Cut down on living arrangements
There’s nothing that gives you a better sense of the Algarve region than staying at a guest home. Why bother with a hotel or fancy golf resort when you can engage the culture up close? Many bed and breakfast facilities are run from the homes of local residents and you are sure to find them quite charming. When opting so, make sure you pick a place that is close (preferably within walking distance) from the golf course you will be frequenting. This way, you save on accommodation and travel costs.
Organize a tour through your local golf club
Almost every golf tour package offers discounted rates on large groups. If you are planning a golf tour, take along as many of your golf companions as you can. Selling a luxurious golf tour to your buddies shouldn’t take a lot of effort. Get them to club together and split the costs evenly. This way, you can go on a cheap golf tour to Algarve and enjoy the company of your friends throughout the trip. This doesn’t mean you should leave your family behind. The more the merrier! There is lots more to do in Algarve than just golf, so don’t hesitate to take your spouse and kids with you.
Packing the essentials
Expect the unexpected when going on an Algarve golf tour. Windy weather is common—despite the almost-all-year sunshine the country boasts. Rain is another factor to bear in mind. Don’t forget to pack special clubs you might need for tricky terrain. Also be sure to pack enough balls for the amount of games (and water hazards) you plan to play. If these items are not available for every game, you may be forced to purchase them at the golf course you are playing. This can run into serious costs because these shops know that their items are in high demand to tourists. Be prepared and save on unnecessary costs.
