Monthly Report

May started with our usual trip to the K-Club, and despite the rain, we all had a great time thanks to our host and President, David Markey. Well done to the Immediate Past Captain David Pirret, who won the Seve Trophy.

The Ben Hogan Trophy was played at Quinta do Lago this year and won by the home club 24 - 15. Mixed Pairs Matchplay was popular with 20 teams taking part and was won by our Club Captain and Lady. The May Medal was won by Barbara Kyne and the May Stableford was won by Jenny Harrison, while Vitor Madureiro won a trip to the Azores during the first Portuguese Senior Association South Region Tournament.

Some of you may have noticed that we finally have a Pinheiros Altos Clock, courtesy of Blevins Franks and our Club Captain Stewart Harper... so there'll be no more excuses for turning up late on the tee!

I look forward to seeing many of you at Captain's Day on the 13th of June, as well as on the 27th of June, for the Hillbillies Vs Sanddancers challenge.

The last month has flown by and winners were as follows. The division one winner of the Medal was Helen Mills with a nett 72. Second division was won by Molly Wainwright with a nett 77. Melaura Parker won the first division Stableford with 37 points and Linda Bentley won division two with 34 points, well done girls.

We welcomed 54 players from many clubs in the Algarve for our Invitation Day and the winners were Diana Collins from Pinheiros and Gaby Roethig from Vila Sol. 800 euros was raised for charity and I would like to thank everyone who played and showed their support, especially Past Captain Adrienne Buth for organising the day so successfully.

On May the 15th, 11 Past Lady Captains played in the annual Past Captains Day, which Therese Van Doorn won. While, Stewart and I were delighted to win the Mixed Matchplay knockout. Though we have enjoyed our Ladies Friendly Matches, they're not going as well as we would like as we lost both matches this May.

I look forward to seeing many of you at Linda Bentley's Ascot Day on June the 18th.
