This week’s blog is a guide to a couple of the best properties and their golf courses that we have on offer for groups. Besides great value, these properties offer excellent golf either on-site or within the local area, lovely facilities and the atmosphere that you would want from a resort that you were staying at for your next group golf escape.

Islantilla Golf Resort is a brilliant four-star hotel which boasts an excellent location just next to the fantastic 27-hole Islantilla golf course and only 10 minutes’ walk from the beach. There are plenty of things to do at the resort besides playing golf including two paddle tennis courts and a spa to relax in. As there are four restaurants within the resort, you will never be short of somewhere excellent to eat and drink as there is something that will appeal to everyone. There is the varied buffet restaurant, an Andalusian grill bar which is open during high season by the pool. You can also enjoy the Italian restaurant and the Beach Club where you can sit and enjoy a bite to eat and a few drinks on the lounge-terrace overlooking the sea. This is an excellent hotel with stylish rooms, a pleasant atmosphere, excellent facilities and great golf as well as its brilliant beach club where you can find a pool, watersports and a beach bar.

Islantilla is a great 27-hole complex just an hours’ drive from Faro Airport and is regarded as one of Southern Spain’s finest courses. All three of the nine loops meander through pinewoods and many of the holes boast stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. The beauty of having three different 9-hole layouts is that you can choose to play the two loops that take your fancy or the ones that are most suited to your golfing ability. Each and every one of the 27-holes at Islantilla is kept in perfect condition all year round and you are sure to have a superb golfing experience here. With three different loops of 9-hole which are all excellent, a brilliant resort to enjoy and beautiful weather on the Costa de la Luz for many months of the year, it is no surprise that we highly recommend Islantilla Golf Resort for your next group golf break.

The four-star Magnolia Hotel boasts a fantastic location situated in the surroundings of the prime golf destination of Quinta do Lago which means that it is close to some of the finest golf courses, most beautiful beaches and great shops in the Algarve. Each of the 74 stylish and well-appointed guest rooms is equipped with air-conditioning, modern amenities and private balconies. The hotel’s poolside restaurant is the ideal place to enjoy brunch, lunch or dinner where you will be served a variety of different local dishes as well as international favourites. At the bar, you can enjoy cocktails and other beverages either at the indoor bar or poolside. Whilst you are not enjoying a round on one of the excellent Quinta do Lago golf courses, you can spend time relaxing by the heated outdoor pool, workout in the gym or on the tennis court or relax in the hotel’s sauna and steam room.

The highly acclaimed Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo courses are just a short drive from the hotel which makes this an ideal option for a great stay-and-play golf break to the Algarve. Quinta do Lago Laranjal was originally an orange grove but today it is a stunning 18-hole championship golf course where you can enjoy a challenging round of golf with its undulating fairways, large lakes and well-defined greens. This is a superb golf course where accuracy is key if you are hoping for a good scorecard.

Quinta do Lago North has undergone extensive redevelopments alongside Paul McGinley and it has been developed into a superb course with some very impressive holes. In particular, the finishing holes offer you the chance to take some great risks and maybe get rewarded if you play well!

Last, but not least, is Quinta do Lago South which is one of the most requested courses on the Algarve and is perfect if you are a long but accurate hitter. With stunning surroundings, many water hazards and weaving fairways in and out of the pine trees, this is a challenge but an excellent round of golf for those of all abilities. With these three excellent golf courses as well as the other facilities and excellent accommodation options within the resort, we hope that you consider this excellent resort for your next group golf escape to the Algarve.

