It was a wet and rainy start to our round at Bukit Unggul today with 4 flights heading out from 2 tee boxes before 8:00am. For the first 2 holes it rained steadily but then luckily eased up to make it more pleasant for the rest of the game.
The course has improved with most improvements seen on the greens. Even some areas that had been damaged by wild boar seemed to be better now. In many locations around the course we saw a number of stuffed toy tigers strategically placed in areas where a lot of monkeys had been a nuisance … however the monkeys have just moved elsewhere now.
At the turn we noticed a large group of golfers on the next nine …. a total of 6 players plus caddies … it looked like a large convention! Apparently Bukit Unggul are now allowing “Jumbo Flights” during the week with 6-balls …… not good if you get landed behind this rabble. Luckily though they did not hold us up on the back nine.
After the game we had lunch at Restoran East of Highway with 16 of us attending.
The winner today was Tony Morris with 88 for 39 points on countback from Graham Cadman also on 39 points. Tony did not make lunch so his winnings were kindly donated to the pot … thank you Tony! Best gross of the day was Mike Williams with an 81. It was interesting to note that the Bukit Unggul members playing today with their superior local knowledge of the course were all placed high in the score table today. Full scores below:
