Gerd Riedler Knows How to Play Treasure Hill
When we say we are going to Treasure Hill many seasoned golfers start the mind games with themselves. Many believe it is one of those courses that can’t be beaten.
Mostly it’s the crab grass that worries them, and the high index on the difficult, but challenging “crocodile hole”, or the narrow fairways. Forgetting all that, this course is always presented in great condition with plenty of grass under the ball but still good roll on the fairways for that extra couple of yards.
It was agreed that today the greens were a little slower than the norm but still got to the hole if you hit the line.
Being into the Songkran “Week” today the green fees were an extra 200bht bringing G/F, Caddy and Cart to 1350bht. Still the best value around.
Gerd Riedler knew none of the mind games as he played terrific golf to score 38 points (78 gross), thereby getting the chance to wear the Green Jacket for the first time. Very close behind with yet another consistent game, Adam Barton made 37 points to put the “A” flight scores way ahead of “B” flight for a change.
John Anderson scrambled his way to 34 points to take the honours in “B” flight ahead of New Satita making “only’ 31 points but enough to again be in the money.
Near Pins were placed on Hole 2 for “A” flight and won by Adam Barton. Good day out for Adam
The other pin was on Hole 6 for “B” flight where Iian Jones hit closest.
Winner..”A” Flight…..Gerd Riedler (8)……..38 pts
2nd Place………………Adam Barton (13)…..37 pts
Winner.. “B” Flight……John Anderson (27)…34pts

After a nice day out we sat back at Links Bar ( staying dry) and spoke about the day while sipping our favourite drinks, savouring the complimentary meal, and watching the frivolity going on in Soi Buakhow. Hopefully not speaking too soon about staying dry..
