The Growling Swan 26/5
“SENSATIONAL SAL” The Brizz does it yet again- 4 from 4!!!!
Another fine day that greeted the 23 eager golfers that were taking the journey out to Khao Kheow, one of our favourite courses! Once again it was to be in excellent condition with grass on the fairways and the greens playing true. The management and staff are to be complimented for the great condition that this course is in. We played B and C nines off the yellow markers.
Not much to be said about the golf other than Sal Brizzi, obviously the trip to Mums had the desired effect. Returning just over a month ago todays outing was to make it from 4 from 4, a great effort. Coming in second was his buddy Bill Steinmann with Ashley Taylor filling the third spot on the podium.
B Flight saw Gerri Crilly, with batteries recharged, returned from his trip to Aust and made his presence felt! Coming in second was resident scorer John Anderson with Colin Stielow taking out third. Always

Back at the bar, we welcomed Martin Todd, Alan Sanders, Gerri Crilly and Mashi Kaneta. After many cold ones and reflections of the day plans were being set for Thursdays adventure at Bangpra. This is a course that we have not played at for a long time. We are receiving mixed reports as to the condition of the course, one can only hope that the recent rains will work in the courses favour!
For some serious golf with a dash of fun, the Growling Swan welcomes golfers of all persuasions. We generally play on Mondays and Thursdays at any one of the fine courses around Pattaya. Please contact Peter Grey for bookings or any information on 0861 503086.
