Rotary Club Estoi Palace International had to postpone opening online registration for this year's 8th Rotary Charity Golf Tournament at Monte Rei Golf and County Club due to the current Coronavirus crisis.
The Club is delighted to announce that as restrictions are lifted this prestigious event will be going ahead as planned on Thursday, 27th August, but with some necessary changes.
Monte Rei has been awarded the “Clean and Safe” seal by Turismo de Portugal.
A few changes to the normal format will be necessary to ensure social distancing on the course and during lunch. The proposed new format is as follows (but may be subject to change):
- Maximum number of players: 40 (reduced from 80) with teams of 4.
- No bag handling on arrival by Monte Rei staff.
- Staggered registration on the day. We will ask you to arrive at a specified time. No scorecards will be handed out but we will use an electronic score system on the buggies.
- Breakfast of tea/coffee with pastries will be served by Monte Rei staff.
- The practice range will be available for a short period.
- A fully sanitized buggy willl be provided for each player although more than one person may share a buggy if they wish.
- Instead of the usual shotgun start we will have allocated tee times, with 15 minutes between flights.
- Pre-lunch complimentary drinks on the terrace.
- Lunch in The Grill. This will be served at the table by Monte Rei staff and will include drinks, choice of starter, choice of grilled meats/fish (with vegetarian option), dessert and coffee. There will be a maximum of 20 players in the restaurant at any one time with suitable distances between the tables in accordance with government guidelines.
Monte Rei and Rotary staff will be on hand during the day to help ensure your safety and to answer any questions you may have.
The entry fee is 170€ per player. This is the less than the "Early Bird" discount price planned for payments received by the end of May as this year's tournament will be a different experience. This still represents fantastic value for a day of golf at Portugal's number 1 golf course.
Because of uncertainty caused by the pandemic and of course the difficulty in making commitments to attend events, especially if there is travel involved, online registration has been opened with immediate effect but we will not request payment until early August. If, after completing the registration, you decide you will be unable to join us on the day just let us know.
