The first game of 2016 was held at KGSAAS with 19 players in 5 flights teeing off on the Sultan and Alam Shah 9’s under the command of our new Convenor, Mike Smith. The weather was good with clear skies making it rather hot and sticky by the time we concluded at around 1pm. The course was in good condition and I didn’t hear any complaints from anyone – if we were to be picky there were a couple of greens under repair with some patches but otherwise the greens were very good.
We took lunch at the excellent Pantai Seafood which is great value for money and with the RM50 added into the pot from the winner (thanks Ray!) who wasn’t there to collect it and the added bonus of Alan Holgate buying the beers to celebrate his 80th Birthday it was a rather cheap lunch. Many thanks Alan for your kind drinks purchase – we all look forward to the Big 90th Bash!
The winner today was Ray Funnell with 39 points and a gross of 95 and the runner up was Stuart Taylor with 38 points and the best gross of the day of 84. Under the new “Social Golf Rules” Ray will be cut by 4 strokes and all other players will go up 1. Full results below :
