It is with great delight that we introduce the Top 6 Golf Venues Near Lisbon for memorable events.

There is far more to this destination than golf but it offers an outstanding proposition for group golf. So we've put together our pick of the six best golf venues close to Lisbon.
There are many golf course rankings - so what makes our pick unique? Prestigious Venues not only consider the quality of the course but other factors that affect the overall experience for groups. Prestigious Venues Ratings take into account factors like the quality of the venue (combining accommodation and event spaces), course quality (combining luxury and adventure), the reputation of hospitality (combining food & beverage) and accessibility of location (combining distance to transport hubs & the setting). All these four variables we measure elevate the overall experience for golf events. So without further ado, here is our pick of the Top Six Golf Venues Near Lisbon - all connected to 5-star accommodation:
