D.O.G.S. First Round at Rancamaya Golf & Country Club

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

It's been 2 years since the D.O.G.S. were at Rancamaya and the numbers show everyone was keen to be back. A morning rain in Jakarta led to 6 no shows; however, 58 other players weren't about to let a little rain make them miss our 2021 debut at the course. The starter was able to let the D.O.G.S. begin teeing off ahead of our designated tee time. The morning rain was all but finished by the tee time and over after just couple few holes played. The skies remained overcast, which kept us from getting a good view of Gunung Salak but did keep us cool and made for a very enjoyable round.

Welcome to first timer Namal Kautsar and welcome back to Timo Karonen, George Baptiste and Vanco Pop Petrovski. Thank you for coming out and we hope to see more of you!

The shot of the day went to Rika Maulida who, while trying to extricate herself from a bunker, managed to hit poor David Moore in a rather embarrassing part.

Scoring on the day wasn't easy with the greens proving quite tricky as evidenced by Gary Danskin taking Putting Champion with 30 putts. He had to be happy with his 76 taking the Lowest Gross though.

Divya Ahuja made a rare appearance but it was worth it as he was able take home a Little Dog as our Weekly Champion.

Congratulations to all of this week's winners!

Full Lowest Gross and Eclectic standings can be viewed at our Leaderboard page.


MC Kevin Dobson also took care of some old business by handing Modern Champion Jerome Oberoi his free gym membership to Celebrity Fitness Fitness First on behalf of Dave Prosser.


Rancamaya has identified internal out of bounds on several holes by white stakes (as per local rules).

In order to speed up play the D.O.G.S. Committee has decided to implement a D.O.G.S. local rule only applicable for play during our Rancamaya 2021 tournament.

As per the Rules of Golf (rule 18) if a ball is known or virtually certain to be out of bounds the player must take stroke and distance relief.

Alternatively, for a two-stroke penalty, the player may take relief by dropping a ball on the fairway that is nearest to the point where the ball crossed the edge of course boundary to go out of bounds but not nearer to the hole. This option may not be used if a ball is known or virtually certain to come to rest in a penalty area.

Once a player has moved forward their only relief option is as provided by this local rule and not stroke and distance relief. If a provisional ball was played the player must proceed with provisional ball.
