Join Gary Pike to celebrate New Year and welcome 2021!
You will enjoy a hosted golf holiday week at the 5* JJW Penina Hotel and Golf Resort near Alvor, Western Algarve. This is a package of a 5* resort hotel + golf + dinners with drinks + a New Year's Eve Gala Dinner with drinks night + remedial coaching from Gary.
Gary has been visiting Penina for many years and this is always a popular event. The journey from Faro airport is about 1 hour.
Penina was the first golf resort on the Algarve and has lots of interesting history - including its association with Henry Cotton, hosting past Portugal Opens and even the Beatles retreated here at the height of their fame! The hotel has been refurbished, but without losing any of its grand spledor - many of the staff have been here since Gary started using Penina and the service is very attentive.
You will experience a 5* hotel and stay in Mountain View Classic rooms. Upgrades to pool/golf view rooms and suites are available.
The resort has 2 Courses - the Henry Cotton designed Championship course, which you play 3 times and the more straightforward Resort course, which you play twice.
The driving range and practice facilities are amongst some of the best you will find.
The 5* facilities include - 4 restaurants and bars in the hotel, the largest pool on the Algarve - surrounded by gardens and the golf course. Post golf drinks are taken on the attractive Penina patio!
Penina breakfasts, complete with an Egg chef, are amongst the best on the Algarve!
The 3 nights Half Board in a selection of restaurants, includes drinks with your dinner - water, beer and wine. On other nights Gary will give you the option to dine out in the Alvor area.
Then you will enjoy the spectacular New Year's Eve Celebration with dinner, drinks, live shows, entertainment, fireworks and after party. A chance to "dress to impress"! Many men will wear dinner suits, but lounge suits can be worn.
