Tropical Bert’s 25/10
Friday October 25, Plutaluang North/West – ST
Bill and Kae Make A Dynamic Duo
With Second Road resurfacing mostly completed, getting to Tropical Bert’s for the Golfers breakfast & brew is a little smoother these days. Many golfers took advantage of this and there was a large crowd on hand to tackle the always interesting Navy Course. After the usual last minute adjustments for no-shows or walk-ins, by 8:30 everyone was assigned a ride and off we went.
Playing Navy is always interesting. With two complete courses those trying to get into “the zone” must wait until the last minute to know where to focus. The challenging and interesting layout keeps you on your toes, or it keeps you looking for lost balls. Today North and West were the courses of choice. Recent rains make all area courses play long due to almost total lack of roll, so the long Navy course played longer, and lift/clean/place was necessary. Dark skies, at moments very dark, made many wonder if rain or maybe that eclipse was about to happen, but all stayed dry.
Tough, long, interesting, damp… a combination to test all the golfers, and back at Bert’s with one shining exception the scores reflected this combination. Rising to the challenge – and then some – Bill Steinmann dominated with an amazing 42 points! Exceptional golf Bill, how did you do it? Next overall petite Kae Tusagad showed golf is a game of the mind by mastering the course and conditions with an excellent 36 points.
Bill Steinmann (10) 42 pts Alex Pedersen (9) 33 pts Ted Morris (15) 31 pts
Kae Tusagad (19) 36 pts Mike O’Brien (20) 34 pts Daryl Evans (23) 33 pts

Starting in November the “Tropical Golf” group will be playing out of the “BJ Holiday Lodge” on Soi 3 near Beach Road. More on this later, but the friendly group and other services will remain the same and all are welcome. Cheers.
