Golf is a sport enjoyed at its best in sunshine and generally good weather. Portugal and the Algarve in particular is world famous for its wonderful golf courses and the country is therefore a popular destination for golfing holidays.
The Alentejo is a relatively unspoiled and undeveloped region which is why it is such a popular place for that get-away-from-it-all type holiday where you can enjoy peace, relaxation and tranquility amongst breathtaking scenery and some wonderful wildlife, flora and fauna.
Those benefits are undeniably good but it does mean that we have no golf courses carved out of our local landscape. However, looking for a quality golf course is no problem because there are at least 10 or 12 courses within a drive of just 1 1/2 hours from the Quinta.
This makes the Quinta ideal for a holiday where couples or groups who might have golfers amongst them can indulge themselves - the non-golfers enjoying a day at the Quinta with perhaps a Shiatsu massage on site or opting for some water sports whilst the golfers get themselves away for a day's golfing.
Here are some of the golf course on the Algarve ideally suited to a day's golfing whilst on holiday at the Quinta:
Located between Portimao and Lagos. This course offers a wonderful combination of dunes and hills.
San Lorenzo Golf Course
Located to the west of Faro. This golf course is currently rated number 1 in all of Portugal and indeed is regarded by many as one of Europe's finest.
