NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2012 Vietnamese
Dear Golfers,

Well this year’s rainy season is upon us and golfers are reaching for their rain suits and umbrellas. Although the course may be deluged with rainfall at times, the sand base allows for fast drainage and a playable course within minutes so don’t let the rain hamper your plans to come out to Danang Golf Club for a game with friends.

This past month Danang Golf Club hosted the Danang Businessman’s Association Tournament on September 14th with over 40 prominent businessmen from Danang competing in the friendly golfing event. Thank you to the association for a great event and we look forward to hosting again next year.

Also in September was the Monthly Medal, hosted on Saturday 22nd with more than 60 golfers taking part. Golfers were greeted with a beautiful sunny day with perfect golfing conditions. The eventual winner was Mr. Le Hong Minh who won the best gross with a fine score of 78. Other divisional winners were Mr. Ton Duc Sau, Ms. Mai Thi Ly, Mr. Nguyen Huu Thuong and Mr. Vo Ngoc Thuan.

Thank you once again to all the members and guests whom supported this event and we look forward to seeing you on October 27th for the next Monthly Medal. Click here for more information and make reservation

Danang Golf Club has recently signed a reciprocal agreement with Keppel Golf Club (www.keppelclub.com.sg) in Singapore. Keppel Club is a beautiful golf course conveniently located only minutes from the City and Sentosa Island. Keppel Club is a golfer’s sanctuary. Bordered by Singapore’s southern shoreline, the Keppel Club as know today enjoys 44 hectares of lush undulating terrain, but it was not always like this. In the 1830s, the Straits Settlements (Singapore, Malacca and Penang) was a pirates’ haven. By 1832, Singapore had become the busy centre of government for the three areas. It was also at this time that Admiral Keppel came to Singapore. This famous British sailor helped to clear the Straits of pirates. The harbour was thus named after him. Keppel Golf Club, as it was originally known, was founded on November 15, 1904. The Club sat on a piece of land first owned by the New Dock Co. Ltd. When the land was transferred to the TanjongPagar Dock Board, so was the Club. The Singapore Harbour Board subsequently took over that piece of land.

Keppel Club is well equipped with a wide range of sports facilities. The Olympic-sized swimming pool, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, eight-lane Bowling Centre and sea-facing gymnasium are all popular with members and guests. Courses, events and activities including dance, pilates and yoga classes are frequently organized to further liven up the Club's already-vibrant sports scene. Danang Golf Club members wishing to play at Keppel are to contact DGC reservations to arrange.

From October 1st we will be changing the tee markers at Danang Golf Club. In keeping with the traditions of the game and to avoid confusion we will be changing the Blue and Black tees around. Therefore members will play from the Blue markers and professional or low markers from the Black tee markers.

I’m very pleased to announce the partnership between Danang Golf Club and LG Electronics Company. The first exciting news to come from this new partnership is LG will sponsor the 11th hole Par 3. Any golfer scoring a Hole in One will receive the new 42 inch smart plasma TV!! Already we have had 2 golfers win this prize, congratulations to Mr. Tran Minh Ca and Mr. Sean Donovan.

Also beginning October 1st Danang Golf Club will bring the "Twilight Promotion" from 3pm start to a 2:30pm tee time start. For more information or booking please contact reservations@dananggolfclub.com

From the superintendent
Dear Golfers,

Autumn has definitely arrived; September rain fall was 430 ml. Due to the extra moisture and low sunlight we have raised the cutting heights on greens, tees, surrounds and fairways to protect the turf throughout the wet season. Therefore the greens may roll slightly slower than summer months.

The bunker walk-ins will be reshaped and made bigger with new native plants added to restore the bunkers to the natural design.

I do hope you have a great October golfing and good luck to everyone for the monthly medal.

If you have any questions about the course or maintenance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks and Regards,
Ali Macfadyen
Course Superintendent

Rule of the month
Due to the inclement weather here on the central Coast of Vietnam, I thought it fitting to clarify some rules of golf that will help golfers understand what they can and cannot do:

A player cannot receive assistance from a caddie during the rain whilst putting. (In a tournament)

A Caddie may hold the umbrella over the golfer whilst he/she is aligning the putt, however once it is time to play the shot, the caddie must walk away. (Note: This includes shielding from the sun during a fine day)

October Quiz
Be the first to answer the question via facebook, email or phone and win a Danang Golf Club polo golf shirt!

Question:
If a player receives the caddie to hold the umbrella over him/her whilst putting, what is the penalty in Stroke play?
