Tropical Golf 04/05
Tom Terrific At Pattavia!
Greetings to our huge fan base. Word is we have three regular readers now. Time to start charging subscription fees. This Friday the Tropical Golfers played on Thursday. Some holiday that many Thais didn’t even know about increased the rates on Friday, so the adjustment was made. The destination this Thursday was Pattavia. A longer drive than most but the roads in have steadily improved.
Some days seem to be cursed. Simple things made difficult. It all started when one golfer missed the fact we were playing a day early, despite the change being well advertised and remembered by all the rest. This golfer was the important kind – the kind with a car. Scramble time. Then another car went to that other “P” course, Pleasant Valley. Eventually we all met at Pattavia and under hot weather started the round. Pattavia is in good condition, but those greens, in good shape by the way, are tricky. People who advise to “hit below the pin” obviously overestimate our skills. The round over it was time to have the presentation, this time at the course. Nice.
The scores were pretty good, but at the top Tom Herrington (c/h 17) won the day with a most excellent 41 points! Tom didn’t collapse on the back this time. Next returning Joel Flor (30) returned in style with a enviable 40 points, followed by the ever present Mashi (17) with 39. May our next round be trouble free!
Near pins: Joel Flor, Dick Warberg.
