Results – Tasik Puteri – 19th August 2014


We had 15 players this morning at Tasik Puteri and we got off to an early start at 5 mins to 8 on two nines (Puteri and Putera). Course conditions were good and the greens quite fast. We made good time round the course but unfortunately due to heavy rain the siren went and suspended play with most players having a few holes to play. Our 4 ball luckily managed to finish the 18th albeit in heavy rain.
We had lunch at our usual Chinese restaurant close to Rawang on the road back to the highway which was good – thank you again to Andrew for the ordering (The black tau foo was particularly good!)

As most players did not manage to finish all 18 holes other than Flight 3 we made the ruling that any hole not played scored 2 points so we could announce a winner. The winner was Geoff McLaws with a very good 40 points and second place was tied between Aftab Ahmad and Jeff Pearce both on 39 points. The gross scores were back-calculated from the Stableford points.
Other than the group that finished (highlighted in yellow on the scoresheet below) the scores were not input into the handicap system as these were incomplete rounds.

Results – Berjaya Hills – 12th August 2014

It was a lovely morning with cool air at the top of Bukit Tinggi when 10 of the Loose Cannons tee’d off at 8:00am – a pleasant change from the high humidity of the lower altitudes of the Klang Valley. The course was a little patchy with a fair bit of wart hog action on the fairways and in particular the greens were bad having been recently sanded leaving it a rather random process to proceed the ball towards the hole. The course however was relatively quiet with only a few other players who decided to move ahead of us to the 10th rather than sticking behind us as we started on hole 1.
After the game we drove back down the hill to Kampung Bukit Tinggi for a great (and cheap) lunch at Restaurant 126 – well ordered Tony!
The winner again this week was Barry Sage with a great score of 88 and 40 points (24 points on the back 9!) – this is now a back to back win for barry who has obviously found his form. We will be seeing his handicap dropping accordingly! Second was Stuart Taylor with the best gross of the day (84) and 37 points.

Results – Nilai Springs – 5th August 2014


There were 16 players today making a full 4 flights. Weather was excellent and we all got off on the Pines 9 at 8:00am prompt and made fairly good time round the course. The course was in good shape and some of the greens fairly fast with an evil slope on hole number 22 which caught out many of the players trying to putt downhill or across the slope. No excuse however for the 3 putts from 2ft I had on the first hole!
After the game most of us adjourned to Dengkil Seafood Restaurant and had some good food and beers.
We had two players tied for 1st place with 41 points but the winner goes to Barry Sage on count back and with a gross of 88 – well done Barry! Second was therefore Siggy with 41 points and a gross of 85.
