From the Director of Golf
August as expected was very calm after the storm, it gave us time to look back on the Sunshine Classic Members Gala Week which was a great success and I take this opportunity to thank all the players who took part and made it into such an enjoyable
week for all.
On 4th August, we had our annual Junior Open with 27 juniors taking part in a great day organized by our Pro Peter Ashdown and sponsored by Mr. Malcolm Helder, also with the help of some past Captains & members on the day. The Champion was Ricardo Costa and congratulations to him on what I am sure will be the first of many more trophies.

The festive season was full of celebration both on and off the course! The many competitions, hole-in-ones and improvements in course conditions ensured a month of exciting golf... while turkey suppers and the São Lourenço choir provided an enchanting Christmas atmosphere. December is also a time of giving, and a huge well done goes to Jenny Harrison for her hard work towards the ACCA foundation.
With beautiful weather and 155 players, the New Year's Day Scramble was the perfect way to start 2015 and we look forward to a busy month ahead, including hosting the European Seniors Tour.

The month of February is generally one of the quieter months in our Club's active diary... it's the time of year when many of our resident members head off on holidays to warmer climes and more settled weather, in order to recharge their batteries (figuratively speaking) for the year ahead.
Recently, however, we've introduced a couple of events for February which have certainly sparked interest with the membership and have been well supported.
The first - and now in its second year - is the reciprocal social with Quinta do Lago. Which, despite the weather intervention, is going from strength to strength, and I must thank Iain Callaghan of PA and Mark Foot of QdL for all their additional coordination on this occasion...
Discover what else has been happening, inside.

As we look forward to what is to come at the club during 2014, it is with considerable disappointment that we inform our members of Mr.Walter Dickson's recent decision to step down from his role as Club President.
Walter was the first official Captain of the Club in 1999, which created the stepping stone to the Club we have today. He became President of Pinheiros Altos Golf Club in 2000 until 2003 and then stood for a second term as President of the Club in 2007 until now.
For a decade and more his steady hand and guidance have been invaluable.

December, as you might imagine, was awash with festive cheer, Christmas parties and New Year fun...
However, along with an array of great golf and good times, Pinheiros Altos also looked to those less fortunate and pushed ahead with some much needed charity work in the community.
There was also a fantastic tribute to the former Director of Golf Brian Evans, who was honoured with a 'special' - and new - production of 'The Life of Brian' which went down a storm.

October - what a month! With so many events taking place we hardly knew where to start with this newsletter.

This year, the Ladies team proved victorious, playing some wonderful golf that eventually led to the Gents being presented with the spoon.
