Tropicana was in very good condition today with greens quoted at 9′ 6″ on the stimp meter but seemed to be a lot faster when we played! We had a full 5 flights today and we got off on the East 1 and West 1 nines fairly promptly at just after 8:00am. Weather was good albeit a tad humid and sticky. We took lunch at the nearby Pantai Seafood Restaurant after the game which was predictably good and enjoyed by all 14 players who made lunch.
A warm welcome to our guests today; Joe (Marathon Man) Lacy, Stan Constantinides and Emlyn Jones.
We had quite an array of scores today from the terrible to the terrific. In the terrible category a mention must go out to local member, Mahmud Mohamed who shot a total of 16 points on his home course. The winner today with an excellent 41 points (cut 5) was Tony Morris who won on count back from Brian Stubbs , also on 41 points. 3rd place was Allan Wright who scored 40 points. Most golf of the day went to Robert Mulliss. Full results below:
