My tenure as the Captain of the Club ended on 28th of June 2009 and I am glad to report that the Club’s financial position showed a positive balance mainly because of the membership transfer arrangements.

On 28th June 2009, the Club held its 37th Annual General Meeting to elect the President, Vice-President, Captain and four Management Committee Members for the 2009/2010 term. I am glad to report that the following were elected:PRESIDENT YBhg.

On behalf of the outgoing President and Management Committee Members for 2008/2009, I take this opportunity to thank members for their support during its term of office. The incoming Management Committee will also face a challenging year ahead and we hope to perform well with, as always, your fullest and unselfish cooperation.

KGNS New Family In what stands as the largest membership intake ever for the club, 80 new members were inducted into the KGNS family at the Introduction Night 3 on Monday, 22 June 2009 at 7.30 p.m. Of this number, 54 were admitted via the transferability of membership mechanism, while 26 came from the ranks of applicants-in-waiting and upgraded junior members.

Syahirah Intan bte Dr. Mohd Shafie (S 786)

Dr. Roslan bin Mahamud (R 311), ENT Surgeon

Subang is an old traditional club, which I have been waiting to join for the last 16 years! The food is good and reasonably priced, plus I have friends here!

I hope to contribute to the good work and dedication of my late father (former Club Captain, Dr. Mohd Shafie), whose membership is transferred to me and with whom I share the same passion for golf. As he did, I too believe that golf is a gentleman’s game. For me, KGNS has always been a fraternity club with ample occasion for social interaction.

I’ve been a member of Royal Pahang GC since 1990, got transferred to Kuala Lumpur 5 years ago. KGNS members are friendly compared to any other club that I have been to; convenient, food is good and reasonably priced and facilities for the family are good!

Prior to this, a similar ceremony, Introduction Night 2, was held a month ago, 12th May to be exact, but with a lesser number of new entrants (42) being formally introduced. The breakdown then was 22 transferees and 20 drawn from the earlier-mentioned list. On both occasions, KGNS President Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Megat Najmuddin Megat Khas was in attendance, accompanied by members of the Management Committee. In his welcoming speech, Tan Sri reminded the new members and their families that they are obligated to observe the KGNS ideals of discipline and decorum when enjoying its facilities and amenities. Golfers, in particular, were cautioned to go through the mandatory rules seminar and handicap test before teeing up for a game! After formal introductions to members of the Management Committee and the KGNS Management and Staff, a video presentation on KGNS followed, where the newly-enrolled acquainted themselves with all that KGNS has to offer! Here are some of the candid comments from our new members.

George Manharlal Ratilal (M 1168) Vice-President, Petronas

Besides being a renowned and convenient club, the golf facilities are excellent for a keen golfer like myself and the children, not to mention the indoor amenities like gym, swimming pool and library. The other attraction is that the members are friendly, regardless of age, therefore ideal for networking.

Dato’ Prof. Dr. Roziah Omar (R 309) Executive Director, Asia Europe Institute

KGNS is more prestigious and exclusive than others, a decent place with more quality members. Also it is convenient, near my house! The food quality here is good and at reasonable prices.

To all who have joined our ranks, Berita Subang bids you a warm “Selamat Datang”! 4 Berita Subang

he 12th challenges golfers to plan ahead plus be accurate. Players start from an elevated tee that presents a panoramic view of the entire hole, particularly the welldesigned landing area for the drive. Big hitters will look to hit a tee-shot that will get them close enough to the distant green to go for it in two. Shorter hitters will be planning the drive to give them an easy second shot that will take them close to the water that protects the entire front of the green to pitch onto the sloping putting surface in regulation.

Rules of Golf

Ball Lands on Loose Soil/Divots Through the green, loose soil or a sand-filled divot and the cast that surround the golf ball, are not loose impediments. A player is prohibited from improving his line of play by eliminating an irregularity of surface. Under Rule 13-2, A player may not remove or press down sand or loose soil before taking his shot except on the teeing ground. A divot, which is not completely detached, is not a loose impediment. A player may not remove or press down a replaced divot. Through the green, the rule also prohibits players from removing or brushing away sand or loose soil from the area in which he is preparing to drop a ball. Berita Subang 7

Course & Grounds

Course and Grounds Sub-Committee Report

New Maintenance Building is On

History The Course and Grounds Maintenance building, located behind the more visible car wash area, is an isolated place that is seldom, if ever, frequented by members but that is where all the machinery and course maintenance equipment are stored. However, there is not enough existing storage area and floor space to accommodate the number of machines and/or facilitate manpower movements, and provide security thereto, which prompted the C&G Sub-Committee to propose the building of a new maintenance building to solve these problems. During the 2006 EGM, the proposal to construct a new maintenance building was approved by the Management Committee and the KGNS membership with the budget of RM1.2 million, consisting of consultant fees and construction value. For the whole of 2007, the consultants waited on approval from the authorities but, in the end, with escalating material costs, the original budget of RM1.2 million was deemed insufficient to cover construction costs. The C&G Sub-Committee then tendered out the job, with the price quoted by the contractor used as guide to seek additional funding for this project. A revised budget of RM2 million was proposed at the 2007 AGM but was rejected by the House.

Position to Date Undeterred, the C&G Sub-Committee, led by chairman Mr. Lau Ang Khim, appointed a consultant, CKY Consultant, to handle this 8 Berita Subang

project with the following course of action: a. Appointment of Consultant b. Input by Mr. Lau Ang Khim c. Preparation of drawings d. Site Visits e. Issuance of Tender Document f. Appointment of Contractor g. Commence Preliminary Works Starting early 2009, every preparation was made by the consultant, working closely with Mr. Lau, with both parties contributing ways, means and ideas to save as much as possible. As a result of their untiring efforts, the C&G Sub-Committee is pleased to inform members that the project to build a new maintenance building is now a reality, approved for construction at a reduced cost of RM421,654.

Revision in CADDIE FEES Please be informed that caddie fees have been revised as follows: 9 Holes 18 Holes A Class RM17.50* RM35.00**   B Class RM15.00* RM30.00** * inclusive of RM 2.50 contribution to the Caddie Fund ** inclusive of RM 5.00 contribution to the Caddie Fund The above revised rates will be implemented effective

The festivities began with the Master of Ceremonies announcing, to the delight of participants, all the attractions in the day’s fun-filled programme which included: Golf Goodies Working together with pro shop operator Transview Sdn Bhd, the Social Sub-Committee set up booths at car park 5 where golf enthusiasts and interested onlookers tried their hand at a number of activities, e.g., Golf Demonstration, Crazy Putting, Longest Drive and Chipping Contest.

Fun for Kids Specially for kids, several fun games were organised; such as Colouring Contest and Sand Art Competition. Yet another crowd-pleaser was the inflatable bouncing castle that was set up, much to the excitement of the children. Elsewhere, the young, and young at heart, took the opportunity of having their faces painted by professional artists for a minimal fee of RM 5.00 whereas, the portraits drawn on the spot by the caricaturist were going for only RM 7.00 a piece! 10 Berita Subang

Eats and Taste At the Seminar Room, a bazaar was set up with booths hawking children’s apparel, cookies, health products and what-have-you. Many had fun having their hands and legs, forearms even, dye-painted in beautiful and intricate designs by Rev Henna Creation. In the same confine, Forest Secret ran a stall selling their cosmetics and skin products, created especially for people with sensitive skin. As in all gatherings, food lovers were not left out. There were stalls to indulge in Nasi Dagang, Ayam Goreng Berempah, Tosei, Briyani and other delicious items including kiddies’ delights such as

Cup Cakes and Keropok Leko. An enterprising KGNS member even ventured to set up shop selling thirst-quenching Bubble Tea!

Hand-in-glove with the Social Sub-Committee and contributing to the day’s festivities, the Recreation Sub-Committee pitched in with: Fun Water Games To the glee of the children, several swimming activities were carried out in the main and toddler’s pools at RM 5.00 per activity. Amongst others, one of the most popular was “Treasure Hunt”, where participants were tasked with retrieving (and getting to keep!) coins which were thrown into the respective pools. Prizes in form of coupons were given out to all those who won in the other games.

Other swimming events held: Main Pool • Swim 50 m Race (Front Crawl, Breast Stroke, Butterfly Stroke, Back Stroke) • Water Scrabble • Kick Board Race • Water Polo • Tug of War Toddlers’ Pool • Spelling Bee • First Bite of the Apple • Fishing • Spoon & Egg Race • Dressing up Baby At the end of the day, everyone had their fun.

Junior Tournament

In Search of Malaysian Tiger

KGNS hosts 4th Tan Sri Muhyiddin Charity Golf

KGNS was a hot venue for junior golfers, their parents and supporters during the 4th Tan Sri Muhyiddin Charity Golf (TSMCG), held on the club’s challenging Putra Course from 18-20 June. The event, the brainchild of Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, saw 80 competitors (50 boys and 30 girls) below the age of 21, who had been invited based on their achievements during recent amateur tournaments across Malaysia. Overnight leaders of the Boys and Girls divisions, Gavin Kyle Green and Ainil Johani Bakar respectively, were crowned the 2009 champions. Gavin won a RM40,000 golf scholarship grant by firing an evenpar 71 on the final day to finish with a three-day aggregate of 210 to win by four strokes over Kenneth Christian De Silva. “I am happy with this victory and I thank KGNS for a well-organised tournament,” said the 16-year-old Gavin, who had three birdies to erase his dropped shots that included a bogey on the 14th and a doublebogey on the 17th. Kenneth’s claim to second spot did not come easy as it required a sudden-death playoff with Mohd Iylia Jamil Mohd, after both finished tied after 54-holes at one-over 214. “I felt pressured a couple of times when Iylia got near the pin,” said Kenneth, who won RM10,000 in golf vouchers that can be used for coaching and training fees. Iylia, who won a RM3,500 grant, said: “In the playoff, I pulled my shot 18 Berita Subang

again just as I did before the last one. I managed to hit a decent one out of the woods and got a nice chip to 6-feet past the green. I figured I might as well as go for it because at the worst it would go past the pin, which it did, but I putted too hard and had to take a bogey while Kenneth made his par for outright second.” A further two strokes behind was defending champion Akhmal Tarmizee Mohd Nazari, who finished on 216, for fourth, with Nicholas Fung taking fifth at 217. In the Girls’ competition, Ainil was never threatened by the field, her closest competitor being Kelly

Tan, who claimed second position two strokes back, when she fired a two-over 215 over the three-day tournament. “I started the day perfectly,” said the 19-year-old Ainil, referring to her five-stroke lead at the start of the final day. “I was hoping for a grand finish. I was leading, and feeling very comfortable when it rained in the morning, but as soon as the rain stopped, my game got bad. My game plan was to play par as I did over the last two days. Unfortunately it didn’t happen, because I kept missing the greens on the home nine.” This KGNS lass, who now has

Kenneth, my brother, has a bag filled with 14 clubs and junk. It is heavy, but it didn’t matter because I enjoy caddying for him. We are a good team. He trusts my line reading.

The tournament also witnessed a hole-in-one by 16-year-old Nurul Shahirah Alfiqah, from Sandakan, on the 13th hole during the first round. Tan Sri Muhyiddin, the patron of TSMCG, complimented the event,“I am pleased with the support given to this tournament in its fourth year ,“In Search of Malaysian Tiger” that has been hosted three times continuously at Kelab Golf Negara Subang.”

