Next Up: Riverside Sunday 1st November 2020 11.30am Shotgun

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.

This Sunday’s format will be a fun modified team scramble with teams of 4 playing together for some bottles of wine as prizes followed by a BBQ dinner, beers and the Jakarta Inter-League presentations. We will create teams on the day so no need to worry about this at registration but it you have a preferred group this is also fine – just tell us when you sign up.

The playing format is everyone tees off, pick the best drive then everyone plays their own ball into the hole from there. Each player scores their own stableford points and on par 3’s, all team members scores are counted, on par 4’s & 5’s, the best 2 team members scores are counted. Sum of points is the team score and the team with the most points will be the winner.

To join us for the fun of one of Jakarta’s finest courses on Sunday just sign up here as usual. Green fees of Rp850,000 including a shared cart and some free range balls with a tee time of 11.30pm.

Notes:

(1) please be registered before 11.00am as we will have a shot-gun start and it takes a little more time to get bags/players organized out to the respective holes

(2) as JIL will be played off the white tees for men, we will play the white tees for Tee Set too. Ladies remain on the red tees.

Hello to all Tee Setters from Afar

Messages received this week from 2 Tee Set members enjoying their golf overseas at present and being in the northern hemisphere, they are having a little cold snap. A warm hello and best wishes from Joshua Alexander who was out making good use of his Tee Set umbrella at Childworth Golf Club in Hampshire, UK and Jeff Durham who woke to a frosty morning back in Oklahoma, USA. Thank you gents and we hope to see you back here sometime in 2021.

Sunday 25th October 2020 Cengkareng

The Day

The October surprise may still be missing in the Presidential elections, a hot topic amongst some at the first tee as we waited to start, but what was no surprise was the excellent turn-out of 55 players for our monthly medal as October usually sees our largest turnout outside of our special events. A few darkening clouds and rumbles of thunder as we were on our first few holes did not bode well for getting around unscathed but in the end a few drops of rain were all that fell and everyone was round just in time with the last groups finishing as darkness fell.

The course was in great condition and the greens rolling well so we saw several good scores turned in. Although the course was very busy, we got round in reasonable time although a few gaps opened up within our flights which left those last out straining their eyes in the half light…. a reminder to everyone to try and keep up with the group ahead ….

After the round, although a few players needed to rush off early, many stayed and enjoyed the hospitality at the clubhouse and the special treats brought by Lily Bristow so a thank you to her for the pies and pastels…

A warm Tee Set welcome to our newcomers, Hugues Thierry and Adam & Cindy Green as well as a warm welcome back to Detlef Bluemke who was visiting again after 80 weeks. Many thanks to VP Ric Wymer for managing the results and presentations with the able asisstance of Juju Juhaeriah and to Craig Edwards who managed the morning’s registrations and tee time groups.

The Play

An absent Most Strokes winner as Detlef Bluemke needed to head off early and thus also missing the skirt photo but fortunately Ric Wymer, Mike Riley, Srinivas Murthy and Terrance Martin were all up for the photo. Susanne Holl took home Monster Putter.

First Sandy went to Tom Grace, First Eagle to Arnold Castillon and First Birdie to Dave Prosser.

Hugues Thierry was our Most Improved and Detlef Bluemke won First Par for Handicaps >=30 although both missed out on collecting their prizes. Sharing Low Putts was Supachai Suesomboon and Gaurav Shirke. Many excellent scores saw Dave Prosser up for Low Gross and Santi Miller, Mike Riley and Srinivas Murthy (on a count-back from Arnold Castillon) up for Low Net.

In our Monthly Medal skill prizes, Bill Lloyd was NTP and Gaurav Shirke and Santi Miller taking the Long Drive honours. Our Monthly Medalist, holding off the chasing pack, was Juju Juhaeriah who had an excellent return of 43 points.

Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Cengkareng 2510 Results

Sunday 18th October 2020 Rancamaya

The Day

A good turnout for the popular and pretty Rancamaya course which stepped up to host us at the last minute after Permata Sentul had a competition on the Sunday morning. We were to learn that so did Rancamaya but concerns were allayed when we found out it was a small members group and our arrangements were unaffected. However, to be safe a mini-shot gun was arranged and all was going well until the starter forgot we had been assigned the upstairs area for registrations and sent off half our groups before everyone was gathered in the correct groups meaning that we had a number of 2 balls spread out amongst our 4 balls.

All would have been fine but for some random groups getting inserted in the spaces between our players which delayed some groups sufficiently for them to get caught in the late afternoon downpour with around 3 or 4 holes to go. C’est la Vie and the risk of the area at the outset of the rainy season but the quality of the course and fresh mountain air meant most people were relaxed and several groups stayed for some late refreshments to avoid the rain affect toll traffic.

