Exclusive golf tournament took place at Quinta do Lago

Amazing golfing royalty from across the globe gathered last weekend at the Quinta do Lago, Algarve, for a three-day golf tournament. The One Green Way Invitational has quickly become the most prestigious private event in all of Europe, even in just its second year.

Picture this: the greatest players in the world competing in a private event on a flawless golf course surrounded by a surreal backdrop. Put away your daydreams; this isn’t a fairy tale; it’s the One Green Way Invitational, a mixed Pro-Am golf tournament held in Quinta do Lago North last weekend, which featured an impressive roster of golf celebrities. The total “prize money” was 332,500 Euros, with the grand prize at 55,000 Euros.

Multiple captains and vice-captains from the Ryder Cup and the Solheim Cup competed in this year’s edition. Several of the competitors have been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, while many more have won PGA or Open Championships. Bernhard Langer, José Maria Olazabal, and Colin Montgomerie are just some of the celebrities who participated in this tournament.

In the ladies, the highlight was the Mexican Laura Ochoa, who still holds the record for the most weeks in a row at the top of women’s golf, alongside other great presences such as Dame Laura Davies and Suzann Pettersen, a captain in the 2023 Solheim Cup.

Jean-Noel Bioul, the tournament’s host and an advisor to the One Green Way Board, stated in a statement before the event: “We are thrilled to organise the second ‘One Green Way Invitational’ this year. Everything about these three days of the tournament seems promising”. Sixty “legends” and sixty special guests will gather for the One Green Way Invitational.

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.
