Next Up: Emeralda Sunday 7th June 2020

See the source image

As already announced we have rescheduled our event this week to the excellent Emeralda, a course which has proven popular with Tee Setters over the last couple of years. With its 27 holes designed by Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer you can walk the footsteps of legends whilst enjoying one of the more picturesque courses we will play all year. We are confirmed to play the River/Lake lay-out.

Thanks to Divya Ahuja for his excellent support on the booking and rate negotiation on our behalf. The price is Rp700k including cart and with an 11.00am tee time, we will be able to enjoy fully the day and not be too late returning home. To come and join in all the fun of a Tee Set Sunday please sign up here.

Tee Set Match Play Championships

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.

Forthcoming Tee Set Events

We are still busy sorting out the schedule both in terms of course availability – starting with next Sunday as above – and in terms of balancing all the more formal events into the calendar. Some dates which we are earmarking over the next couple of months are as follows:

  • Match vs DOGS June 14th @ Riverside: The next JIL round has been rescheduled to July 12th and we have therefore arranged the DOGS vs Tee Set match, itself previously planned for 10th May, to this date since by good fortune they are playing Riverside for the current tournament schedule. Captain Simon Reynolds is looking to recruit a team of 16-20 players to represent Tee Set in the match and the day is a normal day so all Tee Setters are welcome to join. We will follow the golf with a BBQ & Beers (own account);
  • JIL July 12th @ Riverside: Usual Tee Set Sunday event and next round of JIL (postponed from above date);
  • World Cup of Tee Set August 2nd @ Riverside: Tentative date for this event, moved from 12th July. Event Supremos Craig Edwards and Jens Roestel will be tapping up the captains to help arrange the teams for this popular event so please put your hand up to submit a team and participate in this fun event. Last year 20 teams battled it out for the trophy with the United Nations edging everyone out;
  • Birthday Anniversary Scramble 9th August @ Matoa: As the current schedule and details to follow shortly.

Sunday 31st May 2020 Cengkareng

The Day

Our first formal game back in over 2 months and an excellent turnout at the ever popular Cengkareng. With social distancing arrangements in place, we minimized the pre- and post-match gathering with the prize-giving announcements/prizes mostly postponed for another week: meaning that our winners on the day are sitting with a small credit in the Tee Set coffers. It didn’t prevent a large snafu in the awards however… more of which below.

The Cengkareng team were excellent as usual despite the players being suitably spread out, never more so in the professionalism with which they took care of Craig Edwards when he accidentally stood on a cobra near the 13th hole. A quick trip to the hospital and an anti-venom treatment saw him back to reassure us all of his good fortune before we departed in the evening. Many thanks to the GM Kurt and all his team.

Out on the course, the fairways and greens were in excellent shape, the rough a little gnarly and with the weather fair through-out, there were some excellent scores returned. With a slightly earlier start, we were also able to get round in good time despite the higher than booked turn-out.

A pleasure to welcome 3 newcomers Tim Fehling, Rosalia Tjokro and Jay Croakley. Everybody was officially a welcome back after 2 months of Tee Set hibernation!

The Play

As mentioned we did a very curtailed prize-giving so all the winners from the regular prizes will be receiving their prizes at a future event…. As will our actual Monthly Medal winner Mikko Koskiverta who had made an error in adding up his scorecard which we only picked up on when entering scores today, meaning he and not Hana Ariestya took home the shield. Thank you to Hana for her understanding on the matter and we will arrange the photo with the shield next week Mikko.

Less difficult were the Monthly Medal skill prizes with Juju Juhaeriah and Simon Reynolds winning the Long Drives and Emiliano Marcelo stiffing his shot to 2 feet to win NTP on the day.

Thanks for everyone’s understanding on the day as we managed our come-back and to Jens Roestel and VP Ric Wymer for their assistance with the administration on the day.

Tee Set Match Play Championships

Sunday saw the resumption of play in the competition with Santi Miller and Timo Karonen playing out a thrilling draw. Both decided to replay their match so they will recommence battle next Sunday.

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.

Next Up: Emeralda Sunday 7th June 2020

Our plan was to return to Gading Raya this week but with the course unable to confirm the timing of re-opening, we have rescheduled and instead booked the excellent Emeralda, a course which has proven popular with Tee Setters over the last couple of years. With its 27 holes designed by Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer you can walk the footsteps of legends whilst enjoying one of the more picturesque courses we will play all year.

Next Up: Sunday 31st May 2020 Cengkareng

We will kick-off events with the May Monthly Medal but Round III of the Eclectic Cycle XII will be held in June once everything is expected to be more back to whatever normal will look like going forward.

Your Committee is still doing some work on the rest of the year’s schedule and slotting in the key events which we wish to hold: JIL, World Cup, Birthday Scramble, Championships, Match with DOGS etc… but to fit in the Tee Set Match-Play we have already determined that the current first knock-out round needs to recommence from this week. There are 6 or 7 match-ups still to be decided and the deadline is extended to 28th June for these to be completed. We will send out the schedule for the remainder of the competition along with the other Tee Set events once it is settled but can those with outstanding match-ups please try and complete them as soon as possible.

If you wish to reserve one please contact the Golf reservations staff at Cengkareng 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

Tee Set Committee Message to All Members

We trust all of you and your families have managed to stay safe and well during the last couple of months. Whilst some continue to remain largely within the safety of their homes and a few are overseas awaiting the lifting of travel restrictions to return to Jakarta, there is also a desire for a partial return to golfing normality amongst many of the Group. After canvassing some of the active players and taking into account the current situation, our plan presently is to return to official events with the Monthly Medal at Cengkareng on Sunday 31st May. Pre- & Post-match social distancing arrangements and on course protocols will follow the arrangements set out with the Club Management.

This is assuming the current social distancing restrictions do not get updated and/or extended after they are due to expire on 22nd May 2020. Please look out for further news on this early next week. If we are able to recommence as planned, we will work out the schedule for Tee Set events through the rest of the year, including the revised Match Play schedule, and advise everyone in due course.

In the meantime, there is a casual game booked at Riverside for this Saturday, Sunday being the beginning of Idul Fitri based on present information. Should Idul Fitri be announced later in the week as commencing on Saturday then the game will be moved to Sunday (as the course will be closed Saturday) and we will update you. Please sign up as usual here and we will advise the course of those planning to play.

 

Congratulations to VP Bill Lloyd for his Hole-In-One last Sunday at Bogor Raya. Bill is seen here picking the ball out the hole on 11th green with a truly local track-man of the shot being laid out on the green thanks to Richard Mau’s recently purchased hand of bananas. Bill was able to celebrate his 2nd ever hole-in-one with everyone who joined him at the restaurant afterwards.

 

For everyone celebrating, we wish you Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri for next Sunday… or Saturday should it change….

Tee Set Committee Message

As per our communication last week, Tee Set has postponed all official events and competitions until improvements in the current situation are seen. This includes the current round of the Match Play, the Eclectic, the Monthly Medal and our participation in the Jakarta Inter-League in addition to our regular weekly competitions. As such there will be no further weekly posts or updates sent out to members until such time as we are ready to restart our regular games; at that time we will publish a new schedule for these events as needed.

For clarity, this will also include our planned week-ends on 1-3 May at Gunung Geulis (course is closed) and on 9-10 May at Rancamaya. 

A few players are still wishing to get out in the current environment and as we have bookings for the next few weeks already made, we will update the “Yes I’m Playing” page with the details of the arrangements so individual players can make their own decisions whether to play or not. We will inform the course of players wishing to fulfill the booking but the games will not be convened by the Committee. There will be no further reminder posts or other communication through the blog regarding this. If there are any questions for the Committee regarding any matter pertaining to Tee Set please contact us directly or via the Tee Set email: tee.set.jakarta@gmail.com.

Anybody who has scores to report can continue to send them into our Secretary as normal: Teesetcards@gmail.com.

Stay safe everyone and we are looking forward to seeing you all on the other side soon.

Message from the Committee: reminder

There has been much member communication recently regarding the COVID-19 virus and what impact that will have on Tee Set and golf arrangements generally. Whilst Tee Set has a proud history of never having missed a week-end’s golf in 37 years, the Committee takes the stance that it would rather lament the passing of this tradition than go down with ship…. We are therefore taking the situation week by week and will continue to arrange games providing the situation does not worsen dramatically and/or there is not a city wide shut down mandated by the government which therefore closes access to courses for all. Some points related to this:

  • There is sufficient information available publicly for each member and guest to be adequately informed on the risks associated with the virus and steps which can be taken to protect oneself. We expect each member to therefore form their own judgement as to whether it is appropriate, and they feel comfortable enough, to join each week;
  • We are talking to the management of the golf courses booked for the coming few weeks to ensure they have in place policies to check the status of their guests, staff and caddies as well to maintain an appropriate level of hygiene and cleanliness in both public and back of house areas. We may adjust our schedule if we are uncomfortable with the feedback we get so please rely on the blogs rather than the published schedule for the latest updates;
  • Key personal guidelines include maintain a safe personal distance from others and being thorough in regularly washing hands etc.. We expect individuals will follow these steps for themselves and ask you are also conscious to respect the boundaries for others you come into contact with – notably on the course, on carts and in the Club House before and after games;
  • We expect that any pronouncements on changes in government policy/rules will come at very short notice. It may be therefore affecting our schedule even if we have previously confirmed the game: please keep looking at the news to check since we may not be able to update the situation immediately to all members.

We will also continue to liaise with some of the other Societies here in Jakarta to be as coordinated as possible.

Regarding this Sunday at Cengkareng, the course remains open with procedures in place to check staff, caddies and guests as well as regular sanitation of public and back of house areas. The Committee have also received several requests from members wishing to still play noting the above comments already. We have therefore decided to continue with our booking but suspend the main competitions we would have otherwise run on the day so as to enable players who wish to depart early to do so and to keep appropriate social distancing after the round for those still wishing to partake in a refreshment.

If you wish to join, please sign up here. First tee time is midday as usual and the green fee will be  Rp.875,000.

Reminder: For those who would prefer not to walk, in addition to the hover boards to glide across the rolling fairways, Cengkareng has available a limited number of golf carts. If you wish to reserve one please contact the Golf reservations staff at Cengkareng 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

Sunday 22nd March 2020 Gading Raya

The Day

Undeterred by the heavy rains which were falling across Jakarta overnight and into the morning, 22 Tee Setters gathered, at a safe distance to each other, on Sunday morning at Gading Raya with their usual optimism. Although the rain continued right up until tee time, these keen players were to be rewarded with a cessation of the rain on the first tee box – rumored to be as a result of one of our number buying a new umbrella just before play started. We were to therefore enjoy a bright sunny game and with the course being quiet, we were also finished in very quick time, the first groups home in under 4 hours.

With the ground still drying out, we played lift, clean, place and despite the conditions making the course play longer than normal, many good scores were returned.

2 newcomers on the day and a warm welcome to Ian Pemberton and Philippe Jamin. Welcome backs to Aaron Davis after 97 weeks, Ken Runyon after 33 weeks and Karan Khetan after 11 weeks; all of whom featured in the prize-giving afterwards.

Thank you to VP Ric Wymer for managing the scoring and announcements with the able assistance of Mike Webb and to Divya Ahuja for assisting with the registrations in the morning. Pictures of the day can be found here.

The Play

In his own indomitable style, Timo Karonen secured a trifecta of awards balancing his now usual First Par for Handicaps >=30 with our sole skirt for the day and a share of Most Strokes with Aaron Davis. Aaron also joining Timo as a prize winner for his Most Improved return.

Divya Ahuja took First Sandy, Richard Mau Low Putts and Philippe Jamin First Birdie.

Low Gross on the day went to Jeff Landau and our Low Net winners were Ken Runyon, Karan Khetan and Alastair Livingston (on a count-back from Jari Antikainen).

Detailed results are here: Gading 202003222 Results

Tee Set Match-Play

Sunday saw the rematch of last week’s tied game with Divya Ahuja edging out Ric Wymer 3&2 to progress. For those who have completed their games, please do not forget to report your results to James Ross by email and for those yet to play the first round games, please note the deadline for this round is 12th April. Check out the Match Play page for more information as needed.

Christopher Till R.I.P.: 9 May 1957 – 17 March 2020

As reported, we were sad to learn of the passing of Chris Till last week. Chris was a proud Scouser who left home to make his fortune, firstly in southern England and then, from the early 1990’s, Indonesia where he remained through thick and thin until he passed away. A keen musician, his band supported Queen when they visited Liverpool in the early 1970’s and he carried his passion for music through-out his travels; here in Jakarta he often sometimes be found doing impromptu jam sessions in Blok M or where-ever he may be out for the evening.

A quick, dry sense of humour, a generous heart and that scouser’s gift of the gab carried him through his ups and downs, in business and in life, and he was always ready to share a story over a beverage or 3. A part of his local legacy will be as the Founder of the Cilindak Rotary Club which has since raised a considerable amount of funds for local worthy causes.

Pictured here from one of his last Tee Set outings with his favourite wooden headed putter, Chris played with us from 2012 until his health curtailed his ability to enjoy being out on the course. Our commiserations to Maya, his family and friends and a thank you to Tim Supple for his contributions to this obituary.

Next Up: Cengkareng Monthly Medal and Eclectic XII. Sunday 29th March 2020 12pm tee off

On Sunday we head back to one of Jakarta’s finest courses and certainly one of Tee Set’s most popular venues, Cengkareng, home for Tee Set’s Monthly Medal for 2020.

In addition to being the third Monthly Medal of 2020, this week will also be the 3rd round of Cycle XII of the Tee Set Eclectic. 

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 the course’s deservedly famous Margaritas to cool you down afterwards.

If you are able to join us please sign up here. First tee time is midday as usual and the green fee will be  Rp.875,000.

Reminder: For those who would prefer not to walk, in addition to the hover boards to glide across the rolling fairways, Cengkareng has available a limited number of golf carts. If you wish to reserve one please contact the Golf reservations staff at Cengkareng 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

Ramadan Golf Week-ends May 2020

The quieter traffic on the Jagorawi Toll during this period makes it an excellent time to head a little bit further into the Bogor area for our golf events.

Please do send your confirmations to Bill and Mark as soon as possible since the hotel rooms book up early.

Committee Message & Next Up…..

Message from the Committee

2 unrelated topics but both equally somber. Firstly, we were informed of the passing of Chris Till on 17th march 2020, a long term Jakarta resident and Tee Set member since 2012. An obituary on Chris will follow shortly and our commiserations to Maya and the rest of Chris’s family and friends.

Sunday 15th March 2020 Emeralda

The Day

Kudos and good fortune to Mel Cantarella who managed to just escape the travel lock down in Manila and arrive in good time on Sunday at CGK to make Tee Set’s return visit to Emeralda this week. Mel was joined by 29 other Tee Setters who were to enjoy relatively good weather until the last couple of holes for the final groups.

As usual we were well looked after by the Emeralda team who are keen to have us back although having had 3 consecutive week-ends at the same junction, we’ll take a rain check until later in the year. Overall the course was in good shape but with the rains still persisting and repair work ongoing in the putting surfaces, it was no surprise to find the greens still a little variable in speed, leading to some impressive returns in the competition for Monster Putter.

5 newcomers this week and a warm Tee Set welcome to Anthony Robertson, Heru, Henk Pouels, Kamhaeng Sihachan and Mark Pinnells – most of whom featured further in the prize giving. A warm welcome back too for Rob Cheng (83 weeks), Francois Panchaud (64) and John Dotch (35). We look forward to seeing all again soon.

Thank you to our VP’s Ric and Bill as well as Lis and Beby for managing the day and photos can be found here.

The Play

“Tee it High & Let it Fly” was the intent but a slightly shallow swing saw his ball soar off the top of the driver and his tee fly not much further, in any case neither a far as the red tees, leaving VP Bill Lloyd with that most precious of all our awards, a skirt. Bill was joined by a couple of his playing partners, newcomers Mark Pinnells and Anthony Robertson as well as the returning Francois Panchaud and Mel CantarellaMark completed the Tee Set trifecta with Monster Putter and Most Strokes, the latter for which he was joined by Anthony, Tapio Jarvenenpaa and another of our newcomers, Henk Pouels.

Most Improved went to Divya Ahuja whilst Jens Roestel took home First Birdie and Kamhaeng Sihachan Low Putts.

Our Low Gross went to Richard Berg whilst Low Net honours were taken by Marcelo De Jesus, John Dotch and Timo Karonen.

Congratulations to all our winners and the detailed results are here: Emeralda Results 15-03-20

Tee Set Match-Play

2 games played this week but only 1 result as Ric Wymer and Divya Ahuja finished all square just as the heavens opened leaving their game to be resolved. Arnold Castillon however pipped Lis Wymer 1 up to progress.

For those who have completed their games, please do not forget to report your results to James Ross by email and for those yet to play the first round games, please note the deadline for this round is 12th April. Check out the Match Play page for more information as needed.

Your Committee has therefore decided on a change of venue and a warm thank you to the Gading Raya team for accommodating again us at short notice.

Tee times off 1 & 10 at 11.32 a.m. 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.

Classifieds

With an increasing number of golf related posts, we have split the Classified’s page into 2 separate pages to better share golf and non-golf related information. Please check out the website to see the various events and offers which are being shared to Tee Set members.

Ramadan Golf Week-ends May 2020

The quieter traffic on the Jagorawi Toll during this period makes it an excellent time to head a little bit further into the Bogor area for our golf events. Your committee has therefore decided to arrange 2 long week-end opportunities in early May and both options are now shown on the Tee Set website main menu.

Please do send your confirmations to Bill and Mark as soon as possible since the hotel rooms book up early.

Details of the Gunung Geulis week-end 1st-3rd May are posted here. Please contact Bill Lloyd bill.lloyd@asiantigers-indonesia.com directly to confirm your interest and details of which package you wish to book.

Details of the Rancamaya week-end 8th-10th May are posted here. Please contact Mark Johnson markstevenjohnson56@gmail.com directly to confirm your interest and details of which package you wish to book.

Thank you to Bill and Mark for their efforts in putting these 2 packages together along with John & Sarah Brown for their negotiation and arrangements with Rancamaya.

As always, for those just wishing to join either or both events for Sunday only, we welcome you to come and join the fun. Bookings for Sunday only will be via the normal sign-up which will open in the week before each event.
