Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
Thirty-four golfers turned up for our final round at Riverside to make their final run at the Big Dog. Players were at the course early and ready to go so when the starter began allowing groups to head out there was no delay. As with each of the previous weeks the pace was quick and players got around near the 4 hour mark.
Welcome to Keisuke Ito, Carol Lindsay and Jim Korbilas, we hope you enjoyed the day and will be back again. Ito played his first round with the D.O.G.S., unfortunately there was a mixup with his scoring so didn't post a score. For Jim and Carol, this is actually their second round, their first day was the D.O.G.S./Tee Set match and barbecue. In all the excitement their cards weren't turned in so we missed the welcome. Scorecard issues aside we are glad you all turned up.
Newcomers Carol and Ito did not wait long to win something with both getting prizes; Ito for Drive & Pitch and Carol Most Exercise. John Brown was a double winner with the other Drive & Pitch and the coveted Booby Prize. Roger Finnie posted his 4th sub 80 round of the tournament to take the Lowest Gross and Kathy Scalabre represented the Lady Dogs well with a huge hit on 18 to take Longest Drive. Indar Dhaliwal was the other Longest Drive winner but his 40 Stableford points were enough to win him the Little Dog as our Weekly Champion.
This week being our final round the Big Dog was at the course and players were looking to get enough improvements to take him home. The Lowest Gross was also to be decided. Douglas McQuater brought along another of Jari Rahtu's private stash and members were able to enjoy a sip of some fine Estonian Vodka while results were being compiled.
In the Lowest Gross competition Roger Finnie had played well all tournament; his 79 allowed him to finish with an average score of 77.75 to easily win and become Lowest Gross Champion.
Once again the Eclectic was very competitive with the lead changing every week; 3 of the top 4 players were in 1st place at least once going into the final. As the top four players in the Eclectic Steven Xie, Douglas McQuater, Eric Mary and Jens Roestel teed off together in the first group to battle for the Big Dog. At the end of the round the same 4 players were still in the top 4 but their positioning had changed.
Previous Champion Douglas McQuater is our 3rd Place (or as Craig Edwards likes to say "2nd Runner Up") Winner. Steven Xie played well the entire tournament while chasing both the Lowest Gross and Eclectic and is the Eclectic Runner Up
The Djakarta Old Golf Society is proud to present our Riverside 2020 Eclectic Champion Eric Mary!
Congratulations to all of our winners! Full results can be viewed on our Leaderboard.

As we need time to arrange groups and be prepared for the possibility of an early start we request players are at the course 1 hour early.
There are several ways to register:
If you are delayed please let us know and we will make arrangements for when you arrive at the course. Similarly, please let us know if you decide not to play.
Forgot to sign up or made a last minute decision to play? No problem, last minute guests are always welcome but please WhatsApp us and let us know you are on the way.
Each player is responsible for their own safety and is expected form their own judgement as to whether or not they are comfortable to join.
There is adequate information available publicly to inform players of the risks of playing and what steps can be taken to protect oneself and playing partners.
When filling out scorecards players are asked to write down their actual score on the card and not their score in relation to par, to their handicap or any other format. This makes it much easier for the committee. If you are unsure what to do and need some help please ask.
