The 'Algarve Ladies Open', an official Ladies European Tour event, took place on the par-72 Gramacho Course near Carvoeiro. After the first two of the three scheduled rounds, the cut was set at 5 over par. A total of 70 players passed the cut, and leading the field going into the 3rd and final round were four players tied on 7 under par: Jade Schaeffer and Sophie Giquel from France, Australian Joanne Mills, and Louise Stahle from Sweden. The scene was set for a close finish but by the fourteenth hole it came down to a duel between Sophie Giquel and Louis Stahle, with the latter leading until she bogeyed the tricky par-four 16th after failing to get down in two from a green-side bunker. The Frenchwoman parred the hole and then sank a lengthy downhill putt for birdie on the next green to lead by a single stroke. On the decisive par-5 last hole, most of the pressure was on the Swede to try and force a playoff, but she hit her second shot into a deep bunker in front of the green. Sophie Giquel confidently struck her long-iron approach to the back fringe and then chipped to about two feet for a birdie and a 10 under par total to win her maiden victory less than four years after turning pro, and just 11 days before her 25th birthday. On the same round, Lisa Hall scored a rare albatross on the 18th, and another Lisa (Sorensen) from Denmark sank her approach to the tricky par-4 uphill fifth hole.

The important golf event of the month was the 'Portuguese Ladies Open', part of the Ladies European Tour and played over 54 holes again on the Gramacho course. The original sponsor of this event that offered the prize money of 300,000 Euros did not reach an agreement with the authorities, but happily in April an eleventh hour replacement backer was found. With the short time then still available and together with the on-going drought in the Algarve, it was difficult to put the course into the perfect playing condition required. Considering this factor and the unusual prevailing strong winds there were some excellent scores returned. After a 1st round of 5 strokes over par it seemed that Cecilia Ekelundh from Sweden would not retain the title after her maiden tournament win last year at Aroeira near Lisbon. However, she rallied with rounds of 66 and 67 winning by 3 strokes from Ludivine Kreutz of France. Aussie Cherie Byrnes and another French player Gwladys Nocera were placed a stroke further behind in equal 3rd position.
