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!

Results

Our winner today and December Trophy winner, having held back all year, was Roger McGowan with an excellent 96 for 42 points.

Results – Staffield Country Resort – 29th March 2016

IMG_7765

The Monthly Trophy Game for March was played at Staffield Country Resort – one of our favourite and reliable courses in the region. We had a full complement of 24 players with 6 flights teeing off on separate tee boxes on the Northern and Western 9’s. Weather conditions were hot but with a lovely breeze blowing this cooled things down considerably and we actually came off after 18 holes with dry shirts. Course conditions were very good and we all made good time around the course particularly as it was buggy on course. After the game we had lunch and prize giving at the club – many thanks to Peter May who donated RM100 to the kitty for lunch.

Results

Some good scores today which is expected at this course. The winner of the March monthly trophy was Bernard Romahn with an 81 for 43 points ocb from runner up Mahmud Mohamed with 85 for 43. 3rd place was Geoff McLaws with best gross of the day 77 for 42 points. 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:
