Golf in Portugal
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!!
This cache is placed alongside a track which runs alongside The Resort course at Penina. N.B. It is not a circular walk, and their is no need to cross the course at any point. Golf is a dangerous game if you are not sure where you are going, keep to the track outside the boundary fence of the golf course at all times, returning after the cache
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 a camo plastic tub, adjacent to Tee 6/15, which can take small TBs, located at a bridge beside the track. There is no need to wander onto the golf course. Bring your own pen, and please replace as found
Happy golfing and geocaching!
