Penina Golf Course in Portimão, Algarve - Portugal
Penina golf in one of the oldest courses in the Algarve and a permanent living symbol to its architect and active promoter, Sir Henry Cotton. Originally paddy fields for rice growing rice have been converted into a flat challenging course and especially designed for the stronger player. Something short of half a million shrubs and trees were planted in the conversion. As the fairways are so flat Henry Cotton introduced strategically placed water hazards and bunkers to catch the unwary long hitter. It has many times been the home of the annual Portuguese Open.
