About the Tee Set Golf Society

The Tee Set Golf Society is celebrating its 33rd Birthday this year and is growing in popularity with every passing month. The group plays on Sundays and has not missed a weekend's golf since its formation back in 1983, which might indicate a degree of seriousness about what we do - but in fact it’s all about having fun. Tee Set is an inclusive golf society who welcomes men, women and children from all faiths and nationalities. 

Tee Set follows the Royal and Ancient Rules of Golf with one addition: you must be able to stand at the first tee box unaided to start the round. There are no rules for what you do on the second tee box with the exception that slow play is frowned upon.

Membership is generally from the expat community boasting nationalities from more than 20 different countries.  There is no obligation to play every week, nor in fact any particular week. A tee time is booked in advance but start times take into consideration what may have happened the Saturday night before, so we rarely start before 11am. We play on a wide variety of the many great courses to be found in and around the Jakarta, Tangerang, Bogor and the Karawang areas. Our schedule is published on our website but is subject to change. Access to the best courses at good prices has meant that our numbers are increasing with 40-60 players now joining each week, guaranteeing a diverse range of people to meet and join in a round.

The Society welcomes players of different standards from first timers to single digit handicappers. Handicaps are maintained under the USPGA system and available online for a range of different courses. Players must play with Tee Set five times or have a registered club handicap and be cleared by a committee member, following a round together, to be playing at our above that handicap. Members are encouraged to submit cards from any games they play outside Tee Set to ensure their handicaps are kept current.

The Society is managed and run by a President elected each year and other committee members. The Committee organises the regular Sunday events, participation in the Jakarta Interleague Match Play competition, a range of special events through the year including trips away, and the end of year Championship in November, which is always an excellent event attracting over 100 players.

As well as green fees paid to the course, a levy of Rp 100,000 (about $10) is payable upon registration each game which funds the weekly achievement awards (small cash prize) for various golf feats, such as Low Gross, Low Net, 1st Birdie, 1st Sandy Par, Most Improved, Low Putts to name a few. What is left over goes to help fund the Annual Tee Set Championship and other special events, to contribute to charities and to defray any other expenses incurred.

A newsletter documenting the previous week's activities and announcing the course booking for the upcoming Sunday is circulated automatically via the Tee Set website to all those registered as Tee Set Followers. Follower status is obtained by putting your e-mail address into the box that can be seen on every page of the site. Society announcements and other useful information can also be accessed on the web page mentioned above. On the website you will always find a number of attractive member benefits from various hotels and other sponsors, available on presentation of a Tee Set Membership Card. 

To join in the fun just go into this web page to register your name for the upcoming Sunday game.

Tee Set wishes you happy golfing in Indonesia and we hope to see you joining our group one day soon!

The President
