Florida Golf Vacations

Planning vacations has become much easier with Internet. The Internet allows golfers to research various golf courses in Florida to create a complete package. There is such a wealth of information on the Internet that at times people may be bombarded with tons of information which may end up confusing some. For this reason, it is important to know what to look for when creating a Florida Golf Package.

The first thing to research is of course the golf course itself. Online golf courses can look spectacular, but in person may be terrible let downs. The Internet may have very old pictures when the course was at its prime. Therefore, when researching a golf course one will want to review the age of the course, the designer, the type of greens, the slope rating, and various elements. It may be helpful to read the reviews from other golfers who have played these courses. Reviews can be very beneficial in selecting a course because they are the unbiased views of other players.

Another thing to consider when looking for a Florida Golf Travel Package is the location of the golf course. The course should be convenient to major airports because this will cut down on any extra travel expenses. The exception in this case is if the departing airport is in another location which may be the case if golfers are planning on golfing their way up the coast of Florida. If not, one will want the golf course to be close to other courses. Having several golf courses in the same vicinity allows golfers to play on different courses. Most golfers prefer to play different courses on a vacation because each course offers a different level of difficulty.

Another thing to consider when searching for a golf vacation in Florida is price. Many resorts or hotels offer certain discounts or special rates for golfers looking to book a golf vacation. These discounts may include a free night stay with a minimum stay or a complimentary twilight round of golf. Many resorts offer free cocktail hours as well as free continental breakfasts. Some hotels and resorts do not always advertise these specials so it is important to always ask for any current promotions.

Booking a golf package in Florida requires a bit of research to find the best online trip deal. These tips may be used to ensure golfers make the most out of their time and money.

Reserve Your Golf Vacation Now In The Sunny Algarve

The Carvoeiro area of the Algarve is known for its close proximity to some of the great golf courses in Central Algarve.

Along with golf their are many things to do on your winter holiday to the Algarve. However, by choosing the Carvoeiro area for your base, you are within easy reach of the complete Algarve with drives of 45 minutes to Faro Airport and 50 minutes to Sagres and the last tip of land in Europe.

A traditional, small fishing village in central Algarve, is how Carvoeiro survived for many decades, now it is still a fishing village but also an popular holiday resort with visitors from all over the world coming to see the beautiful cove area and enjoy the ambience of Carvoeiro.

Carvoeiro is great for family holiday with great choice of self-catering accommodation, bars, restaurants and busy yet safe streets to walk and enjoy the Algarve weather.

Although over the years Carvoeiro has grown with Hotels, golf courses and other attractions, the five star quality of Carvoeiro is still very much kept and the town still has the traditional Portuguese fishing village feel.
In the main area of the village or town of Carvoeiro you will find many shops and restaurants and only a five minute drive outside you will find large supermarkets and great Golf Courses.

The area of Carvoeiro or Lagoa has many coves and beaches and we suggest you ask ate your reception, where to find the beaches that locals use as these are usually the best beaches. However, there is a beach in the centre of town the Praia do Carvoeiro (Praia is Portuguese for beach) which is surrounded by white cliffs which have many places to sit and take in the wonderful Algarve coastline.

Carvoeiro in itself is not a huge place, in fact quite small with just two roads leading into the town which arrive at a small square behind the beach. we advise you find parking as soon as you begin to enter the streets of Carvoeiro as the square was reorganised in 2009 and no parking is allowed in that area.

If you are a golf fan, then just outside Carvoeiro are several courses including the Pestana Golf Resort of Gramacho and Vale da Pinta, along with the wonderful Silves Golf Course. Silves Golf course is an ideal course to play if the rest of your party are not golfers, as you can allow them a day in beautiful Silves while the golfers play the golf course, Pestana Silves.

Also you will find some high quality accommodation at Pestana Gramacho and Pestana Vale da Pinta resorts, at very competitive prices. Staying at these resorts allows you great security, quiet and relaxing, yet you are a ten minute drive from the centre of Carvoeiro.

Carvoeiro has everything for a great holiday in the Algarve, beaches, bars, restaurants, golf, watersports all in one area of the Central Algarve. When you are choosing your holiday in the Algarve you really should choose the Carvoeiro area if you are requiring a great ralaxing vacation in the warm sun of the Algarve.
