Results – Tasik Puteri – 28th June 2011

Cannons all.
9 LC’s contested the Trophy Game at Tasik Puteri on a fine breezy morning. We played the original 18 which was generally in good condition but with bumpy greens; unusual for TP. With few delays we were all round in well under 4 hours.
The winner was Bernhard Romahn with 41 points from runner-up Ray Funnell with 40 points. Bernhard is cut 4 and Ray 1. The best gross was 88 by Siegi and the most golf was played by Barry.
M&M was at the Equatorial. I think they have changed their cook! OK but not the great grub it was once famous for but still great value for money.

Results – Bukit Unggul – 21st June 2011

Cannons all
BU was in OK condition Tuesday; a couple of greens having recently been hollow tined and heavily sanded, but this will happen on an 18 hole layout where you can’t rest a nine. The weather was fine and the course very dry with lots of run on the fairways and some very impressive scores were anticipated on this relatively easy track but……………
11 had signed up by pm Monday but this dwindled to 9 by Tuesday morning but as we have some members here and several HSBC card holders who enjoy free green fees it’s not an expensive venue. But I wonder how much longer this place can survive? A great pity really as with some TLC under proper imaginative management it could be a very nice venue.
Andrew Robinson was the winner with a low gross of 86 and 39 points with Klaus Kretzschmar runner-up with 35 points. Most golf was played by Vincent with 116.
This was Andrew’s 255th game with LC and his 30th win with a win ratio of 8.5 moving him into the top place for wins. Well done Andrew. You are cut 4 strokes and Klaus 1 stroke.
Bukit Unggul was dry and running fast ….. unlike the players!

Doesn’t look like Mike has a club in his hand … perhaps it is moving too quickly!!

Results – Nilai Springs – 14th June 2011

Cannons all.
Another small turnout this week with only 7 LC’s at Nilai Springs which was a pity since the course was in excellent order with firm, fast greens. Despite a rare weather interruption of some 40 mins. we were all round in good time.
Ray Funnell was the winner with 41 points, cut 5, and Mike Smith was r/u with 40 points, cut 1. The lowest gross was 87 from Simon Compton and the most golf was played by Richard Moss.
A welcome was extended to a new Cannon; Jeff Pearce.

Results – Kajang Hills – 7th June 2011

An excellent morning at Kajang Hill was enjoyed by  a good turnout of 12.  The course in fine shape, perfect weather and no hold-ups. And a decent lunch included in the package at RM532 for a full flight.   
Two players amassed 48 stableford points each – Simon Compton with 86/48 pipping Glen Wombwell with 90/48 OCB. Julian had the lowest gross with 84 and Richard played the most golf with 107.  Simon is cut 12 and Glen is cut 1. Full results:
1. Simon Compton – 86/48
2. Glen Wombwell – 90/48
3. Bernhard Romahn – 88/43
4. Julian Purvis – 84/42
5. Andrew Robinson – 89/36
6. Hans Berger – 93/34
7. Ray Funnell – 101/34
8. Ian Geekie – 105/34
9. Siegmund Maierbrugger – 90/33
10. Andrew Barber – 97/32
11. Richard Moss – 107/32
12. Barry Cousins – 104/27
One player per flight was awarded a Kajang Hill Golf Club Early Bird Guest Privilege Card – these are valid for 6 months and enable the holders to book the same package for RM412 for a full flight including lunch.  So Kajang Hill should be on the Cannons schedule a tad more frequently going forward.  The cardholders are Robinson/Moss/Funnell.
Yours truly cannot play next Tuesday – when hopefully Mike will be back at teh helm?
Mike please update stats and confirm arrangements for next Tuesday

Next Game – Kajang Hills – 7th June 2011

Next Tuesday 7th June we will return to the excellent KAJANG HILLS Golf Club.  Please let Andrew Robinson know asap if you will be playing as we will need full flights to take advantage of the special offer.

For those of you playing Kajang Hill next Tuesday, we have a tee time of 7.44.

So please aim to be at the club by 7.15 latest.

This is one of the better courses we play and the ‘package’ is RM532 per full flight of 4, and this includes lunch. So I will be collecting RM150 pp on arrival.

Please confirm soonest your attendance DIRECT TO

Results – KGSAAS – 30th May 2011

Stuart’s Apology
I’m embarrassed to report that having committed to play at this week’s game, having meticulously laid out my golf kit and set my alarm for an early rise I failed due to one mistake ………. phone set to mute means your alarm does not sound! Hence I slept in passed the appointed time to get up and failed to make the venue at KGSAAS for my very infrequent appearance with the Loose Cannons group. A severe disappointment but of course things went on and the group I’m sure had a most enjoyable day out while I was resigned to head to the office for a rather un-fun day!

Report from Andrew Robinson
Cannons played on Monday this week to take advantage of the special MONDAY MADNESS deal on offer at KGSAAS.  However, just 8 of us competed for the months: TROPHY GAME

After Stuart overslept and Barry generously volunteered to drop out so as to leave 2 full flights instead of an awkward 3 x 3 balls…  The course was in good order with excellent greens, clement weather and no significant hold-ups. The winner with gross 91 for 38 points plus maximum bonus points was Andrew Robinson, and cut 4.  Runner-up was  Bernhard Romahn with gross 96 for 36 points. Tony Morrris had the lowest gross with 89 and Ray Funnell, got the best value for his money with 108 strokes. Full details:

1. Andrew Robinson – 91/38
2. Bernhard Romahn – 96/36
3. Simon Compton – 99/32
4. Richard Moss – 107/31
5. Tony Morris – 89/30
6. Ray Funnell – 108/29
7. Hans Berger – 98/27
8. Julian Purvis – 98/25

Mike Smith and Barry Cousins joined us for lunch – F&B was taken at the club and it was very ordinary – slow service (especially for fish curry), mediocre quality and high prices – including RM24++ for a large melon juice. And a rather odd preponderance of somewhat dreadful Maryland Chicken in evidence…?  Whilst it seems a sound idea to return to KGSAAS more frequently for the Monday deal, perhaps post-golf sustenance might be taken elseware?
