Results – The Mines Resort & Golf Club – 4th June 2019

We played The Mines Resort & Golf Club today using their special Ramadan rate. We had 4 flights with 15 players with one last minute drop out and teed’ off on two tee boxes at 7:30am. Weather was really pleasant and the course was in great shape making it a really wonderful experience. We were held up for a bit on cross over due to 2 flights being inserted between our flights – the starter and marshall should really be arranging this better at a club of this stature.

We all finished by around 12:30pm and then headed to the nearby East of Highway Restaurant for lunch and some cold beers. Many thanks to Stan Constantinides who conributed to the pot as it was his birthday today – Happy Birthday Stan and also a kind donation was made by Niall Murray who was celebrating being a father – congrats Niall!


The winner today was Andrew Cseszko with a score of 77 (best gross) for 37 points – he didn’t make lunch so his RM50 winnings went into the pot …. cheers Andrew! Runner up was Ted Parslow with 86 for 36. Full scores tabulated below:

Cannons all,
The Mines Resort & Golf Club is one of the top golf clubs in the region having hosted the World Cup of Golf, LPGA events and the USGA tour event, The CIMB Classic and so we were privileged to be able to play this superb facility thanks to the kind invitation of member Anthony Hastings and the co-operation of the GM Jean Daniels as Anthony (the member) was unable to join us.
15 of the 16 LC’s arrived in good time, mostly without a problem, although the sign posting to such a prestigious destination was rather poor and caused Glen some problems, but perhaps the members like it that way. Keeps the riffraff away. You know you are in a rich mans playground once you set foot in the place. The clubhouse oozes class. Registration took but a few minutes and I received one small chit for the 16 of us. In fact the lady at registration had told me that we could pay when we were finished, before leaving the club. You won’t find that anywhere else.
The course has matured and improved since I last played here in the mid 90’s; especially the back nine which was almost unrecognisable, and the whole 18 was in superb condition. The only minor exception being the scarifying of some of the fairways on the approach to the greens in preparation for the CIMB Classic in October. This is a USPGA tour event and Tiger Woods will be competing. I wonder how much that’s costing them?
The buggies were top class as too were the caddies several of whom were low handicap golfers and read the greens spot on. A pity then that their golfers couldn’t putt the ball where they were told to!
With hardly a cloud in the sky we teed off just after 8 and were the only players on the course. Mercifully a strong breeze developed by mid morning resulting in near perfect conditions. With buggies allowed on the fairways we should have been round in double quick time but alas the 2 flights who teed off on the back nine made rather heavy work of it and finished well after the first 2 flights. 
Hopefully we will play here again.

The winner, returning after 5 weeks in the frozen north, was Andrew Robinson with 44 points and the runner-up was Ray Funnell with 38 points.The lowest gross was a modest 83 by Geoff McLaws and the most golf was played by Alan Holgate with 117.
Andrew is cut 8 strokes and Ray 1 stroke.
Lunch was at taken at the club with all 16 attending and the food was excellent as you would expect. The beer flowed freely and we were later joined by Jean Daniels who updated us on the plans for Bukit Beruntung which is now owned by The Mines and is to be redeveloped into a 54 hole layout. When I left the hardcore were planning a continuation at another venue…… all sounded rather dangerous!!!!  I wonder what time it finished?

Next Game – The Mines Resort & Golf Club – 7th August 2012

We have been invited to play The Mines by Anthony Hastings. This is one of the most prestigious golf courses in the country, host of The World Cup of Golf and the USGA tournament the CIMB Asia Pacific Golf Classic and so this is an opportunity not to be missed. Unfortunately Anthony will not be able to join us. We are limited to 16 players at the members guest rate of RM680 nett per flight. I will take registration for the 16 slots available giving preference to regular players. And so:-
Golf next Tuesday, 7th August 2012 will be at 
The Mines Resort & Golf Club
Limited to 4 flights
Be there by 07:30 LATEST
Names to Mike Smith soonest
