Floresta Parque’s Algarve Interclub Golf League victory

Floresta Parque Golf Club has won the Algarve Golf League. Having lost the first match of their season a resounding 5-0 at Boavista, Captain Bob Hart worked hard at his pairings and the team gradually succeeded in climbing up the league table.
Needing sizeable margins in the last two remaining fixtures both at home, they beat Boavista in the return match 4 ½-½ and, needing a similar result in their last match versus Morgado, astonishingly recorded a 5-0 victory to win the league on the final day and subsequently qualify for the final where they faced a tricky two leg affair against Vila Sol.
The first leg of the final held at Golf Santo António was run extremely close, with the home team taking a small 3-2 lead to Vila Sol this week for wat was always going to be a difficult return match.
However, much to their credit, the team held on for a 2 ½ – 2 ½ draw and winning overall by a narrow margin.
Santo António Golf Manager Brian Noble added: “This is a magnificent achievement, especially after a very slow start to the campaign. The team certainly worked hard and made their way to the final after a nail-biting last two matches of the league season, needing big wins. They won 4 ½-½ and 5-0 respectively! Then in the two leg final, victory was achieved in magnificent style, beating a very strong Vila Sol team at Golf Santo António, and drawing away at Vila Sol, clinching victory in the last match!”
