Growling Swan 22/4
PSC GOLF REPORT.
PATTAVIA – Monday 22nd of April 2019.
By: PRH Grey.
“Not sure if it’s Tony or Anthony Cooke but It’s Cookies day!”
All intentions were good, fifteen golfers had signed up to have a crack but on the morning we had four pull outs. Makes life hard when struggling for numbers as Pattaya is quiet!
Pattavia Golf Course, or fondly known as The Pineapple Plantation, was today’s venue for our golfers. We play this course every month and over the years has proven quiet popular with our golfers. It is a good course that is priced sensibly and not one that inflates the pricing for what others refer to as “The High Season.”
The course was once again in great condition, I am not sure as to exactly what they are doing but the cleaning up project has continued on with work happening with the bunkers. As said course was in great nick.
Weather played an important part in today’s happenings. The cloud cover offered us good relief, but when the cover moved it was quite hot. We took the course on from the white tees. Once again not too many golfers about.
One flight today with all novelties in play!
With numbers the way they were we would be having only two placing’s (unfortunate but that’s what happens when numbers are down) only the one flight saw Mr Cook (Anthony or Tony) take the prize 38 points got him to that spot. Second was the evergreen Kissy Buchanan, Keith is never far from the money. A very good and consistent golfer.
