Lisbon is a relative newcomer to the scene in terms of high end golf travel, but it has made serious waves in recent years, picking up a clutch of awards in recognition of the first class courses, hospitality and accommodation providers in the region.
This has spurred us to put together some options allowing you to make Lisbon your next golf tour destination, and we think they are pretty attractive. What can you expect? Five star luxury from the outset, and the chance to explore a diverse golfing landscape where quality is the common denominator.
From Lisbon, your journey will take you North, South and West, discovering the hugely varied landscapes up and down the coastline. The locals are extremely freindly, and you will find that English is widely spoken.
In the North, Praia D’El Rey is the star; from your base at the five-star Marriott resort you will have the chance to tackle a spectacular golf course that is half woodland and half links, and offers some of the best views of any course in Europe. Further South, highlights include the excellent Oitavos and the even more impressive Troia, a Trent Jones wonder perched on a gorgeous peninsula.

We had a great time on our golf holiday to Lisbon, Penha Longa was far and away the best course. Oitavos was nice, but harder because it is more exposed to wind and a bit longer, enjoyable though.
We had such a fantastic golf holiday at Penha Longa. Most importantly we got the most amazing upgrade to a beautiful suite which had THE best view of the course and was just super. They were falling over themselves to be nice to us and it was just the most lovely place and the course was good too (shame about my golf though!!). The concierge at Penha Longa were brilliant, the food amazing, the course in great shape and it was good weather – couldn’t really have asked for anything more.
