Results – Templer Park Country Club – 13th March 2018


With the main Loose Cannons group away to Malacca for 3 days tour there were 8 of us wanting to play here in KL so we played at the beautiful Templer Park Country Club. It was a stunning morning with bright blue skies but of course it was hot and humid. Even after the heavy rain of yesterday the course was in great condition and with few people playing it was to be a fairly quick round, at least for the first flight!

We had lunch after the game at the club which is a little expensive but very good.

As well as being the winner today, Geoff McLaws was also the loser ….. his mobile phone taken from the open buggy on the 18th hole by a monkey!! be careful guys and lock your valuables away.



The winner was Geoff McLaws with a round of 76 for 38 points with Stuart Taylor runner up with a 92 for 32 points. Full results below:

Results – Impian Golf & Country Club – 6th Mar 2018

We had 5 full flights at Impian this week starting a little later at 8:30am (once the Convenor eventually arrived) and got off from two tee boxes. The weather was very hot and extremely humid and along with the very slow play we encountered made for a very exhausting 5 hour round of golf.

The course was in very good condition as it usually is although the greens were maybe on the slow side. We finished after 1:30pm so by the time we got to the restaurant and ordered lunch it was almost 3pm when we ate.

Lunch and drinks were very kindly sponsored by Kaz Takita who was celebrating his big 70th birthday – a very Happy Birthday Kaz! Thank you very much.


The winner was Kaz Takita with an excellent round of 89 for 42 points. Runner up was Niall Murray with an 80 (best gross of the day) for 33 points. Full results below:

Results – Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club – 27th February 2018


The Monthly Trophy Game was held at Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club with 5 flights, 20 players and one guest. The course was relatively quiet so we got way sharp at 8:00am under wonderful conditions. The course was in good condition generally but we did notice that the tees were very dry and bare and the greens were not as good as before.

After the game we retired to the Loon Sing Restaurant close to the highway for lunch and the prize ceremony.



The winner of the February Monthly Trophy was Stan Constantinides with a score of 92 for 38 points just beating the runner up, Stuart Taylor, on countback who shot a 85 for 38 points. Well done Stan!!


Best gross of the day was Niall Murray with 80 and most golf was David Evans with 120 strokes. Full results below:

Results – Amverton Cove – 20th February 2018


IMG_7773There were 16 players this morning for our game at Amverton Cove and we started from 2 tee boxes ta 8:00am. The weather was good although it got very hot and humid by the back 9. The course was fairly quiet (other than the noisy caddies!) and we made good time around the 18 holes. The course was in better condition and the fairways seemed to have more grass on them now.

After the game we had lunch at the club which was surprisingly good – beer in cans only – but no one seemed to go thirsty!



The winner today was Bernie Schobert with 84 for 39 points on count back to Stan Constantinides who came 2nd with 90 for 39 points. Best gross of the day was Jason Winter with 78. Full results below:

Results – Bangi Golf Resort – 13th February 2018


Last time we played Bangi they had been doing a lot of maintenance work on the areas around the golf course so it was somewhat disappointing today to see the state of the course. The greens were bad, uncut and slow with numeorus patches and almost all of the bunkers have been left in a bad state and all with GUR signs. Looks like the maintennace budget has finished.

However the weather was great as our 5 flights headed out on the Putrajaya and Bangi nines. This course is generally rather short even from the blues so some good scores were expected.

We had lunch after the game at the regular and excellent Restoran East of Highway where 11 of us enjoyed a good lunch and plenty of amber ale to counteract the dehydration of the game.



There were some very good results today with 8 players shooting on the 40’s (Stableford Points). Our winner was Ricardo Castro with a 79 for 42 points. We had 3 runners up on 41 points; Bernard Romahn, Roger Surieux and Enzo Filoni. best gross was Niall Murray with a 78 which could have been 2 or 3 shots better had he not driven his ball OB on the very last hole.

Results – Tasik Puteri – 6th February 2018


With many of our regular players away on the WIGS tour we had only 15 players today at Tasik Puteri. Arriving at the club we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful new men’s changing room which had been renovated – a huge improvemnt on the old one.

We played the Puteri and Tasik 9’s and immediately noticed at the start that the newly printed scorecards were wrong in that the Puteri and Tasik 9’s both had the same odd indexes so we had to change the Tasik 9 indexes up by 1 to make them even.

The course was in good condition although the greens were slow. The weather was pleasant with some cloud cover giving us some respite from the heat.

After the game we had lunch at Restoran Chin Heong which was attended by 11 players.



The winner today was Ricardo Castro with a great round of 81 for 41 points. Runner up was Kaz Takita with 91 for 38. Best gross was Niall Murray with a 77. Full results below:

Results – Staffield – 30th January 2018

When we played this course in November last year I was told when registering next time we need to bring proof of age to get the benefits of seniors green fee. I called them Monday but no change of process. Oh boy, what a registration process one had to go through as they checked our proof of age for validity, three Malaysian driving licenses were not valid as it had no birthday date…no birthday date…. and a number of others needed clarification of which of the numbers is the birthday of the holder. Then they were all copied and after that the actual registration commenced.

By the time it was finished, a line of six-seven others were waiting behind me for the same process. And in the meantime two minibuses of Koreans had arrived and occupied the first tee-box of the Western nine which was allotted to our last three flights. One don’t take a fight with a stern looking Korean so eventually the club opened the Northern nine for us, but in hindsight it should have remained closed.

So much for booking well in advance, I need to find a better way of fixing this, group booking is perhaps the answer.

I have never experienced the course as wet and soggy before with lack of maintenance in certain areas which I think explain the high gross scores in many cases. But the weather was very nice, a bit hot though.

As many times before we had the lunch at the club with 19 of the 24 players attending. Yeah the food could be a bit better but with so many eating on the way home it’s not really working well as it will drag out forever until one can order the food.

So did we have any really good scores, yes three of twenty-four beat the course and they were:

Winner on count back Paul Collett with 91/39 who is the first winner of this month’s trophy from Royal Selangor

Runner up, Ricardo Castro with 83/39

Third and lowest gross Andrew Cseszko with 78/37

Paul Collet, January 2018 Champion
When I left the course, a flock of cows were grazing just outside going right. Being an old farmer boy I had to make a u-turn to take a few pictures and having a chat, I like cows.

An eventful and memorable day – Hans


The results have been corrected as 6 of the final scores did not have matching gross and Stableford points – these have been corrected as per the gross score submitted.
