WE ARE GLAD TO ANNOUNCE THAT FLORESTA PARQUE GC HAVE FINISHED SECOND IN THIS YEARS INTERCLUB LEAGUE COMPETITION FINISHING BEHIND THE NEW 2017 CHAMPIONS ALTO CLUB PORTIMAO. ALTO CLUB HAVE FINISHED SECOND FOR THE PREVIOUS 3 YEARS AND PERHAPS IT IS FITTING THEY ARE CROWNED CHAMPIONS FOR 2017. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO OVERTAKE THEM IN OUR LAST GAME OF THE YEAR AT LAST YEARS CHAMPIONS, LEVANTE. OUR CHALLENGE WAS TO WIN ALL 5 GAMES INSIDE THE MATCH AND WITH THE AWAY WIN BONUS POINT WE COULD HAVE WON BY ONE POINT. FOUR OF THE GAMES WERE TAKEN TO THE 18TH GREEN BUT ULTIMATELY WE WERE DEFEATED 3 1/2 – 1 1/2. LEVANTE, SERRA DA MONCHIQUE AND PINHEIROS ALTOS ARE RELEGATED FROM DIVISION 1 AND REPLACED BY QUINTA DO LAGO, THIS YEARS DIVISION TWO CHAMPIONS AND INCIDENTLY THEY BEAT US IN THE FIRST ROUND OF THE KNOCKOUT CUP AT QUINTA, VILA SOL AND CARVOEIRO.

WE LOOK FORWARD WITH DETERMINATION AND EXCITEMENT TO TRYING TO RECLAIM THE CHAMPIONSHIP NEXT YEAR.
