Golf in the Algarve - Just Treats

I don't usually go plugging golf in other countries - I do after all believe that there are more than enough golf experiences on this little island to keep anyone happy for eternity - but I fell in love with the Algarve last year, courtesy of Martinhal Resort, and the offer put out today by Just Treats was simply too good not to mention. 

I've already checked my diary but can't do the two months (April and May) that this offer is available for... even though the deal is 7 days a week.

Just Treats Golf

€249 for 3 nights B and B in a 4 star hotel. Add in two rounds of golf and free transfers to and from the two golf courses and you have a sweet deal. Flights aren't included* and neither are transfers to and from the airport, but for €249 what exactly were you expecting!

The hotel is Hotel Formosa Park, Almancil, 20km from Faro Airport and practically on the sea. 

Your two rounds of golf are at: 
Pinheros Altos Golf Course
San Lorenzo Golf Course

Certainly if you know anything about golf in the Algarve, the second of those courses should be instantly recognisable to you.

It's a package deal from

Full details on the Just Treats Website.

*Just The Ticket

Just for you, I looked up prices of flights departing from Dublin. 
Aer Lingus all-in price: €113 in April and €150 in May 
Ryanair prices are much the same.

As for golf clubs... leave yours behind and hire a new set from You might like them so much you don't want to give them back.

The deal expires on February 26. Shouldn't be too difficult to convince a mate or three, or even just your spouse to take a swing at this particular deal.


  1. Thanks for posting, Kevin! I have been looking for some more information on golf courses in Ireland for an upcoming trip.


  2. I have to say the photos look spectacular! What an incredible experience! I would love to golf in Ireland sometime. Unfortunately I'm stuck in the United States in Mesquite, Nevada. Some great courses out here, but those photos make me drool. If you ever come out West, come check out Coral Canyon Golf Course in southern Utah. It has its own beauty. :)

  3. can anyone join JUSTTREATS and take adv of offers - we are canadian and hope to go on golf holiday later in aug ..

    1. Yep, I don't see why not. Offers are fairly constant too, so the choice is good. Try and sign up and see what happens. Where are you planning on being/playing?
