SAVE THE DATE – APRIL 13, 2018
The La Bodega Golf Classic event, 2018 will be held on Friday, April 13 at Tropicana Golf & Country Club. This year we will be supporting two charities, Myanmar Education Centre and Positive living community. Both charities have difficult financial situations and need to fundraise money towards their daily running and for the children. La Bodega will be donating a proportion of the competition fees towards these two deserving charities so please support the golf event by putting April 13 in your diaries. More details on both the event and the charities will be sent to you in due course.
Tropicana was in very good condition today with greens quoted at 9′ 6″ on the stimp meter but seemed to be a lot faster when we played! We had a full 5 flights today and we got off on the East 1 and West 1 nines fairly promptly at just after 8:00am. Weather was good albeit a tad humid and sticky. We took lunch at the nearby Pantai Seafood Restaurant after the game which was predictably good and enjoyed by all 14 players who made lunch.
A warm welcome to our guests today; Joe (Marathon Man) Lacy, Stan Constantinides and Emlyn Jones.
We had quite an array of scores today from the terrible to the terrific. In the terrible category a mention must go out to local member, Mahmud Mohamed who shot a total of 16 points on his home course. The winner today with an excellent 41 points (cut 5) was Tony Morris who won on count back from Brian Stubbs , also on 41 points. 3rd place was Allan Wright who scored 40 points. Most golf of the day went to Robert Mulliss. Full results below:

20 Players all managed to find Tropicana, one with a little difficulty, and we teed off on time. Unfortunately only 1 box was available. The course was in excellent condition, greens were fast and true and as many of us discovered the bunkers were deep and rather plentiful….!!
The winner was Klaus, scoring an excellent 85 for 46 points. Cut a large 10 points. Second was my “nominated favourite” Erol with 93 for 44. Only cut 1. Should be good for next week!!
I had the fortune of watching the lowest gross by Ted Parslow of 81, and no doubt he will enjoy asking Geoff the scores during the week. Hans “Bunker” Berger focused his game this week on doing a full and thorough review of most of the bunkers on the course …. by the end of the round his success out of the sand was definitely improving.
Many thanks to Geoff and Ted, for getting the special rate. A good day was had by all. 17 players then went to lunch at the local Star restaurant as recommended by Glen, and a good spread was rapidly devoured along with numerous amber coloured drinks.
