This is the English version of my blog GDAMAS (Portuguese language, online since 2010). I'm still working on it. English is not my native language.
Golf is a tradition in the Algarve (south of Portugal). Thousands of tourists — especially from England and Germany — come every year only for this reason. We find here some of the best golf fields in the world. The region hosts grand matches, and professional golfers come to invest their money.
It’s unusual for a player to come to the Algarve with all of his or her golf equipment. So, people look for golf shops, where it’s possible to buy or rent gear and clothes.
If you are in Alvor or around, one of the best shops to visit is Alvor Golf Shop.
You can easily arrive there. The shop is near Alvor Villa (Historic Centre) and Alvor Ria, two popular tourist areas. Step inside and the owner, Christian, will greet you. He’s always there to serve customers. And that’s what makes the shop special. You will not feel there the cold service we find in enormous stores and hotels.
Christian is kind, committed to serve you as a friend. He wants to keep loyal customers. And he succeeds in his mission. British and German tourists, particularly, appreciate his work.
The Alvor Golf Shop supplies the equipment you need for golf matches. There’s also clothing. To make your life easier, you can rent — not buy — some items.
