Saturday the 24th Oct saw the 2020 running of the Serra de Monchique Golf Club President’s Day competition. The Seattle Shambles event saw 76 players (19 teams) competing to get their names on the honours board. After a chilly start the sun shone and the combination of little wind along with a well prepared course the conditions were just about perfect for golf. When the cards were returned it proved to be a competitive affair at the top of the leader board with the top seven teams being separated by only 3 points!
