Top 5 European golf destinations for private jet charters

Top 5 European golf destinations for private jet charters

The game of golf has often been described as “a good walk spoiled”. Whatever the origin of the quote – often arguably attributed to the writer Mark Twain – there are millions of golf lovers who would vehemently disagree. The type of men and women who would happily spend hours on rainy evenings, when not actually on the golf course, arguing loudly over the location of the best golf destinations in Europe.

The arguments will be made and presented, for the best winter golf destinations, the best summer golf destinations, the most underrated golf destinations, and even the best unknown golf destinations (how they would know that, I have no idea). But one thing for certain is that conversation would roam far and wide from the Old Head of Kinsale on Ireland’s rugged Atlantic coast, with its challenging greens and majestic views to the sun-kissed fairways of Portugal’s Algarve.

Often, the conversation will turn to the nearest airport, and the airlines to get you there – or at least as close as possible. There would be the talk of the inconvenience of having to drive for half a day or even more from the airport to the fairway, before finally sinking a tee into the soft earth after what seems like an eternity. It is usually then that the conversation will turn to private jet hire, and how within an hour of walking down the steps of the aircraft you can be standing on the first tee glowing with the feeling that your finest golfing moment is only the swing of a driver away.

Ah, but if it were only that simple…

But it really is that simple with private jet charter flights, and not as expensive as you may have thought. What people sometimes forget is that the cost of private charter flights remains the same, regardless of whether it’s one person travelling or a group of four.

When it comes to the best golf trip destinations in Europe, we should start with a disclaimer; every golfer will have their own preferences for what constitutes a top golf destination. For some, it will be the allure of escaping dreary grey winters to the courses of the sunnier south. For those who continuously challenge their handicap, the links courses of Ireland and Scotland – easily accessed by private business jet rental – are there to encourage their progress or push golf entirely from their minds for another couple of months.

Some golfers want to discover courses in countries only gaining their reputation in the pursuit of the small white ball. Countries like Czechia, Belgium, Estonia, Sweden, and Denmark – who have all produced professional golfers of the highest pedigree over the years – but whose names have been absent from the maps of most European golf destination explorers.

Some of the greatest golfers who have ever lived have designed and built courses throughout the length and breadth of Europe. From Portugal to Bulgaria these courses have hosted some of modern golf’s best players in top tournaments like the Ryder Cup and as part of the European Tour.

Having said that, there’s no chance that we can offer you a definitive list of the top golf courses in Europe, but, with private jet flights – whisking you in and out of your course of choice, in style and comfort, we can at least provide a starter pack.

So, now that you’ve got your clubs onboard, it’s time to sit back and enjoy your private jet flight and dream of that perfect round of golf.

5 great golf destinations in Europe

5 great golf destinations in Europe

Ireland – With spectacular golf courses and world-famous for its hospitality, the Island of Ireland is often the lure of international golfers who drop in from as far afield as the USA, and even Japan – using corporate jet charters – to experience some of the best golfing in the world.

One of those is the K Club featuring not one, but two Arnold Palmer designed courses. Close to multiple small airports and landing strips, the K Club has in the past hosted the Ryder Cup, the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open and almost a dozen European Opens. The K Club also features one of Ireland’s most luxurious hotels and is situated close to both the Curragh, the world-famous home of horseracing, and within a short drive of Dublin City.

Portugal-Algarve – As one of Europe’s best spring golf destinations – and all year round  – Portugal’s Algarve region is a haven for busy golf lovers, who can fly in and fly out in comfort to experience some winter or spring sunshine along with some incredible golfing.

With three world-renowned courses to choose from at Quinta do Lago and the luxury of the Conrad Algarve Hotel, or a host of luxury villas sitting on their doorstep, the region is much-loved by golfers using private jet charter flights. As the practice grounds for many of Europe’s elite golfers, the North Course, the Laranjal Course – if you don’t like water hazards, you might want to skip this one – or the gem in the crown, the famed South Course, Quinta do Lago is the perfect bolt-hole for a quick and luxurious golfing getaway.

France – Close to the French city of Cannes the luxurious Terre Blanche Resort sits on 750 acres of pristine nature and is set among pine forests and spectacular gardens. In addition to luxury accommodation, designed in the style of a Provençal village, the resort is regarded as one of the best golf vacation destinations in France and features two rewarding golf courses, Le Chateau and Le Riou. Also, with over 300 days of sunshine per year, arriving by private charter airline makes the Terre Blanche Resort the ideal French golf and relaxation holiday escape.

Spain – The Finca Cortesin Hotel and golf course are situated in a stunningly beautiful setting close to the towns of Marabella, Sotogrande, and Puerto Banus. Its golf course is regarded as one of the best in all of Spain and features over 100 bunkers and acts as a huge challenge for even the most expert of golfers. Making use of a private plane for hire, you can leave home early in the morning from almost any part of Europe and be on the first tee by lunch. Along with being one of the most luxurious golf resorts in Europe, the course is designed to complement the natural surroundings, making it one of the most demanding but equally unforgettable golf experiences to be found anywhere.

Cyprus, Paphos –Greece doesn’t naturally spring to mind when discussing great European golf destinations, however, the Aphrodite Hills Hotel and adjoining golf course on the island of Cyprus offers the perfect mixes of luxury, relaxation, golf, and dramatic scenery.

Perhaps not among the most demanding of golf courses, this drawback is easily countered by the course’s design as it meanders through native olive and carob trees over two central plateaus bisected by a spectacular ravine. There is one level of difficulty here that you might not encounter on many other courses, and that is the enchanting views from the hilltops of Paphos that are sure to distract even the most concentrated of golfers. The course, and hotel, are the perfect relaxing getaway for both golf and family entertainment, and all within easy access using a charter jet service.
