How I Had A Vacation At Tivoli Victoria Golf Resort
The increase in the popularity of golf in recent decades led to a great deal of investment in new courses and the facilities that can satisfy golfers’ needs away from the course. Those countries with a fairly predictable climate, one with warm weather guaranteed throughout the summer months have been keen to take advantage of the demand for quality courses and accommodation to match.
A golfing holiday in a foreign country is a treat in itself. Unfamiliar surroundings test even very proficient golfers.
The Tivoli Victoria Golf Resort in Vilamoura is an example of a complex that meets everything a golfer might want. The airport in Faro is less than half an hour away. The Oceanico Vilamoura golf courses test the best of golfers but are still offer the mid-handicap golfer a challenge that he or she will enjoy.
A holiday for a single week gives plenty of opportunity to enjoy a few rounds of golf as well as well a hotel and the surrounding area has to offer. Few holidaymakers play golf on their first day. Having flown into Faro and taken the short drive to the Hotel there is time to unpack and settle in.
The First Adventure
If the first game is mid-morning the next day, the aim should be an early breakfast and then some practice hitting a few irons and hopefully holing a few putts. It is important to be warmed up because the pleasure of a golfing holiday does involve playing reasonably well. It is not always easy on a course seen for the first time.
A Day Off
Day three is probably another game, possibly on one of the other available courses. Perhaps during the middle of the week it may be a day exploring the area. In the Algarve it is certainly worth going to the beach and swimming in waters that are likely to be warmer than at home.
Back to Golf
Two more rounds can finish the week off nicely.
The 3 local courses are just a short walk away. One, the Victoria was designed by Arnold Palmer. The other three are the Millennium and the Laguna. The Hotel is able to make all the arrangements, tee-times included, and the changing rooms are close to the Victoria. There are discounts available for group bookings and the opportunity to play on other courses throughout the Algarve with everything arranged by the Hotel.
The Hotel’s immediate vicinity provides plenty away from the courses. There are bars and restaurants, the Marina and wonderful beaches. Shopping is well catered for and there is the Vilamoura Casino for night-time. A great week!
