Tropical Bert’s 14/06 & 18/06

Friday, 14 June, Pattana

The Course in very good condition as it seemed the recent rain showers had mostly missed this area. We did play lift, clean, and place in the fairways based on reports of some rain the day before. 17 players made the trip after 5 begged off because of the possibility of rain showers. Those 5 missed a very pleasant day out on a fine course. We played the “B” and “C” nines from the shorter,6400 yards, yellow tees. Over all the scores were good and the entire experience at this fine facility was pleasurable. Hopefully we can book it again in the next couple months on one of their Sports Days.

Results:

1st: Brian Parish (14) – 41 pts
2nd: Paul Alford (27) – 36 pts, c/b over,
3rd: Max Bracegirdle (27) – 36 pts, c/b over,
4th: Mark O’Callaghan (19) – 36 pts

Another trip up the 331 which is not as bad as it once was, but with more and more transport truck on the road one does need to allow plenty of time. Test for the day was the “A” and “C” nines as the “B” nine is still under some major renovation projects. We did get caught in a few very short rain showers but never enough to stop play. In fact it seemed that as soon as you got out the umbrella and covered your clubs, the shower was over and all went back to normal. Other than several bumpy greens due to the plugging of new grass, the course was in good condition. Being a Sports Day it was excellent value for the cost.

Results:

1st: Bob Watson (3) – 37 pts
2nd: Pierre Bietry (15) – 35 pts
3rd: Geoff Bracegirdle (27) – 34 pts, c/b over,
4th: Mick Coghlan (21) – 34 pts, c/b over,
5th: Max Scott (4) – 34 pts

Near Pins: Bob Watson, John McMahon, Dick Warberg, Brian Parish
