Golf in Portugal
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!!
Whilst there isnt a golf course at Cascades Resort, there is a golf academy and driving range
This cache is one of a series of caches with a golf theme that will take you to some of the best golf courses in the region. It is located on waste land close to Cascades Resort, and a short walk along the excellent footpath offers magnificent views of the cliffs, sea and the lighthouse. The clifftops are dangerous. This cache is close to the path, and there is no need to go anywhere near the cliff top. The container is big enough to take small TBs, the FTF will find I have put one of mine in this cache. Bring your own pen, and please replace as found
Happy golfing and geocaching!