New Faces in KGNS F & B Manager - Zari bin Hamid A new addition to the Management team effective 8 May 2009, Zari bin Hamid, who hails from Kelantan, brings to KGNS an impressive track record and extensive working experience in the field of F&B. A Diploma holder in Hotel Management (1994) and later a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration (2004), Zari‘s illustrious career began, appropriately, in the hotel business, in Shangri-La, to be exact. After an 8-year stint there, he moved on to yet another 5-star establishment, i.e., the Equatorial, for 3 years. The leisure industry was next, i.e., the Mines Golf Resort, where after 3 years, he returned to the hotel trade for 3 more at the Mandarin Oriental KL. The lure of working in a golf club may have caused his next move, to KL Golf & Country Club, where he stayed for 7 years. Thereafter, it was yet another short year at the Eastin Hotel PJ before finally landing in KGNS! The tally, then, is 15 years in top-notch hotels and 10 in golf clubs! Married and father of one (daughter), Zari recently celebrated his 45th birthday in June and, to date, finds life in KGNS no less demanding or hectic than his other workplaces. To a query by Berita Subang, he reckons that he has his work cut out for him here in KGNS where his own aspirations are to “improve products, services and overall sales in F&B.” Very much into the swing of things at Subang, Zari is contactable at 03 - 7876 0381 / 0388 Ext 70 and 71, as is his assistant, Wahid bin Ali.

Assistant F & B Manager – Wahid Ali For Sabahan Wahid bin Ali, 49, it has been a lifelong involvement in F&B and a vocation that has seen him through a mixed variety of establishments, i.e., hotels and resorts, golf clubs, events promotion and management and even on a cruise liner on the open seas! With a Diploma in Hotel Management from the American Hotels and Motels Association and in a colourful career spanning two decades, he spent his early years on home soil, i.e., Kota Kinabalu, to be exact, starting with a 6-year haul as Chief Steward, Bar Supervisor and later, Café Restaurant & Room Service Manager at Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort. The appointment as Banquet Manager, Shangri-Lar Rasa Ria Resort at Tuaran (1996-1999) came on next, followed by short stints at Nexus Resort, Mengagatal (Café Restaurant & Banquet Manager), Karambunai Resort Golf Club, Menggatal (F&B Manager) and Manager at Sinar Harumi Sdn Bhd, an events management company. In 2005 he moved to KL, having landed the job of Banquet & Convention Manager, Hotel Istana and left in 2007 as Beverage Manager. Then, Wahid set his sights offshore and sailed with Star Cruise Lines (“Superstar Virgo”) as F&B Ops Manager. Landlubber that he is, it was back to shore to serve as F&B Manager at Seri Cempaka Service Suites before the dining outlets of KGNS! A father of 3, Wahid’s family is back in Sabah which, however, does not deter him from his aims to “focus on increasing revenue, improving services and establishing good contact and relationships at KGNS”.

Banquet Manager – Ishamdi bin Mohammad Moulded in much the same fashion as his colleagues in KGNS, Ishamdi’s start in the business began with job placements in top-end hotels located, principally, in the Klang Valley. These include the Regent, the Crown Princess, Renaissance, the Flamingo and the Eastin which, collectively, account for the 15 years of experience he has garnered thus far in his chosen profession. As the new Banquet Manager, Ishamdi is charged with catering and banquet operations in KGNS at all our dining outlets and elsewhere on our grounds, e.g., poolside. The 36-year old from Puchong, Selangor is married with 3 children and developed expertise in his craft largely from “ on-the-job” training and courses thereof. Preferring a “hands-on” approach in carrying out his responsibilities and functions, Ishamdi’s own aspirations whilst in service at KGNS are for continued self-development and to broaden knowledge in his line of work. When asked by Berita Subang, he stated that his aims and objectives for Subang are “to maintain the high standards already set”, for which he felt there was need “to improve service skills” of the general staff. At the same time, coming from the hotel industry, from a work environment that is markedly distinct from that found in a leisure establishment such as KGNS, Ishamdi is hopeful that he would be able “to bring in new ideas” so as to make a positive difference here. Ishamdi is contactable at 03 - 7876 0381 / 0388 Ext 70 or 71.

To all the New Faces in KGNS, Berita Subang wishes you the very best and every success in your endeavours!
