The Monthly Trophy game for October was held at KGSAAS with 20 players entered. We all got off on the Sultan and Alam Shah nines at around 8:00am and after some very heavy early morning rain in KL it was cool and overcast making it very pleasant to play.
We welcomed first time guest Bert Beekes (guest of Eric Van Donselaar) who joined us this morning.
Our 3rd flight off Sultan were held up briefly as Julien Hodson-Walker was not allowed to play in his cargo shorts and had to quickly return to the pro shop to purchase some acceptable golf shorts. He returned in some lurid pink shorts so along with Sigi in his brilliant shiny green (boxing) shorts made for a colourful flight indeed!
The course was in good condition although greens were somewhat erratic; some ok and some quite slow. It was good to see some ongoing maintanance around the course with some serious tree felling operations which made the course look tidier.
The winner of the October Monthly Trophy was Ray Funnell with 100 for 38 with Bernard Romahn and Sigi Maierbrugger in tied second place on 36 points. Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an 84. Full results below:
