Portugal is regarded by many to be the world’s premier destination for golf. Although amazing golf courses can be found up and down the nation, it’s in the Algarve where the real gems are. The Algarve experiences an average of 300 days of sunshine every year meaning a visit is almost guaranteed to provide you with ideal playing conditions. At Kenwood Travel we know that holidays to the Algarve are often taken with golf in mind, that’s why we offer hotels in the region that specialise in amazing packages.
Conrad Algarve offers a selection of packages that golf enthusiasts will love. Quinta do Lago, where the resort is located, is within easy reach of a wide array of world class courses. The resort also has its very own PGA qualified golf pro who will be happy to help you improve your swing.
The resort’s Diamond Experience is the premium package on offer and takes golfers on a whirlwind tour across the area’s very best courses. You’ll get to try a round on The Royal Golf Course, an extremely demanding challenge which includes a dramatic test at the famous 16th hole where you have to place a shot across a cliff. This shot is particularly tricky if the wind is going against you. The Diamond Experience also covers rounds at both Quinta do Lago North and South, Ocean Golf Course and the award winning Laranjal.
In between rounds of golf, you’ll get to recharge your batteries at one of the best resorts in Portugal. Conrad Algarve offers a wide selection of beautiful rooms that are comfortably furnished and replete with modern amenities including wide-screen televisions and complimentary WiFi. Keeping your energy up for another day of golf is a real treat with restaurants including Gusto by Heinz Beck serving up contemporary and traditional delicacies from Portugal and further afield.
