Richard, Graham, and Karen Win at Challenging Khao Kheow
This Tuesday the Tropical Golfers decided to really test themselves and booked time at Khao Kheow. Twenty six golfers decided they were up to the challenge however, though it would be seen later many were rather optimistic. After some food and brewed beverages (not that kind!) everyone found their ride assignments and we were off.
Khao Kheow (literally “mountain green” in Thai) is a course that everyone knows to stock up on golf balls before heading out. Course management is at a premium here, and “risk-reward” shots have very few “reward” most times. Playing C then B, the island green was saved for the end. There were some high scores but they dropped off quickly as you will see. A generous fourteen of the twenty six golfers had some cause for cheer however. Special notice goes to Karen Brown who smashed her flight by ten shots, and Richard Kubicki by five!
A special mention to Carole Kubicki who gets the I missed out on everything award after being beaten on 3 count backs 4th in B flight then best front 9 and then best back 9.
Also a special thanks to Roland Raeber for getting 26 points as next best would have meant a count back with 4 players on 24 points and we would have needed an Excel spreadsheet and KPMG to help with that.
