Espiche Golf is much more than just a round of golf, it’s an eco-resort that seamlessly integrates with the natural environment. The 18-hole, par 72 course is located within a nature reserve and just ten minutes from Lagos, Algarve. The course was designed with preservation, conservation, and innovation in mind, and the indigenous flora and fauna have been carefully preserved to maintain the natural beauty of the area.
The course offers a true challenge for golfers of all levels, with unspoilt undulating countryside and carefully placed greens and fairways. The layout of the course is designed to balance the needs of the golfer and the environment, with indigenous planting throughout the course creating a beautiful backdrop and challenging obstacles.
The course is 5862 meters (6411) yards from the back tees, and players will need a deft touch on the short game to navigate the bunkers and large, undulating greens. Each hole poses a new challenge, with a variety of layouts that push players to take risks and make the most of their golfing skills.
The par five 1st hole drops 80 feet from the tee, providing a taste of the unique style of golf at Espiche Golf. The 3rd hole provides the sternest test on the front nine, at 409 meters uphill all the way, while the short 7th and 8th holes offer birdie opportunities.
The par five 10th hole is one of the finest in all of the Algarve golf courses, challenging players to navigate the progressively tighter fairway as they approach the green. Espiche Golf is a true shot-maker’s course, where players are rewarded for their skills and strategic judgment of the course.
