Results – Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club – 2nd August 2016

IMG_9216

The weather and temperature were perfect for a morning’s golf up at Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club. We had 19 Loose Cannons today and we all got off on various tee boxes to ease congestion which was good resulting in all of us returning after the game at much the same time. The course was in good condition and there is still evidence of ongoing works in bunkers and fairways so at least they are taking some effort now to maintain the course.

It was a beautiful cool start as we teed off and only got a little warmer by the time we finished. Sadly no evidence or sounds from the resident gibbons.

We had lunch at our usual Restaurant 126 back down the hill in Kampung Bukit Tinggi with good food and cheap beer. With the carry over from the golf registration and a kind donation by Bernard Romahn for his eagle (Many thanks Bernard) we only had to contribute RM10 for lunch …. excellent deal.

Results

We had 3 players tied on 40 points today at the top of the table. The winner was Reinli Tan with 97 for 40 points, on count back from Allan Wright with 95 for 40. Allan took 2nd place on count back from Bernard Romahn with 84 for 40 and won a nice bottle of Portugese wine kindly donated by Ricardo Castro. Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an 81.

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.

Report

It was a very cool and overcast day at Bukit Tinggi making it a very pleasant morning’s golf …. it was almost bordering on the cold side dare I say! 17 players in 5 flights headed out from staggered tee boxes and most made it round by 12:30pm or so. It stayed overcast and cool for the whole morning and in fact during our last few holes we had some drizzly rain.
Welcome to a new player this week – Charles Blanchet introduced by Roger Surieux and also a welcome to Tony’s guest Iain visiting from UK. A big welcome back to Glen returning to Loose Cannons after a lengthy period off convalescing from his appendicitis op.
The course was unfortunately looking somewhat untidy and unkempt and the greens a bit bumpy so is really in need of some attention. They seem to be digging up and clearing many areas next to the course which makes it look unsightly.
After the game we headed back down the hill to Kampong Bukit Tinggi and Restoran 126 for some lunch and beers kindly sponsored by Allan McNicoll who was celebrating his 100th game with Cannons.
Results
The winner today was Stuart Taylor with 39 points (and best gross of 83) with runner up Tony Morris on 38 points (89 gross). Full results below:

Report

Excellent weather yet again, this time at Berjaya Hills. Everyone enjoyed this very picturesque course, although the conditions were challenging, with a lot of run and a sadistic green keeper, looking at some of the pin positions…!! We got the benefits of the fax booking with the starter
giving us 4 tee boxes, for the 6 full flights, and apart from a rogue Korean pair, we all started on time.

The winner was Stuart Taylor with 85 for 40 points. In second place was Andre Holm with a 91 for 39 points. Full results attached. Please note on the score sheet there is now a cross check column for the stableford points. Hopefully by highlighting the small errors, will make sure we all check our scores before the cards are submitted. Incidentally I always check the first 2 place scores before
announcing the results..!

An excellent good value Lunch was had by most “down the hill at 126” as usual.

Results – Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi – 25th January, 2011



12 golfers pitched up for the Trophy Game at Berjaya Hills in cool overcast conditions. I say 12 pitched up but 3 of these, 2 of whom were relying on Reinli for a lift, arrived at 8:45; Reinli having gone back to sleep after his early morning call from Tom. So, 2 flights teed off at 08:00 and the 3rd an hour later and got caught in the rain at the last hole. Reinli, you should be publicly pissed on. The course was in good condition but rather wet. Nevertheless it played well and we didn’t play winter rules although we perhaps should have. The traumatic drive to try and make up time and the soaking on the last didn’t however stop Reinli from collecting the Trophy with 38 points plus 1 bonus point for a total of 39. Nor did it stop John Laidley shooting 79 for lowest gross. The runner up was Tony Morris with 35 + 3 and the most golf…just…was played by Raymond.
M&M was taken at the Remember126 Restoran in the village and while the food was just OK the price was very OK. Thanks to Andrew and Richard for finding this place for us. Their sense of duty knows no bounds. We used to use one tooth fatty but the last time we were there the food was rubbish and the price outrageous so Fatty is out and 126 is in.
