May 2018:  We returned to this 18-hole golf course and that already says something.  Boavista Resort is just a few minutes drive from Lagos and Luz, both offering a wide choice of restaurants and places to explore.  The golf course at Boavista is, however, the main attraction and  the reason for our return. As previously mentioned, the resort offers a small driving range, an excellent short game practice area, and a golf shop.

A beautiful, well maintained course with undulating fairways, dog-legs, fast greens and an array of bunker and water hazards.  We would recommend either an electric trolley or buggy (equipped with GPS and electronic score card). Light relief from your game – take time to enjoy the spectacular views towards Lagos and the colourful landscape.

It is advisable to book well in advance and, as we experienced, the agreed tee-time can change!  The Saturday morning members competition was extremely busy hence our start time was delayed by 20 minutes.  The course was too busy resulting in a back-up of four flights at the 6th hole, waiting at each tee, and a long game of golf that day!  Also worth noting if using a buggy, the GPS system will only allow you to return to the clubhouse either by following the course back to the beginning or through to the end – no quick return through the resort.

The clubhouse terrace overlooks the 18th green and offers seating in the shade or sun, although sitting area may be restricted if competitions have taken place.

Greenfee:  €65-€96 (seasonal); 2 persons + buggy approx. €150 (low season)
