Bernie Schobert had to pull-out late last evening due to an old neck injury, so we were one short of four flights.
We were all there early this morning but as when I came to the registration a Korean caretaker were already there finishing up their registration, however we were able to tee-off ahead of that smaller group. An hour later or so the big bulk of them had arrived filling the area, some of them were sporty dressed-up good looking head-turners, that we don’t see around during the Korean off-season. One would think the clubs are very happy about the number of Koreans playing here during their winter
It was a warm humid morning with no breeze although later in the game we got a little breeze. The course were in a good nick but a bit dry in certain sections and e.g. shipping into to green cased many long returning puts, so it was a mixed feeling i would say.
We were just short of two players at the post game lunch at East of Highway, that really made my last convener game more memorable with that high “noise” level. Obviously the group had sent the hat around as I received a bottle Portuguese Wine, a very nice T-shirt and a box of golf balls, many thanks for that. Actually there is one more thing to arrived later I learned, that’s okay as good things take longer time.
The winner Graham Cadman who signed up as the last player won with 39 points receiving the first monthly medal of 2020.
Mike Smith came up from Melaka to make sure the convener transition followed the rules, came second with 37 points. Shared third Bernard Romahn and Roger Surieux with 36.
We had 570Rm left in the kitty so that was all spent on food and drinks and drinks, I topped up the difference to close the bill.
How has the three years as convener task been, nice and mostly fun I would say and I have no regrets at all.
Many Thanks Everyone – Hans
