A Great Guidance On The Most Popular Tavira Golf Clubs
The town of Tavira in Eastern Algarve has been long known around the world for its architectural attractions. The whole Eastern Algarve region was a popular tourist destination, but less of a golf attraction. It was only after the year 2000 when the first golf course was created in Tavira, that golf tourists started taking this region seriously.
Holidaymakers planning a trip to Tavira won’t be disappointed as there are three fine courses waiting to entertain golf enthusiasts. This article gives you a brief introduction to all three golf courses in and around Tavira.
Benamor Golf Course
The Benamor Golf Course was the first to come up in Tavira in 2000. This 18-hole course was designed by the famous Sir Henry Cotton. The course is set in a natural terrain with fantastic scenic views of the Serra do Caldeirao and the Atlantic Ocean. The designer has taken all measures to retain the natural look of the terrain as much as possible. This means players are required to have a solid, accurate game to dodge the trees and other natural obstacles in the course. Those who want to visit Benamor Course when it’s least populated can plan a January holiday. There is high demand for tee times in the month of September.
Quinta de Ria Golf Course
When the mandate to create Quinta de Ria was given to Rocky Roquemore the idea was to come up with a course that everyone can enjoy. The architect masterfully used the natural setting of the landscape to create a beautiful, yet challenging golf course. To make the Quinta de Ria special and appealing, 5 lakes were created on the course. Players will have to deal with these water hazards near the greens of the 5th, 10th, and 14th holes. To give this fairly open course an Algarve landscape look hundreds of carob and olive trees were added.
Quinta de Cima Golf Course
The Quinta de Cima is a championship class golf course located nearby the Quinta de Ria, its sister course. Similar to the Quinta de Ria, this too was designed by Rocky Roquemore. Compared to its sister course, this one is more challenging and best suited for low-handicappers. Right from the first hole, the course will test club selection, shot selection, and precision skills of the golfers. The Quinta de Cima is very artistically designed and the bunkers, water hazards, and other obstacles are very strategically placed. Players are advised to be cautious of the variety of water hazards in this course.
