Results – Seri Selangor – 19th September 2017

IMG_5433

We returned to Seri Selangor after a long period where they were renovating the course. There have been some improvements but it is really far from ready with scruffy fairways, dug up areas and some extensive GUR area around some greens. The greens were very good however apart from hole no 18 which is now a temporary green as they work on the proper green. So we may have to leave it a while till we return here.

We had 4 full flights and got off from 2 tee boxes sharply at 8:00am. After the game we had lunch at our regular Pantai Seafood Restaurant which was very good.

With a last minute entry we eventually made 12 players and 4 full flights. It was a beautiful morning and we tee’d off on the Northern and Southern 9’s at 8:00am sharp. The course was in very good condition and the weather stayed clear all morning for us to finish. By 12:30 we were back in the clubhouse for a lunch and some refreshing beers on the terrace.

Results – Danau Golf Club – 5th September 2017

IMG_5280

There were only 3 flights this week for our outing at Danau Golf Club. We all set off at 8:00am sharp from the 10th tee over the difficult terrain of Danau – nothing much has changed with heavy thick rough making it difficult finding balls and playing from – best policy was to try and stay on the fairway. The greens were in good condition however albeit a little tricky with the slopes and the hole positions.

Weather was good and although the skies darkend near the end of the round we got finished before the rain came in later. It is a tough course and most players confirmed it was not one of their favourite courses.

We welcomed a new player today – Eric van Donselaar – introduced by Emlyn Jones. We hope to see him again.

Lunch after the game was at Restoran East of Highway which was excellent as usual.

Results

Kaz Takita was the winner today with 97 for 36 winning on count back from Hans Berger with 98 for 36 – well done Kaz. He didn’t make lunch so his winnings went into the pot to pay for lunch … cheers Kaz!

Best gross of the day was Stuart Taylor with 93 and most golf was Martin Belderink. Full results below:

Results – Palm Garden Golf Club – 29th August 2017

The monthly trophy game for the month of August was played at Palm Garden Golf Club and with some golf vouchers gathered from the last game there we had some discount (well some of the players did!). We had only 4 full flights this week and got off from two tee boxes promptly at 8:00am.

The course was in very good condition and is always a joy to play here with beautiful fairways and excellent greens. From the white tees the course is short so making some birdie opportunities for a few players. The weather was kind as well and was actually a bit cooler than normal.

After the game we all had lunch at the club restaurant with their excellent fish and chips being a firm favourite.

Results

IMG_5233The winner of the August Trophy was Andrew Cseszko with an excellent 76 for 39 points with Ray Funnell runner up with 101 for 38 points. Best gross of the day was Andrew with his 76 and our Convenor, Hans Berger, got the most golf award. Full results below :

Results – Tasik Puteri – 22nd August 2017

IMG_5130There were 5 flights today at Tasik Puteri and we all got off efficiently on the Putera and Puteri 9’s at 8:00am sharp. Weather was good, rather cool and overcast for the first hour or so making it a pleasant morning. The course was looking a little more scruffy than it usually does with overgrown tee boxes and various patches of long grass and GUR on the fairways. The greens were good though and provided some putting challenges on some of the holes.

We had lunch at the club after the game and as usual the food was rather ordinary and took a long time to come for many of us. I would recommend we return to the usual Chin Heong Restoran Chinese Restaurant at this venue the next time.

Results

Some good scores today at the top of the table with quite a few players bettering the ir handicap. The winner was Iain Wise with an excellent 86 for 44 points and continuing in hos post-holiday golf form. Runner up was Tony Morris with 86 for 43 points. best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with an 81 and most golf was shared between Allan Wright and Aftab Ahmad. Full results below:

Results – Impian Golf Club – 15th August 2017

A rainy day in paradise ! 
With Stuart Taylor having to drop out at the last minute due to illness, 19 LC’s (including the returning of our beloved resident convener, Hans Berger from the frozen North with a few more kilos and looking forward to be at the hot seat again) braved torrential rain & dark, treacherous roads to play at the Impian Golf & Country Club earlier today. The heavy rain continued unabated until ~ 7.45am resulting in some delay in teeing off, but eventually 4 flights teed-off on #1 with 1 flight joining a queue on #10.  Rain continued sporadically throughout the morning, with thunder audible and very dark skies overhead; however there was no further interruption due to rain so, despite these issues, play was generally reasonably quick with all players finishing by ~  1.45pm
The course was, as usual, in beautiful condition, if a bit soggy and challenging for some (including your stand-in temporary scribe).

