Results – Tasik Puteri – 6th February 2018

IMG_7470

With many of our regular players away on the WIGS tour we had only 15 players today at Tasik Puteri. Arriving at the club we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful new men’s changing room which had been renovated – a huge improvemnt on the old one.

We played the Puteri and Tasik 9’s and immediately noticed at the start that the newly printed scorecards were wrong in that the Puteri and Tasik 9’s both had the same odd indexes so we had to change the Tasik 9 indexes up by 1 to make them even.

The course was in good condition although the greens were slow. The weather was pleasant with some cloud cover giving us some respite from the heat.

After the game we had lunch at Restoran Chin Heong which was attended by 11 players.

Results – Tasik Puteri – 14th November 2017

IMG_6229

After some early morning light rain it was a cool morning for our 5 flights teeing off on the Puteri and Putera nines at Tasik Puteri. The course was in good shape but unfortunately the greens on Puteri had recently been hollowtined and were slow and bumpy making for quite a few 3 putts from our players.

We welcomed back Andrew Robinson to the group after his 7 month sabatical to recover from his broken leg. We also saw the return of an old face with Peter Barker joining us again after a 2 year hiatus.

After the game we had lunch at the club which was as usual disappointing with poor food and bad service. The general consensus from most players is that we should be using the Chin Heong Chinese Restaurant closeby to the club which offers much better quality and value …. a note for future games here.

Results – Tasik Puteri – 22nd August 2017

IMG_5130There were 5 flights today at Tasik Puteri and we all got off efficiently on the Putera and Puteri 9’s at 8:00am sharp. Weather was good, rather cool and overcast for the first hour or so making it a pleasant morning. The course was looking a little more scruffy than it usually does with overgrown tee boxes and various patches of long grass and GUR on the fairways. The greens were good though and provided some putting challenges on some of the holes.

We had lunch at the club after the game and as usual the food was rather ordinary and took a long time to come for many of us. I would recommend we return to the usual Chin Heong Restoran Chinese Restaurant at this venue the next time.

Results

Some good scores today at the top of the table with quite a few players bettering the ir handicap. The winner was Iain Wise with an excellent 86 for 44 points and continuing in hos post-holiday golf form.

We had 6 full flights at Tasik Puteri this morning for the monthly trophy game for March 2017. We all got off from two tee boxes on Puteri and Putera promptly at 8:00am after an efficient check in. Weather was good and the course, although a little wet in places, was in pretty good shape. By the end of the round it was getting hot but we all finished by around 12:30 with no hold ups which was good.

We had lunch at the usual Chin Hiong Restaurant back on the road towards Rawang for the prize giving. Stuart Taylor, having notched up 200 games with the group, kindly donated RM200 to the pot towards lunch and beers.

Results

The winner today of the Monthly Trophy for March 2017 was Roger McGowan with a tremendous 45 points and 92 gross. Runner up was Roger Surieux with 90 for 43. David Savage came 3rd (with his newly acquired official handicap of 17) and a score of 83 for 42 ….. his handicap will be severly cut next week due to his few games and this great score. Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with 80. Full scores tabulated below:

Results – Tasik Puteri – 31st January 2017

Will this wet weather never end? Tasik is one of the driest courses we play yet even here the course was very soggy with buggies restricted to the cart paths on most holes. But despite the soft conditions the course played well as reflected by the scores.

28 starters teed it up promptly on the Puteri & Putera 9’s in overcast and cool conditions. Light rain started to fall towards the end of the round but didn’t hold up play.

The winner of the first Trophy Game of 2017 was Tom Holmes (enjoying an extra days holiday) with 85 for 40 points. Tom, you are cut 4 strokes. Runner-up OCB was Charles Blanchet with 90 for 38 points from Martin Walsh 83 for 38. The lowest gross was 80 by Geoff McLaws.

Welcome back David Hughes for his regular 3 months break from the frozen north.

Lunch was at Restoran Chin Hiong attended by 25 of us. The beer was cold and the food expensive but good. Expected I suppose given the festive season but lets make sure we are not being ripped off by some of the places we regularly dine at.

Results – Tasik Puteri – 3rd January 2017

img_1891With everyone arriving on time (it’s amazing what the threat of a fine will achieve) 18 LC’s teed it up on the Puteri & Tasik 9’s at 7:45 and with no one ahead of us and excellent cool weather we were mostly all round in under 4 hours. The course was in good condition; particularly the Tasik 9 where the large greens were very nice.

Despite grumbling about the Tasik 9 (which he say’s he hates) the winner was Ray Funnell with 101 for 41 points (23 points on the Tasik 9!!!). Ray you are cut 5 strokes. Runner-up OCB was Tony Morris with 90 for 41 ahead of Ricardo Castro and Kevin Wiggins who both recorded 39 points. The lowest gross was 80 by Geoff McLaws.

Lunch was at the ever reliable Chin Hiong with 16 of us enjoying good grub and plenty of amber nectar. Ray couldn’t make lunch (which was just as well as he would have got a lot of stick) so his RM50 went into the pot. Thanks Ray.

Results – Tasik Puteri – 6th December 2016

img_1359It was a beautiful morning today as 6 full flights tee’d off on the Putera and Tasik nines at Tasik Puteri. The Putera nine was probably in the worst shape we have seen it for a long time … the greens were bad and very slow. The Tasik nine however was good although again some of the greens were suffering a bit. The weather was great and we had no hold ups round the course so we were all finished and then took lunch at the usual Chin Heong Restaurant close to the highway exit ….. well apart from Roger McGowan who had some navigational issues …. thank God he is still not flying!

Lunch was good washed down by quite a few cold beers kindly sponsored by Kevin Wiggins with RM200 who was celebrating a recent birthday and Mike Smith topped up the pot to the sum of RM600 who was also celebrating a birthday with a number larger than most of our birthdays! Cheers boys.

Worth of mention today:

  1. Peter Kenyon managed to hit the ball from the tee and land it behind him by hitting the bridge in front of the tee box
  2. Stuart Taylor pulled of an excellent recovery shot where his ball was right next to the lake on the 18th Par 5 hole by getting in the lake and playing his 2nd shot …. managed to recover with a bogey ….. and a very wet pair of golf shoes … video below:

Scores were not as good as usual at this course qualifying the earlier comment on the course condition, but our clear winner today, Kevin Wiggins, did well with an excellent 90 for 40 points (cut 4). It was so good to see Kevin win having made a come back from a long bout of illness and eventually made it to the winner’s podium again. Runner up was Peter Kenyon with 98 for 36 on count back from Mahmud Mohamed and Mike Williams. Best gross today was Geoff McLaws with an 80. Full results below:

The monthly trophy game for July was played at Tasik Puteri Golf & Country Club with 20 Loose cannons players plus 2 guests (welcome to David Schipano and Daniel Schipano) on a beautiful morning. The course was in pretty good condition and we got started on two tee boxes and got round the course in good time finishing by 12:00 – 12:30.

After the game we had lunch at Chin Heong Restoran on the outskirts of Rawang just before the entrance to the highway. The food was very good with an interesting assortment of “new food” including black pepper tau foo, deep fried tilapia origami and some large frog ordered by ReinLi Tan.
