TO THE DAY AT HAND ….
From a handful of golfing friends in December of 2019 playing with a first formal game in Feb 2020 at Matoa to a thriving golf society of 240+ members….
JAWS Golf Society is heading onwards and upwards as we hosted our 1st Anniversary Tournament at Emeralda Golf Club on Friday 26th, 2021 for a noon tee off with a good spread of JAWS players, guests and friends, all of 124 players to enjoy a close course event on Emeralda’s majestic River and Lake Arnold Palmer designed layouts.
The event got off to a good start with the Putting Challenge on the putting green at 10:00am sponsored and operated by Leonian Golf Indonesia, who also had the latest range of Odyssey putters on display for players to try and use during the competition.
Three holes were plotted on the large putting area and each participant played three holes in sequence for the minimum amount of putting strokes.
Out of around 30 participants: 4 players topped the scoring with 5 putts in total: Emil Marcelo, Simon Reynolds, Giles Taarland and Adrian Sughandi.
In the end winning both his playoff sudden death, head to head putts was Adrian Sughandi who took home a brand new Odyseey putter as the winner’s prize.
With a large group of 124 pax onsite the committee was keen to keep the event running on time, so after the group photo in front of the clubhouse and the confirmation of rules and regulations for the day players proceeded to their golf carts and dispersed towards their allotted holes ready for the 12:15pm shotgun start.
There was some slight concern as light rainfall threatened to spoil the mood before tee off but the powers of West Java’s mystical Pawang Hujan repelled all raindrops and grey clouds and sun shine and blue skies lit up the golf course for the whole afternoon of golfing and fun under the sun with complimentary beers on ice sponsored by San Miguel at the halfway house’s.
The hot afternoon sun and excellent course conditions provided perfect playing conditions and perhaps the feel-good atmosphere on the day inspired several players.
Some of the JAWS Great White Sharks put together some low nett and competitive numbers, but it was the guests and friends who posted the hottest scores winning both Best Nett Categories A & B albeit one Shark Wakit and a stellar Gross 75 posted to secure Best Gross Overall.
The windy conditions and damp fairways put the brakes on the longest drive numbers with knocks of 250m long enough to grab these skills prizes, but the talk of the evening was the Nearest to the Pin on Hole#4 River being won by a Hole in One by Azmi Bagindo!
A film of the day
