No one scored net under par!

Sunday’s game must have been a super tough one. It’s super rare to see no one scoring net under par. Usually, in a competition of about 20+, we’d definitely see 1-2 in the 70-71 net score range, but no, not this week around.

Uniputra Golf Club, nestled inside the compounds of University Putra Malaysia in Serdang, has a hidden gem of a golf course. With an unassuming club house, plain and simple, no fanfare, the golfing rates are very affordable for the quality of golf course that it provides.

Post-MCO rates are at about the RM100 mark, with Ramadan rates getting even cheaper. Anyway, 27 players signed up including 4 guests for the game:

Best score that came in was a net 73 by Nelson Lee! Congratulation for winning this week’s game! Nelson is one of our lowest handicappers with a course handicap of 11 this week.

Coming in 2nd was Leong Kim Ming, followed by Ricky R in 3rd, and Stefan Ng in 4th – all with a net 74. Finishing up the top 5 is Jaime Ross with a net 75 – consistently making top 5 in almost all games!

OOM update:


Still hanging tight to the top 2 spots – Zack Rosli and Ricky R with 159 and 146 points respectively. Gary Kan moved up to 3rd with 138, pushing Rid Afzal down to 4th. 5-8th place still remains with CM, Kevin, Jaime, and Brian hanging on to their spots, while John moves up to 10th place.

It’s Ramadan month now, so we wish our Muslim members a happy Ramadan. Games will still go on. This week we’re at Seri Selangor at a all low under RM100 ramadan Sunday afternoon rate – join game HERE

KLGC OPEN @ Mines: How golf competitions can be done effortlessly and at scale.

KLGC Open Group Photo

KLGC OPEN is the first of a few open events for the club that is open for everyone to play and win prizes.

KLGC (Kuala Lumpur Golfers Club) normally plays a weekly Sunday afternoon competition amongst KLGC members. Members win prizes during monthly medals, and order of merit points for all games. Guests are welcome all the time but do not win prizes nor points. All games are played around the Greater Kuala Lumpur area.

The KLGC OPEN was designed so that more golfers can experience the spirit of KLGC before signing up as a member. A few things that KLGC is proud of are:
– Playing strictly by the rules of golf.
– An encouraging learning experience.
– Golf etiquette including punctuality.

Since KLGC uses the deemples app exclusively for all registration, payments, handicaps, score submission, and live results, it was easy for KLGC to extend these events to make the KLGC OPEN possible.


The run down leading to the event:

The first KLGC Open was held at The Mines Resort & Golf Club. All 108 players registered and made payment upfront with 5 days to go before the game. No manual bank transfers, no payment on the day, and everyone could see everyone’s payment status on the deemples app, so we knew who was in and who was out.

Golfers submitted their shirt sizes in the “notes to host” as they were joining the game, so it was easy for KLGC to know how many of what sizes to order.

Player groupings were sent to the club 1 day before the competition, so that the golf course had sufficient time to prepare scorecards, buggy arrangements and so on.

Goodies were also shipped to the golf club one day before the game.

Golfers were notified in the game chat on pairings, local rules, and itinerary for the day before the game day, so everyone knew what time to arrive and what to expect.


Game day:

The KLGC team was there early to put all goodies (adidas Golf shirt and caps) into the golfers’ respective buggies before golfers arrived, minimising time spent and resources required to give goodies out to golfers upon their arrival.

Golfers registered at the counter and was provided with their score cards and an information sheet on everything already announced in the game chat.

At 730am – Golfers made their way down to their respective buggies waiting for them, with their goodies nicely laid out.

At 745am, the host did a quick briefing explaining everything already in the game chat and information sheet, took a nice group pic with social distancing, and let everyone proceed to their tee box.

8am – the siren rang and 108 players teed off πŸ™‚


After the competition:

Golfers returned to lunch prepared for them at the club.

Golfers also proceeded to submit scores into the Deemples app for their group. Golfers couldn’t submit their own scores, but required 2 other golfers to submit scores for them.

