Results – Kota Sieramas Golf & Country Club – 18th August 2020

Another beautiful golf day at Kota Seriemas. 12 members made their way to the deep South of KL to play some golf. A little after 8 am we took off. Unfortunately the first 2 flights were positioned behind a group of local clowns who caused a considerable delay most of the morning. The 3rd flight starting at hole 1 was about 30 minutes faster than the other 2 starting from 10. Other than that the course was in very good shape as always and a pleasure to play and also the weather conditions were very pleasant.

We also welcomed back a few of our “lost in lock down” members; Aftab and Josef. Aftab managed to escape Trumpistan but will leave us soon again to continue his life in Istanbul. Josef finally worked his way out of Germany.

Lunch was at East of highway where we also celebrated another milestone; Brian’s 200th game with the Loose Cannons. A generous donation supported the beer bill. Thanks Brian. Erol took the mystery prize for playing most golf.; a sleeve of balls. 

Results

The money today went all the way to Portugal. Let’s hope they spend it wisely; Ricardo winning with 82/38 and also playing lowest gross. Shared 2nd Bernard and Brian both 37 points and Dave continuing his good golf flow with a 3rd place scoring 98/36. See all results below.

The monthly ranking hasn’t changed with Graham and Dave still leading with both 81 points, closely followed by Ricardo and Brian. It’s hot at the top. Decision next week!!

Results – Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club – 30th June 2020

We had 11 members and our guest (new member) Andrew Morrow, playing Kota Seriemas all the way to the far South of Malaysia. They have good deals right now like many other courses. And it was worthwhile doing it.

The course is in great shape and not very busy at the moment. Again teeing off before 8:00 am on a beautiful morning, light breeze; perfect conditions. Not all of us took advantage of that but one did and made a strong statement.

Interesting to find out that the emergency number in case of buggy breakdown doesn’t get answered. So I left my buggy behind and joined buggy with Siggy for the remaining holes. That actually helped to improve my game so he will be my caddy for the rest of the season. We had a quick round and all returned at the clubhouse before 12:00. The showers were not open in contrast to earlier experiences and information so 9 smelly old men turned up at East of Highway to have wonderful food and a few beers. Andrew did some lavish ordering of food so the usual RM50 was not enough but it all tasted great. 

Results

Brian demolished the course and came home with 93/44 winning the mid year game. Second today Dave with a respectable 100/39 followed by Iain 93/38.

The mystery prize for today was the last par. Iain took that home; a LC cap. The monthly medal goes to Mighty Mike again; 2nd medal in a row. Brian’s 44 today was just not enough to catch up with him, ending second in June. Shared 3rd Ricardo and Siggy.

Half way through 2020 Iain is leading the annual competition, followed by Mike and Ricardo.See all scores and rankings below.

Results – Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club – 28th January 2020

Bernie Schobert had to pull-out late last evening due to an old neck injury, so we were one short of four flights.

We were all there early this morning but as when I came to the registration a Korean caretaker were already there finishing up their registration, however we were able to tee-off ahead of that smaller group. An hour later or so the big bulk of them had arrived filling the area, some of them were sporty dressed-up good looking head-turners, that we don’t see around during the Korean off-season. One would think the clubs are very happy about the number of Koreans playing here during their winter

It was a warm humid morning with no breeze although later in the game we got a little breeze. The course were in a good nick but a bit dry in certain sections and e.g. shipping into to green cased many long returning puts, so it was a mixed feeling i would say.

We were just short of two players at the post game lunch at East of Highway, that really made my last convener game more memorable with that high “noise” level.  Obviously the group had sent the hat around as I received a bottle Portuguese Wine, a very nice T-shirt and a box of golf balls, many thanks for that. Actually there is one more thing to arrived later I learned, that’s okay as good things take longer time.

And the winner is

Mike Smith came up from Melaka to make sure the convener transition followed the rules, came second with 37 points. Shared third Bernard Romahn and Roger Surieux with 36.

We had 570Rm left in the kitty so that was all spent on food and drinks and drinks, I topped up the difference to close the bill.

How has the three years as convener task been, nice and mostly fun I would say and I have no regrets at all.

Many Thanks Everyone – Hans

With the late entry of Jason Winter, we had 5 full flights for the end of April Trophy Game at Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club. We had an early tee time of 7:30am and we got off on both 9’s at around 7:45am. Weather conditions were cool and overcast and with a sprinkling of rain during a few holes of our first 9 holes it was very cool and pleasant. The course conditions were good and with very few other players on the course, the first groups were finished at around 11:30am.

Lunch after the game was at our favourite East of Highway Restaurant which never fails to please. We had 3 birthday contributions to the kitty today so big thanks and Happy Birthday to Hans Berger, Ted Parslow, and Roger Surieux.

The February Trophy game was held at Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club with an early teeoff at 7:20am which required us to be at the club by 6:40am! With 22 players we got off on two tee boxes and most of us made good time round the course. Course conditions were good and the weather excellent with a nice cooling breeze blowing.

After the game we had lunch at the rather expensive Restoran Loon Sing even with great effort on Tony’s part to choose the cheapest dishes. Probably better to drive an extra 20 mins or so to East of Highway Restaurant in future

The winner of the February Trophy …. or medal …… was Martin Belderink with a score of 93 for 38 points.

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.

The Monthly Trophy Game was held at Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club with 5 flights, 20 players and one guest. The course was relatively quiet so we got way sharp at 8:00am under wonderful conditions. The course was in good condition generally but we did notice that the tees were very dry and bare and the greens were not as good as before.

After the game we retired to the Loon Sing Restaurant close to the highway for lunch and the prize ceremony.

Results – Kota Sieremas Golf & Country Club – 26th December 2017

IMG_6831For the last game of the year and our trophy game for December we played at the beautiful Kota Sieremas Golf & Country Club. 15 players turned up after the post Xmas celebrations and we all got off on the 1st tee around 8:00am. Weather conditions were very good and the course was in very good shape. The greens were a little damp and slow over the first 9 holes but by the back nine the greens had dried out and were running faster. Play was speeded up as we could take the buggies on course (for an extra fee of course!)

After the game we had lunch at Restoran Loon Sing at the other side of Nilai and close to the highway. The lunch food was not the best but we managed to get out without breaking the bank as this restaurant can be expensive if you choose wrongly.

Results

The winner of the December Trophy was Peter May with a score of 104 for 36 points. Runner up was Kaz Takita with 101 for 32. Best gross of the day was Niall Murray with an 83. Full results below:

IMG_5540

The monthly trophy game for September was held at the scenic Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club. Although the early morning weather looked very doubtful with a large band of rolling dark clouds coming in over the course it cleared up quickly and the conditions were very pleasant all the way round. The course was in good condition and we all got round fairly quickly with the first 2 groups finished and in the restaurant by 12:30pm.

The after game lunch was at Loon Sing Restaurant which tends to be expensive for what it offers and it would probably be just as well to head back down the road to East of Highway Restaurant in future.

Many thanks to Iain Wise who donated RM200 to the kitty to celebrate his recent 200th game.

Results

The winner of the monthly trophy for September was Kevin Wiggins with an excellent 82 for 43 points (even par gross 36 on his back 9!).

Runner up was Ricardo Castro with 82 for 41. Bets gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with a 79 and most golf was Ray Funnell. Full results below:
