Monthly Report

September saw the usual Match Play Championship and congratulations go to David Light and Sue Georges.

On the 6th of September, we had President's Day and Senior Championship, which were the best supported events to-date with 80 players. It was a very enjoyable day followed by a lunch in the Clubhouse. Sergey Naumov was the big champion on the day by winning the President's Prize while Kelvin White is the new Pinheiros Altos Senior Champion 2015. Congratulations to both of them!

Both the Monthly Stableford and the September Medal were won by Zoe Pirret.

Autumn Medal Rosebowl and the highly anticipated Wooden Spoon are coming up; I wish all of you a very good October on the golf course!

For me, September was going to be mainly about my Captains Day. We had seen no rain for five months but when the day dawned, I was awoken to grey skies and a very serious possibility of showers. However well you plan something, you can never rely on the weather, as I found out!

My disappointment was overcome by the attitude of all the ladies, none of whom cancelled and were all cheerful in spite of the soaking, which they got at around 10am. Thanks to my husband Stewart and Iain Cater who were on-hand to offer Bucks Fizz and Pastéis de Nata.

I was surprised by the scores on such a dismal day. The overall winner being Sue Georges with 39 points, well done Sue.

In Division 1, Denise Reed was first with 37 points and Hilary Jessup second with 36, Melody Cotterill took first prize in Division 2 and Pat Murrish second prize. The Nearest the Pin prizes were won by Mai Markey and Marian Hill.

The August medal was won by Therese van Doorn in Division 1 and by Josie Waddinton in Division 2.
