WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT FLORESTA PARQUE GC HAVE FINISHED FIFTH IN THIS YEARS INTERCLUB LEAGUE COMPETITION FINISHING BEHIND THE NEW 2019 CHAMPIONS BOAVISTA AND WE OFFER OUR CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM. WE ARE DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE BY ONLY FINISHING 5TH IN THE TOP DIVISION WE ARE TO BE RELEGATED TO DIVISION 2 FOR NEXT YEAR’S COMPETITION. WE WERE THE LAST TEAM IN THE WHOLE OF THE INTERCLUB NEVER TO HAVE PLATED OUTSIDE OF THE FIRST DIVISION AND THAT PROUD RECORD IS NOW GONE.

THIS SERVES AS AN ILLUSTRATION OF HOW INCREASINGLY COMPETITIVE THE INTERLEAGUE HAS BECOME WITH THE STANDARD OF GOLF CONSTANTLY RISING. THERE ARE NO EASY GAMES ANYMORE. WE FAILED TO PRODUCE SUFFICIENTLY DOMINANT RESULTS AT HOME AND PERHAPS THIS IS A REFLECTION THAT SIDES THAT NOW COME TO PLAY OUR COURSE HAVE GREATER KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE OF IT.

WE ARE RELEGATED ALONGSIDE SERRA DE MONCHIQUE, WHO ARE THIS YEARS KNOCKOUT CUP CHAMPIONS!, AND OUR LOCAL FRIENDS PALMARES. WE WILL BE COMPETING AGAINST ALTO CLUB, VALE DE LOBO AND LEVANTE PROMOTED FROM DIVISION 3. IT IS LIKELY THAT QUINTA DO LAGO WILL BE THE SIDE THAT REMAINS IN DIVISION 2. SO LOOKING FOR A SILVER LINING WE HAVE SOME FANTASTIC COURSES TO PLAY NEXT YEAR AGAINST SOME GREAT RIVALS WHO ALWAYS PLAY WITH THE GREAT SPIRIT THAT MAKES THE INTERCLUB SO ENJOYABLE.

23 DIFFERENT PLAYERS HAVE PLAYED IN THE FLORESTA PARQUE TEAM THIS YEAR AND THEY ARE ALL THANKED FOR THEIR CONTRIBUTION. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE ALL THE SUPPORT WE HAVE RECEIVED PLAYING, NOT ONLY AT HOME, BUT AWAY AS WELL. IT MAKES A GREAT DIFFERENCE! WE LOOK FORWARD WITH DETERMINATION AND EXCITEMENT TO SECURING PROMOTION BACK TO THE TOP DIVISION WHERE WE BELONG!
