• Annual Golf Day 2017

    2 January 2018

    The Plus 3 Lighthouse KL “Claret Jug” Golf day was held Saturday Afternoon on 30th September at the evergreen Templar Park Golf Club few kilometres just outside KL on route to Rawang and as always the Golf Club facilities were excellent with the course itself providing a great backdrop. The weather was good throughout the day with no KL afternoon showers.

    This year’s competition played the same format as last year i.e. a 2 man Better Ball Stapleford Competition over 18 holes using System 36 scoring to alleviate the “bandits”. This year’s quantum of players dropped to 40, a sign of the times with many participants of last year having departed from Malaysia and the various other events organized by other societies at the same weekend as well the F1 held in Singapore.

    The winning team score 38 points, with Second and third place 2 points further back on count backs.

    A further sign of the times was sponsorship being non-existent except for our regular sponsor – Plus Three Consultants whose name the tournament “Plus 3 Claret Jug” is given. This made the Golf Day financial not the success as it has been before.

    Winners for the day:

    Novelties:

    Nearest to pin: 2nd hole – Scott Williams
    Nearest to pin in 2 (par 4) 10th hole – Nicolas Sunderland
    Longest Drive: Martin Elton
    Nearest to the line: Paul Martin

    Competition Winners:

    1: Team: Kim chi Hag– Doug Scully and Louis Shepard
    2: Team: MKDH – Marcus Khuzaik, Dave Harmer
    3: Team: DPRG – Robert Gunnion, David Perrau

    Thanks to the Volunteers Bev Stubbs, and ladies Clarise Low, Tanya Bates and Peaw who with feminine charm sold a record amount of beer on the course and the sale of raffle ticket for without their efforts we certainly would not have broken even.
