5. Unique Attractions for Golfers and Non-Golfers Alike
Portugal is unlike any other golfing destination. The quality of the courses speak for themselves, but that’s not all that is on offer. Portugal also has:
- Amazing beaches, you’re not going to spend every moment of your trip on the golf course so why not pop to the beach. Imagine playing a round of golf, then taking a stroll down to the beach to enjoy the sunset.
- Friendly locals, much of the income, particularly in the Algarve, is derived from tourism. As a result, locals are friendly and helpful, going out of their way to assist tourists. The same applies to the golf clubs themselves, many of whom are used to having regular overseas clients.
Planning the Perfect Golf Holiday in Portugal
Golf courses in the Algarve continue to attract golfers from all around the world seeking sun, fun and excellent golfing conditions. If you’re wanting to plan your own golf holiday in Portugal, there are a couple of things to keep in mind to ensure that it is a success.
Decide What You Want
Think about the type of trip that you want. Ask yourself a couple of questions – should it be a mix of golf and relaxing? Who do you want to travel with? And when do you want to go? These will have an important bearing on the type of trip that you plan. For many, making time for beach days and to enjoy the Portuguese history and culture is a priority, but it might not be for you. The same goes for who you choose to travel with, maybe you just want to travel with your partner, or a group of your own friends who golf, or maybe you would like to join an organised tour.
If you’re planning to travel in peak times (anytime from late Spring until Autumn) it’s important to plan in advance. Tee times at many of the country’s top courses are in demand and you don’t want a lack of preparation to prevent you from enjoying the best that Portugal has to offer.
