One of the unique features of the course is simply what’s not there! The beautiful rolling terrain, native vegetation, lakes, streams and flowers that line our fairways are only bordered by unspoiled countryside and local vineyards! No towering hotels or condominium projects. No villas lining the fairways. Nothing but the natural beauty of the Algarve framed by the majestic Monchique Mountains in the distance.
With 5862 meters (6411 yards) from the back tees, this is a strategic layout that demands careful thought and shot planning rather than brute force to get the best from your round. The rolling hills and frequent doglegs mean you’ll need to work the ball both ways.
And from the moment you step out on the tee box, you’ll experience a sense of awe at the beauty of the layout before you. Tree-lined fairways are both tight and forgiving. From the fairways, the course at Espiche requires a deft touch with your short game. Bunkers guard most greens while the greens themselves are large and undulating, demanding a soft hand with the putter. Espiche is a challenging yet fun layout: a shot-maker’s course where you’ll enjoy an amazing variety of holes not found on most courses.
