Among the stunning awards already awarded, Portugal is also named the World’s Best Golf Destination and the Best Golf Destination in Europe for five years between 2014 and 2018. With Portugals mild temperature throughout the year, Algarve and Lisbon sees some major competitions on the professional circuit further cementing it’s reputation as a golfing haven.
