Have you ever taken some time to ask yourself what really makes Portugal the ultimate golf destination for a lot of enthusiasts?

Why You Should Consider Staying At Vale Do Lobo Golf Resort

An increasing number of golfers have discovered the delights of travelling abroad to enjoy their hobby. It does not involve a long flight to head to the Mediterranean when the climate means that courses are in decent condition all year round; no flooding, ice or snow even in mid-winter. The Algarve in Southern Portugal has established a reputation as good golfing country with plenty to do by night, and great cuisine as well. The airport serving this compact region is in the Algarve’s Capital, Faro and there are regular flights to and from a host of European destinations.

If you are thinking of a golf tour you could certainly do worse than consider Vale do Lobo Resort:

  • It was established 50 years ago with Sir Henry Cotton designing its first golf course.
  • A second course was built so visitors can test their skills against courses where professionals have competed in the Portuguese Open.
  • There are organised special events that amateurs can play in such as a specific foursomes week and a week devoted specifically for amateur competitions.
  • Tee times can be booked in advance before arrival.
  • The Courses are open all year round and due to the Algarve’s climate there is really no such thing as ‘winter golf’ as UK golfers would know.

The two courses are the Royal and the Ocean. The former plays along the edge of the cliffs while the Ocean is aptly named as it goes down to the beach; there are several holes in traditional links style. They present a challenge to all yet are perfectly playable for those with a high handicap.

It would be wrong to ignore the other qualities of Vale do Lobo. It has wonderful beaches, plenty of accommodation from apartments and villas to 5 Star luxury. It is just a 20 minute transfer from the airport so travellers can fly in the morning and swim or golf that afternoon without being rushed.

There are tennis facilities with 14 courts so you will be certain to get a court when you want it. Leisure facilities in general are excellent with a gym, spa and general pampering on hand. After the activities of the day are over there are 15 restaurants from which to choose, followed by bars and clubs if you want a late night. There is something for all the family at Vale do Lobo which makes it an ideal destination for all ages.
