Orizonte Golf set to fly high with new Irish flights
Golfers across Ireland have more reason than ever to discover the best-value golf in Portugal following the announcement of two new flight routes to Lisbon this month.
The popularity of ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf, the largest golf course management company in Portugal, and its seven courses in the Emerald Isle is set to soar with TAP Air Portugal and Aer Lingus both operating new services into the Portuguese capital in 2019.
From March, TAP is launching a twice-daily service from Dublin to Lisbon airport, while it is giving golfers added incentive to book by offering free golf club carriage on the flights – worth €80 when booking a return flight.
Meanwhile, Aer Lingus is expanding the number of services it operates into Lisbon from this month by launching a new twice-weekly route from Cork to add to the nine flights per week that it already runs from Dublin.
ORIZONTE commercial director, José Maria Cazal-Ribeiro, said: “Irish golfers are renowned for their love of the game and their desire to play new, different courses.
“We’re very proud at ORIZONTE to be able to offer a varied golf product which appeals to golfers of all abilities. The launch of the new flights means that our venues are now more accessible than ever before, and we’re looking forward to welcoming a new Irish golfing audience over the coming months.”
ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf’s portfolio offers the chance to play six of the leading courses in close proximity to Portugal’s capital in the beautiful Costa Azul region, together with exceptional value for money on a wide range of accommodation options.
Included among its courses are Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club, Ribagolfe – regarded as one of the finest in the Lisbon region and was once described as the ‘Valderrama of Portugal’ – and Aroeira, twice the venue for the Portuguese Open and recently included in a list of Continental Europe’s Top 100 Golf Resorts.
