Siam Country Resort w/e 17/10
Tuesday was a visit to Mountain Shadow, with the course in good condition when compared to some others which are struggling with soggy fairways. We played from the Blue Tees at less than 6300 yards on this tree lined course which features several dogleg holes. Owen Walkley (11) continued his recent domination of competitions, as his handicap heads back down, with a clear victory over the field with 40 points. Next best was regular visitor from Qatar, Stan Rees (24) with 36 points, while Stuart Banks (20) also from Qatar was next best with 34 points. NTPs went to Hidde, Jeff & Jonathan with 2.
Thursday was a visit to Treasure Hill, where we started off under clear skies, with the course in reasonable condition considering recent rains and renovation work. It was not too long before the dark clouds started to roll in, & the heavens opened, with some accompanying distant electrical action. Groups took appropriate shelter as conditions dictated in various parts of the course. Most scores deteriorated markedly under the adverse conditions, but our winner of the day, Neil Harvey (17) just got better as it got wetter. A well compiled 35 points was 4 points clear of Brian Maddox (23) with a further 4 points back to 3rd & 4th, which required a countback to separate Qatar visitor Keith Barker (5) & Jeff Wylie (5). Jeff had a disastrous back 9 making it pretty much a no contest, with Keith getting the nod 12/8. NTPs were spread around between Dave, Martin & Joop.
