So you've decided on Albufeira as the destination for your golfing holiday, now you need to work out the nuts and bolts of booking the trip. In case you aren't familiar with Albufeira, here is some information on where you will be going.
What began as a quiet coastal village on the Southern coast of the Algarve, Albufeira has now grown to a town of 40,000 and has many sandy beaches a busy nightlife with lots of restaurants serving fresh seafood.
If you want to be close to the action, the Hotel Brisa Sol and the Real Bellavista hotel are two good options. I encourage you to research further into hotels in the area, but you won't go very far wrong if you start at one of these two.
Albufeira is located to the west of the Villa Mora area and is an ideal location for couples or golfing groups. Here are a few golf courses that will challenge your game and please your eyes:
If you are missing the links courses of Britain, Salgados is the closest thing you'll find to it in Portugal. Sitting right behind the beaches of Praia de Gale, the costal breezes will demand you control your golf ball or suffer high scores.
Home to two golf courses; Gramacho with 18 holes designed by Nick Price, Vale da Pinta designed by Ronald Fream.
Designed by 6-time major champion Sir Nick Faldo. Don't worry about arriving late and having no daylight hours left - the course provides floodlit golf
The sister course to the aforementioned Faldo design. A fitting tribute to the late great Irish golfer.
Look for flights from the UK to Faro Airport. From there, you will you have a 40 minute drive to the town. Many budget airlines have teamed up with golf resorts to offer packages with golf included. British Airways, Thomas Cook Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and Emirates are some of the airlines who have partnered up with golf travel websites. So while you book your flight, you can book your golf at the same time.
A good starting point for finding your ideal Albufeira golf package would be to contact the airline first. They will probably be able to inform your about golfing options and how to get the best deal.
