Handicap Players

2 VidaMar Resort Hotel Algarve - Aereal.jpg

Golf Schedule 5 Rounds:

  • 2 x Salgados
  • 1 x Morgado
  • 1 x Oceanico Faldo
  • 1 x Oceanico O'Connor

Handicap certificates are required.

Please note - in January the Bermuda grass used on a number of courses on the Algarve can become dormant and while changing the colour of the grass, this does not affect the playing conditions of the course.

Salgados

18 holes, 6079 metres, Par 72

This pleasurable, links-style course situated at Herdate dos Salgados close to the city of Albufeira, is set next to an attractive nature reserve, home to many endangered bird species. With a long sandy beach on one side and greens and tees located close to each other, makes this a walkable course with impressive views over the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the sea breeze, a round here is never the same and offers a challenge for even the most practiced golfers. The yellow tees will ensure golfers an even test, while the white tees are recommended for golfers with single-digit handicap.

Transfer to golf course -  5 minutes

Morgado

18 holes, 6433 metres, Par 73

Set in peaceful parkland within a valley, inland between Portimao and Monchique, this par 73 has characteristics of a links course with flat fairways and Scottish inspired bunkers. The fairways are generous with large greens to put your putting skills to the test, but be sure to maintain accuracy and avoid the deep bunkers!!!

Transfer time to golf course - 35 minutes

Oceanico Faldo

18 holes, 6598 metres, Par 72

One of the Algarves' more challenging and well maintained courses. It is also home to some spectacular holes over a unique sandstone landscape. The 1st Hole is one of the best opening holes in Portugal where par or bogey is very satisfying. While the 4th with its elevated tee overlooking the course features a ferociously protected green.

The greens are well protected whether it be by sand, water or small little swales that run off them. Sir Nick does "encourage" you to think your way round his course.

Transfer time to golf course - 18 minutes

Oceanica O'Connor

18 holes, 6598 metres, Par 72

Christy O'Connor has created a very enjoyable resort course and while it has considerably more water coming into play than its sister course,  it is an easier 18 holes to negotiate and none the worse for it! It is not a short course and allows you to take out the "big stick" on all the Par 4 and Par 5's. The Par 3's are enjoyable and not overly long. On the back 9 there is a series of risk and reward holes, which if you play to your handicap a very good score is likely to come your way. Beautifully maintained, this really is a very pleasant 18 holes.

Transfer time to golf course - 18 minutes

Golf Handicaps

This trip is for golfers with a handicap of 36 or lower for ladies and 28 or lower for gentlemen.

Please advise our Reservations team of your handicap at the time of booking, alternatively you can add this to the special requirements box on our booking page. If you have a certificate please ensure you take it with you on the trip, this enables the Tour Leader to assess everyone’s ability, so that rounds and competitions can be organised fairly.

If you are uncertain about these requirements please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to advise you.

Golf Club Insurance
Clients will most probably find that their golf clubs are covered on their household insurance policy. Most policies cover a single item such as golf clubs for a period out of the country. However, clients should make very sure that they do have cover. If not, Solo’s Holidays insurance includes cover for golf clubs and bag.

Buggy, Trolley & Club Hire
Most golf clubs have these items available for hire, however this is not always the case, so clients would be advised to check with us beforehand if they have any specific requirements.

Golf Footwear
Golf shoes with soft spikes are required.

Carriage of Clubs
We advise you to use a light golf bag when packing your clubs. We suggest you wrap a towel round the neck of the clubs to protect them and stop them rattling around whilst in transit. It is also important to then place the bag and clubs in an outer carrying bag, which can be purchased from any good golf shop.

What to Wear
Golf attire during the day. We suggest smart casual for the evenings.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €20.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.

Passports and visas
A full 10-year passport is required valid for at least the duration of your stay. Holders of passports with the inscription “British Citizen” or “European Union” do not require a visa.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct visa, a valid passport and any other travel documents for your holiday. All information provided relates to British citizens who hold or are entitled to apply for a British passport. For the most up-to-date visa information please visit; Portgual Foreign Advice

If you are not a British citizen and do not hold a British passport, you must make your own enquiries as to the applicable requirements. Alternatively, you can apply for your Visa with our preferred partner the Travel Visa company by selecting the following link; Travel Visa Company.
