Directions to Kinrara Golf Club:
Just 9 golfers turned up – the course was quiet, in good condition and the weather most clement. The first 2 flights finished in rapid time, with the 3rd coming in 55 minutes later…..for no obvious reason.
Winner was Erol with a gross 89 and 40 points, cut 4. This could have been much better as Erol shot 39 for the first 9 before the wheels came off. Second was Tom Holmes with a gross 99 and 39 points, cut 1. Lowest gross was Erol and Andrew, both with 89, and the most golf was enjoyed by Bernhard with 103. Full details are as follows:
Erol Akinci – 89/40
Tom Holmes – 99/39
Ray Funnell – 93/36
Sigi – 98/33
Andrew Robinson – 89/32
Tony Morris – 95/32
Hans Berger – 93/31
Rein Li Tan – 101/30
Bernhard Romahn – 103/28
There was some drama before the start of the game – yours truly, having collected the money at reception, then proceeded to lose it! It slipped down the back of the chair and was spotted by eagle-eyed Morris! And then Ziggy was seen racing back up to reception in a buggy as he had left his car keys on the reception desk. And worse was to come, Rein Li in the second flight making his way to the first tee box realised his clubs were still in his car! Former captains of industry and all..
Lunch provided more entertainment. Rein Li decided he needed some soft-boiled eggs and toast – and he ordered 6! As he was cutting off the crusts of his toast, he was asked if he had had a heavy one the night before – ‘No it was a quiet night, just a few beers and half a bottle of whisky’! And Bernhard has clearly acquired a taste for english kids food, ie egg + chips – and ordered a mountain of chips with 4 fried eggs on top! And washed it down with a combination of black coffee and fresh water melon juice…
Enough of this drivel….and best wishes to Mike for a speedy recovery after the horrendous car accident he was involved in over the weekend in Kijal.

Next Tuesday 8th June 2010 we will play Staffield at the request of our visiting member Joe, this being his last game this visit. Tee off 08:00. Be there by 07:30 LATEST.
After the game we will retire immediately to Mantin for the M&M.
Only 10 Cannons turned out Tuesday at a rather quiet Tasik Puteri. We played the 2nd & 3rd nines (in reverse order) which were in very good order and most found it a stiff test. I don’t know what’s going on at TP but they are making some subtle changes to the course with the result that it’s no longer the benine track it once was. They have nice new buggies and a lot of new maintenance equipment and the rough is being thickened and lengthened to punish any wayward drives. With fairly quick greens and some devilish pin positions it was a real challenge.
The winner with 38 points was Hans Berger; cut 4 strokes and the runner-up Peter jackson with 37 points; cut 1 stroke. The lowest gross was Joe Zorich with 88 and the most golf was played by Tom Holmes.
After the game we retired to the Equatorial where the usual excellent makan was enjoyed. There was however one absentee; Bernard Rohmahn. Bernard has a directional problem as we all know but this takes the biscuit. Having asked to follow Andrew because he wasn’t sure of the directions (actually he has been to the Equatorial before) he did so until the penultimate set of lights at which point Andrew indicated right and turned into the Petronas station to avoid the trafffic tail back ahead but Bernard didn’t follow and was never seen again. Where did you go Bernard? So that we can contact you and “talk you down” in the future please let us know your mobile # as we missed your company and you missed a good lunch.
