• Overview

    There are two spring 2019 weeks at the Dona Filipa Resort, this one being the second of the two. The first week starts a week earlier on the 30th March. The two events are slightly different in nature, in relation to the use of the coaching facilities. For this particular week, there will be an hour’s warm up before each round, but no formal Golf Clinics as such. We want this week to be quite relaxed in terms of the format of each day. The previous week however, does feature Golf Clinics, should you prefer the option of having some coaching as part of the week. For the spring San Lorenzo weeks, we therefore want to provide the option of a ‘Golf Week’ as well as a ‘Golf Week with Clinics’

    In addition to the golf, the tour cost also includes two dinners at the Resort, one on the Sunday and one on the Friday.  For all other evenings, we will all dine together on-site at the Resort in their different restaurants, as well as at some local restaurants which are adjacent to the Resort.

    The aim of this particular week is to combine the very finest accommodation and golf in the Algarve, with a thoroughly enjoyable social week.


    Positioned just 200 metres away from the stunning Vale do Lobo beach and in the heart of the Algarve is the luxurious 5 star Dona Filipa Golf Resort. Surrounded by lush golf courses, pinewoods and the breath taking vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, the Dona Filipa Hotel has been welcoming elite guests for many, many years. The hotel is the ideal place for a luxury Algarve week of golf. Guests can take full advantage of the numerous and outstanding leisure facilities, from tennis courts to three bars and restaurants, a heated outdoor swimming pool and numerous massage and beauty treatments.


    San Lorenzo Golf Club     

    San Lorenzo Golf Course was designed by the American golf architect Joseph Lee and the beautiful Bermuda grass fairways provide perfect playing conditions. For the 25th year in a row, the golf course has been named one of the Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe. The ranking, awarded by the industry leading Golf World Magazine, further cements San Lorenzo’s position at the very pinnacle of European golf.

    The course was opened in 1988 and takes advantage of wonderful topography on the Quinta do Lago estate, winding its way gently over undulating pine woodland. The 18 holes lie in the unspoilt south east corner of Quinta do Lago, bordering the Ria Formosa estuary and the salt water lagoons. The San Lorenzo Golf Course is laid out in a figure of eight and at the heart lies the San Lorenzo Clubhouse with a golf pro shop; comfortable changing facilities and a welcoming bar and restaurant.

    Pinheiros Altos Golf Club

    Pinheiros Altos Golf Resort is located in the heart the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, a nationally protected area known for its outstanding splendour. Pinheiros Altos holds the prime position in Quinta do Lago, and holds the most prestigious location in the ‘Golden Triangle’ (Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura). The Pinheiros Altos golf course was designed with one simple aim in mind; to create the perfect environment for those with a love of the Algarve and a passion for golf.

    The Pinheiros Altos Golf Resort features a 27 holes championship golf course, a spectacular clubhouse with bar, a restaurant, luxurious members lounge, the state of the art Pinheiros Altos Golf Academy and a Pro Shop offering a range of the most prestigious brands in the game of golf.

    The two rounds that we will play at Pinheiros Altos provide a wonderful compliment to the three rounds that we will play at San Lorenzo.
