A Complete Guide On Green Fees In Portugal For Golf Players

It is a great experience to travel abroad with friends to play golf. The game is the same throughout the world but somehow the challenge is a little different in another country whether the grass is different, fairways harder or just the surroundings are unfamiliar in general. Those people who find that in the winter months their local courses are in poor condition, often with winter tees and greens if they are open at all, should consider flying away to play in a climate that guarantees that their golf will still be very enjoyable. You don’t need to fly too far.

Portugal has plenty of golf courses. If you fly just three hours south to the Algarve the temperature will rise as you fly. Even in mid-winter you will find that days are mild and courses are in excellent condition. There are regular direct flights from most regional airports down to Faro, the capital of the Algarve, with many courses then within easy reach. Has this started to make you think?

Golf in the Algarve need not be too expensive. There are Championship Courses that carry a price in line with their prestige but there are price variations that you should consider.

  • Green fees may vary by season. There is less demand in the winter and so prices will reflect that.

  • Large parties may be able to get a discount on the standard rate, especially in the lower seasons.

  • Some courses offer a ‘twilight’ price because of reduced demand and it is worth checking online whether particular courses that you favour do this.

There is a fairly well established tourist infrastructure in Portugal that has developed as the availability of flights has increased. At the same time there are companies that specialise in providing golf packages for the region. That involves their having a good relationship with the courses. The result can be that you can get a more competitive green fee by using such a company rather than making direct contact with the courses themselves.

The Internet has made all aspects of leisure and travel so much easier. Electronic mail provides instant access and response and that includes enquiries relating to green fees and availability. The service you can expect from a good company offering competitive golf packages should ensure your holiday is arranged in no time at all.

“When you come to Portugal for a holiday, you will enjoy the cultural divide, the tourist attractions and most importantly interacting with the amazing people. For this incredible adventure, you will need to make sure that you plan ahead of schedule so that you have a better chance of enjoying a good time here.”