This week’s blog is a guide to the best resorts for your next group golf holiday. When you’re planning a group golf holiday you have to make sure there is some fantastic golf, great bars and excellent restaurants for you to enjoy during the holiday. Spring is a perfect time to go on your next group golf break where you can enjoy the bright and dry weather that England rarely offers us at that time of year!

voyage

Voyage Belek Golf & Spa is arguably one of the best resorts for groups and with Turkey’s climate you are almost guaranteed some fantastic weather from April through to October! This 5-star, all-inclusive resort offers everything you could need for a fantastic group holiday from the spa to the private beach to the fact that you can play two superb nearby courses – Montgomerie Maxx Royal and Titanic Golf Club. The resort boasts a wide range of different eating a drinking options with eight restaurants serving specialities from Mexican to Japanese to traditional Turkish dishes. There are also nine bars for you to all relax in after 18-holes on one of the golf courses or just if you fancy a few after dinner drinks! All of the rooms are beautifully furnished with a flat-screen TV each as well as private balconies for you to enjoy stunning views across the Mediterranean Sea or the golf course. The Voyage is a great resort for your next group golf break because of everything it has to offer in terms of a range of facilities, activities and the golf in the surrounding area is fantastic. With all of this as well as a great spa area and five swimming pools you cannot deny that this is a perfect destination for your next golf holiday as there truly is something for everyone!

montgomerie

The Montgomerie Maxx Royal Golf Course has a fantastic layout making it one of the most popular courses in the Belek region. It’s a fantastic course with water featuring heavily throughout the round making it a tricky one! The 18th is certainly something to look forward to on this course as you will require accuracy in your shot to get to the well-protected green at the end. This course is a scenic one with wide fairways meandering through forests of pine and eucalyptus trees and is certainly one not to be missed. Voyage guests get prime tee times and discounted green fees at this course and if that doesn’t seal the deal for you then nothing will!

titanic

Titanic Golf Club is another beautiful course that you can play when staying at the Voyage and has 27 great holes for you to play. This course has a real mixture of holes from beachside ones to parkland to links style holes! This is a lovely course to play and can be a real test of ability!

tivoli-marina-portimao

Another great resort for your group golfing holiday is the Tivoli Marina Portimão which is situated on the Algarve. This stunning 4-star hotel is situated in the centre of the marina in Portimão just three-minutes’ walk from the beach and five-minutes’ from Praia de Rocha. There are three fantastic courses within close proximity to the hotel – Alamos, Morgado and Salgados – so you will never be short of somewhere to have a good round of golf! Each of the studio apartments that you can stay in feature a kitchenette so it is possible to do a little self-catering if you don’t want to venture out for dinner or to one of the hotel’s two restaurants. If there are some of the group less into golf, then they can enjoy being in such a central location or just use the hotel’s swimming pools and fitness rooms whilst the others are golfing!

real-bellavista

Also situated on the Algarve is the Real Bellavista Hotel & Spa which is another resort to consider when you are thinking about your next group golfing holiday. This resort boasts an ideal location as it is so close to the centre of Albufeira which is well known for its busy nightlife and wide range of restaurants and bars. The hotel’s rooms are all spacious and fully-fitted with everything you would expect from a hotel of this standard and there is also a spa and health club for those of the group who may not want to go on all the golfing excursions! With all of this and the fact that there are several golf courses within close proximity of the hotel this definitely is a resort we recommend for the perfect group golf break.

melis-villaitana

Hotel Melia Villaitana is a 4-star hotel situated just 20 minutes from Alicante and just between two fabulous golf courses. The hotel offers a wonderful spa area, outdoor swimming pools and an artificial beach all for guests to enjoy at their leisure. The hotel is designed to replicate an old Mediterranean village and all of the rooms have private balconies or terraces as well as a satellite TV. There are a range of restaurants for you to enjoy at the hotel but Alicante is a short drive away where you can find more restaurants, bars and nightlife to enjoy! The Villaitana courses are simply stunning and will provide great rounds for guests at the hotel. This is another fantastic option for your next group golf holiday to Spain and although you can venture out to get the nightlife and bars the actual hotel is a little quieter and more exclusive than other busier resorts.

mar-menor

Mar Menor Golf Resort boasts some beautiful and well-appointed apartments which are perfect for when you are travelling as a group here. They are all spacious with well-equipped kitchens and either a private balcony or terrace for you to relax out on. The Residences give you that option of self-catering which can be great for when you are travelling as a group rather than eating out all the time but there are plenty of options for food and drink nearby as well! This is a great destination for your next golf break as there are a wide range of different courses within such close proximity of the hotel as well as the well-known Mar Menor course on-site!
