The Algarve, Europe’s leading golf destination, has continued its surge in popularity after revealing a five-figure increase in the number of golf rounds played on its famous courses in the first quarter of 2015.
Helped not only by a fantastic climate, but also, more recently, with success in communicating with golfers across the spectrum through content-rich social media campaigns, the picturesque region continues to attract golfers in their thousands.
Additionally, the British pound has strengthened more than 20 per cent against the euro in the last 12 months, so UK golfers are approaching the 2015 season with gusto in the knowledge they will receive even greater value for money in the Algarve this year.
A spokesperson for the Associação Turismo do Algarve (ATA) said: “We are delighted that holidaymakers are continuing to choose the Algarve as their ‘go-to’ golf destination.
“Algarve’s golf tourism industry works hard to ensure our guests get the most out of our distinct offering by providing unforgettable experiences that will remain etched in the memory, and we feel these latest figures are testament to the success we are achieving. We’ll continue to provide exceptional levels of service.”
The Algarve’s sun-drenched climate boasts more than 300 days of sunshine per year, extending the golf season by several months and bringing players from all over the world to the region. It will celebrate its 50th anniversary as a golf destination in 2016.
