The Growling Swan 02/11
Treasure Hill – 2nd October, 2015
Gentlemen Jim Groves Rocks The Croc.
There were 18 eager golfers waiting to get out and have crack at the great course that was presented to us at Treasure Hill. It would be somewhat remiss of me not to mention the treatment that we have received from our hosts. They have maintained the pricing for not just The Growling Swan but other (PSC) Golf Clubs for a good period of time including going into High Season!
Can’t report too much as this scribe did not play on the day!
Taking out The Chocolates today was gentleman Jim Groves with a very good score with the next 4 placings going to the countback, in the count back was Ebrahim, JC Lhoste, Sal Brizzi and Kissy Buchanan. With another 5 coming in 1 shot behind these guys!
1st Jim Groves (12) 38 pts
2nd Ebrahim (17) 33 pts
3rd J.C. Lhoste (29) 33 pts
4th Keith Buchanan (17) 33 pts
5th Sal Brizzi (5) 33 pts

Deefa, the Growling Swan charity mutt, snaffled many donations and the players are thanked for their continued contributions to assist the needy children of Pattaya.
Back at ‘The Swan’ into the throffies and plenty of tales as to how it should have gone, in speaking to one of the bus captains I asked as to why it was late getting back. His reponse was, ”Ask squeaky clean McGarvie” it appears the Shooter has a fondness for a hot shower. I guess it could be worse.
For serious golfing 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 086 1503 086.
The Growling Swan also caters to the bowls enthusiasts. Bus transport departs the GS on Sundays at the 10 am 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.
