vilamoura-golfThe Algarve and Vilamoura in particular have long been among the most popular golf holiday destinations in Europe and across the globe and for good reason. An endless procession of top class golf courses that cater for golfers of all abilities are the main draw for golfers looking for a bit of fun in the sun but high quality accommodation options along with white sandy beaches, an vibrant nightlife and the charms of the local towns and villages are also on the menu.

One of the best and most popular destinations on the Algarve is Vilamoura. This is the place to be when you are heading to the Algarve for a well deserved golf break thanks to the top class accommodation and amenities available at venues such as Vila Gale Ampalius, Marina and Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Beach as well as the outstanding array of golf courses including the famous Oceanico 7.

While there is never a bad time to head to Vilamoura, a golf break that coincides with the world famous Ryder Cup, being played in Chicago during September, and top flight events such as the Portugal Masters will make your trip all the more fun, especially with Your Golf Travel’s Vilamoura FORE offers in full flow between the 27th September and the 31st October.



The seven Oceanico courses in and around Vilamoura are among the best in Portugal and cater for a vast range of golfers.


So what is Vilamoura Fore?

Well…we at Your Golf Travel know how much golfers love the Algarve and of course the Ryder Cup. With the biannual match between the cream of the crop from Europe and the USA just a couple of months away we thought we would offer you the chance to sample the best of the Algarve while receiving plenty of Ryder Cup based bonuses along the way.

Head to Vilamoura between the aforementioned dates and you will be treated to 1 in 4 eating and drinking for free in selected venues as well as 1 in 4 eating and drinking for free in O’Neills Irish Bar. O’Neills, one of the most popular sports bars in the whole of the Algarve, will be screening every action packed minute of this year’s Ryder Cup match at the Medinah Country Club in Chicago. Where better to spend the evening blowing the froth off a few beers than perched in front of the Ryder Cup action while on a golf holiday?

It goes without saying then that O’Neill’s will be the place to be in Vilamoura during Ryder Cup week and beyond. This legendary bar, a favourite of the many football and rugby squads at the world famous Brown’s Training Camp nearby, sends all its staff to the Guinness factory in Dublin to learn how to serve the best possible pint of “The Black Stuff”…now that shows dedication to providing a great time for all!

O’Neill’s also boasts great live music, scrumptious food and a unique atmosphere, making it the most in-demand spot in Vilamoura’s famous marina area. Unless you are planning to jet off to Medinah Country Club in Chicago for the Ryder Cup, Vilamoura it seems is the place to be for some fun in the sun this autumn.
