Overseas Golfing Challenges for Pinheiros Altos Members

While the Algarve is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in which to play golf, there came a time this summer when cooler climes were craved. For this reason, 46 of our members ventured overseas to the staggering Loch Lomond Golf Club with its 7,100 yard parkland and Highland backdrop. The members were welcomed with a 'wee dram' which set the tone for a long weekend of Scottish hospitality.

Before long it was time to get down to business with the Pinheiros Altos Loch Lomond Challenge. This was the first competition of its kind for several years so some of the members took part in a social game initially in order to familiarise themselves with the course. The main event was an individual Stableford with a specially designed and engraved plate the prize. Susan Russell was victorious with a wonderful 37 points. Susan was the only player to break par, making her a truly deserved winner.

The month was very British indeed with the annual Gents' challenge against the Cotswold Hills Golf Club. The event has been running for eight years now, and over that time many a great friendship has been forged. A 3-3 draw was the order of the day and the club were kind enough to host a light lunch and presentation ceremony afterwards. Our Lady Captain Rie Cherubini hosted an alternative social for the women, and it was thoroughly enjoyed.

Changes and Refurbishments Afoot at Pinheiros Altos

Things are looking good back at home too, with the academy area anticipating an upgrade. The teaching bays will be updated, the tees improved and the wooden hut transformed into a treatment room. The 7th Green on Olives will also be rebuilt in the coming months, and it is expected that things will be finished in time for the New Year. The offices have also undergone some changes, and the Golf Club office and the Director of Golf's office are now located next to the Golf shop.
