A very large group of 55 payers turned up for our 4th round at Permata Sentul. The course itself was also quite busy as they were fully booked in the morning and had a small tournament running concurrently with the D.O.G.S. Despite all this they had us out on the tee boxes a bit ahead of our scheduled tee time.
While not a fast round the pace plodded along steadily with only a few delays. There was a 5 ball on the course who refused the marshal's requests to break up; we have found out that they have all received letters and are no longer welcome at the course.
The weather and darkness cooperated with us allowing everyone to finish their round dry.
Welcome to Harry Taufiq, Joshua Panggabean, Aldi Aja, Wakit Zaenuri, Oya Oya and Ronnie Knowles who played their first rounds with the D.O.G.S. Randy Albert joined last week with JAWS and liked it so much he came back. After a very long hiatus we are happy to see Tony Wood coming out for a round. We hope you all enjoyed the day and will be back soon.
The weekly prizes were spread around with Juju Juhaeriah & Aldi Aja taking Nearest to Pins, Katsuaki Takahashi & Sarah Brown showing off their muscles for Longest Drives and Axel Hertzke & Craig Edwards showing a deft touch on the par 3's winning the Closest to Pin awards.
Timo Karonen displayed great putting skills winning Putting Champion while fellow Fin Jari Antikainen won the Booby Prize. Risa Tirtayasa got to see plenty of the course shooting a 119 to win Most Exercise. Gary Danskin "struggled" on the links and had to settle for a 76 and Lowest Gross. Octa Abram was feeling quite good about her 41 Stableford points until she found out they were only enough for Runner Up to Weekly Champion Andy Coop's 43.
While he didn't win any prizes Dave Prosser must be quite pleased with himself for getting an eagle on 18.
As always upon reaching week 4 the race for the Big Dog begins to take shape. There are less than 3 points separating Gary Danskin in 1st and Dave Prosser in 10th Place. The 8 players in between, which includes 4 former Champions, all have the potential to get to the front. There are also lots of improvements to be had for many other players who could jump right into the mix. Due to the rain last week we'll need 1 more week to see how the Lowest Gross will look.
Only 2 weeks left at this course; Come join us for our penultimate round.
Where: Permata Sentul Golf Club
When: Saturday, September 19, 2020
Tee Off: 12:30
Green Fee + Golf Cart: 750.000 IDR/person
As we need time to arrange groups and be prepared for the possibility of an early start we request players are at the course 1 hour early.
We had many players turning up after 12:00 last week which created quite a bit of confusion trying to fit people into groups while everyone was headed to the tee boxes. By arriving early we are able to avoid this.
