The Growling Swan 29/08

“Rona” comes up trumps in front of the Boys!!

Fifteen golfers ventured out to take the challenge of Handling Khao Kheow, a great but not an easy course. Weather was on our side and as per usual the course was in Tip Top condition..

We played A and C Nines in that order from the Yellow tees. The course, as always, was a pleasure to play and held its own against most of the field.

With the numbers we had we were to play one flight only, so it’s all in. Rona Carungay (the only female in the field today) played well enough to take first place (on count back) from Mashi Kaneta both scoring a very credible 38 points. J.J.Harney took out 3rd spot, having just returned from Ireland and not having played golf for 6 months. A job well done, mine host made a suggestion that the 6 months could have been well used refreshing his joke book! The every green Ebrahim made up the fourth position on the podium.



1st   Rona Carungay (22) 38pts Count Back.

2nd   Mashi Caneta (14) 38pts

3rd   J.J.Harney (13) 36pts

4th   Ebrahim Al-Ansari (14) 35

C9 JJ Harney

Back at the bar, after a few coldies we welcomed Michael Prideau and the famous J.J.Harney. We then said goodbye to Paul Jackson returning to Australia, Paul did not have the greatest of games today but looking at his phone he chad taken many a happy snap with he and his caddie. Paul your problem today was concentration. Looking at the photos who could blame you.

In the photo from L to R; Mashi Kaneta & Rona Carungay. Still can’t get the Smile from Mashi’s face!
