GROWLING SWAN GOLF,
Played out of “BOGEY’S BAR & GRILL.”
Mt.Shadow G.C 27th of Janurary, 2020
Dave Maw beats “The Comb” in a countback
Fourteen golfers on a Monday chanced their luck and were prepared to take on Mt. Shadow Golf Course. Numbers are still down but are better than what we have been experiencing over this High Season.
The course as it played was in good nic, but in places very dry – actually you would say barren – with little grass if any. It’s a shame but it appears that they are paying the price by not keeping the water up to it. That is now 2 courses that we need to revue as we are down to play them in Feb. Cannot understand why they do this, it will eventually cost them money.
Weather was good to us but we are getting closer to what is the hot part of the year and the rain season appears to have passed us over.
Today we played one flight only, three placings and again we did include all the novelties.
Four golfers sorted out by two countbacks finally gave us the three placings on the podium that were up for grabs. Dave Maw came home with a strong back nine giving him first place with 35 points. He tipped out Keith Buchanan who ended up finishing second. Mashi Kaneta and Gary Jones were next to face the judges (both up for 3rd spot with the same score), and it was Mashi who got the nod to take 3rd place with Gary Jones an unlucky fourth.
Winners from Mt Shadow GC.
1st Dave Maw (18) 35 pts.
2nd Keith Buchanan (14) 35 pts.
3rd Mashi Kaneta (16) 32 pts.

D-For was set free, and he was vigorous in his ability to collect. Golfer’s, punters and patrons were generous donating to the needy of Pattaya. Thank You!