For more info on how score submission on deemples work:
https://deemples.com/golf-handicap-score-submission/
https://deemples.com/automated-game-results/


Results:

There were 56 prizes presented this game for 56 out of the 108 players. The competition was divided into 2 categories:
1- those with deemples handicaps (28 places)
2- those without deemples handicaps (28 places)

All prizes were provided by adidas Golf, which included a golf bag, adidas ZG21 BOA shoes, adidas wheel travel bags, and lotsa small prizes, and also complimentary green fee vouchers from Mines Golf Club!

The results are as follows:

KLGC Open @ Mines Full Result

For the category with Deemples handicap:

Anand Rajoo (KLGC member) took it away by a mind-blowing net 61, playing 10 under his handicap of 31, with a gross of 92. Congratulations to Anand for this stellar performance. Needless to say, his handicap index has immediately dropped from 27.4 to 25.3, a whopping 2.1 point drop.

Amir Luqman also played a killer round of net 64 coming in at 2nd, Hanis Hasanuddin at 3rd with net 66, and Alya Rahimee in 4th with net 67, and our second youngest player on the field at 16 years old, Leon D with a net 69 wrapping it up for 5th place.

6th onwards were all net 70 and above.

For the category without Deemples handicap:

Adyman Sulaiman took the win with an amazing gross 76. Congratulations!! Cva Gopal came in second with gross 77, and Syaiful Fara in 3rd also with gross 77. 4th and 5th place were Shahrin Muharam and Azman Mahadi with gross 79 and gross 80 respectively.

After all 56 prizes were given out SOP style, everyone sat back down for a nice group picture and went home happy.


Takeaways:

Most golf competitions in Malaysia play the System 36 handicap mainly because not everyone has access to a fair handicapping system. Now with the deemples handicap, everyone can have a fair handicapping system now at no cost. To learn more about the deemples handicap system, here: https://deemples.com/golf-handicap-deemples/

Most golf competitions in Malaysia also allow golfer to choose who they sit with. The KLGC was very firm on randomised pairing. As a competition, the integrity of it is only upheld if your score can be verified by another player. if players who knew each other scored each other, scores becomes questionable and integrity of the competition is compromised. After all, after the game, golfers were happy that they got to make new friends, going home with more friends than they arrived with πŸ™‚

If technology is used to help organise, human resources required to run a competition like this is minimized, and can be done multiple times. Thankfully with the Deemples app, the KLGC can now run even more events for golfers.


Upcoming games:

There are a few more games with adidas prizes, hosted by KLGC and sister club JBGC (Johor Bahru Golfers Club). Schedule as follows:
KLGC OPEN – 16 June 2021 – Wednesday 8am @ Seri Selangor Golf Club
JBGC OPEN – 18 Aug 2021 – Wednesday 8am @ Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club
KLGC OPEN – 20 Oct 2021 – Wednesday 8am @ Kota Seriemas Golf & Country Club
Click on the games above or just search “adidas” on deemples to register yourself.

The KLGC also plays weekly on Sunday PM, and you can find all their games on deemples. Just search “KLGC” on deemples.

The JBGC also plays monthly on the weekend in Johor Bahru golf courses. Search “JBGC” on deemples.

Yet another stellar round for Zack Rosli, taking pole position with the only sub-70 net score of 69. Followed closely by CM Chai at net 70 for second place, and John Charlton at net 71 for 3rd. Seems like the rest struggled a bit with net 75 and up.

KLGC monthly medal @ Mines March 2021

The first quarter of 2021 saw only 3 games being played before today’s 1st monthly medal. Jan and Feb 2021 KLGC Monthly Medals were skipped due to the movement control order because of higher cases of COVID throughout the country.

Mines golf club was happy to host us for our first monthly medal of the year. This monthly medal was also a special one since it’s also the quarterly medal, so instead of earning 2x OOM points during regular monthly medals, participants were earning 3x OOM points for each position on the leaderboard.

Half of our players got our club shirts, so most of us were very happy to wear them during this monthly medal. This year’s club shirts were from Crest Link, and they’re the special peacock blue mandarin collar shirts that make us look like what Tiger would wear, less the skills.

