Our first MCS golf tournament was held on September 11, 2005, at Maples of Ballantrae Golf Course. We were blessed with excellent weather on that day - bright sunshine, clear skies and a light breeze, everything perfect for a round of golf.
There were 28 golfers, with a good mix of men and women. Everyone arrived the golf course early. Some visited the driving range whilst others practiced their putting on the putting green. Although the golfers were of different playing ability, everyone enjoyed the day.
Dinner and prize presentation was held in the evening at Golden Regency Restaurant in Markham (see separate report on Mahjong and dinner) . Prizes were awarded to the following :

Longest Drive, Men’s : Ryan O’Connor
Longest Drive, Women’s : Lulu Yui
Closest to the Pin (hole #6) : Peter Beca
Closest to the Pin (hole # 14) : Kathy King
Low-Scramble Team : Peter Yeung, Patrick Lai, Edgar Pang and Eric Chan
Most Honest Team : Lulu Yui, Michael Pun, Helena O’Connor and Joyce Li

There was also lucky draw for all golfers where everyone received some golf related prizes. We would like to thank the committee members who donated the prizes and special thanks to Mr. Tommy Tam (CGTF), who donated golf lessons to ‘winners’ of the Most Honest Team. We welcome more to join us in our next golf tournament.
