SERI SELANGOR REPORT-26-07-2022

Cannon’s

We teed off early at 7.30, at a well-kept course with very fast greens. On some of the greens, the pin position was very difficult to read. One of the greens was recently sanded and so fast that many of us found the ball after the put further away from the hole than it was before. Anyway, it was an enjoyable morning, finished off with good food and a couple of cold beers at the Beer Factory across the road.

The winner this time was Siggy with 35 points, and the voucher was for him. He was followed by David Cheung with 31 and Jan with 29 points. In the July monthly competition, Ricardo Castro is the champion with 77, followed in second by Chia with 69, and Jan ends up in third with 61. With these results, the standings for the year competition Ricardo Castro cemented his first position now with 104 points followed by the due Bipan Kapur and Iain Wise with 48 points respectively and in fourth place Helmut Dicknoether not too far with 40 points.

A special announcement was made for Ricardo, who played his game as a single handicapper, he received a special (soccer)ball for this fact.

Next week, a bit further away, in Amverton Cove.

KGSAAS REPORT-19-07-2022

Cannon’s

Today we played KGSAAS in a combination we haven’t done in a long time. We played the Presidents nine and the Alam Shah nine. Two different nines. Both the fairways were in very good condition. The greens of the President’s nine were very slow, very difficult to read, therefore. The second nine greens were much better and faster.

We were held up by rain for maybe 10 minutes or so, but because we could tee off much earlier than booked we finished before 12 and enjoyed lunch with some beers at the club.

Ricardo played an excellent game with 79 for 39 points, with the result that he will be a single handicapper next week! Well done.

Bent was second and Jan and David closed the ranks with 3rd and 4th place.

Next week we will play Seri Selangor

Cheers

RAHMAN PUTRA REPORT-12-07-2022

Cannon’s

Today we had a great day at Rahman Putra. We played The Lakes course, where we could tee off a bit earlier than planned. The course may be challenging, but it is an excellent course to play. The maintenance of the course was perfect, the greens were a bit slow, because of the hollow tining last week. As everyone knows, there is enough water on the course, so plenty of opportunities to lose your golf balls and start with new ones.

At the end of the 18 holes, it appeared that only Ricardo holed out with the ball he started with. So he ended up in a first place with 35 points and won the voucher. Chia was second with 34 points, Jan third and Bent fourth.

We also celebrated Bent’s winner of the March competition, and we handed over the proof of being an official LC member, the bag tag, LC cap, and the sleeve of balls.

Next week we’ll play KGSAAS.

TASIK PUTERI REPORT-05-07-2022

Cannon’s

We teed off with two flights at Tasik Puteri. The course was in a reasonable condition with variable greens, which made it quite difficult to read. Anyway, the weather was very favorable to us, a bit of a breeze and the sun came only out at holes 10 – 11.

We played Puteri and Putera and celebrated the two “winners”, Bernhard and Ricardo. On count back, Bernhard was the lucky guy to get the voucher this week.

During lunch at the club, we celebrated three events: first of all, we welcomed Ted Parslow back, after more than two years of staying abroad, and avoided all the difficulties in Malaysia during the Covid time. Because he didn’t forget the LC’s, he received a sleeve of LC balls.
Then we welcomed W. L. Chia as a new Loose Cannons member. He played his fifth game today and received the bag tag, LC cap, and the sleeve of balls.

Lastly a milestone for Bernhard!! His 400th game today and he walked away with MST vouchers as an appreciation of this.

Thanks to his generous contribution we had a free lunch today!

Next week we’ll see each other at the challenging course of Rahman Putra.

Cheers

STAFFIELD REPORT-28-06-2022

Cannon’s

This week we teed off with three flights, although the last flight was not complete!! Staffield was a very wet course. No roll on the fairways and close to the greens a lot of areas were very soggy. You have to play really on the green because rolling up was not possible today. Also, a number of fairways were damaged by wild boars (I think). Yes, we have seen Staffield in a much better shape.

Anyway, the weather was favorable to us, not too much sun, which made the slow play because of the flight in front of us a bit bearable.

The lunch was enjoyed in the club and there we celebrated Josef Winter who won this week with 89 for 36 points followed by Ricardo Castro (lowest gross) and Hans Benn with 34 points, who shared second place.

With the last June’s game results, Mike Williams and Ricardo Castro finished on the top with the same points (74), but Mike got the silver with the highest score (42) at Bkt Unggul, so well deserved and well done Mike. With these results, the LCOTY standings saw Ricardo Castro increase his first position now with 84 points leaving Bipan Kapur and Iain Wise with a gap of 42 points, and Helmut Dicknoether kept his third place with 40 points. We reached now our half-year competition and still have a lot to fight for the last 6 months.

Next week we will play Tasik Puteri.

Cheers

Jan and Ricardo

BUKIT BERUNTUNG REPORT-21-06-2022

Cannon’s

Today we teed off with only one flight. The LC members who decided not to come have missed something. The course was in a good condition and the weather was not too warm. Every now and then some wet patches on the fairways but that was not too bad, and the greens were very good and most of the time difficult to read. So an extra challenge. The winner today was Ricardo Castro with an excellent score of 81 gross with 37 points. The second was Josef Winter with a respectable 90 for 35 points followed by Hans and Jan. With these results the LCOTY standings Ricardo still leading with a comfortable 74 points followed now by Josef Winter with 63 points. Today we skipped our normal lunch due to some last-minute duties in KL. Next week we plan to play Staffield and we hope more Cannon’s can join and make better numbers for our last game of June. Stay safe and see you guys next week.

Cheers

Jan/Ricardo

DANAU REPORT-14-06-2022

Cannon’s

A small group of 6 gathered in Danau to try to conquer this course. It was not an easy morning!! The course is as always very up and down, with hardly any horizontal fairway, including the greens. Some of the pin positions were so difficult that the ball came to rest even further than you were putting it from.

Halfway we were (un)pleasantly surprised by severe rain. The siren went so we had to wait. This took about 45 minutes after we finished the last nine. Of course, the fairways were a bit soggy in some places, but not too bad. At least we didn’t lose any balls because of water on the fairways.

Because it was quite late we decided to have a bite at the club (no beers of course…..) and we had that with the “respectable” number of three players. First time I think we had such a small group at lunch. I do want to remind everyone that lunch after the game is seen as part of the game, so please try to attend!

The winner was Ricardo with 84 strokes and 33 points. Chia, who played his third game finished second and Josef as third.

Next week Bkt Beruntung

Cheers

BUKIT UNGGUL REPORT-07-06-2022

Cannon’s

Bukit Unggul is a great course to play. The surroundings are stunning and the course itself is well playable for middle to high handicappers and the low handicappers have to use their heads a bit more. In some places, the course was a bit soggy, but that was not too bad. With good weather, not too hot, we had a very nice morning. We had lunch at the club, good food, and was reasonably priced.

That the course was in a good condition was shown by the scores. The two “home players” Mike and Tony ended up 1st and second. Mike with a very good 42 points (score: 77) and Tony with 41 points.

We welcomed David Cheung on his 5th game and is from now on officially a Loose Cannons member! Chia played his second game, so has another three to go.

We also had a new guest amongst us. Siggy took his colleague Frigg with him.

Jan played his 100th game with a donation of 100 RM for the lunch. He received a sleeve of balls for the occasion.

NILAI SPRINGS REPORT-31-05-2022

Cannon’s

It was a lovely morning at Nilai Springs with 2 flights teeing off at Island and 1 at Mango nine and we had quite a good pace finishing almost at the same time for a good lunch at the club. The booth courses were in great condition with tricky greens. We salute the retune of Jan after a few months of absence and David Cheung was playing his 4th game for LC. The winner today was Josef Winter with an impressive 86 for 39 points, followed in second by Mike Williams (lowest gross) playing his hdc 83 for 36 points, and in third place was Ricardo Castro with a reasonable 84 for 34 points. With the last game of May, the winner of the monthly competition is Helmut Dicknoether with an impressive 85 points, second Ricardo Castro with 79 points, and third Bernhard Romahn with 76 points. With these results, Ricardo Castro increased his lead in the LC of the year competition with 70 points followed by Bipan Kapur and Iain Wise with 48 points and not too far Helmut Dicknoether with 40 points. Thank you all for keeping supporting our society.

Cheers

TASIK PUTERI REPORT-24-05-2022

Cannon’s

It was nice to play again Tasik Puteri, after a long absence and the course (Puteri & Putera) was in a good condition but slow greens, costing a few more extra strokes to everyone. We welcomed Chia to his first game with us (Sleeve of balls as a welcome gift) and congratulations to our new two full members Hans Benn and Roland Steiner (Sleeve of balls, LC Cap, and LC tag as a gift) to commemorate the moment. Also our birthday boy Dave Evans got his late gift (Pair of Puma socks). Great results with only one player scoring below 30 points which reflects how playable was the course today. The winner today was Helmut Dicknoether with an excellent (his best score ever) with 84 for 46 points, followed by Bernhard Romahn in second with another impressive score of 82 for 42 points, and in third place was Ricardo Castro with an excellent 79 for 40 points with one Eagle on his belt (Putera par-five hole # 13) and Hans Berger with an impressive 111 for 40 points (well done Hans). With these results, the May competition shows now in first place Helmut Dicknoether with 85 points followed closely by Ricardo Castro with 79 and Bernhard Romahn with 76, so the last game will be an interesting fight for the monthly winner competition. We all wish safe travels to Dave Evans and Erol Akinci and hope to see you guys soon on the golf course. Next week will be the last game of May at Nilai Springs, so wish you all a great week and stay safe.

Cheers

Ricardo
