This year, Multi Development Corp. held their prestigious invitational team event at the scenic Rocky Roquemore-designed Quinta do Peru course, between Lisbon and Setubal, south of the Tagus, ranked as Portugals second best course by the Peugeot Golf Guide. PGA Master professional Tony Bennett and family helped to organise the event which was played in a friendly atmosphere – as well as some ideal sunny weather. There were several extra prizes, especially at the par-3 holes, and a novel competition off one of the tees sponsored by Old Links Golfs rep for the Iberian Peninsula, David Sutcliffe. Contestants, using antique hickory shafted clubs, tried to play to a target line straight down the centre of the fairway, and one precision shot actually landed on it!

Gregory Bourdy - (France) Estoril Open de Portugal Oitavos Dunes,Cascais,Portugal - 3rd to 6th April, 2008 Gregory Bourdy, who began the final round in the Estoril Open of Portugal 2008 with a four stroke advantage over his playing partner, had looked down and out as he reached the turn in three over par for the day and allowed a host of players to overtake him at the top of the leaderboard. He was not to be denied though, as he dug deep and rediscovered the swing that had seen him dominate the first three rounds at the Oitavos course. Gregory Bourdy began his recovery with a birdie on the tenth hole, adding another on the 11th before taking advantage of two back nine par fives to pick up a further two strokes and move to 18 under with two holes to play. Alastair Forsyth, meanwhile, staged his own comeback after dropping two shots in his opening six holes. The Scotsman covered his remaining 12 holes in a stunning seven under par, including birdies on the two toughest holes on the course – the 17th and 18th – to set up a three way play-off. All three men made par on the 18th at the first extra hole, meaning they went back to the tee to do it all again. A pulled drive meant Alastair Forsyth could only manage a bogey five at the second time of asking, leaving Gregory Bourdy and David Howell to fight it out for the top prize. The pair halved in four once more before being taken to the 17th to try and determine a winner. Gregory Bourdy left his approach on the front edge of the green, some 30 feet from the hole, while David Howell slightly pulled his four iron second to the left of the putting surface.  The Englishman then played a poor shot leaving himself a 20 foot par putt. With Gregory Bourdy rolling his ball to within 18 inches of the cup, David Howell had to save his par to keep the tournament alive but the Englishman’s effort slipped agonizingly past to allow Gregory Bourdy a tap-in for victory. Its a fantastic feeling, said Bourdy. It was very hard at the start of the day – especially the first nine holes when I was three over. I didnt look at the leaderboards but I knew that the other players were making birdies. But at the start of the day I knew that I had to play under par – if I did that then I would have a good chance to win. So I knew that on the back nine that if I could make four or five birdies then it would be enough.
