Results – Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club – 29th January 2013


14 players teed off with a chilly start, but very quickly the sun was out and the stunning scenery and the incredibly clear, unpolluted blue sky made for excellent playing conditions. For me, perhaps the most spectacular weather day I have ever had “up the hill” .We were even treated to a troop of gibbons playing in the trees and the rough, with the dominant male,

breaking off dead tree branches and throwing them onto the fringe of the green. The course was in good condition, a few soggy patches, not unexpected, and the greens were also good and played very true.  A good lunch followed down the hill at 126.  As is now customary for this venue.

To celebrate Ray’s 250th game with LCs, 4 sleeves were up for the NTPs. Winners were, Kevin Wiggins, Andrew Robinson, Tony Morris, and Gordon Wingate.

The winner of the invisible January trophy, was Andrew Robinson with 95 for 38 points, just beating Bernard Rohman with 92 for 37 points. Andrew cut 4 and Bernard only 1. 

Lowest gross was Geoff Mclaws with 82. Would have been a little better if the caddy had had any idea where his shots finished up….!!  An excellent 3 over on the back 9, including another lost ball on the 18 th.

Results – Perangsang Templer Golf Club – 22nd January 2013


A beautiful day for golf, the course had dried up very well and was in excellent condition. The greens were good, and an enjoyable day was had by all. Followed by, I hear a good lunch. 

Pre registration worked well and the club proved very helpful. We teed off on time and all flights were back in around 4 hours. Certainly we will play this course again in the circuit.

Now they have our birthdates on file, next time will be even easier. Also the course is very good value. 

No longer the bridesmaid… Stuart Taylor was the winner with 89 gross for 41 points. At last, he has a cut of 5….Second was Andrew Robinson with 94 for 40 points. Cut 1. Lowest gross was by Geoff Parslow with an excellent 79 for 39 points.



Results – Tropicana Golf & Country Resort – 15th January 2013


20 Players all managed to find Tropicana, one with a little difficulty, and we teed off on time. Unfortunately only 1 box was available.  The course was in excellent condition, greens were fast and true and as many of us discovered the bunkers were deep and rather plentiful….!! 

The winner was Klaus, scoring an excellent 85 for 46 points. Cut a large 10 points. Second was my “nominated favourite” Erol with 93 for 44. Only cut 1. Should be good for next week!!

I had the fortune of watching the lowest gross by Ted Parslow of 81, and no doubt he will enjoy asking Geoff the scores during the week. Hans “Bunker” Berger focused his game this week on doing a full and thorough review of most of the bunkers on the course …. by the end of the round his success out of the sand was definitely improving.

Many thanks to Geoff and Ted, for getting the special rate.  A good day was had by all. 17 players then went to lunch at the local Star restaurant as recommended by Glen, and a good spread was rapidly devoured along with numerous amber coloured drinks.



Next Game – Tropicana Golf Club – 15th January 2013

Next game will be on Tuesday 15th January at TROPICANA GOLF & COUNTRY RESORTPlease be at the course by 0720 hrs with booked tee off at 0745 hrs.

Thanks to Geoff and Ted Parslow for getting the special rate of 150 RM. This will include 1 caddy per flight. 4 flights booked with option for additional flight if required. Please let Ray Funnell know of any additions or changes as soon as possible and by 1200 hrs Monday latest.

Results – KGSAAS – 8th January 2013


A good turnout of 19 Players teed off on time at 0745 hrs on the Sultan and Alam Shah 9 s. Great golfing weather, light cloud and even a little breeze…..KGSAAS was not in its normal excellent condition, with some long , uncut rough, varied uncut fairways, and a few of the greens had been deluge effected.  But all had a good morning’s golf. 

The winner on the day, with an excellent lowest gross 79 for 43 points was Geoff McClaws. Cut 7.   Next time out handicap 4. The now customary bridesmaid was Stuart Taylor with 90 for 42 points. Cut only 1.



Results – Rahman Putra – 2nd January 2013


Registration worked well, and the first flight teed off, on time, at 0745. hrs. Flights had to be changed slightly as two players got a little lost and one person, claimed no E Mails, went to the wrong course. 

The first 9 was the Hills and the second was the front 9 on the Lakes. Both courses played long and the rough, after all the rain was tough, as a result the scores were higher than usual with only 7 of the 16 starters breaking the 100. The greens were in excellent condition, but some of the pin positions were somewhat challenging….

Geoff Parslow had an excellent round of 80, for the lowest gross of the day. The winner was Ray Funnell with a 98 for 38 points, cut 4 and Stuart Taylor was again the runner up with 96 for 37 points. – cut 1.

Lunch was taken at the club and all bar one person joined the beer free banter.
