The Algarve is replete with top class golf courses, hotels and resorts that have earned Portugal its reputation as the premier golf holiday destination in Europe. Synonymous with golf, the Algarve benefits from a pleasant year round climate that is simply perfect for playing golf under the sun.
Dona Filipa is one of the very best golf resorts in Europe and is the first port of call on this golf tour. Not only does Donna Filipa offer five star accommodation, outstanding facilities and best of all exclusive access to the San Lorenzo golf course which is widely regarded to be the very best in the whole of Portugal. As well as San Lorenzo golfers will also pay other Algarve heavyweights a visit including the Oceanico Victoria and Old Courses and the Royal Course at Vale do Lobo which boasts one of the most famous holes in the world.
Once your time at Dona Filipa is up fear not; as you will be heading for yet more five star luxury and outstanding golf courses. Nestled in 2000 acres of rolling hills and majestic pine forests, Quinta do Lago offers golfers truly luxurious surroundings and world class golf is never too far away.
The golfing delights that make up the remainder of the Algarve Tour include the Jack Nicklaus designed Monte Rei and the picturesque Quinta do Lago South Course which is one of the most illustrious courses in the country having hosted countless professional events including the Portuguese Open on an impressive eight occasions.

We had a lovely time in the Algarve and our golf holiday went very smoothly. We played five courses over the five days and all the courses were very nice indeed. The consensus is that San Lorenzo is the best of the five but my favourite is the Vale the Lobo Royal. Vale de Lobo Ocean is also a very nice course.
The Oceanico Victoria Course seems to have been designed with tournament golf very much in mind and as such it’s a far cry from your typical Algarve golf course. Where you’d usually find rows of umbrella pines lining the fairways, there are American style mounds, big bunkers and even bigger water hazards. And that is no bad thing because, as they say, variety is the spice of life. Oceanico Victoria certainly brings that to the Algarve.