 

Results

The winner was Stan (finally)  with 92 for 36 points. Runner-up was Iain Wise with 95 for 35 (even with 6 blobs ) ahead of Ricardo with 88 for 34. Lowest gross was Ricardo with 88 and the most gross was Ray Funnell with 114. Full results listed below:

Lunch should be at Fei Wai Seafood, but was closed with different name, so we switch to Ken Well seafood restaurant just opposite side attended by only 10 of us. Good food, good company, plenty of good humored banter and 10 nice cold Tiger to help it along. 200 Rm donated by Iain Wise to commemorate his first EAGLE ever, and 50.00 Rm from Roger as a fine to celebrate his fantastic tee shot who ended up before lady’s tee.
Thank you Tony Morris, Stan Constantinides, Hans Berger, Brian Buckley, Roger McGowan, Reinli Tan, Kevin Wiggins, Iain Wise and Martin Belderink to your kind donation to the SILOAM HOUSE.
Thank you all for your support and understanding during this 6 weeks hoping everyone enjoy the prizes, lucky draws and some adding competition bringing to Loose Cannons games more taste and join. Stuart, thank you so much for your support, time and consideration, really appreciate. 33 players were playing during this 6 weeks and hope more members can join us more often. My job is done and now is Mr. Berger’s time to show off.

Results – Bukit Jalil – 8th August 2017

It was cloudy and steamy day when 12 players teed’ off at Bukit Jalil today starting on the front 9 at 8:12 am. The course was as tricky as usual and the greens were running rather quickly generating quite a few multiple putts from all players. Flight one finished in 4 hours, but flight 2 and 3 they were quite slow causing some angry faces and some delay for lunch.
After the game we had lunch at the club with cool beers and quite a reasonable food for the club standard. Bernhard order seafood rice but the seafood was replaced with an succulent kampung chicken, and with a loud complaining from Bernhard they finally brought one more rice with 2 mussels on the top.

Results

The clear winner today was Kaz Takita with an excellent 94 for 39 points. Runner up was Iain Wise with 95 for 36 points (with sleeping puts), Martin Belderink coming 3rd with 96 for 35 points. Ricardo was best gross of the day with his “excellent” 91 and Roger McGowan had the most golf played with 106 so he got his honorable ball to open the battle next week . Full results below :

Results – Bukit Kemuning – 1st August 2017

IMG_4962

The first game of August was played at Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort with 19 players attending. We got off from two tee boxes at 8:00am sharp and most players were not held up during the round. The course is looking a little more unkempt than normal and the greens on the back 9 were very bad – sandy and uneven.

After the game we had lunch at a new venue, Ocean Point Restaurant in Bukit Kemuning, as suggested by Rein Li Tan (he did not show up for lunch with the rest of us so we were left scrabbling to order as the restaurant had no menu). Beer was reasonable (RM17 a bottle) but the meal turned out to be expensive at RM70 a head without ordering any fancy stuff.

Results

The winner today was Brian Stubbs with a fine score of 94 for 43 points – well done Brian. Runner up was Martin Belderink with 91 for 41 points. Best gross was Paul Geddes with an 83 and most golf was David Evans with 105. Full results below :

IMG_4675

The Monthly Trophy game for July was held at Staffield Country Resort with 5 full flights of 20 players. We all started on the Southern 9 at 8:00am sharp and followed this by playing the Western 9.

The course was in good shape overall and the weather cool and overcast for most of the round. We had a short 20 minute stoppage due to thunder and lightning after about 7 holes. After the game we had lunch at the clubhouse and the prize ceremony.

Paul’s New Swing

 

Results – Bukit Unggul – 18th July 2017

We had 5 full flights at Bukit Unggul today and welcomed our new member Brian Buckley on his first official game (he did play at the Golf Charity Match but this was not scored).

2 notable senior moments this morning …….

  1. Paul Geddes made a detour in the morning on the way to golf (as he had “plenty of time”) to go to an ATM machine only to get stuck in bad traffic on his return trip to the club ending up being late and having to pay the RM20 fine …. just as well he went to the ATM!
  2. Stan Constantinides arriving early at the club in the dark made a wrong turn and drove down the buggy track to the golfer’s terrace area …. just as well he has a small car!

We started on split tees on time at just before 8:00am and it was our Highest Gross Winner from last week, Martin Belderink, who kicked off the game with an honoroury exploding ball shot on the 10th tee!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The course was in better shape than I have seen for a while and the greens were very good although some still had a lot of sand on them. Some tee boxes need to be attended to however ….. and of course as usual the showers after the game were stone cold.

We had lunch at the club after the game with 18 people attending.

Results

The winner today was Bernard Romahn with 82 for 42 points and runner up was Kevin Wiggins with 88 for 38. Best gross today was shared by Bernard Romahn and Mike Williams, both with 82. Full results below:
