Captains Update

27th July

I hope you are enjoying your summer wherever you maybe, either back in northern Europe or enjoying your time here in the Algarve. For once temperatures between the two areas do not seem to be much different, but will it last??

The beginning of July here saw a very successful Ladies versus Mens competition and I hope all those who competed and stayed for the great BBQ enjoyed the day. The Men were flattered by a seven games to three victory this year.

Our Interleague Team is presently lying forth in the league after a recent 4 -1 victory against Penina. We have three matches left to play, so hopefully we can move up the table to finish nearer the top. You can follow our progress on the web site.

As we enter into a quiet few weeks at the club I would just like to remind you all, of a few dates which start our hectic autumn schedule. Captains’ Day approaches rapidly and is on 14th September, the competition sheet will be put on the board in the next couple of weeks. However if you are not here before, to put your name on the sheet and choose your meal, do let Carol Newland or myself know via e-mail if you would like to play and what you would like to eat.( ) Menu choices must be made latest 4th September.

The competition is a Singles Stableford, yellow tees for men and tee times start from 9.00am. If e-mailing please give an approximate tee time choice and also the menu you require for the evening meal. The poster detailing the day along with the menu choices are on the web site and will be on the notice board shortly.

Once we have all recovered our breath from Captains Day, 18th September sees the over 70’s competition. This year the competition will be followed by a BBQ and music, the music being kindly sponsored by Brian Newsham.

Of course this event is closely followed by the Autumn Festival which starts on September 20th finishing with the Gala Dinner on Wednesday 25th. I hope you enjoy the festival and play well.

Finally our members’ day this year is on October 4th and there will be a dinner and music in the evening, if the event follows last years example, great fun will be had by all.


Enjoy the summer sunshine and your golf,


The Captain
