Loose Cannons Northern Tour 23-25 March 2010 – Results

Clearwater Sanctuary Golf Course
The Loose Cannons Northern Tour took place over 3 days from 23rd March till 25th March centred in Ipoh. The first day was a normal Cannons game and this was played on the wonderful Clearwater Sanctuary golf course south of Ipoh town.

Meru Valley Golf Course
A 2 day competition was then held at Meru Valley Golf Course with the first day additionally having a team game arranged. This golf course is probably one of the most scenic courses in Malaysia but conditions were extremely hot and humid on both days with many players suffering because of this.
The Valley Course
Day 1 winning team was Stuart Taylor/Barry Cousins/Hans Berger/Benhard Rohman with a total of 120 Stableford points. The individual winner of the day was Barry Cousins with a total of 36 points (the only one to play to his handicap)

Many thanks should go to Andrew Robinson who arranged the 2-day competition at Meru Valley as well as the hotel and dining arrangements. Thanks also to Raymond Keys for arranging the first day at Clearwater Sanctuary. A great event and now we have to look forward to the Loose Cannons Southern Tour – watch this space!
