With over 300 days of sunshine, world-class golf, and a range of lively town centres, the ever-improving Algarve is the perfect hotspot for a coaching golf trip. The golf resorts and clubs are perfectly set up for tuition, with multiple courses and an excellent selection of practice facilities such as modern driving ranges, chipping greens and putting areas.

Hear what a few of our PGA professionals had to say about some of the Algarve’s best-selling destinations.

Quinta do Lago

“I have been travelling to the Algarve for many years with my members and clients, and without doubt my favourite venue is Quinta do Lago. The three courses are world-class (my favourite being the South Course), and the facilities and hospitality are second to none. If you want to take a group of members away to play tour standard courses that won’t break the bank, Quinta do Lago is the place to go. Make sure you take a trip to Bovino if you’re partial to a nice steak!”

Amendoeira Golf Resort

“After getting into Pro Travel a few years ago, Amendoeira was the first resort I went to run a coaching trip with my members. It had everything I needed to run an exceptional break and offered great value for money with free use of the par 3 course and free buggies for my group. The practise facilities are excellent with a huge grass range that was reserved and plenty of short game options. Coupled with two excellent courses on-site it is the perfect venue for anyone looking to run a coaching break. My members loved it and we have been back several times since.”

Dom Pedro Marina

Vilamoura has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing break away with a group of members. We always stay at Dom Pedro Marina, right in the middle of the action, with the bars and restaurants a short stroll away and offers the perfect place to base yourself from. The courses in the area are also fantastic with the likes of the Old Course and Victoria only a short transfer away - a must play if you’re staying in Vilamoura.”
