LITTLE SAI WAN GOLF SOCIETY
Welcome to Little Sai Wan Golf Society.
The Little Sai Wan Golf Society was established in 1964 and promotes good golf and good fellowship around the game. The Society plays approximately once per month, usually at the Hong Kong Golf Club facility in Fanling, and also plays occasional events against other Golf Societies plus a long standing annual fixture against the Big Sai Wan Golf Society, usually in Thailand.
The maximum handicap for member is 18, and at any one time there are usually about 70-80 members.
MOST RECENT EVENT
Another great day’s golf on the Old course. Threatened rain never happened although very humid conditions.
Two 38’s from JP and Jonny Brock but thanks to a 7 down the last, Jonny managed to pip JP on count back by producing a match-winning double bogey 6! Jonny also won the Champions Cup with his net 69.
JP’s collapse may be excused by the fact he had been also playing the match play final against Terry Wright, always an exhausting experience. He snuck the 17th with a monster putt, and then collapsed on the 18th after securing the 2&1 victory.
An outstanding performance by Raaj secured the keenest golfer award. His total of 20 stableford points saved the blushes of Rick Siemens (21), Richard Castka (22), Mark Cameron (22) Antony Michell (22), and Matt Burke the last events 40 point winner (23). Raaj spend most of his time (especially on 18) playing on the wrong golf course although having just had surgery on a damaged thumb ligament after a ski accident, perhaps has an excuse. Not so sure about the other low 20’s players!
Winner of Jens Munk & Champions Cup
