Results – Amverton Cove – 23rd May 2017

Just a few players requires a short report doesn’t it;
– When we assembled for a shat (Editor : not sure if this was meant to be a chat or a shit) and a small bite early morning we were more or less alone at the club

– Course were in good condition through out

– Dark clouds were threatening at first but having played four holes or so the sun dominated the sky, luckily we had a nice breeze to cool us down a bit

– After five six holes the locals had arrived and the course were quite busy

Kaz Takita won with 98/34 closely followed by Ray Funnel with 105/33

And as usual when we play Amverton Cove we had a good lunch at the Chinese restaurant immediately to the right after the bridge.

Results – Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort – 14th February 2017


On a beautiful Valentine Day’s morning 22 Loose Cannons plus 2 guests tee’d off from tee boxes 1 & 10 at Amverton Cove & Island Resort. The course was quiet and in quite good conditon except for the tee boxes which had recently been modified and sanded heavily. We made good time round the 18 holes and the first group were finished before noon. Weather was good and relatively cool making it a very pleasant morning.

Welcome to our two guests from Huan Hin who joined us today; Frank MacKenzie and Richard Green.

We had lunch at the usual Chinese seafood restaurant over the bridge as you left Carey Island – food was ok – not brilliant …. except for the lovely fresh prawns …. but the beer was cold and plentiful.



The winner today was Brian Stubbs with an excellent 91 for 44 points (cut 8). Runner up was Peter Kenyon with 96 for 41 points. Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with 80. Full results below:






Results – Amverton Cove – 13th September 2016


There were only 12 players this week to enjoy the delights of Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort. We got off early on the back 9 just after 7:30am in front of a competition group that were also at the club and therefore managed to navigate round the course in fairly quick time. The course was in better condition than the last time we played so it is good to see the course returning to some of its former glory. There had been some recent rain so there were some wet patches around the course but the greens were generally very good although some seemed very slow compared to others.

After the game we had lunch at the nearby seafood restaurant as per usual where we managed a large choice of seafood washed down by many Tiger beers.


The winner this week was Ricardo Castro with an excellent 84 for 44 points with runner up being Ted Parslow with an 84 for 40 points. Best gross was shared between Ricardo and Ted with their 84’s. Full results below:




Results – Amverton Cove – 12th April 2016

After some early morning rain it was a cool start to the day as 23 players headed out from two tee boxes at Amverton Cove. We have seen the course in better condition – there were many bare patches on the fairway and some untidy patches with water hoses all over the place. The greens however were quite good.

We welcomed a new guest of Ian Wise today, Mark Tiernan and warmly welcomed back David Hughes who is over on his annual pilgrimage to KL.

Lunch was taken after the game at the usual seafood restaurant by the bridge on the road back out from the golf club.


The winner today with a gross 84 for 42 points was Stuart Taylor – cut 6. 2nd place was Mahmud Mohamed with 87 for 40 on count back from Peter Kenyon with 95 for 40. Best gross of the day was a 79 from Geoff McLaws.

Results – Amverton Cove – 29th December 2015

For the last Loose Cannon’s game of 2015 and the Trophy Game for December we played at Amverton Cove. We originally had 4 full flights but due to tow last minute pull-outs we had 14. We teed off on split 9’s and the pace was very good for the first 9 holes …. after the turn some Tan Sri and local sultan had cut in in front of the groups and the last 9 holes were rather slow. However the course was in good shape and the weather was fine.
Post game we ate lunch at the usual restaurant at the bridge close to the club – food was good (well ordered Iain Wise) and a suitable quantity of liquid amber was consumed.
Ray Funnell will be resigning as Convenor – many thanks Ray for all the good work this year – and Mike Smith will be taking over the helm as of 1st 2016 aided by myself, Stuart Taylor, to do the handicapping and Iain Wise to do the monies.
Our December Trophy winner was Jeff Pearce with an excellent 40 points (gross of 88) with Geoff McLaws runner up (again!) with the best gross of the day of 77 and 39 points. Full results below:



Results – Amverton Cove – 25th August 2015

We had 5 flights today and 19 players for the Loose Cannons August Trophy Game at Amverton Cove. We all got off on two tee boxes at 8:00am and all made good time around the course. Weather was good – a little overcast and hazy. The course was generally in good condition but I noticed a few areas around the course which were rather untidy and needed some attention. Greens were fairly good but many people noticed them to be a little bumpy.
We had lunch and prize giving at the seafood restaurant back along the road from the club next to the river. Paul Geddes was given his trophy which he won back in June but Andrew Chez, our winner of the day, unfortunately couldn’t join us for lunch – his trophy will be passed on to him but the winning RM50 was promptly put back into the coffers by Moneybags, Iain Wise and put towards the lunch.
The winner of the August Trophy Game was Andrew Chez with 38 points and a best gross of 78. This was on count back (Back 9 … Andrew Chez 21, Barry Cousins 18) from Barry Cousins who was runner up also with 38 points and a gross of 101. Full results are below :


Results – Amverton Cove – 26th May 2015

17 punters mustered at Amverton Cove for the May Monthly Medal in balmy weather and we all got off to a prompt start off 2 tee boxes and we were round in very good time.  

Winner on the day was the Desert Fox, Bernard Romahn, OCB from Henning Therkelson and both with 38 points.  Lowest gross was again Geoff McLaws with 81 and the most gross was shared between Barry Cousins and Andrew Robinson both with 112.  Andrew’s new clubs really making a difference!  And his final score not boosted by 5 putting on one green!  Details below:

Lunch was taken at the regular restaurant over the bridge on the right – and very good it was too when the food eventually arrived!  Although attending the lunch is not compulsory, it is an integral part of the day and all are encouraged to participate.  A tad irking are those indicating they are coming for the lunch and then don’t turn up!  This leads to confusion with table arrangements and ordering.

I was in the first flight and we made excellent time around the course finishing by 11:15am with none in front and after two holes no sight of anyone behind.
After the game we had lunch at the seafood restaurant at the bridge from Carey Island. Drinks were kindly sponsored by Stuart Taylor who had a birthday a few days previously.
