Algarve Golf Holiday, is Golfing in Paradise, don’t miss it!

Algarve Golf Holiday

You might know already, but if not I got news for you! Playing Golf in the Algarve is golfing in Paradise!
And Algarve Housing rents fantastic self catered villas close to beautiful
golf courses. Why not combine the luxury of your own rental villa and play golf in the Algarve?

Any keen golfer will know what it is like to sit out those months where the weather just does not allow it to play golf or your enthusiasm is at an all time low for this great game because of it.

Those from the Northern hemisphere can’t wait to get past February and March and those living in more tropical climates can’t wait for cooler times. So what to do? The answer has to be the Algarve in Portugal.

The Algarve has all year round superb weather to keep honing your golfing skills so that when your club tournaments begin you’re up and running to win your monthly medal.

The Algarve with its cooling breeze and 300 days of blue skies offers over 30 golf courses within a 160 km (100 miles ) distance.

Golf Holiday Villa Vilamoura

Vilamoura is at the centre of it with some famous courses surrounding it. The famous Penina resort, the Old course, San Lorenzo and Victoria golf courses stand out. But don’t forget the East of the Algarve which offers the newly Jack Nicklaus build, Monte Rei Golf course as well as Quinta da Ria home of several ladies and senior pro tour events.

Just imagine walking along the Atlantic Ocean playing golf while Flamingos are looking at you wondering what all the fuss is about.

Just imagine playing your approach shot from beautifully kept fairways and putting on the quick true greens, surrounded by mountains on one side and the beach on the other.

You probably still don’t know what it is like to play in the Algarve. So the next time you’re dreading your compulsory golf break have a look at our website and book a nice villa that suits all your needs and discover for yourself why so many are choosing to play golf here. Why not
combine playing golf in the Algarve with the luxury of your own holiday villa!

Relax around the pool after a day playing Golf!

The Old Course-Vilamoura

Situated in the heart of the Vilamoura seaside resort a mere 20-minute drive from Faro airport, this Frank Pennink designed parkland style layout is one of the oldest in the region and renowned all over the golfing world.

Often described as the Grande Dame of Algarve courses, it meanders throughout impressive pinetrees – the principal hazard – over gently undulating natural terrain. Although it opened in 1969, the course was completely renovated and modernised 27 years later although no major changes were made to the magnificent layout.

In addition to raising the Vilamoura Old Course to new heights of quality, an attractive new clubhouse and adjacent putting green were also built at that time. As with all Vilamoura courses, environmental protection practices are strictly adhered to by means of detailed management systems in line with guidelines established by ISO 14001 standards, Green Globe and Committed to Green programmes.

No Holes: 18
