Denis Steele and Rona Play the Field!
In high spirits the standard Monday field of twenty five punters gathered in Soi Chaiyapoon eagerly awaiting the challenge ahead. Final series in Australian football is closer and a lot of bus chatter was based on that.
The challenge being Khao Kheow, a great course at a great price was what we were to look forward too. Weather was on our side so I guess it was all left up to us. We played courses A & C from the yellow tees with of course our ladies were to go from the red tees.
Two Flights were the order of the day A Flight were for golfers 0 to 18. Denis Steele came up trumps taking out that flight with 37 points, closely followed by our “Court Jester” JJ Harney. With Hugh Knox taking out 3rd spot in his last game for this trip.
B Flight Rona Carungay handing in an impressive card of 44 points. A great effort Rona, I keep telling you Skilts, “She is coming to get you” Coming in second was Patrick Poussier with John Anderson taking 3rd ,beating Cindy Lauper on a count back.
