Algarve Golf Trophy starts in Ireland
July 29, 2011

The first three Algarve Golf Trophy events of the 2011 series have taken place at Castleknock Golf Club (Dublin), Headfort Golf Club (Kells) and Malone Golf Club (Belfast), with a fantastic turn out of over 500 golfers over the three days.

The series started with an open stableford event at the stunning Castleknock Golf Club.  Giovanni Pezzillo topped the leaderboard with a fantastic 42 points and in the gross competition, Stephen Cunningham carded 73 to come out on top.

On the next day, a field of over 150 competed in the individual men's open on Headfort's stunning New Course.  In the nett competition, home player Wesley Burke beat the field by 2 points with 43 points.  In the gross competition, last year's grand finalist, Derry Hunt, was just beaten at the top of the leaderboard by Thomas Hogan, who came in with 36 points.

On the final day, the Trophy moved north of the border to Belfast and to Malone Golf Club.  The individual men's competition was part of Malone's Open Week and over 200 players took part.  The winner was Sean Beattie, who scored a fantastic 40 points.  Playing off 12 and from Bangor Golf Club, Sean won by one point from Belvoir's Christopher Chittick, playing off 6.

A host of prizes were presented to the top players with the winners qualifying for the grand final, which will be held in the stunning setting of the Algarve.  Competitors will enjoy three nights accommodation, two rounds of golf, welcome party and a prize presentation gala dinner in the stunning Algarve. 

The winners from the events held UK and Ireland this year will be joined in Portugal by winners from the other Algarve Golf Trophy competitions, which are being held in Sweden and Denmark, creating a truly international final.
