GROWLING SWAN 27/8
Mt SHADOW 27th of August 2018.
Cassa Finally gets the chance to Celebrate!
Nineteen golfers departed the Growling Swan a little earlier than the 8.30 departure time that was scheduled, surprisingly all golfers were saddled up and ready to go!
Firstly, let me remind all players that once your name goes down on the start sheet, that remains the order of play! If one of your group pulls out or fails to turn up, please don’t ask me to place your threesome in front of all other players! In saying that, the “Captain of the day” or the groups involved have the discretion to make changes as he sees fit, once at the course.
The weather was overcast for most of the day which made for pleasant playing conditions and despite overnight rain, carts were allowed on the fairways.
The white tees were selected and lift clean and place on the fairways was implemented for the day.
Once again, it was the tricky greens at Mt Shadow that played a major part in restricting high scoring in today’s round. Two points separated six players and the count back was needed to determine second, third and fourth podiums. Missing out were Lorraine Percy and the Colonel (Alan Sanders) both on 35 points. Ruuuuudy Regenass took out 4th spot, Keith “Kissy” Buchanan 3rd, runner up was Steve “slugger” Younger all with 36 points, whilst Stu “Cassa” Rifkin, to the sound of many boos, took out first place with 37 points, compliments of his 19 handicap! (Soon to be amended)

Back at the Swan, our host Peter Grey bade welcomes to Graham (Patch) Lawrie, Dave Neal and Stu Cassa Rifkin who has been noticeably absent since his handicap soared.
With no farewells imminent, Peter thanked all in attendance for their continued support and once again, Alex Field paraded the Charity hound (D-For) around to collect contributions for the less fortunate children of Pattaya, the ultimate beneficiaries of all the generous punters and players offerings.
For serious golfing with a dash of fun (and compulsory sledging), the Growling Swan welcomes golfers of all persuasions, black/white/brindle, women/men/kathoey’s, gays/straights. We generally play on Mondays and Thursdays at many of the fine courses around Pattaya. Please contact Peter Grey for bookings or any information on 086 1503 086.
