Bob Watson Announces His Return – Again
Greetings all. This Friday the Tropical Bert’s group met for breakfast before heading out to Treasure Hill Golf Course. The group hasn’t played here in a while and everyone was eager to again play this challenging course and its signature Alligator hole.
Treasure Hill is one of several courses going through maintenance and upgrades recently, and the results are excellent. The fairways are nice and the greens very lush – if maybe a bit slow for some people. This course is always challenging and if the Alligator doesn’t get you there is plenty of water and jungle to swallow your ball. Scores this day were on the low side. No one broke handicap and even points in the high 20’s was enough to secure a mention.
Bob Watson always announces his departure and arrivals in style. Some weeks ago we wrote he made his arrival back in Pattaya known by winning. Then Bob made sure we won’t soon forget him by winning the day before he returned home for a few weeks. Now Bob is back and guess what – everyone knows Bob is back because he won this day with a very respectable 35 points off his handicap of 4. Excellent golf Bob!
Landis Brooks (7) gave Bob a run for his money by taking second place with 34 points, and third place went to Graham Buckingham (21) with 30 points. To show how tough the course played, the fourth and fifth places each had 29 points, with Max Scott (5) winning on count back over Don Carmody (26).
