Small group of 7 managed the 45 minute journey to Beringin to-day. (The distance was a bit daunting for some of our elderly members)
Everyone was on time enabling us to get registered and saddled up by 07.35 am. The early Start put us 1st on the course and finished by 11.15am.
The cost for 7 players was RM 360 (RM 51.42 each) RM 50 was collected from everyone. As many wanted to get off after the game we had a quick drink and award ceremony at the club and was on our way home by 12 .30pm.
No carry over RM!
The course as usual was in great condition apart from the greens being still wet from the overnight dew.
Stable-ford scores on the day were close together. Just one score stood out from the rest and that was from Klaus who scored a 93 for 39 points. (Bonus points were not required.)
2nd place went to Ray Funnell with his 100 for 35 points (off a 27 h/cap)
Erol gave Klaus a run for his money taking the 1st 9 with 21 points slot but then Erols game fell apart after picking up his ball after 6 shots on the par 4 10th thinking the hole was a par 3. The hole was a 6 index which would have given Erol 1 point for his 18” 7th shot if taken.!
1st Klaus Kretzschmar 93 / 39 Cut 4 to 20
2nd Ray Funnell 100 / 35 Cut 1 to 26
3rd Jeff Pearce 96 / 35 + 1 to 23
4th Erol Akinci 98 / 34 + 1 to 25
5th Peter Edgworth 96 / 34 + 1 to 23
6th Simon Compton 92 / 32 + 1 to 17
7th Tony Morris 93 / 30 + 1 to 16
Loose Cannons monthly “Trophy game” will be played at the:
Please be there by 07. 30am
As we all know, Templer Park is a difficult track and the 16 golfers (I use the term Golfer in it’s broadest sense) who ……I was going to say ‘graced’ but that would be a gross misrepresentation of the facts…..let’s say ‘took part’, proved again how relatively easy most of the courses we play are. Only 5 of us broke 100 and only one of us played to his handicap. Well done that man. Barry for example managed to “blob” 13 holes; 9 on the trot! That must be a record of sorts.
Templer was in poor condition; a sad reflection on the magnificent golf course that it once was. They are trying to rejuvenate the place but it’s a loosing battle I’m afraid. What a pity given the outstanding piece of real estate it occupies and the stunning back drop and only 30 mins drive from down town KL. Clearly the club facilities are underused and underfunded and one wonders how long this place will survive. Nevertheless, we will be back if only to bring ourselves back to reality….golf wise!
The winner was Glen Wombwell with 37 points and the runner-up Paul Hobbs making a rare appearance and coming in with 32 points OCB. Glen is cut 4 strokes and Paul 1 stroke. The lowest gross was 86 by Geoff Parslow and the most golf was played by Barry Cousins with 124.
Mike Smith will be away for the next 4 games so Andrew Robinson will be “deputy dog” (thank you Andrew) and will advise you of next weeks venue.
