D.O.G.S. First Round at Rainbow Hills Golf Club

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

A very packed course greeted the D.O.G.S. upon arrival at the venue. Despite this players were in good humour waiting for our tee time in the outdoor restaurant area. At 12:00 players began heading off to the Stone Hills and Forest tee boxes. Players on the Stone Hills got underway without delay but the Forest guys had to wait a little bit. While the pace of play wasn't the fastest we've seen we were able to move continuously around the course with only minor waiting periods. A late afternoon shower had everyone worried whether they would finish or not. Once the rain ended we were back at play and all 46 players got in just ahead of darkness.

Welcome to Rianto "Ian" Zubir and Ashadi Waclik who both joined us for their first D.O.G.S. round. Thank you for coming out gents and don't be strangers.

We received an unconfirmed report of one of our players throwing a club with enough force to break it. We have previously made our position on this clear, which can be found here, this is not acceptable. As no one has stepped forward confirming this we can hope it is just a rumour. However, if it was done the guilty party knows who they are. Please consider the rest of us and how your actions reflect not only on yourself but also on the rest of the D.O.G.S. We want all members to enjoy their day and for us to be welcome back anywhere we play. Angry club throwing doesn't help this. Tennis is a good way to spend afternoons for players that find golf makes them so angry they have to break equipment.

For the players who kept their golf clubs in their hands good scores were to be had; Tim Knight and Ian Pemberton both carded eagles; Tim on his way to a 74 to go along with the another sub 80 player Gary Danskin who shot 77. Dave Keddington was right there with an 80. Five players got over 40 or more Stableford points. Not bad for such a tough course.

The ladies were showing off their muscles on the course winning both Longest Drives with Sarah Brown taking Forest and Juju Juhaeriah Stone Hills. Juju also was Putting Champion with 25 and had aspirations of hoisting the Little Dog based on her 41 Stableford points. Unfortunately her hopes were dashed as that was only good enough for a tie for 3rd. Tribhuvan "TPS" Singh grabbed both Drive & Pitches, Maria Fongki won Nearest to Pin on Stone Hills while Srinivas Murthy took it on Forest.

Last week we all got to witness one of the most excited winners of the Big Dog ever when Michael Mueller won; this week we all got to watch Michael make the long walk up to collect his Booby Prize 😂. Newcomer Ashadi Waclik was the winner of Most Exercise.

As mentioned Tim Knight had a great round taking the Lowest Gross but his 42 Stableford points were only enough for Runner Up. This week's Champion with 48 points is Octa Abram. Well done Octa!

Congratulations to all of our winners! As always full results are posted on our Leaderboard.

This week was the first time at Rainbow for some of the newer Dogs and they were very complimentary of what a nice course this is. With 1 round in the books we are already counting down the number of games left here. Don't miss your chance to play; come out and join us for a round at this great venue.
