Glenn’s, making 14 players in 2 flights of 4 and 2 of 3. Aftab was a guest of
Hans and has given his signaling details for inclusion in the weekly
circulation. Darren from Norwich was introduced by Tom as a visitor. 5 Premier
vouchers and 1 SSG card were used to reduce the overall cost, for the general
benefit which was much appreciated by all attendant Cannons.
The clement conditions of Bukit Tinggi were found to be very conducive and the
Berjaya Hills course was in tiptop condition. Indeed some Loose Cannons
expressed a desire to return next Tuesday. The first flight of 3 teed off at
0800 precisely and caught up with a Korean 4 ball at the 8th who waited by the
9th tee to wave the 3 ball through. A leisurely round was completed at 1130
with little sign of other golfers, before adjourning to the lounge to await
the other 3 flights. Noon and noon thirty came and went as did a couple of
buckets of tiger. At 1300 the Korean flight appeared at the 18th tee. Shortly
after they finished their round our 3 ball appeared at the 18th tee and
eventually by 1330 Cannons assault of the course had been accomplished. The
Oldest Member made some comments about slow play in his flight.
11 intrepid golfers then adjourned to Kampong Bukit Tinggi to consume 220RM of
makan and 214 of minum, mostly Tiger. There being no pig knuckle available
Pork Ribs, Venison x2, S&S Chicken, Butter Prawns, Yam Basket, Baked Bringel
and Egg Fau yu x3 were served and as the members considered the price
excessive the landlord provided 2 large bottles of Tiger gratis.
With ProTem Convener Twan Andrew returning from Half Term Hols this week we
await his decision on the course for Tuesday Kajang Hills was mooted.

A record turnout of 16 players today at Berjaya Hills G&CC. We teed off at 8am sharp with four groups, play being a bit slow given a few other slow players on the course. However the air was cool with early morning mist and cloud and the scenery very pleasant … some of us admiring the scenery from somewhat different angles on many of the undulating and hilly holes.
- Ray Funnel for leaving his car partner at the golf club whilst rushing off for his lunch
- Raymond Keys for not ensuring that there were no Koreans on the course
- Raymond Keys for ordering the rather poor pork knuckles which turned out to be trotters!
- Erol Akinci for adding up the scores on the card and being amazed that the front 9 and back 9 were identical for all players as he had looked at the carried over scores from the front 9
- Stuart Taylor for failing to video Tony’s fantastic putt on the final green – claimed 40ft …. but I think not!
…… any others may be considered and as an added bonus/complication I will be setting up the poll so you can vote for more than one person – this should make things very interesting!
