5 Facts You Might Not Know About Stay And Play Golf Deals

If you and your friends want to go away for a golfing holiday and want a minimum of travelling from your accommodation and between courses then the best way to proceed is to look for a company that can offer you accommodation with courses attached to the hotel or linked in a package with courses in the immediate vicinity. The Algarve is an excellent choice from many points of view and you should check out this service to see what is possible.

The Algarve scores in the first instance because its airport in the capital, Faro, has regular direct flights from a host of regional airports in the UK and Northern Europe. A three hour flight actually means you can fly in the morning, transfer and check into your hotel then immediately leave for the course and an afternoon round.

That is the first of several advantages when you go on a stay and play deal; there are others:

  • You will be able to use the practice facilities on the courses as well as book buggies, and even equipment.

  • Tuition will be available, either individually or as a group as a whole.

  • While you may have already booked your tee times if you decide that you want an extra game on what would have been a rest day it is just a matter of talking to the golf desk to see what is available.

  • Each of the alternatives that you can select in the Algarve will also have facilities to enjoy when you are not on the course; swimming pools, tennis courts, gym and spa are obvious examples.

Golf began in the Algarve in the 1960s and the excellent climate in this part of the world ensured that as golf became an increasingly popular sport golfers would give the area serious consideration.

There are some obvious choices to consider:

  • Penina was the first course in the region and the Resort remains a popular destination for golfers wishing to play this old Championship course

  • Vilamoura is another and its Old Course, one of several has also hosted the Portuguese Open several times

  • Vale do Lobo is another that has gained a reputation for providing a great golfing experience

  • Boavista Resort in Lagos fairly close to Faro is another gem.

You may want to be in a particular part of the Algarve. In all cases there is likely to be a great beach nearby and the cuisine, with local wine, is excellent everywhere you go. It is certainly worth getting the help and advice of experts that have organised holidays for many golfing groups in the past. It will certainly save you time and because of the rates such experts will have negotiated with resorts it is unlikely to cost you much, if anything, for the service provided. Whether you want to travel in the height of summer or in the depths of winter courses will be in good condition and just awaiting your arrival.
