PRE-CRUISE PROGRAMME A: LISBON – THE MELANCHOLY METROPOLIS ON THE TAGUS

Golf cruise – exclusive putting in Spain

Mon 29.06 – Cadiz –  Montenmedio Golf & Country Club
Pines, palm trees and putting lines; one of the most scenic golf courses in Spain awaits you. The wide fairways in the highlands of Cadiz are designed to make for a gentler round. But you will need to up your game on the final few meters to each hole, where tricky greens and bunkers stand between you and the flag.

Tue 30.06 – Malaga – El Parador Golf
The first golf course on the Costa del Sol was opened by the royal family in 1925. It is located right next to the sea and is highly diverse in spite of its even terrain.

Thu 02.07 – Palma de Mallorca – Alcanada GC
At this golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, you can putt amidst the tranquillity of a nature reserve and enjoy unique views over Alcudia Bay. This course is considered one of the best in Europe.
