Templer Park has to be one of the best course layouts in the country with a backdrop that is unsurpassed. The only blemish as I have said many times being the hideous house at the base of the Tigers Tooth. With some money spent here this could and should be up there with the best hosting the Malaysian Open again. Bright sun with almost no breeze greeted the 16 Cannons comprising 14 regulars and 2 new faces; Charlie & Bruce. Welcome to Cannons.
The course was in good shape but recent heavy rain had left several very soft areas resulting in a few plugged balls. The greens were a bit bumpy having been recently hollow tined but quite fast. Templer is always a challenge and so it proved with nobody playing to their handicap.
The winner with 32 points was Ray Funnell with Vincent Vijayan R/U OCB with 31 points. The best gross was 91 from Andrew Robinson and the most golf was played by new boy Charlie. Ray is cut 4 strokes and Vincent 1 stroke.
M&M was taken at the Annex where the service is very slow but the food quite good and the beverage affordable.
