Siam Country Resort we 02/05
Lightning Strikes Twice
Only shortly after Songkran when players avoided the water, there was no escaping this week as not only rain but heavy electrical activity in the air. Pattavia was the venue for Tuesday, when players had to take shelter at about the halfway mark of the round. The course was in good condition and quickly drained was back to playable after about 45 minutes with the weather holding off for the balance of the round. Jonathan Pratt (10) continued his recent resurgence with a solid 35 from the White tees at about 6600 yards, just tipping out Jeff Wylie (7) who could manage only 34 points. Sam was the sole winner of an NTP this week with the small field.
Thursday was a holiday, so we opted for a Friday game at Wangjuntr Highland, as it had been a while since our last trip, plus we had a couple of debutants who had not played there before. As the headline alludes to, we once again were caught out by the weather, with a severe electrical storm and associated deluge necessitating a rest stop of 1 ½ + hours. However the course was playable in surprisingly quick time, so it was onwards and upwards from Hole 6 on, with lift, clean & place to ensure fairness for all. There was no competition today, to ensure everybody had time to “smell the roses” as it were, with this course striking for both it’s views & hazards. I will say that Jonathan played well in patches, but all attendees enjoyed the course and the day, despite the extended delay making it an after dark return to SCR.
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.
