On 28 August 2017, the ACGA players attended at Araluen Golf Course for the Rongqiao Cup tournament.
What a beautiful day after all the winter blues and rain we have been getting.
There were a total of 47 players pitting their skills to try and win the trophies.
The course was tough and the greens fast.
The eventual winners were:
Nearest the pin: Simon Yan and Tony Huang.
Longest drive: Martin Wong and Kitty Cai.
1st: Chen Wang playing off 45 and hitting 119 with a net score of 74.
2nd: Susan Zhang playing off 24 and scoring 102 for a net score of 78.
Mens winners :
1st: Thomas Kim playing off 22 and scoring 88 with a net score of 66.
2nd: Jackie Chen playing off 18 and scoring 91 with a net score of 72.
3rd: Henry Pua playing off 12 with a score of 85 and net 73.
The women's actually had Jiangling Tang winning at 106 and net 69 as she had a 36 handicap. However, the handicap was not verified as she does not have an official handicap. She had to be content with a bottle of wine. She graciously said that she was happy to be acknowledged that she had a good score. Good on her.
That encourages her to become an ACGA member so that she can get an official handicap.
At dinner, the ladies approached me and requested/demanded that as there are more than 10 of them playing as members, there should be prizes for 1st , 2nd and 3rd. Of course we have to oblige them. From now on ACGA will provide 3 trophies for the ladies.
We have to thank our sponsors Rongqiao and Fanson. Photos of the prizegiving dinner will be uploaded soon.
