Siam Country Resort 03/12
The Fast & The Furious
First up was Tuesday’s visit to Greenwood where we went with the A & B combination, from the white tees. The course was in good condition, with the greens running true & fast, especially on any downhill sliders, where 3 putts were an ever present concern. Joel Flor (23) got away to a furious start, turning in 22 points before spinning his wheels somewhat on the back, to sign for a perhaps disappointing 34 points after such a good start. Dave Edwards (17) showed some good shot making skills to complete his score of 33 points, ahead of Jeff Wylie (7) who got the better of Brian Maddox (20) on countback 17/11, after both had 32 points. Joel & Dave shared the NTPs, Dave making a nice 2 on B5.
With Thursday a holiday for the King’s birthday, we opted to play Friday at Pattana, with the B & C loop, the allocated test. Another great day for golf, although there were some calls for the wind to abate a little, which it did as the day progressed. B1 in the wind is probably the most intimidating hole in the area, and even more so when it is the first challenge of the day, but it gets easier from there (sometimes). Jeff Wylie (7) was best able to come to terms with the course & conditions, finishing with 34 points, ahead of Jonathan Pratt (11) who came home in an ambulance, (1 point in the last 3 holes), to finish with 29 points. NTPs went to Paddy & Jeff with 3, finishing with a birdie, a par & a 3 putt bogey for those short holes.
Siam Country Resort, Restaurant & Bar is located just off Siam Country Club Rd, after going under the arch past the 7/11, turn right after 50 metres, with the venue on the left another 200 metres along. Golf from here is generally played on Tuesday & Thursday, with the Resort hosting prompt presentations on both days. As a PSC affiliated venue we welcome ALL golfers, including Ladies & Seniors who have opted for the “Silver” tee option. Call 0890941841 for scheduling or enquiries.
Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing.
