Golf tourism with record year
According to the Portuguese Golf Federation the golf tourism has been gaining more and more "weight", reaching in 2016 the best year ever.
The idea is to continue growing and in 2017 beat the figures of the previous year. The most recent statistics point to around 1.2 million rounds
per year, which directly and indirectly represents around 350 million euros in turnover.
The Golf Federation also points out that the Algarve is, together with the South of Spain, the main golf destination in Europe.
"Year after year, it has been winning international awards as the best golf destination because of the quantity and quality of its golf courses,
it joins the high level of hotel capacity and all the reference logistics associated with golf, airport and air links, transfers, animation
and appropriated catering" mention to SOL newspaper, the CEO of NAU Hotels & Resorts, Mário Ferreira.
