The Algarve has made it a magnificent seven after sealing another double success at the Today’s Golfer Travel Awards, and its seventh since the awards were launched in 2011.
The Portuguese golfing hotspot retained the two major honours it landed in 2017 after readers of the popular UK golf publication voted it as Best Golf Destination – and Best Value – in Continental Europe.
The sun-drenched region, which boasts 43 fabulous courses, claimed the top prize as Europe’s leading golf destination for the first time last year and maintained its place at the top of the pile with more than 60 per cent of the vote.
Additionally, value for money is still a huge factor in attracting the Algarve’s visitors as it landed almost 40 per cent of the vote to land the Best Value award for the fifth time.
Readers cast their votes in their thousands in the seventh edition of the awards to ensure their favourite courses and venues received recognition. (…)
Congratulations to the Algarve, which celebrated more success and continues to be recognised by our readers for its outstanding qualities as a golf destination. It remains the number one choice among UK golfers.
Maria Manuel Delgado e Silva, Algarve tourism golf product manager, said: “We have welcomed record numbers of visiting golfers from the UK in recent years and we remain committed to delivering the excellence that golfers expect from a destination like the Algarve.
