The 2nd Gordon Wingate Memorial Trophy golf competition was held again at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort with 6 flights teeing off on the East 1 and West 9 nines at just after 8:00am. There were golfers from the Loose Cannons group, The FRID’ Eggs group, the ladies LEGS group and some friends of Nancy who came from Dubai.
Course conditions were good albeit a bit of a mixed bag between the two nines played. The East 1 course had obviously recently had the greens hollow tined and were quite bumpy and somewhat slow. Even the fairways were not in their usual immaculate condition. The West course however had lightning fast greens which caught everyone unaware.
Weather was good and everyone was back in the clubhouse by just after 1pm in time for the lunch held at the Spring Garden Chinese Restaurant. Nancy Wingate made a thank you speech followed by the presentation of the prizes and raffle ticket winners by Peter Davies.
Many thanks to all he participants for this annual competition and a big thank you to all those kind donations of money and prizes for the day. Any excess monies will be donated to the Malaysian Heart Foundation, a charity chosen by Nancy Wingate.
