Results – Tasik Puteri – 22nd August 2017

IMG_5130There were 5 flights today at Tasik Puteri and we all got off efficiently on the Putera and Puteri 9’s at 8:00am sharp. Weather was good, rather cool and overcast for the first hour or so making it a pleasant morning. The course was looking a little more scruffy than it usually does with overgrown tee boxes and various patches of long grass and GUR on the fairways. The greens were good though and provided some putting challenges on some of the holes.

We had lunch at the club after the game and as usual the food was rather ordinary and took a long time to come for many of us. I would recommend we return to the usual Chin Heong Restoran Chinese Restaurant at this venue the next time.

Results

Some good scores today at the top of the table with quite a few players bettering the ir handicap. The winner was Iain Wise with an excellent 86 for 44 points and continuing in hos post-holiday golf form. Runner up was Tony Morris with 86 for 43 points. best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with an 81 and most golf was shared between Allan Wright and Aftab Ahmad. Full results below:

Results – Impian Golf Club – 15th August 2017

A rainy day in paradise ! 
With Stuart Taylor having to drop out at the last minute due to illness, 19 LC’s (including the returning of our beloved resident convener, Hans Berger from the frozen North with a few more kilos and looking forward to be at the hot seat again) braved torrential rain & dark, treacherous roads to play at the Impian Golf & Country Club earlier today. The heavy rain continued unabated until ~ 7.45am resulting in some delay in teeing off, but eventually 4 flights teed-off on #1 with 1 flight joining a queue on #10.  Rain continued sporadically throughout the morning, with thunder audible and very dark skies overhead; however there was no further interruption due to rain so, despite these issues, play was generally reasonably quick with all players finishing by ~  1.45pm
The course was, as usual, in beautiful condition, if a bit soggy and challenging for some (including your stand-in temporary scribe).

 

Results

The winner was Stan (finally)  with 92 for 36 points. Runner-up was Iain Wise with 95 for 35 (even with 6 blobs ) ahead of Ricardo with 88 for 34. Lowest gross was Ricardo with 88 and the most gross was Ray Funnell with 114. Full results listed below:

Lunch should be at Fei Wai Seafood, but was closed with different name, so we switch to Ken Well seafood restaurant just opposite side attended by only 10 of us. Good food, good company, plenty of good humored banter and 10 nice cold Tiger to help it along. 200 Rm donated by Iain Wise to commemorate his first EAGLE ever, and 50.00 Rm from Roger as a fine to celebrate his fantastic tee shot who ended up before lady’s tee.
Thank you Tony Morris, Stan Constantinides, Hans Berger, Brian Buckley, Roger McGowan, Reinli Tan, Kevin Wiggins, Iain Wise and Martin Belderink to your kind donation to the SILOAM HOUSE.
Thank you all for your support and understanding during this 6 weeks hoping everyone enjoy the prizes, lucky draws and some adding competition bringing to Loose Cannons games more taste and join. Stuart, thank you so much for your support, time and consideration, really appreciate. 33 players were playing during this 6 weeks and hope more members can join us more often. My job is done and now is Mr. Berger’s time to show off.

Results – Bukit Jalil – 8th August 2017

It was cloudy and steamy day when 12 players teed’ off at Bukit Jalil today starting on the front 9 at 8:12 am. The course was as tricky as usual and the greens were running rather quickly generating quite a few multiple putts from all players. Flight one finished in 4 hours, but flight 2 and 3 they were quite slow causing some angry faces and some delay for lunch.
After the game we had lunch at the club with cool beers and quite a reasonable food for the club standard. Bernhard order seafood rice but the seafood was replaced with an succulent kampung chicken, and with a loud complaining from Bernhard they finally brought one more rice with 2 mussels on the top.

Results

The clear winner today was Kaz Takita with an excellent 94 for 39 points. Runner up was Iain Wise with 95 for 36 points (with sleeping puts), Martin Belderink coming 3rd with 96 for 35 points. Ricardo was best gross of the day with his “excellent” 91 and Roger McGowan had the most golf played with 106 so he got his honorable ball to open the battle next week . Full results below :

Results – Bukit Kemuning – 1st August 2017

IMG_4962

The first game of August was played at Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort with 19 players attending. We got off from two tee boxes at 8:00am sharp and most players were not held up during the round. The course is looking a little more unkempt than normal and the greens on the back 9 were very bad – sandy and uneven.

After the game we had lunch at a new venue, Ocean Point Restaurant in Bukit Kemuning, as suggested by Rein Li Tan (he did not show up for lunch with the rest of us so we were left scrabbling to order as the restaurant had no menu). Beer was reasonable (RM17 a bottle) but the meal turned out to be expensive at RM70 a head without ordering any fancy stuff.

Results

The winner today was Brian Stubbs with a fine score of 94 for 43 points – well done Brian. Runner up was Martin Belderink with 91 for 41 points. Best gross was Paul Geddes with an 83 and most golf was David Evans with 105. Full results below :

IMG_4675

The Monthly Trophy game for July was held at Staffield Country Resort with 5 full flights of 20 players. We all started on the Southern 9 at 8:00am sharp and followed this by playing the Western 9.

The course was in good shape overall and the weather cool and overcast for most of the round. We had a short 20 minute stoppage due to thunder and lightning after about 7 holes. After the game we had lunch at the clubhouse and the prize ceremony.

