Tee Set Championship 2020 Cengkareng – Saturday 28th November

With  9 weeks to go until the last week-end in November, we have launched sign-ups and other arrangements for the 2020 Tee Set Championships. As announced already, after an 8 year run at Matoa, following earlier editions at Pangkalan Jati and Jagorawi, we have decided to make a move to Cengkareng Golf Course, home of the monthly medal for the past 3 years and a course where we have also been very well looked after. In a further refresh of arrangements, we have decided to hold the event on Saturday afternoon so that everyone can party the night away and still wake up for a Sunday game Matoa… just a little later than usual on the last Sunday of November and with our friends from the Djakarta Old Golf Society. A big thank you to the DOGS committee for accommodating our change in arrangements on this week-end.

As always, our sponsors are key to the event and we will be looking to both re-sign up our existing sponsors and secure some new ones to make the day run successfully; look out for a message from event coordinator Ric Wymer or even better, please contact him if you are able to help out.

More details on the day will follow soon but in the meantime, registrations are open here: 2020-tee-set-championship-registration/. The event field is limited to 100 players, so with 38 players already signed up, there are just 62 slots remaining….any extras go onto the waiting list on a first come first reserved basis. A list of those signed up is here so those who think they have signed up can check we got your registration… if you signed up but don’t see your name please contact Roger asap:  Sign Up tracking 2020

New course, new day, new timing… is it time for a new President.? With the existing President reaching his 4th Championship at the head of the Society, we will be calling for new blood to step-up and take Tee Set forward. Look out for details on how to put your name forward to take on this rewarding and illustrious position.

Last Call for tomorrow’s events

Sunday 20th September 2020 Riverside

The Day

An excellent turn-out of around 67 players at Riverside for Inter-League round 4 and Tee Set’s usual Sunday game for whom 38 chipped into the pot to join the competition. A big recognition to the Riverside team who took some learnings from the last visit and applied them to the arrangements this week, getting us all off smoothly and on time. The course was is in great condition and the main test of the day came from the weather which arrived just after we had teed off and was hanging around until the last couple of holes. Nevertheless, that did not seem to stop some very good scores being turned in so clearly a few of the group were comfortable in the wet conditions.

No photos yet available so a rather short report on the day; no newcomers either but warm welcome backs to Albert Smith (390 weeks), Malcom Hines (79), Matt McGowan (33) and Tapio Jarvenpaa (27).

A thank you to Fernando Gaggino and Jens Roestel for helping to manage the starting arrangements and registrations before the round.

The Play

No skirts today but Most Strokes was shared between David Baglivo and Paul Daud whilst although his putting stats are heading the in right direction, Patrick Chaundy kept his hands on the Monster Putter prize. Most Improved was Bill Lloyd whilst Bags redeemed himself finacially with First Sandy and Indar Dhaliwal took for First Par for Handicaps >=30.

Hot out the blocks were Mark Johnson and Tapio Jarvenpaa who scored birdies on their first holes whilst Divya Ahuja‘s chipping and putting saved a slightly off radar day to take home Low Putts.

Leading from the front was Tee Set Captain Simon Reynolds who won Low Gross whilst our Low Net winners were Dave Prosser, Mark Johnson and Tapio Jarvenpaa.

Congratulations to all the winners and detailed results are here: Riverside 2009 Results

Round 4 of the Jakarta Inter-league was being played this week too and with some many of the team playing well despite the conditions, they scored a well won victory 8-2 over Tin Cups. The other 2 matches finished 7-3 with Sandbaggers prevailing over Pocksia and Cloggies prevailing over Sentul Swingers. This sets up a winner takes all clash between Cloggies and Sandbaggers as the top 2 take on each other in the final round robin next month.

A flash back from the annals….

Wondering who playing in Tee Set 8 years ago as we went to Matoa for the first championships there? Your VP of Almost Everything has been cranking the handle on his old desktop and found this interesting ranking of Tee Set handicaps from September 2012. Tee Set Handicaps Sept 2012

An interesting snapshot of the Society 8 years ago and to see who has gone up and down since then… for those playing in Tee Set then you may have your memory jogged on some of your old sparing partners.

Riverside

This Sunday we again take the short trip back down to Junction 19 on the Jagorawi toll as we visit the excellent Riverside course. The Greg Norman designed Riverside is always one of the most interesting challenges on the Tee Set schedule with the Shark’s trademark optical illusions regularly fooling the unwary.

In addition to our weekly schedule, this Sunday is also the 4th round of the 2020 Jakarta Inter-League (JIL) season as Tee Set’s team, under the leadership of this year’s Captain Simon Reynolds, battle to regain the crown last won in 2015.

