While the Batam Away group were heading off for 3 days of golf in Indonesia the stragglers arranged a game here in KL. Registration this morning at Monterez was easy and was helped financially by a very good deal if using Maybank or CIMB debit cards where we could get a rate of RM68 per player for that flight. Thanks to Allan Wright and Stan Constantinides we got cheap rates for 2 flights. Normal rates were RM106 so all in all a good deal.
As expected Monterez was quite moist given the recent rain and its tendancy to get wet easily. However apart from a few plugged balls on the fairways the course was generally in good shape and the greens very good. The slopes on the greens and the pin positions however made it quite tricky. Weather was good but did get a bit hot near the end of the round.
We had an excellent lunch after the game at the nearby Choong Foong Seafood Restaurant and lunch was well washed down by many cold beers kindly aided by a kind RM200 input from Paul Geddes for a recent birthday. Happy Birthday Paul!
The winner today was Stuart Taylor with 81 for 41 points. Runner up was Peter Davies with 91 for 39 (on count back from Kevin Wiggins with 83 for 39). Best gross of the day was Paul Geddes with an 80. Full results below:
