Results – Nilai Springs Golf & Country Club – 14th August 2018

IMG_1560

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:

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.

Results – Templer Park Country Club – 17 July 2018

IMG_1087

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!!

Results

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:

Results – Impian Golf & Country Club – 3rd July 2018

Sixteen Loose Cannons had signed-up for the game at this very nice course, they all made it in time except for myself as I was hit ~ 20 degree from behind while cruising at a comfortable speed on the triple lane highway. Time for my oldie to visit the body-shop again.
Weather was nice, the course played a bit difficult today as the green were sanded. As many times before the slow walking playing members added to the time consumed, but in general takes more time to play.
Nine assembled at the Crab House for the post game lunch, the food is good but the surroundings is like a mini war-zone area.

Results

So who had his game under control?
– winner was Ted Parslow with 39 points
– second Martin Belderink with 35 points
– shared third Andrew Robinson, Stan Constantinides, Ricardo Castro and Mike Williams with 34 points.

From next week I will be back home hugging my grandchildren and what have you back there so the following volunteers will take over; Paul Geddes will do 10/7, Kaz Takita 17/7, Ted Parslow 24/7, Kevin Wiggins 31/7 and Aftab Ahmad 7/8.
Congratulation to the English and Swedish football teams to their victory and I look forward to see them play each other in the 1/4 final in Samara on Saturday.

Results – Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club – 26 June 2018

Kaz at the hole 11 tee boxKota Seriemas were in pretty good nick compare to when we played it last time Feb 26, although some greens still had the hollow tining not completely recovered from. We were the only players at that early hours and the weather were cloudy at first with a little bit of wind until the sun came through, quite nice actually.

No one run away with a high number of points so at the top three it were pretty tight.

IMG_9890

We had 3 full flights this morning at Amverton Cove and we started promptly at just before 8:00am. The course was in pretty good shape and the weather pleasantly cool. We made good time round the course then retired to the usual restaurant just over the bridge after the game for some much needed refreshments. Food was passable but surprised a Chinese restaurant had run out of chilli!!!

Results – The Mines Resort & Golf Club – 5th June 2018

For many of us this was the first time to play The Mines and what a great experience it was.Registration was smooth and uneventful and the same should have been said about our 2 Tee Box Start had not a number of our players ignored your Temporary Convenors clear written instructions and in their excitement to start stormed off to Tee Box 1 rather than Tee Box 10.Having finally decided they needed to storm back to Tee Box 10 they risked falling behind a pretty large contingent of LEGGS Lady Players.But Robinson was having none of this and led his foursome straight onto the Teebox and fired away before the Ladies could raise a word of complaint.This probably raises serious doubts whether the Annual Competition v LEGGS will take place this year !!!!
The course was in great condition.For a change we had truly professional well trained Caddies and we all finished right around the 4 hour mark.So for a change not a word of complaint from anybody !!!!!
This was also a day of surprises as far as the finishing spots were concerned.Usual prematch favourites Collett,Morris,Geddes and Castro athough playing pretty much to handicap were unable to match the form of 3 of our outsiders who upset the form book and came in as follows

The kitty was amply funded with Birthday Contributions from Martin,Stan and also from Peter to mark his record breaking day.
Amid obvious signs of discontent from the Membership over the Organizational Screw Up on Tee Boxes 1 and 10 it became clear over lunch that Temporary Convenor Wiggins position was no longer tenable.Our Cultural Attache Kaz Takita suggested that the only honourable way out was a Ritual Disemboweling and Beheading but this was voted down by the narrowest of Margins of 8 to 7 and TC Wiggins was allowed to resign with immediate effect but with the stipulation that he would never run for office again
With that Tony Morris was immediately voted in as new temporary Convenor and his first acts were to order lashings of more beer and rebook The MINES for next week

Results – Sungai Long – 30th May 2018

img_0864Today we had the pleasure of playing Sungai Long and boy what a joy it was.The course was absolutely immaculate.From Tee to Green everything was in perfect condition and we couldnt have asked for more.With Berger and Wiggins forming the perfect starting partnership Registration was a breeze and 16 eager golfers were chomping at the bit for a fast start @ 7.50 and a timely finish at 11.45 – 12.30
Even our Resident Greyhound Tony was in  very laid back mood today and played at what for him was a very leisurely pace.Although it should be noted his playing partners kept him very busy driving the buggy,keeping the scorecard, looking for numerous lost balls (Paul) and raking bunkers

Results

Our 3 players in the winning circle all played above handicap so congratulations to
Stan 89/39
Niall 77/38
Andrew 100/37

Correction : Niall Murray’s gross should be 77 NOT 78 in above table.
Additional Congratulations of course also go out to Stan for winning the Coveted Monthly Medal, which  comes with a Prestigious Trophy and so much prize money it cant be mentioned (Rory eat your heart out !!!!!) and (Fat Lady keeps your hands off !!!!)
Your temporary Convenor for the Day Wiggins (I cant do this much longer for obvious health reasons) felt he had got away with a pretty stress free day as Tony being the self sacrificing person that he is took it upon himself to organize the F&B to perfection for 8 of us (or was it 9 ???) which surprise surprise came to 50 RM a head
I didn’t think there was really anything else to report but in the best interests of the societyI think I need to point out to the membership in no uncertain terms that we have a totallyno go policy as far as DRUGS are concerned. I am sad to report that our 3rd place finisher today after a few beers at lunch mentioned that on Monday afternoons he is in the habit of taking a certain performance enhancing drug for recreational reasons and then goes on to point out that said drug is known to positively affect performance even into the following day. An immediate check of his scores did in fact demonstrate that whilst his Friday scores are totally crap, his Tuesday scores do show a marked improvement. Andrew enough is enough.This cant go on.You have to change your play date day.Weekends are probably tough so I strongly suggest you change to Wednesdays !!!!!
Finally we all wish Hans a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him leading the charge again asap
Your temporary convenor Wiggins….. who cant keep doing this too much longer !!!
