A good turnout today with 5 full flights and 20 players. Conditions were good with clear and relatively cool weather. The course was very good and the greens, although slow on the 1st 9 holes, were in great condition. We set out from 2 tee boxes and got finished by 12:30pm. 19 of us out of the 20 (surely a record, and including a surprise attendance by Ray Funnell) had lunch at the Chinese restaurant which was enjoyed by all. Although a bit on the expensive side (mainly due them charging us for small bottles of Tiger beer to fill the jugs …. 48 in total at RM13 a pop!) the Loose Cannons kitty kindly chipped in to offset this and subsequently only cost the punters RM50 a head.
Andrew Robinson turned up with new golf shoes today …. well at least we think they were golf shoes ….. but looked suspiciously like some semi-casual tennis shoes. Anyway we will be carrying out a time lapse photo project over the next year and capturing the gradual degradation of these new shoes as Andrew continues to wear them every week …. with his usual attention to cleaning his golf shoes it probably won’t be long till we see some interesting changes.
Some good scores today which is normal at this course with 6 players playing to handicap or better. The winner was Mike Smith with a excellent 41 points (gross of 89) …. well done Mike. Runner up was Stuart Taylor with 40 points (gross of 82) …. if only I had not 3 putted that last green …. sigh!
Best gross of the day was shared between Geoff Parslow and Geoff McLaws both with 81.
