Palmares Golf
18 Holes
Par 72
6,945 yards

Considered to be one of the Algarves finest courses and is often known as the “Jewel in the Crown”. This stunning course offers a delightful combination of links and parkland golf and consists of three nine-hole loops Alvor, Lagos & Praia each with their varied characteristics. “Alvor” has a parkland feel with mature trees and fantastic views over to the Monchique hills. The majority of the holes ascend hillsides and descend through valleys. The “Lagos” course includes a similar parkland character and includes the only two water features throughout the course, the short Par 3 third and the long Par 4 sixth. Finally the “Praia” course offers the links experience including four seaside holes with the closing hole being an uphill Par 5 from the dunes, through a deep valley the green below the clubhouse.

Transfer Time 5 mins (approx)

Espiche Golf
18 Holes
Par 71
6411 yards

This sympathetically designed golf course encompasses the beautiful undulating natural Algarve countryside and will provide a challenge for golfers of all abilities. The course requires careful thought, as bunkers guard most greens and the large undulating greens will demand a soft hand with the putter. Each hole is a delightful test and represents a new challenge. The first hole, which descends some 24 meters in height from the tee, before rising again to the same height on the green, gives players an idea of the style of golf on the Espiche Golf course. The third hole is the biggest test of the first 9 holes, with a 440 yard climb to the end. The 7 and 8th both provide birdie opportunities.
The tenth hole, a par 5, is one of the best in the Algarve and challenges golfers in their approach to the fairway, which becomes progressively narrower near the green.

Transfer Time 15 mins (approx)

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 – See Whats Included Section for full details
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. Gentlemen are required to wear long trousers at dinner.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 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 % add on.

Passports & 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; Portugal Foreign Advice
