Golfers across the UK and Europe are being offered the chance to combine world-class golf with a stay at Lisbon’s newest golf resort hotel this spring, by taking part in the inaugural Aroeira Golf Trophy.
Taking place from May 20-24, the new event is organised by ORIZONTE – Lisbon’s largest golf management company – and features golf at three of Lisbon’s finest courses, together with the opportunity to experience the ultra-chic Aroeira Lisbon Hotel, which opened to widespread acclaim before Christmas.
Played with a Stableford format, the tournament will see golfers of all abilities compete in a number of different categories over 54 holes for an array of top prizes, with two rounds being played at the 36-hole Aroeira Golf Resort and one at Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club.
Event packages feature four nights’ bed-and-breakfast accommodation at the four-star Aroeira Lisbon Hotel, with prices starting from €498 per person (approx £425), and include a welcome cocktail reception at the Aroeira Beach Club; a wine-tasting; a gala dinner and prize-giving ceremony; as well as tournament entry and practice balls.
A venue for two Portuguese Opens, the Aroeira estate sits 25km south of the Portuguese capital and has a reputation for quality, with two widely-acclaimed 18-hole golf layouts – Aroeira I and II – located amid tranquil natural pine forest.
Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club, also features a succession of verdant pines and astute bunkering while, nestling inside the Aroeira estate, lays the four-star Aroeira Lisbon Hotel. Boasting 68 bedrooms and suites, an outdoor pool, a spa and a choice of five bars and restaurants, the hotel also provides easy access to the many golden sandy beaches in the Costa Azul region.
Aroeira and Quinta do Peru are both part of ORIZONTE, which offers the chance to play six of the leading courses in close proximity to Portugal’s capital, together with exceptional value for money on a wide range of accommodation options across the Costa Azul region.
