Sunday 16th December 2018 Cengkareng Monthly Medal

The Day

Our final monthly medal of 2018, and the last one before the current shield is retired, saw a strong turnout of 42 Tee Setters heading to Cengkareng for another excellent afternoon of golf and to enjoy the great service and hospitality that the course offers.

Although a dry, bright sunny day, the tail effects of the tropical cyclone hitting northern Australia saw us tackle the course in a very strong wind which saw some holes become quite a different experience than we have had in our previous visits. Adaptable as Tee Setters are, many relished the challenge of the conditions and in the end the results were remarkably similar to other months at Cengkareng.

4 newcomers this week with Sang Young Park, Chris Chipman, Graham Parsonage and Andrew Macking all being given a warm Tee Set welcome. Only one notable welcome back with Gary Hing joining us after 6 months. We hope to see you all again soon.

Thank you to Craig Edwards for handling the early registrations and pairings and to Ric & Lis Wymer for managing the scoring and results after the round. Details of the results are below and the photos of the day here.

The Play

 

A 25% hit rate saw a bumper photo of 10 skirt winners with Chris Chipman, Craig Ewers, Detlef Bluemke, Eric Mary, Ian Butcher, Matt McGowan, Mick Dodsworth, Rod Ritson, Stefan Thiele and Tim Henssen all in the frame. Several were to return as winners later in the prize presentation although Rod and Chris were to remain for a second booby prize photo after securing Most Strokes (13) and Monster Putter (46), respectively.

First to recover their fine was Mick Dodsworth who was joined by VP Ric Wymer and Cucu Chandra in sharing Most Improved with 8. Tim Henssen also recovered his fine with First Sandy on hole 11 whilst Ronald Lim took First Birdie for his effort on hole 3. Completing the weekly skill prizes was Fernando Gaggino for his Low Putts return of 28 strokes.

Monthly skills prizes saw both Eric Mary (Long Drive Men) and Stefan Thiele (NTP) also back in the black whilst Rosie Putri took home Long Drive Ladies.

Our Low Net winners were Richie Tiblani (A Grade net 67), Ronald Dimaculangan (B Grade net 73 after a count-back from Rosie) and Riahana Ariestya (C Grade net 69).

Continuing his good form, President Roger Finnie was our Low Net on the day after his 78 gross whilst our Monthly Medalist after a fine net 66 and a return of 42 points was Matt McGowan.

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

Xmas Charity Drive: Lombok and Palu 

Thank you to all those who have generously emptied their wardrobes of old clothes so far. We are still collecting donations this week so if you have anything to donate please bring along to Riverside this week or contact Santi Miller or Roger Finnie to coordinate collection/deliveries.

Santi and Jane will be going through all the donations and creating shipments to be donated to families in both Lombok and Palu for the New Year. Thank you in advance for all your donations to support these worthy efforts.

Next up: Riverside Sunday 23rd December 2018 11.30am

Our penultimate round in 2018 sees us head down to Riverside and claim the rain check from our last visit when we got severely washed off the course.

RiversideThis Greg Norman designed course 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 have invited our friends from the DOGS & POCKSIA to join us and we will be having a fun game together playing in 2-person team pairs. We will conduct a blind draw for teams with the lower handicap half of the field drawing a partner from the higher handicap half of the field. The drawing will be conducted at 11.00 am so we can get the pairings to the starter. Late arrivals will be paired as they come.

Scoring on each hole for the team will be based on the better ball net score off individual handicaps, 3 lowest team scores will win the prizes on offer. All players (Tee Setter, DOGS or POCKSIA) with a current Tee Set handicap will play that handicap on the day and the remaining players will play off their DOGS/POCKSIA handicap.

Come join us for the fun and challenge of one of Jakarta’s finest courses on Sunday by signing up here as usual. Green fees of Rp525,000 including a shared cart with a tee time of 11.30pm

For those Tee Setters who are already travelling or who are busy the next couple of weeks, on behalf of the Committee we wish you and your families a joyous festive season and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you out on the fairways in 2019.

