Each handicap division plays on three different courses, and this time those used were the Vilamoura Old Course, Pinhal and Millennium. As usual there were a large contingent of players from all over Europe and the overall net winner was Fernando Serpa, a member of the Aroeira Club located near Lisbon. Fernando Serpa had a close battle with Wolfgang Lang from Germany and the final result was decided only after a playoff.
