We will take M&M off course. Thanks go to Barry for making the booking in my absence.
If you want to play respond to Mike Smith.

Results – Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi – 25th January, 2011

12 golfers pitched up for the Trophy Game at Berjaya Hills in cool overcast conditions. I say 12 pitched up but 3 of these, 2 of whom were relying on Reinli for a lift, arrived at 8:45; Reinli having gone back to sleep after his early morning call from Tom. So, 2 flights teed off at 08:00 and the 3rd an hour later and got caught in the rain at the last hole. Reinli, you should be publicly pissed on. The course was in good condition but rather wet. Nevertheless it played well and we didn’t play winter rules although we perhaps should have. The traumatic drive to try and make up time and the soaking on the last didn’t however stop Reinli from collecting the Trophy with 38 points plus 1 bonus point for a total of 39. Nor did it stop John Laidley shooting 79 for lowest gross. The runner up was Tony Morris with 35 + 3 and the most golf…just…was played by Raymond.
M&M was taken at the Remember126 Restoran in the village and while the food was just OK the price was very OK. Thanks to Andrew and Richard for finding this place for us. Their sense of duty knows no bounds. We used to use one tooth fatty but the last time we were there the food was rubbish and the price outrageous so Fatty is out and 126 is in.

Results – Kinrara Golf Club – 18th January 2011

The usual small turnout on the day preceding KLOGS. It never fails to amaze me; even taking age into account, that so many believe that they can’t play 2 days running.

So, 10 of us played the very picturesque Kinrara course in pleasant conditions that warmed up through the later holes; a change from the cool conditions of recent weeks. The course was in generally good condition but very wet and with little run with several lost balls due to plugging. The greens however were poor compared to the rest of the course, rather bumpy and with half of them recently hollow tined and sanded.
The winner was Tony Morris with 42 points, cut 6, and the runner up was Reinli Tan with 38 points, cut 1. The lowest gross was recorded by John Laidley with 82 and the most golf was played by Tom Holmes.
One flight did not return a score because none of them came to lunch and between them they couldn’t organise themselves to get their scores to the convener. This is unacceptable. It is the flights responsibility to return a score card at the end of the game.
Lunch was taken at thr RSC Annex and very agreeable it was too.

Results – Tasik Puteri Golf Club – 11th January 2011

15 players said they would play but only 13 actually made it to Tasik Puteri on a damp and overcast morning that threatened rain but mercifully stayed dry. With cool conditions and a course in very good order; especially the greens that were both fast and true, scoring should have been lower than recorded but…… Andrew Robinson, back from the snow fields of England, ran out the winner OCB with 37 points from R/U Tony Morris. Lowest gross was 88 by Hans Berger (clearly the cut of 10 last week only brought out the best in him!) and the most golf was played by Barry Cousins with a score that won’t be recorded here. Lets just say it was a score Australia would have been proud of recently.
M&M was enjoyed by 10 of the 13 plus Raymond Keys who declined the golf, but knows where a tasty meal can be had! The makan was good as we have come to expect at the Equatorial without being outstanding but the camaraderie was excellent.

Results – Staffield Golf & Country Club – 4th January 2011

A small turnout this week of 10 golfers found Staffield in reasonable nick with much evidence of long overdue maintenance in progress. We played the Southern & Northern nines in ideal conditions with the firm fairways producing good run and the greens played true and quite fast, especially on the Southern 9. The only real complaint is the very soft (boggy) patches in front of and around several greens due to leaking water pipes. On an otherwise firm golf course a ball; even a golfer, can easily be plugged and even lost in these mini swamps.
Hans Berger was the winner (and the low gross) with 87 and 46 points and the runner up was Barry Cousins with 43 points. The most golf was played by myself as I continue to struggle to refind my game. The new eyes will, I hope, help.
5 golfers took M&M in Mantin and very good it was too, particularly the pork nuckle which was exceptional. Pity Tony couldn’t join us; he’s on a diet I understand! Bloody hell, just when I thought we were getting away from all these juices and other unmentionable beverages that members haaave started to consume in place of the amber nectar we have a stalwart abstaining all together in the name of vanity. For Barry, Mantin was a bridge too far. The other absentees no doubt had similar weak excuses. Guys, the apre golf M&M is an important element of Loose Cannons golf mornings.
This was Michael Hughes last game this visit. Bon voyage Mike.
Watch this space for details of next weeks venue which likely will be Tasik Puteri.
