Growling Swan 25/9
Pleasant Valley – Monday 25th September, 2017
By Jimmy Olsen.
Steve Younger takes the Prize with 40 points.
We are suffering (as is most of Pattaya) from a lack of people!
All the same we had 14 golfers who had turned out eager for the challenge that was to present itself at Pleasant Valley Golf Club. Yet another great course that we do not visit all that often.
This Golf Course improves with every new visit, fairways were in good condition (if you got on them) and the greens putted true bit a bit tricky as you would expect. We went from the front tees, which given the amount of rain that has been soaking all the courses lately resulting in very little run was the smart choice of the day. This course is definitely improving as the years go by and with the very affordable golfing prices, friendly staff and caddies all eager to help, it would be no surprise to see this course frequented by us again soon.
With the small field today we played only the one flight and two placing’s only. All novelties were in play (although we had trouble taking them out) It was Steve Younger yet again coming up trumps he returned with 40 points 2 shots clear of his playing partner Glenn Smith.

As usual Thursday brings us a meal complements of the Swan larb chook one of my absolute favourites.
Once again Alex Field set D-For off the chain to collect donations for the underprivileged from Pattaya. D-for has raised over 400,000 Bhart and we are working on another project as we speak.
