Lisbon is alight with colour and gothic drama, and is a truly beautiful city. Famous for custard tarts, gorgeously designs paving stones and seven hills topped with lofty terraces known as miradouros from which you can view the city sprawling beneath, even without golf, lisbon is a must-see. The fact that it is surrounded by some of the best golf courses in Europe is the cherry on top, and makes a golf break to Lisbon all the more worthwhile.
Our pick for the best golf course near Lisbon (if not the best golf course in Portugal) is Praia D’El Rey, 1 hour northwest along the coast from the custard tarts and architecture of Lisbon, and not far from the stunning walled hilltop town of Obidos. The course is a beautiful mixture of lush vegetation, beachy sand dunes, and links-style challenges.
Off The Course
Off the course, the whole of Lisbon lies before you: however, if we had to pick one thing to do it would undoubtedly be Sintra. Like a page torn from a magical story, Sintra is disneyland’s European cousin, minus the princesses. Sintra is filled with beautiful gardens, lush forests and sparkling palaces, and it is the perfect place to get lost after your game.
When choosing the best time for your golf holiday to Lisbon, remember that average temperatures rarely fall below double figures throughout the year, meaning that you are almost guaranteed sun and heat throughout your game. The best time to golf in Lisbon therefore depends on you. For great weather and fewer crowds however, we recommend visiting between March and May.
