Geocache Description:

[LVA] Slēpnis (logbook un zīmulis) neatrodas norādītajās koordinātēs. Novietots virs zemes. Velosipēdu atstāj stāvlaukumā un klubā pārvietojies tikai kājām. Netuvojies slēpnim, kad tur ir golfa spēlētāji, it īpaši nedēļas nogalēs rīta pusē. [ENG] Cache (logbook and pencil) is not located at given coordinates. Placed above Earth. Only walking allowed in golf club. Leave your transport at parking lot. Do not approach cache when golf players are nearby, especially on weekend mornings.

[LVA] Jau trīsdesmito gadu beigās Rīgas Tenisa klubā tika izveidota golfa sekcija - galvenokārt ārzemju diplomātu brīvā laika pavadīšanai. Esot bijusi pat ierādīta vieta Daugavas krastā, tagadējā Ķengaraga rajonā, taču sakarā ar nepietiekošajām zināšanām par laukuma būvi, 9 bedrītes tika atklātas tikai1940. gada vasarā. Padomju varas gados golfa spēle tika aizmirsta. Interese par golfu Latvijā atgriezās 1989. gadā, kad tika dibināta Latvijas Golfa federācija. 1995. gadā tā tika starptautiski atzīta kā Latvijas (latviešu) golfa pārstāvis. [ENG] In the end of 30’ties a golf section was created at Riga Teniss club mostly for leisure time activities of foreign diplomats. A special place on the bank of river Daugava, near nowadays Kengarags district, was devoted, but due to insufficient knowledge in course building, the first 9 holes was opened only in summer of 1940. During Soviet times golf was forgotten. An interest regarding golf in Latvia revived in 1989, when Latvian Golf Federation was established. In 1995 it became internationally recognised legal representative of Latvian golf society.

[LVA] Golfa laukums “Viesturi” ir vecākais golfa laukums Latvijā – atklāts 1998.gadā. Tas atrodas Jaunmārupē, netālu no Rīgas lidostas. Tajā ir 9 bedrītes. Šeit savus pirmos soļus spēruši daudzi Latvijas labākie golferi. Izbaudiet skatus! [ENG] Golf course “Viesturi” is the oldest golf course in Latvia – opened 1998. It is located in Jaunmarupe, nearby from Riga airport. It is 9 holes course. Many of leading golfers in Latvia have started their carrier here. Enjoy views!

[LVA] Slēpnis atrodas 50 m rādiusā no norādītajām koordinātēm. Lai atrastu izmanto Hint vai atrisini koordinātu mīklu. Ieteicamas golfa terminoloģijas zināšanas. Ja izmisis, meklē palīdzību kluba recepcijā. Lūdzu katreiz sakārtot slēpni sākotnējā stāvoklī. [ENG] Cache is located in 50 m radius from provided coordinates. To find it use Hint or solve coordinate quiz. Knowledge of golf terminology helpful. If desperate, turn for help at reception. Please keep cache in original condition.
