Results – Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort – 16th January 2018

IMG_7092

I am always puzzled as to why Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort has the word “Bukit” as there is not much bukit in the course being a very flat and generally boring course. However despite that we had a rather pleasant morning at this course with 19 players heading off from tee box 10 due to a competition starting on tee box 1. There was not much run on the course due to the recent rain and some of the greens were rather slow. The weather was wonderful and cool making it a pleasant round.

I had the pleasure of playing with our newest member Vince Main who I believe has been misspelling his name. Having hit his ball numerous time into the water drain hazards today I believe his name should be Vince Drain!

We had lunch post game at the New O&S Seafood Restaurant in Bukit Kemuning which was good (thank you to Barry Cousins for the ordering!).

Results

The winner today (on count back) and on a real winning streak with 3 back-to-back wins now was Hans Berger with 100 or 36 points. Runners up also with 36 points were Andrew Robinson and Iain Wise. Best gross of the day Was Niall Murray with a 79. Bernard was recorded as a No Return due to lack of card submission. Full results below :

We had 5 full flights today at Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Club. We got off sharply at 8:00am from two tee boxes under good weather conditions. The course was in fair condition but there were quite a few bare patches on the fairways (as indicated by a notice in our buggies) and also some re-turfed areas around some of the greens which were GUR. The greens were also a little patchy and bumpy.

After the game 16 of us took lunch at the New O&S Seafood Restaurant in Kota Kemuning with some excellent food pre-ordered by Barry Cousins.

Results

The winner this week was Bernard Romahn with an excellent round of 79 for 41 points. Joint 2nd place was Bernie Schobert with 82 for 40 points and Aftab Ahmad with 91 for 40 points. Best gross of the day Was Niall Murray with a 78 and most golf went to David Evans with a 108. Full results below:

After a painless and efficient registration, due to Hans getting us pre-registered, 23 of us got off on the two 9’s at 8:00am. We had one casualty with Kevin Wiggins calling off this morning unfortunately. David Savage was late but managed to get to the tee before before his flight started. The course was in reasonable condition although a lot of people complained about the bumpy greens. Weather was reasonable and only in the last few holes did it get hot and steamy.

The 3 flights that went off the 1st tee were held up by a slow flight ahead of them causing a rather slow round for them.

After the game we took lunch at the O&S Seafood Restaurant in Kota Kemuning with plenty of cold beers to wash away any thoughts of any bad golf. Martin Walsh was celebrating his birthday so he kindly pitched in Rm200 to the pot for drinks – Happy Birthday Martin and cheers!

Results

Today’s winner with 39 points and a gross of 89 was Tony Morris. Runner up was Hans Berger with 94 for 37 points. Best gross of the day was carded by Geoff McLaws with an 82. Full results below:

We had 5 full flights today at Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort. With another large group of yellow shirt golfers also playing, our start was a little delayed and the second nine was also held up a little because of this large group playing. However the course was in reasonable shape other than some bumpy greens and a few bare and mossy patches around the fairways. Weather was good and very hot by the time we finished.

After the game we had an excellent lunch at the nearby Mayflower restaurant with 15 players attending.

Results

Some good scores today as expected. The clear winner was Ricardo Castro with an excellent 81 for 44 points (cut 8). Runner up was Martin Walsh with a 82 for 42 points. Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with a 78. Full results below:

Results – Bukit Kemuning – 25th October 2016

20 LC’s got off to a slightly earlier start at Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort after a very easy registration and with wonderful weather and few hold-ups we were all round in just over 4 hours. The course was in reasonable condition….the only complaint being the slow and bumpy greens, but judging by the scores, this didn’t detract from scoring with 10 of us playing to or better than our h/caps.
Bukit Kemuning has to be the best value courses we play and with Mayflower literally just round the corner, we will use it more frequently in future.

