Type of course? Hilly. So so hilly.

Pleasant staff? Yes.

Best hole? The 18th because if I tonked my drive, I was able to get on the green in two provided I avoided the bunkers on the right. I just needed one more round to make it happen!

Après golf? Delicious steak bolo de caco and coffee in the clubhouse with an amazing view over Funchal.

Nice round? We had three rounds there and they were all fantastic, especially when we worked out that we should be playing off the blue tees, not the red. The red tees made the course shorter, but also narrower, and length has never been a problem for me, while general golfing skills are.

Special memory? Charlotte birdying the 13th par 3 in front of a small audience as two elderly Portuguese players let us go through. Nice touch. Also, my irons behaved themselves for the first time since I started golf. Hurrah! 

Must play again? I could play it every day and never get bored. Views, gorgeous flowers, beautiful trees and every single hole a delight. It’s in my top 3.
