Algarve Is The Best Golf Destination

Oct 23, 2019

The Algarve is the best golf destination in the world for 2020. The award was given by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators in an event that took place on October 17th in Morocco and awarded the quality of the approximately 40 courses in the region.

 The International Golf Tour Operators Association (IAGTO) represents the global golf tourism industry. More than 700 tour operators from over 60 countries took part in the voting, and the Algarve won the 20th edition of the awards ceremony. To Warmrental, it is not difficult to understand why. The offer is varied and the region is proud to provide a great experience for tourists who practice this sport - whether they are beginners, amateurs, or professionals. Golf courses can be found all over the region, many in reserved areas with stunning sea views that captivate anyone.

This is not the first prize awarded to the Algarve by IAGTO - the Algarve was ranked as the best golf destination in Europe in 2006 and 2014 - but it is certainly the most significant one. The region has attracted more and more amateur and professional golfers from all over the world and its continued commitment to quality and diversity has led to the accumulation of prizes over the last few years.

These are some of the reasons why the Algarve has gathered the preference of globally specialized operators:

  • Quality and diversity of the infrastructures it offers for golfing;
  • Easy access to the region;
  • Cost/benefit ratio;
  • Variety of accommodation options;
  • The natural beauty of the region and its tourist offer;
  • The privileged climate allows the practice of golf all year round.

To the President of the Algarve Tourism Region, João Fernandes, “Not only is the Algarve a must-see place for the amateur golfer, it has attracted the best professionals in the world, thanks to the diversity and recognized quality of the 40 golf courses and the already famous hospitality and professionalism of the agents of the region”.
