Cocooned and cooped up as we are, laughter is the best medicine to get through it. Here's a few crackers that should bring a smile to your face, though some are a little too close to the bone!

Where does a system reboot leave us?

The reset button has effectively been hit on the 2020 season. The question is, what game progress has been saved and what glitches have been removed when the system reboots?

Dom Pedro Hotels and Golf Collection has begun a major €4.5 million upgrade of its five championship golf courses, meaning there has never been a better time to be heading to the Algarve to tee it up this summer.

Headlining the world-class venue’s investment is the addition of 60 brand-new GPS-enabled golf carts from the industry-leading Club Car, aimed at improving the comfort of players’ rounds as they experience everything that Dom Pedro has to offer.

For those looking to work on their game before hitting the links, Dom Pedro has increased the size of the Victoria Course’s chipping area that, not only makes it ideal for the professionals warming up ahead of the annual Portugal Masters, also ensures everyone can experience European Tour quality practice facilities all-year round. This is in addition to the revamped tees at the Old Course driving range, meaning there is never an excuse for not working on your game during a visit to Dom Pedro.

Step out on the course and the changes are perhaps a little more subtle, following landscaping work and the planting of trees on the Victoria Course to ensure it plays its best going forward. In addition, not only have they strategically thinned out the trees in certain places on the Old, Millennium and Pinhal courses to make it easier than ever to play from the better maintained turf, the edges of the lakes have also been manicured to bring the hazards more into play and create a neater visual.

Pietro Dal Fabbro, CEO of Dom Pedro Golf, said: “This is the biggest investment we have made in recent years and only enhances our position as one of Europe’s most impressive golfing destinations. As we embark on another busy season, culminating with our hosting of the Portugal Masters in October, we’ve never been more excited for golfers of every standard to come and experience Dom Pedro.”

Further proof of Dom Pedro’s commitment to improving the guest experience is evident when heading off the course after a round. Golfers can head to the recently renovated terraces at both the Pinhal and Victoria courses for a relaxing drink in the sun, as they soak in the tranquillity of the Algarve. Renovation work on the pro shop is also set to begin soon, allowing guests to browse the range of branded merchandise housed at Dom Pedro in even greater comfort.
