GOLF IN the Algarve is being promoted in television campaigns in the UK and Germany until the end of March.

British sports channel Setanta and Premiere Germany will feature 203 20-second segments about Algarve golf to be aired during the coverage of the European Tour, US Tour and WGC Accenture Match Play Championship.

The UK and Germany have been targeted as they are the principal markets of tourists coming to the Algarve.

In 2006, more than one million rounds of golf were played.
