Actual Holes Played

Record your 'pledged' holes on April 17th



EDGA is proud to have had so many players, friends and officials take part in our pledge&PLAY initiative in support of the first ever 'Golf and Health Week' and the feedback we have received from our ‘pledgers’ has been terrific.

Coordinated by The R&A, several health-related themes were promoted during the campaign week with April the 17th being dedicated to golf for the disabled.

Several themes are consistently mentioned in the comments received, Golf is fun, players feel better for being out in the fresh air and moving, sharing time with friends on the course is good, and the sense of community that brings people together.

Some players have added photos, and the number of steps they have taken, so if you are still to confirm the number of holes played then please record your holes on this page.

Prizes

We will randomly select one or more hole numbers out of the entries, and reward golfers who played those actual holes with a token of our appreciation. So please revisit this page on or after the 30th of April when we will announce the prize winners.

It was a fantastic way to start the day. Teed off at 07:00 with nobody else on the course. Played the front 9 plus the 18th and still in the office by 08:40. Enjoyed it so much that it will be a regular fixture throughout the spring, summer & autumn months.

Great day in the WAGs roll - up from 11:30. Lovely weather with 18.5 degrees high. Course full partly due to a certain Tiger and his great win at The Masters. I partnered Alan Hall playing against Sean Curry and Andy How. Alan and myself were 5 up at one point but managed to lose 1 down on the final hole. Quite a game. Great to get out in the fresh air after a long winter and looking forward to more golf now Spring has arrived.

Played with three friends two of which I had not played with for several years. Had a good match off the tips and enjoyed the excellent Quinta do Lago North Course. Also burned 1,190 calories walking the course but using a trolley cart.

Another enjoyable round, this time at the iconic Quinta South and another 1200 calories burned. With a friend from the morning round, we played with a Marco and Gonçalo. I had never met Marco before but he proved to be good company as was Gonçalo.

A final effort to play another 18 holes, this time using a buggy to take the clubs. A two-ball with Gust who also played 54 holes that took 2 hours and 15 minutes this time off the regular tees, Only 1,067 active calories burned this time.

Playing with Cae a former pro and a leading light in supporting disabled players is a great experience; lots of laughs and a great coach too!!

I am completing this for Alan. Alan is a senior member and he kindly agreed to help in our initiative.

I am completing this for Micky. Micky is a very active member of the club and is the Seniors' vice Captain. He has helped me on several occasions to help me play down at the club.

I am completing this for Derek. Derek is a seniors member and helps me with playing out on the course.

Fantastic support for disabled golf from my club and coach. Wonderful day for golfing weather and thought you'd like to see the setting of the moon to start my day. Glad to have done my bit

I was out on the course with Andy Jones, I met Andy through the English DGA and we clicked straight away, like one another our injuries and disabilities came from rugby but golf is our new connection. Today was brilliant with the course playing well and the pins in tough positions, I came in hitting an 82 and -9 for the day! The weather was outstanding and we made a day with a meal at the club house after, if it wasn’t for golf I’d not be able to compete and; there’s that fire which burns with in me to do so after competing at a high level on the Rugby pitch. Today seemed more special for me as I was helping to promote a spirt that has very much saved my mental state, it’s got me meeting amazing people and competing against some extremely talented people! That’s what made today so special, being able to give back to the game that’s helped me so much. The only word I see when I read the word disability is ability... anything is possible!
