D.O.G.S. First Round at Imperial Klub Golf

Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!

So after 8 years we ventured back to Imperial Klub Golf as can be seen from the Sunset Bar - at least when someone's not standing in the way! There was some reference to "My heart will go on" to this photo and given the rain we had during the round a rather apt comment - however JB is not standing on Sarah's shoulders!

Here's the uninterrupted view. So we had a total of 39 players for our first round including newcomers Angel Barcena and welcome back to Alberto Gonzales, Jim Korbilas and Carol Lindsay whom we haven't seen for a while - welcome and welcome back and hope we see you much more often.

On a sadder note, we said goodbye - or should it be "au revoir" to Koko and Honey who are moving to Malaysia. You will be sorely missed not only each week but as valued members of our Interleague Team.

The club gave us a semi shotgun start so everyone got off in good time. The rain threatened and threatened and eventually came pretty much flooding the course and causing a delay of around 1 hour mid-round. Not to worry, thanks to the shotgun, everyone got going again once the storm cleared and the course drained very quickly resulting in everyone finishing in reasonably good time.

Now to the play: Eric Mary and Avnish Patankar showed us the accuracy of their tee shots by taking the Nearest to the Pin prizes whilst Jim Korbilas and David Moore showed us similar accuracy with their approach shots taking the Drive & Pitch honours.

Jeremy Oberoi and Holger Molendyk managed to take the Longest Drive prizes. It was apparently the first Longest drive for Holger for some 5 years - well done Holger - looking forward to the next one without their cart path assist!

A special mention to Terence Martin who managed to Eagle the 11th hole - no mean feat! - our third Eagle of the year, the other two both going to TPS at Pondok Cabe and Rainbow Hills.

Carol Lindsay and Steve Lowry had slightly longer days than the rest of the field taking this week's Booby and Most Exercise prizes - at least it's a prize!
