A Lisbon treat for amateur golfers

9.15am 26th November 2004 - Travel

The Lisbon golf festival for amateur golfers will be held 1st – 8th May 2005. For the third year in a row, participants will enjoy some of Europe’s finest courses, meet fellow golfers from all over the world and, as the title suggests, have some serious fun both on and off the course.
The Festival takes place over the courses of the Costa Azul – Aroeira, Quinta do Peru and Troia – before heading to Estoril and the stunning Quinta da Marinha Oitavos Golf and then the final rounds played at Penha Longa, Praia d‘El Rey, Belas and Quinta da Marinha.
Non-golfing partners are warmly welcomed and can enjoy the wonderful social functions on offer as well as the vibrant, historic and friendly city of Lisbon. The glamorous resort of Estoril and the quaint fishing villages of Cascais and Sesimbra are also well worth a visit.
The event is supported by a number of high profile companies including the Lisbon Tourist Board, TAP Air Portugal, Quinta de S. Francisco, Bullet & Cougar Golf, Euro RSCG, Crocker Motorola & Radiotrans, Budget Rent-a-Car, Bennett’s Golf & Learning Centre and the three regional tourist boards – Estoril & Sintra, Oeste and Costa Azul.
Tournament Entry for the 7 days is Euro 475. Entry for just part of the week is available from Euro 245. An early booking discount of 10% is offered for any bookings made before 1st January 2005.
“Entries are already being received from previous competitors as well as new enquiries. The word is starting to spread about the fantastic courses, the beautiful city of Lisbon and the great fun to be had in the Festival. In the first two years, we have had players from UK, Ireland, Greece, Germany, Finland, Portugal, Aruba,” said Louise Brown from event organizers Team Frith.
