ORIZONTE, Portugal’s leading golf management company, is getting ready to roll out the red carpet and reopen its doors at its Lisbon-based venues to international guests following significant recent investment on and off the course.

World-class golf, upgraded sports and leisure facilities and one of the Portuguese capital’s most chic new hotels form the centrepiece of the enticing menu that ORIZONTE has put together to welcome golfers back after lockdown eases from May 17, with four-night, three-round packages available for €353 per person.

Bookable until September 30, the stay-and-play breaks feature golf at two ORIZONTE-managed venues, Aroeira Golf Resort and Ribagolfe, as well as a choice of hotel and self-catering accommodation options, including the recently-opened Aroeira Lisbon Hotel.

Nestled amid tranquil natural pine forest, Aroeira – 25km south of Lisbon – is rated among Europe’s top 50 golf resorts and features two 18-hole championship courses – Aroeira I, a two-time host of the Portuguese Open, and Aroeira II.

Located on the stunning Aroeira estate, the Aroeira Lisbon Hotel provides the ultimate in chic modern design, including 68 bedrooms and suites, an outdoor pool, a spa and a choice of five bars and restaurants, and offers easy access to the many golden sandy beaches in the Costa Azul region.

Alternatively, golfers can enjoy a staycation break in one of Aroeira’s choice of villas and apartments with stay-and -play packages also including access to the resort’s refurbished swimming pool and chill-out area – the ideal place to relax and unwind after a day on the fairways.

A short drive from Aroeira, Ribagolfe boasts two of the finest layouts in the Lisbon region – Ribagolfe I and II. As part of ORIZONTE’s golf maintenance programme, both courses have also been the subject of a winter upgrade while a new hotel partner for 2021, the Four Points by Sheraton Sesimbra, offers the ideal base to play the club known as the ‘Valderrama of Portugal’.
