Portugal Golf Holidays

Portugal is situated at the south-west point of Europe and also includes the Madeira and Azores archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean.  Mainland Portugal occupies an area of 88,889 km2. It is 218 km wide and 561 km long. It has 832 km of Atlantic coast and a 1,215 km border with Spain.
 
The Azores are situated in the Atlantic Ocean between Europe and North America. They have an area of 2,355 km2 and consist of nine islands – São Miguel and Santa Maria in the Eastern Group, Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial in the Central Group and Flores and Corvo in the Western Group. It takes about two hours to get from the Azores to mainland Portugal by plane.
 
The Madeira Archipelago has an area of 741 km2 and lies in the Atlantic Ocean about 500 km from the African coast and 1,000 km from the European continent (1½ hours flying time from Lisbon). It consists of the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo and the uninhabited Desertas and Selvagens islands, which are nature reserves.
 
Portugal has a population of about 10 million. The second largest city in Portugal is Oporto in the north. Generally speaking, there are more people living in the country’s coastal regions than in the inland areas.
 
The climate in Portugal varies considerably from one region to another and is influenced by the relief, latitude and proximity to the sea, which offers mild winters, especially in the Algarve.
In the Porto e Norte area and Beiras region, particularly inland, nearer Spain, the winters are colder, although the temperatures are still mild when compared to the rest of Europe. There is some snowfall. It occurs most in the Serra da Estrela mountains, where we find the highest point in mainland Portugal (1,991 m) and where it is sometimes possible to ski.
The summers are hot and dry, especially in the inland areas (Trás-os-Montes in north-eastern Portugal and Alentejo). Temperatures are slightly lower in the coastal areas, because of the influence of the sea.

Algarve
Portugal remains the overall favourite destination for Irish Golfers, thanks to its wide range of quality courses, the hospitable ways of the Portuguese, and the year-round mild climate.
 
The Algarve is regarded as one of the world’s finest golfing holiday destinations. Aside from great golf, the Algarve has something for everyone, from the traditional fishing villages of Alvor and Lagos in the west, to the excitement of Vilamoura, and on to sophisticated resorts of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago in the east; an ideal climate, excellent leisure facilities, a wide range of first class accommodation, fine cuisine and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
 
Lisbon
Golfing aside, Lisbon is full of culture and tradition. The regal grandeur of Estoril, the fishing port of Sesimbra, lively Cascais and the beautiful Sintra mountain range provide the perfect setting to a fabulous golf holiday. In addition to good golf, you’ll enjoy good quality, well-priced accommodation and a friendly service at all our carefully chosen resorts.
