The fifth annual Silves Charity Golf Day jointly hosted by SICG and SdM was held on Friday 5th July 2019. As a result of the generosity of sponsors, members and their guests, in excess of 5,000 euros was raised for the Captain’s Charities; Algarvean Oncology Association (Cancer diagnosis and support) and Santa Casa da Misericordia de Albufeira Charity (children’s homes).
94 players enjoyed a wonderful day playing a Seattle Shambles and attempting to win a Hole in One prize. Brenda Manley came the closest on the 16th, her ball hit the flagstick and ricocheted.
The golf was followed by a BBQ lunch, fantastic entertainment from the Poor Man’s Band, a chipping competition and an auction.
Many thanks go to all sponsors, players and organisers for making the whole day so successful.
Congratulations go to the top three teams-
1. Gary Juster, Per Lars Tonstad, Hans Van De Laar, Ulla Bischoff 149
2. Per Arvidsson, Jan Vango, Anders Arvisson, Carina Lloyd 138
3. Des Briggs, Julian Lyons, Mel Huxtable, Kevin Bell 135
