  • The AROG team arrived in Tawau at about 7 AM and promptly proceeded to the Hotel Promenade to check in and get ready for our first stop, The Tawau Golf Club – Hot Springs course which is located at the Tanjung Forest reserve. This course was built and designed by its members, using its natural hilly contour. It took them six years to complete for a total of only 12 Million Malaysian Ringgit. If they had decided to hire professionals the cost would have skyrocketed to 25 Million Malaysian Ringgit.

    In My Hand I Hold A Ball,
    White And Dimpled, Rather Small.
    Oh, How Bland It Does Appear,
    This Harmless Looking Little Sphere.

    By It’s Size I Could Not Guess,
    The Awesome Strength It Does Possess.
    But Since I Fell Beneath Its Spell,
    I’ve Wandered Through The Fires Of Hell.

    My Life Has Not Been Quite The Same,
    Since I Chose To Play This Stupid Game.
    It Rules My Mind For Hours On End,
    A Fortune It Has Made Me Spend.

    It Has Made Me Yell, Curse And Cry,
    I Hate Myself And Want To Die.
    It Promises A Thing Called Par,


    This was indeed a remarkable dining experience.. Knowing the freshness of the seafood as they cook and serve it, everything is a delight! But I have to render 5 golden golf balls to their “ Fried Bangus”, being it as Dagupan’s pride. Truly the best tasting bangus in the country.

  • The Malaysian Association of the Philippines with the support of the Embassy of Malaysia holds an annual Ambassadors Cup in honour of the Malaysian Ambassador every year. Participants are VIPs from different embassies, and staff and friends of this prestigious organization come together to strengthen ties through golf. The A Round of Golf team was once again privileged to be invited, participate and cover this event.

  • A friend of mine told me this story. There was a golfer named John who went to a pro since he was struggling with his game. John gets to the pro and says: ”I need some help with my game, every time I hit the ball, it has a mind of its own and I slice it big time”.

    So the Pro says: “Ok, show me your swing, get your driver and hit a few balls”.

    John hits a few balls with his driver and all of them sliced way to the right. After the fourth shot, he looks at the Pro for some tips.

    Pro says: “It’s the LOFT”. “Pull out your 5 iron and hit a few more”.
