A new golf tour operator, Golfers Algarve, has been launched by a Portuguese-based Scottish couple, and will be specialising in creating bespoke packages for groups visiting the Algarve.
The new business will provide tailored multi-night holidays for golfing groups travelling to the region.
Operating from Ferreiras near Albufeira, Golfers Algarve aims to provide as comprehensive a service as visitors wish. Whether that is a complete end-to-end itinerary including accommodation, course bookings, club hire, transfers and sightseeing trips, or simple stay and play packages. Being based locally will mean the couple are on hand to offer a personal service to the groups, meeting them on arrival and being available throughout their stay.
Alongside the golf packages, Golfers Algarve can organise partner programmes for non-golfers within the group, or as part of a non-golf day. With wineries, cook schools, spas, mountain safaris, horseback and walking tours, hot air balloon trips and a variety of water sports, the Algarve offers a varied range of activities and attractions beyond golf.
Portugal’s southernmost province, the Algarve boasts 43 golf courses, around half of the country’s total. Last year, the region celebrated 50 years since its first course opened – the Henry Cotton-designed Penina. Golf resorts in the area are regularly voted among the best in Europe. Earlier this year, readers of Today’s Golfer magazine voted the Algarve as Europe’s best golf destination and the continent’s best value golf destination.
Commenting on the launch of Golfers Algarve, Brian Reid, who has launched the business alongside his partner Fiona, said:
“Having organised group golfing holidays to the Algarve for a number of years, it was clear there was an opportunity in the market for an in country provider of bespoke packages for visiting groups. With Golfers Algarve we want to take the hassle out of organising a group golf holiday, offering a personalised service that takes care of all the small details and ensuring a stress-free trip.''
