Results – Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort – 9th July 2019

Today we had only 11 players with 3 flights teeing off sharp before 8:00am. Given all the rain we had yesterday the course was in very good condition with minimal soggy patches. The greens were in very good shape and probably the best we have seen them to date.

The course was quiet this morning so we were all finished by around 12 noon. Weather conditions were very good and surprisingly cool for most of the round.

We had a good lunch at O&S restaurant after the game although the bill seemed rather more expensive than normal – maybe worth looking at alternatives or being a little more careful on what we order.

We were joined at lunch by Barry Cousins and Andrew Robinson.

Stuart Taylor had a “wardrobe malfunction” after the game with his change of clothes T-shirt ripping down one complete side. Not wanting to spend RM190 on a new shirt from the pro shop he boldly went to lunch in his used golf shirt much to the disgust of his adjoining members at the table whose nasal orifices were impinged upon.

Results

The winner again this week was Hans Berger with another great score of 96 for 41 points (did someone mention drug test!!). Runner up with a mere 86 for 36 points was Stuart Taylor. Full results below:

With 4 full flights we teed off on the first hole around 7:40am after the usual lengthy registration process. Weather was good and the course conditions were pretty good overall. Greens a little slow …. good excuse for the missed putts.

We were finished by 12:30pm then had a good lunch at O&S Restaurant closeby.

Results

The winner today with 91 for 41 points was Iain Wise with Bernard Romahn runner up with 83 (Best gross) for 39 points. Full results below:

Results – Bukit Kemining – 2nd April 2019

Except for the walking members we were almost alone at Bkt Kemuning, both at the registration and on the course but after an hour or two it was quite few a players. .

Second nine was not ready to play so all four flights teed off from hole one. Course in good shape except for the sanded greens which was all of them. Weather a bit sticky at first however later we got a nice breeze, so overall a nice day out.

All except two came for the post game lunch at Restaurant New O&S Seafood, the food was very good as it usually is there, especially with a cold Tiger to it.

Results

Winner as many times before Tony Morris with 43 points, he had the lowest gross as well with 83. Second Allan Wright 38 and Martin Belderink third with 37 points.

We had an early start this morning at Bukit Kemuning at 7:30am sharp with our 4 flights heading off from the 1st tee. The morning was beautiful with clear blue skies and as the day wore on it became very hot. However the course was in good condition and we were not held up at all meaning a reasonable finish around 12:30pm then off to the O&S Restaurant for some food and much needed cold beverages.

Results

The winner today with a great score of 85 for 42 points was Stan Constantinides. Runner up was Brian Stubbs with 97/39 and 3rd place went to Joe Lacy with 91/38. Best gross of the day was Stan with his 85. Full results below :

Results – Bukit Kemuning – 7th November 2018

12 Loose Cannons played a very soggy Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort today, as Tuesday was Deepavali.  Despite tee-ing off at ~7.30am, because the course was apparently heavily booked, the 3 flights were taken to the short par 3 Hole #13 and Flight 1 teed-off from that hole.  However, the starter took the other 2 flights on to #14 so they both teed-off from that hole, putting flight 1 behind the other 2 flights !  This was then compounded when we crossed over to #1 where other flights were waiting, so that another flight was introduced between our flights 3 & 1.  Anyway, we eventually all finished around the same time, after a rather slow round.

After heavy overnight & recent rain, the lower parts of the course were very water-logged, with a lot of standing water, and some bunkers were more like lakes. However further rain, which threatened towards the end of the round, held off so the more elevated parts of the course, played later, were generally drier & better.

Despite these conditions, scoring was generally good.   The winner today, celebrating his birthday, with a lowest gross of 81 for 40 points, was Ricardo Castro. Second was next week’s convenor, Martin Belderink & third, the late Bernard Romahn!

Ten of us then adjourned to our regular O&S Seafood restaurant, where we were joined by Barry Cousins, now sadly retired from regular golf.  The restaurant was very busy, presumably post-Deepavali, so the food was a bit slow to arrive.  Luckily the beer arrived much more quickly and overall the meal was relatively inexpensive, and helped by a Rm200 birthday contribution from Ricardo (thanks !).

We had 5 full flights today at Bukit kemuning and we got off on two 9’s at 8:00am. The course was not in the best of condition – many bare patches on the fairway and the greens were very sand and bumpy. Weather was good though and we all managed to finsh at a reasonable time (all except the last flight who took another 45 mins to reach the restaurant!). We had lunch at the New O&S Seafood Restaurant in Bukit Kemuning with most people attending – food was good and beer was plentiful. It was a little more expensive than normal (RM70/head) – maybe we were all just thirsty.

Results

The winner today with a magnificent performance was David Evans with a score of 95 for 45 points. Runner up was Bernard Romahn with the best grosss of the day (78) for 43 points. Full results below:

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:
