Day 7 — Today play Quinta do Lago GC with 36 holes meandering through a pine forest, creating a golfing paradise. Broad fairways of lush Bermuda grass deceive you from tee to green, although a ball is rarely lost.

Day 8 — Unfortunately time to depart!


THE AZORES
(3 Nights)

THE AZORES — an archipelago of nine green, mysterious volcanic islands that lie in the middle of the Atlantic. Marvel at their beauty and slower pace of life to be found in what seems like a time warp. Add some exciting golf and you have the recipe for a great vacation!

Day 2 — Golf today on Achada das Furnas GC, designed by the famous Scottish architect Mackenzie Ross. With a perfect blend of classical and modern design the course offers a pleasant round in natural surroundings of great beauty.

Day 3 — Free day to explore or spend a couple days on the picturesque island of Terceira, said to be part of the legendary lost continent of Atlantis. Terceira GC opened in 1957 and has been a regular venue for top events. You will find lakes that cut into the fairways, small wood bridges and a pretty windmill to navigate pass! Worth spending a little more time to experience.
