Deep Water Bay Golf Club 2019
Deep Water Bay Golf Club 201919 Dec 2019
Our annual Christmas visit to Deep Water Bay is always one of the most fun events on our calendar. The course being so short makes it a fast and easy walk, and just to spice it up, players are only allowed to use 3 clubs and 1 putter.
This year, the weather was a bit chilly at around 18 degrees with slight rain. Despite such weather, several players decided it was still conditions for short sleeves and short trousers!
The first to tee off were Terry Wright, Bill King and Simon Hague. After the first few holes, Simon told me he had already had a double and triple bogey over 4 holes, a seemingly low chance to win the tournament. However, he came back on the back nine and scored 33 points total to claim the second runner up. Simon and Terry also scored a par on hole 8 to win a special prize! Congrats to the two winners.
The ladies performed exceptionally well too with good course management and precise short games. Dori Dainton, Heather Deayton and Marilou Waldie were paired together. I was right behind their flight and had a grandstand view of their terrific short games. Dori scored 34 points to claim the second place!
As for me, I was playing with Dominic Ng and Angela Koo. They had a very strategic plan for the 3 clubs challenge by using a driver on every hole!
Here is the breakdown of this event
1st place – Steve Knight 35 points
2nd place – Dori Dainton
3rd place – Simon Hague
Par 4 hole 8 – Score a par on hole 8
As usual after this event, we sat down to a great Xmas lunch in the club.
Wishing everyone has a wonderful Christmas time with their family!
