    With Christmas on the horizon, the golf schedule is beginning to slow down for the festive season, but there is still a lot to discuss in this issue. Stuart and Leigh Anderson, Rie Cherubini and Melaura Parker all enjoyed success in the month's main competitions, while our latest pro-am has raised €3400 for the ACCA.

    We'd also like to draw your attention to the Christmas board in the clubhouse, which details the many activities taking place this festive season. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all members.

    We celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Social Golf this month and are also happy to report a noticeable improvement in conditions on the course thanks to a great deal of hard work and support. The men retained the Wooden Spoon following a win by the ladies despite the weather, while the Interclub team have been promoted to the 1st Division of the Algarve league. We'd also like to congratulate Lisa Burns for her win in the Autumn Rosebowl Medal.

    Alongside the latest news and event details, you can find further information about enjoying a round of golf with Gordon J Brand, as well as the many tournaments lined up for the festive season and beyond.

    Last month was a busy one, with many exciting events taking place. There was the September Match Play Championship, the Ladies Invitation Day and our own mini Ryder Cup. The annual Pink Day also took place, and we raised a grand total of over €4500 for charity.

    Next month is the dreaded Wooden Spoon, where the men will be hoping they can hand the spoon back to the ladies.

  • Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter - April 201407 April 2014

    As Captaincies come to an end... and the time has come for others to step into the breach, it's an exciting month at Pinheiros Altos. Next month will see some new writers taking up their pens... and in this month's edition we have some moving and excellent sign-offs from Graeme Thomson and Rie Cherubini.

  • Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter - March 201410 March 2014

    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.

  • Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter - February 201411 February 2014

    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.

  • Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter - January 201410 January 2014

    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.

  • Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter - December 201311 December 2013

    November has been kind to us here at Pinheiros and we have experienced some lovely warm weather. This proved the perfect backdrop to a number of exciting competitions and tournaments, and as always, we saw some impressive golf from all.

    The Foursomes Championships, the St. Andrew's Day Challenge and a social with Quinta do Lago left us in high spirits for the festive celebrations to come.

  • Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter - November 201312 November 2013

    October - what a month! With so many events taking place we hardly knew where to start with this newsletter. Of course, there was one that caught everyone's attention during this very busy period and that was the Wooden Spoon. This year, the Ladies team proved victorious, playing some wonderful golf that eventually led to the Gents being presented with the spoon.

  • Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter - October 201310 October 2013

    Competitive play has been at the forefront of activity at Pinheiros Altos this month. We saw the much anticipated Individual Matchplay Championships take place with an overwhelmingly large number of participants. The result was an exciting tournament with an impressive quality of golf demonstrated by all.

    There are a number of exciting events coming up, and plenty of chances for the Membership to socialise and have fun. There will be a Texas Scramble and a competition with Quinta do Lago in the coming weeks...
