Algarve Golf News December 2013

Sun, 1st Dec 2013
December and January in the Algarve are attractive months for golfers as they often have the luxury of thinking that as they play their round that the golf course may belong to them due to the lack of other visible players! The weather is obviously variable, sunny or rainy, and normally quite pleasantly warm for the time of the year, which is a great attraction in comparison with northern Europe. Many of the courses still offer 'Twilight' rates which will start at a time that normally guarantees a full round of play. These discount rates range from as little as € 25.00 up to € 71.00 depending on the chosen course. Alternatively, courses are also offering during the winter period the '2 players and a Buggy' at discounted rates from € 68.00 up to € 158.00.
