At the last count there were 22 golf complexes, 35 separate courses and over 585 widely differing holes to play along the south coast of the Algarve!

All of the Algarve's courses are open to visitors, most require handicap certificates, although it is possible to play at some courses without, all insist on a dress code.

The nearest golf complex is a mere 5 minute drive. Designed by Howard Swan, Boavista is a stunning golf course with panoramic views towards Praia da Luz and over Lagos Bay and beyond. The complex includes a driving range, tuition and fabulous spa, all open to visitors.

10 minutes from the villa is Espiche golf course, which has recently opened and the club house and surrounding villas are still under construction, but here you’ll find a spectacular and challenging golf course where nature abounds.

This challenging 18-hole, par 72 course offers superb rolling terrain that blends into the Algarve landscape. Its lakes, streams and indigenous planting add to the enrichment and biodiversity of the area. The course is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, trading the typical Portuguese golf experience of hotels and high rises for vineyards and views of the Monchique Mountains in the distance. 5862 meters (6411 yards) from the back tees and several other options make the course enjoyable for the casual and serious golfer alike.

For those who want to sharpen up their games, their driving range offers grass tees.

Within 15/20 mins drive there is also the interesting course of Palmares; idyllically set, with the majority of the holes on gentle slopes above the extensive beach stretching from Lagos marina to the mouth of the Alvor river and includes a sequence of five pure links holes. Also within that range are the Championship course of Penina, the challenging Parque de Floresta with spectacular views of the Atlantic and the courses of Mogado and nearby Alamos. Truly a golfers paradise!

And if you still want more there is also the golf course designed by Nick Faldo at Amendoeira, near Silves (approximately 30 minutes drive) and numerous courses up to and including the stunning courses at Quinta and Vale de Lobo are all within a maximum one hour's drive. Most courses offer twilight fees and various promotions are usually available during the year.
