Jonathan Does the Double
Jonathan Pratt (10) got the week off to a good start at Pattavia, playing from the White tees at about 6600 yards. The course was in generally good condition, although the greens have had the pace taken out of them, to cater to the vociferous whiners who found them a bit too firey. But, having said that, they are the same for everybody, it is just a pity that the course’s main defense is dis-armed. Jonathan scored a solid 34 points, with 20 on the back 9, to just get the nod over Jeff on countback, after he could only manage 18 on the back. NTPs were shared between Jeff & Neil.
Pattana was the Thursday venue, from the White tees on the B & C combination at nearly 6700 yards. The course was in good condition, and under clear skies with a light breeze, it made for a fine day of golf. No-one really came to terms with the course, although there were some patches of good golf from several of the players. Jonathan Pratt (10) was able to maintain his form the best, to sign for 33 points, putting him well clear of Jeff Wylie (6) & Willem Lasonder (18), both on 30 points with Jeff getting the edge on countback 14/12. Jeff got the only 2 NTPs of the day.
Thanks to Martin Hayes for the opportunity for some of the SCR regulars to participate in Member’s Day at St Andrews. It was a long day, but we had a few laughs, got amongst the lucky draws and 1 of our crew could have a cheap new Mizuno driver for sale shortly!
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 (>60s) who have opted for the “Silver” tee option. Call 0890941841 for scheduling or enquiries.
Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing.
