Rotary Club Estoi Palace announces 2018 Charity Golf Tournament

Rotary Club Estoi Palace International (RCEPI) is inviting the public to participate in “an exceptional day of golf for charity” on Thursday, August 30 at the Monte Rei Golf Course and Country Club. The annual Estoi Palace Charity Golf Tournament is nearly sold out and there are only eight foursomes remaining.

This is the first year to sell out so quickly, say organisers RCEPI, who sent early-bird invitations to golfers and members of the mailing list.

The remaining foursomes are offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis through the Rotary Club Estoi Palace International website. You can register as an individual and be placed with a foursome if you do not have your own group.

The price for the tournament is €175 for each golfer and includes a continental breakfast, 18 holes of golf, golf cart, soft drinks and water on the course, lunch at the Vistas Restaurant and Terrace including awards ceremony and prizes.

Peter Zahner, the tournament chairman, said: “Participating is an easy way to contribute to charity and it represents a fabulous package deal as golf alone is only a few euros more than the entry price.”

This year’s sponsors are: Algarve Resident, Blacktower Financial Group, Clubhouse Algarve Magazine, Conrad Algarve, Porsche and The Works Printshop. More sponsors are being sought and organisers invite interested companies to visit their online page to find out more about how they can get involved.

Monte Rei Golf and Country Club is the only Jack Nicklaus course in Portugal, recently listed as one of the top courses in Europe. “You won’t want to miss this opportunity to golf for charity packed into a fun-filled day,” say organisers.

The funds raised by RCEPI help charities in the Algarve as well as international projects. The club has already supported local causes in many ways, such as help a school purchase a new oven for their culinary programme; fund a mobile breast screening unit; assist in purchasing a van for the Faro Food Bank; pay for a local milk programme; sponsor disabled community members; donate wheelchairs; send children to summer camp and fund the purchase of defibrillators for the bombeiros.
