The Algarve in Portugal is one of the most popular golf destinations in Europe. The region enjoys 300 days of glorious sunshine coupled with very pleasant weather. Tourists from the UK, Germany and Holland especially come to the region to enjoy days of winter golf away from the freezing conditions back home.

The world-class tourist facilities, wonderful weather, excellent golf courses, superb beaches lashed by Mediterranean waters have turned the Algarve into a major tourist center in Europe.

There are so many top courses here in the Algarve; you will be spoilt for choice when you have to decide on a golf course among them. The by now famous names of some of the courses are Parque da Floresta, Palmares, Boavista, Penina, Morgado do Requengo, and many more. While these golf courses are very well renowned, there are plenty of courses to choose from throughout the Algarve. Most of these are located in Eastern Algarve, and offer smaller, simpler courses. And as the Algarve area is rather compact, all of the area's golf courses are within easy driving distance from any point in the Algarve. The landscape of the Algarve countryside with rolling hills and rich pine woodlands makes the drives from course to course a lovely experience.

Accommodation facilities are available near all the courses as classy golf resorts have come up all along the course routes. There are also 5 star accommodation facilities available in hotels surrounding the golf courses. Given all this, it is only natural that the summer months see the highest number of golfers in Algarve and it is virtually impossible to find any tee times or accommodation during the peak season. So take into consideration the following tips to enjoy a hassle free golf holiday in Algarve.
