Cape Verde: Golf Activity Holiday

An Archipelago of 10 Volcanic Islands

Although there is an 18 hole course to be found on Sao Vicente, it probably isn't worth making a special trip to the Cape Verde Islands to simply play golf. "Bald" is a good description as it is hard to tell the difference between the fairways, the "greens", the bunkers, and the dirt track road leading to it. There was a golf course on Sal made by the South African Airways staff, using salt flats, but as Espargos expanded the golf course was built on. As of January 2009, other courses have been announced, on various islands, and we will keep an eye on which materialises the first, and what they will be made of. Overall, although Cape Verde does offer some good greens for the determined golfer on holiday, there is perhaps not enough to sate those looking for lots of golf action while on vacation.j
