Western Algarve

The Western Algarve justifiably retains its popularity with British golfers despite stiff competition from newer destinations across Europe.

The well-established and well-known courses in the Algarve have matured into great tests of your game and the relative newcomers to the scene are definitely worth seeking out.

From Faro Airport head west to Vilamoura, Albufeira and beyond, to take your pick of the many excellent golf courses along this stretch, including Penina, San Lorenzo,  Vilamoura Old and Palmares.

You can choose to stay in the bustling resorts such as Vilamoura or Quinta da Lago or head even further west for a golf holiday at a gentler pace.
