Summary of the 20 most important rules changes for 2019.
We had 4 full flights today at Bukit Kemuning, with 2 flights teeing off on each of the nines at 8:00am. Weather conditions were pleasant and the course was relatively good making for some good scores today.
After the game we had a good lunch at the O&S Restaurant in Bukit Kemuning with a few nice cold beers.
The winner this week was Brian Stubbs with an excellent 95 for 42 points. Runner up was Ted Parslow with 83 for 39 points. Best gross today was Geoff McLaws with a 77. Full results tabulated below:
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.
The winner of the August Trophy was Geoff McLaws with a score of 76 (best gross) for 38 points.
Runner up was Tony Morris with 91 for 37 points. Full results below:
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.
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.
Our winner this week was Andrew Robinson, returning from a long trip in UK with almost no golf, with an excellent score of 92 for 43 points. Runner up was Aftab Ahmad with a score of 90 for 41 points. Geoff McLaws had best gross of the day with his 76. Full results below:
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.
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:
Today, we played LC’s game at Tasik Putri CG, 12 players signed-up for this game. The registration was quite smooth, as everyone showed up on time. Weather was not too bad and the golf course was in good condition.
Glad to see George Murray after a long-time, he played great game.
Welcomed back Hans Berger; Yes, our full-time convener & organizer for LC games. Lunch was at the club attended by 10 players.
Today’s winner was Ricardo Castro (82 – 39 points) on OCB. The second place was George Murray (101 – 39 points) and third place Aftab (95 – 36 points).
The Monthly Trophy game for July was held at KGSAAS under the temporary convenorship of Aftab Ahmad. It was a slick registration for the 15 players and we were off sharp at just before 8:00am on the Alam Shah and President 9’s. Course conditions were very good although some players complained about the different green speeds between the 9’s. Weather was very favourable and quite hot by the time we finished. Lunch was taken at the clubhouse and attended by all 15 players.
The winner of the July Monthly Trophy was Geoff McLaws with an excellent round of 77 for 38 points.
Joint runners up were Ted Parslow and Graham Cadman both on 37 points. Full results below:
With Hans Berger away on Summer vacation it was Ted Parslow who arranged today’s Loose Cannon’s game at KGPA. We originally had 18 signed up but with 2 late pull-outs it was 16 making a nice round 4 flights.
We welcomed back Geoff Parslow to the group who has not played for some time and Paul Geddes’ guest Lewis Marr.
We teed’ off on the Lakes 9 at 8:30am prompt and then finished on the Forest 9. Weather was good and the course was in good condition so it made for a good morning.
After the game 13 of the 16 players took lunch at Pantai Seafood Restaurant throwing back quite a few cold beers in the process.
The winner this week was Kaz Takita with a score of 89 for 39 points, ocb from Ricardo Castro who also scored 39 points. 3rd place was shared between Ted Parslow (85 for 38) and Stuart Taylor (84 for 38). Full results below:
There were only 8 players and 2 flights today for our game today at the wonderful Templer Park kindly arranged by Kaz Takita.
We got off early at just after 8:00am and with the course being very quiet we made good time around the 18 holes. The course was in fine condition but as always a little tricky to conquer. We all finished by 12:30pm and had a nice lunch in the clubhouse after the game.
We had one interesting situation today at the Par 5 12th hole where Stuart Taylor hit his first drive right and it was maybe 50/50 so he hit a provisional ball which was ok in the fairway. On getting down to the point where his first ball may have been a ball was suddenly and miraculoulsy thrown down from the slope by a monkey! There was a troop of them sitting up there at the top of the hill. There was no way to determine wher the original ball may have been so Stuart had to play the ball as it lay which was below a small wiry bush just off the fairway making his 2nd shot rather difficult. he got away with a luck bogey on that hole aftre two-hitting out the bunker then chipping in!! Must train that monkey a but better to throw the ball ON to the fairway!!
The winner today was Stuart Taylor with a gross 87 (best of the day) for 35 points. Runner up was Siegmund Maierbrugger with 93 for 33 poimts. Full results below:
We had 13 players today signed up for the game at Bukit Kemuning but only 12 ready to start at the appointed meeting time – Bernard apparently got lost even though he has been at this club numeorius times. We also had a problem in that the locker lady had not shown so we could not access the changing rooms. However a fairly efficient registration meant we started 10 minutes late and by that time our last member, Bernard Romahn, had finally made it to the club resulting in a 3rd flight of 5 players!
The course was in fairly good condition and relatively quiet making for a quick round. The greens were somewhat bumpy resulting in some erratic putting. Weather was good and we were all finished and in the restauarant by just after 12 noon. Good food and plenty of cold beer was served at the O&S Restaurant in Kota Kemuning rounding off the day nicely.
The winner today was Kaz Takita with a great score of 87 for 41 points. Runner up was Reinli Tan with a score of 92 for 40 points. Best gross was Paul Geddes with an 81. Full results below:
