STAFFIELD RESULTS-26-10-2021

Dear All,

It was a pleasure to play Staffield again. As we know it is a course well maintained, and also this time we were not disappointed at all. In spite of the rains we had over the last couple of days, this course was in very good condition. From tee to green, no comments at all, only good ones. We all enjoyed ourselves in the morning, although some of us had one or two problems with our own game…As the convener, I decided to play the bunkers again, as the course told me that this was OK, so we were prepared, until we saw the sign at the first tee, that bunkers were not in play. So that is how also conveners get overruled!
We welcomed Hans Berger back again!!! Hans, it was good to see you again on the course, and also during the lunch afterward.
We had two full flights this morning, and we all stayed for lunch. This is a very positive and unique happening. It is part of our philosophy that our golf match only finishes after lunch together. It does enhance the community spirit and the chatting around the table is more than welcome!
The scores showed quite a large spread with Bernhard hammering the course with 39 points!! Congratulations, Bernhard. The second was Jan, playing exactly his handicap, and Erol finished third with 32 points. Hans received the mystery gift for being with us again after a very long time. The winner of the month of October is Helmut, which we will celebrate next week, together with his birthday…….
Next week we will meet up at Kota Seriemas, see you there.

NILAI SPRINGS RESULTS-20-10-2021

Dear All,

Our summary of the game at Nilai was: a good course (we played Mango and Island)  in a nearly perfect condition, from tee to green. And indeed it was, the course was in a great shape, which could not be said from the players who were using it……, but more about that later.The weather was very good to us, not too much sun, a good breeze every now and then, and we finished the 18th hole when the first rain came down. That rain changed into a pouring deluge later, which caused some problems on the road back to KL. In spite of the variable quality of golf we played, we enjoyed the morning out.And these were the scores: Iain was the only one who conquered the course, and stayed below the 100 strokes: 94 – 36.  so he deserved the voucher!! Even the winner of the last two weeks, Helmut scored much lower: 102 – 30. Jan and Bernhard closed the ranks with respectively 101 – 28 and 100 – 23. Anyway, this is golf…. Because of the weather we enjoyed some drinks and food at the club, and next week we will see each other at Staffield.

BUKIT BERUNTUNG RESULTS-12-10-2021

Dear All,

We had a very good and pleasant game at Bukit Beruntung today. We remember the course from years back, frequently dug up by the wild boars, but since the fencing has been installed, the tees, fairways and greens are in a very good condition. Always a pleasure to play there in the middle of a nice mix of forest and oil palm plantation. At times so quiet, that really nothing can be heard…………The only thing to take care of is to be aware of the monkeys trying to steal stuff from the buggies!
The scores were quite good, although we had some balls strayed off in the trees or half in the water, but that didn’t harm our fun and skills to get good scores this morning.
Helmut won (again!!!), now with 92 – 42, Iain was second with 92 – 38, Jan third with 95 – 34 and Bernhard closed the ranks with 90 – 33. So Helmut received the voucher and Bernhard belts as a September Champion, to keep his shorts up, after having too much food and drinks.A good lunch with some beers at restaurant Full Moon was our reward after the game.

SERI SELANGOR RESULTS-5-10-2021

Dear All,

We had two three balls this morning, which normally promises a good run time through the course. However, a very slow flight in front of us, which also decided to play off the blue tees, caused quite some waiting time. Anyway, the weather was good, no sun to start with and only the last 5/6 holes it was getting warmer. And of course the company was good. We saw Erol back again, recently a new grandfather, and Helmut after a very long stay in Europe. Welcome again!
The course was very good, some greens very sandy, but nevertheless fast and true. A pleasure to play here again. The registration was a bit unorganized as they are still renovating in the clubhouse, but we were allowed to use the locker rooms and showers again! And that is a relief, to have a nice shower after a round of golf.
We had lunch in the Beer Factory, just across the road where we met our other Tuesday fellows.Our birthday boy Iain gave us a generous donation to celebrate that fact and therefore the lunch, and beers, were very cheap!! Congratulations and thanks very much, Iain.
The scores were as follows: Helmut won with 35 points (99 gross), so he got the voucher. Jan was second with 96 – 33, Dave 106 – 31, Tony 96 – 30, Erol 113 – 29 and Iain closed off with 104 – 26

BUKIT KEMUNING RESULTS-28-9-2021

Dear All,

We had a sort of mini Ryder Cup at Bukit Kemuning, the Blues against the Oranges. I leave it to the imagination of the readers to decide who was who. Anyway, we had a very enjoyable game, a lot of fun and we all played well. The course, from tee to green was in a good condition, certainly taking into account the amount of rain we had recently. Of course the rough outside the fairways had its wet patches, and yes, some of the greens were a bit bumpy, but on the whole it was a great morning. The weather was helping us as well, clear with nice blue skies with some clouds in it.
The scores were good: Bernard won with 87 – 37, Jan was second (OCB) with 93 – 36, Iain third with 94 – 36 and Dave closed the ranks with 109 – 28. So the conclusion was that the Oranges won the match…..Lunch was a bit of a challenge, Gather Gather Kitchen didn’t have any beer, The Beer World was closed (!!), so we ended up in a Chinese coffee house/restaurant, where we were allowed to sit on two tables next to each other to enjoy our food and our beer.
Next week Seri Selangor is in the plans

TASIK PUTERI RESULTS-21-9-2021

Dear All,

After a very long time, about 6 months, we teed off at Tasik Puteri again. And it was a joy to play. The weather was great, as can be seen from the pictures, and the course was in a good condition. Admittedly some parts were very wet, to the point that I lost a ball just in front of the green, plugged probably half a meter below the fairway.There have been a number of cows/buffalo’s on the course as some of the fairways, and greens, were damaged, but that was OK, as everybody had the same problem. The greens were a bit variable as far as speed is concerned, sometimes very slow and some of them good speed as expected. Again, as in the last weeks, the course was very quiet. Not all golfers have found the way back to the golf course again, it seems.Our regular restaurant was closed, only open for take away, and therefore we enjoyed lunch and beers at the club.
The scores were OK as well, only Tony played to his handicap, which resulted in him ending up in first place (90 – 36). Dave had 105 – 32, Bernard 91 – 32, Iain 99 – 31, Jan 98 – 31 and Robert 113 – 32

BUKIT JALIL RESULTS-14-9-2021

Dear All,

Again we were with a small group at a good playable Bukit Jalil. A lot of our regulars are abroad, so for the time being we have to get used to a small group. As said, Bukit Jalil was in a good condition, not easy to play, and that is shown by the scores: nobody ended in the thirties…..We had good fun, some balls really strayed off the good path, but that’s part of golf. 
Tony was first with 97 – 29, Jan second with 102 – 27, Iain third with 105 – 25 and Dave closed the round off with 113 – 24. We will stay away for some time from Bukit Jalil as we can now venture into Selangor and KL combined again. So next week Tasik Puteri is on the program.

KGPA RESULTS-7-9-2021

Dear All,

We had a wonderful afternoon golf at KPGA! As they do not allow us, as non members, to play in the morning, we played an afternoon game. The course was quite empty, and therefore great to play. Yes, the sun was out, but we had a good breeze to keep it nice and pleasant.We played the lakes, followed by the hills, not the easiest ones, and both were in a very good condition. The railways and greens were very well maintained and excellently playable. In short, we had fun and really enjoyed ourselves.KPGA is always a difficult course to play, as was clear from the scores: Bernard finished top with 90 – 33, followed by Dave with 110 – 27.Full results below. We followed this up with a couple of good drinks and some food at Lavaa restaurant.
Next week Bukit Jalil again!

Cheers

RESULTS BKT JALIL-1-9-2021

Dear All,

What a joy it was to be able to play golf  again! Nice to be out again with friends and try to get a nice score in.We began last week with almost two full flights, then one after another dropped out, so eventually we played with 5, a two ball and a three ball. The course was almost empty, so we had a fast time, coming back within 4 hours.As expected, the course was wet, resulting in frequent looking for plugged balls, sometimes even well under the fairway surface. The greens were good, so that was not the excuse. It was more that we haven’t been playing for quite a while that the scores were a bit low.Jan finished first with 97 – 32, Bernard 92 – 30, Iain 100 – 30, Tony 102 – 24, Dave 118 – 19
After the game, no locker rooms, no showers (apart from Bernard….!), but a good lunch at the club.
So the first game is in!! Let’s hope that was the first one of many to come without any MCO’s anymore!
See you all next week.

AUGUST 2021 REPORT-THE GREAT ESCAPE!!

Dear All,

August 2021 was again a month without golf for the Loose Cannons. But….. on 1st September we will play again. If it weren’t for the fact that we have a public holiday on 31st August, we would have had a game in August.At last the government decided that playing golf is not that hazardous anymore as long as you are fully vaccinated. So we are looking forward to playing our first game again!So time to dust off our clubs and our skills, and let’s get going! See you all Wednesday at Bukit Jalil to celebrate our freedom.

Cheers
Jan
