Next Up Riverside Sunday 12th July 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.

In addition to our weekly schedule, this Sunday sees the much delayed 2nd round of the 2020 Jakarta Inter-League (JIL) season as Tee Set’s team, under the leadership of this year’s Captain Simon Reynolds, seeks 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.

Sunday 5th July 2020 Padang Modern

The Day

A return visit to Modern this week after a hiatus of 6 months saw 29 Tee Setters take on the flat but occasionally deceptive challenge of this Peter Thompson designed lay-out. The staff and starter were very welcoming and we were off at our booked time of 11.30am under bright skies. With the course being a little quieter in front of us, the other afternoon gathering teeing off afterwards, we were round in good time to have the scoring and prize-giving all finished before 5pm leaving several of us to enjoy a couple of refreshments before departing.

The fairways and greens were in good condition but the soft rough and deep bunkers provided a challenge for those straying from the straight and true as did the soft slightly muddy fringes; all of which added up to just 3 players scoring under their net par.

A warm welcome to Dimitri Burge who joined us for the first time and our only notable welcome back was Bruce Smart after 15 weeks. Thank you to all the Modern staff for their hospitality this visit and to VP Ric Wymer for managing the scoring and results on the day.

 

The Play

A second week joining us and a second skirt saw Andy Hyndman up for the skirt photo again where he was joined by Tim Fehling who completed the booby prize tri-fecta by also securing Monster Putter and Most Strokes. Andy who had arrived close to tee off and therefore rushed to the 1st tee, settled down during the round and was able to recover his fine by taking Most Improved. First Sandy went to Alastair Livingston.

Low Putts went to Jens Roestel and First Birdie to Dave Prosser. Low Gross was secured by Roger Finnie and our Low Net winners were Ian Pemberton, Sami Kekonen and Indar Dhaliwal.

Sunday 28th June 2020 Cengkareng Monthly Medal

The Day

Half way through the calendar year but only a month back to some normalcy in our weekly arrangements, Sunday saw 42 tee setters turn out for June’s monthly medal at the ever popular Cengkareng; although one card was missing at the end giving us 41 returns for the prize-giving.

A bright but overcast day with a strong blustery breeze ensured that the course generally got the better of us this visit with unusually only a small number of players at or below net par by the end of the day. Nevertheless, we were round in good time and able to enjoy the excellent hospitality of the Cengkareng team with the ladies leading the festivities after we had finished.

 A warm welcome to Andrew Hyndman and welcome backs to Rosie Putri, JP Seveke, Steve Sutton and Dave Barnes all after 18 weeks. Thanks to Craig Edwards for taking the lead with the morning pairings and registrations and to Michael Seabrook for helping VP Ric Wymer with the scoring entries post round.

The Play

Fresh from glory a couple of weeks back, Michael Seabrook was again staring in the prize giving albeit this week for Monster Putter and Most Strokes; he narrowly avoided the trifecta with the skirt being shared by newcomer Andrew Hyndman, Mark Johnson, Rob Nicholls, James Bristow and Indar Dhaliwal. Andrew was however able to recover his fine with First Par for handicaps >=30 whilst Most Improved went to Lis Wymer.

Michael Seabrook also recovered his fine with First Birdie, First Sandy went to Craig Edwards and Low Putts ended in a 5-way tie between Doug McQuater, Dave Barnes, Jude Alexander, Matt Roberts and Marcelo de Jesus.

Low Gross on the day went to Simon Reynolds whilst Ian Pemberton, Juju Juhaeriah and Cucu Chandra took home Low Nets.

In the Month Medal skill prizes, the Wymers took home NTP mens and ladies whilst Dave Prosser and Rosie Putri took out the Long Drives.

     

Our monthly medalist, medal to be presented next time the President is there, was Leon Bivolaru who pipped the ladies with an excellent return of 41 points. Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Cengkareng 0620 Results

Tee Set Match Play Championships

3 more games were completed on Sunday. Completing the first knock-out round saw Dave Barnes pip Dave Prosser 1up after Jens Roestel had beaten Tim Knight 5&4 the previous week at Riverside and Chris Lever had received a walk-over due to continuing work restrictions placed on Graham Parsonage which prevented him from being able to complete his match.

