Pinheiros Altos Members Newsletter – August 2013

August 9th, 2013

Farewell from Director of Golf - Brian Evans

The 31st of July 2013 was my final day as Director of Golf at Pinheiros Altos... and this will be my final report for the newsletter - my 112th since its introduction in May 2004 by the then Captain, Mr. Bill Copestake.

I am stepping down as Director of Golf happy in the knowledge that Christophe Rindlisbacher, my right hand man for many years, will take over from me. He has become a great friend of mine and has been a pleasure to work with... and I know that he is ready to take Pinheiros Altos forward. I will still be around though and will now be overseeing the golf course's development - something that has always been my passion.

The Best Members Club in Portugal

I believe that Pinheiros Altos is the best members club in Portugal and I am sure it will go from strength to strength under the new structure. I know that Christophe, Cristina, Sesinando and all the golf staff will continue to do everything they can to provide the members with the high standard that they expect and deserve.

Pinheiros Altos still has tremendous potential and I know that many exciting things will be taking place over the coming months... including the strengthening of the relationship between Pinheiros Altos and San Lorenzo, which will have a great benefit for all members.

It was great to round off my time at Pinheiros Altos with an excellent Sunshine Classic Gala Week. It included one of the very best Charity Shootouts, fancy dress performances, two superb meals thanks to Chef Nuno, and some stunning golf from the winners Daniel Waters and Mark Altmann.

I must thank the Pinheiros Altos members for their encouragement, support and friendship. Of course, it would not be a golf club if everyone was a friend of the Director of Golf; but I would like to think I have a few!

It only remains for me to wish you all good health and good golfing, and to wish Christophe and his team the very best for the future development of Pinheiros Altos.
