Fri 23rd Oct – King Naga
Our scheduled game was to be at Emerald but we found out by rumor that it had been canceled without notice as there was a major competition being played, so we hastily rearranged a game at King Naga. One would have expected that the least the club could do was to notify us. One has to ask when is a booking not a booking?
On our last visit to King Naga, we found the course in decent condition so our expectation was that it would be the same today, not so. The greens were like putting on velcro, unbelievably slow, the rest of the course was as expected.
Two time winner – Jimmy Carr
After three weeks of grey overcast conditions, we finally got some sunshine, hopefully, we are now out of the rainy season.
Jimmy Carr carried forth the good form he showed at Kabin Buri taking first place with thirty-six points, not sure what he is doing on a twenty handicap. Second went to another high handicapper in Bob Paine on thirty-five points with Michael Brett bringing up the rear with thirty-two.
1st Jimmy Carr (20) 36 points
2nd Bob Paine (23) 35 points
3rd Michael Brett (15) 32 points
