The 2018 cham­pi­ons of the Porto Golf Club were found with the fi­nals of the Cup Paulo Reis (Men) and the Cup Ellen Ken­dall (Ladies). Played on two days in stroke­play, the com­pe­ti­tion brought to­gether the top eight play­ers from each cat­e­gory, who were found dur­ing the match-play phase through­out the year. Maria de Lur­des Sá Soares (Ladies), Al­fredo H. An­dresen Guimarães (Se­niors), Luis Miguel Mon­tene­gro (Mid-Am­a­teurs) and Vasco Manuel Cor­reia Alves (Men) are the new cham­pi­ons. At the same course, a week later, an­ther of the iconic com­pe­ti­tions of the club were dis­puted: the Selby Cup. The com­pe­ti­tion of the ‘ban­deir­in­has’ (lit­tle flags), as it is af­fec­tion­ately called, re­wards the pair that is able to reach fur­ther in the course, af­ter ex­haust­ing the strokes of its hand­i­cap. This po­si­tion is then marked by a flag. The pair that put the flag far­ther on the course were the team made up of Alexan­dre Ma­gal­hães / Jaime Sá who man­aged to reach the 18th green. In sec­ond place were the duo Manuel Vi­o­las / Al­fredo Almeida (also on the 18th green), and third, Elza Oliveira and An­tónio Fer­nando Oliveira, who left the flag near the 18th green.

Os campeões 2018 do Oporto Golf Club foram en­con­tra­dos com a re­al­iza­ção das fi­nalís­si­mas da Taça Paulo Reis (homens) e da Taça Ellen Ken­dall (sen­ho­ras). Jo­gadas em dois dias, em stroke­play, a com­petição re­uniu os oito mel­hores jo­gadores de cada cat­e­go­ria, que foram en­con­tra­dos du­rante a fase de match-play ao longo do ano. Maria de Lur­des Sá Soares (Sen­ho­ras), Al­fredo H. An­dresen Guimarães (Se­niores), Luis Miguel Mon­tene­gro (Mid-Am­a­teurs) e Vasco Manuel Cor­reia Alves (Homens) são os novos campeões. No mesmo campo, uma se­m­ana de­pois, dis­putou-se out­ras das com­petições icóni­cas do clube: a Taça Selby. A com­petição das ban­deir­in­has, como é car­in­hosa­mente chamada, pre­meia o par que con­seguir chegar mais longe no campo, após es­go­tar as pan­cadas do seu hand­i­cap. Essa posição é de­pois mar­cada por uma ban­deira. O par que colo­cou a ban­deira mais longe no per­curso, foi a equipa con­sti­tuída por Alexan­dre Ma­gal­hães / Jaime Sá que con­seguiram atin­gir o green do 18. Em se­gundo lu­gar fi­cou Manuel Vi­o­las / Al­fredo Almeida (tam­bém no green do 18), e em ter­ceiro Elza Oliveira e An­tónio Fer­nando Oliveira, com a ban­deira perto green do 18.
