Results – Bangi Golf Club – 10th March 2015


We had 20 players today making a full 5 flights. We got off on 2 tee boxes on Putrajaya and Bangi Nines at 8:00am sharp with good weather albeit pretty hot by the end of the 5 hour round (See note below on slow play). The course I’ll say was looking somewhat shabby and the greens were very bald, bumpy and patch making putting a major exercise for many.

After the game 18 of us retired to Restoran East of the Highway for lunch. The food was not as good as usual and the bill seems more expensive …. perhaps a reflection of the hot day and the amount of beer drunk.


1st place today was a tie on 40 points but Robert Mulliss (Gross of 99) got the award as Charles Blanchet (Gross 94) had less then the required 5 games for an official handicap. Tied 3rd place was Iain Wise and Jeff Pearce on 38 points. Best gross of the day was Paul Geddes with an 87. Full results tabulated below:


Slow Play

We suffered somewhat today from slow play on the course. Now although this was probably due to slower groups ahead of the LC group it is a timely reminder to all players to try and speed up play so we can have a round somewhat less than 5 hours, giving us the advantage perhaps of a longer lunch at the restaurant. All players complain about slow play but rarely admit that they themselves have slow tendencies. Everyone should be aware of time keeping and 1) be ready at your ball with a club to play the next shot, 2) don’t stand around on the green comparing scores or counting scores holding up the group behind, 3) if you cannot score please pick up, 4) park buggies in an optimum location to minimise the walk to the ball or green ….. these are just some of the things I noticed today so please take note so we all have an efficient round of golf.
Number of Clubs
Also players note that the maximum clubs in your bag is 14. Any clubs over that will incur a 2 penalty stroke on each hole that the extra club or clubs are carried.


Results – Bangi Golf Club – 23rd December 2014


19 players attended on a wet morning. Registrations was easily completed and we played the Kajang and Bangi Nines. About half the players came adorned with red hats. During the second nine the rain became heavy resulting in several cannons heading for the club house. Those that continued on recorded very respectable scores. The winner was Geoff Parslow with a par round of 72 for a massive 45 points. Runner up was Ray Funnel with a 92 for 42 points.

Due to the rain delays and Christmas commitments only 6 attended the excellent lunch at the East of Highway restaurant. In Geoff’s absence from the lunch it was good of him in true Christmas spirit  to donate his winnings back to the kitty.

Many thanks to Iain Wise for doing the arrangements on the day at the club.

Results – Bangi Golf Club – 7th October 2014


We had 16 Cannons for today’s game at Bangi and today we had everyone at the club by 7:30, we were registered and paid by 7:35 and in the buggies and off to the tee box by 7:45 …. an all time record.

Weather was hazy and rather humid making it very sticky. Course was in good shape and the greens were very quick and rather unpredictable making for many of us taking far too many putts. The course was quiet and we got round by 12:15pm.

Barry Cousins won the most inventive attire award of the day …. managing to tailor his golf shorts apparently from the canvas of an old deck chair!

Stuart Taylor won the most bizarre shot of the day award with a tee shot off the 3rd hole (Par 5) on the Kajang Course which headed straight for a large tree on the left (Stuart’s attempt to cut the corner) …. with a large thud all of us assumed it was lost in the jungle …. but a good 4-5 seconds later as the next person was moving to the tee box the ball landed about 6 feet behind us …. having rebounded from the tree some 100m away. Stuart then proceeded to take a 3-wood to the lucky ball, hit his second over the trees onto the fairway round the corner and eventually bogeyed the hole!!


There were some good scores today on this rather short course with a few players in the 40’s. The winner however with a magnificent round of 99 and 45 Stableford points was Richard Moss once again showing that our highest handicap golfer in the group can win! Well done Richard. Runner up was Andrew Robinson with a mere 44 points. Best gross of the day was Andrew Chez with a round of 80, including one eagle and a couple of birdies. He did however completely #%$#@ up his Stableford score …. declaring 40 points …. reduced to the correct figure of 36 points by the Convenor.

