With its 300 days of sunshine and beautiful natural landscape, the Algarve is considered a golfers paradise. In fact, the Algarve has been said to be the "ultimate golfing destination" by Golf Monthly and Portugal won the World Golf Award in 2018 with many of the most respected courses being 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.
