There was a good turnout for this venue which was very good value and in top notch condition with well mowed fairways and consistent greens, however with thick rough which proved a challenge for wayward shots. Ross was the only player to play to his handicap even though he did have one blank. Next best were Gerry and Tony who did not challenge. The par threes were difficult and not too many were able to find the green and only three of the four were claimed.Neil Carter thought he was in with a chance, after all except the last fourball handed in their cards, only to find he had been relegated to fourth place.

It has been a while since we played this close and convenient course but a special offer persuaded us to change venues. We played off the blue tees much to the disappointment of a lot of our members who feel that the long hitters have an unfair advantage. Jimmy, Peter and Neil all came in with 35 points with Jimmy winning the count back with 20 points on the back nine to Peter’s 19 and Neil’s 17. Neil had two wipes, one on a par three when inadvertently hit off the wrong (white) tee and would have had a near pin,The last fourball was most unfortunate to be caught in the storm on the last hole and were unable to complete their round. After the showers we tried to wait out the rain but eventually we headed home only to find Sukumvit and Third closed because of the accumulated water. This turned into a three hour journey and the road to the club was underwater so we went home.

Near perfect weather greeted the golfers who headed down the 7 to one of our favorite courses which was in great shape which was proved by the large number of players who played to their handicaps. The best of these was once again Jimmy who makes it two in a row with his 39 points including two birdies, followed by Geoff and Gerry. Gordon Melia,Geoff Cox and Neil Carter all played to their handicaps. Welcome back to Keith Norman who started slowly with 9 points only to come back in 22. It is getting close to month end and Jimmy and Tony Robbins are contending for golfer of the month so the game on Monday will prove crucial. The Bunker Boys play out of The M Club located 100 meters up Soi 14 off of 3rd Road. No prior booking is required and all are welcome, merely turn up by 9.30 A.M. on any Monday, Wednesday or Friday and enjoy a game with us.
