Results – Bukit Jalil – 16th October 2018

img_6143
15 LC’stook on Bukit Jalil yesterday and it turned out to be a very pleasant day’s golf.General agreement was that the course was in good condition despite the recent heavy rains with the greens running much truer than Seri Selangor last week.
Our smooth operator Ricardo helped to get us away very quickly and efficiently for a 2 Tee Box Start and also used his legendary negotiating skills to reduce the starting prices for us all significantly,leaving a nice kitty for lunch.Great job Ricardo.
Winner on the day was Ricardo himself with 83/37 just edging out Iain on countback  with 96/37. Kevin and Martin closely followed with 90/36 and 86/36 respectively
Hans is still on the treatment table so if you guys want a game next week somebody is going to have to step up to the plate and organize

Results – Seri Selangor – 9th October 2018

18 LC’s got away in good time on a pleasant day for golf.Unfortunately Jan came down with flu late on Monday night.Get well soon Jan. Whilst Enzo unfortunately forgot to put his Alarm Clock on !!! and never made it
There seemed to be mixed thoughts about the condition of the course with Paul’s group in particular being very critical of the Greens.Personally I am always happy to play there (very convenient for most of us,and Registration reasonably easy etc) although we go there knowing in advance that for most of us it is going to be very tough course to play
Scores reflected that Seri Selangor was the winner on the day with nobody able to play to handicap. Kevin was the winner with 34 points,just nudging out a big chasing pack of Ray,Paul G,Iain,Dave E and Bernie all on 33
8 of us made it to Pantai Seafood where we enjoyed a good lunch ordered by Iain with lots beer to wash it down.
Next week all being well we will probably be at Bukit Jalil where I will be expecting everybody to be on their A Game and nothing less than 40 + points by the winner !!!

Results – Tasik Puteri – 2nd October 2018

11 of us played the Tasik and Puteri Nines today.The weather was perfect for golf and the course itself in very good condition,the only complaint being that the pace of the greens was very difficult to judge and resulted in numerous 3 puts. An early 7.30 start meant that we were all back in the Club House by 11.30 and ready for beer and makan at our usual Chinese Restaurant

Of course Murphy’s Law dictated that when we got to the Restaurant it was closed for the day so 7 of us trundled off to Pantai Seafood where under Tony ‘s expert guidance a fine lunch was had by all, made even better by Iain’s generous contribution of 200.00 to celebrate his 58th Birthday,CheersIain !!!

Winner on the day was Tony,with Dave, 2nd and Stan and Peter Joint 3rd

Tony 18 92/36

Results – Impian Golf & Country Club – 18th September 2018

IMG_2389

It was a wet and rainy start this morning at Impian Golf & Country Club delaying our tee off till around 8:30am. Even then the rain continued for a good 5 holes or so …. and then cleared … and then rained again on the 2nd nine for a few holes. On the positive side the course conditions were very good and the weather very cool with all the rain. We had 3 flights today and 2 of the flights finished by around 1:30pm and the other flight slightly later as they had been further delayed due to a rain stop. After the game 5 of us had a good lunch at the Crab House Restaurant in Taman Kasturi.

I have photographed some strange things on many golf courses but today there was something REALLY strange … a fish … a very large half-eaten fish in the rough at the side of the fairway on the par 5 17th hole. Can only think a large bird of prey such as a large eagle had dropped this.

Results – Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club – 12th September, 2018

IMG_2137

Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club is wonderfully located in the hills north east of KL offering scenic views and cool weather. It can be a real pleasure to play up here …. but not today. The course has been sadly neglected and with almost a total lack of maintenance the course is a total disgrace. Tees are shoddy, uneven and dug up in places, the fairways are untidy with many dug up areas due to wild boar activity, bunkers are very messy and in need of repair and re-sanding and the greens are potholed and patchy making putting a random lottery. The 17th green was totally sanded with large piles of sand at the edges of the green making it very difficult to make your approach and to putt.  The hole itself was totally misshapen and ragged as shown below:

IMG_2140

IMG_2139

All in all very shoddy so I do not think we will be returning to this course for a long time unless the management get their act together to fix all the problems.

We had 5 flights today and we managed to tee off on separate holes to try and speed up play. Most players got round in a reasonable time and after the game we drove back down the hill to Kampong Tinggi to our old favourite 126 Restaurant.

The winner was Tony Morris with a score of 94 for 34 points. There were 3 runners up all on 32 poiunts; Ricardo Castro, Stan Constantinides and Bernard Romahn. Best gross was Ricardo Castro and Paul Geddes with 87. Full scores below:

Results – KGSAAS – 28th August 2018

IMG_1764

The monthly trophy game this month was held at KGSAAS and although we were booked for an early tee off at 7:30am because of heavy rain we were delayed by about an hour. The first few holes were rainy (so at last I could try out my new rain jacket!) but otherwise the course was in good shape. Soon the sun was out and there were blue skies making for a pleasant morning’s golf and the rain making things a little cooler.

After the game we had lunch and the prize giving ceremony at the clubhouse terrace.

Results

The winner of the August Trophy was Geoff McLaws with a score of 76 (best gross) for 38 points.

Results – Staffield Country Resort – 21st August 2018

IMG_1677

We had 5 full flights today at Staffield Country Resort and started the day on the terrace with a presentation to Aftab Ahmad who is leaving shortly to return to California. He was presented with a pewter Royal Selangor plate which I am sure he will use to eat his breakfast from every day from now! Good luck in California Aftab and hope to see you back here for a visit soon. We also took the opportunity to take a group photograph.

IMG_1662

We played the Western and Southern nines today and the course was in good shape as usual, somewhat dry therefore resulting in players hitting longer drives than normal. The greens were good so no complaints on the course at all. Weather was very good and although the weather forecast predicted rain mid-morning we manage to miss this luckily.

After the game we had a good lunch and quite a few cold beers on the terrace.
