Serra de Monchique Golf Club was formed in 2005, at Morgado de Reguengo when the regular players were invited to form a club. There were 30 founder members and the first General Meeting of the membership was held on 8th November 2005.
The club membership developed, playing at Morgado do Reguengo course for the whole of 2006. John Hawker was the first Captain.
At the end of 2006 the club moved to Silves Course, which had just opened. Mark Ellerton was appointed Captain for 2007.
Pestana's very favourable terms of green fee arrangements led to an substantial increase in membership in 2008.
Many Northern European countries are represented, including a number of Portuguese members.
The club plays competitions on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Tuesdays are for singles competitions either as Monthly medal or Stableford Qualifier. On Thursdays some members play at Silves in a format of their own choice, but many members elect to play on the other courses within the Pestana group. On Saturdays there is a wide variety of game formats, normally as team competitions as pairs or teams of four players. There are occasional qualifying competitions on Saturdays to suit our members who are in full time employment. Our eventlist will show these.
We have many social events organised by our Social Secretary. These are held in a variety of locations and are often theme nights. Guests are most welcome at all our functions.
The Club holds Charity events from time to time. The beneficiaries are usually local charities like the Bombeiros, Madrugada, or a nearby Children's home.
