Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: Our first visit to Portugal was in 1983 when we bought a large apartment in Salema. A new golf course was being discussed and we kept in touch with the MD of the development, who like me was a charted civil engineer.
In 1987 another family and ourselves were the first to buy plots at PdF (no name in those days) long before the golf course was built.
When our son Henry was a youngster, we spent half-term and Easter holidays in the sunshine enjoying golf when the UK was less hospitable. Henry was encouraged by the members and his golf developed at PdF - all worthwhile as he has qualified as a full Member of the PGA - the photo was taken at his graduation in May 2011. Henry is the Assistant Pro at Hunstanton, my own UK club.
We all love the West Algarve - golf, swimming in our heated pool, the coastline, small coves and beaches, and the lovely restaurants - much cheaper than the UK !
