Portugal Golf – Fauna: golf courses are safety

Fauna: golf courses are safety

Golf courses represent safety for all animals, whether they are “residents” or just passing through during migratory seasons.

There are golf courses that are authentic “reserves” due to the diversity and quantity of animals that visitors may observe while playing.

In the lakes of the S. Lourenço golf course (Quinta do Lago), next to the Ria Formosa, hundreds of birds can be seen all year round, and during the migration period, thousands of them stop off there, like at an airport… (the observation posts around the course are always very popular).

At Castro Marim Golf the diversity of birds is abundant, but the majority are rabbits and partridges, as on many other courses in the Algarve.

At this time of year, the golf courses with many fig trees (Palmares, Vale do Lobo, Vale da Pinta, Benamor, Quinta da Ria, among others) are a permanent habitat for birds.

Morgado do Reguengo e Álamos (Monchique) is the preferred resort for storks, the dominant species, but there are also frequent encounters with rabbits and partridges. Yesterday afternoon, around the lake bordering Holes 1 and 2 at Álamos, hundreds of storks sought the cool waters.

On all the golf courses, the only species that is not well received, but unfortunately “visits” many, is the wild boar, because of the huge damage it causes.

Golf Holidays Breaks in Algarve

The Algarve, being the most southern province of Portugal, offers a semi-tropical climate, a cold winter and hot, but very pleasant summers, providing conditions for fantastic golf breaks all year round. There are 39 Golf Courses in the Algarve from west to east and almost all of them offer several options for multiple games, “golf packages”, where the player gets advantageous discounts. We have the example of dynamic packages that start from 2 or 3 rounds and offer an additional discount, such as the Vilamoura golf courses or the Amendoeira Resort. Vilamoura also offers Taylor made packages on its 5 golf courses, the traditional Old Course, the emblematic Victoria golf course and the popular Pinhal, Millennium and Laguna golf courses owned by the Dom Pedro group and therefore the options are many and with different types of discounts. A Group of 8 or more golfers have a free round for 1 player. Golf professionals also benefit from amenities and special conditions.

Quinta do Lago also offers combinations of 3, 5 or more rounds on its three golf courses, Laranjal, Quinta do Lago South and North, offering one free player in 16 and special conditions for the golf professionals.

Vale do Lobo on the two golf courses, Ocean and Royal also offer 1 free player in 8, a package of 3 rounds with 1 free round, excellent for those who want to play more than one round of golf at Vale do Lobo golf courses in the centre of the Algarve.

For the best golf holiday, we at Tee Times Golf Agency have around 60 golf packages to choose from all golf courses in the Algarve.

The most important areas of the Algarve for your golf holidays are Vilamoura, Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago, Lagos, Portimao Carvoeiro and Tavira, all of them have a set of very important Golf Courses such as Palmares, Boavista and Espiche, in Lagos.

Portimao has the legendary Penina Golf Course designed by Sir Henry Cotton and the excellent Morgado and Alamos Golf Courses, set in a peaceful environment at the foot of the Monchique mountains. The Morgado golf course, more demanding, recently home of the Portuguese Open and the Alamos golf course shorter but very demanding golf course in the short game, very wavy greens. Two good options in the region. In Carvoeiro, we have the Vale da Pinta & Gramacho golf courses and in Albufeira, the Salgados golf course is a lot of fun and not too far to the north after the highway, golf players can find the amazing Amendoeira Resort, Faldo and O´Connor golf courses and the popular Silves golf course.

In the Tavira area, in the eastern part of the Algarve, we have the best golf course in Portugal, and one of the best in Europe, the Monte Rei North golf course with the signature of Jack Nicklaus.

A little further south two excellent golf courses, Quinta da Ria & Quinta de Cima, plus the Benamor and Castro Marim golf courses, both very popular and pleasant to play and a course designed by the legendary Severiano Ballesteros that is Quinta do Vale, complement the golf offer in Tavira which is quite comprehensive and suitable for all types of players and provide also some great golf holidays in that part of the Algarve.
