IMG_7934.jpg

The Monthly Trophy Game was held at Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club with 5 flights, 20 players and one guest. The course was relatively quiet so we got way sharp at 8:00am under wonderful conditions. The course was in good condition generally but we did notice that the tees were very dry and bare and the greens were not as good as before.

After the game we retired to the Loon Sing Restaurant close to the highway for lunch and the prize ceremony.

Results – Amverton Cove – 20th February 2018

 

IMG_7773There were 16 players this morning for our game at Amverton Cove and we started from 2 tee boxes ta 8:00am. The weather was good although it got very hot and humid by the back 9. The course was fairly quiet (other than the noisy caddies!) and we made good time around the 18 holes. The course was in better condition and the fairways seemed to have more grass on them now.

After the game we had lunch at the club which was surprisingly good – beer in cans only – but no one seemed to go thirsty!

Results – Bangi Golf Resort – 13th February 2018

IMG_7601

Last time we played Bangi they had been doing a lot of maintenance work on the areas around the golf course so it was somewhat disappointing today to see the state of the course. The greens were bad, uncut and slow with numeorus patches and almost all of the bunkers have been left in a bad state and all with GUR signs. Looks like the maintennace budget has finished.

However the weather was great as our 5 flights headed out on the Putrajaya and Bangi nines. This course is generally rather short even from the blues so some good scores were expected.

We had lunch after the game at the regular and excellent Restoran East of Highway where 11 of us enjoyed a good lunch and plenty of amber ale to counteract the dehydration of the game.

Results

There were some very good results today with 8 players shooting on the 40’s (Stableford Points). Our winner was Ricardo Castro with a 79 for 42 points. We had 3 runners up on 41 points; Bernard Romahn, Roger Surieux and Enzo Filoni. best gross was Niall Murray with a 78 which could have been 2 or 3 shots better had he not driven his ball OB on the very last hole.

Results – Tasik Puteri – 6th February 2018

IMG_7470

With many of our regular players away on the WIGS tour we had only 15 players today at Tasik Puteri. Arriving at the club we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful new men’s changing room which had been renovated – a huge improvemnt on the old one.

We played the Puteri and Tasik 9’s and immediately noticed at the start that the newly printed scorecards were wrong in that the Puteri and Tasik 9’s both had the same odd indexes so we had to change the Tasik 9 indexes up by 1 to make them even.

The course was in good condition although the greens were slow. The weather was pleasant with some cloud cover giving us some respite from the heat.

After the game we had lunch at Restoran Chin Heong which was attended by 11 players.
