Algarve Golf News October 2005

Sat, 1st Oct 2005
The most important golfing fixture in the Algarve in October will be the 'European PGA Seniors Open of Portugal' at Quinta de Cima, from the 7th to the 9th. The race for that Tour's Order of Merit is heating up, with Carl Mason seeking a 3rd consecutive title, although we are led to believe that a niggling back problem is hampering his efforts. Sam Torrance, currently lying 2nd is his main rival and hopefully both will be here to attract numerous spectators to the course near Tavira. Several of the senior professionals will be back in the Algarve in November for the Tour's 'Qualifying School'. The 1st Stage will be hosted by the Pinheiros Altos and Gramacho courses, before the finals on the Vale de Pinta near Carvoeiro.

Player will be able to play their Scrambles on either the Sunday 30th or Monday 31st October. There are many prizes to be won, for both daily and overall net scores, and overall best gross scores for ladies and gents.
