On a beautiful morning of light high cloud and a nice breeze, 16 LC’s teed it up at Berjaya Hills on time, after a smooth check in. Jeff Pearce, having been very cold the last time he played here, arrived suitably clad in a heavy sweater!!!….which was not needed.
Berjaya Hills is always a bit of a gamble as to the condition of the course but yesterday it was in good overall condition and a pleasure to play. The first 3 or 4 greens on the front 9 were poor and bumpy but the rest were fair. There were a lot of patches of wild boar grubbing but mercifully not on the greens and the bunkers were OK but some rakes are needed. The Gibbons were noticeable by their absence which was a pity but our flight had the pleasure of the company of a Pig Tailed Macaque who ambled across in front of the 6th tee box as we were teeing up and then sauntered up to the green with an occasional disdainful glance over his shoulder at us intruders. Very nice.
The winner with an outstanding 90 for 46 points was Brian Stubbs, cut 4 strokes. The R/U ocb was Richard Moss with 41 points from Bernhard Romahn. The lowest gross was 78 by Geoff McLaws. The full results below:
15 golfers attended lunch at the newly renovated Restoran 126 where we enjoyed some inexpensive, slow to arrive grub and a lot of equally inexpensive Tiger Beer.
