The twelve mixed pairs who qualified from all the regional qualifying events in the UK battled for the '2008 Bader Cup' played over the Alamos course and on the Morgado course near Portimao. In the end it was Tony Stamper, who plays off a 10 handicap and his wife Dawn (26) from Keswick Golf Club in the Lake District who eased to victory with a better-ball tally of 46 Stableford points, three clear of fellow playing competitors Adam Winthrop and Lucy Eaton from Skipton in Yorkshire. The Stampers, who won their regional qualifier at Darlington GC, were unaware that this victory earned them entry into next year's final, and were naturally overjoyed at their successful campaign.

Lady Joan Bader was back in the Algarve again this November to officiate at the grand final of 'The Bader Cup'. This annual mixed-greensomes Stableford event involves 12 regional finals that are played throughout the UK and has now been staged for some 20 years. This year's grand final took place at the recently opened Alamos course with its cunningly contoured greens and a variety of interesting holes in the beautiful rural setting north of Portimao. On the day it was 8-handicapper Simon Smith and his school teacher wife Jill, members of the Rye Hill Golf Club, who produced the best rounds by carding a total of 43 points to receive the coveted cup from Lady Bader. She being the widow of the famed World War ace pilot Douglas Bader, and President of the Foundation set up in his name shortly after he passed away in 1982. Three points behind the winners were Anthony Thompson and Linda Farrington (Fishwick Hall), followed by Steven Frazer and Elizabeth Morgan (Callander) with 39 pts. The 'Douglas Bader Foundation' is a charitable institution that aids the disabled, and the many golfers have collectively raised over £300,000 during the years for its worthy cause.

On 6th and 7th of November, some local preparatory competitions are being held for the grand final on the 8th to decide the winners of the '2006 Douglas Bader Cup'. This tournament is being held under the auspices of the 'Douglas Bader Foundation' for the 20th successive year. Regional qualifying events were held throughout the UK, and the winning mixed greensome pairs in each of twelve UK regional finals during the summer earned places in the Algarve Grand Final on the Alamos course. Lady Bader OBE, widow of the famous and legendary ace pilot, attended this event last year and it is hoped she will be able to grace the event with her presence once more.

The Alamos course at Morgado de Reguengo is now in fully playable condition after its completion was seriously hindered firstly by the 2004/5 drought and then some torrential rainfalls last winter. It has several tight fairways, and a number of severely undulating greens that will test the patience of all standards of golfers. One of the first local tournaments to be held on the scenic layout is the 36-hole 'Solverde Algarve Amateur Challenge' is taking place on 1st-2nd June, simultaneously with a local PGA event at the Morgado course on the same complex. On 31st May, the amateurs in this Challenge event played in a one-on-one medal play Pro-Am with members of the Portuguese PGA.

Golf continues to expand in the Algarve and three new projects have been started. The most advanced is the Alamos course which should be ready toward the end of this year. It will be located alongside the Morgado do Reguengo course but will not have a playing length as long as the latter.

The sister course to the Morgado course in the 980-hectare Morgado do Reguengo located north of Portimao has now been seeded. Named the Golfe dos Alamos, the new course is scheduled for opening in about one year. (In case you think the name has anything to do with that famous battle, the Portuguese word 'Alamo' means nothing more than a poplar tree – but it will be a name to remember!). Golfe dos Alamos will also have smaller greens than the Morgado course which will place a premium on accurate approach shots. A new and shorter access road from the Portimao to Monchique road to the Club House and facilities is almost complete.
