Football lovers still have the chance to experience one of the biggest football club rivalries in the game next month with a three-night golf break to remember, including a ticket to see the Lisbon derby between Sporting Lisbon and Benfica on Sunday February 8.
And just days later, golfers can compete against amateurs from all over Europe by taking part in the inaugural ORIZONTE Lisbon Golf Trophy, a new event designed to showcase some of Lisbon’s finest and best value courses.
As part of the ‘Derby & Golf Weekend in Lisbon’, guests will enjoy three nights’ bed and breakfast accommodation in a four-star hotel in the city, two rounds of golf around the Portuguese capital and a ticket to the Derby de Lisboa for just €345 per person. (approx £275)
In addition to watching the game, the must-have break features 18 holes of golf at two of the finest courses in Lisbon’s Costa Azul region, Quinta do Peru Golf and Country Club and Ribagolfe, dubbed the ‘Valderrama of Portugal’, and transfers to and from the golf courses, with prices based on two people sharing a twin room.
Taking place from February 10-15, the ORIZONTE Lisbon Golf Trophy will involve friendly competition across two handicap categories, with cultural highlights including a Fado dinner, wine cellar visit and tasting.
Five nights’ accommodation is included at the four-star Sesimbra Hotel & SPA, with four tournament rounds played at Quinta do Peru, Aroeira, Ribagolfe and Santo Estevão, and, with all transfers included, golfers can relax and save additional costs on car hire.
Launched last year, ORIZONTE – Lisbon Golf offers the chance to play some of the leading courses in close proximity to Portugal’s capital together with exceptional value for money on a wide range of accommodation options across the region.

Golfers can also enjoy the 7,000-plus yards challenge at Santo Estevão, while the extensive practice facilities available across the venues help make ORIZONTE the ideal option for individuals and groups looking to book a stay, play and learn package.
