Captains Update22nd June 2013

After two consecutive days of playing golf in very difficult conditions we congratulate our 2013 Men’s Club Champion, Mike Abbott and our Ladies Club Champion Suzanne McEvoy. In a close competition, Suzanne came from behind after the first day to win from Thelma Pickard with Linda Anthony coming in a close third. In the men’s, Mike led the field over the two days, with Vice Captain Bob Hart second and Brian Matthews third. All results are posted on the web site. Well done to everybody who competed and especially to all of those who won a prize.

Along with this must be a big thank you to Rui Baptista of Baptista Supermercado in Luz who sponsored the day and generously donated the prizes.

I am pleased to announce that Isabel Coelho of Santo Antonio Villas, Golf & Spa has offered to donate two prizes a month on our competition days to the club. These are dinner for two in the Trattoria to the value of €50 and a spa treatment valued at €35. The winners will have their card picked out from those competing on a singles competition day and will have to be present when the draw takes place during the competition prize giving.

On a couple of house keeping matters, please ensure all pitch marks are repaired and that all bunkers are raked after visiting them. Can I also remind you that competition-winning vouchers are only valid for a year and these can be easily spent in the bar!

In the meantime I hope everybody enjoys the Men’s versus Ladies competition and BBQ which takes place on the 5th July. Will it be as close as last year when Glynis Bredo chipped in on the 18th to half the match ????

The Captain
