The first organised club walk for some time was very well attended and brilliantly led, as always, by Keith and Alison Scott. Starting from Gregorios up and along Pedreirinha Hill finishing after 6.5kms in Vale Fuzeiros, it was filled with stunning views along the ridge, some interesting Archaeological sites along the route which had some challenging climbs and some steep descents however, they were all worth the effort.
The 34 walkers built up a hearty appetite which was just as well as the lunch at Restaurant A Grelha was fabulous and plentiful!
Past SdM Captain Des Briggs hit his first hole in one since 1996 when he holed out at the third today.
Playing slightly uphill Des hit his 5 hybrid, slightly thin to be honest, however a kind bounce and a straight roll saw his ball dissappear!
What was more impressive is that he chose the final of the Men's Singles KO comp to do it, sadly for Des the final result wasn't as spectacular as the ace, he eventually lost a very tight match 3&2 to another Past Captain Steve Edwards.

A fine gathering of Serra De Monchique GC Past Captains congregated at Silves Golf Course on Saturday for the annual past captains trophy. Ably organised by Warren Tennant. As is usual, the scores were poor, however the eventual winner, on count back, was Peter Chapman narrowly beating Desmond Briggs. Thanks also to present Captain Les Smith who ran around all weekend making sure all our requests were met.
"Not the Ryder Cup" was held on Saturday the 25th September in beautiful sunshine.
The teams were divided in as equal handicaps as Eddie could muster. The USA being dressed in red and Europe in Blue
As the teams came in it was clear Europe was in complete control and romped home with a resounding 41 1/2 points over the USA 22 1/2 points
Thank you to the wonderful Margaret and Joe O´Reilly for taking some great photos
On the Patio there was a great atmosphere as most members stayed for the presentation.
