Results for Nilai Springs Tuesday 13th March

17 LC’s assembled at Nilai Springs Tuesday having had to cancel the proposed visit to Berjaya Hills as they had closed one nine. We will try there again in a couple of weeks time.
The weather was good for golf but recent heavy rain had left the bunkers hard, rutted and with little sand. The greens were lightly sanded and rather slow for Nilai and because of the wet conditions buggies were restricted to the track but otherwise the course was in reasonable nick. When is this period of heavy rain going to end? This should be the dry season right now.
Again this week we were delayed by some very slow players ahead; Koreans I believe, a couple of 2 BALLS holding up a 4 BALL. The Marshall had to be called when 3 flights were waiting on one tee box. These Koreans are coming to Malaysia increasingly, particularly this time of the year when golf courses in Korea are frozen, and I suppose there’s not much we can do about it other than avoid the courses during the Korean winter that they frequent.
The winner was David Hughes with 43 points and the runner-up Hans Berger with 41 points. The lowest gross was shot jointly by John Laidley and newcomer Geoff McLaws with 82’s. The most golf was played by Ken Oakley with 117.
Welcome to Geoff McLaws and bon voyage Ken Oakley. He’s back to the states later this week.
David is cut 7 strokes (which will bring his handicap back to where it belongs) and Hans 1 stroke.

Results for Tasik Puteri – Tuesday 6th March 2011

After so much wet weather in KL these past two weeks it came as a nice surprise to find Tasik Puteri to be very dry with firm fairways giving plenty of run and greens in good condition. The game was played in bright sun for the most part and it was quite hot but with a cooling breeze later in the round.

Dry as a bone!
The winner with an outstanding 44 points was Ted Parslow and the runner-up with 41 points was David Hughes. The low gross was Ted’s 78 and the most golf was played by Alan Holgate with 121. Ted is cut 8 strokes and David 1 stroke.

Ted (this weeks winner) sitting beside Vincent (last weeks winner)!
That cost a 1 stroke penalty! I can see the ball but can you see the moustache? 

Condolences go to Andre Holm who suffered a groin injury with his first drive of the morning and had to retire.
Only 10 of the 18 player found their way to the Equatorial for an excellent lunch.
