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

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

The D.O.G.S. clearly enjoy playing this course as evidenced by the 52 players coming out for a hit. With the course being less crowded than previous weeks we were allowed to start teeing off well ahead of schedule. Once again the weather was on our side with cool skies and no rain allowing everyone to enjoy a great day of golf.

Welcome to Imelda Legita who played her first D.O.G.S. round. Thank you for coming out we hope to see you back again.

Following the round Sarah Brown produced a bottle of wine to toast Pirena Tioanda and Juju Juhaeriah who both were celebrating their birthdays and for Mahmood Al-Bayati who had his the day before.

Prior to our awards Gary Danskin made the draw for his raffle of golf vouchers for Bali National. The lucky winner was Graham McBain. As advertised 50% of the proceeds were donated to the D.O.G.S. charity bucket. A big THANK YOU to Gary for the donation of 2.3M IDR.

Moving onto the golf prizes; Juju Juhaeriah and Axel Hertzke won the Nearest to Pins while Craig Edwards and Ito Keisuke each grabbed a Drive & Pitch.

Once again the men were shut out of the Longest Drive as Sarah Brown and Risa Tirtayasa each took one. Risa also won Most Exercise.

Andy Abram and Dave Keddington had to leave early and thus missed picking up their prizes; Andy the Booby Prize and Dave Putting Champion

Lowest Gross for the day went to Andy Coop for his 75. For those paying attention that's 3 straight weeks with the Lowest Gross in the 70's and from 3 different players.

After some recent struggles Jari Antikainen found some of his old game and put up 43 Stableford points, sadly only enough for Runner Up.

Congratulations to Andy Coop whose 45 points made him our Weekly Champion.

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

This week's discussion is about penalty areas courtesy of our rules guru Mark Johnson.

Red stakes and Yellow staked areas are now known as penalty areas. If your ball goes into a penalty you always have the option of playing it as it from the penalty area but if you are not able to here are your options.

If your ball goes into a red staked penalty area you have 3 options.

  1. Stroke and distance. Take a 1 stroke penalty and play the ball from where you hit your last shot.

  2. Back on the line relief. Take a 1 stroke penalty and, from the point where your ball entered the penalty area, go back as far as you wish while maintaining a straight line to the hole go back as far as you wish.

  3. Lateral Relief. From where your ball crossed into the penalty area you may drop within 2 club lengths but no closer to the hole.

Should your ball go over a penalty area then roll, bounce or by some other method go back in, you may only drop on the other side if it is within 2 club lengths of where it entered and no closer to the hole.

Yellow staked Penalty areas offer 2 options.
