this week in golf

Having recently hosted its 10th Portugal Masters at its Victoria Course, Oceânico Golf and Vilamoura is preparing for its next event - the EDGA Handi-Junior golf event on the Millennium course on the 4th December.

The event is a key tournament in the Algarve Tourism Authorities ‘Golf4All’ campaign, a project which is dedicated to bridging the divisions in golf by promoting the accessibility of the sport to everyone, regardless of age, gender, skill or impairment.


David Howell's Caddy Offering Amateur Golfers the Caddy Experience

this week in golf

Steve Brotherhood is offering amateur golfers the kind of advice he gives Tour star David Howell after 12 years of carrying a bag on the world’s top courses.

"The Tour Caddy Experience enables me to pass on skills and tips that are directly relevant to each golfer’s game, but not normally accessible to amateur players. Hopefully, my insight and knowledge will lead to lower scoring and more enjoyment on the course.” A two-hour Tour Caddy Experience with Steve Brotherhood starts at £60 for a limited time only.
