Siam Country Resort we 08/08
Tuesday was a visit to Emerald, which has been the subject of some rather negative reports of late. We found the course to be in generally satisfactory condition, however the grounds staff maybe could have opted to keep GUR areas on 10 & 11 marked. The greens were all ok, with them rolling smooth & true for the most part. A good sized field today with a couple of newbies, so it was welcome to Sar for her 1st ever on course game & Stuart from Jomtien via Qatar. Brian Maddox (22) was the leader of the field with 38 points, after a blistering 24 on the front, with a wipe! Next best was Owen Walkley (12) with 35 points while Jonathan Pratt (10) just edged Jeff Wylie (5) on the last 6 holes 14/12, after both signed for 34 points. NTPs were spread around, with Brian, Owen, On & Sar getting collects.
Thursday saw us travel North along Hwy 331 to Pattana, with the C & A combination to be our test for the day. Being a par 73, this combo is a tad longer than most of the courses we play, (even from the Whites), which obviously suited Jeff Wylie (5) as he signed for a day’s best of 40 points. Jeff gained some revenge from Tuesday over Jonathan Pratt (10) who was next best with 28 points. Jeff was obviously hitting it pretty well as he also collected 3 NTPs.
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.
