Monthly Report

I would like to thank the Club Captain, Knut Pedersen, for his kind words on the massive loss that Linda Bentley is to our Club. She was the spirit of any party we held at the Club and we will miss her dearly. Linda, wherever you are, I am sure the dance floor will be all yours.

On behalf of all the staff at Pinheiros Altos, our most sincere condolences to Alan.

October has been the busiest month we have had for many years on the golf course. On 5th October we had Pink Day, which raised the very good amount of €5,550. Thank you to all the sponsors, Shirley Griffiths for her important input and all the members who supported the event and the charity.

The Wooden Spoon has been handed to the men for the fourth year in a row. I think our Captain Knut was expecting it, as with Mai Markey as the Lady Captain and Zoe as the Lady Vice Captain, he was fighting a very competitive pair who would do anything to win!

The October Stableford was won by Steven Crowdey and the Autumn Rosebowl saw Melody Cotterill winning the trophy.

As we go to press, I have lost a true friend. Linda Bentley has passed away after a short illness. She will be sadly missed by us all at Pinheiros Altos. She is now dancing with the angels in Heaven. Rest in peace Linda, hugs and kisses.

The Ryder Cup weekend at PA was a great success and having a win for Europe made the Sunday a celebration for all on the team. Many thanks to Melaura for all her work and signage throughout the course.

Our first Wednesday was Pink Day, which raised over 5,500€ for the oncology department in Faro. Well done to everyone for your support. Many thanks to the organising committee of Shirley, our Director Christophe and Mr President DM.

The Wooden Spoon was one of the highlights of my captaincy, as it gave me great pleasure to hand over the spoon to Knut. The two Knuts beat Rie and I in our match, thankfully not a dog license (they both dovetailed very well together), but we still had fun. Knut came back down to earth very quickly, as the ladies worked hard to get the right result. Everyone stayed on the terrace supporting the teams coming in and great atmosphere followed in the dining room.
