Madeira - The first round of the Madeira Islands Open was abandoned without a ball being hit on Thursday after heavy fog enveloped the Clube de Golf do Santo da Serra.

The 1500th tournament in European Tour history will now see two rounds of action on Friday at a venue which stands at 700m above sea level.

"We abandoned play because five of the holes have been unplayable all day due to the fog," said Jose Maria Zamora, The European Tour's Tournament Director.

"Basically, 13 of the holes have been playable for much of the day but five of the holes higher up the mountain -- one, nine, 10, 11 and 18 -- have had no visibility all day."
