Fly into Faro for the East Algarve Golf Festival


If you have ever thought about visiting Portugal, then you’ve most likely only thought about traveling there because of the views and the tourist spots. However, now that the East Algarve Golf Festival has become one of the most popular attractions in outside of Faro, you now have a reason to visit and enjoy. Before you fly into Faro, you must first understand what the festival is about and what you will be doing. Here are a few reasons why heading to Portugal for the East Algarve Golf Festival is a smart idea for golf players and fans alike.

From December 1st to the 8th, you will be able to enjoy five of the best golf courses in the area. These courses are nothing like you have ever seen before, as they are challenging yet still allow you to enjoy. Whether it is the long par 5 at the Monte Rei Golf & Country Club, or the popular par 3 Benamor golf, you will definitely get your money’s worth. The other three courses that you will be playing on are Castro Marim Country Club, Quinta Da Ria Golf, & Quinta do Vale Golf & Resort. Each day of your trip can be spent on the green, and you get a little variety to boot. The courses are some of the most impressive landscapes to be found in Portugal.

Another great thing about this festival is that, once you pay the initial fee of €615, it will quickly become obvious that you are getting everything that you paid for. You will have 7 nights of accommodation and a buffet breakfast every morning when you wake up. There’s also a party at Castro Marim. Though you will be transferred from each event, you will also have the benefit of having a car rental for 7 days. All you have to do is leave it at the airport when you leave. You’ll then top the whole event off with a gala dinner at Monte Rei Golf & Country Club. The event prides itself on treating its participants well, and it almost feels like being a professional golfer for a week.

Not only will you be playing golf at some of the great courses in Portugal, you will also be able to mingle with the locals. The locals in the area are very accommodating, and you can be guaranteed to meet a few new friends during your golf trip. The East Algarve Golf Festival is easily one of the most popular festivals for visitors and locals alike. The best thing about this festival is that it is extremely affordable, and you will see that you are getting way more than what you are paying for. Having access to these golf courses is priceless in itself, and being able to play them is simply incredible. Most of these golf courses require you to have a membership just to play them, and so the small fee is well worth it to get to play world class golf courses.

So get ready to toss those winter blues, head to Portugal and enjoy some warmth and sunshine while playing golf at the East Algarve Golf Festival in December. Even just going to watch the other golfers hit the green is worth the trip.
