Nick Price, renowned golfer and former world number one, has teamed up with the prestigious golf course architect, Ronald Fream to create the Pestana Gramacho. With 18 holes, 27 greens, and several tee points, players can enjoy the same course several times, always with different challenges.









Recognised as an excellent course for holding championships at the highest level, the Pestana Gramacho golf course has several times hosted the qualifying stages of the European Seniors Tour and also the Ladies European Tour. However it can also be enjoyed by players with a higher handicap.

As well as doing an excellent job in the technical design of the course, Ronald and Nick have managed to blend in perfectly with the natural landscape, preserving the existing flora, particularly the carob trees, some of which are hundreds of years old. The effect is a wonderful walk in nature that you won’t want to miss.
