STAFFIELD REPORT-04-10-2022

Cannon’s,

The first game of October was held at Staffield and we play Western and Northern nines. Fairways were in good shape with fast greens and sloppy pins positions. We had 1 caddie per flight and they were very good. Our overseas guest Lukas played his 3rd game and he will be back in November to become a full member. We also had two birthdays to celebrate, Iain Wise and WL Chia who contributed 150.00Rm and 180.00Rm respectively for our lunch and drinks and we all wish them the best and many returns. Today the winner was Josef Winter with an excellent 86 for 40 points, followed in second by another German Roland Steiner with a nice 93 for 38 points and in third place two players, Ricardo Castro (Lowest gross) and Mike Williams with 82 and 85 for 34 points. We all agreed to play for our 3rd game the very very far Famosa course (a different galaxy from Staffield) :-))))).. as I heard the conditions now are very good and also we have good Chinese restaurants options near the club, so let us try a different course from our usual menu. Next week (11-10-22) we will be playing Seri Selangor at KL galaxy, so no excuses. Stay safe.

PS: Happy birthday also to Paul Geddes.

Cheers

Ricardo Castro

TEMPLER PARK REPORT-27-09-2022

Cannon’s,

Always a pleasure playing at Templer Park and getting involved with the majestic landscape around the 18th holes. The course is always in a good shape with changeling greens and difficult pin positions, making many of us increase our number of puts, but overall a great course to play many times. We welcomed a new guest, Diederik Brinkman, introduced by Roland Steiner, and he got an LC sleeve of balls as a gift for his first game with us and we are looking forward to seeing him again very soon. Oc Tan also played his 3rd game and just needs 2 more games to become a full member. The winner today was Ricardo Castro with an excellent 79 for 38 points, followed by Helmut Dicknoether with 93 for 36 points, and in 3rd place was David Cheung with 91 for 35 points. With this final monthly game results, Ricardo Castro and Bernhard Romahn finished in first place with 74 points, and Bernhard became the September winner because from the best 2 games between the 2 players, because he had the highest score on of the his best games of 42 points, so congratulations to Bernhard, and well done. For the LC player of the year competition, Ricardo Cemented, even more, his first position, now with 132 points, followed now by Helmut with 52 points who relegated Bipan and Iain to the third position booth with 48 points. Next week let’s welcome October games at Staffield and stay safe.

Cheers

Ricardo Castro

BUKIT UNGGUL REPORT-20-09-2022

Cannon’s

It was a pleasure to play again on this special course surrounded by jungle with overcast and humid weather all morning. First nine we played wet fairways with nice greens, the second nine was much dryer with a few sandy greens, but overall good conditions for a good game of golf reflected on the results with only one player scoring below thirty points. The winner today was Bernhard Romahn with an excellent 81 for 42 points, followed in second by the local member Mike Williams scoring the lowest gross 78 for 40 points, and in third place the return of the Jedi, Paul Geddes with 82 for 37 points. With these results, the monthly competition Bernhard is now leading the pack with 74 points, second W Chia with 73, and third David Cheung with 72, so all open for next week at Templer Park. We welcomed Michael Fenner-Smith for his first game with us, receiving a sleeve of LC balls, and hope we can see him more times playing with us and becoming a full member. David Cheung got his voucher to commemorate his August victory. Thanks to Mike Williams for helping me with the registration ladies, and helping to get good rates and caddies. See you all next week and remember stay safe.

Cheers

Ricardo Castro

OBITUARY HAKAN KULP-SEPTEMBER 2022

Cannon’s

Hakan Kulp sadly passed away last week after a long struggle battle with cancer and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

From the Loose Cannons records, Hakan joined our Society on January 14th, 2020, and played seven games with us, all at his favorite course Tasik Puteri winning one with a fantastic score of 43 points (above picture showing very proud his prize). He was due to play more games but it was difficult for him to play more times because of medical reasons.

He also played twice for Klog’s Society as a guest of Jimmy Leggatt, his close friend, and became a full member, but unfortunately for the same reasons, he was not able to play more times.

A very likable and true gentleman guy who will be sadly missed. Our deepest condolences to Hakan’s family.

Rest in Peace Hakan

TASIK PUTERI REPORT-13-09-2022

Cannon’s

It was nice playing again Tasik Puteri even in the last two years we have been seeing the course conditions getting worse due to the lack of maintenance and the increasing night activity with the wild boar. Today the course was ok kind of hard fairways with some of them almost no grass and easy to top the ball, with good greens, slow on the first nine, and a little faster on the back nine. The winner today was the club master member, I’m sure with some inside tips with an excellent 87 for 43 points, followed by Ricardo Castro (lowest gross of the day) with 81 for 36 and another club member (here it looks like the inside tips didn’t work well) :-)))) with 91 for 36 points. After the game nine of us, we had a good lunch at the club. Next week we will be playing the infamous Bkt Unggul.

Cheers

Ricardo

BKT BERUNTUNG REPORT-06-09-2022

Cannon’s

Because of two late cancellations, we teed off with two three balls at Bukit Beruntung. The course was in very good condition, in particular the greens. The weather was very nice to us with overcast skies during the first nine and more sunny weather during the last nine holes.
interesting that the two nines at Bukit Beruntung are so different in character. Both have their challenges, but the first nine always score better than the second nine.

The scores were very close with Andrew coming in last with 28 points and Jan and Dave first with 33 points. Dave won the voucher on count back (17 on the last nine against Jan 13.

We had a very good quality lunch at the Full Moon restaurant, with a number of good beers as well.

Next, we will be at Tasik Puteri

AMVERTON COVE REPORT-30-08-2022

Cannon’s

Today was a very fine day indeed to play Amverton Cove. The course was in very nice condition, in spite of all the rain we had over the last couple of days. Always a good and quiet course to play with the necessary challenges. The fairways were well maintained as were the greens. They became better as the day progressed because of drying up. 

The weather was very friendly with an overcast sky and not too much sun.

The scores also showed good play and that we enjoyed ourselves. Ricardo ended as third with 37 points. Jan tried hard but his 40 points were not good enough to beat David Cheung who was the winner with 41 (!!) points. With these results, David Cheung is the Monthly winner with an impressive best 2 games of 83 followed by Ricardo Castro with 74, and in third place Chia with 72 points. For the LCOTY annual competition, Ricardo cemented his first position with 118 points followed by Bipan Kapur, Iain Wise, and Helmut Dicknoether all with 48 points. Javed Malik played his third game so two more and he will be a full member.

After the game, we had a very good lunch, the dishes ordered by Andrew, at I Suka (which means I Love, I learned on the way), accompanied by some good beers.

Next week Bukit Beruntung, don’t forget to read our blog, book your 2023 LC shirt, and sign up for Ipoh away games.

NILAI SPRINGS REPORT-23-08-2022

Cannon’s

Back to the beautiful Nilai Springs with 9 of us, playing Mango and Pines nines. Some of the fairways were quite soggy but overall were playable with nice, tricky, and fast greens. The weather was quite overcast with some dark clouds but we only had rain for 20 min on holes 6 and 7 Pines nine. The winner today was Chia with an excellent 95 for 37 points, followed by our guest Uwe Lukas with 100 for 32 points and in third place was Helmut with 99 for 30 points. With these results August competition saw Chia jump straight to first place with 72 points followed closely by David Cheung with 71 and Ricardo and Helmut with 68 and 66 respectively, so quite interesting will be the Amverton battle next week to grab the monthly prize. Javed, Lukas, and OC Tan played their second game so 3 more to be full members.

Cheers

IMPIAN REPORT-16-08-2022

Cannon’s,

We had a great morning at Impian with a nice group including three new potential members for their first game with us, Uwe Lukas, Javed Malik, and OC Tan, and hope you guys can join us more times and become full Loose Cannons members. The course was in great condition, with nice fairways and well-maintained greens. The winner today was Ricardo Castro with a gross of 80 for 37 points followed by our guests Javed and Lukas with the same points, but the rule is guests can’t win until they complete 5 games and become full members. Overall great results for everyone and especially for Hans who managed to play his hdc…Well done Hans. The next game will be at Nilai Springs, so prepare yourself for the battle…

BUKIT KEMUNING REPORT-09-08-2022

Cannon’s

Finally, we had the opportunity to play again Kemuning after so many months of trying to contact the club and the excuse was they had a problem with the cable line. Anyways we had a good morning with 3 flights of 3 players and we tee off on time on hole 1. Conditions were ok, playable with some sandy greens and some of them difficult to read the speed. We welcomed a new guest from the UK visiting Malaysia, Steve Laking (Thanks to Dave Evans) and he got a sleeve of balls to remember this special and memorable moment in time. The winner today was David Cheung with 88 for an amazing 42 points followed by our guest with 100 for 38 points and in third place was the consistent Helmut Dicknoeter with 93 for 36 points. After the game, we rushed to the nearby restaurant Gather Gather Kitchen where we had some cool beers and nice food. The next game will be at Impian.

Cheers

Ricardo
