What Makes Challenging Golf Courses Of Tavira So Attractive?

Tavira is one of the most architecturally beautiful towns in Portugal. Most of the historically significant structures in Tavira date back to hundreds of years. But, more than its artistic past what draws scores of tourists to this wonderful town is the many magnificent golf courses. The town is surrounded by world famous golf courses set on picturesque landscape and each one more challenging than the other. What are the popular courses in Tavira and what makes them so attractive? Let’s find out.

Monte Rei

It won’t take you long to fall in love with this beautiful golf course. Just two points about this course is enough to convince any golfer to pay a visit to Monte Rei. This strikingly attractive course is set in a hilly terrain with good elevated tees and tough putting greens. The dramatic view of the surroundings is just awesome. Another interesting point is that this 18-hole, par-72, course was designed by the famous J. Nicklaus. Playing at Monte Rei would lighten your purse considerably, but the course is fully worth your time and money. The Monte Rei should be at the top of your ‘must play’ list when visiting Tavira.

Quinta Da Ria

The Quinta Da Ria is part of the twin courses, set side by side. The other course is the Quinta De Cima. The Quinta Da Ria is close to the sea, hence it offers more scenic sights for the golfers to enjoy. The course is beautiful and equally challenging with some of the holes very close to the water, hence most affected by the winds. Like the links course, the Quinta Da Ria is open with very few trees around the course. You need not worry about the weather. It’s sunny here for the most part of the year. The 17th hole on the course is particularly challenging as golfers have to negotiate many sand traps and water hazards.

Quinta De Cima

On the other side of the pathway that separates the two courses lies the Quinta De Cima. This may not be as picturesque as its sister course, but it’s a lot tougher to play. Golfers with better control over their shots will be rewarded at this course. There are more trees here and the few water bodies, like streams and lakes that run across some of the holes make the Quinta De Cima a lot more challenging for golfers. Both the courses are different, so book tee times at Quinta Da Ria and Quinta De Cima to truly enjoy your trip to Tavira.
