Siam Country Resort
Hihg Season, High Scores (for Some)
Greenwood GC was the venue for our first game of the High season, and what a perfect day for golf it was. Clear blue skies, light breeze, with the course in good order made for a great start. The C & B loop was our allotted combination for the day, and it was the recently returned George Gamble (23) who got into the swing with a fine 38 points, a few ahead of Jeff Wylie (7) in 2nd spot. Although there were several tee shots just off the edges of greens, NTPs were hard to get, and it was only Brian Maddox who managed to green 1.
Thursday saw us visit Emerald, and just as the groups were teeing off, a shower moved across the course, with several more during the day. The light rain had no effect on the course or scores for the day and it was Owen Walkley (10) leading the way home a clear winner with 41 points. The minor placings were headed by Paddy Devereux (23) with 37, ahead of Mickey Nield (9) with 36, while 4th spot had to be decided by countback after Willem Lasonder (20) & Dave Edwards (16) both signed for 35 points. Willem getting the nod over Dave 18/17. With the bigger field today, the NTPs were hotly contested resulting in Owen, Paddy & Jeff with 2 getting the prizes.
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.