Sunday 13th September 2020 Takara

The Day

After a successful inaugural visit to Takara in February, we scheduled a return visit for last Sunday. Sign-ups were looking healthy until the announcement of the re-imposition of social distancing requirements in Jakarta and we lost around a third of those initially signed up to play such that a rather exclusive group of 16 Tee Setters were there to tee it up.

  

Although not particularly tricky, a lack of course knowledge or some unseen challenges again caught us out with only 2 players breaking net par this visit, there were only 3 last time too. Arrangements at the course however, were very smooth with us hitting off some 15 minutes early and getting round in good time on a course playing fast and hard but with the weather also perfect for golf.

No new comers this week and a welcome back to Richard Berg after 6 months away.

Many thanks to Simon Reynolds for making the booking and a huge thanks to Jens Roestel who stepped up and took care of the arrangements on the day.

The Play

A four-way tie for Most Strokes between Alastair Livingston, Bill Lloyd, Cucu Chandra and Richard Berg with a solitary skirt secured by Robert Watt and Monster Putter by Patrick Chaundy. Robert getting his money back with Low Putts and Bill for First Sandy.

First Birdie went to Jens Roestel whilst Richard Berg also was back in the money with Low Gross on the day. Our Low Net winners were James Bristow, Sami Kekonen and Tom Grace.

Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Takara 1309 Results

After a successful inaugural visit to Takara Golf Resort in February and following the good feedback we had from that visit, we have decided to add another visit to the schedule for this Sunday.

Takara is around 55 km west of Jakarta on the Tangerang-Merak Toll, exit one later than Kedaton at the East Balaraja Toll Gate 1 and head south – best look it up on google maps. Please allow 80-90 minutes to get there – last time the journey home was very smooth.

The distance is around the same as Rancamaya or Lotus Lakes but for those who usually taxi, we would be happy to help coordinate with other Tee Setters to arrange lift sharing if you are not able to find someone yourselves.

Sunday 6th September 2020 Jagorawi New Course

The Day

A healthy turnout of 35 Tee Setters at Jagorawi to tackle the New Course on Sunday with the weather proving to be just one of the challenges of the day with very hot and humid conditions challenging everyone to remain appropriately hydrated. Another of the challenges seemed to be reading emails sent on Friday & Saturday alerting everyone to the earlier tee time of 11.30am so, despite the course being ready for us, a few of the players were rocking up for a 12pm start. Thankfully, Arron Cole and his team were on top of things and a mini-shot gun allowed us to tee off in good time and with the course being relatively empty in front of us, we were round in good time.

The last of our little challenges was the fact that some of the caddies were new and inexperienced at driving the carts, this caused a few near misses and a couple of crashes before players worked out to drive themselves or walk were the safer options. All in the normal Tee Set day…..

A warm Tee Set welcome to Patrick Chaundy who joined for the first time and welcome backs to Supachai Suesomboon, Samret Raungrit, Joseph D’Cruz, Miguel Angel Veronesi and Jens Roestel.

A thank you to Lis Wymer for assisting with the weekly registrations and scoring on the day and to VP Ric Wymer for leading the prize-giving ceremonies in the continued absence of the President.

The Play

A couple of names very prominently featured on the results sheet. Firstly Max Selle who got the trifecta of booby prizes taking home a Skirt, Most Strokes and Monster Putter; being joined by Dmitri Burge for the Skirt and Jari Antikainen for Most Strokes.

Most Improved went to Alastair Livingston whilst Dmitri got his money back by taking home First Par for Handicaps >=30. First Sandy went to James Bristow whilst June Alexander took home First Birdie. Samret Raungrit took Low Putts.

The irrepressible VP Bill Lloyd pitched in on hole 6 for our only Eagle of the day whilst Richard Mau was up for any number of prizes but taking home Low Gross after his impressive round. Our Low Net winners were Gaurav Shirke, Supachai Suesomboon and Riahana Ariestya.

Detailed results are here: Jags 0609 Results and congratulations to all our winners.

Sunday 30th August 2020 Cengkareng

The Day

Sunday was the end of a long week-end of golf with the ever popular Asian Tigers 45 Hole tournament played on Friday, regular society games on Saturday and Tee Set’s monthly medal played on Sunday… fully 81 holes of golf for the most hardy or foolhardy! of us over 3 days. It may account for the late drop out of several players but with some last minute sign-ups we had a reasonable turnout of 43 players this week.

