Lisbon derby package with golf for just £480!

Quintado Peru1

Sports fanatics are in for a real treat thanks to Orizonte - Lisbon Golf, with its hugely popular ‘Derby & Golf Weekend’ package set to deliver a thrilling climax to the football season, while also giving golfers access to some of the best courses near the Portuguese capital.

This is the fifth year the fantastic football-inspired stay-and-play deal has run, but it promises to be the most exciting yet as the ‘Derby de Lisboa’ between Sporting Lisbon and Benfica in the 50,000-capacity Estádio José Alvalade on Sunday, May 6, is shaping up to be a Primeira Liga title-decider.

Add that to the chance to play one round of golf at both Orizonte’s highly acclaimed Quinta do Peru, as well as either of the stunning Aroeira courses, then this year’s package, which includes a three-night stay at the city centre SANA Malhoa hotel, is a must for all sports fans.

The four-star SANA Malhoa, complete with fully-equipped gymnasium, sauna, jacuzzi, Turkish bath, bar and restaurant, is situated in the heart of the bustling Portuguese capital, just ten minutes from Lisbon airport, while Aroeira is just 25 minutes away and Quinta do Peru a 35-minute transfer.

Orizonte’s derby package from May 4-7 costs just £480 (€542), with the chance to include an extra round of golf at the prestigious Ribagolfe course, described as the ‘Valderrama of Portugal’, for an additional discounted rate of £44 (€50).

The Rocky Roquemore-designed Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club – host of several European Challenge Tour events – recently strengthened its position as one of Portugal’s top golfing venues recently when it came 17th in the Top 50 Courses of Portugal 2018.

Ribagolfe

This stunning course, which opened in 1994, meanders through verdant pines and is bordered by the lush Arrábida Natural Park.

There was also recognition for Aroeira I, sister course Aroeira II and Ribagolfe I as they ranked 24th, 29th and 43rd respectively on the well-respected Top 100 Golf Courses website.

Aroeira I is a Frank Pennink creation set within the Setabul Peninsula’s preservation area and dense pine forest, and has been described as the “Wentworth of Lisbon” by the British press.

Ribagolfe I, meanwhile, a host to the European Tour Qualifying School over the last decade and regarded as the ‘Valderrama of Portugal’ is a stunning layout situated in an enchanting native cork forest.
