Growling Swan 17/10


Bangpra – 17th October, 2017

Mashi Zero’s In On The Monkey Course!


It was A Bakers Dozen that headed out to Bangpra with dark threatening clouds overhead, we were not sure what we heading in for. The weather changed for the better and the day turned quite good for Golf. We had a feeling that the rain would not arrives as there were plenty of monkeys out with their young. If there was any chance of rain they would not be here.

The course is badly in need for some maintenance, grass on fairways was okay but the first cut left a lot to be desired. Golfers were losing balls in the first cut and that should not be.

We only had the one Division given the numbers, and victory was awarded to Mashi Kaneta who returned with the best score for the day, 34 points was enough to get the nod from the judges. Second place was filled by Patrick Poussier, three points behind. Third and fourth went to the count back with “Buffalo” Bill Steinmann getting the nod and the prize over Rudy Regenass.

Unlucky Rudy you have seem to have no luck with count backs!

Back at the Growling Swan we enjoyed some cool refreshments (cold Beer), even though the temperature was quite mild in Pattaya for this time of year.

We took the opportunity to welcome back the following golfers, Buffalo Bill Steinmann, Mashi Kaneta and Gordon Clegg. We hope you enjoyed your golf. On a side note it was good of Mashi to ring “The Bell” shouting us all a drink! Well done Mashi!

Alex 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.