A warm welcome to Susanne Holl and to Sathaporn who joined us for the first time and welcome backs to Warut Waramit (35 weeks) and Sean Hill (24 weeks) along with the unmentioned President who was back after 2 months out for his knee operation.

Many thanks to VP Ric Wymer who managed the scoring and announcements and to Richard Mau for his assistance in the morning.

The Play

A hat-trick of fines this week with Sathaporn (Most Strokes) being joined by Monster Putter Richie Tiblani and our only skirt, much to the dismay of our Treasurer, Indar Dhaliwal.

Most Improved went to Tapio Jarvenpaa and First Par Handicaps >-30 to Susanne Holl who got a shirt in lieu of her prize money. First Birdie went to Jari Antikainen whilst Roger Finnie took home Low Putts.

Dave Prosser and Gurav Shirke shared Low Gross whilst Richard Mau, Jude Alexander and Michael Mueller were our Low Net winners.

Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Rancamaya 1810 Results

Sunday 11th October 2020 Riverside

The Day

A slightly overcast and therefore cooler day greeted the 68 golfers who arrived for Sunday’s game at Riverside which saw Sunday’s regular Tee Set outing being held in parallel to the final round-robin games of this year’s Jakarta Inter-League matches. A slight breeze and the course playing well ensured some good scores were returned. A big thank you again to the Riverside team for all their arrangements to look after us.

Although several players headed out early, many took the opportunity to chill after the game and enjoy a refreshment or 2 later into the evening.

A warm welcome to our newcomer Salmon Titus Agung and welcome backs to William Daniel and Graham Pasonage after 74 and 32 weeks, respectively. Thank you to VP Ric Wymer for taking care of the scoring and prize-giving and to Jens Roestel for assisting with the morning arrangements.

The Play

No skirts this week but Michael Seabrook cleaned up on the other booby prizes with Monster Putter and Most Strokes, the latter shared with Timo Karonen. First Sandy was taken by Alastair Livingston whilst Bill Lloyd and Juju Juhaeriah shared First Birdie and Santi Miller was our flat stick hero for Low Putts.

Low Gross was shared between Simon Reynolds and Richard Mau whilst David Prosser took Low Net honours alongside Supachai Suesomboon (Christine’s card being a late submission so sorry you missed out) and Lis Wymer. A special call out to Graham Parsonage who showed no signs of rust after his layoff and to Lis who shot an excellent 92 to take reclaim the Wymer Cup!

Congratulations to all the winners and the detailed results are here: Riverside 1110 Results

Jakarta Inter-League

Final round wins for Tee Set who finished strongly after a slow start to finish a credible 4th overall, Pocksia who climbed to 2nd in the final table and to Cloggies, who repelled the challenge of Sandbaggers in the match of the top 2 entering the final round, to win the 2020 JIL. Thank you to everyone who turned out during the season and a reminder there will be the end of season scramble event on 1st November. The 2020 final table and all results are here: https://teesetgolf.wordpress.com/interleague/

In the skill prizes this round, the Lawton family cleaned up long drives and another Cloggie, David Jessup took home NTP as they cleaned up completely on the day.

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.

Sunday 4th October 2020 Gading Raya

The Day

A welcome return to Gading Raya after a 3 1/2 month hiatus and a big thank you to the Gading team for their arrangements to make sure we had a smooth day. The course was playing in great condition, the rough cut down around the fringes and a relatively quick round all contributed to an excellent return on scores, gross and net, by many players.

Although we had an 11.30am start slated, the starter got the first groups off at 11.00am which left a few of the “just in time” arrivals to make a quick change and catch up with those already out on the course. A reminder that we try to open registrations and pairings an hour ahead of tee time each week. The early start and quick round meant an early finish so those not rushing away were able to sit and enjoy some refreshments and not be too late returning home.

No newcomers this week, covid shutdowns at the border making these a rarer occurrence in recent weeks, but some impressive welcome backs. Kayla and Scotty Graham (114 weeks), Nick Shearman (111), Marvin Abao (45) and the well rested in Bali, Craig Binks (23) all got a warm welcome back.

The Play

No skirts today but its hard to tell if the VP of Almost Everything should have dobbed himself in looking at the photos above…..he was however in the frame for Most Strokes along with Mike Harling, Nick Shearman, Sebastian Braun and Timo Karonen. Sebastian also was up for Monster Putter and Timo was also back up with Craig Binks but for Most Improved so a net winner on the day.

Congratulations to our birthday boy James Bristow who not only took home First Sandy but also got a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday sung to him… I’m told serenaded would have been the wrong description of the vocal skills around the room.! First Birdie went to Emiliano Marcelo whilst Low Putts with what we beleive is a new Tee Set record of 22 went to Kayla Graham. More impressively, she shot 82 gross off the blue tees on the day too.

In form Andy Coop took home Low Gross whilst our Low Net prizes went to Robert Watt, Doug McQuater and Jari Antikainen.

Congratulations to all our winners and the detailed results are here: Gading 0410 Results

Next Up Riverside Sunday 11th October 2020

11.30am shot gun

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 5th 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. For those interested in more details of JIL please see the website page here.

As usual, for those Tee Set players participating in JIL (whether for Tee Set or otherwise), please also sign up as normal for the weekly competition so we can capture you for both events.

To join us for the fun of one of Jakarta’s finest courses on Sunday just sign up here as usual. Green fees of Rp850,000 including a shared cart and some free range balls with a tee time of 11.30pm.

Notes:

(1) please be registered before 11.00am as we will have a shot-gun start and it takes a little more time to get bags/players organized out to the respective holes

(2) as JIL will be played off the white tees for men, we will play the white tees for Tee Set too. Ladies remain on the red tees.

Other Events

  • 30th October: ISCO & German Open Cup at Imperial  12.30pm tee off, includes lunch, dinner & prizes
  • 1st November: Yayasan TOPI Pitch & Putt charity day

Please check out the Classifieds Golf page for more details on signing up for either or both events.

Next Up: Gading Raya Sunday 4th October 2020

Back to one of our favourite courses as we head out down the Tangerang-Merak toll to Gading Raya where we are well looked after. This Graham Marsh design is a nice but challenging parkland style course and we usually see some good scores returned as it offers plenty of scoring opportunities for those playing well. Equally, the strategically placed bunkers and gentle turns in the fairways can present a challenge for the unwary. With early tee times, we’ll be finished nice and early with plenty of time to enjoy the service and refreshments in the clubhouse afterwards.

Tee times off 1 & 10 at 11.30am have been confirmed along with the attractive pricing of Rp850,000 with carts. If you are able to join us please sign up here and we look forward to seeing all who can make it on Sunday.

Sunday 27th September 2020 Cengkareng

The Day

Round 2 of the Eclectic XIII and our Monthly Medal attracted 35 players to the excellent Cengkareng course with several players no doubt happy to get some extra rounds in on our Championship course for 2020. The course has got better and better over the last few months after a bout of heavy rains and it played hard and fast, especially on the greens which resulted in an unusually high number of putts from some of our regulars.

The weather was perfect all day and the semi-finalists in the match-play went out as a group to engage in their respective battles to reach the final. More of that below. Michael Mueller, fresh off his excellent round on Saturday to secure a Big DOG in the DOGS Eclectic competition was clearly happy to cruise the course on Sunday, failing to find himself anywhere on the results summary as a result as he basked in his moment.

No newcomers this week and no notable welcome backs as a glitch in our registrations saw the wrong Supachai initially entered as joining…. apologies for that. Many thanks to Craig Edwards and an injured VP Ric Wymer for taking care of all the administrative duties on the day.

The Play

An unusual face up for Monster Putter as Juju Juhaeriah had a rare off day with the flat stick whilst our Monkey winner was Jari Antikainen who just pipped 4 others tied one stroke behind. Skirts as usual saw a small troupe up for the photo with David Baglivo joined by Holger Molendyk and Indar Dhaliwal.

Most Improved was Timo Karonen and First Sandy went to Supachai Suesomboon whilst Dave Prosser was our First Birdie awardee. Mike Evangelista took home Low Putts after a count-back.

Low Gross went to Gurav Shirke whilst our Low Net winners were Santi Miller, Arnold Castillon and Grant Lutz.

In the monthly medal prizes, David Baglivo was our NTP and Santi Miller and Dave Prosser took home the Long Drive accolades. An excellent 41 points from Arnold Castillon, often a winning score, was however pipped by the 43 points returned by Mark Johnson who therefore secured the Monthly Medal for September.

Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Cengkareng 2709 Results

Tee Set Match-Play Championships

The semi-final stage of this year’s competition were held this Sunday. On one side of the brackets, Mark Johnson was playing 2 time winner David Baglivo and David showed his competitive streak falling 1 down to Mark who also succeeded him as the Monthly Medalist. In the other bracket, Arnold Castillon continued his fine form and defeated James Bristow 6&5.

Mark and Arnold move onto the final and we look forward to a tight match between these 2 stalwarts of this year’s Inter-League team.
