Kau Sai Chau East Course
Saturday 7th November 2020
In just our 4th match of the year, the truest test of our credentials came up against The Little Sai Wan Golf Society, the self-claimed “Best Golf Society in Hong Kong”. This annual fixture is usually played in Macau and is one of our few played in an individual Match Play format. For the first time, Kai Sai Chau’s short but tricky East Course was the venue.
LSW are led by a notorious traitor who adds an awful lot of passion to this competitive and social fixture. Some will remember that we were well beaten over the North Course last year, so what did we have to lose. The underdogs sensed an upset.
A late in the season typhoon threatened to usurp us (as did Eric who realised only when in Shatin that he was heading to Fanling and not Sai Kung, conspiracy theories abound). As we headed East, we were greeted with gorgeous weather that for sure should result in low scoring. Our team needed 6 ½ points to claw back the Cup, game on.
So, no blood spilled, the result was 6/6.
Some very close results and some great matches played in the right spirit. Golf surely the winner.
All Nearest Pins (prizes being a pint of beer) went to HKFC.
Special thanks to JP Cuvelier for the organisation and post-match speech and well done team for playing some very good golf against some big hitters.
After six years of competition, we are all square, each team having two wins, two losses and 2 draws, great stuff.
If any contest the result, please lodge your complaint at the High Court (President Trump will introduce you!)
Captain, Golf Society
