Golfbreaks.ie Inspection Trip to Lagos!

Introduction

It’s Michael here….. I’m new to the Golfbreaks.ie team. It has been a pleasure to have joined up with Golfbreaks.ie, having worked in the golf industry for years and being a big fan of the game I feel I have a lot to offer and I’m really looking forward to dealing with more Irish golfers. Being new to the Golfbreaks.ie team it was important for me to get to know our golf holiday destinations, this started with an inspection trip to the Algarve.

This blog details of my first trip to the Algarve, with Lagos under the spotlight….

It is late February in Ireland and we’ve been hit with consistent stormy weather week in & week out since the turn of the year. Only the most hardened of golfers will have braved the testing conditions on their home course, that is when they were even open to play.

In comparison the Algarve is a mild 14 degrees on arrival at 9pm into Faro Airport, with blue skies and 20 degrees of heat during the day, it sure is a striking contrast! My visit was intended to get to know all the best golfing destinations in the Algarve. First stop Lagos…..

Staying in Lagos

Lagos is not short on great accommodation to stay in. The best located hotel is the Tivoli Lagos hotel, located right in the heart of the town, the 4 star hotel has a traditional feel, reflecting the local culture & it the most popular choice for golfing groups.

I stayed at The Marina Club Lagos Resort which has 88 well decked out spacious apartments. Located right on the marina overlooking the sea, it is about a 10-15 minute walk to the town of Lagos. The hotel offers great package deals with Palmares golf course & I for one couldn’t fault it.

Another option a little further out from the town is the Vila Gale Lagos Hotel, opened in 2009, offers a real modern decor with a fashion theme throughout the hotel & really high end amenities inside.

All our accommodation in Lagos is available here.

After my visit to the Algarve it is easy to see why it is such a popular golf destination as a whole, with no shortage of great golfing hotspots and Lagos can certainly be put down as one too.
