An excellent turnout of 23 players for the game today at Monterez Golf Club. We teed off from 2 tee boxes shortly after our allocated time of 7:45 – held up slightly by some late comers who arrived only at 7:40ish!
The weather was good albeit very humid and the course was relatively quiet so we made good time round the 2 9’s. Conditions of the course was good, the fairways were a little uneven and patchy but the greens were in excellent shape. The greens keeper was either very vindictive or had a bad night last night as the hole positions on most of the greens were cut in tough, sloping locations. The course played rather short which was reflected in the scoring of the day.
9 out of the 23 players played to or below their handicaps which will mean the Handicap Manager’s knife will be out this evening before next game! The winner with a great score of 96 for 41 points was Robert Mulliss. Second, on count back from Kevin Wiggins and Andrew Robinson, was Ted Parslow with 39 points. Best gross of the day was 78 from Ted Parslow – well done!
Lunch was taken at the Choong Foong Seafood Restaurant close to the club and the meal enjoyed by everyone by all accounts. We will for sure use this venue again as the food and drink are reasonable and the parking is good.
