Results – Perangsang Templer – 25th June 2013

Only 12 players, eventually turned out for the Trophy game at Perangsang. Numbers were down as a result of concern over the haze. As it turned out only light haze was experienced and on the second nine the sun actually broke through. Considering the past few days, conditions were much better than predicted, and in fact quite pleasant…. The course was dry and good runs and some unlucky bounces were had by all. The greens were slow, after heavy watering on the front 9 , but the back 9 which had been lightly sanded were fast and true.

The winner on the day , and breaking his duck was Graham Cadman with a 94 for 45 points, cut 9. Well done. He beat , what in effect turned out to be a head / head match with Aftab Ahmad 94 for 42 points. Cut 1. Lowest gross was by Geoff, 82. Full results attached.

This was Aftab’s last game for a couple of months as he is off to California. Safe trip.

10 players enjoyed a superb meal at Selayang Tang Dynasty, the recently renovated restaurant, where we were also made most welcome.

Results – Nilai Springs Golf Club – 11th June 2013

23 Players turned out in beautiful weather, and the course was in excellent condition. Much improved since our last visit. The greens played true, and all the positives contributed to some excellent scores.

Results – Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort, Carey Island – 4th June 2013

Many thanks for Ted in helping to arrange the LC s first outing at Amverton Cove. An enjoyable morning’s golf, helped by efficient and welcoming staff, was enjoyed by most on this newly established course. 24 players teed off on time, off the recommended blues, quite amazing, as most did not get too lost. The sanded greens were quick and true and the undulations caused a few 4 putts…. The water attractions apparently ate a few balls. The scores were higher than expected on what appeared to be a short and not too
demanding course.   We had 4 guests. Hopefully 3 of them, Paul, Hans and Bernie will be joining us on a fairly regular basis.

4 People were tied on 40 points. Iain Wise, Joe Zorich, Hans Bohi, and the eventual winner on countback was Barry Cousins. Barry has been cut 4 and Hans 1. 

An enjoyable, good value, lunch was had by most of the participants by the river.
