Growling Swan 27/04


“He came he saw and he conquered”

Cassa Rifkin takes the lot!

Twenty six eager golfers gathered at The Swan keen to take advantage of the 1,650 baht green fee, caddy and cart deal on offer at such a good keep you honest type course.

It was balmy type of day with little or no breeze to help the comfort level. This course (as always) was in good condition and with the usual tricky type greens, which were a little on the slow side, assisted in contributing to good scores.

Two flights today, with scratch to fifteen being or A Flight and sixteen plus for the B Flight. With all the novelty holes in play.

In the A Flight it was the little master Sal Brizzi who took this out with net 68, coming in second net 73 was Denis Steele. Mashi Kaneta took 3rd spot with 75 net and Paul Hack fourth with 78 net filled the podium.

B Flight saw a great score of 65 net this gave Stuart Rifkin not only The April Mug but also The Anzac Day Medal. Well done Cassa! Second place went to Colin Stielow who shot a net 67, third went to Peter Bailey with Lindsay Slender filling the podium.
