TAP Golf Tournaments are back!

Do you enjoy a good round of golf? You can find excellent courses in Portugal set in dazzling scenery, a mild climate all year round and the hospitality and friendliness of the Portuguese people.

It’s no surprise that the first edition of World Golf Awards in 2014 chose Portugal as the "Best Place" for golf lovers. Thanks to great weather, beautiful landscapes, hotels and course conditions, the country is a first option when it comes to enjoy golfing.

There are around eighty golf courses, with different layouts and levels of difficulty. But the greatest challenge is to resist the beauty and light of the surrounding landscape and remain focused. It will not be easy!

The best courses in the country are in the southern region of Algarve, between Vila Nova de Cacela and Vilamoura, with several perfect greens to practise all year round.

39th TAP Open Golf

The 39th TAP Open Golf Tournament is going to be held between 12 and 19 November, in Vilamoura (Algarve). Golfers will play at four of the best golf courses of Portugal.

As usual, we are going to have a fantastic week of social events, ranging from a Welcome Dinner, a wine tasting party to a superb Gala Dinner. The hotels this year are the Crowne Plaza – a five-star hotel, and the four-star hotel Vila Galé Ampalius, both in Vilamoura, near the marina. 

The competition is open to all national and foreign golfers affiliated with the FPG or one of its partners, who have a handicap that is certified by their home club. The maximum handicap for all players is 28.0 (EGA); however, players with valid handicaps above this level may be permitted to participate.

Each year the TAP Open, which is classed as one of the best tournaments of its type, is played by many golf lovers from the five continents and who TAP offers special conditions to.
