  • BIRDIES TOURNAMENT 28-01-2018

    The Viseu Golf Club organised an unusual golf competition at Montebelo and we agree from our point of view that we’ve never participated in such a type of tournament. It consisted of a team competition (4 chosen elements, 2 low handicaps and 2 high) in which the best of 4 was chosen and participants would end the hole with his/her own ball, counting only the net birdies, when the eagle counted doubly and the albatross triple. The winning team reached 54 and was made up of Carlos Duarte (7), Manuel Cardoso (10) Paulo Ramos (16) and Francisco Lopes (21), followed by 41 for the team of Paulo Domingues (6), José Pinto (7), Paulo Neves (6) and Mário Luís (22), completing the last place of the podium headed by Jorge Sousa (6) with 38 made up by Carlos Ferreira (9), Filipe Fernandes (13) and António Martins (10). José de Oliveira, Elisabete Pinto, José Pinto and Paulo Ramos had the greatest blows in holes 3, 8, 12 and 17 respectively.

  • 1ST SENIOR RANKING TOURNAMENT 03-01-2018

    Drizzle during the championship, dense fog for roughly half and a logistically complicated course were the main reason for less successful results in this 1st competition of the year. José Marques stepped up to stand out and clearly won the two classifying scoreboards, both part of the adjusted score (36 points) and the gross with 24 points. Following in the net field were José Alves and Francisco Lopes with 32, Samuel Barros, Jacinto Pinto 29, Carlos  Aleixo 28 as well as José Ramalheira and Luís Chaves 27, whereas António Moita with 8 points, Samuel Barros with 9 and José Artur with 13 were left on the actual scoreboard. Special prizes went to Samuel Barros who had the most accurate shot on hole 12 and Luís Chaves who achieved the longest shot on hole 5. As this year the 10th anniversary of the seniors’ group will be celebrated, the "alma mater", Idalina Cardoso, Samuel Barros and José Marques will undertake to hold a commemorative tournament on the 4th of April (the 1st was on the 4th of April 2008), although they are open to suggestions as to how to further brighten and give visibility to the historic event.

  • QUINTA DA FATA TOURNAMENT 25-03-2017

    Luiz Albuquerque and Paulo Domingues were the leading players at the Quinta da Fata Tournament organized by CG Viseu, part of the OM of the Club Vieseense. Fifty menbers of the Beira region association played in the tournament on Montebelo’s Caramulo course using stableford/full handicap. The currently flawless greens were a great help in reaching these strong scores, although the changing weather throughout the tournament (wind, cold, rain and sun) may have been the biggest handicap for the players.

    Paulo Domingues and Carlos Aleixo scored 40 points, but Paulo Domingues was the winner due the best second lap. In the following positions were: João Andrade with 38 points and Carlos Tinoco, José Gonçalves and Luiz Albuquerque all on par for the course. The overall victory (without taking into account handicap) was for Luiz Albuquerque, who imposed his handicap (4) to finish with 32 points, leaving the closest competitor Paulo Domingues 8 points behind in addition to Carlos Tinoco and José Marques at 9 points behind.

    Besides Luiz Albuquerque with the grand prize and the longest stroke, were also awarded: Paulo Domingos, João Andrade and Carlos Aleixo (1st, 2nd and 3rd category champions), Gay Adamson (1st ladies), Carlos Tinoco (1st senior) and Rui Cabral (ball closest to the flag). The award-winning Quinta da Fata wines were once again recognized for their quality, as they were consumed by everyone present, both in the field bar and at lunch, and there were also several lucky ones who took some home to enjoy, as they were given out in a drawing.
