The Vale do Lobo Golf Club promotes a social environment amongst their members.
The Golf Club aims be a home from home for its members and at Vale do Lobo the emphasis is very much on creating the perfect golfing environment both on and off the courses.
The relaxed and friendly atmosphere that surrounds the Club is as a result of years of working with members to ensure that their varied needs are met and expectations exceeded through professionally organised tournaments, a diverse range of social events and constant communication between the Club administration and its members.
Golfing activities to ensure there is always an excuse to join in a game.
A community which is not only extremely welcoming, but one that enjoys a varied calendar of golfing activities to ensure there is always an excuse to join in a game.
Vale do Lobo Algarve is unique in that its golfing programme enables visiting members to join in with other members immediately on arrival, without the worry of having to book tee times in advance. In fact, this is the perfect way to feel a part of the resort’s golfing community, as increasingly more members are taking part in organised golf.
From separate informal “rollups” for men and ladies, that take place three days each week, to singles competitions on the other two days, the resort Golf Committee works closely with the Golf Club Administration to ensure there is something to appeal to everyone.
The ambience and structure of the Vale do Lobo Golf Club really is unique, offering everything a keen golfer could ever need, and promising a very friendly welcome for those who choose to join.
