The last game of 2016 and the December Trophy Game was held at Sungai Long Golf & Country Club. We got started late at 8:30am due to some hold up due to a large group playing and some delay because of the overnight rain. Our 5 flights got off on two tee boxes and even after the very heavy rain the previous day the course was in remarkeable condition. The fairways were a little soggy in places but playable and the greens were excellent.
Weather was cool and overcast making it a pleasant morning with everyone finishing by around 1- 1:30pm. Lunch was at the Fei Wai Restaurant after the game where 12 of us enjoyed some good food and much needed rehydration in the form of beer!
Our winner today and December Trophy winner, having held back all year, was Roger McGowan with an excellent 96 for 42 points.
Runner up was Graham Cadman with an 97 for 39 points and 3rd was Stuart taylor with 89 for 38. best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with an 83. Full results below:
It was a beautiful morning with blue skies today as 5 flights tee’d off at Sungai Long Golf & Country Club. As usual the golf management had closed the 2nd tee box till 8:30am otherwise we would have been off a little quicker …. makes no sense whatsoever.
The course conditions were wonderful, with fairways like carpets, well maintained bunkers (not that I really knew as I avoided them all morning!) and beautiful greens that ran true. A very well maintained course and always a joy to play.
We were all finished before 1pm then it was off to Fei Wai restaurant for lunch. Many thanks to the Birthday boys, Ricardo Castro and Geoff McLaws who kindly sponsored the beers.
Our winner this week was Mike Williams with an excellent 82 for 42 points (cut 6) … he didn’t make lunch so his RM50 winnings went into the lunch pot. Runner up was Ricardo Castro with 85 for 40 points. Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with an 79. Full results below:
Once again we returned to Sungai Long taking advantage of the good Ramadan golf rate deal. We had 5 flights today with 19 players and we got off without a delay off two tee boxes at just after 8:00am. Weather was very pleasant and not too hot. The course had experienced some heavy rain over the weekend but the fairways and greens were very good – only the bunkers sadly were in rather a mess (cost me 5 shots on my round!).
We all finished by 1:00pm’ish and we headed off for lunch at the Fei Wai Restaurant. Again lunch was very good and enjoyed by all – it was noted that our old haunt Ken Well Seafood Restaurant was still closed.
The winner by a margin today was Brian Stubbs with an excellent round of 93 for 43 points. Runner up was Peter May with 103 for 41 and 3rd place was Hans Berger with 94 for 37 . Best gross of the day was Andrew Chez with an 81. Full results below:
Taking advantage of the Ramadan golfing rates we had 16 players at today’s Loose Cannon’s game at Sungai Long. The course was in excellent condition and the weather conditions were very good making it a pleasurable round. We were delayed a little as the starter didn’t allow some of us to start on the front 9 due to ongoing maintenance. However we were all finished by 1pm and quickly adjourned for lunch at Kenwell Seafood ….. but Kenwell was closed so we moved over the road to the Fei Wai Seafood Restaurant. Food here was good and reasonably priced so we may well be back here.
We had one flight today who were unable to submit their card as the player with the card did not come for lunch…. so their scores were done from memory. We again must remind players to have a completed scorecard and make sure that this is submitted by someone from your flight who will be attending the lunch.
Our winner today was Jason Winter with an excellent round of 76 off the stick and 38 points.
Runner up was Mike Smith with 37 points and 3rd place was John Laidley with 34 points. Full results below:
