Siam Country Resort 09/05
Hard to Get Hot, in the Heat
Tuesday was a visit to Khao Kheow, where we played the C & A nines, in that order. The first 6 holes or so were played without any breeze, and to say conditions were stifling, would be an understatement. The scores reflected the difficult conditions, and although the course itself was in decent condition, it was testing. Martin Hayes (15) led the way with a rather meagre 28 points, edging Jeff Wylie (6) on countback 16/15. Trevor & Martin shared the NTPs, with Trev knocking it to less than 1 foot on A5 for a handy 2, for 5 points.
Mountain Shadow was the venue for Thursday, with the weather being a lot more conducive to golf and the course on very fine condition. We played from the Blue tees at a modest <6300 yards, and with only a light breeze the holes were not playing overly long. Jeff got some redemption from Tuesday’s poor round to lead the way home, while recently returned Neil Harvey (19) surprised himself with 31 points & 2nd spot. Jeff & Martin shared the NTPs today, with Martin making a nice 2 for 4points, almost matchingf Trev’s Tuesday heroics.
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 (>60s) who have opted for the “Silver” tee option. Call 0890941841 for scheduling or enquiries.
Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing.
