During my years at EMI I was invited to Beastie Boys’ Hello Nasty release party. Of all the capitals in Europe the guys had chosen Lisbon as party venue for all EMI’s music executives.
Why Lisbon? – I asked Adam Yauch. In 1998 Lisbon was far from happening on the tourist scene… …
Because of all the Golf… he said.
Very little street and very little rock ‘n’ roll I thought. But back then I ‘didn’t know they were golfing pilgrims like Flea, Alice Cooper, Eddie Van Halen and a lot of other of my heroes.
The variety of golf courses in Lisbon Region is very high. There are links courses like Oitavos Dunes Natural Links Golf, woodland courses like Aroeira I & II, hilly golf courses like Penha Longa Resort and parkland courses like Quinta do Peru Golf & Country Club. And all within close proximity of the beautiful city of Lisbon.
