Growling Swan 16/11
Treasure Hill – 16th of November, 2017.
Viva La France, JC Lhoste wins on a count back!
In a week where we were not sure if the rain would stop long enough to get a game in, our attention turned to Treasure Hill GC.
For those who are not aware Treasure Hill is offering fantastic pricing still unlike other courses who are still running with the fictitious “High Season”, and putting prices up accordingly. For those with their heads in the sand there has not been a high season for 3 years! Anyway we will support the courses that support us!
There were seventeen golfers that took to the challenge. The course was in great nick, keeping in mind there is no room for error on the tight and long fairways. We played from the yellow tees on a day that was not to hot and more importantly there was no sign of rain.
Numbers today gave us One division only and all novelties were in play.
Well when it got to the pointy end of the day two players stood up in what was a low scoring day. JC Lhoste and Steve Younger both returned to the scales with 32 points apiece, the count back system came into play (much to Steve’s nervousness, he does not feature well in count backs) Well he was not let down (although the announcer gave him the nod) It was JC that took out the title leaving Steve to ponder what might have been. Taking out third was Colm Mullen with Alex Field filling the final spot on the podium.
1st JC Lhoste (28) 32 pts.
2nd Steve Younger (13) 32 pts.
3rd Colm Mullen (25) 31 pts.
4th Alex Field (19) 30 pts.
2 Glenn Smith
6 Tony Cook
13 Mike Gosden
17 Steve Younger
9 JC Lhoste
18 Mike Powell
D-For, the Growling Swan charity hound, collected donations and the players and patrons are thanked for their continued contributions to assist the needy children of Pattaya.
This writer would like to point out that the announcers mistake (doing the presentation) was rectified by Steve Younger which cost him top spot. Good Job Well Done Steve!!
