Individual Stableford Competition – Thursday 30th November 2023, NAU Morgado
On Thursday 30th November, we returned to the Morgado do Reguengo Resort where we played an individual stableford competition on the Morgado Course. Located in a valley between Portimão and Monchique, the Morgado Golf Course is challenging to golfers of all abilities. Being nearly 6,000m in length and with a par of 73, Morgado is a tough test for everyone but the generous wide fairways allow the inexperienced players the opportunity to enjoy the course. However there are many strategically placed bunkers which are well positioned to catch any errant shots from the more experienced golfers who are seeking to put their technique to the test. An overcast and breezy start to the day, along with the threat of very heavy showers and high winds for afternoon, saw 24 players take part. The swirling breeze did not help the playing conditions and with the course looking in good nick, the competition for the prizes was high. Our winner this week with a very good score of 37pts was Stuart ‘The Hoff’ Hough. There were two players tied for second place on 36pts, Tony Clarke pipping Phil Sharpe to the runners-up spot on countback over the last 9 holes. The Booby prize this week went to Nick Harker with 21pts. There were two nearest the pins played for this week. The short par four 9th hole saw Andreas Pretorius almost drive the green to set up a short chip to claim a birdie and the prize. The strong winds that had made the playing conditions difficult proved to be too tough for our groups on the long par three 17th hole, with nobody managing to hit the green. There were no two’s recorded this week so the pot rolls over to our next singles competition on the 21st December at Morgado.
Next week, on Thursday 7th December, we are playing a Pairs Texas Scramble on the Olives & Pines loops at Pinheiros Altos. The tee times are from 09:30 with a buffet breakfast being served from 08:30
