

James Galbraith2016-06-17
VERY GOOD NO PROBLEMS

Rosemary Dobson2016-06-01
Enjoyed game. General condition of course poorer than expected - possibly due to recent weather conditions. Slightly disappointed in course as we had heard very good reports about it from a u ver of golfers both at home and in Portugal.

Jim Redmond2016-05-28
Excellent course, was dealt with very efficiently and would not hesitate in returning to play it again.

Derek Shortall2016-05-23
Good

Michaelis, Ulrich2016-05-11
Over-booked and not well organized. We had to wait 45 minutes before we could start also you had confirmed our tee time. No excuse ! Long waiting periods especially on Par 3 wholes.

Lindsay Desmier2016-04-19
Great course but can get a bit busy. Worth a visit though. Was in great condition when we played (April)

Good, interesting course with a smashing clubhouse

Derek Thomas2015-10-19
Very good

Lynne Grant2015-10-15
We thought the Gramacho course was in quite a poor condition.

Algarve Golf Society2011-09-07
Weather on the day could not have been any better with tee off time commencing at 08:00 till 12:00. The course was in glorious condition and was set up in a way to encourage high scoring with some of the yellow tees in a very forward positions. Gramacho has a wonderful finishing hole with the clubhouse perched close to the green and so was a great vantage spot to view from whilst enjoying the buffet lunch.