Next Up: Cengkareng Sunday 16th December 2018 at 12pm. Monthly Medal and Eclectic IX

As usual our December monthly medal is a little earlier in the month due to the holiday season so this Sunday we head back to one of Jakarta’s finest courses and one of Tee Set’s most popular venues, Cengkareng, home for Tee Set’s 2018’s Monthly Medal.

It’s the last opportunity to get your name on the current shield which will be full after this month’s event; but fear not, Kojo and Geoff Thwaites have already confirmed their continued sponsorship of the Monthly Medal Shield and a new one will be purchased to engrave with the winners from next month onwards. Thanks Geoff!

Thanks to the sponsorship of Ken Runyon and his teams at Accel Golf and Golf & Special Events Management we will recognizing the Low Gross and Low A, B & C winners with a trophy in addition to presentation of the Monthly Medal to the overall winner.

This week will also be the second  round of Cycle IX of the Tee Set Eclectic and an opportunity for you to down a first marker in the hope to wrestle the trophy from current holder, Amol Singhal.

Whilst there is a lot to attract players for this week, we also welcome those who just wish to enjoy a pleasant trip across the rolling fairways, guided round by Cengkareng’s well trained caddies and then to sit and enjoy one of its famous Margaritas to cool you down afterwards.

If you are able to join us for a very reasonable Rp800,000 walking please sign up here. Tee time is 12pm as usual.

Reminder: For those who would prefer not to walk, in addition to the hover boards to glide across the rolling fairways, Cengkareng management have recently purchased 8 golf carts. These are priced at Rp55ok a cart so if you wish to reserve one please contact the Golf reservations staff at Cengakreng directly. As the carts are limited in number and we do not have visibility to those already booked on the day, your Tee Set Committee is not involved to the reservation of the carts.

Xmas Charity Drive: Lombok and Palu 

Whilst the initial news has passed and many valuable contributions have been made to support the main relief efforts, news from families of Tee Setters with direct connections to these 2 locations report that there are many people who have lost all of their belongings and are therefore short of some basic necessities including clothing.

Therefore, under the initiative of Santi Miller, we would like to ask you to go through your wardrobes and find any serviceable old clothes and bedding which you would be happy to donate. Be conscious of what would be practical given the environment – no high heels for example – but otherwise all donations are welcome. We are asking for both adult and children’s clothing plus bedding but not food, toys etc…

Donations can be brought the Tee Set events to be held over the first 3 weeks of December (BSD, Cengkareng & Riverside) and passed to Santi or Roger Finnie. If you wish to donate but cannot make these events then please contact Roger, Santi or Keith Miller and we will give you an address where they can be sent to be added to those collected on each of the next 3 Sundays.

Santi and Jane will be going through all the donations and creating shipments to be donated to families in both Lombok and Palu for the New Year. Thank you in advance for all your donations to support these worthy efforts.

For your diaries….

A few of our regular Tee Setters will begin to head out from this week-end so our best wishes for the holiday season to those we will miss over the next 3 weeks or so.

For those staying in Jakarta, we will have our 2 player better ball stableford event at Riverside on 23rd December – a bargain at Rp525k as we claim our rain-check from earlier in the year and on 30th December we will return to Pangkalan Jati for our final round of 2018 with, I am sure, a few refreshments on hand to toast the end of year.

On 6th January 2019 we will be at Gading Raya followed by a social evening at the DOCKS as a welcome back and to celebrate Match-Play Champion Jens Roestel’s birthday. Jens will be sponsoring a couple of barrels of beer that evening so we can enjoy a fun evening to kick off the New Year.

Sunday 9th December 2018 BSD

The Day

A busy week-end for several of us who were at the Pricilla Hall event on Friday and the St Andrew’s versus St George’s event on Saturday came to close as we enjoyed the week-end’s golfing dessert with a visit to BSD. An excellent course duly attracted another good turnout of 35 Tee Setters and despite being forewarned of a morning competition we got an early start on an almost empty course thus allowing us to speed round with the first groups in before 4pm. Capping off our good fortune was the weather remaining dry although there were a few claps of thunder to remind us that it can be fickle at this time of year and that we should not dawdle!.

2 newcomers were welcomed on Sunday and a warm Tee Set welcome to Indar Dhaliwal and Chris Puype. One notable welcome back to Robert Sweigart after 118 weeks. We hope you will all join us again soon.

All in all, a great visit to BSD which we capped off with a return to De La Mexicana where we continued our evening until well after 8.30pm. A thank you to Jens who helped with the registrations, the Hertzke family for hosting us again in the evening and to Ric & Shawn who manfully managed the scoring entries whilst the rest of us were enjoying a few refreshments and the excellent food. Pictures of the day can be found here.

The Play

 

BSD was in excellent condition with the greens relatively faster than we have played on recently and this was reflected in the scores returned on the day. An excellent 80 off the stick saw Mark Fiorello take Low Gross on a count-back from President Roger Finnie who won Low Net A with the best net of the day 70. Low Net B was won by Eric Mary (72) and Low Net C by Riahana Ariestya (71). Low Putts was awarded to Nick Gleeson for his excellent return of 27 putts on some tricky pins.

First Birdie (hole 5) went to Matthew Powell whilst First Sandy (3) went to Shawn Berg. Most Improved was Simon Oxley with 9 whilst Lina Bunter was in the winners circle again with First Par for handicaps >=30 also secured on hole 3.

The tricky nature of BSD was reflected in our booby prizes with Monster Putter being awarded to Aurelie Neufkens after her 45 strokes on the rolling greens. a surprisingly low 3 skirts, Detlef Bluemke, Hakim Moui and Michael Mueller, was more than offset with an 8-way tie for Most Strokes of 10: Detlef being joined by Aurelie, newcomer Indar Dhaliwal, Jens Roestel, Jochen Overberg, Kim Pham, Matt McGowan and Rudie Basson.

Detailed results are here and congratulations to all our winners.

Sunday 2nd December 2018 Gading Raya

The Day

With the 2017-18 Tee Set golfing year brought to a close last week, this week saw us open the new year with a visit to Gading Raya. Although usually a quiet week in the Tee Set calendar, the popularity of the course and its proximity to many Tee Setters’ homes ensured we had a healthy turnout of 33 players despite there being a few weary bodies amongst us as both the DOGS end of year party and the JIPL finals were held the day before.

All in all it was an excellent Sunday of relaxed golf with the weather being dry, the course playing well despite the recent heavy rains and the Gading Raya staff ensuring we got off on time & round with little hold up. This meant the first groups were finished in just over 4 hours and we could all change and complete the prize-giving by just after 5pm, leaving plenty of time to enjoy some food and refreshments together and still be home early.

Being the first event of our 2018-19 golfing year, newly re-elected President Roger Finnie was given the “honour” of hitting the first tee shot and he was relieved to see it go down the middle given the watching gallery of Tee Setters and with VP Ric Wymer being on hand with his camera just in case….

We welcomed our first newcomer of the year, Matthew Scheitlin and the only notable welcome back was Matt McGowan after 12 weeks.

A thank you to Ric and Lis for managing the scoring and prize giving on the day and photos can be found here as usual.

 

The Play

Although not a complicated lay-out, the tricky greens and some long carries to the red tees ensured we also recorded our first fines of the year too. Detlef Bluemke was our  inaugural fine of the year with a skirt on his first hole and he was joined by Hakim Moui and Mike Webb in enjoying a choice from the Tee Set dress up collection. Most strokes went to Matt Otto for his 13 on a hole whilst Monster Putter was Gary Mond after his 43 putts.

Most improved was a 3 way tie with Detlef recovering his fine and being joined by Joe Callahan and Matthias Coessens in improving by 6 strokes on the back 9. 1st par for handicaps =>30 went to Lina Bunter and Stefan Thiele for their efforts on hole 3 and First Sandy to Laurie O’Connor for his effort on hole 2.

Master of the greens was Eric Mary who navigated them with only 28 putts whilst First Birdie, also on hole 3, went to Doug McQuater.

Although not turning his good drive on hole 1 into a simple par, Roger Finnie kept out of trouble and returned a 79 for Low Gross whilst our Low Net honours went to Fernando Gaggino  in A Grade (68), Arthur Mallari in B Grade (68) and Kim Pham in C Grade (65).

Detailed results are here and congratulations to all our winners.

Next up: Gading Raya Sunday 2nd December 2018

Gading Raya has been one of Tee Set’s favourites and deservedly so with an excellent course and good faciliites being complemented by relatively easy access for many Tee Setters.

After a gap of 15 months, we had a successful return to Gading Raya recently with 50 players joining us and so with Modern having a competition this Sunday, we have taken the opportunity to have another round here.

Tee times off 1 & 10 at 11.30am have been confirmed along with the more attractive pricing of Rp800,000 (was Rp950k in 2017) with carts.

Lots of good reasons therefore to sign up here and we look forward to seeing you all next week.

2018 Tee Set Championships Sunday 25th November 2018 Matoa Nasional

The Day

Tee Set’s year traditionally finishes on the last week-end of November and we returned to Matoa Nasional last Sunday to celebrate the end of the golfing year, to crown our Champions for 2018 and to recognize all of the contributions which go into running a successful society.

A full house of 112 registrations, 107 players making it to the first tee – up from 87 last year, more countries represented, more women players and more sponsors supporting us all show that Tee Set is in good health despite the changes in the economy which has seen many departures in recent years.

A lot goes in to holding the Championships with the day being the culmination of around 6 months of effort and so we’d like to offer a special thanks to a number of people. Firstly, to our sponsors:  Asian Tigers, Asia Serv, Hot-Hed, JS Luwansa Hotel, Kojo, Loesche, San Miguel, Schenck Process, Bintang Sub-sea, Samson Tiara, Mayapada Hospitals and Fugro who contributions ensure Tee Set has the wherewithal to hold its Championships and put on a day worthy of our end of season event.

The Tee Set Championship Committee put in many hours of work preparing for the day and a special thank you to VP Ric Wymer, Web-guy Keith Miller, VP Bill Lloyd, The Singing President Craig Ewers, Coach Ken Runyon and the ever smiling Richard Mau for their tireless contributions. A lot of this work comes together just before the day, and a special mention to Lis Wymer, Ledy and Mike Riley and Matoa’s Weny and Putri who all came down on Saturday to help Ric with the set-up.

Matoa have been a great partner to us over the years and whilst there were some challenges on the course condition in recent weeks, partly exasperated by the heavy rain, Reza and his team made a special effort to present the course in the best condition possible. All the Matoa staff were invested to ensure the day went smoothly and our appreciation was acknowledged to all of the team there.

Lastly, a thank you to all the Tee Setters who came along and supported the day and ensured we celebrated in some style until dark.

Being the event it is, the Championships brings together a diverse cross-section of the Tee Set universe. VP Ric Wymer and President Roger Finnie both played over 4o of our 53 events this year whilst newcomers last week, Matthias Coessens and Aurelie Neufkens were back to experience the Championship as their 2nd event. Norman and Lina Bunter timed their visit from the UK to join us and former President Peter Reichlmeier was a notable welcome back along with several other players including Helmy de Korver, Rod Ritson and Jakob Sorensen.

Our sponsors were out in force and were there to also help welcome newcomers Per Sorensen, Marcel van Til and Joe Cortez who all chose a great week to come for the first time – this happens once a year guys just FYI!

Details and the awards for our annual play are below as are the results of the day.

The day itself, saw the course open at 5am and first there were President Roger Finnie, straight from the St Andrew’s Ball held on Saturday night and a more rested James Ross. Upon registration, Mayapada Hospitals were offering a free mini-medical check up which was popular although the results did give some food for thought. Having found lockers, cart partners and starting holes, everybody gathered for breakfast and refreshments. After the photo, we headed down to find our carts and stock up on further refreshments for the course and our shot-gun start.

Despite some thunderstorms threatening mid-round and which gave a good reason to get out the new Tee Set umbrella from the goodie bag, we stayed dry and so the only hiccup in play was the accommodation of too many additional groups even after a full shot-gun. This caused some delay as people turned from 18 to 1 but with the Hot-Hed van offering hot dogs, the club-house drinks supply ably managed by the Star Deli team and VP Bill Lloyd, hopping on his broken foot and therefore unable to play, roaming the course with mobile refreshments, all were able to stay well fed and watered during the day.

After changing, we gathered in the function room where after lunch, President Roger Finnie open proceedings by welcoming everybody and shared some high-lights of the Tee Set year.

Our thank you’s and acknowledgements above were followed by former President Peter Reichlmeier saying a few words in memory of long-time Tee Setters Clyde Wickiser and Ivan Byriel who both passed away this year and raising a toast to absent friends. Peter then raised a toast to Tee Set following which the cake was cut and distributed as dessert to all assembled.

With the Tee Set Presidency running Championship to Championship, Keith Miller had distributed a request for nominations but with none received and incumbent President Roger Finnie happy to continue, the existing committee was re-elected serve again for 2018/19 year.

With scoring done, a door prize lucky draw was made for gifts donated by Asian Tigers, Mayapada Hospitals and Walter Jardine before we proceeded to the prize giving.

Following the prize giving, we gave a present to Secretary Brenda Mayland in appreciation of all her hard work and contributions to Tee Set and said a fond farewell to the departing David Baglivo who leaves Jakarta shortly to return to the USA.

With the formalities completed, the presentations were closed and we partied the rest of the afternoon away to the sounds of the Singing President and his band.

The Play

Prize giving on the day recognized both the play during the year as well as the results of Sunday’s round for the Tee Set Championship. Tee Set returned mixed results in its matches against other societies: the Battle Royale Cup again went to the home side as Par 5 won at Handara whilst Tee Set prevailed at the 3rd time of asking in the Juergen Degert Cup versus DOGs at Rancamaya; in the Inter-League Tee Set were wooden spoonists but contributed significantly to the revival of JIL in 2018.

In our internal competitions, the inaugural weekend trip to Surabaya for the Finna Cup was a great success with Fernando Gaggino winning the 2 day eclectic event whilst the Tee Set World Cup was again won the Ladies from Indonesia. We recognized our Monthly Medalists and Eclectic winners from the year and captured those present for prosperity.

Tee Set also recognizes the best play from all rounds played over the course of the year. President Roger Finnie took home both the Low Average Putts and Low Average Net trophies whilst Jeff Landau won the Low Average Gross trophy. Jeff was presented his trophy along side last year’s winner Simon Reynolds since he was not present in 2017 to collect it.

Our skill prize winners on the day saw Tim Knight and Efsi Hayati take home the long drive honours and receive a bottle of wine each. Whilst nobody claimed the hole in one prizes sponsored by Matoa and Mayapada Hosptials, JS Luwansa sponsored 2 nearest the pins which were won by Leon Bivolaru and Matthias Coessens.

No fines this week so a week off for the Tee Set dress up bag but we did still recognize our usual skill prizes. First Birdie went to Lina Bunter, 1st Sandy to Nuri Puzey, First Par for handicaps >=30 to Renny Sperry and joining the ladies was Brad Burness for Low Putts.

Low Net prizes went to Jari Ratu in A Grade, Matt Otto on a count-back in B Grade and Dede Nielen-Groen in C Grade.

Lastly, we recognized our major champions for 2018. The Match-Play Championship and Ric Wymer Trophy winner was Jens Roestel who defeated 2017 Tee Set Champion Santi Miller in the final. The George Bevege Trophy winner for Low Gross on the day went to Ken Runyon for his gross 75 whilst just edging him out for the overall Champion was Richard Mau who shot an excellent net 64.

Congratulations to all our winners. The day’s summary result is here and the many, many photos of the day can be seen here.