Jason Kok wearing KLGC member’s shirt

30 members signed up. No guests this time. 1st place was in the running for 90 points, and would immediately propel the the winner to 1st on the OOM by 3x πŸ™‚

Organisation by the Mines Club was superb. Buggies were all lined up for us by 12pm, so we could get ready and get to tee off on time. A lot of us couldn’t resist the amazing views by the Mines lake and caught a few more pictures in.

After a SUPER hot day and 4.5 hours, everyone completed 18 holes. Handicaps were super on point since there were many sharing the same net scores, making it a super close fight.

The one that stood out the most was Brian Trenamen, who came in 1st and won the monthly medal with a whopping net 64!! Beating 2nd place Zack Rosli (defending 2020 OOM champion) by a massive 7 strokes!! Jaime Ross, Rid Afzal, and CM Chai completed the top 5 with net 72, 72, 73 respectively.

The points that they gained are:

Prior to this game, Gary Kan, Rid Afzal, and Zack Rosli was leading in the OOM points with 37, 36, 34 points respectively. This is what it looks like after the KLGC monthly medal:
https://kualalumpurgolfersclub.com/order-of-merit/

Zack Rosli is now back at the top again, with 121 points, following closely by Rid at 117, Ricky at 108, and Gary and Jaime both at 103. Can Zack hold on to his rein? or would the rest catch up? We have 3 more quarters to go! Still early days.

This weekend we’re at Bukit Beruntung Golf Club and the week after we’re at Uniputra. Slots are already full for BBGC, but do watch out for slots opening up. There are still more slots for Uniputra, so make sure to sign up early! Click HERE to join now!

The whole competition was following strictly the Malaysian Golf Association SOP for competition:
1- plastic separators in buggies
2- no registration, since everything was done prior and digitally.
3- golfers went straight to buggies.
4- teed off in group of 4, no jumbos
5- no prize presentation. Just announcements of winners and winners came to pick up their own prize from the prize table.
For more info on how you can also run competitions following SOP, check out this video:

21 March 2021 – Bukit Unggul Country Club

No competition for 9 weeks!
After 9 weeks without a competition, the weekly KLGC competitions are back in play this time at Bukit Unggul Country Club. There were a few weeks where golf courses were already opened, but since some of the KLGC members were living in different districts, it was tough to travel to compete, hence only started after the MCO was lifted and we’re now in CMCO status.

Most of the competitions will be in the KL/Selangor area, and not in Negeri Sembilan at the moment, to prevent any one getting stuck at roadblocks.

First game back after MCO
This first game back was at Bukit Unggul Country Club. We rarely play at Bukit Unggul, but now that weekend rates are much lower and there was availability, it was the perfect opportunity.

20 of us came up to play, including 6 members. Congratulations to Jaime Ross for taking the win on this one with a net 69, 2 strokes ahead of runner up Rid Afzal, who beat both Peter Buer and Zack Rosli in 3rd and 4th respectively with net 72.

With this, Gary Kan climbs to the top of the OOM with 37 points, following closely by Rid Afzal at 36, and the defending 2020 OOM champion Zack Rosli at 34.

For the full order of merit – check out: https://kualalumpurgolfersclub.com/order-of-merit/

A few things to note
KLGC members pride ourselves for having the best etiquette. So a few things to note are being punctual, and helping others submit scores.

Latecomers
If the tee time is 12:30pm, golfers are expected to be at the tee box by 12:20pm. If you’re not there at the tee box when your group tees off, you can always join them later at whichever hole they’re at. Since you didn’t play those holes, and there’s a max cap for each hole, you will just take a 10 for the hole. However, for handicapping purposes, a “most likely” score will be submitted for those holes, for your adjusted gross score.

Even though your group is willing to wait for you, it’s best for the entire group that they tee off on time, so that no single flight comes back too late after everyone else is done, since results have to be tabulated.

Submit scores for your group
We try to uphold the integrity for scoring which affects each placing and the OOM overall. Scoring needs to be done by 2 other players in the group via deemples, for it to maintain its authenticity. If you have to leave immediately after the game, do remember to submit scores for your group when you arrive home, so that they too can get their OOM points.

