Tropical Golf 05/02
Friday, Feb 05, 2016, Thai Navy – St
Landis, Tom H, and Paul W Sail Home At Navy
Time once again for the Tropical Golfers to try their best at Navy (Plutaluang) golf course. A slightly smaller field of eighteen golfers signed up to give it a go. After breakfast, during which there was much joking about fellow golfers who also play Bridge, breakfast and beverages were finished, and cars were on their way.
Unlike last month there were plenty of Caddies waiting for us. We were assigned the tough but scenic and quite interesting North and West courses. That means “The Lighthouse” was waiting! The weather was sunny and breezy – breezy enough so that umbrellas had to stay folded most of the time, but overall good golf weather. The North/West courses are difficult and not a single golfer made handicap, but a few came quite close!
Three golfers tied with 35 points, so it went to complicated countback to determine who gets to be called Winner. Countback went to Landis Brooks (h’cap 8) who showed his skill maneuvering around the tricky layout, followed by Tom Herrington (14), and big Paul Weatherly (21). Well played all, at it just goes to show it pays to finish strong. Tom McDowell (20) won the last spot on countback over Don Carmody (25).
