The Algarve has retained its place as the top European golf destination after sealing its latest major success at the Today’s Golfer Travel Awards.
The Portuguese golfing hotspot, which is home to over 40 courses, secured an eighth title since the awards were launched in 2011 as it retained its crown as Best Golf Destination in Continental Europe, as voted for by readers of the UK golf publication.
Today’s Golfer Courses and Travel Editor Kevin Brown said: “Congratulations to the Algarve, which is clearly as popular as ever among our readers. The awards are totally objective, as it is our readers who make the decisions and they have voted overwhelmingly in favour of the Algarve as the number one destination. Those who are lucky enough have played golf in the region always know they are in for a memorable experience with so much quality and choice available.”
Maria Manuel Delgado e Silva, Algarve tourism golf product manager, said: “It’s a huge honour that we have been voted as Best Golf Destination in Continental Europe by the readers of Today’s Golfer. To be the favourite among UK golfers is wonderful recognition for the work that goes on throughout our industry. We would like to thank everyone who has played a part in helping us win these awards and, above all, to the golfers who visit us in the Algarve. It remains our ambition to reach the highest standards that golfers have come to expect from us.”
