Estoi Palace International Rotary Club held its 4th Annual Charity Golf day at Monte Rei Golf and Country Club on Sunday 28th August. 66 players played an individual 18 hole stableford with Monte Rei providing its usual excellent service to all the participants including practice facilities and breakfast prior to the start. During the round payers were able to participate in the ‘beat the pro’ competition on the 9th, 6 players were delighted to achieve this feat.
After play a welcome drink supplied by our main sponsor ‘About Wine’ was followed by lunch at the bar restaurant overlooking the golf course. Golfers were then able to enjoy the ‘Rory McIlroy’ washing machine challenge on the lawns in front of the restaurant, congratulations to winner Brendan Kelly with a score of 15 points
Our prizes were provided by ‘About Wine’, a boutique wine shop in Faro, run by a young professional couple, Alexandra and Luis. There was a silent auction with prizes including a week at vale do Lobo, a Fine Dining voucher, football memorabilia and a signed 18th hole flag by Tom Watson from his final open Championship appearance
Many happy golfers left at the end of the day and keen to participate again next year, many thanks to Monte Rei Golf and Country Club for their superb professionalism in helping our Rotary Club deliver another very successful event, a big thank you to our sponsors Avalon and ‘About Wine’ who delivered such excellent prizes for the event and to those who supported us in other ways including Fine Dining. Congratulations to the winners Brendan Kelly and Zoe Pirrett and thanks to everyone one who participated and contributed to enable us to help the underprivileged in our community including Estoi Lar Community Centre, Refood, Milk for the Faro Food Bank and the other projects we support.
