We'd Rather be Playing... Dona Filipa, Algarve
The San Lorenzo Golf Course, opened in 1988 and designed by American architects Joseph Lee and Rocky Roquemore, borders the Ria Formosa Estuary and winds through lush pine trees.
The 27-hole Pinheiros Altos championship course is split into three 9-hole formats. As one of the leading golf academies in Southern Europe, with the state-of- the-art Titleist fitting centre, the excellent tuition available will help every golfer to improve their game.
With stunning ocean views, an exclusive beach club, an outdoor swimming pool and excellent courses, Dona Filipa is one of the finest resorts in Portugal. The silver service Dom Duarte Restaurant has just had a major revamp. With a new awardwinning executive head chef, a new menu inspired by Portugese exploration and a full multimillion-euro refurbishment, dining here is even more special.
Dona Filipa is a 15-minute drive from Faro International Airport.
