Results – Staffield – 30th January 2018

When we played this course in November last year I was told when registering next time we need to bring proof of age to get the benefits of seniors green fee. I called them Monday but no change of process. Oh boy, what a registration process one had to go through as they checked our proof of age for validity, three Malaysian driving licenses were not valid as it had no birthday date…no birthday date…. and a number of others needed clarification of which of the numbers is the birthday of the holder. Then they were all copied and after that the actual registration commenced.

By the time it was finished, a line of six-seven others were waiting behind me for the same process. And in the meantime two minibuses of Koreans had arrived and occupied the first tee-box of the Western nine which was allotted to our last three flights. One don’t take a fight with a stern looking Korean so eventually the club opened the Northern nine for us, but in hindsight it should have remained closed.

So much for booking well in advance, I need to find a better way of fixing this, group booking is perhaps the answer.

I have never experienced the course as wet and soggy before with lack of maintenance in certain areas which I think explain the high gross scores in many cases. But the weather was very nice, a bit hot though.

As many times before we had the lunch at the club with 19 of the 24 players attending. Yeah the food could be a bit better but with so many eating on the way home it’s not really working well as it will drag out forever until one can order the food.

So did we have any really good scores, yes three of twenty-four beat the course and they were:

Winner on count back Paul Collett with 91/39 who is the first winner of this month’s trophy from Royal Selangor

Runner up, Ricardo Castro with 83/39

Third and lowest gross Andrew Cseszko with 78/37

Paul Collet, January 2018 Champion
When I left the course, a flock of cows were grazing just outside going right. Being an old farmer boy I had to make a u-turn to take a few pictures and having a chat, I like cows.

An eventful and memorable day – Hans
