Castro Marim Golf Course
Combination – Grouse & Guadiana
The Grouse is the newest of the three nine holes with the more open far-reaching inland hill views. Although it only opened in 2008 it is already nicely mature. It has rolling terrain with fewer trees than the other two courses.
The courses are teeming with wildlife including wild boar, birds and rabbits. Some lucky property owners have even spotted the elusive Iberian Lynx on The Grouse Course when playing early in the morning.
The Guadiana Course is a delight, set amongst attractive pine trees.
Fast and true greens, several of them elevated and protected by bunkers, inviting elevated tees and dogleg fairways carved out of canyons are features of the course.
Combination – Guadiana & Atlântico
Designed by Bristol-based Terry Murray around ten years ago, The Guadiana and Atlântico courses are the most mature of the three courses, with attractive pine trees lining the fairways.
The courses are teeming with wildlife, especially partridge in the winter months.
