Albufeira Golf Break Deals: 5 Ways To Cut Your Expenses

Humble beginnings

You might find it hard to believe looking at the town today, with it's bustling nightlife and array of restaurants, but Albufeira was once a sleepy coastal village on the Southern coast of the Algarve where locals fished and lived the good life. Since then the town has grown to a population of 40,000 and the beaches where the local fishermen worked are now home to tourists and sun seekers from Northern Europe.

Golf on the cheap

Many golfers are just as creative at saving money on golf deals as they are about getting the ball out of the trees and in the hole. To help them get great value out of their Albufeira golf experience, we have complied 5 top tips that will save money:

  1. Get cheap flights
  2. British Airways, Thomas Cook Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and Emirates are just a few airline companies who have recently the airlines formed partnerships with golf travel websites. These alliances can often mean big savings if you book your flights and golf together.

  3. Go out of season
  4. The prime time for visiting Albufeira to play golf is June to September. If you have work flexibility in your life and you can work around the children's holidays, you will enjoy prices 40-70% cheaper than normal.

  5. Save on accommodation
  6. Because there are more hotel rooms in the Algarve than tourists, the hotels will be willing to drop their prices if they have a bunch of empty rooms. Hotel Brisa Sol and the Real Bellavista are two good options to start with.

  7. Find golf deals
  8. The Hotel Balaia Golf Resort and Village has a golf academy where you can get lessons for cheaper than you would in the UK. You can save on green fees by playing just 9 holes instead of 18. Also, the more members there are in your group (3-ball or 4-ball) the lower your green fees will be.

  9. Save on food
  10. Get self-catered accommodation and cook all of your meals rather than eating at the hotel or eating out every night. You might not be Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay but your family will appreciate the effort. The Albufeira region of the Algarve has many exotic fruits and seafood options so with a little creativity you can create dishes that you've never heard of before.
