Choose from a selection of golf holidays in Portugal – Europe’s premier golf destination
Portugal is one of Europe’s top golf destinations, with world-class courses, fine cuisine, beautiful scenery and plenty of culture right on your doorstep. From the coastal courses in Cascais and Lisbon to the popular destinations in the Algarve, golf in Portugal offers good weather all year round and a staggering choice of courses.
With many top golf courses, Portugal is one of the most popular golf destinations in Europe. Its popularity has a lot to do with the climate, with warm summer weather with plenty of sun. In fact, Portugal can have as many as 300 sunny days per year, making this an all-year-round destination to find some top golf.
The Algarve offers sandy beaches and busy tourist towns with top dining restaurants and bars. However, there are also small, traditional fishing towns and villages along the coastline for a taste of real Portugal.
Alternatively you can head to the city of Lisbon, a historic wonderland of culture and climate in its relatively compact city centre. Relaxed and welcoming, Lisbon has a range of excellent bars, restaurants and cafes and is also close to beaches and the sea. It makes the perfect base to explore the nearby area and its many golf courses.
Golf courses in Portugal
Probably the greatest concentration of golf courses in Portugal can be found on the Southern coast in the Algarve area of the country. Famed for its tourist traps, quieter coastline towns offering a true taste of Portugal and, of course, golf, it has some of the best courses in Europe dotted along its spectacular scenery.
The most important courses in Algarve are those in the Dom Pedro portfolio; five championship courses in Vilamoura. These include the Dom Pedro Victoria, the host of the Portugal Masters, the Old Course, Pinhal, Laguna, & Millennium Course. However, world class courses such as San Lorenzo, the American-style Quinta do Lago and the challenging but beautiful Palmares (one of the best courses Lagos) are all great options.
