PSC Golf from SIAM Country Resort
Paddy to the Fore of Five
Eastern Star was our venue for Tuesday, playing from the Whites at a little over 6500 yards, under clear skies with a light breeze. Pretty much perfect conditions for golf, with the course maintaining a good level of maintenance currently, fairways running out and greens rolling true. Jeff Wylie (6) was a clear leader with 38 points, while the battle for the minor placings was torrid, being settled on a 5 way countback. Yes, 5 players, all with 30 points, and it was Paddy Devereux (21) getting the nod with a mammoth 21 points on the back 9. He was followed by Yves (33) with 18, Jonathan (10) 17, Martin (15) 16 and Neil (19) with 15. Neil & Yves had to be content with joining Jeff in picking up a NTP.
Thursday saw us travel to Rayong CC, under threatening skies, which eventually opened up with some rain, but not enough to deter our hearty bunch. We played from the Whites, at just under 6400 yards, although it did seem to play longer, or maybe it is just me getting older. The course is in reasonable condition, for the price, and although it may not fill the bill of some, it provides a good test, with at least 2 holes being amongst the most testing of any in the area. Jonathan Pratt (10) played some good golf, but a lost ball on the last, let Jeff Wylie (6) equal his score of 33 points, and squeak past him for 1st on countback 17/14. NTPs went to Martin, Jonathan & Jeff.
A good contingent of SCR golfers went to Pattana on Wednesday with the PAGS tournament, which was dogged by some heavy rain at times. Not our best day, result wise, but we still had some fun and everybody that attended the presentation, went home with at least a lucky draw.
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.
Paddy, Countback King!”
