The Growling Swan 11/07

Treasure Hill – 11th July, 2016.

Mick Johns too good for the pack.

With only 12 starters enthusiasm was high and I guess the opportunity of taking a podium finish may be at the front of people’s thoughts. We set out from The Swan with the weather looking as though it may stay on our side. Excitement was in the air.

Playing off the yellow tees the day seemed a little tough looking at the scores, but it is Treasure Hill a very hard course that will test the best of golfers. With their narrow fairways and the odd tree being placed in the middle on a few occasions it is a tough course. Weather stayed with us and it turned out to be a good day to play.

Mike Johns came thru with the best score for the day, his 38 points gave him the chockies, he was in front of Ebby with Stuart Mann taking third spot.

On return to The Growling Swan, we welcomed back Stuart Mann. No farewells this week. Stories of the day unfolded most of which cannot be reported, it may have been a small field but it appears all had a good day.

Alex Field let D-For off his chain to collect donations, the Swan’s players and punters are a very generous bunch and keep giving to D-For. All are thanked for their continued contributions to assist the needy children of Pattaya.

For serious golfing with a dash of fun (and compulsory sledging), the Growling Swan welcomes golfers of all persuasions. We generally play on Mondays and Thursdays at any one of the fine courses around Pattaya. We also encourage women to play. Please contact Peter Grey for bookings or any information on 086 1503 086.


The Growling Swan also caters to the bowls enthusiasts. Bus transport departs the GS on  Sundays at 10.00 am  for open grass bowling at The Retreat. The cost including return bus transport, bowling fees and a hot lunch is less than 400 baht so great value for a day out.
