Siam Country Resort 30/09
Weather the Major Factor
Tuesday was a visit to Pattavia, with intermittent rain over pretty much the whole day, and with carts not allowed on the fairways, we implemented lift, clean & place through the green. Not heavy enough to stop play, just sufficient to keep the cover on the bag, to keep the grips dry. Jeff Wylie (7) led the way home today, with Neil Harvey (17) in 2nd spot. Highlight of the day had to be Jonathan’s NTP on the Par 3, 7th, knocking Jeff off the marker after he had stiffed it to make an easy 2. Jonathan and Neil shared the NTPs with 2 each.
Thursday we went to Khao Kheow following a visit the week before, when we had played C & B which was in great condition. This week we were sent to the C & A combination, and while the C is in great nick, unfortunately the A is in relatively poor condition, with grass covering sparse in some areas over several of the fairways. Hole A8 is currently playing as a medium length par 4 as the tee has been moved forward 50+ yards while some renovations are undertaken. Jeff Wylie (7) led the way with a solid 33 points, with Jonathan Pratt (11) on 30 points collecting the 2nd prize. Despite the par 3s being collectively easier than Pattavia’s, only 2 were won today, Jeff & Willem with 1 each, Willem converting for a nice 2 on A5.
