Warm Weather For Tournaments and Competitions This Autumn at Pinheiros Altos

December 11th, 2013

A Beautiful Autumn For Golf Competitions at Pinheiros Altos

The Foursomes Championship was won by our very own Club Captain, Mr. Graeme Thomson, and his wife, Fiona. They ultimately finished one point ahead of Philip and Nancy Schofield, so it was a very close match indeed. This was followed by our social with Quinta do Lago on the 24th of November. This have become a very popular event, and the members over at Quinta were all very keen to compliment our club and course while they were here.

St. Andrew's Day Challenge

The much-anticipated St. Andrew's Day event also took place in November, and what an event it was! This challenge saw the Celts pitted against a team of English and "Rest of the World" players. Overall, we had 80 golfers, and even more attended in the evening. It was a glorious, sunny day that was made even more enjoyable by the 'Lone Piper' who was playing his bagpipes around the course. The celebrations afterwards were enjoyed by all, and the tartan theme was whole-heartedly embraced by everyone, including Jorge and his team.

Christmas and New Year and Pinheiros Altos

Now everyone is looking forward to Christmas and New Year and all of the events we have planned. Of course, we are very excited about the New Year's Eve party, which will have a black and pink tie theme and will include a dinner and live music, but this isn't the only thing going on. There will also be a New Year's Day Scramble, during which we hope to unveil the brand new Green on the 7th Olives.

Make sure to check the boards by the Golf Office to sign up for these events and more. That will be all from us until next year, so from all of us here at Pinheiros Altos - have a very Merry Christmas.

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.
