Golf in Algarve - Portugal

Golfing Breaks in the Algarve

The Algarve, Portugal's southern coast, one hundred miles long, with beautiful beaches washed by clean Atlantic waters is the ideal location for great golf holidays, with a host of new golf courses opened in the last couple of years and resorts to suit the tastes of every golfer.

Vilamoura is a big favourite for an Algarve golf holiday, because of the close proximity of 6 great courses and the excellent choice of bars and restaurants within walking distance of the great value hotels.

The Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago estates offer a choice of top class hotels, villas and apartments set in a beautiful area and surrounded by eight of the finest golf courses in the Algarve.

Another great Algarve golfing holiday area is just to the east of Faro in the resorts of Tavira and Monte Gordo. There are now 5 first class courses to choose from when staying in this area: Quinta da Ria, Quinta de Cima, Castro Marim, Benamor and Quinta do Vale. It is also possible to cross over into Spain and play the excellent Costa Esuri, Islantilla, El Rompido and Monacilla courses - all well within easy driving distance.

Albufeira is another firm favourite with British golfers. This popular resort has an abundance of nightlife and is within 15 minutes drive time from the Vilamoura courses.The courses of Salgados, Morgado and Alamos are also within easy reach

A little further west we come to the smaller resort of Carvoeiro and the Tivoli Carvoeiro Hotel set in a magnificent clifftop location. Alvor is another unspoiled resort with 3 great hotels in a wonderful setting. Close by is the Meridien Penina Hotel and its famous championship course.

The historic town of Lagos and the delightful village of Praia da Luz , are the most westerly resorts we feature. Both are ideally placed for playing the popular Palmares course, Parque da Floresta and the excellent Boavista course
