Geocache Description:


No golf course here, but use your imagination! A par 3 over the water? Would your ball end up in the water, find the green, or end up in the rough? Could you even get a hole in one?? This leafy square provides a nice walk for the dog walkers, pause for the view over the lake.

The Algarve is a golfers delight with around 80 golf courses and academies scattered along the Algarve region, with some of the best courses in the Lagos area. The first golf course appeared in the 1920's in between Portimao and Praia da Rocha, but didnt have greens made of grass, lack of fresh water meant that the 'greens' were made from sand and oil! The first proper golf course opened in 1966 at Penina, just a few kilomatres away from Lagos, and was designed by Sir Henry Cotton, who enjoyed the later years of his life in the area, and could be seen on the course with his caddy, his clubs draped over the back of a donkey!! The Championship course is still one of the finest tests of golf in the region.

This cache is the first of a series of caches with a golf theme that will take you to some of the best golf courses in the region.

This is a small container, at GZ you have to ask yourself did the ball go into the water, did it find the green, end up in the rough, or was it indeed a hole in one!!! Please bring your own pen, and replace exactly as found.

Happy golfing and geocaching!
