The Algarve Golf Holidays

It does not get much better than an Algarve golf holiday. With championship golf courses galore surrounding the popular golfers' resort of Vilamoura and a huge selection of courses and hotels dotted throughout the Algarve.

From the golf-rich regions of the Central Algarve including Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura to the stunning Tavira in the East along with Alvor and Lagos in the West. There is a selection of resorts, hotels and golf courses to suit everyone.

Vilamoura has been the golf break capital of Europe for many years and with numerous championship golf courses within a short shuttle distance from your hotel, great restaurants, busy bars and stunning marina - it is easy to see why!

The Algarve has some hidden gems to explore and we highly recommend staying in the Eastern Algarve where the scenery is spectacular, it is more of an authentic Portuguese experience, the golf courses excellent and real value for money too.

Lagos in the Western Algarve is another favourite of ours, a traditional cobbled street seaside town with real character and great for combining a golf and beach break all in one. From Lagos, you can play a selection of great golf courses including Palmares, Boavista whilst not being far from Vilamoura if wishing to sample golf in this area.

If looking to stay and play at a golf resort where you just need to walk onto the first tee after breakfast then our recommendations include the Penina Golf Resort with 18 hole Championship course onsite, Pestana Vila Sol with 27 holes onsite, magnificent Monte Rei with Jack Nicklaus signature design on your doorstep or the all inclusive Robinson Club with the 36 holes at Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima onsite.

The golf courses are second to none and with stunning championship pedigree including Quinta do Lago North, Monte Rei, Palmares, Vale do Lobo Royal, Dom Pedro Victoria, Dom Pedro Old and San Lorenzo to mention a few….the multi award-winning golf holidays in the Algarve are unbeatable.

Why choose the Algarve for a golf holiday?

From the most popular resorts and golf courses to the little hidden gems, there really is something to suit all tastes and golfing abilities in the Algarve.

With idyllic weather, brilliant hotels and an abundance of fantastic golf courses, the Algarve is an excellent choice for a golf holiday. For the golfing purist, there are lots of courses that can be ticked off your list and if you are a beginner, there are some excellent academy courses too, especially Penina.
 

Vilamoura Golf Holidays

Vilamoura in Central Algarve is the iconic destination for golf holidays in Portugal with many guests returning year after year. The resort enjoys excellent hotels, top-quality golf and a marina with fantastic bars and restaurants. Golf courses are outstanding – from the Old and Victoria courses to the Vale Do Lobo duo of Ocean and Royal – there are so many championship courses here. Only 15 minutes away is the exclusive Vale Do Lobo area where you can stay in luxury at Dona Filipa and play San Lorenzo. Drive just 5 minutes further to Quinta Do Lago which hosts the North, South and Laranjal courses. This area is a favourite of many famous celebrities!

Western Algarve Golf Holidays

The Western Algarve is a perfect hybrid of Vilamoura and the Eastern Algarve. The towns of Alvor and Lagos are the main resorts that offer a more relaxed, authentic experience. The golf courses in the area are built around the natural landscapes and provide some very quirky holes; Palmares, Boavista and  Amendoeira Faldo & OConnor are fantastic and have some of the best par 3’s you’ll play. For those who wish to capture Portugal at its finest and play some excellent golf, Western Algarve is for you.
 

Eastern Algarve Golf Holidays

The Eastern Algarve is much quieter than Vilamoura and the West. The town of Tavira is fantastic for a true Portuguese experience with excellent courses nearby including Quinta De Cima and Quinta Da Ria. Not far from Tavira is Monte Rei, said to be the best golf resort in Portugal – and arguably Europe! The 18 hole championship course is certainly one for the bucket list and they are working on another 18 holes which will make it even more attractive. We recommend staying in one of the outstanding Monte Rei villas.
 

Getting There

How long are flights from UK to Faro?

Flights are approximately 3 hours from the UK. There are many flights to Faro with a great choice of early morning flights should you wish to head straight to the golf course on arrival or late afternoon departures to allow a round on your last day, we can arrange tee-times and flights to suit you. It’s ideal for group trips too if members are flying from various airports. With so many routes and multiple flights per day, it's easy to get everyone together around the same time so that nobody misses out on the fun!
If you want to add a little luxury, why not fly business class with British Airways from London airports.

Airport Transfers

What to expect upon arrival

We offer private transfers from the airport to your hotel. Our ground handlers in Portugal are fantastic and will meet you at the airport and look after you throughout your stay. All transfer vehicles are fully air-conditioned and available for small and large groups.

If you are planning on driving from the airport or travelling around during your stay, we can arrange car hire for you; always on a premium package which ensures zero excess and zero deposit for you – no hidden costs!
 

Best Golfing Weather

Golfing in the Algarve - Weather Guide

Temperatures in the Algarve are excellent year-round. Warm sunshine coupled with the fresh sea breeze ensures you don’t overheat while golfing, especially during the hottest months of late June to August. We would recommend visiting between March through to mid-June and September - October when temperatures are slightly cooler and better suited to playing golf. Visit the Algarve off-season when temperatures are cooler but still perfect for golf and you'll get the best value for money and quieter courses. November to February is the best time to make the most of the great golf deals.  We would recommend taking a jumper for evenings though as it does cool down quickly! 
 

Top Tips when golfing in the Algarve

Play a Championship Course

We’d always recommend finishing your trip on a Championship quality course. Take a day-trip to Monte Rei and it will be unforgettable. You get a personalised bag-tag which is something to show off next time you are at your local golf club.

View Monte Rei Golf Club
Explore the Resort

Take a day away from golf and explore the local beaches and towns of the Algarve; getting some well-earned rest should mean that you play well the next day although GolfKings do not guarantee this!

Enjoy a day on one of the outstanding beaches, explore historical villages or head to a bustling marina for a wander.

Courses and Buggies

As buggies are not available to be pre-booked on all golf courses in the Algarve, we recommend that you chat to us about your preferred courses as we can advise how walkable they are having played on many of them.
