Overview Of Affordable Golf Courses You Should Play In Portugal

A Penny Saved

We are living in uncertain economic times. Even though the country has recently come out of a recession, people are still looking to save money. Golf can be an expensive hobby when compared to other sports. Many golfers are just as passionate about saving money as they are about hitting solid iron shots. You don't have to choose between having money or enjoying a golf holiday in Portugal; you can have both.

Championship Golf Courses

For some golfers, the course they play on is not that important. These golfers just like working on their swing so they don't need the best championship course. It might shock you that some of the most exclusive golf courses in the Portugal can be cheap, but only if you are flexible with your dates. It is possible to pay budget prices while playing championship courses and staying at 5 star resorts.

Here is a selection of affordable golf courses in Portugal for some unbelievably low prices:

  • Balaia
  • 9-hole par-3 for £25. Bring your best short game because you will have to pitch and putt well.

  • Benamour
  • 18-holes that offers alternate views of the Atlantic Ocean and the hills of Serra do Caldeirao. With strategic placed bunkers, occasional water hazards and tree lined fairways, you'll need to be straight. £35 per round.

  • Espiche
  • 18-hole, par 72 with lakes, streams, tight fairways and large undulating greens. £40 per round.

  • Quinta da Ria £38
  • 18-hole designed by Rocky Roquemore is the sister golf course to Quinta de Cima. This course was designed to blend in to the local Nature Reserve.

Other Ways To Save in Golf

If you've maximized your savings on green fees, what are some of the other ways you can save money on your golfing holiday? One way is by walking the full 18-holes and saving money on a golf buggy. You'll get a good workout and have more money in your wallet. Another way to save is to bring your own clubs rather than having to rent clubs from the golf course. Meals and drinks at the golf course can often be expensive, so you can save a lot by packing your own lunch and fitting it in your golf bag. You'll have more energy on the course because of stable blood sugar levels, and you'll enough money for a second 18 holes that afternoon.
