The Growling Swan 02/07
Khao Kheow – 2nd JULY, 2015
Peter Bailey takes the chocolates and Bails.
On a sunny Thursday morning 16 golfers departed from The Growling Swan heading to the great course of Khao Kheow CC, a rated course to many of our golfers in Pattaya.
We played A and B Nines in that order. The course was in great condition, as always, not showing any signs that we are in desperate need for rain. The day was steamy with the temperature rising as the day went on. We played off the yellow tees with plenty of run on the fairways. Greens played as they always do at KKCC. Peter Bailey (our winner on the day) played a near perfect front nine, unfortunately that changed on the back nine as John Anderson started giving him advice.
1st Peter Bailey (15) 38pts

Back at the bar, it was bought to our attention that Bus Captain Graham Rice had got off the bus leaving the Near Pin and Long Putt markers on the bus. Well done Ricey!
For some serious golf with a dash of fun, the Growling Swan welcomes golfers of all persuasions. We generally play on Mondays and Thursdays at any one of the fine courses around Pattaya. Please contact Peter Grey for bookings or any information on 0861 503086.
The Growling Swan also caters to the bowls enthusiasts. Bus transport departs the GS on Wednesdays at 10 AM to play at Cocos on undercover synthetic greens and on Sundays at the same time for open grass bowling at The Retreat. Please contact Paul Rennison on 0843 454005 if you wish to partake. The cost including return bus transport, bowling fees and a hot lunch is less than 400 baht so great value for a day out.
