The 7th and last Tournament of the Order of Merit 2021 of the Clube de Golf dos Arquitectos, took place on the Quinta da Ria golf course. The event, which brought together more than 80 players, also counted for the Taça Mitsubishi Electric I Cup, closing an intense sporting season full of activities that, despite the pandemic circumstances, was fully carried out.
There was also a tournament that was not provided for in the calendar, played in the Azores. For the year, the CGA promises an even more appealing calendar and with diversified sports, as the sanitary conditions allow.
Returning to the tournaments played at Quinta da Ria, which closed the 2021 sports calendar, they were a success. Not only for the quality of the courses played, but also for the hotel unit where most participants (players and companions) of the event, stayed. The last day ended with a dinner followed by a show at Espaço Anfiteatro provided by the wonderful staff of Robinson Quinta da Ria, who brought together partners, sponsors and friends of the CGA.
At the end, the prizes of Tournament No. 7 of the Order of Merit were handed out.

It is an old story, which seems to return now (again) in force. We were in the 90s, when Greg Norman pushed the idea of an innovative world circuit, reserved only for the best among the best.
