The region’s year-round attractive climate - temperatures averaging 25-30° in summer, 15-18°C in winter - makes the Algarve a huge draw for golfers. Add in the proximity of beautiful beaches, warm seas and top-class hotels, restaurants and other sports facilities and it’s no surprise that the Algarve is often top of the list for golfers looking for a short-haul, guaranteed-sunshine break. Our selection of the best Algarve hotels for golfers offers a wide range from value chic close to the fairways to all-singing-all-dancing resorts with excellent private courses.
The downside is that green fees to use the courses are not particularly cheap. The solution? Choose a hotel that’s either attached to a golf club or is part of a specifically designed golf resort. These hotels usually offer guests heavily discounted rates. They also often have a range of other sporting activities and pools - children’s clubs and spas in the bigger resorts - to keep everyone in the family happy. Generally, the bulk of the best Algarve hotels for golfers are found to the west of Faro.
Due to the mild autumn temperatures, golf can be a year-round activity on the Algarve. This means you can avoid the peak holiday seasons and be sure of getting the pick of the best Algarve hotels for golfers. Nothing here for you?
