The Growling Swan 30/08
Pattaya CC – Stableford
Toddy takes it from The Colonel!
Thirteen golfers with expectations high gathered for the Growling Swan’s monthly outing to Pattaya CC. This is a course that improves with every visit and once again, we were not disappointed. The recent rain had certainly helped as this left the fairways in good nick.
The management team must be complimented as the level of service provided at Pattaya Country Club continues to rule in the region.
The weather was somewhat overcast, to start, with no threat of rain. But as the day got longer the sun had appeared and this mad it a little uncomfortable.
Martin Todd rose to the top to win by 2 points from the Colonel who finished 2 ahead of 3 players tied on 34 points, Paul Jackson winning this count back from John Anderson and Khan Speechley.
