Record breakers at inaugural Pro Am golf series

More than 80 players, professionals and amateurs alike, took part in the inaugural Blevins Franks Pro Am Golf Series at the Alamos Golf Course at CS Golf Morgado de Reguengo near Monchique on February 6. 

Despite the recent rain, work by the grounds staff ensured that the fairways were in good condition. The greens were described as “a bit wooly” making the results all the more remarkable.
