SIAM Country Resort we 24/07
Tuesday was a visit to arguably 1 of the best courses in the area, Khao Kheow, where we played the B & C loops, from the Yellow tees at about 6480 yards. The course was in good condition overall, while the weather was hot and humid, with just a light breeze to relieve the conditions. Neil Harvey (19) continued his good form with a days best of 39 points, to be 5 clear Martin Hayes (16) & Jeff Wylie (6), with Martin edging Jeff for 2nd spot on countback 19/16. Jeff got some consolation collecting 3 NTPs with Jonathan getting the remaning 1.
A visit to Crystal Bay was the Thursday venue, the C & A combination being the test of the day. Daniel Oshiro (23) returned from a long absence from SCR with an outstanding 44 points, to put the rest of the fielfd in the shade. We played from the White tees today, at about 6450 yards, with the fairways being in good condition, while the greens were patchy at best. They lack any consistency of roll as there are several types of grass across the entire surface, making putting more a lottery than a test of skill. Behind Daniel’s score, the best of the rest was Neil Harvey (19) with 36 points, also picking up a NTP. Daniel, Willem & Jonathan also scored NTP rewards.
The PSC Monthly tournament held at Pattana B & C this month was well supported by SCR, but sadly (for us anyway) nobody got amongst the prizes, although Jim, Willem & Jeff did benefit from the lucky draws.
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.
