The Growling Swan 18/08
Silky Oak –Stableford 18th August, 2016
Mike Johns & John Anderson Come Up Trumps!
After a tough few days when we lost a great mate in Russell Calcutt, R.I.P Russell.
Twenty fours golfers set out to Silky Oak in overcast conditions. The course was in tip top condition and some good scores were expected. As always the water traps claimed many victims.
A Grade was won by Mike Johns with an excellent 40 point score. He won by a point from Martin Todd who putted magnificently all day thanks to an astute caddy. Big Boy Graeme Rice was the unlucky one who finished third by way of a count back also on 39 pts.
B Grade was taken out by John Anderson with a fine 39 point score. He was 2 points clear of Rob Cross who filled second spot by way of a count back with Rona Carungay coming in 3rd with 37 points.

1st Mike Johns (15) 40 pts

Back at the Growling Swan we enjoyed a spicy chicken and mushroom meal cooked by the girls. Farewells were handed out to the Hastings lads, Rob Cross, Rocky Lawson, Peter McDonald, Greg Proctor & Niall Stuart heading back to Indonesia to earn some $$$
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.
