The Portugal Golf Experience

Portugal's terrain makes it undoubtedly Southern Europe's crown jewel. Throw in the Algarve, perhaps golf's most popular region, and you have the perfect golf experience.  The resorts available in the Algarve, such as Quinta do Lago provide golfers with their favourite experience. It boasts three incredible courses that are a dream come true.

Similarly, Dom Pedro and Pestana are favourites among visitors. Top-tier courses and golden sand beaches are just a dance away from these resorts. The Algarve has something for everybody. Courses for those who consider themselves "pros" to the lumberjack that find the woods more than the fairways.

Best Places for a Portugal Golf Holiday

Have we mentioned the Algarve yet? It's the go-to destination because of its special coastal location, perfect Mediterranean weather, world-class courses, sublime culinary spots, and nightlife fit for a group outing. The South Coast of Portugal boasts all the essential ingredients.

Top Reasons To Book Golf Holidays in Portugal

Courses

You're never far from a tournament-hosting course or an internationally recognised resort. Whether you stay close to Albufeira, Faro, or Lagos, you'll experience the thrills and wonders of Europe's best golf destination.

Nightlife

Portugal boasts a diverse range of nightlife suitable for everybody. Smaller fishing towns on the south coast offer an authentic culinary representation with tapas and fish dishes for a sophisticated evening.

Other locations such as Albufeira are for those that enjoy lively atmospheres with nightclubs open until the early hours of the morning. Get your best gear on and have a Super Bock!

Restaurant

Every restaurant prides itself on serving some of the best food available in Mediterranean Europe. From fresh fish dishes most likely caught in the local harbour to Piri Piri chicken, there's something for everybody to experience the culinary classics of Portugal. Can't forget the pastel de nata, can we?

Often located in squares or harbour-sides, these restaurants offer a classic al-fresco dining experience you just can't replicate in England.

Cities

Despite its prestigious status as Europe's best golf holiday location, many of the towns and cities are still growing in popularity. From Vilamoura to Faro or Portimao, to northern cities such as Braga, each town is buzzing with golf enthusiasts raring to get stuck in.

Tips for Golf Holidays in Portugal

Weather

If warm weather is your priority, then Portugal should be. Particularly in the Algarve, the sun is the mainstay year-round, meaning it's perfect during any time of year. Throughout the winter, it's still mild and hardly rains. A perfect escape from the UK's bleak months if you fancy winter sun golf.

Golf Courses

Make no mistake about it, premium golf courses are dotted all over. But if we had to choose, it's the Quinto do Lago resort for us. It's hard to beat the luxurious facilities and championship rounds at this hot spot. A true bucket-lister. 

Best Time of the Year

In general, any month is the best time of year considering the weather and well-rounded golf culture of Portugal. If, however, you want Portugal at its peak, May, September, and October are the liveliest. Every course will be jam-packed with golf fanatics from around the world because it's golf in its element.

FAQ

Portugal is a golfer's paradise. It's accessible 365 days a year, so you can play golf every single day. Fancy a summer golf holiday? It's sorted. Fancy some winter sun? Portugal has you covered.

There are around 75 golf courses scattered across Portugal, with the famous Algarve owning nearly half of these. Whether you want inland loops or you're looking for a coastal gem, there's something for everybody's preferences.

No matter where you go, you can never be certain that a handicap isn't required. If you don't have a handicap certificate, it's important to get this sorted at your local club. Many top loops demand the proof as course etiquette. Always pack it. Clubs have the right to refuse entrance if you don't have handicap proof.

During peak season, the green fees are highest. If you're looking to play golf on a budget, research booking the winter months instead. That way, the green fees will drop and often many deals are available.

Madeira is a welcoming region of Portugal just short of the Northwest African coast. The island has great golfing facilities, available for all handicap levels and great accommodation. It's somewhat of a hidden gem in Portugal for golf admirers.
