Álamos and Morgado are making an effort to help the community

Through June 30th, the Portimão golf courses Morgado and Álamos will be collecting food and clothes for those in need as part of a series of solidarity initiatives designed to benefit the local community.

“The Morgado and Álamos golf courses are carrying out a campaign to collect food in solidarity with the Social Canteen of the Paróquia da Nossa Senhora do Amparo de Portimão”, the NAU Hotels & Resort Group said in a statement.

From Monday to Friday, the community center’s dining hall serves roughly 80 meals to those in need, with a second dinner served each night. The organisation also gives out weekend baskets filled with necessities.

Food is being collected for the food reinforcement given daily and for the baskets, an initiative led by the Morgado and Alamos golf courses.

You may help by donating food items like milk, sausages, biscuits, bread, and more. At the same time, used clothing in good condition is being collected for the benefit of Cáritas Paroquial da Nossa Senhora do Amparo.

This institution provides support to several families in the area and is faced with a shortage of clothing, especially for men.

Donations are collected at the reception of golf courses, delivered weekly to beneficiary institutions, and distributed by these to needy families in the region.

On December 9th, the Portimão Firemen’s Charity Tournament, already in its fourth year, will be conducted as part of this programme. Typically, 100 people, both members and local players from the Algarve, take part in this tournament.

All funds raised from registrations and the prize auction will revert to the Firefighters. As in previous tournaments, the amount achieved will be used to enhance the fire brigade’s areas of intervention.

Portugal Golf – Fauna: golf courses are safety

San Lorenzo Golf Course. Portugal Golf, Fauna: Golf Courses Are Safety.

Fauna: golf courses are safety

Golf courses represent safety for all animals, whether they are “residents” or just passing through during migratory seasons.

There are golf courses that are authentic “reserves” due to the diversity and quantity of animals that visitors may observe while playing.

In the lakes of the S. Lourenço golf course (Quinta do Lago), next to the Ria Formosa, hundreds of birds can be seen all year round, and during the migration period, thousands of them stop off there, like at an airport… (the observation posts around the course are always very popular).

At Castro Marim Golf the diversity of birds is abundant, but the majority are rabbits and partridges, as on many other courses in the Algarve.

At this time of year, the golf courses with many fig trees (Palmares, Vale do Lobo, Vale da Pinta, Benamor, Quinta da Ria, among others) are a permanent habitat for birds.

Morgado do Reguengo e Álamos (Monchique) is the preferred resort for storks, the dominant species, but there are also frequent encounters with rabbits and partridges. Yesterday afternoon, around the lake bordering Holes 1 and 2 at Álamos, hundreds of storks sought the cool waters.

On all the golf courses, the only species that is not well received, but unfortunately “visits” many, is the wild boar, because of the huge damage it causes.
