Siam Country Resort we 30/08
Brace Yourself ! Owen Leads the Way.
Tuesday saw us visit Khao Kheow, with the A & C the combination played from the Yellow Tees at a tad over 6300 yards. The B loop renovation is nearing completion, another week or 2 and it will be available for play, so I am told. Several holes at KK are not currently up to the usual high standard expected after many years of playing this venue, but I am sure the management will get it in order in the near future. Owen Walkley (13) came to grips best with the day’s conditions to sign for a respectable 34 points. Phill Waite (13), making his return to golf after being hit by a ball several weeks ago, managed to score 2nd spot with a solid 31 points. NTPs went to Phill, Jonathan & Jeff with 2.
Phoenix was our venue for Thursday, with the Mountain & Lakes being the allotted test, while Ocean continues with it’s maintenance. With tees well forward to near the Yellows on Mountain, the course was playing at just under 6000 yards. Jeff Wylie (5) maintained some form over the shortened 18 holes to shoot 72 and sign for 41 points. Martin Hayes (13) playing with Jeff, was going shot for shot, but faded on the last few holes to finish with 36 points collecting 3rd place. New lady player Noo Pulbrook (13) almost made a dream start to playing with SCR, scoring 40 points to just be edged into 2nd spot. NTPs were spread around between Jeff, Phill & Martin.
Wednesday was the PAGS Tournament at Eastern Star, with a group of 4 representatives from SCR, Willem, Jonathan, Jeff & Paddy, making a good showing. Names were written on several Technicals, with Willem & Jeff also getting runner up spots in their flights.
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.
