EMERALD – MONDAY 6th July ‘17

By:  Mr B. Body

GLENN SMITH makes it 3 from 4.

Not a large group gathered to have a crack at Emerald G.C, it turned out to be 10 of our core group of golfers that were prepared to have another crack at Emerald, rumor has it (prior to today’s game) that if Glenn wins Steve Younger is booking the next possible flight to get back here!!!!!!!!!!

The day was good weather wise, the fairways were in great nick but the greens were still a little slow. Playing from the white tees the group attacked the course with enthusiasm and the scores showed as a result of that.

Welcomes were handed out to newcomers Denis Paul and we also welcomed back Martin Kempton and Fred Dineley having a last hit with us before heading to Aust. Take care Fred we will catch you on the return. Travel Safe!

Well as it turned out that man who has become the man of the moment went on to make it 3 from 4, he has hit a purple patch and leaving all in his wake. Glenn returned to the club house shooting 39 points, a great score, the bookies and the handicappers will be looking at this bloke from here on in. It was Alex Field that filled second place only one shot behind today’s winner, good job a return of 38 pts s very good on that track.

In today’s Photo is “That Man”, Glenn Smith showcasing one of the clubs that has turned his game around.

Worth a mention:  Some people may think it strange that with such a small field we still play for “Near Pins & Long First Putts”  At the Growling Swan we play these as it gives all Golfers a chance to get on the “Winners Sheet” regardless of their handicap!!

D-For our resident hound collected donations again for the needy youngsters of Pattaya and contributors are thanked once again. He is becoming quite good at this is our Donation Dog!

For some serious golf with a dash of fun, the Growling Swan welcomes golfers of all persuasions. We generally play on Mondays and Thursdays at any one of the fine courses around Pattaya. Please contact Peter Grey for bookings or any information on 0861 503086 or the bar on 038 413 003.
