Growling Swan 24/9
PSC GOLF REPORT.
EMERALD G.C. – 24th September, 2018.
“Congratulations Yarnni Winning in a 3 way C/Back.”
FIRST & FOREMOST: There are no PSC Handicap Sheets for this week!
Well we were due to play Parichat GC today, a course that did so much to entice us back every month, free meals, free beer kind and respectful staff. Well that was pulled up with a bump, got a phone call Sunday from the course (as you do they like to check numbers for the day) they were calling to advise green fees for the day, unusual. We were advised that green fees would be B1600 and of course I said you mean for green fee, cart & caddy. No green fee only! My immediate response was “Stick your Course”. A quick call to Emerald and of course here we are @ B1550 for Green Fee, Cart & Caddy!
To The Management and Staff @ PARICHAT GC it will be a long time before you see The Growling Swan again! To all Golf Organizers be mindful of the FEES!
Remember, The Thai way of doing things is if numbers are down increase the price so if we double the price and only get half the numbers money is still good. Thai Logic!
Now that that is said and done it was 14 golfers that loaded into 1 bus and numerous cars to head down to the ever accommodating Emerald GC. The course was in great condition given the rain we had had in Pattaya over the last week or so. Not a drop of rain fell on the day and playing conditions, weather wise was perfect. We attacked from the White Tees and I have to say I did not receive any complaints regarding the change of courses. One Golfer did mention that today he had returned with a reasonable number of balls!
We played One Division with 3 placing’s and all Novelties in play!
Talk about a log jam at the top of the leaderboard, we have 3 golfers all with a very good score of 38 points. So of to the count back we went. As far back as I can remember this is a dead set first for us!
