Golf in Flanders is the initiative between the Flemish Golf Federation and the Flemish Tourist Board to promote Flanders as an alternative destination for golfers. Flanders has many attributes, it's arguably one of the gourmet capitals of the world with more Michelin star restaurants per capita than anywhere else.

Destination Portugal

Portugal has always been one of the main destinations for sunny golf with the Algarve flying the flag. But over the years,  the capital of Lisbon and the historic city of Porto are trying to lure golfers away from the coastal fairways in the South of the country and attract golfers with gastronomy, culture and great golf. Their efforts are paying dividends as golfers have started discovering the courses around these major cities and EGTMA members have had the chance to go and see for themselves and generate an interest for their readers.
