Paddy Purrs @ Pleasant Valley
Tuesday was a visit to Pleasant Valley where the course looked in good condition, however on closer inspection there was a lot of water lying on fairways from an overnight storm. This required carts to stay on the paths, so we played lift, clean & place in line with PSC guidelines. Obviously this suited Paddy Devereux (22) as he found some form to record 37 points, ahead of Willem Lasonder (20) who signed for 35 points. Paddy also got a NTP along with Joel & Jeff with 2.
Thursday was a long awaited return to Crystal Bay, where we were allocated the C & A combination. The fairways here were in good order, while the greens were reasonable, at only a shadow of their former glory, when they were certainly amongst the best in the area. We teed off under clear skies with a good 1 club breeze, which abated as the day wore on, making it hot & humid. Jeff Wylie (6) & Peter Fitton (14) needed a countback to decide the winner after both signed for 33 points. Jeff getting the nod 16/14, however Peter was also amongst the NTP winners, with Willem, Owen & Jeff.
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.
