TAP is a pioneer in supporting golf in Portugal
Recognising the popularity of golf, TAP started its pioneering support of the sport in Portugal over 30 years ago.
The company sponsors major national tournaments such as the Portuguese, Madeira and Algarve Opens, as well as other smaller competitions.
The TAP OPEN, launched in 1978, is an amateur tournament for TAP customers from the various destinations to which the company flies.
Over the years, thousands of golfers have made their way to Portugal to participate in this tournament, the largest amateur golf event in the country, attracting around 350 players every year.
In addition, TAP also organises a Victoria Golf Tour each year for the programme's customers, with the support of its partners. This tournament has seen considerable success, establishing itself as an essential tour for lovers of the sport.
