August is great for many reasons; the temperature is at its highest (most of the time!), the kids are still off school and we’re getting invites to neighbours BBQ’s left, right and centre. August also marks National Golf Month so we’ve chosen our favourite hotels that offer a combination of golfing facilities and beautiful beaches…
Golf has been a big part of The Algarve since the 1920’s and the first traditional grass course was built by Sir Henry Cotton in 1966. The course still exists in the grounds of the 5* Le Meridien Penina Golf & Resort in Alvor.
