The Portuguese Algarve is one of golf’s most exciting international destinations. It all began with the vision of one man — Sir Henry Cotton. This world renowned golfer visited the area in the 1960s and envisioned a golf oasis that the rest of the world is still discovering. Many Europeans vacation here, and many Americans are starting to make the journey here. To sum it up in two words, the Algarve is simply a “golfer’s heaven.”
This spectacular destination has over 30 golf courses in the area including San Lorenzo Golf Club, which has been ranked as high as #3 in Continental Europe. Fly into Faro and you’ll be within 30 minutes of some of the world’s most outstanding golf courses and accommodations. There are many other activities to occupy the mind and spirit. You can stroll along the golden beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, sightsee at historical cathedrals and small villages, savor the excellent cuisine that is a trademark of this area, and just enjoy the warm hospitality of the Portuguese people. Lastly, do not forgot about the the Lisbon area to the north!
