Portuguese Golf Holidays Golf Holiday Areas

Introducing Portuguese Golf Holidays...

Fantastic beaches, beautiful countryside, friendly people and an enviable position on the Atlantic coast offering over 300 days of sunshine per year have long made Portugal a top holiday destination for UK holiday makers.

Add in a range of top class golf courses designed by the likes of Sir Henry Cotton, Sir Nick Faldo, Cabell B. Robinson, Jack Nicklaus, and a host of other world class designers, and Portugal becomes not just a top holiday destination but also the destination of choice for people seeking European Golfing Holidays.

 

Golf holidays in Portugal offer an experience that is hard to match across the rest of Europe. A superb range of top quality golf courses, many offering panoramic views across stunning valleys, mountains and beautiful coastline, make for a memorable golf holiday experience. Whilst sunshine, beaches, bars, restaurants and friendly people make for a memorable holiday experience.

 

Broadly speaking Golf Holidays in Portugal can be split between the Algarve and the Silver Coast.

 

Golf Holidays Algarve:

 

Generally when people talk of Golf Holidays in Portugal they really mean Golf Holidays Algarve and for good reason. 

 

The Algarve comprises 100 miles of beautiful coastline stretching along the southern edge of Portugal where fantastic beaches and small rocky coves are interspersed with a few large towns (like the beautiful ancient Roman & Moorish City of Tavira) and numerous small holiday villages.

 

The Algarve is home to some of Europe’s best known holiday resort complexes. Resorts which offer top class golf courses in addition to tennis, cycling, swimming pools, beaches, bars & restaurants. Iconic names like Vilamoura, Vale de Lobo, Quinta do Lago, Parque da Floresta, Amendoeira, Quinta da Ria, Benamor, the list of holiday resorts goes on and on – all built not just for.‘golfing holidays’ but for holidays in general.

 

Alternatively, if you want to stay somewhere with more ‘buzz’, the coastal towns & villages are never more than a short drive from one or more superb golf courses and offer a wide variety of holiday accommodation, bars, restaurants and busy nightlife.          

 

Golf Holidays Silver Coast:

 

The ‘Silver Coast’ is the name given to 100 miles of beautiful coastline north of Lisbon. A rugged coastline studded with small towns and villages, backed by green, rolling countryside, dotted with ancient Hunting Lodges and Royal Palaces and with an easy air of sophistication emanating from Lisbon itself.

 

As well as being a beautiful, largely unspoilt area, the Silver Coast offers as many top class golf courses as the Algarve - Oitavos, the Aroeira golf courses and of course Praia del Rey (rated one of the Best Course in Europe by Golf World Magazine) to name but a few.

 

The Silver Coast offers fantastic golfing holidays - friendly people, bars, beaches, restaurants, nightlife and fantastic golf all at prices noticeably less than those found on the Algarve.

 

When to go:

 

Golf Holidays in Portugal are a year round affair with some minor variations between the Algarve and The Silver Coast.

 

The Algarve, being further south, offers mild winters, warm Spring & Autumn periods and hot summer months. With the peak season for golfing holidays stretching from October through to May with the warm sunny days and cool nights offering perfect conditions for golf holidays and other leisure activities.  

 

On the Silver Coast the winter months are a few degrees cooler than the Algarve and with a higher chance of rain (keeping the area green and fresh looking). As a consequence the peak season for Golfing Holidays on the Silver Coast is September to November and February to May – when the days are generally dry and sunny and the chance of rain diminished.