In the second knock-out round, Simon Reynolds outlasted Timo Karonen to win on the 19th hole whilst Leon Bivolaru beat Craig Edwards 8&7.

Thank you to everyone for their support in helping us get all first round matches completed by Sunday and a good head-start on catching up with the next round as we are few weeks behind. The updated schedule for the remaining rounds of the competition is now set out on the website and the next deadline is 26th July.

Sunday 21st June 2020 Gading Raya

The Day

Gading reopened at the beginning of June with limited operations so we were afforded an early tee time at 11.10am but with the course being quiet, we still managed to head out ahead of this for a truly early time for most Tee Setters. A sunny day book-ended our round with a heavy down-pour soaking most players as the first groups reached the turn. Despite the enforced break for 15-20 minutes, we were still round in good time and finished in just over 4 hours.

The Gading team looked after us very well and it was a pleasure to be back. The course played well despite the heavy rains further softening the fairways and leaving a few puddles to be navigated on the lower lying areas.

A special welcome to our 2 newcomers on the day, Joseph Chan and Gaurac Shirke, we hope you enjoyed the day and to see you back soon.

Many thanks to VP Ric Wymer for managing the scoring and results presentation and photos of the day are here.

The Play

Some excellent scores, some who got full value for the day but for all, it was great to be able to capture the awards for the first time since relaunching official events. First up, the ever popular skirt photo with Timo Karonen and Marcelo de Jesus being there to enjoy the dress-up bag. Most Strokes was taken by Benedikt Blenk and whilst Elena Viktoria had a tough day on the greens, she was also recovered the fine by taking Most Improved.

First Par for Handicaps >=30 was taken by Weera Limjirakajorn, 1st Sandy by Harry Lopez, and First Birdie by James Bristow. Our master of the flat stick this week was Juju Juhaeriah.

 

 

Jeff Landau came home in 36 for a fine round of 76 gross and our Low Net winners were Ronald Lim, Miguel Veronesi and Timo Toivonen.

Sunday 14th June 2020 Riverside and Juergen Degert Trophy

The Day

Sunday saw Djakarta Old Golf Society (DOGS) and Tee Set team up for a highly successful joint day with both their regular society days and the match for the Juergen Degert Trophy being held at the excellent Riverside venue. In total, we had 64 players turn out on the day and judging by the response after the round, its a format we should look at for another event. Juergen, a stalwart of both groups and the inspiration for the creation of the match, would have been proud to see the spirit of camaraderie and competition on display during the day, and perhaps even the consumption of it afterwards….

As always, a lot of work went into making the day run smoothly and so a big thank you to the following for their partnership with us:

  • The Riverside team and management for their support on the starting and restaurant arrangements: the pool side area was a great after-round venue and a lot of work went into setting it up on our behalf;
  • Werner and his team from Jason’s Meats for the BBQ and for offering to look after the stragglers who missed out on the full selection due to their late finish;
  • John Brown, Kevin Dobson and Craig Edwards from the DOGS Committee;
  • Team Captains Simon Reynolds and Doug McQuater

An early start for your President to ensure the set up was ready for the arrival of the players saw our sponsors buckets put to good use as collection receptacles in the morning and for their more normal usage during the post match festivities. A team photo before tee off captured the mood and we all headed out on schedule for a smooth and enjoyable round under perfect blue skies.

After play was finished, we gathered around the pool to enjoy a social evening with the BBQ whilst the scoring was completed and the winners on the day determined.

Thanks to the DOGS Committee for conducting the prize giving and to Jens Roestel for his help at registrations in the morning.

The Play

Although not everyone clearly read the pre-round posts, we had announced that the prizes on the day would be following the DOGS format and held as one competition to keep it simple.

