Portugal has everything you could wish for on a golfing holiday. With world famous championship golf courses and a beautiful winter climate, the Algarve and Lisbon coasts are perfect for UK golfers who come here to escape the cold winter weather and rain-soaked golf courses at home to enjoy a golf break in the sun. Although Costa de La Luz is a part of Spain it is next to the Algarve and offers some great golf courses.
Golf Holidays in the Algarve
Famous for its scenery, Portugal's southern coast is one hundred miles long with beautiful beaches washed by deep blue Atlantic waters and sheltered by honey-coloured cliffs that are rich in sunshine, history and charm. The Algarve has a golf holiday resort to suit the tastes of every golfer. Vilamoura is a big favourite with many award winning resorts, many championship courses, excellent hotels and plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance.
Golf Breaks in Lisbon
With every year that passes, the coastal area surrounding the cosmopolitan and sophisticated city of Lisbon is growing in popularity as a golfing holiday venue, and it's not too hard to figure out why. The Lisbon area is filled with amazing golf resorts and a number of excellent golf courses. Stretching from Obidos in the North with Praia del Rey, West Cliffs and Royal Obidos, passing through the popular towns of Cascais and Estoril where you will find some great courses within easy reach of your hotel, Oitavos Dunes and Penha Longa are a must play for any golf tour in this area. In the South you will find Sesimbra which is more of a beach town with courses such as Troia, Aroeira and Quinta do Peru within 25 minutes.
The big bonus is that the courses here are much quieter than those in the Algarve and the Costa del Sol, and the golf in this area offers great value for money. The climate is slightly cooler than the Algarve during the winter months, but in autumn, spring and early summer the weather is great for golfing.
Golfing Breaks in the Costa de la Luz
Just over the border in Spain, the golf courses and hotels of the Costa de La Luz are within easy reach of Faro airport, which is why we include this area in our Algarve offering. Golfers staying in this area have a great choice of world class courses both in Spain and the Eastern Algarve for an all inclusive golf holiday.
