Monday, August, 22nd, Eastern Star C.C. White Tees -- Stableford --
The BB's were obviously discomfited by the well-presented Eastern Star C.C.: not one of the thirteen players managed to play to their handicap; and 34 stableford points took first place.
Hip Hip Hooray for the groundskeeper! Unlike the vast ...
Stuart banks some good scores
On Tuesday we returned to Bangphra golf course where the caddies are possibly the best turned out in the area with well tailored uniforms in subtle colours that are pleasant on the eye without being too glaring.
Paddy grabbed a young caddy while I had her great-great-grandmother and the ...

Bangpra ( Stableford) One of out Tuesday regulars, this is a quality Course and as I am informed, the first Golf Course on the Eastern Seaboard. I may be wrong as their may have been minor Courses but I think not. With this being around for many years it is a very mature Course and we see a lot of wild life here. ...

Neil on swing at Phoenix
On Tuesday 16h August we went with 3 groups to Phoenix. We played the Lakes & Ocean Course. We are still not used to the redesign of the Lakes. The players who know the old layout don't like the changes very much. We expected that the course would be in a very good condition after the king's ...

There must be something about golfing at Treasure Hill, because today 3 bus loads and a few cars transported 29 golfers. We left The Growling Swan a few minutes early for the trip up 331.
Yes there is something about ...
The track has finally recovered from the summer drought: t-boxes with grass, fairways lush, and greens running true but slower than usual. The only downside on this particular day were the bunkers: seemed to be clad with a layer of cement. What's with the bunker maintenance on many of the courses in the area? How hard can ...

I knew it was going to be a good day out when I got an email asking me which two Nines we wanted to play as Pattana had said we could play any two. This was a difficult decision as all are very playable, however as I said I did not mind which we played if I did not have to ‘Tee Off’ on B1. So we played C1 and A1 in ...
Pattaya cc was the game just a short ride down the
36. easy checking and off the first tee 40 minutes early under sunny skies
And a very stiff wind all day. The course was in good condition with
Hard fairways and the wind giving us some long drives downwind.
Back in the clubhouse the winner was the ever colorful
Come and join our 154th Member’s Tournament at Plutaluang Navy Golf Course.

This Friday the Tropical Golfers played on Thursday. Well, you know what we mean. Friday being Mother's Day made the change necessary. With the usual Tuesday golf and the PSC Monthly on Wednesday, some golfers were out for their third ...

Green Valley ( Stableford) There may be three Golf Courses in this complex, but this is by far my own personal favourite. On this day we had a good turnout, and nearly all arrived at the golf course. One of our players went from home and I got a SMS after I finished saying he was not arriving as he got lost. So one ...

This Friday the Tropical Golfers made another visit to Silky Oak. Usually this is just a once or twice/year visit for the TG, but good rates and favorable reviews have put it in the rotation a few additional times. It was a later than usual start and many of the golfers were able to sleep ...