Nearest the Pins were won by Takahash-san and Eric Mary, Drive & Pitches by Doug McQuater and Jari Antikainen and the Long Drives by Chris Cromarty and Edwin Thieroff – the latter quite an exceptional distance and for which there was much discussion afterwards as to whether it was all man-powered or sprinkler head assisted …. one which seemed to take several drinks to resolve.

Booby Prize (23 points) went to Craig Edwards and Kathy Scalabre got Most Exercise for her 115 gross. Richard Mau was the Putting Champion with just 24 putts required during the round whilst Alastair Livingston and Roger Finnie both navigated the course in 78 strokes, Roger winning the prize on a back nine count-back.

With great golfing conditions, the course playing well and bragging rights the line, there was no surprise that a number of great scores were turned in. A couple of 43 pointers were expecting to be in the hunt but they were eclipsed by Sami Kekonen who’s 47 points secured only the runners-up spot as Michael Seabrook found some long lost form to score 48 points on the day and secure the Little Dog trophy on offer this week.

In the match, a few close matches all fell the DOGS side of the ledger which led to a comfortable victory 7-3 and the trophy remaining in their cabinet for another year. Captain Doug McQuater was up to receive the trophy after the Captains had thanked their teams for their participation in what was an excellent match-up. Congratulations to DOGS and to all the winners on the day…. looking forward to the next one!

Next Up: Riverside and Match vs D.O.G.S. 14th June 2020

With the current round of the Jakarta Inter-League due to be held at Riverside this week being postponed until July 12th, we have taken the opportunity to re-arrange our annual fixture with the D.O.G.S. for the Juergen Degert Trophy. With D.O.G.S playing their current Eclectic cycle at Riverside too, the stars were obviously aligned for us to be able to slot in the fixture which has been running since 2015 and is named in honour of Juergen Degert, a long-time member of both Societies and the inspiration for the event. Captains Simon Reynolds (Tee Set) and Doug McQuater (DOGS) are putting the final touches on their teams as both Societies seek to win the trophy and bragging rights for the year… presently D.O.G.S. hold the trophy and a 3-1 lead in the series after the initial match in 2015 was drawn.

The day is open to everyone, whether playing in the match or just looking for a quiet Sunday round of golf with friends. To keep administration simple, both Societies will be running the skill and playing prizes as a joint event following the D.O.G.S. format of play so your weekly scorecard will follow a slightly different format but with the usual scoring for gross, stableford points, putts etc…. Following the round, there is a BBQ arranged around the Riverside pool and those wishing to partake in a dip should bring a towel and appropriate bathing wear.  When signing up, please confirm if you will be joining for the BBQ as we need to advise the chef of the numbers to prepare for… we will also be collecting the BBQ fee of Rp150k at the same time as the registration fee for the day so we will all be free to enjoy the post match celebrations and prize giving.

In terms of play, the match pairings will be arranged to play first and the rest of the players from both Societies will follow the match but we ask you be available and registered by 10.30am so we can inform the course on all the pairings and take advantage of an early start, semi shot gun or otherwise as we can arrange with the starter.

To join us for the fun of one of Jakarta’s finest courses on Sunday just sign up here as usual. Green fees of Rp800,000 including cart. As we are running a joint event there is no need to sign up to both Societies so please sign up here if you have not already signed up via D.O.G.S. & vice versa.

For those in the match, you may find the handicap on your match scorecard is a little different from the that on your daily play scorecard, this is not an administrative error but only a reflection that the match pairings were done on last week-end’s handicaps and the weekly cards reflect the latest handicap indices….

Forthcoming Tee Set Events

We are still busy sorting out the schedule and some dates which we are earmarking over the next couple of months are as follows:

  • JIL July 12th @ Riverside: Usual Tee Set Sunday event and next round of JIL (postponed from above date);

Sunday 7th June 2020 Emeralda

The Day

Another excellent turn-out for the pretty, challenging Emeralda course and with an early tee off planned for 11.00am, a big thank you to everyone who arrived early on what was a warm and sunny day.

