Brothers to the fore

PAUL AND David Nagle, from Ireland, have recently acquired the Colina Verde golf resort with its nine-hole course near Moncarapacho, east of Faro.

The brothers immediately set about an upgrading program, employing more staff as well as refurbishing and improving the on-site restaurant. In addition, the gym has received a facelift and two new massage rooms will be completed shortly.

Together with the introduction of its own airport transfer service, Colina Verde aims to transform itself into a golf-orientated family holiday destination under its new owners.
