Results – Perangsang Templer – 26th March 2013

13 players at Perangsang for the March Trophy game. We welcomed a new player, Ian Dickson, who will hopefully become a regular. 

After the very heavy overnight rain, several of the bunkers were full of water and no run was apparent on the fairways. Weather was very pleasant with a slight breeze. The scores, were generally better than expected, bearing in mind the wet conditions. Lowest gross was by Geoff Mclaws with 81 just beating Bernard with a 82. The winner , as predicted from the first

flight, was Hans Berger with 93 for 45 points, cut 9…Second was Bernard with 43 points cut only 1.

An excellent lunch followed at the Tang Dynasty , where much to Andrew’s delight the Jacobs Creek Merlot was only 49 RM per bottle. He considered buying all their stock…!!

Results – Staffield Country Resort – 19th March 2013

This was the milestone day, as we celebrated Andrew Robinson’s 300th game for the Cannons. We had 5 full flights, which unfortunately at the club’s request, all started from 1 st tee on the Southern course.
17 players plus R.Moss esq. and Dick Stauffer joined Andrew for lunch at the Annexe where a lonnnggg lunch was enjoyed by all. Andrew many, many thanks for your generousity with the lunch bill, and the sleeves of balls.
Now onto the golf….
Staffield was in good condition but several fairways, primarily on the Northern 9, had been effected by yesterday’s storm, with 20 trees down and some of the fairways covered with leaves and branches. The club were working hard to start to clear the debris. The greens were back to their usual excellent, true, fast condition.
Some excellent scores on the day, worth highlighting. John Laidley was back to his imperious best with a 78 for 39 points, which included a front nine to par….!! Bernard 80 for 44 points. Erol came second with 90 for 47 points. None of which reached the winner on the day, Aftab, 90 for 48 points. Well done. Shame you did not come to lunch as your winnings went into the pot, as is customary. Aftab cut 12, Erol cut only 1…..!!
Andrew’s prizes of sleeve of balls went to Erol, second, Dave Hughes, 13 th and Andre had 2 sleeves for the honour of bringing up the rear.

Results – KRTU – 12th March 2012


KRTU was in it’s usual excellent condition. The overnight rain reduced run, on the cut fairways, but the greens were as true, undulating and challenging as always. The scores reflected the challenging nature of the course, with only 6 players breaking the 100. 

Using the TP book this is exceptional value and with everyone arriving punctually, we teed off on the booked time. As always the staff were friendly and helpful and a good day was had by all. 

The winner on the day was the “in form man”… Stuart Taylor with an excellent 86 for 45 points. Cut 9. Second on a 3 way count back was Gordon Wingate, from Andrew and Hans, with 96 and 39 points. Gordon cut 1. Lowest gross was David Hughes with 85, getting his health and form back.

Results – Impian Golf &Country Club – 5th March 2013


Thank you to all the 16 players who arrived punctually and we teed off on time at 0730 hrs. It is a long time since Cannons played at Impian, and for me personally the first time. 

Very good course, but some of the fairways on the front 9 were a little short of grass, but generally in good condition, with the greens playing well and true. Good weather and good run on the fairways were an indication of the scoring. Only 4 players failed to break the 100. 
One hopes that now Sime Darby own the course that developments will happen to further improve the course.   Also good value, when using the TP books. 

The winner on the day was Iain Wise with gross 95 for 43 points. Cut 7. Iain won on count back from Ray Funnell 94 for 43 points, cut 1 and Andrew Robinson 89, 43 points.  Lowest Gross was Ted Parslow with 86.
