The team was introduced to GIS’ External Relationship Manager, Ms Victoria Robertson, who had dropped in at KLGCC for a publicity photo shoot with the team just before their tee-off. Everyone looked great in their new Kukri team shirts and had the nice swings and drives to go with the smart new look!
Lots of pars and bogeys this round and the 2.10pm flight were almost witness to a Hole-in-One by Terran on Hole #17!! Beautiful tee shot from off the 146m white tee straight at the pin and the ball ran up and rolled so fast following the perfect line; I was so sure it would just plop into the hole but it ran out of steam…..inches short of the hole!! Amazing…and how nice to then tap it in for a birdie! Thanks for the thrill, Terran!
Weather was just great; sunny then overcast and breezy but by 5pm the siren had sounded; no rain but just lots of lightning activity. The players sprinted back into their buggy and headed back to the Golfers Terrace. It was a 45-minute wait before the siren sounded again to resume play. By the time the last flight came in, the floodlights were already on and the players were approaching the final green in the shadows of the sunset at 7.15pm
