Results – Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort – 8th September 2020

A beautiful day to play golf on a beautiful and excellent golfcourse! That is in short the summary of today’s Loose Cannons (with a small group) outing. The weather was certainly with us, not too much sun and a regular breeze to cool down even further. Now we know why so many of us are going to an island!The course itself was in a pristine condition.

We teed off from the blue tees a bit earlier than agreed because there was nobody on the course anyway. Why we couldn’t tee off earlier than 8.30, don’t ask me. The girl behind the counter didn’t know either…..Anyway, the greens were in an excellent condition, and also the fairways. The course was dry, so that gave an extra roll to the balls. sometimes very welcome, sometimes not, because suddenly water came into play!

We enjoyed lunch in I Suka, for the LC’s a newcomer. Certainly worth while to keep this in our list. A better quality food, and sitting at the same water as the other one.


Siggy was the only one playing better than his handicap. He mastered the course best of us.

The mystery prize this week was for Brian and earned a sleeve of balls. He had the lowest gross on the first nine. The fact that he ended on the shared third place, says a lot about his second nine 😁.

The monthly prize is headed by Jan (69), followed by Brian (67) and Allan (65). But still a long way to go, another 3 games!


Thanks to Ricardo Castro for the photos.

We were just one short of two flights at Amverton Cove today, the sky looked promising and we had only a couple of flights in front of us when we teed off from the blue tee-box.  But that was a false impression as the first flight in front held us all back, so we were waiting and waiting until Iain Wise got the opportunity to voice our concern over their slow play.
The course was in good condition but played a few shots more than normal as it had been raining lately.
We had to fork out 60Rm each for the M&M, a bit more than we expected as our birthday boy did not stay for lunch, next time Jan van Driel.


Ricardo Castro being the better player this day won with 34, Roger Surieux came second with 30 points.

It had been raining overnight so we were not allowed to drive on the fairways and hence it had not been time for raking of the bunkers, so they were a bit hard. We were also a bit unlucky as the greens surface had been machined to minor groves, a bit tricky for putting.Weather was nice and sunny especially later in the round when the sun had burned away the high humidity and we got a breeze.

Two third of the starters joined for the lunch, a nice airy place along the sea with good food and not too expensive. Iain Wise celebrated his birthday with a 200Rm contribution for the lunch, many thanks and Happy Birthday. Rein Le Tan celebrated his return to the Tuesday game by adding 200Rm to the kitty, many thanks and hope to see you more often.


As one assume most of us had some difficulties with the course, despite of that we had two outstanding players;

– Siegmund Maierbrugger won with a better second nine, Ricardo Castro second, both with 38 points, Brian Stubbs third with 33.

Results – Amverton Golf & Island Resort – 16th July 2019

There were only 10 players today with many people away at this time of year. It was quiet so we started from 2 tee boxes and were not held up unduly. Weather was very cool with dark ominous clouds building up but which thankfully came to nothing.

The course was in fairly good condition and the greens had been recently scarified but were still relatively smooth and true.

We had lunch after the game at the Kang Guan Restaurant which was ok but not on par with some of the other restaurants we visit.



Geoff McLaws was today’s winner playing to handicap with a score of 80 for 36 points. Runner up was Iain Wise with 94 for 35. Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with 80. Full results attached below:

img_2555We had a minor bush-fire smoky surrounding at Amveron Cove. The course were in very good condition, but gee it was hot under the sun although the wind cooled us down a bit.

I have said before: this course is one of the best on LCs tour considering condition and money spent. All twelve assembled at the Chinese restaurant to the right just after the bridge, the beer was cold and the food ordered by Andrew was very good. All in all a nice day out with the LC’s.


There were three people on 37points: Ricardo Castro, Hans Berger and Bernard Rohman, Ricardo won on a better second nine

