What we thought initially was the dreaded haze as we arrived at Tasik Puteri was just early morning mist which soon burned off leaving us to a beautiful day on the course with bright blue clear skies. The course was in pretty good shape although very dry in places. The greens were deadly – dry and fast so those with slopes and undulations were most tricky.
With 5 flights and 18 players we all got off without any fuss and were all back at the clubhouse in good time. There were some good scores posted today – the winner Stuart Taylor with 85 for 39 points and in shared 2nd place was Richard Moss with 107 for 37 points and Glen Wombwell with 100 for 37 points. It must again be noted that players are not calculating their Stableford points correctly and at least 3 or 4 players had to have their score adjusted after the cross check and one player even stated an incorrect handicap on their card …. every player should know their correct handicap before the start of the round … if you can’t remember ask the Convenor or the Handicap Manager.
We had an excellent lunch at the usual Chinese restaurant close to the club – well ordered Glenn Wombwell! …. and Robert Mulliss kindly sponsored the drinks to celebrate his birthday – Thank You Robert! We all said our farewells to Keith Wiggins (Kevin’s brother) who has been joining us for the past few weeks – he is returning shortly back to UK.
Also noted that this was Ray Funnell’s 300th game and Kevin Wiggins’ 201st game today ….. we all look forward to some celebratory refreshments next week!
