Results – Staffield Country Resort – 29th January 2019

img_4351

With 5 full flights and a promised early tee time of 7:30am we knew when we arrived at Staffield this was going to be a problem. It was busy with many walkers already getting ready and heading to the tee box as well as a large groups of other players. So after a tedious registration it was after 8:00am till we got started with all our flights teeing off from the Southern Nine then crossing over to the Northern Nine.

However once we got started it was plain sailing and the course and weather conditions were excellent. After the game we had lunch at the club and Hans Berger made the presentation for the January Monthly Medal winner and for 2019 we now do indeed get a medal for this and not a trophy as in previous years.

Results – Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club – 26th September 2017

The monthly trophy game for September was held at the scenic Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club. Although the early morning weather looked very doubtful with a large band of rolling dark clouds coming in over the course it cleared up quickly and the conditions were very pleasant all the way round. The course was in good condition and we all got round fairly quickly with the first 2 groups finished and in the restaurant by 12:30pm.

The after game lunch was at Loon Sing Restaurant which tends to be expensive for what it offers and it would probably be just as well to head back down the road to East of Highway Restaurant in future.

Many thanks to Iain Wise who donated RM200 to the kitty to celebrate his recent 200th game.

Results – Palm Garden Golf Club – 29th August 2017

The monthly trophy game for the month of August was played at Palm Garden Golf Club and with some golf vouchers gathered from the last game there we had some discount (well some of the players did!). We had only 4 full flights this week and got off from two tee boxes promptly at 8:00am.

The course was in very good condition and is always a joy to play here with beautiful fairways and excellent greens. From the white tees the course is short so making some birdie opportunities for a few players. The weather was kind as well and was actually a bit cooler than normal.

After the game we all had lunch at the club restaurant with their excellent fish and chips being a firm favourite.

Results

IMG_5233The winner of the August Trophy was Andrew Cseszko with an excellent 76 for 39 points with Ray Funnell runner up with 101 for 38 points. Best gross of the day was Andrew with his 76 and our Convenor, Hans Berger, got the most golf award. Full results below :

Results – Impian Golf & Country Club – 23rd February 2016

IMG_7225

The monthly Trophy Game for February was played at Impian Golf & Country Club with 23 players participating. After a fairly efficient check in and registration we teed off from two tee boxes at 8:00 ++. There was a little confusion over the tees that we should have played from …… Impian normally does not have white tees so the message that was conveyed to the group teeing off from Tee No 1 was play from the Blues ….. but as there were White Tees in play today the groups playing from Hole No 10 apparently used the White Tees.

The course was in great condition and the greens rather tricky and difficult to read. Play was rather slow today as there were a few slow moving groups in front …. as Mike Smith was quoted over lunch he was annoyed at the “slow elderly players in front” …. rather choice coming from our most senior player I thought!

Weather was clear and fresh at the start but became very hot and sticky by the back 9 making it most exhausting.

13 of us had lunch at the restaurant opposite Kenwell Seafood as it was closed and it was on the whole pretty good but not quite as good as Kenwell Seafood. Although the prawns were reasonably priced they were rather small and rather overcooked.

Results

We had two players on 40 Stableford points today but the February Trophy Winner on count back was Geoff Parslow with the best gross of the day of 79 and 40 points from Bernard Romahn with 85 for 40 points. Geoff will be cut 4 strokes. Well done. Full scores below:
