With its 300 days of sunshine and beautiful natural landscape, the Algarve is considered a golfers paradise. In fact, for 2012, Today's Golfer has named the Algarve as “Europe’s Best Golfing Destination.” And, many of the most respected courses in Portugal are located right here in the central Algarve.
Outside of the central Algarve, there are a myriad of additional course options. In the eastern Algarve, consider the hilltop location of Monte Rei with a course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Quinta do Vale in Castro Marim, is home to Seve Ballesteros Course set on the Guadiana River with views across to Spain. In the west, some options include courses designed by Nick Faldo and Christy O’Connor at the Amendoeira resort, as well as superb courses in Penina, Lagos and Sagres.
