Results for Port Klang, Tuesday 3rd July 2012

Port Klang Golf Resort to give it it’s correct name, is hardly a ‘resort’ but it is certainly a nice golf course and the 11 LC’s that reported for the game found it in good condition, particularly the fairways which were as good as we find anywhere. Since we last played here they have invested in some new grass cutting equipment which has made for a big improvement in the playing surface surprise, surprise.

Barry looking happy…but not for long!

Hans, Mike & JeffAfter some heavy overnight rain in Klang there were some soft areas here and there, especially around the greens, and the bunkers needed raking. The greens were slow but true and the green mowing machine operative seemed to be set on cutting the greens we had just played rather that those we were about to play! We had the course to ourselves save for a lone walker ahead of us, and with individual Turf Mates (which are good fun but a bit hard on the knees; Barry’s knees having had enough after 9 holes) we were all round in under 4 hours. 
….and just in case you wonder where the name “Turf Mate” came from….now you know!
The weather was perfect; some high light cloud but clear air and low humidity, so all-in-all a good mornings golf.
Signs of neglect!
Any bridge builders amongst us?

The narrowest of bunkers in a wide fairway & where does Raymond’s ball end up? 
Mike just totally missed that putt as you can see;-)

Is that Raymond’s ball in another tiny bunker again? [Ball magnet!]

Another dodgy bridge!
Even this info board is looking tired!
Don’t even think about it Mike. You know it will end in tears!
Port Klang Golf Resort is a well kept secret, maligned by many for reasons unknown. Certainly the club house is nothing to write home about and the changing rooms are in urgent need of some TLC but if it’s a pleasant round of golf your looking for, then its a good venue. It’s not short at almost 6000 metres off the Whites and with a slope of 123 it’s not the easiest layout we play. It has lots of water, large greens and some challenging holes and is only 35 minutes away for most of us so it’s a course we should play more often.
The winner was Bernhard Romahn with 44 points and the runner-up was Raymond Keys with 43 points.The lowest gross was 84 by Bernhard and the most golf was played by George Murray with 111.
Bernhard  is cut 8 strokes and Raymond 1 stroke, lucky bugger.
Barry still looking Happy despite quitting after 9 holes!
Benhard pockets the RM50 winnings!

The loooooong plank walk
Doing the maths! 

Still doing the maths!! 
Full house and happy bunch!
We had a table overlooking the river, reserved earlier by Jeff Pearce who also ordered the grub which was excellent. The prawns were a bit pricey at RM100 but delicious. It was one of those lunches where everyone got involved in the banter and the beer and wine flowed freely; a very good lunch indeed.
