Growling Swan 28/12



The Arch Deacon of Pattaya takes “The Monthly Mug”, well done Dick!

It was two buses and 3 cars filled with 25 golfers that headed out representing The Growling Swan. We were playing Pattavia Golf Course or as it used to be known The Plantation Course. One of The Swan’s favorite courses!

The trip generally takes an hour to an hour and ten, but believe me it’s well worth the journey to play on this course!

The weather was as good as it gets, a little cloud cover and a slight breeze to make life a little bit more comfortable one could hope for at this time of the year with over cast skies keeping the temperatures cool, but there was always the threat of rain. We got through the day dry with not a drop of rain falling.

The course was in good nick as usual with the greens were true but quite fast and tricky.

Div 1 saw Peter Bye greet the judges with a nett seventy, second was Mashi Kaneta with newcomer Akira Sekiya taking out the third position on the podium.

Div 2 had Richard Braimbridge first past the post with a net 69 This was enough to give Dick not only first place in Div 2 But also made him the winner of The December Monthly Mug. Second went to Pierre Cere, with Glenn Smith filling third spot.
