After enjoying Glenmarie Valley Course 2 weeks before we returned again to enjoy the special Ramadan rate and see if we could improve our scores on this beautiful course. We had 14 players this morning and we got started on split tees at 8:00am with Enzo Filoni acting as Convenor with Hans Berger down with the flu.
Weather was good and the course was very nice. Not sure if we managed to improve our scores but it was an enjoyable morning’s golf.
Lunch was at the club after the game …. a poor idea with sub-standard food and exorbitantly priced beers. With 3 good restaurants within 10-20 mins from this club we should in future eat offsite. We were helped however by a kind Birthday donation of RM200 by David Evans and a bonus jug of beer donation from Iain Wise who bet Dave Evans he couldn’t get within a yard of the hole on the tricky 9th green when Dave was off the back of the green on the fringe …… he putted it beautifully and almost holed it!
The winner today was Jason Winter who played to handicap with 36 points, runner up was Enzo Filoni with 35 points. Best gross was Jason Winter with a 79. Full scores below:
With many players away this week on the KLOGS away we had only 3 flights today at Tropicana Golf & Country Resort. We had a later tee off time of 8:21am so there was time for some breakfast.
Our 3 flights started on the West Course then crossed over to the East 1 Course. Weather conditions were hot and humid, no surprises there. The course was in great shape and always a joy to play. The greens were great but well protected by numerous deep bunkers.
We all finished around 1pm and had lunch on at the golfers deck along with numerous cold beers.
The winner this week was Brian Stubbs who had a great round of 94 for 37 points. Runner up was Tony Morris with 90 for 35. Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an 83. Full results below:
With the start of Ramadan here in Malaysia we took advantage of the special Ramadan golf rates and played Glenmarie today at a bargain price of RM160. We had 4 flights and we played the Valley Course which was good for me as I had not played this course now for many years.
Weather conditons were excellent and the course was in great shape although the greens were running rather quickly which caught many players out.
After the game we had planned to have lunch at the club but due to some electrical problems they could do some limited food but unfortunately there was no beer so this was the deal breaker. Those staying for lunch therefore retired to the nearby La la Chong restaurant where multiple cold Carlsbergs were consumed along with some good food.
Winner today was Iain Wise with a score of 97 for 34 points with Stan Constantides taking runner up position with 92 for 33 points. Best gross was Stuart Taylor with 91 and most gross was Roger McGowan with 123. Full scores below :
