Breakdown by Month
A quiet month in all respects to play golf and with accommodation and course rates being at their cheapest.
Slightly improved temperatures during the month with less rainfall. Also, accommodation remains cheaper with the courses still being generally empty.
This is a month when all the courses start becoming busier with another improvement in the overall weather but with the ideal available tee times on some courses more difficult to book. Courses start their special Easter period promotions.
Courses will enjoy their fourth busiest month of the year usually with their special Easter period promotions. Usually ideal golf playing weather.
The courses during this month enjoy their busiest time and therefore charge their highest green fees and it is essential to pre-book ideal tee times well in advance.
The weather is now usually much hotter so there are often lower priced buggy promotions which are included in the special summer promotions.
The month of July is when the Algarve is at its hottest so early morning or later afternoon tee times are recommended when available using the summer promotions. It is also a month when local organisations and charities hold their competitions.
The month of August is only slightly cooler so early morning or later afternoon tee times are recommended and again using when available summer promotions.
The weather is cooler in which to play and after the 15th of the month most hotels offer lower rates. Until the 15th of this month many courses maintain their less extensive summer promotions rates. After the 16th the courses will be busy so prior booking is recommended.
The beginning of October is the golfing high season and the central Algarve courses are extremely busy so very early booking of tee times is essential.
The month of November can offer many days of great golfing weather - but there is no guarantee! This fact is reflected in the lower green fee rates available.
The quietest month of the year with some courses closed for maintenance. It is also another month when local organisations and charities hold their annual competitions.
