GET ON YOUR BIKE FOR A WHEELIE GOOD GOLF TIME AT QUINTA DA MARINHA
Golfers are being invited to saddle up and sample a thrilling new experience at
Quinta da Marinha after the Portuguese hotel became one of the first in the
country to take delivery of a fleet of new electric golf bikes.
The popular hotel in Cascais has been inundated with enquiries from players
eager to try out the new chopper-style scooters on its Robert Trent
Jones-designed 18-hole course since introducing the Green Ride bikes at the
start of the summer.
Costing £20 per person to hire for 18 holes, the scooters are not only more fun
to use than traditional golf buggies but also have the added benefit of speeding
up rounds, helping to eradicate the growing problem of slow play.
European Tour star Pedro Figueiredo became one of the first golfers to take
advantage of the bikes when he played at Quinta da Marinha last month and the
hotel’s sales director, João Pinto Coelho, is thrilled at the feedback they have
Pinto Coelho said: “Everyone that has used the bikes so far have loved them.
We’ve received a fantastic initial response and it’s easy to see why.
“Players are not only finding them great fun but also that they speed up the
game quite a bit. Buggies are great but they do tend to slow things down a bit,
especially when one player is on one side of the fairway and one’s on the other,
but there are no such problems with the bikes.”
The introduction of the electric golf bikes is the result of a partnership
between Green Ride and Quinta da Marinha which further enhances the five-star
golf experience on offer.
The Portuguese hotel celebrated its 20th birthday in style earlier this year
with a €5m overhaul of all 198 bedrooms, many communal areas and updated décor
throughout, with the extensive refurbishment being unveiled when the hotel
reopened last month following the Covid-19 pandemic.
A 30-minute drive from Lisbon in stunning Cascais, Hotel Quinta da Marinha is
part of the ‘Great Hotels of the World’ portfolio, with its Robert Trent
Jones-designed par-71 golf course offering outstanding views over the Atlantic
Ocean and the Sintra Mountains.
