Competed for since 1991, the Jakarta Interleague (JIL) is a golfing league where teams play each other throughout the season trying to gain enough points to finish at the top of the table.
Teams are made up of 8 players and in a typical match would consist of 2 singles and 3 Four Ball games playing in a matchplay format.
Scoring is 2 points for a win and 1 point for a draw.
2021 marks the inaugural year of the D.O.G.S. participation
The D.O.G.S. 2021 team is led by Captain Gary Danskin and his Vice-Captain James Bristow. The rest of the team consists of Jeremy Oberoi, Tim Knight, Steven Xie, S Robbie, David Moore, Rey Moore, Cucu Chandra, Malcolm Collis, Hitoshi Maruyama, Tribhuvan Singh, Kevin Dobson, Michael Mueller and Tom Grace.
The team has high hopes for their 2021 campaign and we are certain they won't be disappointed.

It was time for the D.O.G.S. team to take the stage as the team everyone is chasing down after a 2 month break.
This was a very difficult round as we had 2 singles matches and a 4 ball against the closest team in the standings. We were at the top of the table before this round by 4 points ahead of JAWS with 1 game played less.
Captain Gary set the team out at riverside putting himself and Tim Knight in the singles against JAWS . Tim won but Captain lost in 2 very close fought matches.
In the other match against JAWS Kevin Dobson and Michael Mueller managed to halve.
Unfortunately Cucu and Jeremy who lost a close match.
Anchoring the team, TPS and Malcolm finished with a win.
Overall, 5 out of 10 was a good result for the day keeping us on top of the league at the halfway point of the season with played 1 game less than JAWS.
With the next match so close around the corner captain Gary will be watching everyone's results with close eyes as the team is gelling together very nicely.
Finally, even though Captain Gary may be a little biased, he says the D.O.G.S. are the best dressed team out there in their Via.com team shirt . Thank you to everyone that is involved to help the D.O.G.S. team.
Gary Danskin 3 & 2 loss
Tim Knight 4 & 3 win
Kevin Dobson & Michael Mueller halved
Cucu Chandra & Jeremy Oberoi 2 & 1 loss
Tribhuvan Singh & Malcolm Collis 2 & 1 win

The Jakarta Inter-league (JIL) has been around for 30 years. For the first time ever the D.O.G.S. have entered a team in the competition.
In December of 2020 we began gauging interest and quickly found out that there were many Dogs up for some match play competition. The team was formed and we anxiously awaited results of the League's Captains vote to find out if we were in. Sure enough, in January we found out we would be competing in 2021. With all the excitement of the build up over, Sunday, February 21st was time for the D.O.G.S. to make their Inter-league debut. Perhaps as an omen, clear skies were the order for most of the day.
Captain Gary Danskin had Selly Robbie and Hitoshi Maruyama doing battle in the singles and teams Gary Danskin & Rey Moore, David Moore & Michael Mueller, James Bristow & Tribhuvan Singh (TPS) playing in Four Balls.
Maybe we are a bit biased but they certainly look like the best dressed team!
With a possible 10 points up for grabs the D.O.G.S. took 9, making Captain Gary very happy.
With the first round of JIL completed the D.O.G.S. are sitting 1st out of 7 teams . Not a bad start; just need to keep the focus and high standard up now.
Selly Robbie 2up winner
Hitoshi 3 & 1 winner
David & Michael 3 & 2 winner
James & TPS 2 up winner
Gary & Rey all square
