Results – Templer Park – 22 May 2018

Todays convenor with Martin, Bernard and Tony16 LCs teed off from Templer Park CC’s 1st and 10th tee at 8:30 under bright morning light.

The course was in its usual fine shape with rather fast green for front nine and bit slower green in the back nine.

We were not affected by rain the whole game but it was rather muggy with no wind which affected many players with their concentration (as they claim).  It might have been one of the factor for only 3 players scoring below 100 today.

Results

Winner was Geoff McLaws with 81 for 32 points. Runner up was a three-way tie between Bernard Romahn, Brian Stubbs and Kevin Wiggins all with 28 points. Best gross was Geoff with 81. Full results below:

Results – Seri Selangor Golf Club – 15th May 2018

IMG_9311

With many players away on the KLOGS tour to Vietnam there were only 11 players today for our game at Seri Selangor Golf Club with Kevin Wiggins acting as Convenor as Hans was on the KLOGS trip. We started early and were off before 7:30am. The course was in good condition and as tricky as it always is. Weather was overcast making it relatively cool all the way round.

We noticed some course improvements with a new deep pot bunker placed at the right side of the green on Hole No 11, which was duly checked out by Paul Collett!

We were finished just after 12 noon and 7 of us made lunch at Pantai Seafood for some great food and the most welcome cold beers. And just for Hans’ attention we had a lovely large plate of huge prawns ……..

Results

Only two players managed to play to handicap today and Stuart Taylor and Paul Geddes both shot 36 points requiring a count back on the last 6 holes which Paul won – so Paul Geddes was the winner this week with Stuart Taylor runner up. Paul’s round of 82 got the best gross award. Full scores below:

Results – Tasik Puteri – 8th May 2018

IMG_9182

We had 21 players today for our game at Tasik Puteri – a rather odd number so we ended up having 4 flights of 4 and a jumbo 5-ball flight at the rear. We all had to start on the Tasik course as there was a competition on the other two nines and then we crossed over to the Puteri course. The weather was perfect with blue skies and even a light cooling breeze making it a pleasant round. The course was in good condition but the greens on the Tasik nine were markedly faster than the greens on the Puteri course.

We finished by 12:30 and then departed for lunch at the Chin Heong Restaurant close to Rawang. Andrew Robinson and Siegmund Maierbrugger who were celebrating birthdays kindly added some cash to the coffers to help out for lunch. Happy Birthday boys!!

Results

With 2 players on a best score of 39 points we had to do a countback with Stuart Taylor and Siegmund Maierbrugger both on 39 points. They had identical back 9’s of 20 points so we had to look at the last 6 holes at which point Stuart was the winner this week. Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with a 79. Full scores tabulated below:

Results – KGSAAS – 2 May 2018

IMG_9027

Our first game of May was held at KGSAAS in Shah Alam with 6 full flights teeing off on the President and Sultan courses at 7:30am. It was a beautiful morning and the course was in fairly good condition. The greens on the Sultan 9 had been sanded but were still running very well.

After the game we had lunch on the terrace and with a kindly contribution from Joe Lacy (late Birthday celebration) the cost was very good.

Results

The winner this week was Ricardo Castro with an excellent score of 81 for 40 points. We had 3 joint runners up all on 37 points; Martin Walsh, Stan Constantinides and Geoff McLaws. Best gross today was Geoff McLaws with an excellent 76. Full results below:

Results – Palm Garden Golf Club – 24th April 2018

IMG_8883

We had a bumper turnout this week at Palm Garden Golf Club with 32 players attending. Whether it was the good course that attracted players or the free lunch and drinks courtesy of our Birthday Boys Ted Parslow & Hans Berger …. we are not sure.

Our 8 flights got off smoothly from two tee boxes at 7:30am and we were all back in the clubhouse before 12:30pm as a heavy rain storm hit – the last flight unfortunately had to abandon the last hole and only played 17 holes …. more of that later!

The course was in really nice condition and as always the greens were testing. Being able to drive the buggies on the fairways and having caddies certainly speeded play up.

We had lunch at the club after the game and the food and drinks were very kindly sponsored by Hans Berger and Ted Parslow who were celebrating a combined birthday of 150 years!! A big Thank You to both Hans and Ted for this kind gesture. The club also provided gifts for the Birthday Boys and some vouchers as lucky raffle prizes. Hans and Ted were presented with two birthday cakes adorned with their national flags (thanks to Ricardo for arranging this)

Results

The winner today was David Evans with 39 points – and this was his score after only completing 17 holes as he was in the last flight that did not play the last hole. Well done David. Runner up was Kaz Takita with 92 for 38 points. Best gross was Andrew Cseszko and Jason Winter both with 82. Full results below.

Note : For the 4 players in the last flight who missed the last hole their gross was calculated by using a gross score on the last hole that gave them zero Stableford points)

Results – Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort – 17th April 2018

IMG_8783

We had only 3 flights today at Amverton Cove with 12 players heading at from Hole No 1 at 8:00am. Weather conditions were good and the course was generally ok but the back 9 greens had large areas of sand around the aprons making it sometimes difficult for the approach shots. We were not held up around the course and everyone was back by 12:30 or so for lunch on the golfer’s deck. Lunch was pretty average in terms of food quality and rather expensive compared to othere restaurants outside – perhaps time to reconsider a change.

One other issue noticed on the course today was a group games activity being held between the 9th and the 18th greens directly in front of the clubhouse with a large crowd of noisy participants shouting and screaming – not exactly helping golfers on those greens trying to concentrate on their putts. I realise that Amverton Cove is now offering a multitude of activities from archery, ATV driving, power boat rides in the lake and other team games but they should remember their prime activity is golf and these other activities should not impinge on the golfers while they are playing. Perhaps they should relocated some of these team activities away from the areas near the course.

Results

The winner today with a very steady round was Andrew Robinson with a score of 99 for 37 points and he was the only player who managed to better their handicap today. Joint runners up were Bernard Romahn (86/34) and Iain Wise (98/34). Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an 84 and Brian Stubbs got the best strokes per $ out of the game. Full results below:

Results – Bukit Kemuning Golf & Country Resort – 10th April 2018

IMG_8679

We had 5 full flights today at Bukit kemuning and we got off on two 9’s at 8:00am. The course was not in the best of condition – many bare patches on the fairway and the greens were very sand and bumpy. Weather was good though and we all managed to finsh at a reasonable time (all except the last flight who took another 45 mins to reach the restaurant!). We had lunch at the New O&S Seafood Restaurant in Bukit Kemuning with most people attending – food was good and beer was plentiful. It was a little more expensive than normal (RM70/head) – maybe we were all just thirsty.

Results

The winner today with a magnificent performance was David Evans with a score of 95 for 45 points. Runner up was Bernard Romahn with the best grosss of the day (78) for 43 points. Full results below:
