Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
A strong turnout for our first round in the new Eclectic series at Pondok Cabe Golf Club with 45 players joining. We had a few newcomers, or at least relative newcomers, including Andrew and Sally Deane, Riche Tiblani and Wayne Larosee. Welcome all, and good to see Bobby Cangkrama back after a long absence.
The weather was good and the course was in good condition even though there had been a fair amount of rain. Lift, clean and place on the fairways was the order of the day. The starter got us off on time and pace of play was steady with all players finishing in good time.
Meher Noronha and George Stretton showed the way when it comes to accuracy on the par 3’s by taking the Nearest to the Pin prizes. Jeremy Oberoi and Diarmuid Flanagan definitely showed us the way with the Longest Drives. Jens Roestel and Sholk Rajeev took the Drive & Pitch honours. Jeremy Oberoi certainly seemed to have his eye in on the greens becoming this week’s Putting Champion.
Newcomer Wayne Larosee didn’t go away empty handed taking both the Booby and Most Exercise prizes with very respectable scores. I wouldn’t feel too hard done by Wayne!
A crowd of players vied for the Runner Up spot but Fernando Gaggino took the honour on count back. This week’s Champion was Jens Roestel taking home the first Little Dog of this Eclectic series.
Congratulations to all of this week's winners!
