It always seems to take a long time to register and get started at Nilai Springs and today was no exception …. our 8:00am tee-time turned into a 8:20am start with our 4 flights all off of the Pines nine followed by the Mango nine. Weather was hot …. really hot by the time we finished. The course was dry and the greens running quite fast and tricky.

Highlight of my game was getting on to 10-12ft from the pin in two on the Par 5 second hole on Pines ……. putting for an eagle then managed to 3 putt for a par (WTF!)

We all finished by 1:30 pm or so  (apart from Geoff McLawws who left after 9 holes to sort out some dog issues!) and took lunch on the terrace.

Results

The winner this week under these difficult conditions was Aftab Ahmad with a score of 94 for 37 points, 2nd place to Ricardo Castro with 87 (best gross) for 33 points. Full results below:

We only had 4 flights and 15 players this week at Nilai Springs with an earlier tee time of 7:30am to get off before a large competition. Two of our players arrived late having been lost on the way!! …. but we got off at around 7:40 on the Pines and Mango nines. Course conditions were very good and the greens rather fast – no doubt setup for the competition. Weather was very good so it was a very pleasant morning’s golf. We had lunch at the clubhouse following our game, which was as usual on the expensive side compared to an outside venue.

Results

The winner today was Siegmund Maierbrugger with a score of 86 for 41 points. Runner up was Bernard Romahn with 83 for 38 points. best gross of the day Was Niall Murray with 80. Full results as below:

There were 12 players confirmed for today’s game at Nilai Springs but due to a last minute pull out we only had 11.

We played the Mango and Island 9’s and made good time with no holdups all the way round. On the first 9 holes (Mango) the greens had not been cut and were very slow …. but the back 9 (Island) the greens were much much faster causing a big change in putting tactics for everyone.

Weather was good and we were all finished by just after 12 noon. Lunch was at the clubhouse verandah. We had to send back the initial two jugs of beer which were mildly cold … and exchanged these for some nice cold Carlsberg bottles on ice. Luckily these were taken off the bill.

Results – Nilai Springs – 11th July 2017

After the heavy thunder and rainstorm overnight it was a welcome relief to find good conditions at Nilai Springs today, with only a few soggy patches on the course. The rest of the course was in good shape but I have to say that the revised convex shaped greens on the Island Nine are terrible posing a few problems to the players to keep the ball on the green.

We had 12 players today making 3 full flights. We welcomed guest Paul Collett having his first game at Loose Cannons since his recent arrival back to Malaysia.

The course was very quiet so we all got off on time at just before 8:30 and had a pleasant lunch at the club post game. Many thanks to Brian Stubbs who was celebrating another large birthday and kindly donated to the pot …. Happy Birthday Brian.

Results

Close scores at the top of the board this week but our winner was Bernard Romahn with a 90 for 35 points. 3 players were all on 34 points but 2nd on count back was Reinli Tan with 97 for 34 followed by Ricardo Castro with 87 for 34 in 3rd place.

Best gross of the day was Ricardo Castro with an 87 and most golf of the day went to Martin Belderink with 111.

19 Loose Cannons tee’d off on the Island & Pines nines at Nilai Springs …. should have been 20 of us but ReinLi Tan was declared MIA. The Island nine we all started on was interesting to say the least. They have done some work on the greens with added undulations, some of which were severe and with the vindictive pin positions of the day there was many a ball running past the hole and back off the green. Most players found these greens very difficult indeed. Some of the pin positions and green setups were ridiculous.

The Pines nine was in better shape, particularly the greens, bringing some normality back to the game and some better scores.

The weather was relatively cool making it a pleasant morning and we all got round without any major delays and before the rain started.

Lunch after the game was at Restoran East of Highway which was enjoyed by the 11 of us that made the lunch ….. something no doubt to do with the two crates of beers we went through.

Results

Our winner today, and the only one to match his handicap, was Sigi Maierbrugger with a score of 92 for 36 points (Many thanks for your winnings which went into the pot!). Runner up was Aftab Ahmad with 101 for 33 on countback from Ricardo Castro and Ray Funnell. Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with a gross of 80. Full results below:

Results – Nilai Springs – 4th October 2016

 

It was a beautiful clear morning with 26 Loose Cannons players teeing off on the Mango & Pines 9’s of Nilai Springs Golf & Country Club. It is usually a challenge getting started at this club but luckily there were very few other players so we all got off on two boxes relatively efficiently.

Weather was wonderful and the course was in very good shape although some greens were a little on the bumpy side.

We finished by around 12:30pm and although we had planned to stay at the club for lunch and drinks they informed us they were “out of beer” so we quickly changed plans and headed to our reliable Restoran East of Highway for lunch and some much needed cold beers. Paul Geddes and Iain Wise were celebrating very recent birthdays so they kindly handles the refreshment bill making it an even more enjoyable lunch. Thank You to Paul and Iain.

Results

Some good scores today at Nilai Springs as is usually expected at this course. The winner was Stuart Taylor with 83 for 42 points on count back from Paul Geddes with 81 for 42 points (24 points on back 9 vs 20 points). 3rd place was shared between Glen Wombwell (96 for 41) and Allan Wright (91 for 41). Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with 78.

Results – Nilai Sparings Golf & Country Club – 20th October 2015

Fourteen players teed off at 8-00am at Nilai Springs, Bernhard being a late drop out because of the haze, the Germanic contingent was however reinforced by the presence of a Huns Berger (that was what the registration recorded him as).
We played the Island and Pines nines both being in very good condition, the scoring however did not reflect this. 
Twelve people attended a very enjoyable lunch at Restoran East of Highway, where good F & B was troughed by all.
Results
The winner was Ted Parslow with  a score of 82 for 38 points beating the runner up Allan Wright on count back. The lowest gross was Geoff McLaws with a round of 80.

Results – Nilai Springs – 9th June 2015

Four flights finally made it onto the fairways at Nilai Springs GCR today, after a fairly seamless registration but that was where it stopped. There were literally 19 flights which were booked at the same 8.37am tee time. Our late start was further hampered by the late arrival of some of the 8am slots that the Starter allowed to retain their position in the order.
At 9.13am, our first flight got to the 1st tee. Once we were all away off two tee boxes, all four flights managed to finish around the same time albeit late. Lunch was taken at the club due to the late finish. Added to this, Barry Sage was unable to finish his round due to work commitments this afternoon.
Bernard Romahn is on a hot streak with his third win in three weeks, much to the chagrin of a previous convener. Congratulations Bernard on your 81 gross for 42 points and winner on the day. Second was Roger Surieux with 41 points and third was shared betwen Tony Morris and Mike Williams with 37 points apiece.
Lowest gross was Geoff Parslow with 80. Full results attached below.

Results – Nilai Springs – 13th January 2015

16 players gathered at Nilai Springs under a cloudless sky and played a course in remarkably dry and good condition in perfect weather with a fresh breeze blowing throughout the round. It’s not often that you come off a Malaysian golf course with a dry shirt! We were a little late teeing off and consequently a little late arriving at East (west) of the Highway for a splendid lunch washed down with plenty of the golden nectar. Thanks Iain for ordering and thanks Geoff for contributing your winnings to the pot.
The winner with a superb gross 74 & 42 points was Geoff McLaws who’s round included 4 bogies!!! Well played Geoff.
