This is an inter club competition between the 5 Pestana Clubs, SICG, SDM, CGCC, Alto & Vila Sol. For each round the 5 clubs field teams of 12 members playing as 6 pairs in a better ball Stableford competition. The best 5 of the 6 scores are counted at each venue and the club with the most points after the 5 rounds wins the Fermon Trophy. After each competition there is a lunch where all players are expected to attend. This normally costs no more than €15.
