Golf in the Algarve Breaks Visitor Records
The Algarve has been a popular golf destination for half a century, and it's significant standing is only continuing to develop as vistor levels have risen to even greater levels in 2017 with previous records having been smashed.
With the recent success of the Portugal Masters still fresh in the minds of European golf enthusiasts, the region has reported some impressive figures for the first half of this year.
The Algarve is widely-regarded as Europe's number one golf destination with 43 fabulous courses and hit an all-time high for golf visitors numbers in 2016 with almost 1.3m rounds throughout the year.
But the trend has continued in the first six months of this year. The new figures have shown another increase with more than 788,000 rounds played between January and June - a total rise of almost four per cent on the 2016 figures.
But the continued appeal of the Algarve is perhaps best demonstrated on arrival with the diverse selection of the fabulous golf courses and the very best in hospitality and accommodation.
With the weather always a key factor and the exceptional value for money enhancing the holiday experience, there is little sign of the Algarve losing any of its pulling power as the number one choice for golf travellers from the UK, Europe and beyond.
Maria Manuel Delgado e Silva, ATA golf product manager, said: "We aim to ensure any visit to the Algarve is the best holiday experience possible for all of our visitors.
"As well as the golf, we understand the success of the stay is about the friendly welcome our guests can expect, the quality of the accommodation and the enjoyment of everything else we have to offer away from the golf courses.”
