D.O.G.S. First Game Rainbow Hills Golf Club

Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,

We’re coming back, slowly but surely.

Six players registered for Saturday’s comeback game at Rainbow Hills so only 2 flights. One flight played the Mountain and Stone courses and the other Mountain and Forest (they turned the wrong way after coming of the 9th green of the Mountain course). No matter, the course was quiet and in excellent condition.

Cedric Lee, Rod Williams, Vinay Mathur, Malcolm Collis, Vincent Cousin and Kevin Dobson ready to get the D.O.G.S. back in play.

After checking in with either the Penduli Lindungi app or showing your vaccination certificate and registering at the Pro Shop as usual, where they had a record of prepayment, the starters were very welcoming to see the D.O.G.S. coming back.

A big welcome back to Vincent Cousins after several years away from D.O.G.S. and good to see Cedric Lee back again.

The club house was ‘open’ in that you could order food and drink, although the food was for takeaway. No locker room facilities but the atmosphere was warm and friendly with all the health protocols in place.

As the course was quiet we started on time and were all finished in good time. We even sat and had a few beers in the club house before heading off home.

Due to current restrictions we are not running an Eclectic tournament; we will host fun rounds which allow for D.O.G.S. to get together on the course with a look to having Stableford games for the Little Dog when reduced restrictions allow.

Grab a friend and sign up to play.

As PPKM restrictions started before our final round at Pangkalan Jati the tournament was not completed. We had hoped to possibly get back for the round after restrictions end but with them continuing we have decided to call the tournament with the current standings being the final standings. With that we would like to congratulate Tribhuvan "TPS" Singh as our Pangkalan Jati Eclectic Champion for 2021! Runner up was Fernando Gaggino and 3rd place went to Shlok Rajeev. Gary Danskin was our Lowest Gross Champion.

Check out full results on our Leaderboard.

We are proud to announce that 4,140,000 IDR was collected in our charity bucket over the course of the tournament. We have subsidized from our game fees to bring the total up to 5,000,000 IDR which has been handed over to Yayasan HOG Indonesian Chapter (YHOG). Well done everyone!


September is almost here and with it comes the annual Asian Tigers Golf Tournament. This is a challenging tournament with a unique format that always has good attendance by D.O.G.S. Check out the details on our Upcoming Golf Tournaments page and get registered.

See you at the course,




The Rules and what it means when we play.

Courtesy of fellow Dog,

Jens Roestel,

R&A First Grade Umpire.

Today we provide a short reminder about the new rules and some comments on them

  1. Search time reduced from 5 mins to 3 mins

    1. Who looks at the watch; when we start the search or even is wearing one. Please do not overdo and block the next flight; if you ask the next flight to play through you might find some more time for searching.

  2. Ball moved during search

    1. replace, no penalty

  3. Embedded ball

    1. Free relief anywhere through the course

    2. Embedded means also only one mm embedded. Mark, pick up and clean, place close to the original position as possible.

  4. Measuring a drop

    1. Use longest club (except putter)

  5. Take drops from knee height rather than shoulder height

  9. Loose impediments can be removed anywhere including hazards

  10. Taking a dropping out of bunker.

    1. Two penalty strokes, drop not closer to the hole

  11. Water hazards are now called "penalty areas" and there is no penalty for touching the ground intentionally in a penalty area.

  12. "Local rule" (this is down to club or tournament committees to decide) allows golfers to drop in the area of where a ball is lost or out of bounds under a two-stroke penalty

  13. Ball moves on green after being marked

    1. Replace without penalty.

    2. Ball moves before being marked – play it as it lies

  14. Ball accidentally moves on putting green

    1. Replace no penalty

  15. All damage to green can now be repaired.

    1. Only damage. A bad closed old hole is not damage

  17. Caddie assisting with alignment is not permitted, for any shot

    1. Before taking a stance, the caddie can discuss the alignment with the player and can place the ball for the putt.

  18. Putting with flagstick in hole is now permitted

  19. Ball wedged against flagstick and side of hole is now deemed as holed, if any part of the ball is below the level around the hole

  20. Caddie can stand behind player at any time, except during putting, as long as the caddie does not offer any help.

If you have any questions about rules please drop us a note to and our Rules Guy Jens Roestel will answer on our website.



Player Safety

To ensure everyone's safety, players are reminded to follow the protocols set by Jakarta's COVID-19 Response Team:

  • Wear a mask properly wherever you go

  • Wash your hands with soap and running water regularly

  • Maintain a safe distance of 1.5 to 2 meters

Lastly, we certainly enjoy when you come out to play with us, but if you are ill, it is best to stay home and rest.

President's Challenge

Due to the shut down of courses in July and August we have revised the schedule. We are down to the last 15 players. Please check the bracket and get your game scheduled.

Matches can be played anywhere at anytime as long as both players agree. Challengers are on the lower rung and should initiate the request to play. Check out the board to see who you are playing against.

If you need some help scheduling please ask anyone from the Committee and we'll be glad to assist.


Due to the current restrictions at courses Interleague is not able to schedule events. As a result the season has been canceled.

Not the result we would have wished for as D.O.G.S. were tied for first. However, we are certain they will be able to continue their success next year. Well done to Captain Gary Danskin and his team.

WhatsApp Group

We have 2 WhatsApp groups for members; our Chatter group which is used for sharing jokes and non-D.O.G.S. related information and our Updates group where we share information specific to D.O.G.S. rounds. If you would like to be added to either or both of these groups please send us an email with your cell phone number to
