The golf clubs are on us.

That’s the message to prospective holidaymakers from the Algarve.

The top Portuguese golf holiday destination is teaming-up with the industry’s golf tour operator network for the innovative campaign, which could save golfers up to €100 each on a direct international flight to Faro, with most major airlines included.

Golfers travelling from the UK, Ireland, Austria, Denmark and France, as well as Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and The Netherlands – who are staying at an officially-licensed hotel, villa or apartment – will be eligible to for the 'free bag' offer as the Algarve chips in to take some of the strain.



Upon arrival at Faro, the welcoming stretch of southern Portugal awaits with year-round sunshine, warm temperatures, and a staggering 43 nine or 18-hole courses to choose from. It is especially welcome at a time of year when golfers in other parts of Europe see their opportunities limited by the weather.

• The Algarve is back in full swing

The free golf bag offer will be applied to bookings made with a licensed golf tour operator for a minimum five-night stay between November and the end of April 2021 in the sun-drenched golfing Mecca, with bookings having to be confirmed by December 31, 2020.

Visitors will also feel safe in the knowledge that the Algarve has extensive precautions implemented, with hotels and courses having Clean & Safe certification, which has been introduced by Portugal Tourism in recent times.

A spokesperson for Algarve Tourism said: “We know our friends across Europe see their opportunities to play golf a little more limited in the autumn and winter months, but in the Algarve, we are open all year round.

“We all know it’s been a difficult time for everyone with so many travel plans postponed or cancelled this year. But we hope this gesture will be appreciated and may allow some more of our guests to rearrange their visit to our golf courses during the next few months.”
