Monthly Report

July was dominated by the Sunshine Classic Gala week, which was a huge success and everyone seemed to have enjoyed it. The format was changed to a three rounds tournament for the team event, which in the end was won by the lowest handicap combination team Tim Russell and Rie Cherubini with a two points lead over Graeme and Fiona Thomson. Congratulations to Tim and Rie on their fantastic achievement during the week!

Bernadette Hardie and Ryan Luke just swept in to take the best gross score of the week, winning it on the back nine holes of the last day over Dan Henderson and Debbie Madgett. Also, for the first time we had a ladies team in a top five spot of the Gala week, so well done to Kay and Katie Ford who finished in third place overall.

The Gala week charity was geared to help the grandson of a former employee of Pinheiros Altos and we managed to raise €1,000 during the week. A further €2,000 has been collected since through anonymous donations, and I would like to thank everyone for their generosity towards such a good cause.

Ladies Section

The extremely hot weather continued throughout July and the result of this was that slightly fewer ladies played in the weekly competitions. The first division medal was won by Leigh Anderson with a nett 70 and second division was won by Pat Murrish with a nett 75. The July Stableford was won by Hilary Jessop with 36 points and second division by Shirley Griffiths with 35 points. Well done ladies.

At the beginning of July, Sue and Andy Georges organised a very successful trip to Royal Obidos, where we stayed in a very pleasant hotel. The course was a challenge but everyone enjoyed the outing and I would like to thank Sue and Andy for their excellent organisation.

On July the 16th, the ladies team enjoyed their match against Levante, playing Quinta da Ria, the prettier of the two courses there. When the golf became difficult, at least we could enjoy the lovely views. Their team treated us to an excellent lunch and we returned home happy with the result, which was a friendly draw.
