Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
So we came to our final round of the Rainbow Hills Eclectic Series with a total of 41 players making the final trip up the hill, at least for now, to battle with the Forest and Stone courses.
Some newcomers this week with a big welcome to Dean Merrilees and his wife Siti Fatimah as well as Han Peng Chng. A great welcome back after 6 years to an old D.O.G.S. stalwart, Frank Musgrove and his partner Lia. Good to see all of you, old and new!
Another busy day at the course but we managed to get off just about on time. Play wasn't as fast as we may have liked due to some non-D.O.G.S. on the course and the threat of rain - which eventually came - meant that not all groups finished - fortunately just the last hole or two were missed - unfortunate, but we can't control the weather or how busy the course is in the morning. Just to remind you all again please - if you don't finish then you should put an "X" down for that hole on your scorecard and leave mygolf2u blank. Please check out the rules on our Rules page.
So, now to the play:
Well the ladies were on form again this week with Reysia Moore and Stephanie Rina taking the Longest Drive prizes. The boys, however, showed their accuracy with Indar Dhaliwal and Vijay Sarashetti taking the Nearest to the Pin honours and Axel Hertzke and Jeremy Oberoi winning the Drive & Pitch prizes. Dougie McQuater showed us how to putt becoming this week's Putting Champion but Ralph Duckworth had a long day winning both the Booby and Most Exercise honours - and that was after he negotiated a really good deal for some balls on the 7th tee but promptly managed to lose most of them during the rest of his round!!!
James Bristow took the Lowest Gross this week. Rod Williams had a good day managing this week's Runner Up prize which left our President John Brown taking the Little Dog home - where it was in the first place - becoming our final Weekly Champion for this series.
Congratulations to all our winners this week.
So we come to the BIG DOG. Well Jeremy Oberoi managed to hold off all challengers taking his second Blue Jacket and Big Dog.
Richard Mau took the Lowest Gross Champion trophy.
Congratulations to all the top ten winners.
The full standings can be seen through the links on our Leaderboard page or in the mygolf2u app.
There was also one match play this week towards the President's Challenge: Sarah Brown defeated Dave Keddington 4 & 3.
Our Charity this series was the Yaysan Al Hijrah, an orphanage near Bogor and you donated 7,683,000 IDR over the 6 weeks to a very worthy cause. Thanks to everyone!
