With an ideal climate that allows one to practice all year round and a wide variety of nearly 40 courses, the Algarve is the paradise of Golf lovers. Most courses are located in protected areas, with stunning views. They are internationally recognised for the quality of their facilities, and they have been designed by prestigious players and legendary champions such as Sir Henry Cotton, Rocky Roquemore, Arnold Palmer and Ronald Fream.
The courses are spread through all the Algarve, nearby the beach or further inland, flat or hilly, the choice is varied, but any of them offer the chance of birdies and eagles, and maybe even a hole in one. Between Lagos, Sagres and Serra de Monchique there are courses with different difficulty levels, where the greens and fairways are framed by beautiful natural scenery. It is in this area, near Portimão, that the first course opened in Algarve is located, the Penina Hotel & Golf Resort, which has been awarded on several occasions as one of the best in Europe.
