Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
A big turnout for our 3rd round with 47 players submitting scores. A shotgun start enabled players to go off at the same time and arrive in the clubhouse together at the end. The skies threatened rain all day but it never came.
Jari Rahtu made his triumphant return to Indonesia and cleared quarantine in time to join us. Juha Christensen, Patrick Chaundy and Robson Drumond were also back after long stretches away from the D.O.G.S. Glad to have you all joining us again!
Three time Champion Jari Rahtu was eager to play his first D.O.G.S. round in over a year and a half but found he was a bit rusty and ended up winning the Booby Prize.
Gaurav Shirke had a great round shooting 76 to take the Lowest Gross prize which went well with his Nearest to the Pin.
Jeremy Oberoi shot a personal best 78 with a hot putter that helped him co-win Putting Champion. More importantly, he collected 45 Stableford points to become our Weekly Champion.
Congratulations to all our winners!

The Rules and what it means when we play.

In a match, a player’s ball lodges in a bush. As the player is weighing up their options, they notice that the bush itself is growing within ground under repair (GUR), but the ball is on a branch that overhangs the course and is outside of the line marking the GUR. They takes free relief using the spot on the ground directly underneath where the ball lies in the bush to measure out the relief area. They then drop the ball in the correct way and make a stroke from its new position. What is the correct ruling?
The player loses the hole for playing from the wrong place.
The stroke does not count.
There is no penalty
The correct answer is 3.
Explanation: If the bush is rooted in GUR, then any branch overhanging the course is part of that GUR.
Is a player to be penalised if his caddie gives wrong information as to the number of strokes the player has taken and the error is not corrected before the opponent makes their next stroke?
Yes and the penalty is the loss of the hole.
Lost Ball, not Lost Ball, which Ball to play?
After playing a provisional ball, a player searches for their original ball for two minutes but then says, “It’s lost, I’ll go and play on with my provisional ball”. On the way to the provisional ball, the original ball is found within the three-minute search time in a very bad lie. How must the player proceed?
The player may either play the original ball or play the provisional ball under stroke and distance.
As the player had declared the original ball lost, she must play the provisional ball.
The original ball must be played.
The correct answer is 3
Explanation: A player may not declare the ball lost. A ball is lost only when it has not been found within three minutes after the player or his or her caddie or partner begins to search for it.
If you have any questions about rules please drop us a note to email@example.com and our Rules Guy 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.
