The 1st European Architects Cup took place on December 6th at Quinta de Cima course, in Algarve. The event, played in pairs, was sponsored by the Grespanaria Group, which owns the Love Tiles and Margres brands, and is the oldest sponsor of Clube de Golf dos Arquitectos.
The aim of CG Arquitectos was to provide an interaction between national and international players who regularly follow the club's activities.
Focusing on the social aspect, but without neglecting competitiveness, the tournament was played in the “four ball better ball” pairs modality, with the handicap adjusted. Despite some climatic uncertainty, the event was well played, in a very technical course, long and very well treated.
The day ended with a convivial dinner, which also served to reward the top three. The first place went to the duo José Bessa Gomes and Arturo del Diego Suarez, with 41 Net points. The second was given to Rita Vasconcellos / Vicente Gouveia, with 39 Net points. In third, was the pair José Madeira and João Loja Fernandes, also with 39 Net points.
