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 ……..
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:
We returned to Seri Selangor after a long period where they were renovating the course. There have been some improvements but it is really far from ready with scruffy fairways, dug up areas and some extensive GUR area around some greens. The greens were very good however apart from hole no 18 which is now a temporary green as they work on the proper green. So we may have to leave it a while till we return here.
We had 4 full flights and got off from 2 tee boxes sharply at 8:00am. After the game we had lunch at our regular Pantai Seafood Restaurant which was very good.
The winner this week was Kevin Wiggins with a great round of 84 for 42 points which is a really good score at this course. Runner up was Allan Wright with 37 points on count back from Tony Morris also with 37 points. Best gross was Geoff McLaws with an 80 and most golf was Dave Evans with 113. Full scores below:
The winner with a gross 92 for 38 points was Greg Mackley. Well played Greg. You are cut 4 strokes. Runner-up o.c.b. was Mahmud Mohamed with 88 for 37 points which included an eagle at the last and the lowest gross was 84 by Andrew Chez. Full results are attached.
Scores were definitely on the low side which is the norm for this tough and tight little course. Runner up was Roger Surieux with 35 points (gross of 100) and the clear winner with 40 points (gross of 84) was Bernard Romahn. Full results as below:
Bernard was presented with the RM50 winnings and also received a special gift of a poster as a memory of the Batam Away Trip and to complement his other two posters. A copy of the poster is shown below for all to enjoy ….

11 players made it to Seri Selangor for a 7.00am muster. The course was in good order with excellent greens. However the rough was very rough and made for much ball searching. The second flight spent at least 60% of the time looking for Ian’s ball…..he managed to loose 6! The group welcomed Mohamed for his first Cannons game and Richard Moss who is now back in town after 2 years in Dubai.
Erol took the initiative to book us in to Betty’s Kitchen for lunch, which turned out to be closed for the day for stocktaking! So it was off to the RSC Kiara Sports Annex, where Mike Smith joined us. It turned out to be a good thrash with lashings of beer and wine to the fore. Unfortunatel Raymond who was not playing made his way to Betty’s for lunch……..!
Next week’s game will be at Seri Selangor. Please be there by 7:00am to start.Please let Andrew Robinson know of your intention to play.
After the game we will follow Erol to ‘Betty’s’ Midwestern Kitchen for a slap-up lunch washed down with fine wines (Please BYO for all wine drinkers as Betty’s has no wine) to celebrate the RETURN OF MOSS!!!! Oh dear………! ALAN HOLGATE’S Birthday will be celebrated at the following week’s game.
