Chaka Travel’s Escorted Golf Tours & Tournaments

If you enjoy travelling as a group, then look no further than our escorted golf tours or our fun and sociable golf tournaments.

Meet like-minded people and make lifelong friends on these Escorted Golf Tours.

Jacques Escorted Golf Tour
Relaxing in the Sun

Escorted tours are ideal for all, couples, groups of friends as well as single golfers. We can also customise a tour for groups with an entire private tour for themselves. No matter what destination, group size, or length of stay we will tailor make a trip for your group including having our PGA Pro, Jacques, travelling with you to look after every detail.

For some competitive golf, have a look at our golf tournaments. Whilst these include a few competitive rounds during the holiday, the emphasis is more on having fun and playing with like-minded golfers. Also benefit from one to one tuition with Jacques to improve your game whilst on a holiday of a lifetime. Single golfers are very welcome to join the tournaments apart from the mixed pairs.

Total flexibility with your Escorted Tour itinerary.

Many people incorrectly assume that joining an escorted golf holiday means that their time is all planned out in advance with more of a ‘school trip’ feel than a relaxing, luxury holiday. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In most cases, enjoy 5 or 6 rounds of golf, leaving plenty of time to explore and do any sightseeing or relaxing you wish.

Your tour guide & golf tutor Jacques Gous

Our tours are hosted by the affable Jacques Gous, a South African golf professional who lives in the UK. Jacques lives and breathes golf and is committed to ensuring you have an unforgettable holiday as well as helping improve your game!

Golf Holidays for Groups – What You Need to Know

Holidays are better together! At Chaka Travel, we love a group golf holiday – a chance to catch up with friends, make new golf buddies, and of course see the sights and play at some truly outstanding locations. If you’re new to the group golf holiday scene, it might feel a bit daunting – what should you expect? We’ve answered the most common queries and concerns below, so when it comes to golf holidays for groups, here’s what you need to know.

Destinations

There’s really no limit to where you can go as a golf group, and we can offer you a varied package for anywhere in the world you want to play – from firm customer favourites like Mauritius and South Africa, to the modern USA and exotic Middle East. If there’s a particular course on your bucket list you’d like to play, we can help make it happen. What does your next group holiday look like? Maybe it’s for a birthday trip or a stag do? Talk to us and let us tailor the perfect holiday for your golf group.

Tuition

Many of our escorted golf holidays offer expert golf tuition from your PGA pro guide throughout your stay, so you can brush up on your skills before participating in one of our fun tournaments with the rest of your party. We offer mixed pairs and open tournaments, which are friendly, organised competitions that single golfers are also very welcome to join.

Itineraries

If you’re planning a group golf holiday, we can help you create an itinerary that allows you as much freedom and flexibility as you like. Often, people don’t like to feel too tied down to a schedule on holiday – after all, you’re there to relax. If you want time away from the group to do your own thing that’s not a problem. We can plan your trip to take in lots of local sights and attractions as well as playing golf, which is why our group holidays are popular with golfers and non-golfers alike.

Extra activities

Sights, relaxation, culture…whatever you want from your group holiday, we can cater to it. Our resorts and destinations offer decadent spa experiences, breath-taking beaches to stroll on, ruins and temples to explore and of course, plenty of nightlife. How about combining your group golf holiday with a safari? Or perhaps fishing is more your scene? Whether you want to fish for tiger in the Zambezi or try big game fishing in the Indian Ocean – Chaka Travel can provide the ultimate fishing experience.

Time to yourself

Holidays are time to relax, so even on a group golf holiday you can make time to discover a new destination at your own pace and enjoy some time to yourself. Talk to us today about arranging the golf trip of a lifetime and we’ll also give you all our insider info, from where to eat to activities to avoid if you want a truly authentic experience.

What does the Algarve have to offer golf enthusiasts this summer?

The Algarve is well-known around the world for its sun-drenched beaches, welcoming local culture, and a beautiful, rural countryside. The country of Portugal has a rich golfing history and tradition, cultivated over the last century, and it remains one of the most beautiful golfing destinations in the world. Portugal’s most southerly region, the Algarve, stretches from the West Coast to the Spanish border in the east, and offers any golf enthusiast a beautiful and truly diverse getaway – and, of course, the opportunity to golf on some of the world’s most beautiful courses. It’s only a 3 hour flight (or less) from Ireland and the United Kingdom, and flights arrive to the region’s sole international airport, meaning that flights and accessibility are always easy.

The Algarve has an ideal climate, which means that it’s easy to get away and play golf no matter what time of the year; and there’s a wide range of locations to explore. The most central area, which includes Vilamoura, Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago is one of the most luxurious on the island, and one of the places best equipped for golf, due to the number of championship courses available. Take in the beautiful terrain while you challenge yourself by playing the Quinta Do Lago, San Lorenzo and Vale Do Lobo courses. Mention must go to Vilamoura if you intend to travel with a golf group, as the busy town is close to a wide range of resorts, and also boasts a lively nightlife to ensure all members of the party have the holiday of a lifetime. Once you’ve finished golfing, the Algarve has a wide variety of beaches, nightlife and culture to be explored. Praia do Anção, a continuation of the beach at Quinta do Lago, boasts a stunning stretch of sand, friendly lifeguards and a family-friendly atmosphere, whereas Praia da Marinha, in central Algarve shows off breath-taking sheer cliff faces and boasts a nomination as one of the top 10 beaches in Europe.

If you love culture, the Algarve is a rich experience in this area too. Silves, lying slightly inland, is surrounded by orange groves, and has a beautiful red-brick castle and 13th century Cathedral, for all the history lovers amongst us. Other notable cultural hubs include Tavira, Lagos, or Sagres.  In terms of nightlife, the Algarve has plenty to offer. Central Algarve boasts a wide array of bars, clubs, and hotels, with a variety sure to satisfy visitors of any age. For the party animals, Albufeira, Praia da Rocha, and Lagos are the best, and for a luxury holiday try the ‘Golden Triangle’ – Almancil, Quinta do Lagos, and Vale do Lobo.

We at Chaka Travel have an extensive range of luxury golf holidays in Portugal just waiting to be tailored, and as golfing holiday specialists, we’re confident that we can provide you with the golfing holiday of a lifetime in the beautiful Algarve region – just give us a call today on 028 9023 2112!
