Monthly Report

As expected, August was very calm, and gave us time to reflect on the Sunshine Classic Members Gala Week, which was a great success. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the players who took part and made it such an enjoyable week for all, with one of the biggest entries for 10 years.

On 2th August, we had our annual Junior Open with 25 juniors taking part in a great day organized by our Pro Peter Ashdown. The event was sponsored by Mr. Malcolm Helder, and there was also assistance from past Captains and members on the day. The Champion was Alexandre Castelo - congratulations to him!

Autumn will be busier as the golf season is now underway - a particularly important event will be Pink Day on 5th October. It will be open as it was such a success last year and a great cause to support. We are hoping to raise over €5,000 to exceed last year's achievements.

August is always a quiet month at Pinheiros Altos, as the temperatures go up and families come to visit. We started it with a Medal round on 3rd August - many congratulations to the winners Denise Reed and Wendy Evans! Meanwhile, our monthly Stableford was won by Melody Cotterill, who was awarded the Casa da Quinta voucher.

On the following Wednesday, I decided to add a fun team competition - Portuguese Caddy. We had teams of four with two to count and we all adjourned to the terrace for nibbles and drinks. The ladies present all raised their glass in fond memory of Paul Dixon... a fun loving man, who will be sadly missed by us all at PA. Our thoughts are with Linda and family at this time.

The highlight of August was our Away Day at Palmares on the last Wednesday of the month, which was a great success. The course is well worth a visit and scoring was high. Luncheon on the beach followed and a good day was had by all!
