The Portugal Masters sees some of the world’s best players arrive for the 2017 European Tour – firmly establishing the Algarve, in its 11th year, as one of Europe’s top golf destinations.
And the Algarve makes a fine stage to host the biggest (and richest) golf tournament in Portugal!
Offering some of the best golf courses in the world, a lengthy list of designs by famous names includes the tournament’s Victoria, by Arnold Palmer.
The event: Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 September, Victoria GC, Vilamoura
With a prize fund of €2 million, the event attracts a large following and makes the end of September absolutely the best time to book a golf holiday in the Algarve.
Tee-times for rounds will be made available on the week of the tournament, gates open from 7.30am until 6.30pm.
