At the last moment some lost cannons found their way back to the group so we ended up with 3 full flights attacking Bangi. I haven’t seen it that busy in Bangi for a long time. Lots of golfers were probably out to play one last game before another lock-down started. Despite all this we were on our way around 8:00 am; playing the blue tees since Bangi is not that long. The course is in a good condition and still improving; very good value for money. Unfortunately flight 2 and 3 were held up by a slow flight that sneaked in on the 2nd 9. It took us at least half an hour more to get around.
We had some decent scores today with a number of players better or close to their handicap. Martin ran away with the money today (90/40), followed closely by Ricardo (81/39) and Tony coming in 3rd (88/38). See all scores below.
The monthly ranking after 2 games is headed by Ricardo and Martin with both 70 points, followed by Tony with 67 points.
Lunch after the game was at East of Highway. Thanks to Dave for organizing the table and the cold beers waiting for us since he was there already for about 45 minutes. The food is always good there and they didn’t disappoint us. We had a few mystery prizes to forget the lock-down misery. Sleeve of ball for Dave for keeping him waiting so long and also for nearly being killed by Brian on the first hole. Luckily Brian missed a lot of his targets today. Another sleeve for Ricardo since he plays so many times lowest gross. And the last sleeve for Robert playing most gross today.
Since the lock-down rules are unclear with regard to playing golf (especially the travel restrictions) we have to see whether we can play next Tuesday. The courses are open and have re-established the 1 person/1 buggy rule. A few groups have booked for the coming days to play golf so let’s see what that brings. It looks like we have to go for some trial and error………..I have booked 3 flights at Palm Garden 20 October 8:00 am. If it doesn’t work out I can always cancel. Let’s see………. So who wants to play; names please?
Thanks to Ricardo Castro and Martin Belderink for the photos.
