When it comes to exploring some of the best golf courses in the Algarve, Faro is a fantastic place to start. Fly into the Algarve's main airport at Faro and choose from several local resorts and golf courses. Aside from golf, you can explore Faro's historical walled city, which is home to cathedrals, winding cobblestone streets, and Faro Marina. We recommend that Faro is part of your holiday as a day trip. There are several resorts further down the coast which offer more to the golf traveller.
The Vale do Lobo Ocean Course is made up of two of the original 9-hole golf courses in the Algarve designed by Sir Henry Cotton. Both feature undulating fairways running alongside the nature reserve, before crossing down towards the Ocean. Before leading gently down to the shores of the Atlantic.
The Vale do Lobo Royal Course is located at the centre of the community and is well maintained. The fairways, tee-boxes, and greens are kept in excellent shape all year. The fairways are gently undulating and bordered by pine trees, lakes, and wildflowers for a lovely backdrop.
Three championship courses, as well as picturesque settings that will undoubtedly entice any golfer, are on offer at this high-quality resort. Laranjal Golf Course, Quinta North, and Quinta South are three excellent options; we suggest them all.
The town is famous for its colourful cobbled streets and traditional Portuguese architecture, which can be seen in the ornate cathedrals and churches throughout the city centre. The historic town walls are also well worth a visit if you have time to spare.
In addition to its famous golf courses, Faro is a great place to visit if you enjoy other outdoor pursuits. For example, the area around Faro is renowned for its surfing beaches.
