Those of you who know an avid golfer will know that they can become quite obsessive about their chosen sport. Not satisfied to spend their weekends and spare time on the links, they also like to head off on golfing holidays to experience golf in other countries. Many countries have tapped into the lucrative golfing holidays market and no country has done this quite as well as Portugal.
Portugal is ideal for golfers, as there are numerous courses across the country and the good all year weather means that there is ample opportunity to get out and about without the need for the giant umbrellas that are a necessary part of a round of golf in the UK. But another reason Portugal is great for golfers is that there is so much to do for the non-golfers in the family that the whole family can go away and no-one will get bored. Whilst the golfer is working their way around the courses, the rest of the family can explore, shop, relax on the beach or indulge in one of the many other sports on offer in the country.
It is the choice on offer for the non-golfers that encouraged me and my husband to buy a timeshare out here, as he could clear off to get his fix and the kids and I could enjoy the myriad other captivities. Of course, he didn't spend the whole of the time away from us, but it provided a great compromise. When we decided to move on and look at other places, we came to realise that we had no idea how to sell a timeshare. We knew that we'd be ok for buyers, as other golfers would jump at the chance to stay here, but we didn't know how to get in touch with them. We eventually settled on using the professional services of a timeshare resales company, who knew just what was needed to market our timeshare and how to find us a buyer.
Whilst we may have moved on from Portugal, we are still in the world of timeshare and have settled on our new island of Tenerife; another golfing paradise. When the time comes to move on from here, we at least know to use the same company, since they know how find us a buyer quickly and will get us the best possible price.
