The anniversary tournament had a great turnout of 141 players – all were up bright and early for a 7am shot gun start. It was a glorious day with clear blue skies and a slight breeze set for ideal scoring conditions.

The décor and ambience around the club was exciting with a delicious breakfast from our very own Batten Restaurant. Ibu Linda and her team served up a great meal and did a great job decorating the place with balloons and a wonderful floral arrangement with the help of Pak Chandra and his house keeping team. The club house looked spectacular.

Upon completion of the game, many members were impressed with the condition of the course and the speed of the greens. The greens were very fast and running very true – Hats off to the Green staff of Pak Monang and Pak Ujang and their team for doing such an excellent job in preparing the course in fantastic condition. Also thanks to Pak Ob Endang and his team for keeping the pace of play moving with a field at maximum capacity; helping players’ finish18 holes of play in 5 hours was a very impressive task!

The afternoon ceremony started with an opening speech from Pak Daya, who spoke about building on a very successful club and Jagorawi doing its best to ensure that members are happy with the course and facilities. For the candle blowing of the cake, it felt special to have Ibu Zakir join to celebrate our 39th Anniversary. A special thanks to Colette and Lola for the wonderful cake.

There were many trophies categories and presentations, which made for an exciting and cheerful celebration. Well done to all the winners as the field was filled with a lot of talent for these big achievements. Let’s recognize these players:

The presentations ended with lucky draw prizes; thanks to our sponsors at Samsung and Club Med. Samsung supplied us with some great gadgets including the latest S9 hand phones and Club Med supplied us with a 4 day and 3 night trip to Tomanu in Japan. The Winner of the Club Med prize went to Mr David, a member’s guest of Pak Alwi. Fortunately for Mr David he was still in the club house so was able to collect his prize.

We really appreciate everyone coming and participating in the great 39th Anniversary event! Our next member’s guest event will be the Zakir Cup played on the old course on the July 22nd, which was moved forward from July 29th.
