5* Portugal, Penina Golf Resort, Algarve, HB with drinks, Coaching - Gary Pike - Mar 2024


Join Gary at the 5* JJW Penina Hotel and Golf Resort near Alvor, Western Algarve and enjoy an Escorted Golf Coaching Holiday package of a 5* resort hotel + golf + coaching. 

Gary has been running his annual Coaching School at Penina for many years and this is always a popular event. The journey from Faro airport is 1 hour.

Penina was the first golf resort on the Algarve and has lot's 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 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. This is a week for 15 + Gary, so it's not an intensive coaching holiday - there will be a short game school and Gary will be on the range each playing day for those wanting remedial coaching.
