SIAM Country Resort we 24/10
No Bikes, Just Buggies
Tuesday was a visit to the often maligned Eastern Star, where we found the course to be in more than acceptable condition. The fairways were rolling out, which is the exception at the moment, with many courses unable to get the mowers out regularly. A small minority of greens had some repair work, but overall they were in satisfactory condition, rolling consistently. In reference to the headline, we had Rick Bevington (22), of Bikes for Tykes notoriety, play with us today and gain 2nd spot a solitary point behind Jeff Wylie (7) with 35 points. NTPs went to Paul Taylor & Jeff, with 2 unwon, so we will donate that prize money to Rick’s Bikes for Tykes charity.
Thursday was a Public Holiday, so to avoid the extra charges, we shifted our game to Friday and went to Wangjuntr to play the Valley course. We played this day as a social day, with the choice of tees up to the individual, as the course has some challenging holes. The fairways were the converse of Eastern Star, with very little roll, due to them being quite long as the weather has not been mower friendly. There was plenty of work going on this day, so with a run of favourable conditions they will be back to their normal state. Several memorable holes, but the elevated par 3, 17th ate Gerd’s & Dan’s lunch, while Jeff flew the green & got a great ricochet off the rocks, only to leave his birdie putt a roll short.
