The Growling Swan 18/07
It well may be “The Rain In Spain” but it is definitely “Lorraine In Pattaya”
As it turned out we had sixteen eager golfers wishing to chance their luck at the ever popular Mt Shadow. The weather was on the side of the golfers, so enthusiastic bunch hit the road to see what would come of the days event!
Stableford was the order of the day with the gents hitting from the Blue Tees and our only Lady participant hitting from the Red tees
The course was in good nick, recent rains had added to what I think is a good course in good condition. The slick greens held their own as they usually do. With only the one Flight today it was open to all and everybody had a chance. Lorraine Percy took the opportunity to edge out Mashi Kaneta (via a count back) and take top spot. Third was also going to the count back with Mike (the coach) Gosden holding Ebrahim to take the third spot on the podium!
1st Lorraine Percy (32) 36pts c/b
2nd Mashi Kaneta (16) 36pts
3rd Mike Gosden (17) 33pts c/b
4th Ebrahim Al-Ansari (16) 33pts
5 Alex Field
8 Martin Kempton
15 Mashi Kaneta
18 Tony Cook
Back at ‘The Swan’, we welcomed Bruce Walters, Niels Hansen and welcomed back an old favourite to us all Niall Stuart. With welcomes there are usually a farewell or two, heading back to Aussie are Allan Ray and Shane Young, we hope you both travel safe and we catch up again soon! Well we got into a few coldies and relived some of the better moments of todays game.
