Landis Smooth At Silk

Low season is officially upon us and crowds are rapidly thinning as people begin their SAT (Songkran Avoidance Trip).  Still, eleven hardy golfers met at BJ’s Holiday Lodge for a rare trip to Silky Oak.

Silky Oak was in its usual good condition, and the greens are well tended.  There are many forced hazard carries off the tee, but if one has the composure to analyze the distance the carries are mostly for psychological impact.  Still, duffed shots pay the penalty.  Its that very hot time of the year for sure, but mandatory carts and a steady breeze kept the round tolerable.  Back at BJ’s the scores were announced, and Landis Brooks smashed the field with five shots to spare.  Some wondered if Landis was at the right course, and maybe made a wrong turn before Magnolia Lane?

  • Landis Brooks (9) 42 pts
  • John Davis (14) 37 pts
  • Dave Cooper (23) 33 pts
  • Barry Elphick (25) 33 pts
