The Growling Swan 25/07
Mashi is making a habit of this – WINNING!
As it Was.
On an overcast morning 23 golfers headed out from The Growling Swan to tackle Eastern Star GC. This is a course that we do not play that often so the challenge was on.
The weather was quite balmy and with plenty of cloud cover it was a little unpleasant. The greens were in superb condition, fairways were slow to start but as the day got longer they dried out and some run was obtained.
We played from the Front Markers which unfortunately does not agree with all but as we have such a broad range of golfers it is important to keep all happy. We played two divisions with all novelties prizes in play.
Scores were quite good with Mashi (in A Flight) leaving the rest in his wake with a great score of 40 points second and third spots were filled by Ebrahim and John Edwards. B Flight saw John Anderson taking top spot with second and third places taken up by Patrick Poussier and Rona Carungoy.

On a sad note Albert who was the owner and Operator (until sold recently) of The Retreat Bowling Green, unfortunately lost his battle and passed away yesterday. (28/7/16) R.I.P. Albert.
The Growling Swan also caters to the bowls enthusiasts. Bus transport departs the GS on Sundays at 10 AM to play 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.
