We had 5 full flights today and arriving at Tasik Puteri there were a number of other golfing groups registering making it a little busier than normal. As we registered and had some snacks/refreshments it was amusing once again to watch the continuing saga of Barry Cousins ordering eggs …. he ordered “two eggs any style” from the menu and was served ONE fried egg ….. as I left for the registration desk I could hear him complaining to the serving staff …. he eventually got his two eggs …. see photo below.
We played the Putera and Tasik 9’s today …. the Puteri course closed for maintenance. It was hard going today as the course looked like it had been unattended to for some time with long grass in the rough (and fairway) and rather bumpy and sandy greens. There were also some very wet and boggy areas due to the constant heavy rain lately. Play was very slow due to a lengthy wait (35 mins) to tee off then being held up by numerous groups in front.
We finished close to 2pm making it a 5hr+ round! Our last hole was done in heavy lashing rain so arrived back at the clubhouse severely soaked through, wet and cold.
Lunch post game was taken at the usual M&M Chinese Restaurant back down the road towards Rawang.
The winner today was Mike Williams with a modest 36 points (gross of 88) with Martin Walsh a runner up with 33 points (gross of 90). Best gross of the day was Martin Walsh and Russell Maw both with 88. The results reflected the tough playing conditions today. Mike Williams didn’t make lunch today so as is customary his winnings went into the pot towards lunch … thank you Mike! Full results below:
