News from our PGA Professional Ryan Fitzgerald

As you may have seen our PGA Professional Ryan Fitzgerald has been representing Cuckfield Golf Centre in the Golf Villa Rentals Pro Am in Portugal with two of his clients this week.

The event consists of two rounds in a pro am format, one round at Monte Rei Golf Club and the other at Quinta Do Vale.

Monte Rei is voted number 1 in Portugal and number 12 in Europe. Quinta Do Vale is a Seve Ballesteros design course that consists of a very challenging 6 par 3s, 6 Par 4s and 6 par 5s. Both course provide there own tests with big ravines either side of the fairways to slick greens and deep bunkering. The team finished respectably with 69 points and 68 points, the leader had 80 points and 83 points and won by some clear margin.

The final round was a pairs event for the amateurs and a Pro only shootout over 18 holes off the back tees at Monte Rei.

Ryan was fortunate enough to play with former European player Simon Dyson. Simon has won 6 times on the European Tour and managed to get to number 26 in the world leading to his career earning being way over the £10million.

Ryan said it was a great battle with the two of them 1 shot away from each other most of the round. Ryan made a costly double bogey on 17 to end his chances of taking the title. Simon shot a very decent -1 in tough conditions and Ryan finished 2nd and 4 shots back. The closest to the pair was next in at plus 6 so you can see that it was very tough.

If you are planning on going away then please contact Ryan as he will put you in touch with Paul at Golf Villa Rentals and get you the cheapest price possible.

Overseas coaching trips will be back from next year fingers crossed so keep an eye on social media and monthly newsletter.
