Dear All,

A brief report from PDR to keep you up to date with events.
We have had some lovely golfing weather, clear blue skies but sometimes a bit breezy and chilly.

Congratulations to Geert Peters, he came for a quick visit, played in the roll up, and made a hole in one! Well done and thank you, we enjoyed celebrating with you!

Vice Captain Vincent organised a great away day. 19th November, 24 of us went to Estoril. Lovely course with very speedy greens which some of us found challenging… Mark Peddar’s team won, which was a nice birthday present for him. Thank you Dulce, we all enjoyed the cake!

Captain/Pro Matches

Vice Captain and my husband thrashed us, and then a week later we just managed to overcome Steve Moore and Peter Reed, both of them great matches and great fun.
Next week we have been challenged by Peter and Pam Clark, tough opponents for sure.

Upcoming Events

  • December 14th – Pairs Trophy
  • December 21st – OM Competition, followed by Christmas snack lunch.
  • December 23rd – Monday Team Golf will be 9 holes, followed by Christmas drinks/snacks and presentation at my house.

Portucale Trophy is held on the 2nd January. Angella Walton has kindly volunteered to coordinate the raffle. All donations welcome, please leave your items at golf reception for her. Thank you so much.

Several members have asked me about the staff Christmas ‘box’. I am happy to collect donations and coordinate distribution to all golf staff. This will include reception, rangers and green keepers. Bar staff will have their normal tip bowl on the bar.

Best wishes, looking forward to seeing you all soon,
Caroline Simpson
