Golf between the showers On Tuesday 20th September we went to Treasure Hill. Driving on the 331 we saw a dark sky, what not promised good conditions. But we were lucky, the rain stayed away.

An unusual day at Phoenix as our chief meteorologist was only partly successful. It was the first time hearing the siren blaring a lightning warning.

Jomtien Club House 16/09

A small group today for our Plutaluang outing. That was a shame as it was another really ideal golf day. Recent heavy rains over the last couple of days were cause for concern.
