Golfing events for very active greys

Algarve golfing group Golf for Greys has introduced a new competition to their events agenda, which sees a ‘Hidden Holes’ prize available at each game.

A competitor must either birdie or net birdie the three holes in question. The holes are known only to the organisers and will remain the same three holes at any course until it is won.

Cathal Tully won at Penina when the prize pot had reached €110.

The Hidden Holes were 5, 10, 15 and he net birdied all three holes.  

The three hidden holes were changed and the Pot stood at €50 for the Golf for Greys’ next event which was due to be held at Vila Sol on July 26, after the Algarve Resident went to press.

If this event is not won, the pot will be carried forward to the following event, on August 1 in Silves, when it will be worth €60.
