The Growling Swan 17/10


They were referred to as The 3 Amigos, The 3 Musketeer’s but were better known to most of us as The 3 Stooges!

As it happened!

Two buses loaded with enthusiastic golfers departed The Swan for the trip up the highway to Greenwood Golf Club. The travel time to this wonderful course is getting shorter as the roadworks continues’ one can only hope that they do not do anything stupid with the pricing.

Bus chatter was about the weather and the condition of the course, given the rain we had had. Fifty min later our questions were answered, “No Carts on Course” so we played “Pick, Clean & Place” as the course did show signs of holding water.

We played courses B & C and with no run on the fairways we went from the front tees. The course was in good condition considering the rain, with the greens also playing true. Weather was on our side with no sign of rain, it became quite warm as the day went on. As fate has it the skies opened up as soon as the second bus pulled into The Swan.

Randy Lodinger put in a great solo effort amassing 40 points taking him 3 points clear off the field. We had to use the count back system as 2nd & 3rd both returned the same scores! Winning the count back was Ebrahim pushing Mike Jones to 3rd position.

Back at The Growling Swan we welcomed back Mashi Kaneta, Glenn Henriksen and Glen Grbesa. There were no farewells to report. Well the coldies flowed as mine host was rubbing his hands together as the deluge looked to keep punters in the bar for a while.

Niall Stuart let D-for from his chain to run amongst the punters and do what he does best. To collect for the needy in Pattaya. Again golfers and punters to be congratulated for the contributions to D-For!

The Growling Swan also caters to the bowls enthusiasts. Bus transport departs the GS on Sundays at 10am for open grass bowling at The Retreat. The cost including return bus transport, bowling fees and a hot lunch is about 400 baht, so great value for a day out!
