Algarve Golf News November 2014

Sat, 1st Nov 2014
Regardless of a few days of exceptional rain and thunderstorms the Algarve has enjoyed its usual good golfing weather. Unfortunately, this unwelcome spate of weather in October was badly timed to occur just as the European Tour Portugal Masters commenced. The result was that our major event was finally reduced to a winner over only 36 holes. On the first day Nicolas Colsaerts carded a round of 60 and just one stroke short of setting a record in European Tour events. Alexander Levy lay close behind scoring a solid 63 on his round. However, on the second day Levy recorded a round of 61 and Colsaerts a 67 thus placing the Frenchman on top position of the leaderboard to eventually win the Algarve Masters. The third day was subject to rain and some thunderstorms whilst on the final day the weather made sure the course was completely unplayable. Our courses have enjoyed a busy end to the this year's season and we are already handling many bookings for 2015 for next spring, summer and autumn for players seeking their most comfortable tee times.
