We had 5 full flights at Bukit Unggul today and welcomed our new member Brian Buckley on his first official game (he did play at the Golf Charity Match but this was not scored).
2 notable senior moments this morning …….
- Paul Geddes made a detour in the morning on the way to golf (as he had “plenty of time”) to go to an ATM machine only to get stuck in bad traffic on his return trip to the club ending up being late and having to pay the RM20 fine …. just as well he went to the ATM!
- Stan Constantinides arriving early at the club in the dark made a wrong turn and drove down the buggy track to the golfer’s terrace area …. just as well he has a small car!
We started on split tees on time at just before 8:00am and it was our Highest Gross Winner from last week, Martin Belderink, who kicked off the game with an honoroury exploding ball shot on the 10th tee!
The course was in better shape than I have seen for a while and the greens were very good although some still had a lot of sand on them. Some tee boxes need to be attended to however ….. and of course as usual the showers after the game were stone cold.
We had lunch at the club after the game with 18 people attending.
The winner today was Bernard Romahn with 82 for 42 points and runner up was Kevin Wiggins with 88 for 38. Best gross today was shared by Bernard Romahn and Mike Williams, both with 82. Full results below:
