The day that was ….

Friday 19th February 2021 at Jagorawi New Course saw 16 JAWS Sharks brave the element after all the pre-game speculation of record rainfalls and potential flash floods to wash out Jakarta and Bogor over the 19th and 20th of February. Fortune favours the brave, as the players who made the effort to come were rewarded with a first visit to the New Course for several months, and a golf course in fine condition all round, especially the greens, during a period where several other courses conditions are like swamplands during this wet rainy season.


Young Geoff, Chris, Divya and TPS started on hole 1. A friendly match with Divya and Chris in one team and TPS and Geoff in the other team made the wet day a little brighter and more fun, and good practice for the upcoming interleague match-play season at neighbouring Riverside.

Divya started well with a par on hole one and played ok on the front nine but his game deteriorated on the back nine with a few triples.

TPS was also having a bad game with a number of double pars despite some solid drives. Meanwhile Geoff  was driving long and straight all day and played well on the front nine but found the back nine more of a challenge.

Chris played well in patches, the highlight being a par on index one but he too found the course challenging and made too many triples with careless mistakes. And the friendly match play was won by Chris and Divya.

Overall,lots of uncharacteristic high scores today, a little wet but a lot of fun on a very challenging course.

Jim, Indhar, Srinivas and Randy were the the 1st foursome off on the back 9, starting on hole number 10. Indhar, a Young Golfer who has been golfing for only 2 years. has a very strong golf swing and plenty of potential but is still learning about the game of golf.  

He had some very positive shots throughout the round, although giving up, about 6 Golf balls to the Jungles of Jagorawi. Then there was Randy a big hitter who was driving the ball longer and harder than the others, however some sloppy short-game play spoilt what could have been a well rounded game.  

Then there was Srinivas, who seems to be very long and powerful off the tees, but a little wayward, as the conditions at Jagorawi made it a very challenging  to keep the ball in play for many holes.  He was lucky enough to have gotten one of the better caddies at the course that clearly helped him a lot on the greens.  

Last of the group was Jim who started with a Birdie on hole ten and managed to dig in deep and keep his game together throughout the day,  having only minimal amount of issues with the conditions at Jagorawi on a day when many of the JAWS players struggled.

Steady golf was the winner for Jim today, keeping the ball in play earnt him a nett 74 and a tie for best nett 1, well played.

Aiden, Bram, Agus and Simon hit off from Tee Box 1 just after 12:30. The matchplay game of Aiden and Bram added some extra spice to this afternoon flight, and both players signalled their intentions to win, stripping their opening drives long and straight down the fairway.

Aiden’s game is going from strength to strength and with his usual strong tee box game attacked this championship layout head on and was rewarded for his boldness, puting himself in good positions to go for the greens in regulation and was too strong for Bram on the day who hit one loose shot too many into the jungles, as Aidan picked up a convincing 5 & 4 win to progress to the next round.

Agus was steady off the tee, hitting a very crafty 3 wood off the tee which gets into play, he could have gone home happy on the 2nd hole, where he knocked his 3 wood from 175 yards, the uphill Par 3 to 12 feet and knocked in the putt for a birdie. Simon, started with a double bogey, but was determined to bounce back, knocking a laser like cut 5 iron to 4 feet for a easy bird which filled his shoulders with confidence for the resto of the round.

The front nine was steady , and precise golf hitting targets; fairways and greens and giving himself more then one chance for birdie and several regulation pars. The back nine and amen corner from holes 10-13 threatned to knock his round off tracks but a solid last two holes put the carriage back on the tracks with crisp up and down on the 18th to post a nett 74 and a share of best nett 1.=

In the last flight of the day, Aldi, Parman, Hari Taufik and Willie N paired up to play in a four ball flight off tee box 10. On another day when the rains threatened to play spoil sports at Jagorawi GC, the weather did hold up fine right till the end of the round with some intermittent showers.

Even though it may not have been the most ideal conditions but certainly challenging would be the right word to describe, on a course which tested even the greatest white shark of JAWS.

Parman and Aldi were up to their A game from the beginning with a Pars on hole 1 and hole 2 meanwhile, Hari Taufik, the last years: Jaws match play champ found it difficult to get going throughout his 18 holes, on a bad day at the office.

Willie N also played an unstable round of Golf with quite a few penalties and lost balls, but he managed to keep calm amongst his frustration to register a respectable score and some loose change for his steady play on a very tough course layout. The entire round saw only 2 birdies being sunk: one each by Aldi and Taufik, nonetheless was a fun round amongst golfing brothers.

A afternoon of golf! at a course which was recently voted as the toughest golf course in Indonesia, and one we are looking forward to return to soon. Not the greatest scores but an opportunity for JAWS players to test there skills on a very challenging layout.

Congratulations to the Winners:

  1. Simon Reynolds & Jim Korbalis  – Nett 74
  2. Parman Frans – Nett 78
  3. Willie Noronha, Aiden Lopon and Geoff Thwaites – Nett 80

  1. The player picks the ball up and drops it. But the player will get a penalty, because the ball was in play after placement.

Answer: b)

The player is allowed to correct the mistake before the next stroke without any penalty.

A player has lost all balls after playing 13 holes. Can the player get balls from his/her fellow golfer?  

  1. Yes, only getting clubs from your fellow golfers is not allowed.
  2. No, a player must be prepared well enough, so that the player can finish the round without any help from outside, beside his /her caddie.
