Golf in Portugal
The Algarve is a golfers delight with around 80 golf courses and academies scattered along the Algarve region. 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!!
Santo Antonio is the farthest west golf course in the Algarve, and is situated near Salema, with an impressive housing area surrounding the course
