The Growling Swan 20/06
“Traffic Jam at the top of the Leader Board but Ever Green Ebbi takes the prize”
Twenty five eager golfers gathered in Soi Chaiyapoon 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.
Climatically 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 seventeen being or A Flight and eighteen plus for the B Flight. With all the novelty holes in play.
In the A Flight we had 4 Golfers tied with 38 points bringing the count back into play. Unfortunately with only 3 podium placings one golfer missed out on the prize money. The 4 were Tom McMahon, Bill Steinmann, Ebrahim and Sal Brizzi. Tom McMahon was the unfortunate golfer to miss out.
B Flight saw popular golfer Lorraine Percy take out her first win with us with Fred (Boris) Cuypers, and Geri Crilly filling the spots on the podium.
