Monthly Report

November saw the usual Foursomes Championship played over two days; congratulations go to Declan Quilligan and Rie Cherubini on becoming the new champions with a score of 149 nett. Tim and Susan Russell won the Gross after having fought for the title up to the last green. Congratulations also go to Thérèse Van Doorn who won the Autumn Medal Rosebowl with a score of 71, and Robert Lester, who was successful in the St Andrews Stableford with a score of 34 points.

I must apologize for not mentioning it in the last newsletter, as we had one of our very dear members of the club pass away on 9th October 2015, Mr. Doug Golding. We will miss him dearly in the club and I would like to send my sentiment to his wife Diane and family.

In early December, we hosted two Pro Tournaments from the Portugal Algarve Pro Tour, which has started this year and will be building up over the years to come. We had 40 players and Sam Robertshaw won the first edition with 7 under par in two rounds, while Ryan Boyns won the second edition with 9 under par in two rounds. We are looking to develop tournaments with the Portugal Algarve Pro Tour for next year including Pro Ams, which will be open at a special rate for Pinheiros Altos members.

Ladies Section

Cathy Harper

At the beginning of November, we played our last Ladies Friendly of the year against Laranjal. The conditions were difficult as many of the bunkers were flooded, but we remained dry in our defeat! We look forward to playing them at Pinheiros Altos next year and hopefully, reversing the result.

The Foursomes Championship was played a week later. There was a good entry with the worthy winners being Declan Quilligan and Rie Cherubini, who managed to beat Tim and Susan Russell in a closely fought competition. There was only one all-lady team and congratulations must go to Meg Black and Melody Cotterill for winning a prize with an excellent score on the second day.

Stewart and I should have played three charity challenges this month but two have had to be rescheduled and we look forward to playing them before Christmas. We did play against John and Molly Wainwright, who played amazingly well over the front nine. We had to work hard to pull back the score for a close win. Thanks to the Wainwrights for giving us a good game and an enjoyable morning golf.
