Siam Country Resort we 19/09
Willem & Trev Stars of the East
Tuesday saw the group visit Eastern Star, under clear skies, with the course in generally good order, with a small number of greens having some patches replaced. The gents played from the White tees at a testing 6500+ yards, providing a good test for all. Despite the good golfing conditions, scores were modest, with golfers having difficulty putting 2 good 9s together. Willem Lasonder (18) & Trevor Taylor (34) led the way with 31 points, Willem getting the nod after signing for 19 points on the back 9, to Trev’s 16. NTPs went to K, Jonathan & Jeff with 2.
Thursday saw a small field play Greenwood, with the C & B combination the allocated test of the day. The weather was terrible, with the rain starting after a few holes, and continuing through most of the day, before abating with only 2 or 3 holes to go. The course was very wet tee to green, with the greens holding up very well, considering the amount of rain falling. No competition was completed due to ongoing withdrawals as the poor weather continued.
Friday was the PSC T/ment at Greenwood, and the conditions could not have been more different, as we had clear skies, and the course had dried out considerably. Willem got edged from the prizes on a countback in C flight, while Jeff scored a NTP in A flight, but Jim & Willem did not go home empty handed, as both scored a lucky draw.