Unfortunately, after 3 recent good experiences, we were to be let down by the course who firstly were not ready for us to tee off as scheduled, eventually the first ball was hit close to 45 minutes late, and when we did get onto the course, a constant stream of groups being inserted into our flights meant we were over 5 1/2 hours out on the course. Our first groups in were back some 6 1/2 hours after the scheduled start which meant we did not do our usual prize giving – winners to receive their prizes next time we see you.

We were able to use the morning’s delay to get last week’s monthly medal into the right hands with Hana passing over the trophy and the medal to the winner Mikko. We also were able to welcome our 7 newcomers: Willy Noronha, Shlok Rajeev, father and son Shivashish & Shashvat Pandey, Rajeev Rajeshwaren, Matt Roberts and Elena Viktoria Holovcsak. Welcome to Tee Set and we look forward to seeing you out with us again soon.

One award we did not miss however was the skirt which also gathered our 7 winners together briefly: Andy wood, Benedikt Blenk, David Baglivo, Fred Papachristidis-Bove, Jari Antikainen, Matt Roberts and Peter Bosterli who were also joined by last week’s awardees.

Thank you to Fred Papachristidis-Bove and Jens Roestel for their assistance before and after the round to help with the administration on the day.

The Play

Some excellent play with a fifth of the group being at or below handicap so congratulations to all our winners on the day. Detailed results are here: Emeralda 706 Results

Tee Set Match Play Championships

2 further matches were completed on Sunday, both at the second attempt as the first games were both halved. Timo Karonen won 4&2 against Santi Miller and David Baglivo beat Dan Javier 5&4.

A reminder that the rest of the first knock-out round matches are due to be completed by 28th June (previously 12th April) so we can complete the tournament by November as usual. Please also remember to submit your results by email to James Ross so he can update the competition’s progress.

Next Up: Riverside 14th June 2020 11.30am tee off

With the current round of the Jakarta Inter-League due to be held at Riverside this week being postponed until July 12th, we have taken the opportunity to re-arrange our annual fixture with the D.O.G.S. for the Juergen Degert Trophy. With D.O.G.S playing their current Eclectic cycle at Riverside too, the stars were obviously aligned for us to be able to slot in the fixture which has been running since 2015 and is named in honour of Juergen Degert, a long-time member of both Societies and the inspiration for the event. Captains Simon Reynolds (Tee Set) and Doug McQuater (DOGS) are putting the final touches on their teams as both Societies seek to win the trophy and bragging rights for the year… presently D.O.G.S. hold the trophy and a 3-1 lead in the series after the initial match in 2015 was drawn.

The day is open to everyone, whether playing in the match or just looking for a quiet Sunday round of golf with friends. To keep administration simple, both Societies will be running the skill and playing prizes as a joint event following the D.O.G.S. format of play so your weekly scorecard will follow a slightly different format but with the usual scoring for gross, stableford points, putts etc…. Following the round, there is a BBQ arranged around the Riverside pool and those wishing to partake in a dip should bring a towel and appropriate bathing wear.  When signing up, please confirm if you will be joining for the BBQ as we need to advise the chef of the numbers to prepare for… we will also be collecting the BBQ fee of Rp150k at the same time as the registration fee for the day so we will all be free to enjoy the post match celebrations and prize giving.

In terms of play, the match pairings will be arranged to play first and the rest of the players from both Societies will follow the match but we ask you be available and registered by 10.30am so we can inform the course on all the pairings and take advantage of an early start, semi shot gun or otherwise as we can arrange with the starter.

To join us for the fun of one of Jakarta’s finest courses on Sunday just sign up here as usual. Green fees of Rp800,000 including cart. As we are running a joint event there is no need to sign up to both Societies so please sign up here if you have not already signed up via D.O.G.S. & vice versa.

For those in the match, you may find the handicap on your match scorecard is a little different from the that on your daily play scorecard, this is not an administrative error but only a reflection that the match pairings were done on last week-end’s handicaps and the weekly cards reflect the latest handicap indices….
