"Anne and I joined all three Fairways Competition Weeks this Springtime, mid March in Villamoura, mid April in Alvor and the end of April at Balaia. The accommodation at all venues was very good and the 12 Golf Courses played were some of the best in Europe. Everyone participating was extremely friendly with playing partners being varied each day. Our host Sean was with us every day and ensured that everything was covered, quite often joining us in the evenings. I have been on golf trips to the Algarve many times and can certainly recommend Fairways Competition Weeks."