Results – Amverton Cove – 2nd January 2019


A total of 14 Cannons pitched up at Amverton Cove on 2nd January for the first game of 2019.  Registration was straight forward and we even got a little extra discount for seniors, which was not expected.  So a good start to the day!
A heavy overnight downpour had left the course quite soggy so we had to have buggy on track for the first 9, moving onto the course for the 2nd 9.  We teed off just before 8am from 2 tee boxes with 2 x 3-balls and 2 x 4-balls, and crucially in front of a visiting group of Koreans.  All flights were finished in less than four and a half hours by about 12:15, which is a good pace of play for 4-balls — this should be our target game time.
Today was the first Cannons game using the new 2019 rules – and Roger took advantage of that with a double hit at one of the par 4s.  Searching for a lost ball is now reduced to 3 minutes maximum, but this did not seem to be a problem today.
Overall the course was in good condition with a few squelchy areas due to recent rain, however the greens were super fast which caused some anguish and expletives for most players.
Winner on the day with 39 points and an excellent gross of 83 was Bernard Romahn – the only player to beat his handicap, and he was duly awarded the RM 50 winners prize.  Well done for an excellent round Bernard!  Joint 2nd were Kevin Wiggins and Brian Stubbs with 34 points – who got nout for being 2nd.  Lowest gross of the day was a joint effort of 83 from both Bernard and Jason Winter – well done guys!   We were delighted to welcome back Hans for a trial run of his recovered injuries – but unfortunately that did not work out so well and it’s back to the drawing board for a few weeks — hope it gets sorted soon Hans.
The apres-golf lunch was planned for the Chinese restaurant just across the bridge – however the early finishers found it was closed and made a hastily convened executive decision to relocate to the Selangor Club Kiara Annex.  After various calls and texts and WhatsApp messages, 9 Cannons ended up at the Annex.  Unconfirmed reports came in that Ted and Jason had made their own executive decision to eat at the first available restaurant near the bridge and regrettably they did not join us at the Annex.  Sigi, Johan and Ray already had other plans.
Andrew hosted the lunch with his members card and an enjoyable time was had by all.  Apart from Stan, who was waiting for his Calzoni style pizza for ages and ages — until he realised he had mis-read the menu and it was not available.  Brian Stubbs contributed some beer money on the occasion of his 150th cannons game.  There was a surplus in the cash collected so RM 300 was handed to Hans for 2019 trophys etc and there was no need of a collection for the lunch cost.  The princely sum of RM 77 was left in the kitty and was handed to Roger for next week at Tasik Puteri – look out for Roger’s emails regarding arrangements.
Cheers and Happy New Year!

Despite a torrential downpour one hour before tee-off we managed to tee off at 8:00am under wonderful cool conditions. The course was in remarkeable condition condition the deluge and the greens were the best we have seen for a long time. Buggies were restricted to on-track as some of the course was a little wet and soggy but overall very playable.

We welcomed back Andrew Barber who joined us today (last appearance was somewhere in 2014!) and Stuart Taylor returned from his 7 week vacation. The course was relatively quiet so we were all finished by 12 noon and then had lunch at the usual restaurant over the bridge at the entrance to Pulau Carey.



The winner today was bernard Romahn with a score of 82 (best gross) for 39 points with runner up Mike Williams on 83 for 38 points. Full results below:

We had 3 full flights this morning at Amverton Cove and we started promptly at just before 8:00am. The course was in pretty good shape and the weather pleasantly cool. We made good time round the course then retired to the usual restaurant just over the bridge after the game for some much needed refreshments. Food was passable but surprised a Chinese restaurant had run out of chilli!!!


The winner this week was Kaz Takita with a score of 91 for 38 points. Runner up was Geoff McLaws with a 77 (best gross of the day) for 36 points. Full results below:

We had only 3 flights today at Amverton Cove with 12 players heading at from Hole No 1 at 8:00am. Weather conditions were good and the course was generally ok but the back 9 greens had large areas of sand around the aprons making it sometimes difficult for the approach shots. We were not held up around the course and everyone was back by 12:30 or so for lunch on the golfer’s deck. Lunch was pretty average in terms of food quality and rather expensive compared to othere restaurants outside – perhaps time to reconsider a change.

One other issue noticed on the course today was a group games activity being held between the 9th and the 18th greens directly in front of the clubhouse with a large crowd of noisy participants shouting and screaming – not exactly helping golfers on those greens trying to concentrate on their putts. I realise that Amverton Cove is now offering a multitude of activities from archery, ATV driving, power boat rides in the lake and other team games but they should remember their prime activity is golf and these other activities should not impinge on the golfers while they are playing. Perhaps they should relocated some of these team activities away from the areas near the course.


The winner today with a very steady round was Andrew Robinson with a score of 99 for 37 points and he was the only player who managed to better their handicap today. Joint runners up were Bernard Romahn (86/34) and Iain Wise (98/34). Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an 84 and Brian Stubbs got the best strokes per $ out of the game. Full results below:

IMG_7773There were 16 players this morning for our game at Amverton Cove and we started from 2 tee boxes ta 8:00am. The weather was good although it got very hot and humid by the back 9. The course was fairly quiet (other than the noisy caddies!) and we made good time around the 18 holes. The course was in better condition and the fairways seemed to have more grass on them now.

After the game we had lunch at the club which was surprisingly good – beer in cans only – but no one seemed to go thirsty!



The winner today was Bernie Schobert with 84 for 39 points on count back to Stan Constantinides who came 2nd with 90 for 39 points. Best gross of the day was Jason Winter with 78. Full results below:
