Golf in Portugal

It has always been a dream of mine to travel around the entire world playing golf. If I ever win the lottery, the World Series of Poker (which I'm playing in this year), or suddenly get struck by lightning, and my game gets as good as Tiger, or Phil, I plan on taking the around the world never-ending golf vacation.

In the meantime, until that miracle happens, I'll have to research various destinations, such as golf in portugal.

It appears to be a nice little spot with good golf, weather, and variety.

Three prime areas for golf in Portugal are the Algarve, Lisbon, and Madeira.

Algarve: The Algarve has a collection of first class championship courses and resorts along the coastline. The weather is perfect for year round golf. The top destination on the Algarve is Vilamoura, a harbour town that has been transformed into a comprehensive golf complex, with five championship courses. Vilamoura is also known for the nightlife which is perfect for traveling in groups.

Lisbon: The coastal area around Portugal’s capital has emerged as a fantastic location for a golf escape. The landscape features Atlantic beaches, cultural attractions, and outstanding golf options.

Madeira: Located off the North-West coast of Africa, the island of Madeira has an excellent year-round climate for golf, features two golf courses, several terrific hotels, as well as mountain views. The Santo da Serra golf course has hosted the European Tour event for the Madeira Open.

Golf, islands, mountain views, beaches, nightlife, and great weather. Sign me up now.