We ensure this is possible by having a minimum of 2 other KLGC members in the group, so that even if the non-member doesn’t submit scores, the 3 other members will still get it submitted.

and if you haven’t watched this…

so you’re familiar with some of the etiquettes πŸ™‚

KLGC Monthly Medal @ Mines
Next up is the upcoming KLGC Monthly Medal for March 2021, which is also the quarterly medal, that entitles all members for 3x OOM points! We partnered up with the Mines Golf Club to host this event.

Guests are more than welcome to participate as well at a special price as compared to walking in or booking directly with the club.

Slots are limited for the Monthly Medal at the Mines, so do register soon on deemples!

KLGC 10 Jan 2021 – Bukit Kemuning

26 players joined the first-ever Bukit Kemuning game for KLGC last Sunday, including 4 guests!πŸ™‚

Conditions were great. Fairway was nicely cut, and bunkers were filled, and most importantly, the weather was great. And with the looming MCO, everyone was coming out to get their “last round” of golf in before any sort of lockdown.

New KLGC member Philip Cty played some AMAZING GOLF with net 8 under, rocking it with a gross of 90! Congratulations Philip!! Azlan Wahab, not waiting any longer before taking some massive points for himself as well with a net 6-under 66, with one of the lowest handicaps of the day of 12.

Zack Rosli, gearing up to accumulate these points in the aims of being back to back OOM winner 2020 and 2021, with a solid net 1-under 70. The 4-6th position was all at net 71 from Anand Rajoo, JT TB, and Ramesh Kumar.

KLGC Finale 2020 @ Glenmarie

For the KLGC Finale 2020 at Glenmarie Golf & Country Club, we had 32 players in total comprising of 16 KLGC members, and 16 guests. For the first time, the guest category had prizes as well, since we had a few sponsors come in for 2020, so there were prizes to give out.

Weather was amazing (no rain!), and the golf course organised some hi-tea snacks after the game. Everyone teed off on time, played some amazing golf, and made a few new friends.

Results of the game:

Results of the KLGC finale at Glenmarie – 27 Dec 2020 – Deemples Scoring System

Congrats to Ramesh Kumar for taking the win with a solid net 68 off a 20 handicap. Gary Kan came in 2nd with a net 70 off a 31 handicap, and Hanis Hasanuddin wrapped up the top 3 with a net 71 off a 26 handicap.

Order of Merit contenders CM Chai and Azlan Wahab consistently finished in the top 5, and new member Jason Kok (who became a member for 2020 JUST for this game!:)) came in 6th with a net 74.

In the guest category, Remy Carlos (a member of the newly formed Johor Bahru Golfers Club member) came in first with a net 69 off a 24 handicap. Az Zak Taylormade came in 2nd with a net 74 with a 4 handicap, who also played the lowest gross of the day with a gross score of 78.

Members got a total of RM1800 worth of Be Golf Pro cash vouchers. Guests got some adidas Golf merchandise!


For the Order of Merit 2020, we tallied it on the spot so we could give out prizes for the winners. Big Max and Srixon golf bags were given away to the top 8 on the OOM, and limited edition KLGC caps will be given away to the top 12 on the OOM.

Before the finale, position of 8-10 on the OOM, was a difference of only 1-2 points, so the pressure was on as this one game decided if they got a golf bag, or not a golf bag.

In the end, most of the positions maintained, and this is the final Order of Merit:

Congrats to Zack Rosli for maintaining the lead and winning the KLGC 2020 Order of Merit with 313 points. Consistent playing on a weekly basis ensured this for him! Distant second Azlan Wahab came in at 280 points, also consistently playing almost every week. Ricky R and CM Chai held on to 3rd and 4th spots respectively, to get the Big Max golf bags.

For the 8th and 9th spots, Hanis managed to play a superb game today getting 14 points against Kevin’s 3 points to secure his 8th position!


The KLGC 2020 has come to a close. Schedule for January 2021 is already underway, and all games are already on Deemples:
