Results – Danau Golf Club – 5th September 2017

IMG_5280

There were only 3 flights this week for our outing at Danau Golf Club. We all set off at 8:00am sharp from the 10th tee over the difficult terrain of Danau – nothing much has changed with heavy thick rough making it difficult finding balls and playing from – best policy was to try and stay on the fairway. The greens were in good condition however albeit a little tricky with the slopes and the hole positions.

Weather was good and although the skies darkend near the end of the round we got finished before the rain came in later. It is a tough course and most players confirmed it was not one of their favourite courses.

We welcomed a new player today – Eric van Donselaar – introduced by Emlyn Jones. We hope to see him again.

Lunch after the game was at Restoran East of Highway which was excellent as usual.

Results

Kaz Takita was the winner today with 97 for 36 winning on count back from Hans Berger with 98 for 36 – well done Kaz. He didn’t make lunch so his winnings went into the pot to pay for lunch … cheers Kaz!

Best gross of the day was Stuart Taylor with 93 and most golf was Martin Belderink. Full results below:

Results – Danau Golf Club – 15th November 2016

img_1020Looking back at the last time we played Danau Golf Club … it was February 2016 … and it was duly noted at that time how tough this course was … how tough the rough was … and how this caused slow play due to players looking for multiple lost balls. It was the same story when we played Danau today. We had 5 flights, all off one 9 to start, unfortunately and it took us 5 hours to complete the round …. with no one in front of our group … so no excuses … it was slow play by our groups. Something we should consider and try to get better at …. even in tough conditions such as Danau.

The weather was good but enduring 5 hours out on the course it gets hotter and hotter and may players were very weary by the time we finished. The fairways were reasonable and the greens ok …. but again the rough was very thick and unforgiving. 

We struggled round and 11 of us made lunch at the East of Highway Restaurant where we had a very good lunch as usual and helped immensely with a beer funding contribution of RM200 from Ray Funnell who is shortly celebrating his 70th Birthday. Happy Birthday Ray …. and thanks for the much needed beers.

Results

As usual at this tough course the scores were high. The winner however broke his handicap … Mike Smith with a 95 for 37 points (cut 4). Runner up was Kevin Wiggins with 96 for 33. Mike Williams and Tony Morris shared 3rd spot and best gross went to Geoff McLaws with a 79. Full scores below:

Results – Danau Golf Club – 16th February 2016

IMG_7134

With a last minute cancellation from one member we had 22 Cannons today for the game at Danau Golf Club teeing off from two separate tee boxes sharp at 8:00am. Weather was very good with clear blue skies making for a rather hot finish. The course was in good shape … but tough. The rough was ROUGH and the greens very tricky making for more than one 3-putt during our round.

With balls going into the heavy rough made things slow as people looked in vain for their balls. Another rules reminder for players ….. you have 5 minutes to look for a lost ball after which time you should replay your last shot or scratch the hole to maintain your flight time keeping.

However we all finish by 1pm and then headed off for lunch at Restoran East of Highway … our favourite haunt in this part of the country. We had two tables for lunch with 16 attending.

Results

Scores were generally low but our winner today with 38 points and a gross of 100 was Allan Wright. Runner up was Martin Walsh with an 89 for 37 points. Best gross of the day was Andrew Cseszko with an 87. Flight no 5 comprising Bernard Romahn, Roger Surieux, Peter Kenyon and Andrew Robinson failed to submit a card at the lunch venue so they were all recorded a no return. Everyone must remember to submit a card and it is advised that each buggy keep a card so scores can be cross-checked before submission …. don’t rely on someone else to submit the card ….. but this has been said on numerous time before.

Results – Danau Golf Club – 4th August 2015

It was quite busy at Danau this morning but after an efficient and problem free check in we all teed off at around 8:10 to 8:30 from the 1st 9. The first 3 holes at this course are very testing and the tough nature of this course was certainly obvious in the scores posted. Conditions were good, the weather relatively cool and the course was in good condition. Greens were very tricky though especially with the slopes and quite fast speed – on one green all 4 of us putted off the green! This is a relatively cheap course as well making it quite an economical outing.
We retired to the Restoran East of the Highway post game for some great food and much needed cold beers. We gave our thoughts of speedy recovery to Mike Smith as we tucked into our special plate of spare ribs a’ la Smith!

Results

Scores were not dramatic today as expected at this course with only one player breaking his handicap. The winner with 37 points (gross of 98) was Brian Stubbs and the runner up was Barry Cousins with an on-handicap round of 36 points (gross of 102). Best gross of the day was Stuart Taylor with an 88.

Results – Danau Golf Club – 21st October 2014

Report

It’s been at least 4 years since Cannons played Danau so we returned with the promise of renovated greens via information from Geoff Parslow. This course has always been a tough and challenging course with some rather interesting holes. We had a tee time of 8:00am but it was a slow start as our 5 flights were all off one tee box and there were players in front … and it was slow going after that waiting on almost every hole making it a 5 hour round.

The course was good and although the greens were good they were soft and spongy. Putting on the sloping greens against the grain was also something of a a challenge.

We eventually finished about 1:45 and just before the rain came luckily. Lunch was at the Restoran East of the Highway and we made it there just before the kitchen closed. The food here was excellent other than the yam basket with rather smelly squid …. note that we should not order this again.

Results

Winner of the day with an excellent 40 points (gross of 86) was Tony Morris, with Geoff McLaws runner up some 7 points behind with 33 points and the best gross of the day at 83. As well as the RM50 pot Tony Morris won a free 4-flight voucher for Danau which had been kindly donated by the golf club manager who Ted and Geoff Parslow know well.

We had one non finisher, Andrew Chez, who had to leave 2 holes from the finish. We also had a couple of players who didn’t submit scores so it is important to make sure that every player records their score and submits it otherwise it will not be recorded. If you are not going to the post game lunch please make sure that you hand in the scores to someone from your flight who is.
