Gramacho Course - Carvoeiro
The Former No1 player Nick Price has teamed up with the well known golf course architect Ronald Fream to create a uniquely designed 18 hole course with 27 varied greens. Golfers can play the same course several times with different greens and new challenges. The design technique has positioned the greens and protective bunkers so that an 18 hole round is a genuine challenge. The positioning of the tee markers helps to increase this variety still further. As in the case of the neighbouring Pinto Course this course is maintained at tournament standard all the year round. Although the course is designed in the style of Nick Price, the wonderful characteristics remain on the site from the boulder outcrops and dry stone walling to the fig, carob and olive trees. These have been complemented by artfully positioned lakes and bunkers. These hazards combined with the design of the greens and fairways result in a challenging but attractive course. At the end of the round experienced golfers will be able to confirm that they have played a great course.

Vale da Pinta golf course
Architect Ronald Fream has used the natural valleys and hillocks to great effect with nearly all of the century-old olive trees preserved.

Deep greens are protected by 59 bunkers and five sets of tees. For each hole allow for different skill levels.

The beautiful third is a dog-leg left, set out from the raised tee. Those trying to cut corners through trees and bunkers will find themselves faced with a treacherous split level green.

Jane Barker, 10-Jul-2011

We were delighted with all aspects of Villa Plus - the villas are extremely well appointed and well maintained. We had a problem with the washing machine which was sorted almost immediately with the delivery of a new machine! The Villa Plus rep (sorry don;t know her name) was lovely. The best villa company that we have dealt with after some 25 years of villa holidays.
