Thinking about organising a group golf trip? Look no further than one of Portugal’s most celebrated hotel groups.

As one of the largest in Europe, the family-owned Pestana Hotel group - with 95 hotels in 16 countries worldwide, is a leading multinational group in Portugal’s tourism and leisure sector. It boasts incredible properties across charming locations, with world-class golf courses at hand. With the fantastic sunny weather in Portugal, and so much to see and do, it’s little wonder that they consistently gain new customers every year, with our golfers returning time and time again.

Below are some of our top picks from Pestana Hotels:

Facilities include indoor and outdoor pools, a gym, sauna and steam room. Indulge in a wide range of treatments at the hotel’s spa and find yourself transported from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to a place of total peace and relaxation.

Experience sumptuous local and international cuisine at the Atlantic Gardens restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The quaint Italian restaurant offers a delicious à la carte menu with refreshing drinks and is a great spot to recharge your batteries after a long day on the fairways. Sip on a beer or cocktail at the comfortable Sunset Bar which offers an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
