CAPTAINS UPDATE NOVEMBER 2012

CAPTAINS UPDATE 9th NOVEMBER.

Good day to all our Members and Visitors, welcome to the Captains Update.

October was a whirlwind month that flew by so quickly. It started with the Interleague team beating this years division champions Alto at home, and finishing the year in a respectable 5th place in the table. Our away form let us down this year, so it was some consolation to end the year undefeated at home.

It was a month to congratulate Cameron Bell from Floresta Park Golf Club, who won the Junior Drive Sul Competition, with a fabulous score of 72. He was 12 shots clear of the field, with Joana Mota from Vilamoura in second place on 84, and Antonio Bentes also from Vilamoura with 85 in third. WELL DONE CAMERON.

We suffered from a little too much rain in the month, and we had three games either cancelled or abandoned, but on a positive note we managed to play 8 competitive competitions, so all was not lost. Just to note here that David Haddon has been at it again, sinking his second hole in one within a month. Just like a London bus, you wait for ages and along come two. In David’s case 28 years.

I am pleased to report that the updated competition boards are nearly complete, and I expect to see them in place by the end of this month .The competition entry sheet will soon be up for the Captains v Vice Captains day, and there will be a Fish, Chips & peas dish of the day to follow, priced at10 Euros. Peter and I would love to see you all taking part if you are able.

The Christmas Hamper competition will also be on the board soon, and will be played on Sunday 2nd December. The fabulous BRANDED will be providing the entertainment, and anyone who was at their last performance will know we are in for a treat.

The end of October brought the Captains away days at San Lorenzo. I hope everyone enjoyed the course and the time spent amongst your friends from PDF. It was for me, a sheer pleasure to see so many people enjoying the event and encompassing each others company in such fine and truly PDF way. Well done to all the winners in October, and well done everyone who took part in what was a rainy month here in the Western Algarve but still PARADISE.
