Quinta do Gramacho was designed by the North-American Ronald Fream and Nick Price and is adjacent to the Vale da Pinta course. It is part of the Pestana Golf Resort situated in the heart of Algarve, and close to the fishing village of Carvoeiro, some 60 kilometers from Faro Airport.

The Gramacho Course is unique with 27 greens being the only one of its type of design on the continent of Europe, it is one of only a few courses in the world with 18 sets of tees and 27 greens but only 18 fairways.

As with the Pinta Course, the preparation and condition is at tournament standard year round. Holes 1 through 4 and 14 through 18 have two greens which may change your game plan depending on which greens are in play The ondulating terrain is liberally dotted with carob, fig, palm, almond and olive trees, some of which are more than 600 years old.
The use of existing features of the land, outcrops of rock, dry stone walls, fig, almond, carob and olive trees, have been augmented by well positioned bunkers and lakes. These hazards, combined with the shaping of the fairways and greens, have produced a wonderful array of challenging but fair golf holes. From the first tee shot to then pitch to the final green, the player must not only strike the ball and putt well, but also utilize the best strategy, to produce a good score. Experienced golfers will certainly acknowledge that they played a very fine golf course with a testing par of 71 and more than sufficient length at 6107 metres.

While designing and constructing the golf course Pinta and Gramacho, Ron Fream and Nick Price, did the impossible, they combined the hilly picturesque course with the artistic fairways and used the ancient olive trees, some 600 years old, all over the courses.
