everyday on the golf course.
The wild boars come by the dozens at night to bulldoze the fairways and even the greens of KEM TAHANAN GOLF CLUB (KEMTA) in Kamunting, Taiping, Perak, in search of earthworms. It is a 9-hole golf course maintained by the detainees. Based on the entrance fee of RM200 and a monthly subscription of RM20 it could be one of the most affordable in the world and most friendly in this time of economic difficulty.
If you want to exercise, this is the place because there are no caddies nor buggies. You have to carry or pull your own golf bags.
There is no need to fix a flight in order to play. Just come to the club at about 7.30 a.m and wait for other golfers to arrive and fix a flight insitu.
During rainy days, the fairways can be very soggy and be prepared to lose a lot of balls, even on the the fairway itself.
The management have tried its best to stop the wild boars from coming in but apparently, they are fighting a losing battle. The Chinese here are not keen in wild boar meat. The Ibans from Sarawak said wild boars in Semenanjung don't taste as good as Sarawak's. No wonder, the Chinese here are not keen to hunt them. So with no dangers from hunters, their population grew and grew! I even spotted a few going along by my fence early in the morning!
