Golf... And so much more...

Lisbon & Oporto

Join us and experience the most glorious, vibrant heart of Portugal. One of the oldest countries in Europe, the country’s capital Lisbon, is older than Rome by about four centuries.

Yet today, Portugal is Europe’s trendiest destination with the likes of Madonna, Ricky Martin, Michael Fassbender, Monica Belluci and French actor and footballer, Eric Cantona all choosing to set up home here.

Linksland Luxury Golf Travel also has close connections with our European office based in the Portuguese Island of Madeira.

We are offering a 10-day experience of two of Portugal's richest and most varied regions - in and around the cities of Lisbon and Oporto. Here you will encounter Portugal’s ‘old world’ feel coupled with the most amazing food & wine, culture, art and history. 

The area is also host to some of the finest ‘true’ links golf courses in the world. West Cliffs is a sensation, newly opened and set to become a links sensation. Troia is similarly scintillating and Penha Longa has long been one of the country’s finest, host to the Portuguese Open with amazing views of Estoril and the Atlantic coast. 

Take a look over our ‘sample’ itinerary to get a flavour of what’s in store. We very much look forward to welcoming you to the grandeur and golf of Lisbon & Oporto.
