Because of the Hari Raya Public Holidays on Mon/Tues 28th/29th July we had to have our weekly game on Wednesday 30th July. This was the trophy game and was held at KGPA.
Although the recent severe haze conditions threatened play, overnight rainfall cleared things up making it a pleasant although humid day. We had 17 players and after the usual inefficient and stressful checkin we all got off on two tee boxes on time. Unfortunately due to the lack of caddies (which were compulsory and part of the package) our last flight were without caddies – apologies for this. We did however not pay for this.
Most of us were finished in about 4 hours although the groups who teed off on the 1st nine were held up by some slow groups ahead. Course conditions were good – the course is being very well maintained at the moment following the fairly recent upgrade. This course is a tough and challenging course and being cow grass always plays long so we did not expect great scores.
After the game we had a pleasant lunch at the Selangor Club Sports Annexe – many thanks to Tony Morris and Andrew Robinson for facilitating our entry.
We did have 3 players breaking their handicap today and the July Trophy winner with an excellent gross 83 and 42 points was Mike Williams – congratulations Mike. Second with 86 and 40 points was Tony Morris (now fully recovered from his recent dengue fever episode). Best gross of the day was Geoff Parslow with a 79 …. and 2 eagles!
