Nicolai Friedrich was born in Offenbach, Frankfurt, in 1976. Even at nursery school, he was fascinated by magic. In 1997, he was named magician of the year by the German magicians’ association, Magischer Zirkel von Deutschland. In 1998, he received the Sarmoti Award from Siegfried & Roy in Las Vegas. In 1999, David Copperfield acquired the exclusive US television rights to Nicolai Friedrich’s original effect “Das Lächeln der Mona Lisa”. At the World Championship of Magic in Peking, Nicolai Friedrich was awarded the prize for the best performance in mentalism. Alongside his career as a magician – and to put his mother’s mind at ease – Nicolai Friedrich passed two examinations in law with flying colours and has been a licensed lawyer in Frankfurt since 2005.
However, his main passion remains magic. In addition to numerous TV appearances in Germany and abroad, Nicolai Friedrich has made an excellent name for himself as an author and speaker in the professional world.
Take the chance and watch this master magician closely.
Fri 05.10 Ponta Delgada – Batalha Golf Club
Where the green of the land meets the blue of the ocean, a historic landscape awaits you. This course, designed by Cameron Powell in 1986, offers 27 holes of golf laid out over 120 há, with its magnificent setting, nestling on the skirts of the surrounding hills and with sweeping views to the ocean – has large flowing greens, wide and generous fairways and sinuously contoured bunkers.
Sat 06.10 Terceira – Clube de Golfe da Ilha Terceira
The simplest golf course of the Azores is very high up. It is situated 300 m (984 ft) above sea level on a mountain plateau overlooking the surrounding region. You really have to concentrate hard on your game when playing on the wide fairways, since the constantly changing views can be very distracting.
Mon 08.10 Funchal (Madeira) – Palheiro Golf
This course requires “all-terrain” players! That is because the 18 fairways take you through the Palheiro Estate with all its beautiful flowers and lush vegetation. Here you will have some fairly sizeable height differences to contend with. Even the clubhouse at the end of the course is 500 m (1,640 ft) above sea level. These elevations provide plenty of breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
Thu 11.10 Tenerife – Buenavista Golf
The Spanish golfing legend Severiano Ballesteros created a monument to himself here, declaring that he had designed a unique golf course. The 18-hole course (par 72) may only be 6,019 m (19,747 ft) long, but it stands out thanks to its exposed location in the north-west of the island, running directly along the cliffs towards the Atlantic. As a result, five of the 18 greens end with a breathtaking ocean panorama. Depending on the time of year, the terrain on the fairways can be very hard, since there is not always enough water available on the island to irrigate the course.
