Tan Vi Kung (8) seized Kota Permai GCC’s Men’s Club Championship title after the June 21-23 showdown saw him keep a steady hold on his lead for a two-shot victory over closest challenger and newly crowned Senior champ Eric Foo Hwa Peng (3) on a three-day total of 233. The Nett title was claimed by Lee Peng Chin (11) on 220 nett by virtue of a countback.

A week earlier on June 15-16, Khairunhanisah Azlan Hanif reaffirmed her status as Kota Permai’s best female golfer yet again, after seizing her fifth successive victory at the 2013 Ladies Club Championship.

Firing rounds of 72 and 77 for a two-day total of 153, the five-handicapper surged ahead of rising KPGCC teen star Raeysha Surendran (8) by five shots to claim the Ladies Gross title, leaving the latter in the runner-up’s seat. Last year’s runner-up Ong Gim Hong (11) settled for third place this year on 159.

Meanwhile, the Ladies Nett category saw Doris Yee (11) bagging the title with a combined two-day total of 143, also five-shots clear over her closest rival and runner-up Loo Eng Loo (20). Ng Guat Lee (22) took third place on 151.

Held simultaneously, the Seniors Club Championship saw Eric Foo (3) leading the seniors on a two-day winning total of 149 to claim the Gross category, three shots ahead of runner-up Goh Kian Yong (7). Tajudin Supian (5) assumed third place on 155.

With all the top three performers finishing on 141, the Senior Nett category indeed witnessed a tussle to the end. After a countback, Ng Thin Poh (9) was announced the winner, Phang Ah Kheon (15) as runner-up and Eoon Chin Oon (24) in third place.

The Super Senior gross and nett categories in contention for golfers aged 60 and above, saw Dato’ Ayob Mohamed (10) snagging the Gross title on 176, two-shots ahead of runner-up Steven Tiong (14). Last year’s victor Goh Ah Hin (18) meanwhile retained his winning streak, this time over at the Nett category where he finished on 144, while Ng Ah Chong (21) successfully defended his runner-up position two points back.
