Results – Bukit Beruntung – 16th February 2015

Report

This week we decided to head north to Bukit Beruntung which we had not played for many years. It was listed in the Top Premier book at a bargain rate of RM50 but when calling to book I was informed there was a special rate of RM45. Later we found that this did not include insurance which we had to pay separately but still a very economically attractive rate. The club has 2 18 hole courses – we played the better?? East Course and with the Saujana group which had taken over this club some years back we perhaps naively thought it may have improved.
The clubhouse is a very large and ominous looking building which is now in a bad state of disrepair. An outhouse which stored all the grass cutting equipment had recently been in a major fire and was completely burnt out …. insurance job??
There were 13 of us …. again sadly let down by last minute pull outs which created extra costs for a number of 1/2 buggy charges. 
We all got off on 2 separate tee boxes at just before 8:00am and the first 9 holes were relatively cool, but got progressively hotter as the morning went on. The course was badly cut up by wild boars and the green surrounds were in pretty bad shape as were the bunkers. You really had to keep on the fairway as there was no relief by slicing or drawing onto other fairways – each hole was individually carved through the palm oil plantations so once of the fairway your ball was well and truly gone.
The greens were very soft and spongy with many bumps and fairly slow – particularly one green which had been left to grow and resembled the texture and nature of my ex-mother-in-law’s thick shag pile Axminster carpet.
However the course was extremely scenic and had some interesting holes as can be seen in the photos below.
We all got round in reasonable time being held up a little by a number of Koreans who were all playing the course. We then headed off and had an excellent lunch at Restoran recommended by Rein Li Tan – who also ordered the food. The Mongolian pork ribs were outstanding and a double portion was quickly ordered
Barry cousins was celebrating his 300th game today – well done Barry – and he kindly sponsored the drinks. Allan McNicoll was having his last Loose Cannons game prior to heading to South Africa so he kindly bought lunch for everyone. Thanks Allan and Barry!

Loose Cannons All,

Klaus called in sick so fourteen of us played Bkt Beruntung GCR yesterday and as a surprise we got to play the West instead of the East which we tested last week. The West was a different animal in comparison is it was more open, less soggy ie more run, more water and some patches of bare soil on the second nine fairways although the first nine had some very nice charming holes. In general though it could do with some grass cutting here and there as well as more sand in some of the bunkers. In comparison to all other courses we are playing it’s not a bad course at all, it’s more a matter of getting used to how to play it I think.

The food at the Garden Terrace was very good but it took a bit long to get it, but that’s how it may be when one order individual dishes.

This time Alan’s guest Chee Wah Tsang could come he claimed 24hcp which we accept, next time you play at 25, please feel welcome Chee Wah Tsang.

So how did it go, John had the highest and the lowest score 42 points (with four bonus points) respective 88 gross closely followed by me, John is cut 4, sorry no monthly trophy at hand lah. Second came Andre also 42 but with less points on the second nine, cut 1. Most golf was played by Alan H at 120 closely followed by Allan M. For the matter of stats only four players had below 30 points.
