Tuesday was a trip to Mountain Shadow, where we played from the Blue tees at around 6200 yards. With clear skies and a light breeze, the course was playing well with the fairways having some run, while the greens were true, although not quite as treacherous as they can be at times. Willem Lasonder (19) made it 2 weeks in a row, pipping Jeff Wylie (8) on countback 20/19 after both signed for a steady 36 points. NTPs went to Neil, Martin & Jeff with 2.
Pattavia was the venue for Thursday’s game, from the White tees at around 6600 yards. The humidity was up, but with a bit of cloud cover and a light breeze, conditions were fine for golf in the tropics. The course was in decent condition, although it is quite dry in areas, with the greens having a bit more grass on them, making them significantly slower than when at their best. Jonathan Pratt (12) who has been battling the dreaded 2 way miss from the tee of late, hit some form with a good 38 points, edging Martin Hayes (15) into 2nd, after a solid 37 points. NTPs went to Neil with 2, Jeff & 1 went unwon, (is that a word)?
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.
