After months on the ‘red carpet’, the Algrave is ready to roll out the 'greens carpet' and greet UK golfers returning to the region’s famous fairways with open arms following the lifting of quarantine travel restrictions to Portugal after the COVID-19 lockdown.
Players heading to the Algarve over the coming months are guaranteed a warm welcome and outstanding golf on courses in optimum condition at what is one of the best times of year to play.
Playing golf in the Algarve has never been safer, with each golf venue following strict public health guidelines, golf courses, hotels and tourist businesses widely approved by the Portuguese authorities’ ‘Clean and Safe’ accreditation and Portugal approved as a ‘Safe Travels’ destination by the World Travel Tourism Council.
The sun-drenched Portuguese golfing hotspot, with 43 fabulous courses along the coastline, has been a firm favourite with golfers across the UK and Europe for the last five decades – and was voted the world’s favourite golf destination 2020 by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO).
A spokesperson for Algarve Tourism said: “Everyone has worked extremely hard to make Portugal and the Algarve one of the safest places to visit in Europe, and we’re thrilled to be able to welcome UK golfers back after so many months away.
“While some things in the world may have changed after the Covid-19 lockdown, we can reassure golfers that our courses remain as good as ever and our message is clear - put months of lockdown and quarantine behind you and enjoy some of Europe’s top-ranked courses in a part of the world that is a golfing paradise.”
