Algarve Family Golf Holidays
One of the things that regular visitors to Portugal’s most southern coastline will have noticed is a distinct lack of Algarve Family Golf Holidays. A number of well known golf resorts along the Algarve are now seeking to change all this. With the advent of a worldwide financial downturn, golfing families can now enjoy a week long golfing holiday with complimentary rounds for the kids from under €1,500 at Easter or during the summer, normally the most expensive times of the season.
It is a fact of life these days that golf courses along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines are struggling to fill their properties so now may be a very good time to take advantage of some of the offers this has brought to the table.
Although many families enjoy playing golf together, Algarve Family Golf Holidays are still quite thin on the ground. To plug this gap in the market a number of companies have launched what are termed ‘great value family golfing holidays where the kids are offered complimentary golf rounds.’ These Family Golf Breaks are offered along the coastline of the Algarve. Golf rounds or additional rounds for juniors are complimentary if accompanied by a paying adult, junior green fee without a paying adult are normally in the region of €40 so it could be quite a saving if you’ve a number of kids that wish to play.
The Algarve Family Golf Holidays generally include seven nights’ accommodation, two rounds of golf for each parent, two complimentary golf rounds for each child (under 17 years old), complimentary buggies (subject to availability), an experience on another 9 hole, par 3 course and free use of available recreational sports facilities.
