Monthly Report

April was a very busy month, starting with our usual Easter Sunday Scramble and Easter Sunday BBQ. The big winners of the day were Tony Hickey, Dan Henderson, Paul, Melody and Jamie Cotterill with a 3,5 shot lead.

The following week saw the Club Stroke-Play Championship take place and congratulations go to Dan Henderson with gross scores of 76 and 78 and Sally Evans with scores of 83 and 87. The APPA AGM, dinner and golf tournament all took place on the 7th of April and the latter was won by Bert Keuppens with 37 points. While the St George's Day Stableford was won by Adrienne Buth and Tony Hickey.

Jorge Afonso from catering has left Pinheiros Altos and I would like to thank him for all of his hard work and dedication over the last few years in running the club house. Rui Tomé will now be the manager for catering at Pinheiros Altos and I wish him great success in his new role.

May and June are also set to be very busy on the golf course, with the mixed pairs Match-Play Championship for the Russell Salver between the 21st and 24th of May, the first tournament of the Portuguese Senior Golf Association South Region held at Pinheiros Altos on the 28th of May and Captains Day on the 13th of June 2015.

I wish all members good golfing at Pinheiros Altos!

Ladies Section

Cathy Harper

Though our second competition was rained off after 9 holes and the following week rain stopped play completely, the weather improved towards the end of the month. We played a qualifying Stableford, which was won by Margo Fletcher in the first division and Linda Dixon in the second division. The May Medal was won by Helen Mills in the first division and by Molly Wainwright in the second division.

We drew our first ladies friendly match against Vila Sol Away and had a very enjoyable day. We also enjoyed our games against Quinta do Lago in the Ben Hogan competition, though the result was not what we had hoped for!

It was lovely to have Maried Koojmans and Diane Golding back with us and to welcome three new lady members into our midst; Kelly Browse, Sally Wingrove and Evelyn Amy. Unfortunately the lady from Vila Sol who kindly took our photograph cut our heads off, so we need to take a new team photo at our next match!

Linda Bentley is hosting an Ascot Ladies Day on June the 18th in order to raise money for the children's homes in Alvor and in Olhão. We are also looking forward to our Ladies Invitation Day on May the 27th and we will welcome many ladies from other local clubs to play with us.

I look forward to seeing many of you this May and June, and wish you good golfing in the meantime.
