Portugal Masters 2012

We are going to Vilamoura for a week on 11th October and will be going to the Portugal Masters in Victoria Golf Course. I had a look at the long term forecast and it doesn't look too good. I am hoping it is too early to predict the weather. Is there any buzz around usually during the week of the Masters, and if so, where?

It's going to be warmer than Limerick for sure so at least it will be warm rain.

A lot of people come for the Masters event.

The Casino has a show running: …solverde.pt/en/events/2012/10/10/

Other than that, the usual live music like in Old Navy.

You can check the Algarve October program under 'downloads' from the following site: http://www.visitalgarve.pt/

I use www.meteo.pt for weather and it doesn't look bad next week. It will be around 25C and sunny. If you like, you can keep an eye on the 10 day forecast.

At the moment we're happy with some rain; it's washing all the dust away and it will be good for the golfcourse!

Limerickgizmo, we are there also, last year weather was lovely. We find that the long range forecast is not that accurate and often changes. Let's hope for weather like last year . The Buzz....We have noticed that the only place that is busier is Vilamoura during that period.

I don't expect that. You could ask Oceanico, who organizes the event:

We go out every year. Weather is always pretty great. Weather can only be predicted with abt great accuracy for about a week. Beyond that it's based on statistics, probability and a healthy dose of guesswork.

I'm tempted to get tickets for this as its while I'm over next week.

Does anyone know if there is car parking available?! Can't seem to find any info anywhere.

We got a taxi to the course last year. There appeared to be parking where the taxi dropped us off, but it looked limited. I don't play golf but my husband does. I like watching it and last year was my first time at the Portugal Masters. It was a most enjoyable few days. I would highly recommend it. We are arriving early on the 11th and will go to the golf for the 4 days. FTHW, thanks for the weather update. We are staying in the Old Village Prestige. Looking forward to the break.

Not to worry about parking. There's plenty of parking arranged and people attending to it.
