Yves Has a Hit
Tuesday was a visit to Pattavia, where we played from the Whites at about 6600 yards, with the course in generally good condition, although the greens have been neutralised a bit, to make them a little more user friendly. Personally I think this is a bit of a shame, as the greens are Pattavia’s key defense, they are on the small side & the pace combined with the slopes is what provides the major challenge. Yves Philibert (33) was best able to come to terms with the challenges of the day with a fine 38 points, helped in part by a spectacular birdie 2 on the par 3, 17th which netted him a 5 pointer. Jeff Wylie (6) was best of the rest with 35 points, to go with his 2 NTPs. As mentioned before Yves got 1 of the other NTPs, while Neil knocked the flag out on 13, to make a nice birdie also.
Pleasant Valley was our Thursday venue, from the Blues at about 6300 yards, with the course in fair condition, as it was a little damp following some heavy overnight rain. Having said that, my group only required 1 or 2 casual water drops for the round, most of the damper spots being before the fairways started. Best score of the day was 34 points from Jeff Wylie (6), ahead of Martin Hayes (15) with 32. NTPs went to Neil, Paddy & Jeff.
Friday was the PSC Monthly which SCR supports every month, with Pleasant Valley the venue, and today PSC implemented lift, clean & place. A flight were from the Blue, and it was Jeff Wylie who led the way with an unspectacular 80, nett 74, while in the B flight from the Whites, Willem Lasonder (18) was 1 of 3 players to sign for 41 points, eventually getting 2nd spot after losing on the last 3 in the countback process. I must shout out a congrats to all winners on the day, but a special mention to Mike Allidi who won the Low Gross with 72, an outstanding score compared to the rest.
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.
Tuesday winner, Yves
