If you’re looking for a winter golfing holiday then the Algarve is the ideal place to hit the fairways. Winters on the Algarve are mild which means golfers from the UK can enjoy warm, sunny days and keep their swing smooth when frozen courses back home are unplayable.
World Class Golf Courses
The Algarve is one of Europe's favourite golfing destinations because of its many world-class golf courses. It is home to no fewer than 30 courses, many of which have been designed over the years by golf legends like Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo, Trent Jones and Seve Ballesteros.
The Old and the New
Each course offers a unique design, taking advantage of the local landscape allowing the golfer a challenging yet memorable game.
These days the courses are a mixture of old and new. Old classic courses such as San Lorenzo and Quinta do Lago are still favourites with many discerning golfers, but probably the best golf course in Portugal is the more recently built Monte Rei.
Cheap flights to the Algarve are available all year round at Jet2.com. Flights go from Belfast, Blackpool, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Newcastle.
