GROWLING SWAN 11/4
“Viva LaFrance Patrick Poussier at the top of his game.”
“TAKE IT EASY HOLE IN ONE BONUS GOES TO B4500 THIS MONTH!”
With one late pull out we were traveling to Khao Kheow with seventeen golfers.
A very popular golf course indeed. We have been trying to get on for the last few months but sad to say always booked out, and now that pricing is better it may be harder if crowds suddenly appear.
So it’s off to K.K for what we would expect to be a good game of golf. Well after all is said and done there was not one complaint regarding the condition of the course, all were saying that it was in real good nick, Fairways mowed and tidy , greens ran true, but a little on the quick side. Bunkers were clean and raked as well. All in all the opportunity for some good scores one would think, or was it!
Two buses and a couple of cars were enough to get us there, with few people on the course we did not suffer any holdups at all.
We were playing only the One Flight with all novelties in play. We attacked the course from the yellow tees and were playing courses A & B.
It was to be Patrick Poussier that stole the show with his 43 points he certainly made the most of his day. Following two shots behind was Rod Weekes playing in his last game before heading back to Aust. Third past the post was ever green Steve Younger with Mark Stapleton and Paz needing to be separated by the count back system. It was Stapo that got the nod and taking 4th place with Paz getting 5th.
