Gading reopened at the beginning of June with limited operations so we were afforded an early tee time at 11.10am but with the course being quiet, we still managed to head out ahead of this for a truly early time for most Tee Setters. A sunny day book-ended our round with a heavy down-pour soaking most players as the first groups reached the turn. Despite the enforced break for 15-20 minutes, we were still round in good time and finished in just over 4 hours.
The Gading team looked after us very well and it was a pleasure to be back. The course played well despite the heavy rains further softening the fairways and leaving a few puddles to be navigated on the lower lying areas.
A special welcome to our 2 newcomers on the day, Joseph Chan and Gaurac Shirke, we hope you enjoyed the day and to see you back soon.
Many thanks to VP Ric Wymer for managing the scoring and results presentation and photos of the day are here.
Some excellent scores, some who got full value for the day but for all, it was great to be able to capture the awards for the first time since relaunching official events. First up, the ever popular skirt photo with Timo Karonen and Marcelo de Jesus being there to enjoy the dress-up bag. Most Strokes was taken by Benedikt Blenk and whilst Elena Viktoria had a tough day on the greens, she was also recovered the fine by taking Most Improved.
First Par for Handicaps >=30 was taken by Weera Limjirakajorn, 1st Sandy by Harry Lopez, and First Birdie by James Bristow. Our master of the flat stick this week was Juju Juhaeriah.
Jeff Landau came home in 36 for a fine round of 76 gross and our Low Net winners were Ronald Lim, Miguel Veronesi and Timo Toivonen.