Paul’s New Swing

 

Results – Bukit Unggul – 18th July 2017

We had 5 full flights at Bukit Unggul today and welcomed our new member Brian Buckley on his first official game (he did play at the Golf Charity Match but this was not scored).

2 notable senior moments this morning …….

  1. Paul Geddes made a detour in the morning on the way to golf (as he had “plenty of time”) to go to an ATM machine only to get stuck in bad traffic on his return trip to the club ending up being late and having to pay the RM20 fine …. just as well he went to the ATM!
  2. Stan Constantinides arriving early at the club in the dark made a wrong turn and drove down the buggy track to the golfer’s terrace area …. just as well he has a small car!

We started on split tees on time at just before 8:00am and it was our Highest Gross Winner from last week, Martin Belderink, who kicked off the game with an honoroury exploding ball shot on the 10th tee!

The course was in better shape than I have seen for a while and the greens were very good although some still had a lot of sand on them. Some tee boxes need to be attended to however ….. and of course as usual the showers after the game were stone cold.

We had lunch at the club after the game with 18 people attending.

Results

The winner today was Bernard Romahn with 82 for 42 points and runner up was Kevin Wiggins with 88 for 38. Best gross today was shared by Bernard Romahn and Mike Williams, both with 82. Full results below:

Results – Nilai Springs – 11th July 2017

After the heavy thunder and rainstorm overnight it was a welcome relief to find good conditions at Nilai Springs today, with only a few soggy patches on the course. The rest of the course was in good shape but I have to say that the revised convex shaped greens on the Island Nine are terrible posing a few problems to the players to keep the ball on the green.

We had 12 players today making 3 full flights. We welcomed guest Paul Collett having his first game at Loose Cannons since his recent arrival back to Malaysia.

The course was very quiet so we all got off on time at just before 8:30 and had a pleasant lunch at the club post game. Many thanks to Brian Stubbs who was celebrating another large birthday and kindly donated to the pot …. Happy Birthday Brian.

Results

Close scores at the top of the board this week but our winner was Bernard Romahn with a 90 for 35 points. 3 players were all on 34 points but 2nd on count back was Reinli Tan with 97 for 34 followed by Ricardo Castro with 87 for 34 in 3rd place.

Best gross of the day was Ricardo Castro with an 87 and most golf of the day went to Martin Belderink with 111.

Results – Tasik Puteri- 4th July 2017

There were 5 full flights today for our first game of July at Tasik Puteri. We played the Tasik and Puteri 9’s and got off almost without a delay …… only small hiccup was on saddling up in the buggies Kevin Wiggins could not find his clubs … he eventually checked his car and there they were …. as on his arrival at the club they had taken out his daughter’s small set of clubs instead of his ones. We should have insisted he played with those!

The course was in good condition and quite dry making it conjusive for some good scores. Greens were on the slow side.

We had planned after the game to have lunch at Restoran Chin Heong Rawang in Rawang but as the chef was sick we stayed on at the club and took lunch there …. apart from the very late arrival of my kung po chicken dish all went well.

Results

It was a close call at the top of the table today with Roger McGowan winning) on count back) with 95 for 41 points from Kevin Wiggins with 86 for 41 points. Erol Akinci put in a good round with a 95 for 40. Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an 82 and worst gross of the day was Graham Cadman with a 116. Full results below:

Results – Kota Seriemas – 28th June 2017

We all arrived in good time for the June monthly medal as there were not many cars on the roads being the first working day after the Hari Raya Puasa holidays.

The lower handicappers teed off from hole 10, ordinary mortals from hole 1 and into the sun, but not to be worried we found our balls.

Our putting suffered a bit from the not fully recovered greens after the Ramadan course maintenance, the other part of the course were in very good conditions.

The winner of the June monthly medal were David Evans with 98/38, runner up me with 95/36, second runner up Ray Funnel 105/33.

Lowest gross, yes it should be one of the single handicapper shouldn’t and it was “long time no seen” Jason Winter with 83, Erol Akinci had the most gross with 107

All except two could make it to Restoran Loon Sing for the lunch and prize giving ceremony, personally I think the food were better last time.

Results – Sungai Long – 20th June 2017

It was not too many golfers in the morning and lucky us for that, as we were busy trying to get hold of our, yes exactly Reinli Tan, who was fully a sleep despite two alarms he said. He eventually showed up some time later.

Unfortunately we had to tee-off from hole one as second nine was not open yet.

Despite the morning rain the course was in excellent conditions and especially the greens, which were fast and had some holes with pin-placement on the borderline of put-able.

Lowest gross, even we had another 7-handicapper on the field, Geoff McLaws shoot a good 80 and the most golf ….yes Allan again.

Second runner up myself with 98/33, runner up Geoff McLaws 80/35 and the winner was Ricardo Castro with an excellent 82/40.

Unfortunately I hit a bird on hole five, the air and fairway was like full of feathers, eventually it took off over the pond and landed dead on the fairway as it looked from distance. If that was not enough Kewin Wiggins killed one bird on the road leaving the course. Not a good day for birds.

We welcome Enzo Filoni to Loose Cannons, a good golfer who I’m sure will be up there competing for the 50Rm and the monthly medal.
