Monthly Report

October saw the Wooden Spoon being handed to the men for the second year in a row followed by Lisa burns winning the Autumn Medal Rosebowl with a fantastic score of 71 - well done and congratulations on your new handicap!

It was the busiest month we have experienced for many years on the golf course, which saw pace of play effected when the number of players exceeded 300. Though the course's conditions have suffered a lot over the last year, through the hard work of maintenance staff there have been clear signs of improvement.

The Social Golf tournament celebrated 10 years, which as always was very well supported and I would like to say thank you to all the members involved in its organization.

I would also like to thank Jorge and his team for running the restaurant over the past few years. From the 1st of November, the catering of the main Clubhouse is being run by Lusotel and I am glad that Jorge and almost all the team are staying on.

Future events that have now been confirmed include the 3rd Algarvian Invitational for Seniors and a two day St Valentine tournament. Keep an eye open for the Christmas board in the Clubhouse so that you can sign up for the many tournaments during the festive season, while our New Year's Eve party is not to be missed!

Ladies Section

Adrienne Buth

I am very proud that despite heavy rain, the ladies have won again and the men retained the Wooden Spoon. The competition was first introduced by Therese van Doorn and Barbara Fletcher in 1998, with the ladies winning in 2001, 2010, 2013 and now 2014!

In the medal competition for the eclectic prizes on the 8th of October, Helen Mills won first prize with a nett score of 32 (back nine) followed in second place by Susan Russell, who then went onto win first prize on the qualifying Stableford on the 22nd of October. We also played two friendly matches in October, the first against the ladies from Vila Sol and the second versus Carvoeiro, which we won 3/2.

We also had a Waltz the 15th of October, followed by singles Matchplay on the last Wednesday of October, during which most ladies had an interesting yet tough match.

Almost 40 attended the annual dinner, photographs of which captured both the great atmosphere and how Jorge and his staff excelled in creating a beautiful, tasty dinner. The highlight was the presentation of the eclectic prizes - thank you to Cathy Harper and Zoe Pirret!
