Swan’s cliff top location

8.15am 2nd May 2001 - Courses

The new eighteen hole course at the Boavista Resort , Lagos, in Portugal’s Algarve is advancing well. The 6,065 metre par 72 course, which also includes a range and a large golf academy, is designed by Howard Swan. Ten holes are completed and the remaining eight are nearing seeding and planting.

The golf course architect has concentrated on converting a spectacular cliff top location with outstanding vistas. All the natural stone from the site has been re-used in waterfalls and lakes and to restore many of the ancient walls on the land. Where it has been necessary to remove trees they have been transplanted into new locations elsewhere on the course.

Greens, tees and fairways are being irrigated with treated sewage effluent and all rain and irrigation water is being reclaimed through a recycling system.

The new course at Boavista is scheduled to open early in 2002 and is intended to become one of the Algarve’s best and most spectacular destinations.
