Results – Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club – 12th September, 2018

IMG_2137

Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club is wonderfully located in the hills north east of KL offering scenic views and cool weather. It can be a real pleasure to play up here …. but not today. The course has been sadly neglected and with almost a total lack of maintenance the course is a total disgrace. Tees are shoddy, uneven and dug up in places, the fairways are untidy with many dug up areas due to wild boar activity, bunkers are very messy and in need of repair and re-sanding and the greens are potholed and patchy making putting a random lottery. The 17th green was totally sanded with large piles of sand at the edges of the green making it very difficult to make your approach and to putt.  The hole itself was totally misshapen and ragged as shown below:

All in all very shoddy so I do not think we will be returning to this course for a long time unless the management get their act together to fix all the problems.

We had 5 flights today and we managed to tee off on separate holes to try and speed up play. Most players got round in a reasonable time and after the game we drove back down the hill to Kampong Tinggi to our old favourite 126 Restaurant.

Results – Berjaya Hills – 8th March 2016

20160308_100535_resizedOn a beautiful morning of light high cloud and a nice breeze, 16 LC’s teed it up at Berjaya Hills on time, after a smooth check in. Jeff Pearce, having been very cold the last time he played here, arrived suitably clad in a heavy sweater!!!….which was not needed.
The course
Berjaya Hills is always a bit of a gamble as to the condition of the course but yesterday it was in good overall condition and a pleasure to play. The first 3 or 4 greens on the front 9 were poor and bumpy but the rest were fair. There were a lot of patches of wild boar grubbing but mercifully not on the greens and the bunkers were OK but some rakes are needed. The Gibbons were noticeable by their absence which was a pity but our flight had the pleasure of the company of a Pig Tailed Macaque who ambled across in front of the 6th tee box as we were teeing up and then sauntered up to the green with an occasional disdainful glance over his shoulder at us intruders. Very nice.
The winner with an outstanding 90 for 46 points was Brian Stubbs, cut 4 strokes. The R/U ocb was Richard Moss with 41 points from Bernhard Romahn. The lowest gross was 78 by Geoff McLaws. The full results below:

Lunch
15 golfers attended lunch at the newly renovated Restoran 126 where we enjoyed some inexpensive, slow to arrive grub and a lot of equally inexpensive Tiger Beer.

Cannons all,

Berjaya Hills is always a test and so it proved again yesterday; a tough track made even harder by the very soft conditions with several balls plugged and lost. Please read the “Point of order” at the foot of this report. This was a pity as although it has been reasonably dry lately, the heavy downpours we have experienced in recent days in KL obviously affected Bukit Tinggi as well.
The weather however was perfect; cool and bright with crystal clear air and we were entertained by the usual troop of Gibons, heard but not seen.
The course was in fairly good condition spoilt a little by the greens that are infested with patches of cow grass and weed but there were signs that this is being treated with a herbicide so bodes well for the future.
With several regulars away and others finding it a tad too far (it’s no further at 45 mins than several other courses we play) only 13 LC’s started and had the course to themselves.
The winner was Simon Compton with 41 points and the R/Up was Hans Berger with 35 points. The lowest gross was 85 by Geoff Parslow and the most golf played was 124 by Alan Holgate. 
Simon is cut 5 strokes and Hans 1 stroke.  
After the game 10 of us went to Restoran 126 in Bukit Tinggi Village where we celebrated Andrew Robinsons recent 63rd birthday. Thanks are extended to Andrew for the Wine and to Simon for contributing his RM50 winnings to the pot due to his absence from the lunch. And coincidentally the bill came to RM311 which was exactly the amount in the kitty.
A point of order.It was reported that Ray Funnell unilaterally opted to play ‘Winter Rules’. This option had not been announced before play began and therefore Ray’s score, had it been in the running, would not have counted. But it does raise again the frequent question of whether to play Winter Rules (‘lift, clean & place’).
Since we often encounter fairways that are very wet and soft and in the pursuit of an enjoyable game, Loose Cannons will, as a local rule, play ‘Winter Rules’ for all future games.
