SIAM Country Resort 29/07
Qatari Lads Show Some Form
Tuesday saw us visit Greenwood with the C & A combination our allotted test of the day. The course was in good condition with both fairways and greens much better than several more high profile courses. We had 3 groups today and moved along at a steady pace, under clear skies with a light breeze to relieve some of the humidity. Jeff Wylie (7) who had not played to his handicap throughout July with SCR, finally returned to some form and recorded a days best of 38 points. Stan Rees (25), 1 of our regular visitors from Qatar, also showed some form to record 34 points, along with SCR regular Jonathan Pratt (10). Stan getting the nod over Jonathan on countback to the last 6, 13/9, after both recorded 17 on the back 9. NTPs went to Jeff & Martin.
Wangjuntr Valley was our venue for Thursdays competition where we played from the White tees at just over 6000 yards, which made the course a lot more user friendly for all. With 2 greens on each hole, today we played to the left side greens, and despite some players seeing the course for the 1st time, most were very complimentary on the conditions and layout. Jeff Wylie (7) was able to manage his way around for a days best of 36 points, ahead of Qatari visitor Ian Waddell (20) with 35 points. 3rd spot was decided on countback with Mike Gerrard (16) just edging playing partner Bill Hewitt (17) 15/12 after both signed for 32 points. With 5 Par 3s on the Valley course, NTPs were spread around between Jonathan, Samorn, Bill, with Mihail getting 2.
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.
