Golf in Lisbon – because Portugal is so much more than just the Algarve
WHEN you initially think of golf in Portugal, the immediate reaction is to think of the Algarve.
The country’s south coast has become one of the best known golf resorts in Europe and perhaps the world.
But there is so much more to golf in Portugal.

A visit to Lisbon on the other hand leaves you with little choice but to join in the party with locals and tourists alike.
