[Just an introduction to the fun game, On the first day, on Monday, we had the “fun game” with 6 of us. We welcomed Peter Kane, a new member, definitely planning to join the loose Cannons, and he decided to join the tour as the first event with us. So we played with Bernhard, Ricardo, Ronald, Peter, Diederik and Jan.
We played Seremban International, a course we never played before and we were therefore anxious to see how that was. The travel to the course is only a couple of minutes more than driving to Nilai Springs or Staffield. The course is outside Seremban, so you don’t have to go into town at all.
At arrival, check-in was easy and efficient, not very busy, and very friendly staff.
It was an interesting course, the first nine a bit soggy, of course, due to the wet weather recently. It caused us to lose some plugged balls, but interesting holes. The second nine was drier, and also the greens were faster. In total, not an easy course, but worthwhile to come back to. We decided to put this course on our list of golf courses. Lunch at the club is very affordable.]
Back to the first away game,
Wednesday we played the first game of the competition. Tiara Melaka, home course of Mike, was the choice and there we played the Lake and Meadow nines. Beautiful layout of the course, where the buggy tracks can use some proper maintenance. The buggies we used were diesel driven, which caused us quite some problems. Chia managed to break down two buggies, and Ronald drove through a deep puddle and lost the power on his buggy.
The golf was very good and Bernhard played the game of his life. He finished first with 39 points! He also had the lowest gross score of 85 strokes. The runner-up for the day was Diederik with 32 points.
During a good lunch at the club, we welcomed Diederik as a new member, having just played his fifth game for the Loose Cannons.
Evening dinner was in the Pampas restaurant on the 41st floor of the hotel tower. Pampas, our new sponsor, welcomed us in a very nice setting, sitting outside after we waited for a small rain shower to finish. Plenty of drinks and good food resulted in a late evening.
