Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!
50 players turned up for our 3rd round excited to chase the elusive improvements and be positioned well for the second half of this tournament. Everything was looking great with the course getting us started early. Alas, not long after play was underway the rains came. Never enough to make players quit but just the right amount to slowly soak you to the skin. The round was played under bouts of softly falling rain and sun shining. Nonetheless everyone played on and completed their rounds in relatively short time.
Welcome to Dennis Faxholm, Jonathan Soew and Reza Arafat who came out for their first round. Thank you for joining and we are looking forward to seeing more of you gents.
Last tournament the bridges of Riverside were the subject of many photos; this tournament it looks to be "What is Tim Knight wearing today?"
I think we can all agree this is an improvement (albeit slight) over last week's attire.
Gary Danskin had his usual good round taking a Drive & Pitch and Lowest Gross with a 76. Robson Drummond posted 41 points but lost in a count back to Shashvat Pandey for Weekly Champion. Well done Shashvat!
Congratulations to all of this week's winners!
Full Lowest Gross and Eclectic standings can be viewed on our Leaderboard page.
We are past the halfway point now and the race for the Big Dog gets serious. There are also 3 Little Dogs up for grab. Get in on the action and sign up to play.

The Rules and what it means when we play.
Abnormal Course Conditions (including Immovable obstructions) – Free Relief – Rule 16
The purpose is to show by illustration (thanks to own professional golfer Hana Ariestya) how to correctly take free relief from an immovable obstruction.
Interference from animal holes, ground under repair, immovable obstructions or temporary water are collectively called abnormal course conditions therefore free relief procedure is the same for all of these conditions.
A few general remarks:
When taking free relief you can either use the ball you were playing with or interchange it with another ball.
Relief for abnormal course conditions is not available in Penalty areas. You can only take penalty relief in terms of Rule 17.
When your ball is in the General Area your relief is in the General Area (there is no differentiation between what was previously called rough and fairways).
In Bunkers free relief is only available inside the Bunker, but there is an option to take relief outside the bunker but with one penalty stroke
Remember free relief is determined from the nearest point, not the nicest point.