The weather was perfect for golf and we got round in reasonable time, although some groups got a little detached and found themselves behind one or two new groups who filled the gap… a reminder to everyone to try and keep up the pace of play please. The course was in good conditions with the greens playing a bit faster this week and the gentle breeze was enough to keep everyone thinking about club selection.

A warm Tee Set welcome to Pete Masters and a warm welcome back to Alyric Merriott after 52 weeks, Andy Briston (12 weeks), Manfred Borer (107 weeks), Paul Franklin (124 weeks) and Ronan O’Neill (61 weeks).

A big thank you to Craig Edwards for his assistance with registrations and to VP Ric Wymer for being the master of ceremonies and managing the scoring after the round. Having completed his operation, your President is now counting down the weeks to November when he hopes to be back in action….

A note of congratulations to VP Bill Lloyd on the success of his Asian Tigers 45 holes Challenge event on Friday. With 65 players taking on the 45 hole challenge and 29 players turning out for the more relaxed 18 hole version, the event had its largest turnout ever. Congratulations to regular Tee Setters Paul Daud and Lis Wymer who won Best Gross and Best Net on the 18 hole tournament. Gavin Webb and James Huang, respectively, took the prizes on the 45 Hole Challenge.

The Play

A SNAFU on the management of the database means we are unable to recover the results sheet for the usually excellent results summary. Apologies for any mistakes…but matching the scoring to the photos was slightly complicated by some winners going early after a long week-end of golf.

A trifecta of prizes for Dmitri Burge with his Most Strokes and Monster Putter being offset financially by Most Improved. Tom Grace joining Dmitri for Monster Putter and newcomer, Pete Masters sharing the Most Improved prize too. Michael Mueller and Timo Karonen were our only 2 skirts on the day, a rather low return for Cengkareng. Saving the family coffers, Cucu Chandra secured First Sandy along with Alastair Livingston.

Low Putter on the day was Craig Edwards and Low Gross Richard Mau whilst our Low Net prizes were secured by Santi Miller, Juju Juhaeriah and Graeme Bain.

James Bristow and Rosie Tjaden were our Long Drivers and Graeme Bain and Lis Wymer the Near Pins in the monthly medal skill prize categories.

Cleaning up however on the Monthly Medal was David Baglivo who returned 42 points to win by 1 point from Graeme Bain.

Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Cengkareng 3008 Results

Tee Set Eclectic Cycle XII

Congratulations to Jari Antikainen who took home the honours in the first completed cycle in 2020. Our 12th different winner so we still await the first 2-time winner as we enter Cycle XIII

Sunday saw our regular Tee Set event and JIL Round III at Riverside with 68 golfers turning out to play and 38 of these also joining into the Tee Set game. The course was in good condition and the weather spectacular all day which made for an excellent round once we got out onto the course.

Our only hiccup was a slightly delayed start for those scheduled on the back 9 semi shot gun as we needed to wait for carts and caddies to be available from the morning. A little frustrating at the time due to a lack of information but thank you to the Riverside GM for calling afterwards to apologize and explain that an unannounced, unscheduled  VVVIP group had decided to come and somewhat thrown arrangements awry. That said, we all finished in good time and despite fear of the long weekend traffic, the ride home was quick.

A warm Tee Set welcome to our newcomers, Steve Tucker and Rolf and Kikki Keil (pictured). Eric Mary at 10 weeks our only notable welcome back.  We look forward to seeing you all out again soon.

Thank you to the Singing President for his assistance with the morning’s registrations and to Lis Wymer for assisting with the scoring after the round.

The Play

No skirts today but as is often the case, our new-comers were recognized during the prize-giving, this week Rolf Keil for Most Strokes and Kikki Keil for Monster Putter. Bob Fleischmann was our Most Improved and Mark Johnson  First Sandy. Andy Coop won First Birdie and Roger Finnie was our Low Putter on the day. Some excellent scoring on the day, net and gross, and Tee Set Captain Simon Reynolds led the way with his excellent Low Gross of 76.

Our Low Net winners (after a flight correction) were Fernando Gaggino, Marcelo de Jesus and Christine Lie. Detailed results are here: Riverside 2308 Results

Christine was back up again for her Long Drive in the JIL novelty holes where she was joined by Harry Lopez (LD) and Alastair Livingston (NTP).

On the day Tee Set lost 3 matches by a very close margin and were pipped by JIL ladder leaders Cloggies 4-6 whilst elsewhere Sandbaggers beat Tin Cups 6-4 and Pocksia beat Sentul Swingers 8-2.

Thank you to everyone for turning out and congratulations to all the winners on the day.
