Silver Coast for fantastic Golf Holidays and Golf Breaks



There is more to Golf Holidays in Portugal than the Algarve…  

 

The Silver Coast (the coastal area around Lisbon) is easy to get to with numerous airlines offering a range of flights to Lisbon and offers as many top class courses as the Algarve, as many options on bars, restaurants and nightlife and beaches which are arguably better, all in an area of outstanding beauty, culture and sophistication and all offered at prices less than those generally to be found on the Algarve.

 

The golf…

 

The Silver Coast offers a range of golf courses to suit every requirement and includes some truly top class golf courses. The pick of the bunch are the Robert Trent Jones designed Quinta da Marinha,  Oitavos Dunes (ranked in the World Top 100 by GOLF Magazine), Penha Longa (set in the grounds of an ancient monastery and ranked within the Top 30 Courses in Europe), Praia del Rey (set on the coast and winner of Golf Resort of the Year 2007), the fantastic Aroeira I and Aroeira II courses and Quinta de Peru (ranked within the Top 10 Courses in Portugal by European Golf Magazine). Superb courses all generally less crowded and cheaper than comparable courses on the Algarve.

Other things to do…

 

Off the course the Silver Coast offers plenty to see and do. Sintra with its royal connections is simply beautiful. The beaches are some of the best in Europe. Cascais and Estoril are popular spots providing a wide range of bars, restaurants, nightlife and even a casino. Lisbon city centre can be easily reached by car or train and the surrounding countryside is, simply, stunning.


In summary…

Championship golf courses, unspoilt countryside, excellent beaches and a lively night-life adds up to the ultimate golf holiday and although the weather is colder in the winter than the Algarve, it often boasts clearer skies than further South and accordingly better golfing weather. In the shoulder season which includes September, October, April, May and June the region is not expensive and the weather is absolutely ideal and mid week the golf courses are unbelievably quiet.
