Monthly Report

December 2015 was a busy month with many Christmas competitions. I would like to thank Ross, Kenny and Roger for running the Turkey Flutter and the Boxing Day event, as well as running the roll ups. I would also like to thank Cristina for running the office, which allowed me to take some time off with the family over Christmas.

New Year's Day Scramble was a very special one this year with a record 160 players. The "Brian Evans New Year Scramble Trophy" was presented to the winning team; David Adamson, Andrew Adamson, Mark Adamson, Constantin Schmidt and Ali Scott with a score of -10.

The 4th Algarvian Invitational will be taking place between the 17th and 23rd January and there is already a field of 103 players confirmed. While our main event in February will be the St Valentine's Trophy, which will be played over two days; one round at Pinheiros Altos and the other round at San Lorenzo.

I am delighted that David Ford has accepted to be the candidate nominated by the committee to be the future Vice-Captain as from the next A.G.M, while Zoe Pirret will be the Lady Vice-Captain. I am sure that both of them will be a great credit to the Golf Committee and I look forward to being able to work with them in developing the golf club over the next few years.

Ladies Section

Cathy Harper

Firstly a Happy New Year to all. It was good to see so many ladies over the Christmas period and enjoy some fun golf with you all. Our Christmas competition on December 16th was a great success with all the ladies entering into the spirit of the competition. We played in festive red or green; the red team, led by myself, won, while Linda Bentley won the prize for the best outfit.

The December medals were won by Cathy Harper in Division One and Lisa Burns in Division Two. While, the Stablefords were won by Hilary Jessup in Division One and Vera Watkins in Division Two.

The Turkey Flutter on December 20th was rained off, but the lunch was enjoyed by all; especially those who won the prizes on a card draw. It is impossible to reschedule when rains stops play in a competition so close to Christmas.

The Boxing Day American Foursomes was great fun, although too early a start for some, but New Year's Day saw 160 players turn out to "Scramble" round the course. Well done to the winners, who had a rookie in their team with Alexandra Scott playing in her first ever competition.
