Algarve, Portugal as a selected Golf destination
A golfer’s paradise, the Algarve offers outstanding golf courses and wonderful weather. Portugal’s southernmost province is famous for spectacular scenery along a stunning coastline. What could be better! In fact, Algarve regularly tops polls conducted among travel operators (who ought to know!) as the world’s number one golf destination!
During the 1970’s and 1980’s golf courses mushroomed along Portugal’s southern coast. None of the Algarve golf courses are more than 15 kilometres from the coast but the terrain varies from steep hillsides around Parque da Floresta to near sea-level flatlands of Salgados and Vilamoura III, which, together with Palmares, includes links holes.
The newest is The Amendoeira Golf Resort located in the central Algarve, in the district of Silves and 10 minutes away from Armação de Pêra beach. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the luxury apartments are set within extensive landscaped gardens with the Monchique mountains forming a stunning backdrop.
This award winning resort offers magnificent apartments with exceptional interior design, excellent facilities and a fully equipped kitchen.
You may find it puzzling that the mainly dry and arid countryside of the Algarve gives way to verdant oasis at each golf complex. This is due to water catchments and private boreholes which tap into subterranean water sources for irrigation.
The Algarve is home to several of the world’s top courses and has played host to many competitions and international tournaments. You may be a skilled-amateur looking for new challenges or a beginner looking for a relaxing break from everyday life. If so, Algarve golf courses are definitely for you.
