Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
We had a large turnout for our fourth round at Permata Sentul with 39 scorecards handed in. This was our Pot Luck Pairing day and foursomes were drawn, allowing everyone to mix up their playing partner routine and perhaps get to know other D.O.G.S. a little better.
Despite early starts on the first 3 rounds, our plan of asking everyone to turn up earlier than usual was thwarted by a full course. We ended up going off at the scheduled 12:30 slot. The upside was D.O.G.S. got to spend a little time socializing prior to teeing off.
Scott Brown joined us for his first D.O.G.S. round. He wasn't happy with his "poor" round, only shooting an 89, after an 9 month layoff. I don't think your going to find much sympathy in this group Scott but we're glad you made it out and we hope to see you back soon.
There were quite a few horror stories about the tough conditions on the course, especially the greens, but that did not affect Mark "Dirty" Johnson or Arne Tjaden who both posted 76's and 41 Stableford points! Well done gentlemen. Unfortunately for Arne he was beaten on both count-backs allowing Dirty to take home the Lowest Gross and Weekly Champion honours. Mark also grabbed Putting Champion with and incredibly low 22 putts.
Full results can be viewed on our Leaderboard page.
Congratulations to all of this week's winners!

Four rounds are complete and the competition in the Eclectic is heating up; Chris Burley has quietly ascended to the top of the dog pile and has over a point lead on the 2nd place challenger Amol Singhal. Chris only has 2 pars left to get and several players in the Top 10 still have lots of white showing on the leaderboard. It will be tough for him to hold on for 2 more weeks.
Next week is our HOGs and D.O.G.S. Day. All fines and game fees will be donated to the Star Deli 7th Annual Golf Tournament in support of Yayasan Indonesia Chapter HOG charities. We will have a donation container set out after each of our games until the tournament, allowing players who aren't able to make next week's round to drop in a donation should they wish.
If you haven't done so, make sure you sign up for the tournament soon as it is filling up.
Please join our next round.

Tee times have a been a bit difficult this tournament with the course allowing for early starts the first 3 rounds. This resulted in players turning up at the course on time and finding nobody around. This week we requested everyone to turn up early and unfortunately ended up waiting for our booked 12:30 slot. This week we are asking for players to be at the course by 11:30 ready to play. This will allow us to take advantage of an early start if available and to make sure everyone is paired up. Players turning up early should respect the tee time and wait until 11:30 to go on the course so players arriving on time aren't greeted by an empty club house.
Please sign up by noon Friday, October 12, if you intend to play.
