More Rounds Played In The Algarve Last Year

19th February 2012: Golf Algarve Property News

More than a million rounds of golf were played on Algarve courses in 2011, up 4.9% on the previous year, cementing the region’s reputation as one of the top golfing destinations in Europe.

The figures, released by Turismo do Algarve, show that the majority of golfing visitors still come from the UK, followed by Germany, Scandinavia, Ireland and the Netherlands.

Such tourism is vital to the economy of the Algarve, with the golf season filling a gap after the summer season has ended and providing golf courses, hotels, restaurants and shops with much-needed custom.

The peak seasons for golf are March, April and October, and October last year saw 131,189 rounds played, 5,165 or 4.1% more than the same month in 2010.
