Featuring great-value golf courses in an outstanding setting, Lisbon is a golfers’ dream and players from the UK and Europe can experience some of the Portuguese capital’s finest venues when they take part in the 2017 ORIZONTE Lisbon Golf Trophy.
Following the international success of the inaugural event two years ago, the tournament will be staged for the third time in the Costa Azul region, south of Lisbon, from the 6th to the 10th of March 2017, with four-night packages including three rounds of golf available for €547 per person.
Prices include bed-and-breakfast accommodation at the four-star Sana Sesimbra Hotel, with tournament rounds played at Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club as well as Aroeira I and II, with the star prize for the overall winner will be of a 4 Nights + 3GF for two people staying at the Sana Sesimbre Hotel.
Competition for men and women will take place across two handicap categories with plenty of prizes on offer in category one (handicaps to 18.4) and two (handicaps to 36), plus awards for the longest drive and nearest the pin.
A welcome drink, lunch with a wine-cellar visit and a wine tasting as well as a prize-giving lunch are also included. While transfers are included, golfers can relax and save additional costs on car hire.
ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf brings together six well-established but unsung layouts to the south of Lisbon in the natural beauty of the Costa Azul region, and one further 9-hole course in Oeiras, just 10 minutes from the city centre.
With the Lisbon area already a very popular destination for golfers from northern Europe, ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf is an exciting new brand that has launched to showcase some of the finest courses in close proximity to Portugal’s capital city.
Among the courses on offer is Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club, a host to several European Challenge Tour events; the 7,000-plus yards challenge of Santo Estevão, two courses at Aroeira, designed by Frank Pennink and Donald Steel, and two more challenging courses set within an ancient cork oak forest at Ribagolfe.
These wonderful courses are already held in significant regard, being internationally recognised by golf professionals and the golf press, and now many more travelling golfers are set to benefit from the special environments that exist in the region for playing golf.
ORIZONTE represents a unique offering of challenging and well-maintained courses, welcoming clubhouses, unique natural environments, a mild year-round climate and exceptional value for money – all at only a two hour flight from the UK and with a variety of great places to stay.
