This is the English version of my blog GDAMAS.COM (Portuguese language, online since 2010). I'm still working on it. English is not my native language. Please, feel free to correct me.
Golf is a tradition in the Algarve (south of Portugal). We find here some of the best golf fields in the world. The region hosts great matches, and profesional golf players invest their money here. Not surprisingly, thousands of tourists come to the Algarve every year exclusivelly for this reason.
It’s unusual a tourist come to the Algarve with all of his golf equipment. Traditionally, the tourist will look for golf dedicated stores, and sometimes the hotel where he stays offers what he needs. He can buy or even rent the equipment.
If you are in Alvor or around, one of the best stores to visit is Alvor Golf Shop.
You can easily arrive there. The store is located near Alvor Village (Old Historic Centre) and Alvor Ria, two popular touristic areas. Step inside and you will be greeted by the owner, Christian. He’s always there to serve you. And that’s what makes the little store so special. You will not feel there the cold service we see in some huge stores and hotels.
Christian is very kind, committed to serve you as a friend. He wants to keep loyal customers. And he is successful is his mission. British and German tourists, specially, like his job a lot.
The Alvor Golf Shop offers all the equipment you need for your golf plays, including clothes. To make your life easier, you can rent (not buy) some items.
