Born in Quarteira, Albano Rodrigues' passion for golf arose at the tender age of 16, when he started as Peter McGuiness' (Golf Professional) Assistant, in Vale do Lobo. He speaks fluent English and French; and can carry a golf conversation in both German and Italian.

In December of 1978, he took the Golf Professional examination, being judged by Dick Greenway, Sid Collins and Rey Cox, Albano Rodrigues passed his exam with distinction! Before dedicating himself to teaching golf, Albano Rodrigues participated in a few Portugal Opens.

Asking Albano Rodrigues his opinion on his pupils and the notion of having taught numerous celebrities the game of golf, he cheerfully states:

"I convey the same passion to all my pupils, yes, it's true - I have taught quite a few international celebrities in my time, but I'd rather not name them. Personally, I consider all my pupils a celebrity!" He steadily defends that, to be a good golfer - "golf must become a passion first, then you must like learning and be prepared to train a lot!"

San Lorenzo Golf Professional for nineteen years

Albano Rodrigues has been a Golf Professional at San Lorenzo Golf Course for nineteen years, and has seen complete families play at San Lorenzo: the parents, their children and now, their grand-children…

"This most definitely portrays the type of golf course San Lorenzo is, and how golfers can really become faithful and dedicated to one course."
