Algarve is located on the western part of Portugal and is full of sun, sand and gorgeous landscapes. It has no dreary winters and is an ideal location for any golf lover as there are numerous courses here that are both new and old and will challenge you to the core. The bunkers, the fairways and the numerous lakes and trees are also interspersed along the courses to provide more of a challenge to your game. If you are planning a golf vacation in Algarve, you should follow the steps below to get the best travel packages and deals.
When you go online and search for the best packages, you will not only get the best rates but will also be able to compare different types of packages. You can pick the course that suits you best or that you find challenging and can also choose the amount of rounds you want to play as well as the number of nights you want to stay at the resort adjoining the course. For example the Penina Hotel and Golf Resort has a 5 nights’ package that offers you three free rounds of golfing options on the Penina Championship Course.
You can choose a package that not only takes care of your accommodation and course but also your flights to and from the region as well. You will be provided transportation to the hotel from the airport and back to the airport on the return trip. These are good options where everything is taken care of in one go and you don’t need to book everything. In fact many hotels and resorts have deals with several airlines so you can call them up and ask them about these packages.
Unless you book a luxury resort in Portugal, you should note that the Algarve region generally has very moderate and standard hotels and villas. The four star hotels here are very different from what they are like all over Europe so you should be prepared for that. You should also try booking hotels and resorts in advance to avoid paying huge amounts.
When you book a golf tour, you will get to play on several different courses in different regions of Algarve. These tours will generally provide accommodation for you in resorts on or near the courses so that you can travel around easily. You will also have slotted tee times so that you can practice shots at your own time and pace.
