Monthly Report

December was a busy month with many Christmas competitions. Thank you to Ross, Kenny and Roger for running the the roll ups, the Turkey Flutter, which was won by Kathy Grimm, and the Boxing Day, won by Tim Moores and Rainer Grimm. Florida Golf sponsored the Eclectic competition, which was won by Declan Quilligan and Nancy Schofield, while Hamish Rumball and Denise Reed were the Nett winners of the competition. The New Year's Day Scramble was very special this year with 155 players on the day and the "Brian Evans New Year Scramble Trophy" was presented to the winning team: Kelvin and Yvonne White, Chris Norman, Yarida Kapinpong and Shirley Griffiths.

Congratulations go out to Jenny Harrison for her charity work, as well as to the Greens Committee, Sesinando and the maintenance staff, who are starting to see success with the condition of the greens.

January is set to be a busy month, including the 3rd Algarvian Invitational, which will be taking place from the 15th until the 18th of January 2015. I, together with all the staff, would like to wish all the members of Pinheiros Altos and their families a very Happy New Year!

As well as Christmas and New Year celebrations, congratulations also went out to both Thérèse van Doorn and Vice Lady Captain Cathy Harper for their hole-in-ones respectively! Well done again to Cathy Harper and also to Shirley Lamb who won the Medal Glasses on Wednesday the 3rd of December!

On the 10th of December we played "Hot Potato". During prize giving, it was brought to our attention that there were various interpretations of the rules and after listening to all the comments, we decided to go with the scores that were on the cards. I have promised myself to better check that rules are really clear.

Seasonal fun was had on the 17th of December with a Stableford competition. First prizes were won by Sally Ward and Pat Murrish and I would like to thank Sue Georges for the delicious minced pies, and Janet Leffler who organized the catering and prepared the lovely prizes.

A Happy New Year to all - I hope that the good scores we have had lately will continue!
