Paul Pinard, a member at Golf de Barthe for many years, sadly lost his life very suddenly last year. Paul and his wife Brigitte have been a great help to us since we arrived in September 2018. Brigitte endlessly helping correct my French writing skills and Paul was very engaged with the Ecole de Golf alongside Nico the Pro, helping with the kids’ competitions etc. Paul was also Nico’s first pupil at Golf de Barthe.
Member, Stephane Demier suggested some time ago for us to do a competition which attracted beginners and higher handicap members to play alongside our stronger players hence the format for the Paul Pinard Competition which we thought was a fitting way to remember Paul especially as throughout his life he supported the development of young players across multiple sports.
