The Growling Swan 24/11
PSC GOLF REPORT – GROWLING SWAN – STABLEFORD
Eastern Star GC – 24th of November 2014
Marc Henkel comes up trumps.
An intrepid band of golfers headed off eager to test their skills at our scheduled game, Eastern Star GC.
Everything ran smoothly which always makes life easy for an organiser.
Welcomes were handed out to Pattaya residents Niall Stuart and Phil Taylor.
Colm Mullen indicated he was keen to improve on the last start effort as he’d spotted spoors not even the tree huggers or environmentalists were aware existed.
Hitting off under cloudy skies from the yellow tees the course was found to be in good condition.
The greens despite looking as lumpy as a pensioner’s gravy and slower than a new year’s evening party at your maiden aunts, putted ok.

Long first putts were won by Roy Dayton on the 9th and Kae the 18th.
The Compass Cap went to Niall Stuart who was of the opinion he’d have more chance of dropping a ping pong ball into an egg cup from the top of the Empire State Building during a hurricane than rolling in a two foot putt.
Deefa the dog again received donations from the golfers for the needy children of Pattaya.
Drutnote: To the people who treat the game like life and death – we are social golfers, stop chewing on the serious pills.
