Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
What a great weekend! The annual D.O.G.S. & Tee Set weekend was a big success; plenty of golf was played, funds were raised for charity, beverages were shared and most importantly the D.O.G.S. retained the Juergen Degert Trophy!
This year we did something different; organizing a fun golf day for charity on Saturday. Roger Finnie, Craig Edwards, Mark Johnson and Rod Williams put together the game and organized some good prizes for the winners. Most importantly 6,800,000 IDR was raised for Fiona Unity Foundation. Well done to the 47 players who joined us for the round. Thank you to all of the prize donors; John & Sarah Brown, Gary Danskin, Craig Edwards, Bill Lloyd and Dave Prosser/Celebrity Fitness-Fitness First.
Following the round everyone met upstairs in the clubhouse for the much anticipated party. Some may recall Kevin Dobson making an announcement a few weeks back about how he would judge the outcome of the party. We'll assume it had high marks because his prediction on how he would decide came out just as forecast. The course did a great job with the barbecue as the food was very tasty and there was plenty so that nobody went hungry. The sausages provided by Geoff Thwaites/Kojo were the perfect addition to the meal. Ruth Lajousky did her part to ensure a good time was had by all turning up with a large cooler full of jello shots and vodka soaked gummy bears. In addition to these treats Dan Javier/PT Delta made sure plenty of beer was available throughout the weekend and the D.O.G.S. also provided craft beers.
Sunday morning the excitement was high as players from D.O.G.S. and Tee Set began arriving at breakfast for the big match and to see who would take home the Big Dog. With 76 players turning up the course was able to facilitate an early start and the competition was on. As with the previous day the weather held and we were afforded great golfing weather and able to move around the course at a steady pace.
Things weren't looking good for the D.O.G.S. as the first 2 groups back posted W's for Tee Set. As the rest of the players started arriving things began to look much better. The matches were tight with most going down to the final few holes, but in the end the good guys were able to retain the coveted Juergen Degert Trophy with the D.O.G.S. winning 6-4 with 2 matches drawn. Captain Dougy McQuater gracefully accepted the trophy from Ric Wymer.
In the daily competition the Lady Dogs were well represented winning 5 prizes; Nearest to Pin - Rika Maulida and Sarah Brown, Longest Drive - Rey Moore, Booby Prize - Velma Yolanda and Most Exercise - Risa Tirtayasa. Divya Ahuja somehow made only 25 putts, quite a feet on the very dodgy greens, to win Putting Champion. Gary Danskin shot a 71 to win Lowest Gross and Jeremy Oberoi's incredible 46 points were more than enough for Weekly Champion.
Matt Timbrell started the day with faint hopes of winning the Best 4 Lowest Gross trophy but Gary Danskin, who has won the last 5, wasn't having any of it; shooting a 71 to end any chance of being caught and earn his 6th Lowest Gross Champion title.
The Eclectic competition at Rancamaya was, as usual, a tight fought affair and as is becoming the norm, the winner came from behind with a previous champion leapfrogging players looking for their first Blue Jacket. Terence Martin was the leader going into the weekend but was away to Malaysia and ended up taking 3rd place. Dave Keddington was able to improve 1 spot to finish Runner Up. Coming all the way out of 18th place, making 6 improvements and shooting his best ever round of 79, Jeremy Oberoi was able to capture his second Big Dog in a row becoming our 2021 Rancamaya Eclectic Champion.
Congratulations to all of this week's winners!
Full Lowest Gross and Eclectic standings can be viewed on our Leaderboard page.
We are happy to announce that during our Rancamaya Eclectic Tournament we collected 3,606,000 IDR which will be donated to Animal Sanctuary Trust Indonesia.
Thank you to the D.O.G.S. committee, Sarah Brown, Rod Williams, Kevin Dobson, Douglas McQuater and Craig Edwards and to Rancamaya for all their hard work in making this a successful tournament!
Thank you to Tee Set for another memorable weekend together. The D.O.G.S. are on a break for the next 2 weekends but if you're looking for a round Tee Set is a great option.
The D.O.G.S. return to play will be at a well known Jakarta course the we have never held a tournament at. It has recently gone through some renovations and we hear nothing but good reviews about the revamped course. Some may overlook this course due to it's relatively short length, but the tight fairways will create their own challenge. Come on out and enjoy the course with us; grab a friend and sign up to play.

The ball comes close to a dangerous snake or a bees nest to a rest. What is the situation for the next shot?
The ball has to be dropped one club length from the closest point of relief, where the shot is not creating a danger for the player any more.(not closer to the pin). No penalty applies.
If the ball is in a hazard the ball can be taken to a similar hazard not closer to the pin, which is not in the danger zone and not closer to the pin (no penalty applies). If this is not possible, it can be played outside the hazard, but 1 stroke has to be added.
Is it allowed to use tape on the hand or the body of the player?
It is allowed to use tape for medical reasons, e.g. to avoid blister or to tape an injury.
It is to not allowed to tape the body to improve the grip or to support you in playing in any way, e.g. fix two fingers together for a better grip.
Is a muddy area temporary water?
A muddy ground is only temporary water, if you can see water on the surface or when
you walk or stand water is emerging at the surface.
Jumping to get water out of the ground is not allowed.
If you have any questions about rules please drop us a note to email@example.com and our Rules Guys, Rudie Basson and Jens Roestel will answer on our website.
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.
