Algarve won the "Best Value Golf Destination" (continental Europe) Award By Today’s Golfer
The Algarve has emerged Europe’s top golfing destination in the inaugural Today’s Golfer Travel Awards, claiming the main Best Value Golf Destination (Continental Europe) title.
And the pride of Portugal triumphed in style by receiving an impressive 32% of the total number of votes - Turkey finished runners-up with 19% with long established golfing hotspot the Costal del Sol surprisingly languishing in fourth spot behind fellow Spanish region Costa Brava.
The first TG Travel Awards, held in conjunction with major golf travel operator Your Golf Travel, has been warmly received by golfers from all over the country who voted in their thousands for their favorite destinations, courses and hotels/resorts both in Europe and the UK.
Algarve venues also came out on top in Portugal’s Best Courses and Hotel/Resort categories with Vilamoura’s wonderful Old Course convincingly winning the former and Dona Filipa & San Lorenzo piping another old favorite, Le Meridien Penina, to the latter spoils.

Algarve, a golfing paradise - all year round!
One of the finest golfing destinations in Europe, the Algarve is regarded today as an elite venue by top professionals.
The plans for the courses, mostly designed by internationally recognised golf-course architects, together with the superb landscapes in which they are located, satisfy the requirements of the most demanding enthusiasts, marking out the region as first-rate destination for golf.
The favourable climate with more than 300 days of sun per year, allows the golf season to be extended over several months, bringing players from all over the world to the Algarve.
The excellence on offer in the Algarve is only enriched by its great variety of trees, vegetation, its greens, tees and silence of its surrounds, only to be broken by the ‘crack’ of the perfect shot. Irresistible!
