Our wide selection of holidays means that we work with lots of wonderful Tour Leaders. We’d like to introduce you to one of our Golf Tour Leaders, Nick, who will be leading our Belek tours in November. Here he talks about playing golf in the famous Algarve and what Belek will have in store for us this winter. 

Meet our Golf Tour Leader Nick

Hi, I’m Nick and I have lived in Vilamoura, the Algarve since 2009. I first started playing golf as a 10-year-old and really enjoyed it but didn't start playing properly until I moved to the Algarve and became a member of Laranjal Golf Club. Apart from Laranjalmy three favourite courses are Palmares in the West Algarve, Monte Rei in the Eastern Algarve and Victoria course in Vilamoura - all of which can be used on Solos Holidays! 

 

 

As a lot of the Solos Golf customers will agree, for me it is the social side of golf that I really enjoy. Spending four hours on the course and then enjoying the rest of the day talking about every shot – as well as the unlimited number of excuses we golfers come up with to explain why we shot a 98 instead of a 72....   

I did my first trip in September 2015 in Spain andup until March of this year, I had completed nearly 40 golf tours. My two favourite locations are Portugal for the quality of courses and Turkey for both the courses and the unbelievable value for money and quality of the hotels. A lot happens on the course, but my most memorable memories as a Tour Leader would be the activities, we participate in on our days off. These include lots of boat trips, one of which was a small boat flotilla trip around Tavira oyster and mussel beds with a group who will forever be known as the Tavira 13.  

The last tour I did with Solos was in March this year. We were in the Eastern Algarve, and luckily, we managed to play all our golf apart from the last day as lockdown had started. With the courses all closed on our last day the hotel, which had slowly emptied during the week, allowed me to set up a 9-hole crazy golf course in the hotel conference room – which was lots of fun! 

I’m really looking forward to returning to Belek in November! I regularly keep in touch with our agent in Belek, Eden, who tells me that the hotels are ensuring all precautions are being taken by both Hotel and Golf courses. Although this hotel and golf courses are new to me, I did visit them when I was in Turkey in March and I can ensure anyone thinking of booking, you are in for a treat 

Hope to see you soon!
