Golf Santo António, at Parque da Floresta, held their annual Autumn Festival on the last week of September. The festival, which ran over six days, comprised of a combination of events, Singles, Scramble, Pairs, Dubai and Am Am competitions. This year’s Festival was a resounding success and attracted well over 670 entries.
The countdown has started to the 12th Edition of The Portugal Masters, which will take place from 20th to 23rd September 2018 at The Dom Pedro Victoria Course in Vilamoura, and Golf for Greys are now recruiting volunteers to make the event its usual success.
Golf for Greys began recruiting volunteers for European Tour events in 2005, when Eddie Pilkington and the late John Hawker, founders of Golf for Greys, contacted their members to help. This event was the WGC World Cup which took place at the newly opened Vilamoura Victoria course with Wales winning a rain affected event.
The 2nd Pepe Gancedo Trophy was played at Santo Antonio golf course on 12th August.
Pepe Gancedo (1938-2016) was the course architect for the Parque da Floresta golf course which opened in 1987. One of Spain´s most famous golf course architects, his design philosophy was to make courses enjoyable, traditional, challenging and memorable, with minimal alteration to the existing terrain. To commemorate his work, the competition was played for the first time on the 30th anniversary of the course opening and the intention is that this will become a popular annual event for golfers in the Algarve.

The Guadiana Challenge was born in September 2014 when Nick Robinson and a friend stand up paddled 32km from Mértola to Alcoutim.
This was such an incredible trip that he couldn't wait to share it with other, like minded paddlers. Nick posted details of the journey on his Algarve SUP website and a few people asked to be notified of when he was going down again. He hadn't planned anything but thought how incredible it would be to do the trip with a group of people.