Results – Bangi Golf Resort – 8th April 2014


It’s been many years since I have played Bangi so it was a joy to return to this club and see how it had matured. The course is in very good condition with well maintained cow grass fairways and very good (and fast) greens. We played off the white tees as normal Loose Cannons policy but if we play here again we would play the blues as the whites are a little short.
The clubhouse needs some attention and is certainly showing its age in the changing rooms and showers. The restaurant now is very basic with no beer – hence our choice for post game lunch offsite.
We had 22 players confirmed and we had one last minute pull out by Mr Moss who was unwell and unable to leave the close proximity of his toilet facilities. So that left the awkward 21 players – 3 flights of 3 balls and 3 flights of 4 balls. After some confusion at the start, caused by the overzealous organisers at the club who had printed score cards for everyone with the incorrect flight allocations not knowing that we randomised the flights just prior to tee-off. Nevertheless we all got off at around 7:45am or just after and were relatively unimpeded round the course completing the round by 12:30 or so.
We welcomed back Peter Jackson (Jacko) who has not played since last year with guest Willi Kramheller. We also saw the return of Mike Han to the fold and welcomed a new guest Brian Sage who was sampling our golf society – lets hope he will decide to join us on a regular basis.
We had some good scores today given the short course with 8 players playing to handicap or better. The winner today with a magnificent 92 for 43 points was Brian Stubbs – well done. Second on count back was Peter Jackson with a score of 100 for 38. Best gross of the day was Paul Geddes with 86.
We had lunch at the Restoran East of the Highway (which as pointed out by Peter Jackson is actually WEST of the highway!) Only 16 players made lunch with 2 not showing up after earlier commitment – Mr Moneybags will be approaching these 2 players next week to contribute to the lunch costs which had all been pre-ordered. The lunch was pretty good with plenty of food given the no-shows all washed down with beer and wine. From the restaurant it was a short drive back home. 
We will keep this course on our regular list of playing courses as it is in good condition, is close to town and now we have a reasonable lunch venue post-game.



Next Game – Bangi Golf Resort – 8th April 2014

In an endeavour to play some alternative courses that we have not played at for a long time we shall play at Bangi Golf Resort next week on 8th April. I have tentatively booked 5 flights for a tee-of at 7:45am from 2 tee boxes. Cost will be RM120 per player.
As this club has a rather poor (and dry!) restaurant and the surrounding area is also rather devoid of any good restaurants we shall be having lunch  offsite at a Chinese restaurant about 20 mins drive away on the way back to KL. Details are as follows:

Restoran East Of Highway

1-1, Jalan SR 8/4, Taman Putra Indah, Serdang Raya, Seri Kembangan, 43300, Seri Kembangan, Selangor
TEL: +60 3-8943 3017
Two tables have been booked and food pre-ordered for 1:00pm to 1:30pm approx.
Directions are attached but simply are:
1) Leave Bangi Golf Resort and head back to N-S highway and head north back to KL
2) After driving through Sungai Besi toll keep left and take first road signposted to Serdang which loops back round left to Jalan Serdang Raya
3) Drive past Caltex station, road turns right then take next right and restaurant is directly on left. Park where you can.
Note: The Google maps directions show an extra loop going round the roundabout at the racecourse but the road setup has changed so you will head left off highway then go directly onto Jalan Serdang Raya.

Results – Bangi Golf Club – 17th August 2010

Nine players turned up for the game at Bangi on August 17th. Hopefully no one turned up on the 18th – which was the date on the original announcement!

Being true golfing “professionals” we took one look at the short white tees and decided, almost to a man, to play off the blues. As the scores indicate this was a woeful idea and should never, ever be repeated!!

The course was generally OK with the exception of the bunkers. Those which were not full of water had hard compacted sand which made play difficult to say the least and led to questions being asked about playing the ball as it lies.

Anyway, out of the nine 4 broke 100 – albeit with three players on 99.

The winner was Zack Preston with a fine 95 for 35 points following up on his second place last week. Second was Ian Geekie 99 for 32 points. Zack is cut 4 and Ian 1. Best gross was also returned by Zack and I played most golf again with 118.


1. Zack Preston            95      35 points
2. Ian Geekie               99      33
3. Bernhard Rohman    99      31
4. Hans Berger             99      29
5. Kevin Wigg             100     24

7= Glen Wombwell      107     19
7= Dick Staufer           116     19

Lunch was taken at the Club as the fees included food vouchers.
