We had 6 full flights for today’s game at Palm Garden ….. well almost 6 full flights …. unfortunately one player pulled out at the very last minute which is a shame as there were a couple of players on waitlist who could have played. Anyway 23 of us headed out from 2 tee boxes onto the wonderful fairways of Palm Garden.
The course was in remarkable condition with fairways like smooth carpets, hardly needing the lift, clean and place rule we normally have and the greens although quite sandy were very good, quite fast and with some tricky slopes to read.
The weather was perfect although very humid and hot on the last few holes. We all made good time as there were only a handful of other players out on the course. We took lunch at the clubhouse and with a generous contribution by Brian Stubbs of RM200 for his birthday (Thank You Brian) and a very generous contribution of RM400 from Andrew Robinson (Thank You kindly Andrew) to celebrate his 400th game this helped greatly in reducing the costs.
The club also kindly donated a 2 ball free voucher to our group …. I suggested that this should go to the winner and the last in the group but this obviously fell on Mike’s deaf side!
The winner today was Stuart Taylor with 41 points (gross of 85) … duly cut 5. The runner up was Andrew Cseszko with 40 points on count back from Mike Williams and Peter May both also on 40 points. Best gross of the day went to Jason Winter with a 76. Most golf of the day was shared between Andrew Robinson and Julien Hodson-Walker and was more like a cricket score than a golf score!
