Lisbon Mixed Open

Lisbon is Portugal’s hilly, coastal capital city. From imposing São Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the old city’s pastel-colored buildings, Tagus Estuary and Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge. The mild climate and the beauty of its coastal landscapes makes Lisbon a very much appreciated golf region by golfers from around the world. Further afield up the Atlantic Coastline are the resorts of Praia D’el Rey and the stunning West Cliffs – without doubt the best new course in Portugal.

Our Lisbon Mixed Open is 54 holes pairs better ball format. Included in the price is 4 nights accommodation ( based on 2 sharing a twin / double room) on a bed & breakfast board  basis and 3 rounds of golf – 2 at Praia D’el Rey and 1 at West Cliffs. A group meal and prize giving is included on the final night. Shared return transfers are also included between Lisbon Airport and the Hotel and the Hotel and each Golf Course.

The exclusive Praia D’El Rey Golf & Beach Resort is home to miles of golden beaches, a world-class golf course and long days of plentiful sunshine. Set along the pristine shores of Portugal’s Silver Coast, the resort offers a host of spectacular villas, holiday residences and of course, the luxury accommodation of the 5-star Marriott Hotel. The hotel is located right onto an oceanic beach, next to the 18-hole championship golf course. Guests can access an extensive spa equipped with 8 treatment and massage rooms. Free WiFi is available at this completely renovated hotel.

The elegant guestrooms of the Praia D´El Rey Marriott Golf & Beach Resort were recently refurbished and include a bath with selected bathroom amenities, TVs with cable reception and air-conditioning. They are classically furnished with a spacious living area. From their private balconies they either offer views of the ocean or of the golf course. Guests can choose among 2 different restaurants and one bar, serving gourmet dishes from buffets and à-la-carte menus. They offer ocean or pool views, and use mainly selected regional and national products. The Buffet Tempera has themed buffets with international and national cuisine that vary daily. Emprata Restaurant has an à la carte menu, while Contato Lobby Bar provides light meals. There’s also a pool bar, where guests can enjoy al fresco lunches, light meals and refreshments.

The championship golf course is the centrepiece of the resort and maintains its reputation as one of the top courses in Europe. Only 50 minutes from cosmopolitan Lisbon, Praia D’El Rey is world-class resort in the Portuguese sun!. Praia D’El Rey is arguably one of the most stunning golf courses in Europe. Set among extensive pine forests and undulating dunes, with spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlengas Islands beyond. The 18-hole golf course was designed by the renowned American golf architect Cabell B.Robinson and was inaugurated on 14th June 1997. Deep bunkers, sloping greens and sandy dunes contrast sharply with the lush fairways, making it the complete golfing challenge.

Praia D’El Rey is rated amongst the top golf courses in Europe by Golf World Magazine and is one of Portugal’s major golfing destinations for both private and sponsored events. The course is a mixture of seaside links and parkland holes with a par of 73, offering the golfer a unique experience. Players are required to have a valid golf handicap certificate.

Almost certainly the best new course in Portugal and probably in the top 3 courses in the country Westcliffs is stunning. The varied landscape and natural terrain at West Cliffs was maintained as undisturbed as possible to create an unique and world class 18-hole seaside links golf course alongside the Silver Coast. Rolling sand dunes interspersed with coastal vegetation, while the pine groves overlook the ocean from above. This privileged and exclusive location will mesmerise and challenge you to tame the forces of nature and perfect your game. The course will challenge the golfer in difficulty and length, but with its modern design and several sets of tees, this great experience will be accessible to golfers of all levels.

Is there any Group Discount available ?

Yes – We have negotiated 1 free in 8 for any groups of 8 or more that are booking on this tournament package.

What does Minimum Number on Trip mean ?

Obviously a lot of organisation and expense goes into each of our tournaments so in order for any one trip to be viable we require a minimum of 24 guests on the majority of our trips.

