Check out our latest offers in Europe's number one golf destination, The Algarve.


The European country boasts a great range of fantastic golf courses and hotels that make for the ideal golfing holiday. Located only a short flight from the UK, golfing breaks in Portugal are ideal for those looking for a short stay or even something longer. The southern area of Portugal offers a Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters. Even the northern area of the country, especially the coast which is warmed by the Gulf Stream, can have warm summers and mild winters.

The Lisbon coast is an ideal destination for a short break for the discerning British golfer. Easily accessible and relatively quiet, the temperatures can be slightly cooler than that of the south coast but are still very mild, even during the winter months. There are over 20 quality courses to choose from and each of them are within an hour’s drive of the thriving capital city, Lisbon. Two of the best courses that the Lisbon coast has to offer are Praia D'El Rey and Oitavos Dunes. Both of these tremendous courses offer a mix of holes, within a lovely landscape.

Golf Tours in the Southern Areas 

Moving further south, one of the most popular places for golf holidays is the Algarve. Here, summers are dry and sunny with over 12 hours of sunshine each day which continues throughout the winter months. Average daily temperatures can reach anything between 18-20 degrees. With at least 35 different golfing venues, the Algarve is home to some of Portugal's very best courses. With a choice of courses on the coast or further inland, towards the mountains, the Algarve is also ideal for both short golf breaks and longer golfing holidays.

World class courses such as the San Lorenzo sit alongside the Atlantic and are consistently ranked as one of the best courses in the world.  Moving further inland and nestled nicely amongst the foothills of the Eastern Algarve, is Monte Rei Golf Club. A Jack Nicklaus signature course, Monte Rei is comfortably one of, if not the best course in the Algarve region.

Vilamoura is a popular location in the Algarve and has become famous due to its quality courses. It is not an easy task trying to pick an individual course out for special attention but The Old Course definitely deserves a mention. A perfectly maintained course, every visitor to the Vilamoura area should treat themselves to a round on The Old Course.

Located within a 3-hour flight from the UK, there is every reason to indulge in a short break or long stay golf holiday. A great climate all year round, superb hotels, along with Portuguese culture and huge range of quality courses combine to make an ideal place for the discerning golfer, who is searching for the perfect getaway.
