CAPTAINS BLOG FOR JANUARY

Dear Members

 

Just a few things that I would like to mention. Firstly, I would like to thank you all for supporting the Captains changeover. It was a great evening, not only for me but also great to see Rod end his captaincy on a high, a job well done, what a great Captain. Also, it was a nice welcome for Frank, our new Vice-Captain. Although, I felt the pain the following morning after he got his guitar out and ordered another round of drinks, or two…!

 

Some good news, I have been talking to Rui our golf manager, who has been very supportive, and together hopefully we have arranged an agreement on CNIG cards (similar to a county card in the U.K) It will be one more advantage to our membership and also save us all a few euros on green fees at other clubs.

 

Algarve interclub league is going to be a big part of my year, I would love to bring the trophy back to the club and obviously a lucrative finals day for Santo Antonio. The matches are posted on the web site and I have tried to book them all around our main golf club events so that we have plenty of players available and we can pick an in form side. Finals day this year will be held at Levante, who won the league last year. Unfortunately each club can only take 6 players so, I will arrange one of our singles competitions to be a finals day qualifier. Wether you have played once for the team or every game, the top 5 scores of all team members will represent the club on finals day.

 

Best wishes
