October 10th, 2013

A Month of Competition at Pinheiros Altos

It has been a busy and competitive month at Pinheiros Altos with plenty of matches taking place. The Individual Matchplay Championships had an extraordinarily large number of entrants, meaning that we implemented a medal round for both the Ladies and the Gents. Wendy Collins and Declan Quillan were victorious, and we all extend hearty congratulations to them. Then there was the Ladies' Invitation Day, which took place on the 4th with an impressive 50 participants. Conditions were tough, meaning that Ladies' Captain Rie Cherubini was particularly happy to announce Adrienne Buth and Natalie Lisboa as deserved winners.

Charity Events at Pinheiros

In mid-September Pinheiros Altos hosted the annual International Ronald Mcdonald Charity event which saw a wonderful 320 people taking part. Thanks to the organisers and those who took part, we raised over €250,000 for the charity. In other charity news - we were very pleased to hear that José Gabriel, a swimmer from the Loulé Disabled Swimming Team, has won a number of European titles for breaststoke.

Social Golf and Events

Molly Wainwright, head of Social Golf, is keen to remind all of some exciting events coming up. We will hold a Texas Scramble on the 20th October, and a joint competition with Quinta do Lago on the 24th November. All Members are very much encouraged and welcome to join in which these activities. This also an opportunity to remind you all that on St. Andrew's Day, The Celts will be challenging the English along with the rest of the world to a match in commemoration of the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn. Golf will be followed by dinner and entertainment from Ceilidhdonia, a well-known Scottish ceilidh band.

Finally, the Green on 7th on Olives is now undergoing re-design. You may have noticed that we have established a temporary replacement for it. We are anticipating that the re-opening of the Green will take place on the 1st January 2014.
