GET YOUR NAME DOWN NOW FOR THE FIRST TOURNAMENT OF 2020
FEBRUARY 28TH PALMARES *** MAJOR.
MARCH 27th P.A. GOLF THE ST PATRICKS DAY CUP
Not easy for Steve J having seen his side go down 18-10 and has pledged to come back stronger in 2020.
A brillant team effort by Europe in overcoming a very strong GB team and winning our very first Ryder Cup.
Our group comprises of 90 of the finest senior amateur golfers in the Algarve representing 20 different clubs. The society meets on the last friday of each month to compete in a singles medal on many of the best courses across the Algarve. The society is open to Amateur golfers with a single figure handicap at the time of entry for each competition. Annual membership fee of €10 and competition green fees to be subsidised via the CNIG scheme and generous discounts kindly offered from the various courses. Each month there will be substantial cash prizes for Best Gross and Best Nett scores and each months results will go towards our Order of Merit champion to be decided in December during our end of year Tour Championship. There will be SIX MAJOR TROPHIES to be played for by selected dates and on different courses kindly sponsored by individual members. These MAJORS marked * on our Events page will carry extra Order of Merit points
These majors will carry extra Order of Merit points for the top 5 nett players. The OM champion will be the player who accumulates the most points taken from 6 of his best results throughout the year. Points (10-1) will be allocated to the top ten nett scores each month.
It is hoped that everyone who wishes to play each month will get to play but if any event exceeds the number of tee times available then the lowest handicapped players will get the priority. This is the only fair way we can control the entry list.
