Monthly Report

Firstly, I would like to wish Rui Tomé well - he has been working with us in our catering department for over 15 years, but is no longer with the company. I would like to thank him for all his input over the years.

I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome the new manager, Renato Vairinhos, who will be starting on the 15th of October 2016, and wish him well with his new challenge.

I'd like to congratulate the Captain on winning the Hillbillies Vs Sanddancers Trophy for the Hillbillies! While our ACCA Pro-Am raised over €10,000 for a very worthy cause on the 15th of September. Thanks to everyone who participated for their support - the winners of the day were our home pro Kenny Fairbairn and former PA pro Eddie Charnock. They both achieved a score of 71… and Kenny and his team also went on to win the team event!

We hosted our President's Day and the Senior Championship on the 18th of September, which was well supported with 80 players. It was a very enjoyable day that was followed by a lunch in the clubhouse, which was largely sponsored by the President Mr. David Markey. Rosie Agnew won the President's Prize and became the new Pinheiros Altos Senior Champion 2016. Congratulations Rosie!

September's fun started with the Hillbillies Vs Sanddancers ... many congratulations to Knut and his team on a great win. While our Medal on the 7th of September was won by 1st Chie Crowdey and 2nd Wendy Evans ...both having a 73 nett.

We had the Matchplay Championships on the weekend of the 9th, and Sue Georges beat Hilary Jessup in the final on Sunday. We played 666 on the 14th of September; teams of four with two to score on the first six, then three on the next and the final six all to score. It made it challenging, but everyone enjoyed the fun day.

A wonderful score at the monthly Stableford from Barbara Fletcher made her the outright winner of the Casa Da Quinta voucher. However, September was also the month for friendlies and we had four to play! Thank you to everyone who played our home and away games.

We had our charity day on the 27th and raised over 1,000 euro. Card making followed by afternoon tea was a great success. The money raised is going directly towards school books for children in the local area. Many thanks to Amanda, her sister Alison and everyone who sponsored, baked, served and helped make the day such a success.
