• Overview

    The ‘Golf & Coaching Weeks’ are based at the superbly appointed The Robinson Club in Tavira  in the eastern Algarve, which has both the Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima Golf Clubs onsite.  In addition to the on-site rounds, the final round of the week will take place at Benamor Golf Club, adding extra variety to the week.  The Robinson Club is one of the finest resorts in the area, with excellent accommodation, facilities, service and cuisine.  The terms of stay are ‘All Inclusive’, which provides additional value for money.  The coaching facilities at the resort are first class, as indeed are the two golf courses.  Located only 35 minutes from Faro Airport, the Robinson Club provides a wonderful venue for the ‘Golf & Coaching Weeks’.

    The Robinson Club, Tavira

    The Robinsons Club, opened in 2008, presents a superb combination of quality accommodation, service, cuisine and facilities. The resort simply provides the very highest standards on all fronts. The resort is also very close to the charming Algarve town of Tavira. The bedrooms are modern in style and come equipped with two bathrooms, one of which features a shower. In-room amenities include a hairdryer, a make-up mirror, a direct dial telephone, a safety deposit box, a mini bar, satellite TV and an individually regulated air conditioning and a heating system. Internet access is available, and the beds are double or king-size. Balconies and terraces also feature. The hotel features an outdoor pool and a heated indoor pool and the well equipped gym has ocean views. There are also four tennis courts, a spa area with two saunas, steam rooms and a solarium. The terms of stay at the hotel are now ‘All Inclusive’ which encompasses breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks throughout the day and all but a few drinks. Both Quinta da Ria Golf Club and Quinta da Cima Golf Club are located on-site.

    Quinta da Ria Golf Club

    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.

    Quinta de Cima Golf Club

    Compared to Quinta da Ria, the Quinta de Cima Golf Course looks and plays more like a top tournament course. This is not only a matter of length but also balance and difficulty of holes. From the very first tee of Quinta de Cima we will need to carefully consider our game strategy, with choice of club and ball trajectory. Hazards are definitely very much in play on all holes, whether it is the well designed and cleverly located bunkers or the water hazards in the shape of lakes, streams and ditches.

    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.
