Monthly Report

November saw the usual Foursomes Championship played over two days and congratulations go to Paul and Meg Black on becoming the new champions with a score of 150 net. Tony and Paula Hickey won the Gross. Congratulations to all participants for taking part in what is the most difficult format of golf.

Stella Jeffrey won the November Medal, while Steven Crowdey managed to beat Stella on the back nine holes in the St Andrew's Stableford, which was also our Memorial Members Day. We also hosted two Pro Tournaments as part of the Portugal Algarve Pro Tour in early December; we had 60 players playing in some very wet weather, but all were very impressed on how well the course presented even with very difficult weather conditions.

The Christmas board is now up in the clubhouse for all to sign in for the many forthcoming events. I hope to see as many of you as possible at these competitions and social activities.

On behalf of all the staff at Pinheiros Altos I would like to wish all the members and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Medal was played on the 2nd of November... Zoe kindly looked after the day as I was home for a short visit and she played so well she won the Medal Glass in the 1st Division… well done! We won our mixed friendly with Benamor at home on the Saturday, while the Stableford competition was won by Kay Ford.

As a mark of respect of the passing of our esteemed member Linda Bentley, we cancelled our team event on the 23rd.

On the last Wednesday, we had a team competition called 'String' as we all needed cheering up after the passing of Linda. Everyone had fun and we celebrated Linda's life with pizza and a glass of rose. The Friday girls have bought a star in her name - thank you to Yvonne for organising it. May Linda rest in peace.

Christmas is on its way and the clubhouse is looking very Christmassy. A big thank you to Angela Roberts who kindly organised all the Poinsettia's around the club.
