Footie and golf in Lisbon

Golfers with a passion for football can kick off the 2015 season with a Portugal golf break including the chance to see the Lisbon derby between Sporting Lisbon and Benfica, one of the biggest club rivalries in world football. Orizonte – Lisbon Golf is offering fans of both sports the chance to enjoy a three-night stay 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 (about £287).

In addition to watching the game, the break features 18 holes of golf at two of the courses in Lisbon’s Costa Azul region, Quinta do Peru Golf and Country Club (pictured) and Ribagolfe. Three nights’ bed and breakfast hotel accommodation is also included in the ‘Derby & Golf Weekend in Lisbon’ package together with transfers to and from the golf courses, with prices based on two people sharing a twin room.
