HIGH LIGHTS: (the Thomas Report)
Jakarta Interleague Report
Great day for Tee Set as we scored a lopsided win over Cloggies. The 8-2 tally pushed us into a tie for second in the JIL standings. Well done!
Simon 1 up Shawn 4&3 Geoff/Sam 3&1 Dave/Jeff 3&1 Jude/Arnold down 3&2
Highlights – a mix of Tee Set and JIL
A wonderful day for golf after weeks of late afternoon rain interference.
Steven Vette came through with possibly the highlight of the year by acing #14. HIO’s are very rare – hats off to Steve!
Simon Reynolds and Hitoshi carded 3 birdies each in the heat of JIL competition. When these guys get hot it’s like watching the pros!
Sami Kekonen – the human highlight reel – crushed a drive deep into the jungle only to have bounce out. He calmly stuck his iron to 6 feet and sank the the birdie putt.
On the lowlight ledger: many matches were bogged down by slow play ahead. We need to start earlier or get the course officials to move things along or put a timer on every slow putter or all three. 5-1/2 hours is unfair, frustrating and ultimately unacceptable. Nobody likes finishing in the dark.
HOLE IN ONE on hole 14 CONGRATULATIONS !!!

NEXT WEEK :
MONTHLY MEDAL at Cengkareng game 2045
Thank you all for the great support this week and we look forward to seeing you all next Sunday.
The reason for low scores is that the game was suspended and only the first 12 holes were counted.
Jakarta Inter League and Tee Set regular at Riverside Tee Off 12:00 noon. We need everyone to turn up for this event because Tee Set is on a ROLL. This could be our time in the sun.
Good morning JIL team! June JIL on tap this Sunday against the Cloggies at Riverside. They’ll have their finger in the dyke so a Tee Set tsunami might just float them. Please advise if you are available. Mkasih. Tom
WORLD CUP 2022: game # 2044
Good news is that we have 14 flights representing their countries. I note that Australia hasn’t submitted its team YET.
Registering for this event must be by contacting Ms Adhe with Name of Team, Name of Captain, names of other team members. This is our first attempt at registering a team event on Mygolf2u but that will not stop us from having a fun day. Please bring your flag and other distinguishing paraphernalia
THE THOMAS REPORT;
‘Slope’ – a golf course measure of difficulty. ‘Slope’ – a tricky change in elevation on fast greens. ‘Sloppy’ – a scorecard affected by rainy holes and OB markers. Yes, Jagorawi took a bite out of Tee Setters on Sunday. A gorgeous day turned to heavy rain resulting in truncated rounds for everyone. C’est la vie! (Note: Pre-start highlights included a French pronunciation lesson for Rosie.) Early spotlight was on Hitoshi’s birdie on #1 and Dean’s one-hop birdie on #2. Mid-round saw Roger build a Match Play lead over Michael big enough to win with six to play. Craig and Hitoshi will need a replay as the rain cut short their match. Après le déluge the Tee Setters inadvertently split into two groups that eventually joined up for prizes and announcements. Hitoshi’s smooooth whisky and lots of red wine and beer kept the postgame discussions from getting too analytical.
Never missed a weekend since 1983
I look forward to seeing you all next Sunday at Riverside.
Ezra 44 points, Cucu 42 points & Douglas 44 points.
NEXT WEEK : Jagowari game 2043 Regular White Tee Box
Just as the skies cleared for D-Day on Jun 6 way back when, the sun came out and stayed with us on June 5 while many areas got plenty of rain. After elementary arithmetic was applied to the buggy issue, off we went on a course ripe for scoring – fairways in tip-top shape and consistent greens. Stableford points were in abundance as Gading Raya gave in to several great rounds. Ezra (Who needs a driver?) Alexander shot the best score of his life! Dougy McQuater tied Ezra’s gross by matching the best score of his life! These guys didn’t get much exercize. Cucu’s net 66 (including two birdies) and 42 points couldn’t equal the Best Evers. Richard Mau, still The Man at Gading Raya, had low gross.
Thanks must go to Tom, Cucu and Adhe for holding the fort while our President and Vice President were unable to participate. 🙏🏻

NEXT WEEK: GAME # 2041 2 GADING RAYA
Cenkareng giveth and Cengkareng taketh away. On the plus side a beautiful golfing day with the course in super shape despite the recent downpours. On the minus side the overbooked morning and/or general snail’s pace of play left many Tee Setters frustrated with some finishing in the dark. However, there was a variety of sparkling shots worth noting: Bobby Cangkrama birdied the first two holes the second of which when he sailed a chip into the jungle only to see it hit the pin and drop straight in. Sami ‘Bryson’ Kekonen used his trusty driver/wedge combo to reach a par5 but missed the eagle putt. Sally Deane, eyeing the setting sun, decided to hurry things up by stroking in a 16m putt. Center cut! Mark Johnson pulled out some of his short-game magic with a sandy par using his putter from the bunker. Bobby C. wasn’t finished .. on 18 he played a four (4!) skip water shot and converted the birdie. The legend grows.
MATCH PLAY 2022:
Match Play recap:
Juju over JP 3&2
Michael Seabrook over Diana 4&3
George/Viboon tied. TBA
Simon/Michael tied. TBA
Once again, thank you all for joining us and maintaining our unbroken “never missed a weekend since 1983′
Please join us again next Sunday at Gading Raya. It would be much appreciated if you would register before Wednesday and last chance to elect a group will be Thursday afternoon.
One more thing that I want you to do is appoint one of your flight to be the scorer and enter the score after each hole. This will make the Leader Board more exciting and also take some of the load of Ms Adhe. ( Thank you Adhe for your great work)
Tee Set 7-3 over DOGS. Axel over Shawn 4&3 Adrian over Dougy 5&4 Mike/Jeff over John/Sarah 2&1 JP/Patrick 3&1 Arnold/Nick A/S
Super day for golf at Riverside. High overcast, no rain. A bit slow for reasons unknown but all’s well that ends well. Some outstanding performances and spectacular shot-making. Sami pulled a John Daly: drive/wedge/eagle. Axel (75) was awesome for the opposition and Adrian (77) almost as good. Both had best-evers and won their JIL matches. The Axel/Shawn/Adrian/Dougy fourball recorded 8 birdies. Patrick and JP hit their opponents with the old right/left combination and triumphed 3&1. The US of A (Mike and Jeff) bolstered the American presence in SE Asia with a 2&1 win. Nick and Arnold kept the DOGS at bay and finished all-square. Tee Set came out ahead against DOGS by a 7-3 count. A big thank you to those who threw their hats in the ring and helped notch an impressive ‘W’.

WORLD CUP 2022
At this early stage everything looks like another great event. I don’t see an Australian 🇦🇺team registered. There must be a couple of Ozies out there that can be competitive. If you haven’t done so please enter your team now.
NEXT WEEK: game 2041 Monthly Medal @ Cengkareng.
Thank you all for your great effort to bring Tee Set back to life.
Also a big thank you the George and the committee and of course Ms Adhe for their devotion to the administration of our events. 🙏🏻
Kayla Graham 2 up over Tom Grace. Cucu Chandra and Velma Yolanda tied. To be replayed. Michael Seabrook and Diana Budiarti rained out. To be replayed.
With a huge development in progress all around it Kedaton continues to see improvements in grooming, greens, and fairway conditions. Tee Set arrived with a great 50+ contingent, broad nationality support, terrific turnout by the ladies, and several MP’s on tap. The skies opened up after 6 to 8 holes for most players but we sat it out and continued post deluge on the surprisingly playable course. The second downpour ended the round for some groups but others soldiered on and finished in the gloaming. MP results had Velma and Cucu all-square through 18; Michael and Diana rained out; Kayla 2-up over Tom including a short-putt birdie on Index 1 hole to end the round in style.
Afters @ TELAGA
After the rain soaked round Tee Setters joined the Wolfpack for a superb seafood dinner at Telaga Resto just minutes from Kedaton. Live band, great food variety, lively repartee – a super follow-up to golf. But wait, there’s more! Most of the crowd caravanned over to Rav’s lair and partied on. With Jeremy tending bar, Roger holding forth on topics of the day and the ladies wearing out the indoor putting mat, winding down lasted into the wee hours.

Gadding Raya regular game # 2038, 8 May at 12:00
Another great Tee Set event at Cengkareng! The course was in perfect condition, the weather hot and muggy, and the golfers in good spirits. Thanks to all for joining and your participation. What often makes a great day better is the company you keep, remembering the good, and forgetting the bad and the ugly!
Cucu led prize giving proceedings in commemoration of Kartini Day (21 April – woman’s emancipation day) and demonstrated her successful business executive skills.
Solid performances by the winners all round.
Special note about a very rare shot: Nick Goodwin drove the green on #3 PAR 4 😇 💪

The ever popular weekend away at Rancamaya for our annual match versus D.O.G.S. took on a new flavour this year with JAWS joining in the fun to create a long weekend of golf and to support the collective fund raising efforts for our chosen charity, The Fiona Unity Foundation. Around 65 different players participated at some point in the weekend with 130 rounds being played over the 3 days and 50 players and partners joining for a lively BBQ event on Saturday night.
JAWS’s regular Friday event kicked off the week-end and although the weather was less than kind, a steady drizzle falling through out the afternoon, we were all able to warm up again at the charity whisky tasting event in the evening. Details of the day are already posted in JAWS and can be found here: https://jawsgolfsociety.com/2022/04/25/jaws-rancamaya-22-04-22/
Saturday was the second part of our charity activities with 24 teams entered for the 2-player scramble event. Some great scores were returned and more importantly, an excellent evening BBQ and prize-giving rolled deep into the night. Congratulations to all our winners:
Low Gross: Simon Reynolds/Booby Cangkrama with a Gross 66 pipping Willi Noronha/Srinivas Murthy who returned a Gross 69
Low Net: A two way tie on 61.45 saw first place shared between David Baglivo/Dan Swinburne and Gaurav Shirke/Chris Lever – with all the prizes being the same we didn’t bother with a countback – and in 3rd place were Alex MacGregor/Mark Johnson on 62.2.
The real winner was the charity with Rp24.7j being raised between Friday and Saturday and this will be presented to Fiona at her upcoming golf event on behalf of JAWS, D.O.G.S. and Tee Set players. A big thank you to all our sponsors and organisers, including the representatives from the committees of the 3 societies, KOJO, Anker Beer, Meadow and Bone and our prize and raffle sponsors Cengkareng, Rancamaya, Jakarta Golf Club, John Brown, Roger Finnie, Willi Goldschmidt, Holger Molendyk and Jeremy Oberoi.
A few sore heads arrived Sunday morning to be greeted by the cheery faces of those joining just for Sunday as we gathered for the annual Tee Set versus D.O.G.S. match in honour of Juergen Degert, the instigator of the event. With 22 players on each side being evenly matched, there were many titanic games played with D.O.G.S. just edging out Tee Set 5 to 3 with 3 games halved…. just as well as D.O.G.S. forgot to bring the trophy!! The Sunday regular game was combined with the DOGS final round eclectic and the report on the day can be found on their website: https://www.djakartaoldgolfsociety.com/blog
World Cup of Tee Set
Due to some scheduling clashes, namely the travel plans of the key organisers, the event is being rescheduled from its published date of 5th June to 3rd July – still at Riverside. Last year we had 91 players across 23 teams and we hope to surpass this number for 2022’s event. Event leaders Cucu Chandra and President Geoff Thwaites are looking for captains to lead their countries into golfing battle – teams of 4 with best 3 scores per hole counting to the team score. Please answer the call if they tap you on the shoulder or better still, contact either of them and let them know your team… thank you Indar for being the first in for 2022 with Team Malaysia….
Sunday 1st May 2022: Monthly Medal at Cengkareng

As always a fun day out and our usual prizes are on offer… please sign up on mygolf2u as usual so we can advise the course on numbers and flights.With most of us being on holiday, I’m sure there will be a few margarita’s to be consumed afterwards as the sun descends on another week-end.
