eco-friendly golf


Located outside the beautiful town of Lagos, just minutes from the ocean in the picturesque and authentic Western Algarve, Espiche is a spectacular and ecologically-friendly golf course where nature abounds.

Our challenging 18-hole, par 72 course spreads across superb rolling terrain that blends seamlessly into the Algarve landscape. Its lakes, streams and indigenous plantings enhance and enrich the biodiversity of the area. The course is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, trading the typical Portuguese golf experience of hotels and high rises for views of local vineyards and the Monchique Mountains in the distance. 5862 meters (6411 yards) from the back tees, tight but forgiving fairways, and a wide variety of holes make the course enjoyable for the casual and serious golfer alike.

For those who want to sharpen up their game, our range offers grass tees. Conveniently located near the main entrance to the course, it features a large turf hitting area and quality range balls. Mature trees and native vegetation create the feeling of actually playing a course, thereby improving the quality of your practice.

Our newly completed clubhouse provides panoramic views across the entire course and surrounding terrain. Built into the hillside on the site of an old Algarvian farm house, it is beautifully integrated into the existing landscape.

Stone from the original building has been used in the lower walls of the outer structure to maintain the sense of history. Architect Nadine Berger’s unique and striking design provides terraces and lounges on two levels, a stunning restaurant and bar area, an inner patio garden, changing rooms, a golf shop and reception area. It is the perfect place to relax after a great round, and is the ideal location for weddings, parties, banquets and celebrations of all kinds.
