Golf in Lisbon
The Lisbon Coast is one of the fastest growing golfing regions in Europe having won the “Established Golf Destination of the Year” award in 2003 and the “Golf Destination of the Year: Europe” award in 2007. The prize was awarded by 140 golf tour operators from 27 different countries, all members of IAGTO (the International Association of Golf Tour Operators). The options are many, starting with Estoril Coast and its stunning golf located just a short drive from the Lisbon city centre and it includes an enormous variety of courses to play. There are 9 18-hole courses and a number of 9-hole courses. Most of these courses were designed by architects with an international reputation. Lisbon is one of the best regions in Portugal, if not the best, to play golf and all the courses pose a great challenge for players of different handicaps. The diversity of the courses is remarkable and the great quality of all the infra-structures is impressive. In addition to the golf, the vibrant capital city of Lisbon is never too far away, ensuring that your Portuguese golf break is as entertaining or relaxing, as you want it to be.
