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

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

So we came to our first round of the new Eclectic at the popular Imperial Klub Golf with 38 players making the trip to Karawaci. The weather forecast was showing we might get some rain - and we did! We got off to a good start with the usual shotgun on time and play was progressing well for 7 holes or so - and then the storm came. No thunder and lightning but plenty of rain which stopped proceedings for 30 minutes or so. We got back underway on a rather wet course, but everyone finished in reasonable time.


Some newcomers this week - a big welcome to Mick Hassett, Rajat Dutt, TF Lee and Victor Bosch. Also some faces we haven't seen for a while - welcome back John Gustke, Dewi Wardoyo, Bilal Aleem, Christian Berkenhoff and Shivashish Pandey - good to see all of you back.


To the play: Many countries in the winning this week - France, Germany, Italy, USA, England, Scotland, Hawaii (technically USA) and Indonesia - just goes to show the true cosmopolitan make-up of the D.O.G.S. So, Nic Verdenal and Ash Hewitt took the Nearest to the Pin prizes, John Gustke announced his return from the US by winning one of the Longest Drive prizes, the other going to Gracie Prangel. Nic was in the prizes again taking one of the Drive & Pitch prizes, the other going to Alberto Gonzales. Roger Finnie had his flat stick working well - or he missed a lot of greens - becoming this week's Putting Champion. Dewi Wardoyo announced her comeback by having a tough day at the office taking both the Cricket Bat and the Most Exercise Trophy home - you'll soon get back into the rhythm again!


Richard Mau showed he knows his home course well by taking the Lowest Gross but he had to settle for the Runner Up prize as Agnes Berkenhoff, clearly happy to see hubby back playing with us, as she took the Little Dog home becoming this week's Champion.





A big congratulations to all our winners this week!


So, with this being only the first round of the Eclectic Series, nothing much to report with Richard Mau taking the home course lead to the top - but a lot more golf to come for sure! Full results can be seen on the Leaderboard page or in the myGolf2u app as usual.


On Sunday our Inter-league team was in action at Jagorawi. Perhaps a little tired from the slog through the rain Saturday the fell to Pocksia 3 - 7.
