Ken Hole Wins Despite The Rain
What better way to end the golfing week than a short run up the Motorway to the Bangpra Golf Course.
The current price of 1550 bht for G/F, caddy and cart after 9.30 am is great value for this course which seems to get better each time we visit there. As most courses are now receiving much needed rain, we are able to see just how good they can be. And this one can be very good. The greens are coming along nicely and a downhill putt needs to be done carefully or the ball will roll much further than intended.
On the subject of rain, yes, this day we did manage to get caught out, hence the excuses for poor scoring. Our first group stopped only for the heaviest and decided to push on. A Thai four ball also sheltering allowed us to go ahead of them. In the end the round took us just 3.5 hours.
Ken Hole let the rain get to him. “ I would have had 45 if not for the rain” However, after 22 pts on the front nine and a miserable 14 points on the back, he still managed to come out ahead of the pack.
Adam Barton, just returned for his two week break from work, continued the form from last trip and scored a credible 34 pts. for second place.
Once again a smaller than usual number came out to play, so only prizes for two places.
Ken didn’t make it back to the Bar, so the Green Jacket and the “Wig” both stayed in their wrappers. No photo op.
After the complimentary meal and a couple of coldies, most decided to make it an early night and looking forward to the next visit to Bangpra.
Winner………….Ken Hole (20)………36 pts.
2nd Place……….Adam Barton (13)…34 pts
