Former Liverpool hitman John Aldridge recently held his annual John Aldrige Charity Golf Classic at the Oceânico Millennium and the new Oceânico Faldo, which proved a massive success.
While some of golf’s elite were teeing up at the Portugal Masters in mid-October, a host of sporting celebrities made Aldridge’s 36-hole charity event in order to raise money for chidren’s charities in Dublin, Liverpool and in the Algarve.
Former team-mate Jason MacAteer, ex-Chelsea striker David Speedie, FA Cup winner Rob Jones and champion jockey Kieron Fallon, all made the stableford competiton, but Paulo Pingo triumphed with a total of 80 points.
Aldridge said: “This was another magnificent couple of days; the golf was incredibly enjoyable and I’m absolutely delighted by the amount of money we’ve raised for charity once again.
“We certainly have the winning ingredients for this event and I can’t thank Oceânico enough for the support they give us in making this tournament possible.
As always, the courses were in magnificent condition and I know that everyone who took part thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”
The John Aldrige Charity Golf Classic has now raised a total of €160,000 since it started in 2002.
