Golf and football lovers are being served up the perfect match this Easter with the chance to combine award-winning golf in one of Europe’s best-loved cities with a ticket to watch one of the oldest sporting rivalries in the world.
Fans of the two sports can enjoy the best of both worlds with ORIZONTE’s ‘Golf & Football Derby Weekend Break’, with two rounds of golf near the Portuguese capital of Lisbon and a ticket to see Sporting Lisbon against Benfica from just €469 per person.
Dating back to 1907, the Derby de Lisboa is one of the oldest rivalries in European football and there is sure to be an atmosphere to savor inside the Estádio José Alvalade stadium as defending Primeira Liga champions Sporting bid for their third win in a row over their arch-rivals.
Taking place from April 14-17, the limited package also features 36 holes of golf and three nights’ accommodation at the Aroeira Golf Resort – rated among Europe’s top 50 golf resorts.
Nicknamed the ‘Wentworth of Lisbon’ by many observers, Aroeira – 25km south of Lisbon – is one of Portugal’s most iconic golfing venues and is a two-time host of the Portuguese Open.
As well as 18 holes on each of the resort’s championship courses, Aroeira Pines Classic and Aroeira Challenge, breaks also include a free golf shuttle and bed-and-breakfast accommodation at the chic Aroeira Lisbon Hotel.
Additional green fees at Ribagolfe, one of the other venues in ORIZONTE’s impressive portfolio, can be booked for €55 per round, while guests seeking to stay in the heart of Lisbon can enjoy a three-night break at the Sana Malhoa Hotel including the same benefits from €494 per person.
ORIZONTE provides golfers with the opportunity to play five of the leading courses in close proximity to Lisbon in the stunning Costa Azul, together with exceptional value for money on a wide range of accommodation options.
