Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter - March 2016

Introduction from the Captain

by Mr Stewart Harper

This is my last report as your Captain and I am sure you will warmly welcome your new Captain, Knut Pedersen, who takes over at the AGM on 24th March.

I hope members will file any questions relating to the club, well in time for the AGM and for Christophe to prepare his replies. I can confirm that at my invitation Ruben Paula the new COO of JJW Portugal has agreed to make a statement at the AGM and to answer questions relating to the future plans for the club's development. This is, I believe, a first for JJW and I hope bodes well.

As previously reported, Ruben is highly qualified and experienced in managing both hotels and resorts. I am optimistic that real changes may be in our sight with his backing.

Members will see that the work to the new extension in the dining area has commenced and the contractors have promised to complete their work before the AGM. This reflects well on the new regime as I made it clear that in my year I wanted to see some evidence of new investment - a sentiment that I am sure
Christophe shares!

The course still needs to improve, to present itself in a better light. I can confirm the company has appointed a gardener to keep the area around the club house and access to paths in better condition. I hope we will see the improvements very quickly.
