Portugal is synonymous with golf, with a remarkable collection of first-class championship courses and amazing resorts strung along the sun-kissed coastline.
However, it is not just golf that makes the Country so popular, the combination of great year-round weather, gorgeous sandy beaches and vibrant local culture make Portugal a top option for holidaymakers all over the world.
Filmed at Quinta do Lago Resort in the Algarve, this 3 Hole Golf Challenge pits a the SKY SPORTS Pundit vs a club golfer, Rory from Your Golf Travel...but there's a twist!
Rory won’t be taking any shots but he is armed with 3 Wildcards, which will hopefully trip Nick up along the way.
Rory takes to the North Course at Quinta do Lago Golf Resort in Portugal. He has set himself a Stableford Points Golf Challenge.
Can he play well enough to score 36 points through 18 holes on one of the Best Golf Courses in Portugal?
Rory is joined by his colleagues at the Quinta do Lago Mini Golf course for a Mini Golf Battle... Boys vs Girls, Fourball Better Ball Putting Challenge!
Which team will win?
Quinta Do Lago is one of the most beautiful resorts in the Algarve and with three championship courses to choose from, it's an easy choice in my eyes when deciding where to play in this golfing mecca. For me, the South Course topped the trio and the 16th is a great signature hole; a Par 4, slight dogleg left to approach a stunning backdrop. It's a great example of quintessential Algarve golf.
After your round if you're looking for somewhere to wine and dine, my favourite place is absolutely Bovino Steakhouse - great atmosphere, great food, great wine and if you head up to the rooftop it has incredible views of the area too.