Our trips are very popular so very few fail to achieve this threshold so we encourage you to book early to ensure your place.

Here’s how it works –

We set a ‘cut off date’ for determining if we have sufficient numbers for the trip. This is 180 days prior to the start date of the trip. This is because our resort and golf partners have blocked out a substantial number of rooms and tee times and if we are not going to proceed they need the opportunity to resell these.

When you book you will only be required to pay a £30 per person holding deposit – this is fully refundable should the trip not proceed. If the trip is confirmed but you decide that you no longer wish to join us you would forfeit this deposit.

If we do unfortunately have to advise you that we have not achieved the minimum number required to allow the trip to proceed you will have the option of continuing with the trip, but in the knowledge that the tournament will not be included. You will still benefit from the discounted prices that we have negotiated and will receive a £60 per person discount on the tournament inclusive price.

At 180 days prior to the trip commencing, once we have met the minimum number required, guests are required to pay a further deposit of £150 per person to confirm your place within 7 days.

The balance is then payable usually 45 days prior to the trip commencing.

Once we have confirmed that we have achieved the minimum number required for the trip to proceed we may occasionally offer ‘incentives’ to fill the trip. Rest assured that anyone already booked will benefit from the same ‘incentive’

What if the trip is cancelled after I have paid ?

Given the impact of Covid 19 on travel arrangements recently we have amended our cancellation policy to cover cancellation due to Covid (or any other major pandemic event).

If the resort is closed for the planned duration of the trip guests would be entitled to a full refund.

If the resort remains open but guests are unable to travel due to travel restrictions imposed either by the UK government or the host country government guests will be offered a credit against future tournaments at the same resort.

If guests choose to cancel for any other reason sorry but this would be loss of all monies paid.

What about Bad Weather

We have tried our best to plan our tournament destinations around weather seasons. However obviously we cannot absolutely guarantee the weather.

Our golf course partners will do everything possible to ensure that they course is fit for play following any adverse weather. It will be at the sole discretion of the golf courses to determine if the course is fit for play.

Green fees are not refundable in the event of golf course closure due to adverse weather conditions, nor other unpredictable reasons. If play is suspended for the day a ‘rain check’ voucher will be issued as a credit against play on a future date.

It is completely at the tournament organisers discretion to amend the competition rules in the event of any adverse conditions. For example tournaments may be reduced to 18 or 36 holes if the course is closed for any period or ‘winter rules’ eg lift clean and place may be put in place.

Refunds cannot be issued for any other element of the trip unfortunately.

Can I book flights with Amatours ?

No sorry we do not book flights.

Most of our non UK tournaments are in destinations well served by ‘low cost’ airlines who do not pay agents a commission.

If we were to offer a flight booking service we would obviously require additional resources, licences and insurances and if we cannot cover the cost of these through commissions from the airlines we would have to pass these on in the price of our trips.

However one word of advice – as a very small number of our tournaments do not achieve the required minimum number of participants and therefore may be cancelled please do not book your flights until we have confirmed that we have achieved the prescribed minimum and that the tournament will be proceeding.

Whilst we do not book flights we do try to ensure that our guests do benefit from the very high numbers of passengers that enjoy our overseas trips each year and have negotiated special deals with our airline sponsors which you will be advised about at the time of booking.

What are the Prizes ?

We have negotiated a sponsorship package with each of our host resorts and golf courses which means that the first prize is the opportunity for the winning pair to ‘defend their title’ at the following year’s event.

In order to comply with R&A rule 3-2a winners will receive a voucher for the cost of the event or £500 per person, whichever is the lower. In order to protect our guests Amateur status there can be no cash alternative sorry.

There will also be prizes for the runners up, which may differ from tournament.

Each round there will be a voluntary Two’s pot. Again to comply with R&A rules this will be at the discretion of each player to determine if they want to participate in the Two’s pot. Those that do pay £10 / Euro10 on the first day to enter.