Results

The winner of the October Trophy with an outstanding (slightly fortunate) 86 for 48 points was Iain Wise. Iain you are cut 12 strokes. Runner up was myself (Mike Smith) with 87 for 46 points ahead of Dave Evans 97 for 43. The lowest gross was 81 by Geoff McLaws.

We don’t have a COTD award in Loose Cannons but if we had it would have gone to Erol who, after taking his clubs from his bag at the 14th green announced “Shit. Where’s my putter? I’ve lost my putter!” ……….It was in his hand!!!!!!
Lunch was at The Mayflower where 14 of us enjoyed a meal ordered for 20 while consuming 32 large Tiger’s at the slightly exorbitant price of RM18 making this an expensive but very enjoyable luncheon.

We were not held up at all during the round so were finished in 4 hours.

After the game we retired to the Mayflower Restaurant in Le Garden Hotel for an excellent lunch washed down with 32 bottles of beer plus an extra 4 for dessert!

Results

Results – Bukit Kemuning – 19th April 2016

With yours truly (Mike Smith) getting out of the wrong side of the bed; taking a phone call while driving, missing the turn and getting lost and arriving late, registration of 19 starters went smoothly enough and we eventually got started off 2 tee boxes only 5 mins late.
The recent dry weather was showing at Bukit Kemuning Golf Resort with yellow, rock hard fairways, some near bare tee boxes and firm, bumpy greens but with buggy on course and their very cheap “Early Bird” promotion this is still a decent venue. Oh and BTW the pin position on the 6th was ridiculous and the talking point at lunch. I wonder how many of us 4 putted this one? The weather was dry and breezy and not unpleasant and we were round in 4 hours.
The winner continuing his recent good form was Geoff McLaws with 76 for 43 points, cut 7 strokes. The runner-up was Hans Berger with 91 for 38 points with Glen Wombwell 3rd with 101 for 37 points. The lowest gross was of course Geoff with his superb 76. The full result is attached.
Lunch was taken at the nearby Mayflower Restaurant where 13 golfers enjoyed an excellent meal washed down with copious quantities of cold Tiger…..and water for Barry who is on a strict diet. Get well soon Barry. Hans Berger celebrated becoming a great granddad by chucking 250 into the lunch kitty. Congratulations Hans.

Today we had 5 full flights at Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort on a fine humid morning. We got off from 2 tee boxes behind some other players, slightly later than expected, but we made good time around the course. Weather was good and the course was fair but with rather bumpy and unpredictable greens.

We had lunch at the nearby Mayflower Restaurant which was very good – a big thank you to Barry Cousins for arranging this.

Results

Results – Bukit Kemuning – 10th November 2015

Sixteen players teed off under clear skies and perfect weather conditions, very different from the last time we played this venue when play was abandoned after 5 holes. The course was in poor condition with soggy fairways and uneven and bumpy greens. We all teed off from the first, play was not quick and all the players were back in to the clubhouse by 1-15pm. The scoring was not great, with the exception of today’s winner Peter Kenyon who shot 95 for 41 points, a Stewards Enquiry is still ongoing into this remarkable fete. Runner up and best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with a score of 81 for 35 points. It was good to welcome guests Carl Wombwell  and Emlyn Jones, who was so overwhelmed that he turned up for play with his shirt inside out, a good sign proving that he already possesses the attributes of a good Loose Cannon. 
Lunch was taken at O & S restaurant where fifteen of us squeezed around one table, very cosy. Many thanks to Barry for booking and ordering the excellent food.

Report – Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort – 8th September 2015

Four flights convened at Bukit Kemuning this morning …. well almost four flights …. Robert Mulliss came rolling up at 8:10 as we were on the first tee with the first group already half way up the first …… some feeble excuse about his GPS taking him the wrong way via some back roads in Shah Alam.

We only got in about 5 holes when the rain came and eventually after waiting for 30 – 45 mins at the rest hit we abandoned play …. the first time in many a year.
