GROWLING SWAN 16/5
“Colin Stielow comes home with a great score of 44.”
It was a small field of golfers that were venturing out to play an Old favourite Crystal Bay.
Generally speaking this is a good course for the fees they charge. The course was in good shape but like most courses in Pattaya lack of precipitation is showing. It’s getting that way if we don’t get some decent rain soon courses will have to ship the water in or close! Back to the course fairways were dry, with a little bit of evidence that there had been some rain overnight but nowhere near what is needed. The greens were fast but true, all in all a good course at a good price.
Weather was a little on the warm side, as it is their summer, but on the odd occasion the breeze would offer some relief. We attacked the course from the front tees with no complaints from the masses.
We would play the One Flight only with two placing’s, all novelties were up for grabs! We played courses B & C in that order.
Colin Stielow broke off all the shackles and put his stamp on the game, as reported 44 points gave him the bragging rights till next time! Second home and filling the last spot on the podium was Steve Younger, he finished 3 shots behind our winner.

Back at the Swan we welcomed back Paul Hack and an old mate of ours Jason Mills, we then with a tear in our eye wished Bill (Shooter) McGarvie a fond farewell Bill you take care and we hope to see you again real soon.
D-For was set free by Alex and the punters and players at Bogeys Bar and Grill were generous as always with their contributions towards the needy in Pattaya. All are thanked for this.
