Growling Swan 10/9




KHAO KHEOW G.C. – 10th September, 2018.

“Phil Moore gets himself to The Podium for the first time.”


Well it was back to fourteen golfers for our trip to Khao Kheow a very good course but at times a little too expensive for us.

Playing from the Yellow tees we attacked A & B. We were told No Carts on Course but this lasted only for the front nine, back nine the sun had dried out and it was back to normal. Course was in Top nick as you would expect from these guys. Everything was better than good which gave the opportunity for some good golf with some great scores. If you didn’t have fourty points plus you were not in it! Weather was on our side and golfers on course were few and far between.

With the turn out we had we could only play the one Flight, with all the Novelties in play…

Maybe we saw a change at the top, Phil Moore (been playing a few weeks with us now) came out with an excellent score of 43 points leaving all and sundry in his wake. Second and third were decided by the count back, (these guys were a further 3 points behind the winner) Martin Kempton and Steve Younger ended up with the same amount of points, so off to the count back it was. Steve Younger who has little luck with count backs did not change his luck leaving Martin finishing in second spot.



1st Phillip Moore 17) 43 pts.

2nd Martin Kempton 11) 40 pts.

3rd Steve Younger 15) 40 pts.
