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.
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.
