Espiche Golf in the western Algarve has been awarded a top golfing award for its clubhouse.

Four judges, with backgrounds in architecture, design and golf, ranked Espiche Golf Clubhouse as being third in the world in the New Construction category.


The entries for the Clubhouse of the Year awards were judged on three factors; efficiency, aesthetics and overall design concept, with Espiche Golf excelling in all areas and being recognised for the innovative, sustainable and creative design of the Clubhouse which opened in May 2014.


Judge Frank Benzakour said of Espiche Golf Clubhouse: “What a spectacular design. Modern, clean lines and gorgeous views. This design is a few years ahead of its time”.

Judge Kenneth Hart added: “It’s a small scale gem. Designed with delicate balance of an upper level that is enclosed in glass and a lower level that is enclosed with stone”.


The Espiche Golf Clubhouse was designed by architect Nadine Berger, drawing upon the club ethos of preservation, conservation and innovation, with every element being carefully considered to balance the unique elements of the natural environment, while constantly developing for the future.


Original stones taken from the site were combined with cutting edge technology and renewable energy solutions to create a sustainable, striking and practical clubhouse to be enjoyed by members and guests throughout the year.


Luis Rocha, General Manager for Espiche Golf said: “We are enormously proud to have been recognised with such a prestigious award for our Clubhouse. At Espiche Golf we are constantly working to provide golfers with a new perspective on the game and the clubhouse is a key element of this”.


Espiche Golf is open to members and guests, offering a unique and challenging course set above a natural aquifer, combined with an award-winning clubhouse.
