Algarve Golf News June 2013

Sat, 1st Jun 2013
To assist golfers playing the Algarve courses we wish to draw your attention to our Discount Golf Rates for the special category named 'Twilight' which is available on some courses and may be useful to players. The English word 'Twilight' has been misused by the courses, and can lead to a possible confusion in the minds of visiting golfers. These are special discount rates which are applied from as early in the day as 12.00 hrs. depending on the month in question and the policy of each individual course.

Peter Uihlein - (USA) Madeira Islands Open Santo de Serra - Funchal - 16th to 19th May, 2013 For golfer Peter Uihlein from the USA this win became his very first European Tour victory in 16th participation and also moved him into the Top 150 in the World Rankings. It was a close thing at the end until his nearest challenger Morton Orum Madsen from Denmark scored a double bogey on the last eightieth hole. The 23 year-old certainly is showing a lot of early golf promise.
