We returned to Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club for our monthly trophy game for April with 21 players attending. We tee’d off from two tee boxes at 8:00am and were rewarded with wonderful weather and great course conditions. We started om the easier first nine which were more open and flat leaving the more difficult back 9 till we were all warmed up!
The course was in very good shape and the greens excellent but sometimes difficult to read. The back 9 are particularly scenic with more elevation and blind shots to the green making it much more of a challenge. The course is long and it was sometimes (frequently?) difficult to reach the green in regulation.
After the game we had lunch at a new venue, Restoran Loon Sing, close to Nilai and one we pass frequently on the way to Staffield Golf Club. The food was good but it was very expensive – luckily we were well subsidised this week with Ray Funnell pitching in RM400 for his 400th game, Hans donating RM300 for his 300th game, Brian Stubbs RM100 for his 100th game and Aftab RM150 for his birthday last week …. thanks to all.
The winner of the April Monthly Trophy was Ricardo Castro with a 86 for 37 points.
Runner up was Aftab Ahmad with 97 for 34 points on count back from Stuart Taylor also on 34 points. Full results below:
A congratulation toast was made to Joe Lacy for his succesful completion of the London Marathon last Sunday in a time of 6 hrs 19 mins which is not much more than some of our slower players take to get round 18 holes sometimes!! Well done Joe.
