#GRP2014

Welcome to the fund raising site for the European Disabled Golf Association

Praia d’el Rey

The contrast of old windmills and new wind turbines coloured our ride across the mountain ranges between Lisbon and Torres Vedras. This rich agricultural land offered spectacular views through the many valleys.

The entrance to Praia d’el Rey was a welcome sight and was matched by the hospitality we received from the members who were there to greet us. PGA professional Mark Pedder and Vice-Captain Vincent Dowling joined me as we played the par 5, 10th hole. This is a truly fantastic looking hole with it’s elevated tee, offering a panoramic view across the course and the Atlantic ocean.

When playing the holes down by the sea 12-15, the breeze often carries tiny drops of sea spray and the smell of fresh air which I find irresistible.


Bom Sucesso

This Donald Steel Golf course, opened in 2008, it stretches across the design focussed resort. The first nine holes are played over broadly level land whilst the back nine are played over more undulating ground.

Golf Director Hugo Pinheiro took me to the 17th tee from where spectacular views over the Obidos Lagoon can be enjoyed. This demanding hole is at the highest point in the resort.


Royal Obidos   

Found on top of a gentle climb, the vista from the clubhouse at The Royal Obidos Spa & Golf Resort is certainly worth the effort. European Golf icon Seve Ballesteros drew the layout which took six years to complete, finally being inaugurated in 2012. The Seve wall is a must for those with an interest in one of Europes greatest Golfers.

PGA professional David Ashington and I played the par 3, 8th hole, which is protected by bunkers and a very undulating green.

This European top 100 Golf course plays six holes with views of the Obidos Lagoon whilst the remainder have views of the Atlantic ocean and the Berlengas Islands. The resort will soon boast a luxury boutique style hotel with stunning views.

Day 3 Monday March 10th

previous day      next day    

Late finish last night and early start this morning. Not sure why I didn't sleep well but perhaps tired and restless legs made sleep difficult. With the first of three courses scheduled for 15:00 hrs we will have a long ride to negotiate first.
