South Africa is the obvious choice for a winter golf holiday, although for a shorter flight time and almost guaranteed good weather Madeira and the Canary Islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria also come highly recommended.
However, here at The Golf Travel People we have all been fortunate enough over the years to experience great winter weather in mainland Europe in Southern Spain and Portugal including a recent December visit to the Western Algarve seeing mid afternoon highs of over 20 degrees – a lovely way to prepare for Christmas. In these days of climate change, we might as well try and find an upside!
So, check out the whole range of golf holidays we offer as doubtless some of these options will provide an excellent winter golf holiday with plenty of warm sunshine and golf courses in great conditions. In addition to the weather, December and January prices in mainland Spain and Portugal for a winter golf break tend to be the lowest cost of the year, so not only might the weather be good, but the impact on your wallet can be minimal as well – a double win!
