Footballers & Cricketers

Celebrity Golf Challenge 2014


This years event will be held from Wednesday 17th Thursday 18th and Friday 19th of September in Portugal.

After the success of last years new format we have decided to keep it exactly the same as last year which means 3 rounds of competition golf.


We will have tee times on on all 3 days and we will be playing both courses at Vale Do Lobo on day one and two. There will be 10 teams going off the Ocean Course on day one and 10 teams off the Royal Course, on day two you play the opposite course. Lunch will be served at the club house at Vale Do Lobo on day one as per usual prior to the first tee times going out.

The closing dinner will be will be back at the Hotel Donna Filipa by the pool.


Celebrity Highlights 2013


Once again Alan Shearers men shone through with another comfortable win for the footballers, the series now stands at 5-2. The cricketers appointed Darren Gough as their new Captain and he led from the front with a score of 73 points but the former England fast bowler couldn't stop the defeat.  John Beresford won this years event with a great score of 76 points not bad for the smallest man on tour and the tightest shirts ever seen on a golf course.

The final points tally was Footballers 687 points Cricketers 602 points, a resounding win for the footballers.


A big thank you goes out to all our sponsors for their continued support especially Nike Golf and the Donna Filipa Hotel.  We look forward to meeting up with you again in September for round 8 of the Cricketer V Footballer Challenge.
