It’s been at least 4 years since Cannons played Danau so we returned with the promise of renovated greens via information from Geoff Parslow. This course has always been a tough and challenging course with some rather interesting holes. We had a tee time of 8:00am but it was a slow start as our 5 flights were all off one tee box and there were players in front … and it was slow going after that waiting on almost every hole making it a 5 hour round.
The course was good and although the greens were good they were soft and spongy. Putting on the sloping greens against the grain was also something of a a challenge.
We eventually finished about 1:45 and just before the rain came luckily. Lunch was at the Restoran East of the Highway and we made it there just before the kitchen closed. The food here was excellent other than the yam basket with rather smelly squid …. note that we should not order this again.
Winner of the day with an excellent 40 points (gross of 86) was Tony Morris, with Geoff McLaws runner up some 7 points behind with 33 points and the best gross of the day at 83. As well as the RM50 pot Tony Morris won a free 4-flight voucher for Danau which had been kindly donated by the golf club manager who Ted and Geoff Parslow know well.
We had one non finisher, Andrew Chez, who had to leave 2 holes from the finish. We also had a couple of players who didn’t submit scores so it is important to make sure that every player records their score and submits it otherwise it will not be recorded. If you are not going to the post game lunch please make sure that you hand in the scores to someone from your flight who is.
