We had some excellent scores today, with half the players playing to or under their handicap. The highest Stableford was an excellent 43 from our new member Glen Sargeant …. but unfortunately as this is only his second game with Loose Cannons he has as yet an unconfirmed handicap in our handicap system so he cannot take the first prize. Well done though Glen … you can be rest assured that this great score will be input into your handicap calculation and after 5 games you will have an official playing handicap.
So the winner of the day was Stuart Taylor with a gross of 82 and 42 points, also the best gross of the day., Second place was shared by Erol Akinci and Barry Cousins, both on 40 points.

|The course also had many abandoned properties on the grounds|
17 LC’s teed it up at a very soggy Lembah Beringin Tuesday. We had been 20 but with Mike Han pitching up Monday!!!! and late withdrawals because of a bleeding nose and work interruptions from Tony Russell and Bruce Davidson we were reduced to 17.
The weather was fine and although the course was rather busy with some visiting Koreans, a pleasant round was anticipated. What we didn’t know was that the course had been inundated overnight restricting buggies to the track for the most part and with very soft fairways (akin to a quagmire in places) and water filled bunkers (they have a serious drainage problem here) LB was a sterner and longer test than we had expected.
The winner was Ray Funnell with 39 points and the runner-up Hans Berger with 38 points. The lowest gross was 89 by Siegmund (actually Kevin Wiggins recorded 88 but his flight had unilaterally invoked Winter Rules and so their scores were not considered in the official results) and the most golf was played by Alan Holgate with 113.
Full results and handicap adjustments can be found in the attachment.
13 of us drove down to the EQUATORIAL for lunch and excellent it was too. The Scandinavian contingent missed the exit and arrived later after a detour to the Sungai Buloh exit. You will get this with great navigators.
|DOESN’T LOOK GREAT, BUT THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT!|
The winner; Ray, chose to eat at the club and in his absence it only seemed right that he should “generously donate” his winnings to the pot. Thank you Ray.
This was Mike Hughes & Lars Barkhed’s last game on their annual pilgrimage from the frozen north. Bon voyage guys. We hope to see you both next year.

Luncheon was taken at the Equatorial on the way home and very good it was too. And the more astute of the group retired to the RSC Kiara Annex for further rehydration – which is a on-going challenge in the tropics for caucasians and needs to be addressed with the utmost vigour!
11 players turned up on time to a largely deserted course. Prior to play a violent tempest swept in to the club, high winds and driving rain – and it was quite chilly. And none of us had thought to bring cardigans! The storm abated somewhat and we progressed to the tee box. And then the storm was upon us again and we retired to the clubhouse for a further 45 minutes. Eventually the storm waned adn we were able to get play underway about an hour later than planned. And the first 9 holes were playing in dreary drizzle, but the weather perked up for the back 9. Thats my Michael Fish bit…
The course was in pretty good nick and the greens although slow were in excellent shape – but they badly needed a visit from Winnie Loo of Cut Above. Winner on the day was Tony Morris with 94 off the stick for 37 points, adn cut 4. Runner-up was Andrew Robinson with 90 for 36 points, adn cut 1. Andrew’s 90 was the days lowest gross and Alan Holgate played the most golf with 114. Full details:

Andrew Robinson – 90/36
Tom Holmes – 102/34
Kevin Wiggins – 92/33
