The Algarve, Europe’s leading golf destination, is gearing up for a busy 2015 after reporting an increase of more than 50,000 rounds played on its famous courses last year.
Golf was born on the Algarve in 1966 and, 49 years later, its appeal burns brighter than ever, with 41 golf courses and an unrivalled infrastructure of hotels, resorts and off-course attractions.
Blessed with a superb year-round climate and mild temperatures, the Algarve’s other success factors continue to be: strong flight connections to Faro airport from across Europe, the relaxed and friendly nature of its people, and great value for money.
A spokesperson for the Associação Turismo do Algarve (ATA) said: “We are delighted that so many more visitors enjoyed golf in the Algarve last year and had the opportunity to experience our distinct offering.
“We continue to work hard with our golf tourism industry to deliver exceptional levels of service to our guests, and to send them home with wonderful memories.”
The Algarve’s sun-drenched climate boasts more than 300 days of sunshine per year, extending the golf season over several months and bringing players from all over the world to the Algarve.
