First Day of Hari Raya Puasa 2007

Royal Kampung Kuantan Golf was established in 1910 by the "Ang Mor" mostly British planters and this is one of the oldest golf courses in Selangor located between Ijok and Kuala Selangor. About 60km from Kuala Lumpur. You can find huge trees like this which is the main characteristic of this golf course. The course is a flat course but with these mature trees in play, the course can be tricky and interesting. It is a walking course with services of local caddies (all Indian) and lots of them.

Enjoy the old architectural features of the club house. The caterer of a old couple (granny & grandpa) whom could provide us with good lunch after the 18 holes walk. The foods were fanastastic, we had fried kampong chicken, fried kambong fish, lots of curry crabs (main course), veges, eggs. And of course lots of Carlsberg beer and couple bottles of whiskey.

This outing is organised by Citizen Nades of the Sun newspaper, all together we have 14 golfers. He will be writing about his round of golf with three CEO in Kg Kuantan. They were CC Ng from Tai Thong, Boon from KBB One and Chin from Carlsberg. Watch out in the coming issue of the Edge.

My flight mates were Nicholas Leong and young man Teng. Other friends in this outing were Francis Yeoh, his wife Cheng, Neil Watts (suspended member of this club, an "ang mor"), Raj (the Sun Photogapher), and the others.
We also met friends from RSC there. Ex-Commander Karu, Mr. Soon and other former officers from the Navy.
