It is with great sadness we must inform everyone that we lost our good friend and Founder Gottfried "Fritz" Hainzl in the early hours of Saturday morning. Fritz was planning to join us for our round on the 4th but unfortunately it was not meant to be. He will be greatly missed.
Willi Goldschmidt is arranging a small gathering to remember Fritz this Thursday, November 8, 19:00 at Plan B, (Spanish Resto) in Patal Senayan.
It was his favourite place after a Round of Golf in Senayan, especially the sangria, so it would be the right place to raise a glass sangria and remember him. If you would like to attend please let us know via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hail The D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
It has been a busy weekend for the D.O.G.S. with many of us playing in the Star Deli/YHOG Tournament on Saturday at Matoa then turning up again for our scheduled round on Sunday. We are proud to announce that the contributions from D.O.G.S. were 12,365,000 IDR. Thank you all for your generous donations!
21 participants turned up for our round and were rewarded with an early start; first groups were teeing off at 11:00. Rainfall that had chased us off the course on Saturday left us dealing with high humidity Sunday but did not slow the pace of play. All players were able to finish play without rain and enjoy sipping cool beverages, after showering, in the club house by 16:00.
We had 3 double winners on the day; Mark Johnson took a Nearest to Pin and Putting Champion. Tahir Chaudhry won Longest Drive and 1st Runner Up. Gary Mond grabbed the coveted Bobby Prize and Most Exercise. Tim Knight struggled a bit but his 82 was enough for the Lowest Gross. Weekly Champion was Tony Anson with 42 points.
Congratulations to all of this week's winners! Full results are posted on our Leaderboard page.
Next week we will be at the half way point of this year's final D.O.G.S. tournament. Don't wait to come out and join us; sign up now.

A recent study found that the average golfer walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found golfers drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year, which means, on average, golfers get about 41 miles to the gallon.
Kind of makes you proud. I almost feel like a hybrid.
A husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack.
”Help me dear," she groans to her husband.
The husband calls 911 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt.
His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him. "I'm dying here and you're putting."
"Don't worry dear," says the husband calmly, "they found a doctor on the second hole and he's coming to help you."
"Well, how long will it take for him to get here?" she asks feebly.
"No time at all," says her husband. "Everybody's already agreed to let him play through.”
A gushy reporter told Phil Mickelson, "You are spectacular, your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. What's your secret?"
Mickelson replied, ”The holes are numbered."
A young man and a priest are playing together. At a short par-3 the priest asks, "What are you going to use on this hole, my son?"
The young man says, "An 8-iron, father, how about you?"
The priest says, "I'm going to hit a soft seven and pray."
The young man hits his 8-iron and puts the ball on the green.
The priest tops his 7-iron and dribbles the ball out a few yards.
The young man says, "I don't know about you, father, but in my church, when we pray, we keep our head down.”
Police are called to an apartment and find a woman holding a bloody 3-iron standing over a lifeless man.
The detective asks, "Ma'am, is that your husband?"
"Yes" says the woman.
"Did you hit him with that golf club?"
"Yes, yes, I did." The woman begins to sob, drops the club and puts her hands on her face.
"How many times did you hit him?"
”I don't know -- put me down for a five."
A golfer teed up his ball on the first tee, took a mighty swing and hit his ball into a clump of trees. He found his ball and saw an opening between two trees he thought he could hit through.
Taking out his 3-wood, he took a mighty swing. The ball hit a tree, bounced back, hit him in the forehead and killed him.
As he approached the gates of Heaven, St. Peter asked, "Are you a good golfer?"
The man replied: ”Got here in two, didn't I?
The bride was escorted down the aisle and when she reached the altar, the groom was standing there with his golf bag and clubs at his side.
She said: "What are your golf clubs doing here?"
He looked her right in the eye and said, "This isn't going to take all day, is it?"
