16 LCs teed off from Templer Park CC’s 1st and 10th tee at 8:30 under bright morning light.
The course was in its usual fine shape with rather fast green for front nine and bit slower green in the back nine.
We were not affected by rain the whole game but it was rather muggy with no wind which affected many players with their concentration (as they claim). It might have been one of the factor for only 3 players scoring below 100 today.
Winner was Geoff McLaws with 81 for 32 points. Runner up was a three-way tie between Bernard Romahn, Brian Stubbs and Kevin Wiggins all with 28 points. Best gross was Geoff with 81. Full results below:
With many players away on the KLOGS tour to Vietnam there were only 11 players today for our game at Seri Selangor Golf Club with Kevin Wiggins acting as Convenor as Hans was on the KLOGS trip. We started early and were off before 7:30am. The course was in good condition and as tricky as it always is. Weather was overcast making it relatively cool all the way round.
We noticed some course improvements with a new deep pot bunker placed at the right side of the green on Hole No 11, which was duly checked out by Paul Collett!
We were finished just after 12 noon and 7 of us made lunch at Pantai Seafood for some great food and the most welcome cold beers. And just for Hans’ attention we had a lovely large plate of huge prawns ……..
Only two players managed to play to handicap today and Stuart Taylor and Paul Geddes both shot 36 points requiring a count back on the last 6 holes which Paul won – so Paul Geddes was the winner this week with Stuart Taylor runner up. Paul’s round of 82 got the best gross award. Full scores below:
Joe Lacy and his son Jack successfully completed the London Marathon and raised an incredible 11,000 pounds Sterling + for Parkinsons …. read Joe’s blog report linked below with some fantastic photos of the event.
Congratulations again to Joe and Jack!
We had 21 players today for our game at Tasik Puteri – a rather odd number so we ended up having 4 flights of 4 and a jumbo 5-ball flight at the rear. We all had to start on the Tasik course as there was a competition on the other two nines and then we crossed over to the Puteri course. The weather was perfect with blue skies and even a light cooling breeze making it a pleasant round. The course was in good condition but the greens on the Tasik nine were markedly faster than the greens on the Puteri course.
We finished by 12:30 and then departed for lunch at the Chin Heong Restaurant close to Rawang. Andrew Robinson and Siegmund Maierbrugger who were celebrating birthdays kindly added some cash to the coffers to help out for lunch. Happy Birthday boys!!
With 2 players on a best score of 39 points we had to do a countback with Stuart Taylor and Siegmund Maierbrugger both on 39 points. They had identical back 9’s of 20 points so we had to look at the last 6 holes at which point Stuart was the winner this week. Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with a 79. Full scores tabulated below:
Our first game of May was held at KGSAAS in Shah Alam with 6 full flights teeing off on the President and Sultan courses at 7:30am. It was a beautiful morning and the course was in fairly good condition. The greens on the Sultan 9 had been sanded but were still running very well.
After the game we had lunch on the terrace and with a kindly contribution from Joe Lacy (late Birthday celebration) the cost was very good.
The winner this week was Ricardo Castro with an excellent score of 81 for 40 points. We had 3 joint runners up all on 37 points; Martin Walsh, Stan Constantinides and Geoff McLaws. Best gross today was Geoff McLaws with an excellent 76. Full results below:
