Tuesday was a visit to Plutaluang, with the East & South combination our allotted test of the day. Our octogenarian Kurt Erik Persson (24), enjoying his golf from the silver tees these days, who led the way, just edging Graham Briggs (25) on countback 20/18, after both signed for 36 points. The course was in good condition, with the greens running true, although a tad on the slow side compared to the majority of other local courses. NTPs went to Joel, Owen & Jeff with 2.
Thursday saw a small field, (after a few no shows), travel to Greenwood, with the C & A 9s to be our day’s test. These 2 x 9s are the best combination, in my opinion, with some testing par 4s, the equal of any in the area. Greens were running smoothly, and the pace was a bit up from Tuesday’s venue. Willem Lasonder (21), fresh from a great score of 44 points on an away trip, maintained some of his form to lead the way with 36 points, ahead of Jeff Wylie (5) who struggled to 34 points for the 2nd time this week.
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.
