We had 20 players today for the weekly Loose Cannons game at Bukit Unggul … good turnout perhaps as Tony Morris was celebrating his 400th game with a large drinks contribution at the after game lunch …. it certainly wasn’t because of the quality of the course. I know I have criticised Bukit Unggul before …. so let me continue …..
Two words ….. Goat Track …..
The course was in very poor shape with shocking greens which had been recently hollowtined and sanded, the usual messy fairways, bare tee boxes and numerous areas dug up and ruined by wild pigs. There seems to be no attempt by the golf course management to address even the simplest of issues with large holes in the course as shown below …..
as well as the very basic maintenance for the tee areas …..
and of course the greens were a complete shambles covered with sand and with numerous bumps and holes …..
Even the holes were completely messed up …. poorly cut with uneven, bare, raggedy edges.
On Hole No 12 the complete green had been dug up with only a small temporary green in front (apparently!) …. of course our group didn’t even spot the temporary green as the childish clowns in the flight in front (Cousins/Wise/Robinson/Morris) had moved the flag onto the dug up original green … thanks lads …. very sporting! We couldn’t even spot the temporary green without the flag.
After the game we had a good lunch at East of Highway Restaurant with 16 players attending and much cold beer flowing.
Many thanks to the kind contributions into the lunch/drinks pot from Tony Morris (celebrating his 400th game with Loose Cannons) and from Ray Funnell celebrating his birthday.
