    Quinta da Ria Golf Club (Location of coaching on the Sunday and golf on the Tuesday)

    The Quinta da Ria course is a wonderful golf course located on a cliff overlooking the most beautiful inlet of the Ria Formosa nature reserve and the Atlantic Ocean.  The absence of building sites and excellent green keeping make it an excellent golf course to play and to enjoy the spectacular views.  The course comprises of two loops of 9 holes. Five lakes present various challenges as the round unfolds.  The greens are undulating and well protected by bunkers. More than 300 trees, such as olive and carob trees have been transplanted in order to maintain the ancient border of the Quinta da Ria Golf Course and the typical features of the region landscape.

    Benamor Golf Club 

    Designed by Sir Henry Cotton, Benamor Golf is a superb 18-hole Golf Course located on the South of Portugal, Algarve, just a few kilometres east of the ancient city of Tavira.  The fairways of Bermuda Sahara and cool-season grasses provide good lies for wood and iron shots. The golf course was completed in the spring of 2000. In the nearby foothills of Barrocal, you will enjoy some of the best mountain and sea views the Algarve has to offer. But maybe most enjoyable of all, are the peaceful surroundings of a construction free resort. Possibly the only one on the Algarve.
