Next Up: Sunday 23rd September 2018 Jagorawi 9.30am shotgun

Geoff Thwaites, Tee Set’s former President and current sponsor, will be turning 75 years old on Sunday 23rd September. Showing us all that age is just a number, Geoff will be bringing all of his 50 years of golfing experience in Indonesia to bear as he competes for Tee Set in the Inter-League match before celebrating with all of us by hosting the Bandung Band and a light BBQ at Jagorawi from 3pm. He invites all Tee Setters and Inter-League players from the other teams to come hand help share a trip down memory lane and also toast his landmark birthday. Feel free to bring a bottle to help oil the afternoon!

With DOGs playing also on Sunday near-by, we hope some will be able to stop off on the way home since the party is not likely to finish early 🙂

 

On the golfing side, following the summer break, Sunday sees us take the short trip down the Jagorawi Toll as we return for our fourth visit of the year to Jagorawi Golf & Country Club. JGCC is an excellent test of golf and always in great condition.

Sunday’s event is open to all Tee Set players and we will select the Inter-League team from those who have signed up to play on Sunday. JIL Tee Set Team members who have confirmed their availability are therefore requested to also sign up as usual and please bring your Green Tee Set shirt for playing in.

Start time is 9.30am as usual for the Interleague week-end and we will have a shot-gun start so please be at the course and registered for around 8.30am so we can allocate holes and groups in time to get out at 9.15am for the start.

Sunday 16th September 2018: Padang Modern

The Day

After a couple of visits which were cancelled due to competing events at the course, Sunday saw us return to Padang Modern where we were welcomed and well looked after as usual. A modest group of 27 players on the day with no new comers and only one welcome back of note to Jochen Overberg who joined us after almost 6 months.

Bright skies, a light wind and getting off on time at 12pm saw us round relatively quickly and able to complete the presentations well before dark. This left us plenty of time to talk through the round over some refreshments and still get home in good time.

Registrations and scoring were again ably managed by VP Ric Wymer so a thank you to Ric for helping make the day go smoothly. Pictures of the day can be found here.

The Play

With small greens, running hard and fast, making it hard to keep the ball on the green and not overly challenging Blue Tee boxes in play, the treasurer had to be content with only 1 fine on the day with Rudie Basson breaking a potential 5 way tie for Most Strokes to win the Monkey for his 10 on a hole. Most Improved went to Rosie Putri who came back 8 strokes improved on her outward 9 and our First (& only) Sandy recorded on the day went to Joshua Alexander.

Low Putts went to Simon Oxley for his return of 26 strokes on the greens and First Birdie to Chris Lever for his effort on hole 5. Low Gross on the day went to Jeff Landau for his 79 off the stick.

With our Low Net winners delayed in the showers, we had to capture them later on with Lorenzo Marengo (Low B net 73) and Mike Harling (Low C net 72) reappearing in time for the presentations. Low Net A after a net 72 Richard Mau had already departed due to another engagement.

Congratulations also to Lorenzo who had an eagle on the day on hole 5 which you can check out along with the rest of the detailed results here.

Sunday 9th September 2018 Imperial Golf Klub

The Day

With the Tee Set Committee reverting to the previous practice of preparing sign-ups and cards on a Friday evening, the recent habit of many Tee Setters to sign up late was to create some scrambling as we ran out of the extra blank scoring cards and the course needed to push back another group to allow our extra flights beyond those advised based on the sign-ups.

However, Tee Set is nothing but accommodating and welcoming to all who turn-up and with the course also helping out the VP in sorting out the extra tee times with the main group, we got everybody out and round without any issues.

No eagles, a few birdies and plenty of geese on the course to keep us company as we enjoyed a perfect golfing day under blue skies, a far cry from the previous Sunday at Riverside.

One newcomer today, Rennie Putri who was given a warm Tee Set welcome and a couple of notable welcome backs with Geary Bowles joining us after 80 weeks and Tim Knight after 50 weeks. We hope to see you all back soon.

In the absence of the President, VP Ric Wymer took the reins and was ably assisted by Mark Johnson, Rennie Putri and Santi Miller to ensure the registrations and prize giving went as smoothly as possible. Many thanks to them all and to Beby who ensured we could all play off our updated handicaps after updating a months worth of cards. Photos of the day are here.

