GolfSwitch / OpenTee Solutions already have some of the most iconic golf properties in Portugal available for golfers to book. The likes of San Lorenzo, Monte Rei and Quinta Do Lago have already benefited from the GolfSwitch connectivity and now two more iconic properties have joined the network.

The iconic Penina Hotel & Golf Resort, home to many a professional event over the years, was designed by Sir Henry Cotton and is situated on the westerly side of the Algarve. A traditional tree lined course amidst 360 acres of natural surroundings, the Championship course has hosted no less than 10 Portuguese Opens. Also on site is the 9 holes Resort Course where aspiring golfers can hone their skills on the short and tricky but well thought out holes. The Penina Hotel & Golf Resort is part of the JJW Hotel group, also owners of San Lorenzo and Pinheiros Altos and the hugely popular Dona Filipa Hotel.

Jo Maes, Managing Director GolfSwitch International Ltd comments: “Our proven track record with San Lorenzo helped us to convince the Penina management to connect to GolfSwitch and provide their many customers with the new option to book tee times online and connect the golf and hotel to a larger audience.”

Situated North of Lisbon, the Penha Longa Resort lies in the Southern foothills of the Sintra mountains. The nineteenth century palace, originally founded as a monastery in the 14th century and once a retreat for the Portuguese Royal Family offers 27 holes designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. With its bold drives, courageous approaches and artful greens, it is both an adrenalin rush and a soothing journey through one of Portugal’s most inspiring landscapes. The Penha Longa course opened in 1992 and also hosted the Portuguese Open on many occasions.

Jo Maes, Managing Director GolfSwitch International Ltd continues: “Again, our proven track record within the Marriott Hotel group convinced Penha Longa, a Ritz Carlton property, to team up with GolfSwitch to provide them with online tee time connectivity. We are obviously pleased that we can offer these iconic properties to the golfers worldwide.”

Both recently additions plus all other Portuguese properties connected to the GolfSwitch network can now be booked by hundreds of thousands of golfers following the integration with several of the main European travel companies like 1Golf, GolfBreaks and YourGolfTravel.
