D.O.G.S. First Round at Rancamaya Golf & Country Club

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

So, we came to our regular venue for Ramadhan, Rancamaya Golf & Country Club. A great turnout of 54 players made the journey all the way down the Jagorawi Toll with blue skies all the way - and yes, the photo of Gunung Salak was taken at around 10am but unfortunately the skies clouded over by the time we started.

Some newcomers and visitors from afar this week, so a big welcome to Allan Coll - an old Dog from many years ago making a visit to play with us again, Channe Gabrielle and Wahyu Bauer from the Max and Sri clan, Zebedee Tay and a few faces we haven't seen for a while, Terence Martin, Srinivas Murthy, Ed Bender, TPS - having recovered from his wedding!, Sepand Zarrabi, Marc Miller, Andy Mackin, Jeff Durham and Bobby Cangkrama - hope we can see you all more often please.

Well, play got off on time with a semi shotgun start but the rains came after only a few holes. Fortunately, the stoppage was for only 30 minutes or so and we all resumed play with everyone finishing in good time. The course was in excellent condition with the greens being a little slower due to the damp conditions. Apologies about the scorecard errors but as pretty much all of you enter your cores into myGolf2u through the assigned scorer, no harm done. We will have to live with these scorecards for a few weeks so please continue to mark down your gross score and putts - thanks!

NOTE: Next week we will start at 11:30am.

A good spread of winners this week which is always what we like to see. Claudio Ghelli and Nanin Provance showed their accuracy off the tee taking the Nearest to the Pin prizes as were Srinivas Murthy and Holger Molendyk with their approach shots taking the Drive & Pitch prizes.

Divya Ahuja took one of the Longest Drive prizes whilst Channe Gabrielle showed that you don't have to be big and powerful to hit a long way taking the other Longest Drive honour.

Ash Hewitt managed to gauge the green speeds taking this week's Putting Champion prize, whereas Detlef Blumke enjoyed his afternoon in the Gunung Salak foothills taking both the Booby and Most Exercise Trophies - he had decided to depart before he had received his spoils but we'll keep them for you until next week!

Bobby Cangkrama has a habit of walking away with some prize or other and this time was no exception as he was this week's Runner Up. Terence Martin seems to like Rancamaya as he won not only the Lowest Gross but the Little Dog - his 4th at Rancamaya - becoming this week's Champion.

A big congratulations to all this week's winners!
