Gallery for Round 4 - Islands

A great choice for the 72nd hole of Golf & Ride Portugal 2014. Certainly one of the most spectacular locations of the whole challenge. The Porto Santo course designed by Seve spans the island with the front nine holes looking over the South coast and the back nine revealing incredible views of the North side of the island. 

Former national team member and the home professional Andrew Oliveira and I, played the magnificent 175 metres long par three 13th hole. The shot across the cliff tops is challenging especially when played into the wind. This hole starts a run of four which delight the eye and challenge every player to overcome any doubt that they may have in their game. 

Porto Santo Golfe boasts a beautiful clubhouse, impressive practice facilities and a wonderful terrace. From this sanctuary it is possible to see players as they make their way home, absorb wonderful views over the South East coast and take some well earned refreshment. Porto Santo enjoys nine kilometres of sandy beach and a slow pace of life. It is certainly one of the best places I have ever come across to get away from it all. 

Our adventure will start with the ferry crossing from Funchal to Porto Santo. With nine kilometres of sandy beach and a population of just 4,500, we expect to find few places which are very busy and so will be able to enjoy a long walk, some beautiful views and an opportunity to clear our minds before playing the 72nd hole of our challenge.
