Monthly Report

The Algarvian Invitational Senior Tournament was organized as a joint venture with Quinta do Lago, and played over four very competitive rounds of golf this January. Andrew Oldcorn beat the other 80 players to win €7,000, followed closely by José Romero. Many thanks go to joint sponsors John Waters and Denis O'Brian, as well as all staff involved in organizing the tournament. A special thanks also goes out to the green staff, who, with the help of the greens committee, have made a tremendous effort to recover the golf course.

Winter Medal was won by Tim Russell with a 74, while the January Stableford was won by our Lady Captain Adrienne Buth with a score of 41 points. I am delighted that Knut Pedersen has accepted to be the candidate nominated by the committee to be the future Vice-Captain as from the next AGM, while Mai Markey will be the Lady Vice-Captain.

In February, our main event is of course the St Valentine's Trophy and I look forward to seeing many of you signing up for this event. I wish you all a great start to the Golf Season!

Adrienne Buth

January was a relatively quite month. Cathy Harper took care of the Medal on Wednesday the 7th of January and Sue Georges had a very good result of 72 points nett. Lisa Burns earned her Medal Glass with her game and diplomacy with playing partners.

On the 14th of January, there were 26 players and Hilary Jessup took her job as floater very seriously, with both her teams ending on 69 points, achieving first and second places! Thérèse van Doorn and Pat Murrish won the qualifying Stableford on the 21st of January in the first and second division.

The 28th of January saw the match between the teams of the Lady Vice-Captain versus the Lady Captain's team, and Cathy Harper's team won with 4 ½ vs ½! Don't forget to sign up for the Ladies Foursomes on Wednesday the 11th of February and of course, the Club's St Valentine's Tournament.
