Courses of an intermediate level of difficulty, designed by renowned landscape architects and set in fantastic landscapes have ensured the Algarve region has become a favourite golfing destination.
For a packed week, begin by choosing your course. Try the Ocean de Vale de Lobo, with its rolling fairways dotted with knots of pine, olive and eucalyptus. Or the Quinta do Lago Sul course ranked by the Golf World magazine as the 28th best course in Europe and designed to allow different strategies for attacking the green. There is also the Millennium, located close by the well-known Vilamoura resort, with its fairways and greens broad enough to allow the occasional slip.
As regards accommodation, the quality resorts of Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo or Vilamoura are certain to meet whatever your requirements.
And after the golf, or for members of your party who don’t play, there are so many alternatives on offer, for example, visit the colourful market in Loulé, marina of Vilamoura or take in the history of Faro.
