IMG_5910

There were 10 Eggers today at Rahman Putra for our game on The Hills course. It was relatively quiet so we all got off from 2 tee boxes at just before 8:00am. Weather was good but did get rather hot near the end of the round. The course was in very good condition and the greens excellent.

We welcomed our new guest today, Martin Walsh, playing with the group for the first time, and we look forward to him joining us on a regular basis in the future.

Tasik Puteri Golf & Country Club – 13th October 2017

IMG_5807

Only 10 Eggers today for the game at Tasik Puteri. We got off sharp before 8:00am from two tee boxes on the Puteri and Putera nines, which was just as well as our 4-ball got off just prior to a 6-ball jumbo flight …. yes a 6-ball! …. each player with a buggy and a caddy it looked like the charge of the Light Brigade coming up behind us. The course was good although the greens very slow making it difficult to commit to hitting that putt quite a bit harder than normal. Weather was great, overcast and relatively cool making it a pleasant morning.

We had lunch in the club after the game washed down with a few cold beers.

Results

The winner today with a 85 for 38 points was Tom Holmes with Allan Wright runner up with 100 for 37 points. Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an 84. Full results below:

Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort – 6th October 2017

IMG_5690

Our first game of October was held at Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort, which we have never played before with the FRID’ Eggs group. I was a bit worried that the course may be wet with all the recent heavy rain but it was in fact very dry and buggies were even allowed on the fairways which speeded up play. The course was in good condition and the weather very sunny and hot. After the game we had lunch in the New O&S Restaurant in Bukit Kemuning which turned out great food. Drinks were sponsored today by Richard Rodwell who put in RM200 as he had a birthday a couple of days ago …. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Richard!

Results

Most players scored well on this course but our winner today was Erol Akinci who scored 93 for 42 points beating Ricardo Castro on count back who had shot 80 for 42. 3rd place was Stuart taylor with 86 for 38. Full results below:

Monthly Scramble – Templer Park – 29th Sep 2017

IMG_5576

We held the monthly scramble for September at the beautiful Templer Park Country Club. This month we only had 2 flights with 8 players. We teed’ off at 8:30 am under a lovely cool morning and it stayed much that way all the way round – well until the heavens opened while we were playing the last 3 holes which made it a bit of a miserable wet finish. The course, as usual, was in great condition, really is a challenging test and therefore good for the scramble format.

After the game we had lunch at the club which was good but on the expensive side.

Results

The winning team for this month’s scramble was Ricardo Castro & Barry Sage who shot a gross of 73 for 41 points. Runners up were Peter Davies and Robert Mulliss with a gross of 83 for 39 points. Full results below :

Bangi Golf Resort – 21st September 2017

IMG_5496

We had a full dozen eggs today at our weekly game at Bangi Golf Resort. It’s always good to visit this course …. it’s short, relatively easy and most players score well giving them a boost. We got off sharp at 8:00am on the Kajang and Bangi 9’s with no real hold ups and very nice cool weather. The course was in good condition and there has been extensive work done around the course with many trees now gone making it a little more open.

We had lunch post game at Restoran East of Highway which was routinely very good.

Results

As expected some very good scores today with only 3 players not breaking their handicap. The clear winner with a record breaking 48 points was Allan Wright with a gross of 90. Runner up was Tony Morris with 86 for 44 and 3rd place was Ricardo Castro with 82 (best gross of the day) for 41. Full results below:

KRTU – 17 September 2017

IMG_5390.jpg

It has been a while since we have played at KRTU so it was good to be back at this interesting course. There were 12 eggers today making for a nice 3 full flights. With the help of Zak (member at KRTU) we got off at 8:40am starting from hole no 10.

The course was in great shape and there has been a lot of renovation works done around the course particularly with the replacement of many of the old worn buggy tracks. The greens were really excellent but as usual if you strayed off the faiway you were punished.

We had a fair bit of rain as we played which slowed things up but we were all finished by 1:30pm and took lunch at the golfers terrace. Great food, cold beer and very reasonable.

Results

The winner today with an excellent 76 for 40 points was Geoff McLaws – also best gross of the day! Runner up was Stuart Taylor with 34 points. Full results below:

Rahman Putra – 8th September 2017

We had an early start at Rahman Putra this morning due to an afternoon competition. We tee’d off off on the Lakes Course at 7:30am under great conditions – great course conditions and wonderful clear weather. The Lakes Course is a tough and challenging course but great to play …… most of us struggling to play close to our handicap.

We finished by 12:30 and took lunch and many beers at the club patio restaurant. Food was good and quite reasoinable thanks to our members discount (thanks to Stan Constantinides and Tome Holmes).

Results

As mentioned earlier most players struggled to play to their handicap today …. with one exception ….. Peter Davies played a blinder coming in with 43 points …. 9 points ahead of 2nd place, Stuart Taylor with 34 points. Well done Peter!! Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an  84. Full results below:
