Captain’s

Note

Congratulations Winners!

The club’s most prestigious event for 2011 produced a number of new Club Champions, and congratulations to all the winners!   In fact to everyone who played in the Club Championship, thank you for making it successful. The Club Championship for all categories was about gross scores. Prizes for the winners were in the ratio of 1:9; i.e. one out of nine players were a winner and the prize value was not smaller than last year’s. Additional gifts were also given out, and the Hole-in-One prizes on offer were also greater than previous years. The sponsors and donors need to be thanked for their generous contributions without which, the spirited competitions would not have been possible. Please read our inside story on the Club Championship for additional details. This year’s tournament expenses was slightly higher since the culminating luncheon cost more than past years as food quality was upgraded and everyone went home with a loaded goody bag worth about RM200. I am happy to point out that the green speed for the KGNS’ Putra golf course was fantastic and the best it has been in over two years. Preparation for the Club Championship started early and with the assistance of Mother Nature, the course played beautifully with speeds reaching 9.9 feet on the Stimpmeter. Therefore, with this high standard set by the tournament, I would love to see the green speed remain for the rest of the year, so Course and Ground crews please stay on your toes and continue to maintain both courses in excellent condition.

Care of Our Golf Course Golfing members are urged to do their part in maintaining our course in super condition by filling divots, smoothing out the greens and raking sand bunkers. Please contribute, as your efforts would not only make it pleasurable playing for yourself, but for other club members as well. Buggy users, who do not hire caddies, please carry your sand pails into the fairways. If this is too much work and a problem for you, then please employ a caddy to do this needed task. The introduction of cans for cigarette butts, unfortunately, seems to be largely ignored, as many smokers still throw their butts anywhere they please on the course. We are appealing to the smokers to be more civic conscious and keep their cigarette butts with them until they reach a bin. The same goes for tissues, food wrappers, etc., etc., and etc. I am sure those who litter on the course do not do it in their own gardens at home, so why do it on our golf course? For that reason, with regard to the smoking issue, it should be pointed out that some clubs have banned smoking. So if the situation does not improve, the Management may be forced to consider implementing that type of banning rule, which as smokers, you surely will consider it to be an unpleasant rule. To avoid this, all we need is some form of cooperation and discipline from you when you are on the course.

Branding & Income I am sure most of our members have noticed the branding on the Hole Indicators at the Putra Course. The change has not only added colour to the course, but it has also put money to our coffer. For a year’s display, the club receives RM108,000. Thanks to Bermaz we have another RM100,000 for our golf competitions and junior programmes. The Waz Lian Group was not far behind with RM40,000 just for the Club Championships. To all our supporters, my special thanks to them, again. On another note, by selling our Putra Course for private competition once a month, we expect the golf department to also show a revenue increase.

General Election As you read this message, it is important to know that the General Election is just around the corner. After these elections you could be continuing to read my column or you may be reading one by a newly elected Captain. Whatever the outcome, however, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you in the club for allowing me to serve this tenure as your Captain. I enjoyed the work and I always strived to do my best for the club. My proudest setting up at the club was the introduction of the Big Spender incentive. The rest is history. While I may be sounding a bit like an old record, I must again stress that clubbing is a culture of mixing and tolerance with no self interest in mind. The club is a place for the releasing of tension from work, from home, and from the stressful outside world. It is a place for all to be on equal terms and to do whatever you like in accordance with the rules of the club. There should be neither personal agendas nor preferences. I can very safely state with total conviction that KGNS is the best club among all the clubs that I am a member of. Let us all strive to maintain it as the best for every member. Be happy and be thankful for what this club brings you. To quote a cliché: “Ask not what the club can do for you, but what you can do for the club.”

Thank you all and happy clubbing! Dr.Ronnie Yeo Club Captain Berita Subang 5

Updates

Extension of Golf Bag Storage The Golf Bag Storage Operator is unable to accept anymore golf bags for storage due to space constraint. A survey was conducted to gauge the extent of the demand in order for the Club to determine the size of the proposed extension of the storage space for golf bags. With an approved budget of RM60,000 work has commenced and is scheduled to be completed by 25 June 2011.

Upgrading of Poolside Terrace In an effort to provide better atmosphere and service to members, the Poolside Terrace has been renovated and given a new look. With the new colour schemes, it now looks brighter around the counter area. The back of the Poolside has also been extended into a larger kitchen area with the concrete roof slabs as the upper floor for the expansion of the Administration office. The new kitchen has provided the staff a larger place, healthier and better-organized environment to work on with, in the preparation of food and drinks. Other improvements include the extension of the seating area overlooking the golf course, plaster ceiling, totally new electrical wiring and lightings, new sanitary plumbing system and ventilation system.

Expansion of Administration Office

With the growing activities and the increased number of staff in the last few years, this has led to increased demand for a larger office and storage space. The Management has taken a number of measures in resolving the problem of insufficient office space. Realizing the urgency of additional office and storage space required, upon the approval by the Management Committee, the present Administration office has been expanded on the roof slab above the newly renovated Poolside Terrace with a total area of 1,266 sq.ft.. The completion of this project will provide the staff with a more conducive and better working environment. Departments such as the F&B, Purchasing, Social & Recreation, House & Maintenance which were originally located all over the clubhouse can now be located to the new extension.

An Appeal to all KGNS Members

WE NEED YOUR CO-OPERATION TO CREATE OUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR BOOK Old Pictures, Old Journals, Old Newsletters, Old Newspaper Cuttings, Old Golf Items & Anything Old of KGNS – In fact anything old that is part of KGNS. Kelab Golf Negara Subang will be 50 years old in 2017. The Management Committee has decided to undertake to produce a Yearbook of the club to commemorate the coming of age of the club by gathering as much history as possible to compile a yearbook to celebrate the coming event in 2017. Through all the years of existence, there seems to be little record of what happened from the birth of the club until the present day. Records, pictures and all publication on the club had not been kept by the management over all these years. The yearbook for our 50th years will be the first to keep alive the history of the club since formation. Sometime in the future, our children and grandchildren will remember, ‘how, why and when’ of KGNS when they read our 50th Anniversary Yearbook. Visitors and guests to our club will be able to learn more of the club’s history and personalities of the past and present. They will view with pleasure all the old copies of pictures of our first Prime Minister, all our stalwarts of the club and all the past Champions in golf. It will be a book of who’s who in KGNS for the 50 years of our existence. In order to achieve this ambition, the Management Committee requires the assistance of all the members, especially the older ones, to provide us with as much materials as they can gather. All newspaper cuttings, old photographs, old magazines, old Berita Subangs and anything to do with KGNS will be most welcomed. We will make copies of all that you send us and return the original. We will commission a capable person to compile and write up with all the materials collected to mould it into a book of our achievements over 50 years. This is your club and you must feel proud to belong to KGNS. We have a history so let us not forget the past or let our memories slip away from us. Let us join forces and make this yearbook a reality. Come forth and contribute in any way you can. Relate to us the stories of the past, the incidences you happen to remember before they fade off. Nothing stays more permanent that words printed on paper. Please contact any of the Committee Members if you have contributions. Or approach the Club’s Administration Staff. You will be treated as a VIP for your contributions. Let us join forces and make this project a reality. Dr Ronnie Yeo (Club Captain)

Safety Netting Hole #3 Kelana Course As safety measure for the public, a new safety netting is necessary on the right side of Hole #3 Kelana Course starting from the red tee box to the fairway bunker. The length is approximately 210m with a proposed height of 20m. The approved budget of RM200,000 during the last EGM 2010 for improvement of Kelana Course will be used for this project. The scope of work shall include the planning and commissioning of the proposed design and construction of the 20m safety netting. Engineering consultants will be required to advise us regarding the safety on the construction of the pole and to avoid the pole collapsing for safety reason.

New Bunker Sand

The original river sand

The existing bunker sand used are the river sand for both courses. After certain period of time, the sand inside the bunker becomes thinner; sometimes, the underneath soil appears if new sand are not put in. This happened a lot at the Kelana Course. In conjunction with the construction bunkers, our Course & Grounds crew will, in stages, change the sand to the white mining sand, i.e. at Hole #9 and Hole #18 of the Putra Course. These works will be continuing at all bunkers for both the courses.

The new white mining sand

Cigarette Butt For the past years, the issue of smoking on the course and cigarette butts are causing headache to the Committee. Quite a number of cigarette buds are found on the fairways and greens surrounding especially on the sprinkler heads which made our courses looked dirty. To tackle these problems, the Captain, Dr. Ronnie suggested providing ‘pot ashtrays’ with hanger for smokers which they can carry with them during play. These ashtrays can be found at 1st tee and 10th tee for both courses. There will be no excuse from golfers in future as to where they throw their cigarette buds during play.

The pot that serves as ashtray for smokers

Green Speed What is the meaning of green speed? or “the green speed is slow”? And how do you measure the green speed? Here is the story - in 1936, a man named Edward S Stimpson invented a simple tool made of aluminium called ‘Stimpmeter’ which was named after his name. The pictures show the Stimpmeter(in circle) and other tools used for measuring the green speed ‘A’ point

‘A’ point

Roll the ball from 1st point (marked with tee) to ‘A’point

‘A’ point

Roll again from ‘A’ point to the 1st point (marked with tee)

Three balls will be rolled on the stimpmeter down to the surface of the green when we lift the one end of the Stimpmeter by 20˚. The average length of these balls will be marked on the green as ‘A’ point. (Refer to the picture)

1st point The length between 1st point to ‘A’ point will be measured and known as the green speed for the individual green

The length from 1st point to the ‘A’ point will then be measured as the green speed for that individual green. Six greens will be measured and the average of all six green speed will be known as the green speed of the day.

Rules of Golf Decision 33-7/4.5 The R&A and the USGA have revised the above Decision effective immediately to solve some of the situations where a player is unaware he has breached a Rule because of facts that he did not know of the breach and could not reasonably have discovered prior to returning his scorecard. Under the revised decision, however, it does not mean you can be ignorance of the Rules. The R&A and the USGA confirm that the disqualification penalty still applies for scorecard breaches that arise from ignorance of the Rules of Golf. 33-7/4.5 Competitor Unaware of Penalty Returns Wrong Score; Whether Waiving or Modifying Disqualification Penalty Justified  Question: A competitor returns his scorecard. It later transpires that the score for one hole is lower than actually taken due to his failure to include a penalty stroke(s) which he did not know he had incurred. The error is discovered before the competition has closed. Would the Committee be justified, under Rule 33-7, in waiving or modifying the penalty of disqualification prescribed in Rule 6-6d? Answer: Generally, the disqualification prescribed by Rule 6-6d must not be waived or modified. However, if the Committee is satisfied that the competitor could not reasonably have known or discovered the facts resulting in his breach of the Rules, it would be justified under Rule 33-7 in waiving the disqualification penalty prescribed by Rule 6-6d. The penalty stroke(s) associated with the breach would, however, be applied to the hole where the breach occurred. For example, in the following scenarios, the Committee would be justified in waiving the disqualification penalty. A player makes a short chip from the greenside rough. At the time, he and his fellow-competitors have no reason to suspect that the player has double-hit his ball in breach of Rule 14-4. After the competitor has signed and returned his scorecard, a close-up, super-slow-motion video replay reveals that the competitor struck his ball twice during the course of the stroke. In these circumstances, it would be appropriate for

Pond Edge 3

the Committee to waive the disqualification penalty and apply the one-stroke penalty under Rule 14-4 to the player’s score at the hole in question. After a competitor signed and returned his scorecard, it becomes known, through the use of a high-definition video replay, that the player unknowingly touched a few grains of sand with his club at the top of his backswing on a wall of the bunker. The touching of the sand was so light that, at the time, it was reasonable for the player to have been unaware that he had breached Rule 13-4. It would be appropriate for the Committee to waive the disqualification penalty and apply the two-stroke penalty to the player’s score at the hole in question. A competitor moves his ball on the putting green with his finger in the act of removing his ball-marker. The competitor sees the ball move slightly forward, but is certain that it has returned to the original spot, and he plays the ball as it lies. After the competitor signs and returns his scorecard, video footage is brought to the attention of the Committee that reveals that the ball did not precisely return to its original spot. When questioned by the Committee, the competitor cites the fact that the position of the logo on the ball appeared to be in exactly the same position as it was when he replaced the ball and this was the reason for him believing that the ball returned to the original spot. As it was reasonable in these circumstances for the player to have no doubt that the ball had returned to the original spot, and because the player could not himself have reasonably

The existing pond edge slab at Hole #13 Kelana Course was installed several years ago as a sample for Course & Grounds Sub-Committee’s approval. That hard looking concrete slab was the reason why this job was not approved at that time. After several years, the erosion got worse and recently, the SubCommittee decided to continue this works in order to avoid further damage to the edge of the pond. The quotation and specification provided by the contractor showed that the affected areas are approximately 180m long and the installation of the slab are still the same. Based on the same specification, the Committee will be calling for tender by advertising in major newspapers soon. The overall project cost is estimated to be around RM150,000.

discovered otherwise prior to signing and returning his scorecard, it would be appropriate for the Committee to waive the disqualification penalty. The two-stroke penalty under Rule 20-3a for playing from a wrong place would, however, be applied to the player’s score for the hole in question. A Committee would not be justified under Rule 33-7 in waiving or modifying the disqualification penalty prescribed in Rule 6-6d if the player’s failed to include the penalty stroke(s) as a result of either ignorance of the Rules or of facts that the player could have reasonably discovered prior to signing and returning his scorecard. For example, in the following scenarios, the Committee would not be justified in waiving or modifying the disqualification penalty. As a player’s ball is in motion, he moves several loose impediments in the area in which the ball will likely come to rest. Unaware that this action is a breach of Rule 23-1, the player fails to include the two-stroke penalty in his score for the hole. As the player was aware of the facts that resulted in his breaching the Rules, he should be disqualified under Rule 6-6d for failing to include the two-stroke penalty under Rule 23-1. A player's ball lies in a water hazard. In making his backswing for the stroke, the player is aware that his club touched a branch in the hazard. Not realizing at the time that the branch was detached, the player did not include the two-stroke penalty for a breach of Rule 13-4 in his score for the hole. As the player could have reasonably determined the status of the branch prior to signing and returning his scorecard, the player should be disqualified under Rule 6-6d for failing to include the two-stroke penalty under Rule 13-4.

KGNS Club Championship Sets Records When was the last time you heard of a golf tournament producing three hole-in-ones on the same hole? It has never happened on Pebble Beach’s famed tiny No. 7, or on Augusta National’s treacherous No. 12 that is a part of Amen Corner, or on the even more treacherous island No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass. But it did happen during the KGNS Club Championship 2011, as Dr. Loh Tack Seng, Sheikh Jamal Sheikh Mohamed, and Aidil Zuhairy each recorded a hole-in-one!

W

hile the trio’s accomplishment was record setting, it was a duo that produced a spectacular finish to the men’s division. After 54 holes of competitive golf on our beautiful Putra course under three days of great weather, two players tied at 14-over 230, which was four strokes better than the next closest players - the pair of Eric Foo Hwa Peng and Kevin Yeap Chih-Pin, who finished third and fourth, respectively on countback. Playing off a handicap of three, senior golfer Mohd Chudi Ghazali, who started the final day three shots behind the 36-hole leader and defending champion Sunil Abraham, with a spirited challenge caught the latter by posting a final round 79, as the rest of the field had faded in the heat of the day. The two men then produced perhaps the most exciting finish of our club championship history

in the form of a two-hole sudden death playoff. Sunil’s three shot cushion was greatly damaged by an early double-bogey on the 3rd hole due to having found the rough and greensite bunker and a missed putt. But the 32-year-old lawyer also showed tenacity by settling done and playing the next six holes to maintain a two shot lead. Unfortunately, after the turn, he bogeyed holes 14, 15, 16 and 18 after recording a double-bogey on No. 10. Chudi, meanwhile, after pars on the 3rd, 4th and 5th coolly birdie on the 6th hole. With the poor play of Sunil and the steady play of Chudi, the latter was one off the pace going to the17th tee and a par on the finishing hole was good enough to draw him level because of Sunil’s bogey. On the first playoff hole, the 391-metre par-4 No. 18, Chudi put his second shot to about

20 feet from the pin and the defending champion responded his third shot out from the bunker brilliantly, which landed six feet from the cup and both players made par. Loud cheers and claps greet the pairing as they made their way to the 9th tee. The 399-metre par-4 is one of the more straightforward of the holes at KGNS, but over the years it has often proved to be a card slayer for some unknown reason and for this playoff it was to be no different. Chudi’s second shot found the green’s apron and Sunil choose to attack the pin, but to his horror he pulled his approach to overshoot the green. Then, a weak chip came up short and he two putted for a bogey. Chudi put his third shot close to the pin – to the 2-foot mark -- and then tapped it into the hole for the 2011 KGNS Men’s Club Championship title. The 67year-old golfer carried the day and in the process became the oldest player to claim the crown. Chudi, was understandably elated at not only what he had achieved but what the moment represented in the history of

the KGNS championship in the playoff. “The course played long today. The playoff makes the competition exciting and the members were so supportive,” offered the now four-time club champ who also owns crowns from 2002, ’05 and ‘07. “I knew I had to play well as Sunil had a great start, so I just tried to play away. I feel great because I didn’t expect to win, but I am glad I won and hopefully I can keep going for more”, he added. Wahid Mirza, who produced the best final day score at 77, finished fifth. The nett title went to Jaswinder Singh (11) who posted a three-day total of 216 with Gareth Ng (11) trailing oneshot behind for second. Dr. Ronnie Yeo, KGNS’ captain and the tournament director, was quick to point out that the championship holds an important place in the club’s history. “Especially with the two extra holes playoff, it commands the attention of everyone and we look forward to another championship of the highest quality next year,” he said.

Veterans Produce a Tight Contest Results

T

he Senior Division was claimed by Hj Mahrome Bin Mohamad (5) with a 156 that put him a full five shots ahead of his competitors. An opening round 77 gave Mahrome the lead after the first round and a fine 79 kept a valiant threat from the pair of Dato’ Dahlan and Mohd Chudi Ghazali at arm’s length. After a countback, Dato’ Dahlan’s last ninth hole secured him the second place and push Chudi to third. Another close finish in this age group had Shariff Mohd Shah (17) and Dato’ Mohd Rosly (16) returning identical scores of 71 and 70 in the 36 holes Nett competition. After winning on countback, Shariff, revealed it was his maiden participation in the club championship. “The feeling of being a winner was just exhilarating! Especially after having stopped golfing for almost one year due to my painful leg, but I came back to practice for three months to warm up for the championship. I was lucky to be paired with some very friendly members who made me feel relaxed and they were also very encouraging,” said the 62-year-old, who was at first unaware of his triumph. “I went home right after the game. Then my friends rang me and said I won the Nett event. At first I thought they were doing a prank on me to get me excited so that they could laugh at me next day. But I came back to the club the following day and saw my name on the board. It was unbelievable.” The Super Senior Nett category victory went to Salleh Nulub (12,) as he finished two strokes better than Anwar Ismail (13). Salleh’s round was generally consistent with a few errant putts along the way.

“I consider myself lucky,” confessed the 17-year-old youngster in relieved. “I was feeling pretty sick and almost quit after the 13th hole, because the weather was unbearably hot. Later, I asked an official if I can withdraw, but he encouraged me to carry on.” Imran, who won the KGNS Junior Championship’s Nett event in 2009, then added: “The official said I have three more holes to play and I was not out of the picture yet, so I should played on. It was a case of a bad day that turned out good.” Gavin, who was leading by three shots after the 15th hole, failed to hold the top spot and finished at 170 on rounds of 85 and 85. After a countback, he was declared the second place finisher over Benjamin Tan. “After a disastrous double-bogey on the par-3 No. 15, I went par, par, and a birdie for the win. I’m proud of the way I came back. I didn’t play well, but the last three holes somehow put me in the lead,” said the new champion.

Accomplishments

Three Hole-In-Ones were struck at Hole No. 7. The lucky golfers were: 1) Dr. Loh Tack Seng achieved an ace on Day 1 of the Senior Golfers Championship (May 7) 2) Sheikh Jamal Sheikh Mohamed achieved an ace on Day 1 of the Men’s Club Championship (May 20) 3) Aidil Zuhairy Bin Azman achieved an ace on Day 1 of the Men’s Club Championship.

There was also an eagle being scored at the par 5, Hole No. 17, by Kevin Yeap Chih-Pin on Day 1 of the Men’s Club Championship.

Power Play - The Putra Course At the recently held Club Championships, members were treated to a great time on our fabulous golf course. The Putra, which is known for being in great condition throughout the year, was to say the least in magnificient condition for the competitions. During the final round of KGNS’ Men’s event, and under scorching heat, the 60 players who made the cut had to trade birdies for bogeys on the demanding layout . The length of the course was stretched to 6,500 metres (an addition of 250 metres) to give a balanced combination of strength and accuracy. And, the recent improvement of the course with the renovation of bunkers on holes 7, 9, and 18, added to the difficulty of play.

But the biggest factor the players had to be contented with, came in the form of fast greens. The green speed was a slippery 9.9 for all and it was something members had not seen in the last few years.

An Early

Two months short of his 68th birthday, this four-time KGNS Club champion battled not only gentlemen of his age but golfers 30 years his junior, to emerge a champion once more. By winning the KGNS 2011 Club Championship, which was contested for 54 holes over the club’s challenging Putra Course, Mohd Chudi Ghazali is believed to be the oldest golfer in the country who defies expectation. Chudi, who was born and bred in Klang, made golf a priority when as a banker in his mid-fifties, he was posted to Terengganu and working on his golf game in his spare time. He quickly brought his handicap down to plus-1 and in the process sweep nearly every title in tournaments he entered to amass more than 75 victories. Ironically, this senior is a champion of the majority of golf clubs he is a member of. In a brief interview with Berita Subang (BS), Chudi who is noted for his lethal short game, confessed golf is in his blood. And, while that maybe the case, we should also tell you he is an athletic and is good in any kind of game that he sets his eyes on, an example being ten-pin bowling in which he was a champion for many years.


Birthday Present

At my age, I got to think philosophically, I don’t have high ambitions, I don’t have to please anyone, I am happy that I can still play competitive golf and be able to mix well with everybody.

BS: Do you have any hidden talent? Chudi: I suppose it is the speed in counting money. In those days there were no counting machines so you had to count by hand and after sometime you could feel and detect counterfeits. You had to be accurate and fast otherwise you could not go home. BS: What kind of sport are you weak at? Chudi: It’s really funny – I wonder why high jump is so tough. I can’t fly. I am good at long jump and running, but I simply cannot jump.

BS: Congratulations on being the 2011 KGNS Club Champion; surely you enjoyed the playoff. Chudi: Thank you. I did enjoy it and I noticed this year had the biggest crowd surrounding the greens, especially the last hole. That, in my opinion, made Sunil Abraham (the defending champion) tense. He is a good golfer and he won twice in RSGC. I also noticed the older fellows supported me while the younger ones were cheering for Sunil. Unfortunately, the next day, I lost in the Match Play. I wasn’t serious in my game and not too sharp either because of my painful gout. Put it this way, I don’t have anything to lose. At my age what do I have to fear even if I lose? BS: Tell us a bit of yourself and what prompted you to play this game? Chudi: Actually, my name is supposed to be ‘Zuhdi’ but during the Japanese occupation, the officer spelled it ‘Chudi’ and I never bothered to change it. When I was young, I applied to join the Navy, but I was rejected because I was colour-blind. Still, I consider myself lucky to be able to work with a bank until I retired in 1996. While I was based in Terengganu, I adored tennis and looked at golf as an old man’s game in the hot sun. Then my boss said: “Many of our clients are golfers why must you play tennis and who can you play with?” That spurred me to take up the game at Royal Terengganu Golf Club. During the test round, the tester who is a lawyer, was impressed at the way I played and after three holes, he straight-

BS: Did you go for any golf lessons? Chudi: No. I practice on my own at an open space before joining the club in Terengganu. I only picked up tips from a book called “Golf My Way” by Jack Nicklaus. That was the only reference book I ever had. Jack was my golfing idol and still is today. BS: How many victories do you have thus far and what kind of prizes do you think are appropriate to receive? Chudi: I lost count of my wins. There are so many of them, but I usually collect between ten to 20 trophies a year. I must have over 200 of them, but my wife does not like to see too many lying around the house so, only the nice crystals are in the cabinet, while the rest go to the storeroom. I think cash or shopping vouchers is a better way to reward the golfers because we are able to buy items that we want. When I got home with the championship trophy my daughter said: “Aiyah, no value, where’s the voucher?” BS: What are your memorable golf achievements and where? Chudi: One of them was winning a tournament equivalent to the KGNS Club Championship in Terengganu, because that was a grand event in a small town. Later, I joined the Royal Kedah Golf Club and won the Club Championship breaking the course record in the rain. It wasn’t easy to play on a flooded course. It prompted HRH Sultan of Kedah to say: “How come this guy is able to break the course record in the rain?” The record was around the 70s and it stood for a long

away gave me a handicap of 18. Twelve months later, I became a single handicap player. At my age, I got to think philosophically, I don’t have high ambitions, I don’t have to pleased anyone, I am happy that I can still play competitive golf and be able to mix well with everybody.

time. To me this was one of my most memorable highlights. When I was posted to Seremban in the early 80s, I won the first SIGC Club Championship followed by numerous tournaments until it became a routine. I joined RSGC in 2000 and won the club championship. Because I was able to win at my age I also considered it an achievement. I won more events after I became a senior, which includes the Asian Senior Golfer, maybe because I have more time to play golf. I have three hole-in-ones, several eagles and one near-miss albatross on KGNS’ Hole 6 during the Malaysian Amateur Open. The ball came to rest touching the flag but didn’t fall in. BS: How does it feel to be known as a most feared club competitor? Chudi: I feel honoured. Often, people see me play with the younger players and seldom with people my age. That’s because I am a competitive golfer, so when I am able to beat the youngsters, it creates an atmosphere where the older players feel uncomfortable when they are paired with me and the younger people create unnecessary pressure in attempting to beat me. At my age, I am neither stressed nor am I bothered if I play good or bad. I don’t have to proof anything. At RSGC, guys are telling me to stay away from smaller medals so that they have a chance. I have great physical fitness and I am able to maintain that. For me to remain competitive whenever I play there must be some sort of betting to play better. BS: What’s your game plan? Chudi: My drive is short at 260-270 metres, but I’m quite accurate. My strongest department is the long and middle irons. It is where I am able to beat most of them. I usually try to hit my second shot to the green and by doing so, my opponents are intimidated and so the pressure is on them. I cannot afford to miss the green but my weakness is putting. BS: What are the things that irritate you about golf? Chudi: Inconsiderate golfers and those with poor etiquette are the ones that irritate me most. Why is it so difficult to allow the fast players to pass through? Then three are people who complaint on ‘dangerous play’ when it was just a running ball that’s not dangerous. If they have apologised, accept it and don’t go on to lodge a report to prolong the issue. This is all about good clubbing.

Travel

Exploring Angkor Wat and Golf

By Dr Ronnie Yeo

The ancient Kampuchean city of Siem Reap is where millions of tourists, from all over, flock to be a part of the past and bathe in the glamour of Indian Kings and Princes who ruled over the Kingdom hundreds of years ago. Known to the world as Angkor Wat, it is one of the world’s most visited historical sites.

Since their discovery, millions have walked the routes taken by the Hindu immigrants who built the marvelously erected temples and palaces of solid rock adorned with gorgeous statues of Buddha and carvings of dancing damsels. In addition to the gigantic moats surrounding the palaces, there is a huge manmade pool suitable for swimming and boating competitions. Hidden within thick tropical rain forest and camouflaged by dense vegetation, the ruins of Angkor have been linked to the similar temples of Bagan in Myanmar and most recently to those of Borobudur in Indonesia. Historians related the three sites as a line of migration of an advanced Indian civilization that spread Hinduism and Buddhism along the route. They left their mark in Bagan and then moved to Siem Reap in Kampuchea before spreading down the Peninsula of Malaya to finally reach Borobudur in Java. Malaysians can see similar relics in the Bujang Valley in our country on a smaller scale. Lovers of historical sites will not be disappointed with Siem Reap, because the ruins are so expansive that you simply cannot cover the entire region in a week. A tour of the ruins cost US$20 for a day pass, and a two-day pass is priced at U$30. The guides that come with the tours are very knowledgeable and they speak good English. The guides are also usually quick to point out that the ruins served as a backdrop for one of Hollywood’s popular Indiana Jones films. At sunset, the ruins are best viewed from the top of a hill in Angkor. Imagine the sight of multiple temple towers bathed in red, as the setting sun fades and darkness approaches. The sight is definitely a picture that even a thousand words cannot do justice.

24 Berita Subang

One can walk up and down the hill for free, which of course, is great exercise, but for the less adventurous, a small fee will get them an elephant ride. In fact, it is a different world when you step into the ruins at Angkor. The temples and palaces are truly magnificent and grand, and it is easy to imagine how it was, when they were alive with harems complete with indoor saunas and spas. If you are asking why I am focusing on Angkor Wat, in this edition of our Berita Subang, it is because Siem Reap is not only rich in history, rather, it is also associated with a hidden jewel for golfers. Few know that this remote area of Kampuchea with its lone tourist attraction being the ruins of Angkor, offer unforgettable golf. When one talks of golf in Kampuchea, you quickly think of Phnom Penh, as it is only logical that the game can only survive in the capital city where the rich and famous live. But no, it is not quite so. I have played in Phnom Penh before. The 18-hole golf course did not stir up any spunk in me. It was poorly maintained and weak in designed with little to no character. And to this day, it is still the only 18-hole golf course in the capital city. But, on my second trip to Siem

Reap last year (my first was in 1990); I was surprised to encountered three golf courses! Since I was on an official work trip under the International Olympic Council (IOC), I managed to play on two of the three layouts. At Angkor Resort, which was about 25 minutes from the city centre of Siem Reap, I enjoyed a round of 18-hole that cost me US$100 in a package that included transportation from my hotel, green fee, caddy and a new buggy (I may have got it at a reduced rate since I was an official representing the IOC). The golf course was clean and well designed. I was attended by the ever smiling, pretty, and well-trained caddies who were very polite. The layout is spread across flat land, but their strategically planted trees of numerous varieties often come into play for the average golfer. In addition, bunkers and lakes are everywhere at tactical locations and their fairways were like carpets. The greens were also in fine shape and because they were speedy, the subtle slopes they presented made them tricky for the unwary. The clubhouse, which contains a pro-shop, is rather small but modern and clean, with comfortable changing rooms and shower. The halfway drink hut was shared between the two nines and appeared modern too, with service handled by appealing Kampuchean ladies. Despite it being a hot afternoon, my round of golf was a nice break from my lecture schedule with my only complaint being the scorching sun. So golfers, take note – if you go, pack your sun block, sunshades, and carry an umbrella. Now that my golfing endorphin is stirred up, I was more than ready for the second course, which is the Lake Resort. It is a Korean-owned facility located about 40 minutes from the city. My limousine took me to this huge clubhouse that was absolutely empty of golfers, but manned by polite local damsels. It cost me US$120 for the limousine ride, green fee, buggy and caddie.


For me, this course was better than the first as it lived up to its name of Lake Resort. It features immaculate fairways and the greens were inundated with many stretches of water. I thoroughly enjoyed myself here and even my score was more than respectable since I played alone, which allows for many things to happen to one’s score! Three months after that trip I managed to rope in seven friends; and I returned to Siem Reap for a golf getaway. We played Angkor Resort, Lake Resort and the third course that I missed on my earlier trip – the Phokeethra Country Club. The latter is set a bit further from the city than Lake Resort, but it is well worth the extra time to reach it, as this is the course that hosted the Kampuchean Open tournament the year before. Again, I was amazed that a country like Kampuchea has courses that put most of our Malaysian courses to shame in terms of design, maintenance and playability. And, what else does Siem Reap offer in addition to ruins and golf? For the beer drinkers, Pub Street serves beer at US$0.50 per jug on occasion, but most

of the time it is at US$0.50 per tall glass. The variety of food along Pub Street is another marvelous part of Siem Reap. They cater to foreigners at local prices offering International cuisines, such as, French, American, Italian, Chinese, Indian, Thai, and Vietnamese. The eateries compete with each other for the foreigners that crowd the street from day to night, so an evening out here can be very reasonable. However, if cost is not a consideration for you, or you have a little extra money from a golf bet you collected earlier in the day, elegant dining is a grand option. One local favorite dish I found to my liking was barbecued whole frog, something I found deliciously satisfying. Karaoke lovers and the massage addicts will enjoy themselves in Siem Reap. From foot massage to full body massage, from singing to drinking, and plenty more, they are all available at a price, which I assure you, is well below what you pay in any other parts of Asia. A three-night and four-day trip is ideal to this destination. There is no need to stay in a high-end hotel, as the three-star hotels are able to provide you with just as much comfort and at a lower price.

Transportation around the city is by means of “tut-tut” that can sit up to four people and the price is always US$1.00 for any trip – but do remember to bargain before you climb into the tut-tut. Bargaining is half the fun when shopping in Siem Reap. You can get anything and everything -- from antiques, relics, stones, gems, replicas and duplicates with all deals depending on your bargaining power. A visit to the market place will also reveal to you how racially and religiously tolerant they are, as Muslim men and women sell beef and vegetable right next to Kampuchean pork sellers. All in all, the golfing trip only put me back RM2,500, which includes food and some shopping. I bet you won’t regret making a similar golf trip. Better still, if you go, bring your partner along to tour the ruins while you enjoy the fine golf courses!
