Monthly Report

It is hard to believe that we are already in April and that we have just had another Members AGM! I would like to congratulate David Pirret, the out-going Club Captain, and Adrienne Buth, the out-going Lady Captain, on a very successful year, and welcome Stewart and Cathy Harper as the in-coming Captains. A big thank you to Graeme Thomson and Rie Cherubini, who are leaving the Golf Committee this year, and congratulations to our President Mr. David Markey on his first year in the chair.

There have been some changes to competition rules, which have been outlined in the newsletter and we now have a finalized programme for the Sunshine Classic Gala Week; the entry form for which is also in the newsletter.

March saw the Men's Pairs Matchplay, which was won by Kelvin White and Tony Hickey, while the Past Captain's Trophy was won by Keith Fletcher with 37 points... and he also won the Spring Medal played on the same day with a nett 71. The St. David's Medal was won by Sally Evans, while Tony Hickey won the St. Patrick's Day Stableford.

April will see the Strokeplay Championships and I wish you all good golfing!

Ladies Section

Cathy Harper

On the 30th of March, I "drove-in" as Lady Captain 2015... and fortunately the drive was straight and fairly respectable. Zoë Pirret and Rie Cherubini left the committee after three years hard work, and we welcomed Sue Georges and Lisa Burns onto the committee, and Helen Mills as a consultant member.

We thanked Adrienne Buth for an excellent year in office at our AGM and it was also wonderful to present her and Shona Callaghan with the Madrinha Trophy.  The Nine Hole Competition was won by Dee Hirst and Fiona Thomson, while Sally Evans won the Wainwright Trophy. Meanwhile, Hilary Jessup triumphed over Denise Reed in the Plate and the Medal was won by Sally Evans in the 1st Division and by Lisa Burns in the 2nd.

Thank you for your support - may 2015 be a year of good golf and good health for you all.
