The Inaugural Aus Chinese Golf Association Tan and Tan Lawyers Cup

Dear Readers

The weekend saw the completion of the Inaugural Aus Chinese Golf Association  Tan and Tan Lawyers Cup.

Photos for the event are still being uploaded.

The event took place on a sunny day at the beautiful Burswood Park Golf Course on 17 March 2013.

There were 23 players who pitted their skills against each other.

Players without an official Golf Link card played off an 18 handicap.

I had just received my Golf link handicap after joining the Melville Glades Golf Club. It is a difficult and narrow course and I have yet to break 100 there after playing 3 games to get my handicap card. I was given a 26 handicap .

Was it a good thing that I got a 26 official handicap just before this tournament? I suppose it was as I managed to come in Nett 1st.

More details will be provided later with photos of the day.

The winners were:

Nearest the Pin:  Gary Li.
Nearest the Pin: LC Huang.
Longest drive: TK Loi

Gross 1st: Jason Ng
Gross 2nd: TK Loi
Gross 3rd: Henry Pua

Net 1st: Raymond Tan
Net 2nd H S Huang
Net 3rd Y. Li

Gross and net overall champion: Ricky Ren

We had a great dinner at Xintiandi in the night. Most of the players brought their family which is good for family relationships.

We were lucky to have Dan Zhou, Peter Wang and Wei Jiang Dong take all the great photos and videos for the competition. They own the copyright.

As the trophies were specially ordered from Sydney, they took longer than expected to arrive. They did arrive 1 day after the comp and we had a prizegiving ceremony at the Terrace Rd offices of Tan and Tan Lawyers.

First competition for the Chinese New Year

Dear readers

The Aus Chinese Golf Association is organising a golf competition that will take place this Sunday on 17 March 2013.

The venue is at Burswood Park Golf Course. As many of you will be aware, Burswood Park Golf Course will be closing down for good in mid April 2013. It continues to be one of the most beautiful golf course in Perth and many golfers will feel saddened when it is finally closed.

Well, this is your last chance to take part in a corporate event hosted by the Burswood Park Golf course management and staff.

The competition is partly sponsored by Mozart Cafe, Tan and Tan Lawyers and P and P Distributors Pty Ltd.

Other sponsors include:

Fada Print, Xintiandi Restaurant, GC Stone,  Australian Photographic Asso, Evernature and  FM 104.9.

It promises to be an exciting day and will be followed  by prize giving at a dinner to be held at Xintiandi Restaurant in Northbridge.

Players without an official handicap will be playing off a handicap of 18.

Hole No.11 Par 3

If you want to take part in the competition, please telephone Sheng at 0416 189 187 or Raymond Tan at 0419 929228 to make your booking.

Play is open to members and non members of this new vibrant association.
