Espiche Golf Club Espiche Golf Club

Host Golf Course - Espiche Golf Cup May 2019

ESPICHE GOLF TAKES TOP INTERNATIONAL AWARD Espiche Golf is the only golf club outside of the US to be recognised as a Clubhouse of the Year 2014 by the prestigious Golf Inc. publication.

A new addition to the Algarve golf scene. A great opener to your golf holiday in Portugal and now with a new driving range and short game area available in conjunction with Espiche Golf Professional, Ethan Shaw and Steven Bainbridge of Elite Golf Academies.

This gently undulating 18 hole par 72 course blends into the Algarve landscape. Its lakes, streams and indigenous planting add to the enrichment and biodiversity of the area. The aspects are exceptional, surrounded by open countryside and vineyards with views to the Monchique Mountains in the distance. The close proximity to Luz and Lagos offers a very special location.

The course uses innovative grass technology making this one of the most ecologically advanced courses in Europe.

A full range of facilities will be available at Espiche Golf as well as neighbouring Espiche Golf Village. At the neighbouring Espiche Golf Village villas will be available for sale and rental plus there is a plot for a 5 star hotel and sports centre.

Espiche Golf takes an exceptional responsibility in the way it carries out its course maintenance with a history of environmental research and is committment to an ongoing process for sustainability. This is a monitored course on an environmental program linked to the University of Algarve and various departments within The Commission of Co-ordination of Algarve "C.C.D.R.A". The land on which the course is built is classified as an Ecological Reserve.

The spectacular and unique club house design could not be in a better location. It nestles in a hillside at the centre of this stunning and gently undulating golf course. It gives the visitor delightful panoramic views to all sides of the golf course and surrounding landscape. From its' windows and terraces 360 degree views serve to enchant the player and visitor alike.

The Club House has been built into the hillside, integrated into the existing landscape. It is built on the site of an old Algarvian farm house ruin. To maintain its' sense of history the stone from the original building has been used in the lower walls of the outer structure.

The Club House has terraces and lounges on two levels, a restaurant and bar area, inner patio garden, changing rooms and reception area. Buggies are available and are stored below the main building.

In summer time the course is a vivid shade of green while in mid winter it goes a browner green. This is because it lays dormant during the season of maximum rain fall when the temperatures are lower. The grass changes it's colour but not it's playability. By not needing to be fertilized or watered during the winter season the grasses on the fairways act in harmony with the existing landscape by helping to reduce run off, stop erosion, and in the sustainability and replenishment of the aquifer. The grass on the greens is Paspalum and elsewhere, including the fairways Bermuda grass has been established. This ensures a playable sustainable course that is environmentally compatible and enriching to the existing Western Algarvian Mediterranean landscape.

About Golf de la Luz

Golf de la Luz was incorporated in February 2004 following a brief golfing holiday in the Costa de la Luz (Huelva region) in late 2003 where an opportunity arose to develop a destination-specific golf travel company for that region in particular. In the years since then we have grown to become the leading golf travel specialist to the Costa de la Luz in addition to offering golf holidays in other regions of Spain, Portugal and Turkey.