The Play

 

No shortage of fines this week with 6 players tied for Most Strokes and 6 enjoying the thrill of searching through the Tee Set dress up bag for their Skirt photo. Although some cards were missing, the recorded Most Strokes was shared between Bill Bigelow, Detlef Blumke, Laurie O’Connor, Matt McGowan, Ric Wymer and Rosie Putri whilst our skirt “winners” were Detlef, Ian Butcher, Jongchun Kim, Richard Green, Dirk Kruip and Simon Oxley. Less crowded was the Monster Putter leaderboard with Hana Ariestya out on top with her 42 strokes on the greens.

Richard Green won his money back with Most Improved of 7 whilst Laurie O’Connor was also in the black again after taking the money from a 4 way tie of Low Putts on 30 also including Don Duttlinger, Ric Wymer and Mark Fiorello. First Birdie went to Gary Mond for his effort on hole 5.

First Sandy on Hole 1 was shared between Andrew Waite and Santi Miller whilst Jeff Landau took home Low Gross after his round of 80.

Low Gross Winners on the day in the respective grades were Ken Runyon (70), VP Ric Wymer (68) and Dirk Kruip (77). Ken’s alter ego Mark Johnson collecting his prize as we had a snafu in managing the late registrations … another good reason to sign up early; we trust Mark and Ken will work out the prize giving side between them on a future week.

Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results of the day are here.

Tee Set Match-Play

Our first semi-final was completed on Sunday with Jens Roestel and Matthew Powell enjoying a very close match in which no less than 12 holes were halved. In the end Jens won the 18th hole and the match 1up to go through from the Kuning bracket to face the Emas winner for the Ric Wymer Match Play Trophy. Santi Miller and Matt Otto will play out the Emas bracket match in a couple of weeks so we will then know our 2 finalists.

Sunday 2nd September 2018: Riverside

A great Day, ultimately a wash out

Riverside is one of our popular courses, which tests all of the Tee Set community and does not give up a good score easily. This Sunday saw 32 Tee Setters take the short trip down the Jagorawi Toll to test their skills against the tricky Greg Norman layout and enjoy a fun day in team pairs as we tried out a new event format of Russian Stableford.

16 teams were paired up and organized for our 4 hole shot-gun start, kindly organized by the Riverside GM Peng Siong, who also joined us for the day. After an explanation on the scoring rules we all headed out under bright sunny skies to tackle the course.

Amongst the early movers were President Roger Finnie and partner Len Ogembo who scored a birdie and par on a stroke hole which also was their first Russian scoring hole for 12 points. However by the time we made the turn, Lis Wymer, taking style lessons from playing partner, GM Peng Siong, were tearing up the course on the back of Lis’ 43 outward half to register an impressive 45 points.

Sadly for all of us, this is when the heavens opened and we were forced to seek shelter from the “Mother of All Storms” which descended rapidly over the course. With very high winds and laterally driven rain, the course suffered extensive damage as several trees fell across the course and cart paths. This made the course unplayable and so play was abandoned for the day.

 Whist the course maintenance crew cleared the roads of fallen trees so we could go home, we showered and headed to the bar where, in lieu of prizes, we enjoyed a couple of rounds of our sponsors product which happened (!) to be on special for our visit.

Naturally this led to plenty of banter and despite no prize giving, the Tee Set outfits made their customary appearance to the amusement of those who stayed. Best dressed went to Rosie and Arne…

We have been promised a reduced rate for our next visit in lieu of the rain check and details of this will be provided as soon as they are confirmed with Riverside’s management. Naturally the ride home was a little wet but all made it safely back.

Next Up Riverside 12pm Sunday 2nd September 2018

RiversideThe 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.

This week we will be mixing up the format of our games by holding a Russian Stableford event. Played in 2 man teams, your stableford scores will be counted together for a team score but with a twist. Whilst on 12 holes your two scores will be added together, on holes 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 they will be multiplied together to give us that Russian twist….. ie., if your team scores on a hole are 2 points and 4 points you will score a team 6 points (2+4) on the regular holes whilst on the special holes above your team will get 8 points (2*4). Obviously a player scoring 0 on those special holes will wipe the team score as 0 times anything is still 0! Prizes for the best 3 teams will be awarded on the day.

Find yourself a partner and come and join in the fun – tell us in the comments section who your partner is. Don’t have a partner?; still come along and we will pair you up on the day. Confused about the scoring? President Roger Finnie will manage all the queries on the day.

To join us for the fun of this unique format and the challenge of one of Jakarta’s finest courses on Sunday just sign up here as usual. Green fees of Rp750,000 including a shared cart with a tee time of 12.00pm: please be there around 11.00am as we should have a shot-gun start so it takes a little more time to get bags/players organized and out to the respective holes.
