Golfing in Porto and the North
"If you have never been to the north of Portugal before, you really
should. Combine fantastic golf with culture, wonderful food and wine,
beautiful scenery, and lots of dreamy little towns and villages that
you can explore and enjoy, and you have an idea of what Porto and
the north of Portugal is all about."

Porto and the North
Close to the sea and the mountains, this region is known for its green landscapes and exceptional wines, among which the world famous Port Wine. Here you can play golf in a wide variety of courses, surrounded by inspiring landscapes.
In greater Porto there are various reference courses, and of course, there is the advantage of being able to visit one of the most beautiful and dynamic cities of the Old Continent, which has been considered, several times, as the
best European city break. Exploring the historic city centre is a must – classified as Word Heritage by UNESCO -, the traditional Bolhão Market, the beautiful Lello Bookshop and the centenary Café Majestic, a gem of the Art Nouveau, nominated one of the most beautiful cafes in the world several times. In the evening, the restaurants, bars, galleries and clubs on the streets of Cândido dos Reis and of Galeria de Paris, all fill up.
Further north, in Minho or in Trás-os-Montes, it is irresistible to associate golf with the excellent regional cuisine and the original green wines.
